I sometime stumble upon relatively new users that post really good answers (and I would like to encourage them) or simply really good answers that truly show effort in research and are in my opinion worthy of a bit more reputation. However I don't know if I should award the bounty as soon as it's possible or if I should wait a few days. My main concerns are :
- If someone post another (possibly best) answer on this question, will I be able to bounty both ? And is that acceptable ? If I can't what then ?
- Should I let the time to the author of the answer to edit and finalize his post before awarding the reputation. If I award the bounty to soon, I'm affraid that the author will leave the answer in its current state even though it could still have been improved.
Any thoughts ? Thanks
