I made a very silly mistake in iOS and it was delaying my app release indefinitely. I asked the question without getting a single response until a user finally suggested what I was doing wrong.
In my eyes I see this answer as being very helpful but I also see bounty type answers as very detailed, specific and taking a lot of effort and thought to answer.
I always want to use Stack Overflow in the most appropriate way. Is it appropriate to award a bounty manually to a person because of how helpful it was to me in my situation or is it really meant for exceptional answers?
I want to give the answerer an extra 50 points of reputation for being able to pinpoint exactly what I did wrong. Is that an acceptable use of bounties?
