I asked the following question -- and then attached a bounty when I didn't get any answers:

Why is JetBlue's IATA code B6?

There is currently one answer that is well-researched but is still just a hypothesis and thus I don't think that it's properly the "correct" one.

Still, the answerer did do a good deal of research and I want to recognize that.

Is there a way to give the bounty points to this person without making it the "accepted" answer?

You should upvote all answers that you think are useful (which is one way to reward them), but only accept the best one, which you should also feel is correct and fully answers the question.

The bounty system is independent of the "Accept" system -- You can award the bounty to any answer you like.

If you do not award the bounty manually than in the absence of an accepted answer half of the bounty amount will automatically be awarded to the highest-voted answer if it meets certain conditions.
