The 2018 Easter Bounty Bonanza
For the whole month of April we will be running a bounty giveaway. Users sign up and agree to place and keep three bounties live during the entire month. In other words, each participant starts with three bounties on the 1st of April, and must end with three bounties on the 30th of April. Whenever a bounty is awarded or expire, it must be replaced by another bounty.
Mark created a chat event for the Bonanza. Participating users are advised to register for the event.
Each user adds an answer to this Meta post detailing which questions they have offered bounties on and the date (UTC). These will then be checked and validated by another user. The answer should look something like this:
Total number of bounties: 1
- Date - Question link - Bounty value - Validated by
- 1st April 2018 - Doing stops on Italian regional trains. How long exactly is the ticket valid? - 100 - Mark Mayo
The answer should also be marked as community wiki to allow all users to validate the bounties (low reputation users can't edit non-community wiki answers without having to await review).
Winners and Prizes
At the end of the competition, the winners will be forever honoured in our hall of fame. Mark will give a bonus of 1000 rep to the winner.
Finding a Bounty-Worthy Question
Not to worry. The final day of March 2018 is for the "Great Flood of Bounty Worthy Questions", where we flood the site with incredibly wonderful questions that can be bountied. The winner of that mini-competition gets street-cred for creativity. Register on the event for that as well!
Still can't find any?
Not to worry. Any question will do. Answered, unanswered, old, new, whatever... As long as it's a real question that is half-way decent, you can put a bounty on it to bring it more attention. Remember, the big objective here is to have a bounty bonanza that attracts lots of new people from other SO sites who see what's on and think, "...hey! I can pick up some rep over on Travel by collecting a few bounties...". Maybe they will, maybe they won't, but perhaps a few will go on to become great TSE companions.
Don't have rep to spare for bounties?
Not to worry. If you want to participate but are struggling with reputation, see "finding a bounty worthy question" above. You can jump in and help by saving up some incredibly fascinating questions. Do you like to prospect for investment properties while travelling for leisure? Do you like to go ice-fishing in the Hudson Bay? Are you looking for a place to go bead-begging when the Mardi Gras is over? Did you ever think about wind-surfing down the Danube? Why is there a golf club next to Nuuk airport? Which parts of the underground city in Verona are open to the public? Put your thinking caps on!
