What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

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 userscripts.org 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.
