I'd like to start a tiered bounty on an unanswered question I have open.
As I understand the bounty assignments, I would first have to assign a bounty with the third place 'prize'. Once that has been resolved in some manner, I can add a second place 'prize' of no less than double the original. Once the second bounty has been awarded, I can add a third bounty that is at least double the awarded points of the second bounty.
If I've read and interpreted the rules correctly, I should be able to assign bounties of 100 then 250 and finally 500 magical unicorn points to the responses to my question.
Am I on the right track here? I tried this once before on a different StackExchange site a few years ago and was stymied by the algorithms locking up the process. I'd rather not have the same situation reassert itself.
