I don't mean to sound selfish, here, but, I need to register two minor "complaints".
Many of my yeshiva rebbeim taught me that the question is always more important than the answer. So, in actuality, I'm registering two related complaints:
1 - Do you have a "Best Questions" contest? Maybe I missed seeing this.
2 - It's nice that you award bounties to the answerer. But, seriously, without the question being there, you wouldn't have the answer, and hence, no award, correct? In other words, the questioner offered the opportunity for the answer. So, what about in addition to the award for the answerer, giving half that amount to the questioner?
Call this a "minor" complaint. I'm not fretting over your current policy. I just think that what I mentioned sounds fair.
