This question already has an answer here:
So I have a bounty of 500 pending on a question that I wrote. Two different persons answered the question two different ways and I want to reward both. I have discovered (to my dismay) that I can't split the bounty, so I thought I will award it twice, since I am allowed to place a second bounty on my question. But there is this weird bounty-doubling rule and I am already at the max, and I did not see a tag or link to place another bounty on this.
It will be very painful to award this bounty to just one of the answers, and I am willing to lose another 500 rep to award it to two answers, but I cannot see how to do that.
What can I do?
