If you have reputation to spare, and notice good questions, throw a bounty. It saves the good questions from being lost in the flood. Currently there is only one bounty, which is unusually low activity.

You probably will also eventually earn back your bounty.

    $\begingroup$ @Manishearth there is not much danger of that happening any time soon, is there? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Magpie I know... Just noting a fact. We're not in any danger of coming close to the "too many" threshold either :P $\endgroup$ Jul 18, 2013 at 7:27
