I like the list of "bounties with no deadline (which is based on Puzzling and Code Golf equivalents) on Literature, so I am stealing it with attribution; this is almost completely copied and pasted from the other site.

This is a list of unofficial, deadline-less (hence not searchable) bounties offered by users on various challenges on the main site.

The list need not be limited to questions that already have an answer. You can offer bounties both for your own questions and for other people's questions.

Disclaimer: There is no guarantee that the user will award the bounty for you in case you fulfil its requirement. Especially if the user isn't an active member anymore. The only guarantee is their written word.

Guidelines for updating

  • To add a bounty, create an answer that contains a link to the question that needs a (better) answer and the bounty you are willing to award.
    • Answers can be sorted to see which bounties are newest.
    • Please comment on answers if you notice that there’s been a good answer to the question in question for a while that the bountier apparently hasn’t seen.
  • If a bounty is awarded, delete the meta answer.

    If I have multiple questions I'm willing to offer a bounty for, should I create multiple answers? – Thunderforge May 30 '19 at 19:28

    @Thunderforge - That would seem sensible. – Valorum May 30 '19 at 19:52

  • How do you offer a 1000 point bounty? The bounty dropdown only goes up to 500 for me. Are you offering two separate 500 point bounties? – Thunderforge Jun 19 '19 at 18:22
  • @Thunderforge - The latter – Valorum Jun 19 '19 at 19:48

    @TheAsh - Cheers for the answer. The bounty stands if you can find additional info about Haile – Valorum Jun 27 '19 at 21:23
  • @Valorum Believe me I would love too. I'm considering buying a copy of the westerns. Meanwhile, contact the board member with the sports book, maybe theres biographical info in that one (likely its the same one) – TheAsh Jun 28 '19 at 4:46

    Well, you won't really have a choice - since you've already spent 50 on a bounty a while back, bountying the same question again will cost you 100 minimum (see here) – Jenayah Jun 19 '19 at 21:01
  • @Jenayah well then 100 it is! – Niffler Jun 19 '19 at 21:23

    You can make these all separate so you get more attention for each one, others are doing that. – Stormblessed Jul 18 '19 at 3:29
