In celebration of reaching the 50,000 point milestone on Mathematica.StackExchange thanks to your generous voting: I would like to announce an initiative to give something back to the community.
I have observed that time and again certain excellent answers or fascinating questions do not receive the attention or reward (points) that I believe they deserve. Therefore:
- Please find valuable questions and answers that you feel have been under-recognized
- Submit an answer for each post with a link and the reasons that it is outstanding
- Vote up or down on the posts submitted by others
I shall return every* point I gain in the next ten days as Bounties on these posts.
I shall have final prerogative over which posts to Bounty and by what amount but all the points shall be awarded.
If I am on my game I anticipate at least a thousand points to contribute, but as there are many worthy Q&A's I encourage other users to consider applying bounties as well if they wish.
Should anyone choose to join me in placing bounties please spread these out over a length of time so that the site will not be flooded by bounties and the effect of them be diluted. (It is my primary intention for these Bounties to draw attention to these posts. Of course the "points" would not be diluted but if all the bounties appear in the same week and disappear just as quickly it will not serve this purpose.) Perhaps as a guide-line if there are already five active bounties do not place another until some have been awarded.
*except for any bounties I should personally receive in that period
Ten days have elapsed and I have 1450 points to distribute as Bounties.
You may continue to submit posts for consideration as you find them.
