I'd like to create some bounties for this community wiki post, and award them the user(s) that contributes the most useful content.
But because it's a community wiki for a proposed Meta-FAQ section, most contributors are likely to be editors, and you can't award bounties to an editor.
Would it be acceptable to create a post that has a sole purpose of drawing attention to a community wiki post, and for placing/awarding bounties to contributing users of the CW post?
The 2nd side post would basically say something like this, although with more detail:
I am looking for contributors to consolidate all the MSO posts on topic X into this FAQ-Proposed post. If you help out with this task, post an answer here saying you contributed, and I will be reviewing the posts/edits done to the CW post and awarding bounties for them here.
Once the CW post is fully answered, I would flag my 2nd post for deletion.
Bart has pointed out that deleting the bounty post would get rid of the bounty rep awarded on it, so I would not delete the post afterwards. Or at least, I would wait 60 days before deleting it, providing I can confirm the bounty rep won't disappear after that the way vote rep does not disappear if the post is older than 60 days.
