As I've stated in a previous post, I've asked a number of unanswered (or in one case, sparsely answered) questions. For example:
- How can we calculate the benefit gained from taping glider wing roots?
- What are the implications of building a private airfield in the United States?
- Where can I find more information about my grandfather's crashed B-18a bomber on Mt. Redoubt Alaska?
- Why is it not practical for the USN T-45 to be fitted with oxygen systems used in other trainers?
Since I'm new to the site and not really an expert in anything related to aviation, I'm still a bit low in the reputation area, so sparing some to post a bounty would be punitive. However, I see members with well more than 25k of bounty and I don't think the extra buys you anything accept perhaps a place on a ranking sheet.
So, my question is, is it acceptable, either here in meta, in chat or as a comment to the original question to ask that someone post a bounty on my behalf. Since getting some of these questions answered (especially the two with nine votes) would only benefit the database of information we are building here, I would think yes. However, I can also see a case for the argument on the other side.
Note: Less anyone think so, this post is not a clever ploy to get someone to do the very thing I'm asking about :-) Instead, this is an attempt to ask first and get buy off instead of acting without asking and getting slapped down in the process.
