Apologies in advance if this question is boorish.

  1. Is there something similar to Reddit's /r/freegold/ for bounties? /r/FreeKarma4U is less germane, as it's more alike to upvotes here.

Eg, my family and I are unskillful at computers and have many questions of obvious public interest and benefit at Super User, but I don't have enough reputation to keep placing bounties.

  1. Am I allowed to post on a SE's meta to request this?

    Some users advertise their willingness to offer bounties in their user profile. Skim through that list and see how they prefer to be contacted if they are open for that. – rene Dec 7 '18 at 8:13

  • @gnat I can't find where this specific question is answered in the FAQ ... apparently it's not asked frequently enough. – Glorfindel Dec 7 '18 at 14:41

No. Individual sites may have a meta post or a chatroom dedicated to bounties; if you have a plan to regain reputation (see below), you could try posting your non-official bounty there.

You can try, but I guess such a post will be met with down- and close votes. E.g. here on Meta we have a close reason "This question does not appear to seek input and discussion from the community."

Super User has a lot of posts which can be made better by grammar/spelling corrections and formatting improvements. If you restrict to suggesting edits on relatively new posts, I guess they will happily accept your edits; a bounty costs only 25 approved edits, and since you can gain 1000 reputation from suggested edits, that's enough fuel for 20 bounties.
