Stackoverflow uses earned points as bounties you can set for questions that have not been answered in 2 days.

Recently I have started posting bitcoin bounties on by questions to see if they get answered faster. I don't put it in the main question (I feel that would interfere with the flow), but I put it in the comment. Here is what I wrote:

"0.25 bitcoins to whoever can gets me the best usable answer in the next 2 days. Just put your address in the comment to your answer."

Comments are nice because you can edit them/remove them after the fact. I plan on changing it to say:

"(edited) 0.25 bitcoin reward paid out to JohnSmith for his excellent answer."

Wow, that's a really great idea. I like how it doesn't require any extra software and basically creates a real bounty system.

I am thinking this could be used anywhere. Even in internal ticket systems, or issues on a github repository. The important thing is that it is judged by the person who does the paying. No fancy voting system needed.

I was thinking of building a bounty system for all sorts of things where people all put money into an address and when someone does something to achieve that bounty it gets paid out. The verification part just seemed like it would get too complicated and too subject to gaming/hacking.

An adhoc system can just be layered on top of all current systems, and human judgement is the protection against hackers.

Here is a crazy way to get something implemented in some super closed company when you submit a feature request.

Submit the request, and state in it:

"I set up this bitcoin address:
asjfljwlejrlew
with this private key
ajsfljweiruwour

If this ever gets implemented by anyone in your company in the next 6 months I will send 10 BTC to that address."

This will appear in their bug tracking system, and someone will nudge it to get done, just to yank the coins out the second they appear.

Stack Exchange community/mods frown upon posting bounties for questions. I posted such a bounty once, and the question was edited, and the bounty removed.

Still, I feel there's great value in this (posted this half a year ago).

BTW, note that you can't really edit comments after a few minutes. You can post a new one.

Yep, just realized that. You can delete them, and post a new one, which is just as good.

This is NOT allowed at stackoverflow, it's a quick way to get your question removed. The only thing you can offer, is your own reputation point as bounty.

Doesn't the top billing link on Bitcoin.org draw enough users already where that place doesn't have to be spammed here and users lured with bounties   Huh
