Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Since many "questions" at stackapps are actually finished scripts (e.g. this) I'd like to be able to award a bounty to the script itself.

Since you're linking to my script: I appreciate it, but honestly, it feels a lot more rewarding when I see that a script is actually in use – e.g. be cause the "installed X times" number on goes up, or I notice in screenshots that my script is running there, or people give feedback and suggestions, or leave nice comments, etc.

Especially in a place like StackApps, where people list the stuff they have created, the best way to pat people on the back is: actually using the stuff. Because, you know, it's awesome to see people use the stuff you created.

Another example: My Unicornify question has a score of 199, but what's really awesome is that Unicornify serves 3 requests per second because people actually implemented it on their sites.
