Great idea! I have a related problem. Should the solutions posted by the ideators be made public during the ideation phase? If they are public, other ideators may go through the previous explainers and could be able to build upon that and come up with a brilliant idea, making their idea more superior. In this case, they might receive a better chunk of the bounty but the person who laid the foundation for it, may not. If the solutions are not made public during the ideation phase, a brilliant solution that could have been posted, will not be. Do you choose ethics over advancement? Is there an optimum solution?

Shubhankar Kulkarni I thought about the same. This is an interesting dilemma where money changes the dynamics from collaborative to competitive. Indeed, the solution would be to temporarily hide the contributions during the gathering stage. There are other, more complicated solutions like the ability to dispute ("I said it first and I have my post's timestamp to prove it") the winner, etc. This could make the dynamics even worse though.

Shubhankar Kulkarni, Darko Savic Does the case where everyone who contributed something meaningful (again, decided by the arbiter or defined by deliverables) share the bounty make sense? This feels like promoting collaboration rather than competition, but at the same time might demotivate to participate or to try hard to solve the problem.

Povilas S It will be demotivating, I think. Creativity is priceless. Only the person whose problem gets solved may be able to put a value on it. Sharing the bounty with everyone is a good idea to promote collaboration. So, what can be done is share the bounty but not equally. The best solution gets the highest reward followed by other major contributors and the remaining participants get a nominal reward, just enough to motivate them to think and post an explainer on another challenge/ session.

Great idea. I'm wondering about the technical part of bounty release though. Some people might try to abuse the system and get the advice without paying. They might pretend none of the suggestions was well enough (if it's up to them to decide) so that the bounty would get back to them from escrow or similar system. If the bounty is non-refundable then it's also not fair, because it might happen that the topic would not attract enough attention and just some "bounty hunters" who would try to take it by making use of the situation and posting something rather insignificant (because of the lack of activity then they would get the bounty). This might be the case especially in the early days of the website. So some well-considered rules on this might be necessary.
