Coming though featured (bountied) questions gave me an idea: that would be really a gesture of ultra-fair play or "tour de force" (sorry for my english, don't know the right word for it) worth gold badge to upvote a competing answer when bounty is in place! Or, upvote X such competing answers.

The badge could be named like Old Shatterhand badge - just an idea :), or whatever better name you can invent. It could be considered a gold version of Sportsmanship. Well, not exactly, for sportsmanship the limit is 100 answers, for bountied questions the number X should be probably much lower. So one could end up with Old Shatterhand but not Sportsmanship then.

Or, which I like even better, don't put the X too high but put even harder condition - upvote competing answer with higher or equal number of votes than your own answer. Before the bounty was awarded of course.

    What is "Old Shatterhand"? Is that a movie reference I'm not familiar with? – Cody Gray Aug 15 '11 at 14:19

    @Cody! Don't say you don't know Old Shatterhand! It was childhood hero of my generation. Your generation already doesn't now it? Don't say or I will start feeling old at my 34! :-) – Tomas Aug 15 '11 at 15:13
  • Hmm, maybe it's a cultural thing. I've never heard of it, and neither have my parents. – Cody Gray Aug 16 '11 at 9:53
  • @Cody, actually yes, may be! – Tomas Aug 17 '11 at 19:23
