What are your feelings about offering a bounty for deciding or evaluating an answer to a MO question?
Background of this post is that I have provided two answers to a highly upvoted question with many followers; while the first answer was based on a misinterpretation of the problem, the second answer was based on the patiently provided clarification by Fedor Petrov in comments to my first answer.
Now, while there was vivid feedback to the wrong answer, there was no reaction whatsoever to the second one, of which I am convinced that it solves the problem or at least provides new ideas for a solution.
I regret adding a comment to my second answer, asking the PO for review because I suppose there are reasons for not evaluating it; I'd rather like to offer a bounty for checking the answer and providing an informative comment pointing out potential issues that are still present or maybe even confirming correctness.
So, what are your thoughts about offering a bounty for checking an answer, resp. what alternatives would you recommend?
