I've awarded a +100 bounty to this answer. but there is a second answer that uses a different approach to the derivation that I find equally helpful, and I would like to award a second +100. When I click the start a bounty button, the lowest available number is +200.

A work-around would be to "borrow" some, but I'm asking here if there is a way within the stackexchange system to do this.

Further, is there an existing rationale for blocking any value below 200, or is it just a bufeature? (a bug retroactively defined as a feature)?

Subsequent bounties have to go up in value. It seems people were taking advantage of the system. See https://meta.stackexchange.com/a/64826/155668 for the details.

  • $\begingroup$ Wow, 2010! I haven't ever been linked to something that old before. I wonder if the current solution is still the best, considering seven years of experience and development of SE. But I don't wonder nearly enough to raise the question. Thanks for the speedy reply and history lesson! $\endgroup$
