I asked a question, place a bounty, provided the clarifications, and got two magnificent answers. Alas, I feel like I don't have the expertise needed to choose the bounty winner. What do I do now ? How can I "summon the gods" (no pun intended) for guidance? I am willing to put the rest of my points as the bounty if that would help. What else can I do?

  • $\begingroup$ I think you can offer multiple bounties. Award one, then offer another and award that to the other answer. I don't think you can split the bounty between two answers though. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I would suggest waiting until the last minute, then award it to the highest-voted answer $\endgroup$ Feb 10 '14 at 14:07

    $\begingroup$ @mikeazo This has the problem that any following bounty has to be higher than the previous ones, so no equi-bounty for both. $\endgroup$ Feb 11 '14 at 21:31

Unfortunately, there's no way to split a bounty. One solution is to accept one answer and award a bounty to the other. Another solution is to award a second bounty, but be aware that the second bounty costs more.

Other than that, all I can suggest is to enjoy your good fortune. ;-)
