Can I put a bounty on a community wiki question? While I haven't found any information eliminating this possibility, I have also not found a confirmation answer. Given the special nature of CW questions, I'd like to make sure that bountifiability doesn't die with communitywikification.
Further to this, what happens when multiple users contribute to one post?
I assume it gets awarded to the person who originally posted the answer, which seems a little unfair if someone else contributes to the answer (which is hte idea of CWiki..), but splitting the bounty between contributors would be abuse-prone (people doing meaningless edits just before the bounty is awarded etc)
Do you even gain rep from an accepted answer of a Community Wiki question (I can't remember off the top of my head). If you can gain rep from a correct answer (which I want to say is not the case), then I would suspect you should be able to set a bounty...
But I do not believe that is true. I believe setting a rep on a bounty (if it were in fact possible) would be more like throwing away rep than anything else.
It's happened. For example: this question
Yet the FAQ seems wrong on this point:
Of course, bounty awards, like all accepted answers, are immune to the daily reputation cap and community wiki mode.
