This question is about the maximum number of active bounties one user can have at any given point of time. Why do we have such a limitation? Why only 3 bounties?
I have asked some questions on this site that did not receive an answer. I understand that nobody owes me an answer but I want to maximize my chances, so to speak. Being able to post only 3 bounties seriously limits the rate at which these questions are going to get processed (each bounty lasts a week).
I guess one possible answer is that you do not want too many bounties (which would dilute the distinction between a bountied and an unbountied question). But then, I am paying hard MO points, honestly earned by posting content the community appreciates.
If you think that the current minimum amount of rep investment required to start a bounty is too little, fine, I get you. Let us increase the number of rep points per each consecutive bounty (e.g. +25/bounty). I mean, this is a free country, if a person wants a service and is willing to pay, why not offer this service? If you do not provide it, I might just take my MO points elsewhere.
