I answered a question today, and a few minutes later, so did a new user (got to review their first post). Since my answer was first, I got the 15 point bonus.
I decided I'd like to pass some of those points to the other answerer (the answers were the same, and his was slightly more detailed). I thought I could manually award a bounty - of course, once I looked, I discovered that wasn't an option. The question is too new, and I was looking to give 5 or 10 of my points, not 50.
Is there any mechanism to allow such a thing?
If not, should there be? There are ways that this could be abused, I suppose.
While I'm 99% sure the answers are "no" and "no", it seemed like it might be worth discussion; I couldn't find an existing question like this (on our meta site, at least).
