Sometimes you have a question which doesn't get a good answer.
So you leave a bounty.
It still doesn't get a good answer.
I propose that the system allow you to post another bounty after the first has expired, even if you selected an answer, or an answer was auto selected.
- Solve the problem of people complaining that they can't change their bountied question's accepted answers (they can re-bounty, wait a day or two, then change their selection)
- Allow people to re-feature their question again if they received no acceptable answer.
We would place one important restriction:
- New bounties must cost 100 more than the previously requested bounty
This self limits the number of times a question can be featured to 5 (35 days), as once it's 450 or 500, it can't be offered again. It would also self-limit due to the cost - but those that wanted to spend the 1,250 rep could have their question featured for the full period of time.
All other rules would remain the same - auto accept would still happen only for those answers posted after the new bounty with +2 votes, etc.
