If you create a tag for a Studio Ghibli anime (see the list below) by asking a question with that tag, I will award you a 50-reputation bounty, provided that:
- The question is posted during the month of March 2015.
- The question receives a net score of at least +1 by April 7, 2015, and isn't closed or deleted. (We want good questions, not bad ones.) Note: The February contest initially required a score of +3; this has been changed to +1
- You have posted at least one answer on the site with a score of at least 0. (Bounties can only be awarded to answers, not questions.)
- You have less than 10,000 reputation at the time of this posting. (This excludes Krazer / Jon Lin / Logan / Eric / Madara / kuwaly: no sense in making the rich richer.)
If you do not have enough reputation to create a tag (150 rep), that's fine - post the question anyway with retag and mention that you need somebody with more reputation to create the tag, and somebody will surely take care of that for you. I will give you (rather than the higher-rep user who physically creates the tag) credit for creating the tag.
There is no limit on the number of bounties you can win (other than that you obviously can't win more bounties than there are tags to be made). Note: This is a change from Feb 2015
If someone creates a tag but is disqualified from receiving a bounty for any of the reasons above, the bounty may still be awarded to the next user who asked a question in that tag, unless they are disqualified for some reason, in which case I'll go on to the next user, and so forth. So, if somebody "beats you to the punch", but they already have >10k rep, go ahead and post your question! Who knows - you could well win the bounty.
These rules are subject to revision by me at any time and for any reason. (But I probably won't unless I seriously overlooked something important.)
