I noticed there are no bounties in biostars, as there used to be in the original SE site. Any chance to have them back?
Oh yeah I remember the bounties, they were fun.
What is a bounty? (I mean you are probably not talking about the chocolat bar)
http://meta.stackoverflow.com/a/16067 In Stack Exchange, a bounty is a special reputation award given to answers. This feature was designed to motivate "answerers", and help questions get the answers they deserve. Bounty awards are funded by the personal reputation of the users who offer them. The award can be anywhere from 50 to 500 reputation, in 50 point increments.
we'll try to add that to the features - the best is to create an issue in the tracker that way it is visible when new additions are made
what about giving a donation to support site, a charity, or the person who provided the answer ?
Like a 'physical bounty'?
yes, to enourage users to participate.
