One of the problems on StackExchange sites is that questions don't always receive good answers. While unanswered questions are easy to find, this is not the case with questions that have one or more answers that don't meet the criteria of the question asker (or other members on the site).

For this reason, I am drawing some inspiration from other sites, such as Programming Puzzles & Code Golf and Puzzling:

This is a list of unofficial, deadline-less (hence not searchable) bounties offered by users on various challenges on the main site.

The list need not be limited to questions that already have an answer. You can offer bounties both for your own questions and for other people's questions.

Disclaimer: There is no guarantee that the user will award the bounty for you in case you fulfil its requirement. Especially if the user isn't an active member anymore. The only guarantee is his/her written word.

Guidelines for updating

  • To add a bounty, create an answer that contains a link to the question that needs a (better) answer and the bounty you are willing to award.
    • Answers can be sorted to see which bounties are newest.
    • Answers can be commented on, allowing someone to notify the bounty's creator that the bounty may have been earned.
  • If a bounty is awarded, delete the meta answer.

I offer bounties on:


I am offering a bounty on one of my unanswered questions: Why does the narrator quote a letter by a young footman near the end of Le Côté de Guermantes? Since it is a question that requires of Proust's À la recherche du temps perdu, which is after all a novel in seven volumes, the bounty will be at least 100 reps. (Guessing won't be rewarded, obviously.)


I am offering a bounty of at least 100 reps on another of my questions: Was Hendrik Conscience's novel The Lion of Flanders (De Leeuw van Vlaanderen) the first work inspired by the Battle of the Golden Spurs?. If such an older work of literature exists, it is likely to be in French, not in Dutch, so some research in the history of French literature will be required. However, the existence of an older work in Dutch cannot be excluded, since the Battle of the Golden Spurs was won by the Flemish, not by the French.
