I have noticed a few comments by other users, so thought I would ask about the recent transfer of 3000 rep from d'alar'cop to rand al'thor. According to this discussion on meta.se, using bounties to transfer rep is not allowed.
Certainly these 6 bounties could be considered to reward an existing answer. A choice on the bounty reasons is "one or more of the answers is exemplary and worthy of an additional bounty".
However, d'alar'cop has offered only these 6 bounties on puzzling.se, all within the last few days. They have all been awarded to rand al'thor for answers that were previously accepted by other users in November and December. After three months, it seems odd to claim that these specific answers are suddenly exemplary.
This comment by d'alar'cop describes an intent that is concerning:
"I will give all my rep to avigrail and rand al'thor over a set of bounties and then the riddlers will forever reign supreme!!!"
As requested, here are links to the six answers:
- Name that sandwich
- Name that entity (5)
- Solve the equation
- What, the answer isn't the No of the Yes is?
- What am I? 'Tis the season of mutual puzzling
- Left coin, right coin, last coin?
