I posted a bounty on this question, which despite the bounty got no (serious) attention. I am now seriously considering putting up another bounty for the coming week and noticed I have to wait for 24 hours before I can do so (despite there being no answer to award the bounty to). So, the first feature request is to allow posting bounties during the grace period.
- A user posts a bounty (costing it's full reputation cost)
- For 7 days nobody is able to figure out a solution
- On the 8th day he wants to post a new bounty and believes no answer deserves the bounty, likely also meaning no answer has at least two upvotes. This removes the original bounty from the system and a new bounty is posted (costing the new full bounty reputation)
Originally this post had another secondary idea as well (upgrading bounties during the grace period), which is now posted seperatedly after multiple people asking for this.
