For several years, Christianity Stack Exchange has done a bounty challenge during the season of Advent (for instance, in 2016) to encourage and reward high-quality answers. Given that October 31st, 2017 is recognized as the 500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, a significant event in Christian history, I'd like to propose that we do a similar bounty challenge for the month of October.

How it works

If you want to award bounties, add a post to this question to let everybody know. You can choose to award them for whatever criteria you want. Some things that users have done during previous bounty challenges include:

  • Reward answers that have not gotten enough attention
  • Announce that they will reward answers on certain topics
  • Give bounties however you feel like

Given the occasion for the bounty challenge, it is strongly recommended that bounties be awarded for answers related to the Protestant Reformation or Protestantism itself.

You can award one bounty over the whole challenge, one a week, or any other frequency you choose.

If you do choose to award a bounty, please update your answer on this post to let others know about your participation.

Now go out and write good questions and answers worth of bounties!

I don't have a lot of bounty to give, but I'll happily award bounties as part of this challenge!

Given Martin Luther's importance as the founder of the Reformation (and of modern Lutheranism), I plan to reward excellent answers on questions related to Martin Luther himself, to a maximum of one per week as often as I feel like it.

I may also decide to give out bounties about other topics related to the Reformation that I think are exemplary and/or need more attention.
