This is a TeX related question but first some background.

I love this forum for some of it quirkiness amongst its more serious intent of supporting and educating Tex users.

(There are those who help tirelessly and other philanthropists who shall appear nameless especially since they morph their identity :-)

So some of you may have noticed I'm disTeXic (I could not write my mothers tongue name in a line of code if I tried, even my handle should be CSO or something like that) However I seem to have benefited from some may say undeservedly generous Bounties.

So finally to my virtuous cycle Question

I would like to "pay-back" bounties to other fresh questions (must be asked 2019), but don't know their TeX Merits, so I am asking for nominations.

You can edit/add to your answers over time since I will spread the luv approx. once a week.

What question this year deserves an additional bounty ?

My Rules
Must be a question first asked this year (system dictates must be at least 2 days old.)
Must contain a pure anyTeX related query (not simply a how do I draw or show me how to)
Ideally have had low responses
Editors decision as to none of the above is final.

Without nominations so far the first allocated winner was https://tex.stackexchange.com/a/471560/170109

And the first award issued was to Circumscribe for effort even though the OP found their own solution. https://tex.stackexchange.com/a/471804/170109

P.S I do love graphics, thus so as not to exclude ducks and marmots I may randomly accept a pstricks or tikz question too (especially if unanswered).

    Unless I'm mistaken, it's not the questions that deserve bounties, it's the answers. – AndréC Jan 23 at 19:04

    @AndréC The bounty may attract better (more varied) answers no ? – KJO Jan 23 at 19:23

    @AndréC what you do is offer a bounty for a question you deem to have too little attention or wish had better answers. So a bounty is set for a question and can be paid out to one of the answers provided for the question. – Skillmon Jan 23 at 19:26

    @Skillmon: Actually, one of the reasons you can provide is "Reward existing answer — One or more of the answers is exemplary and worthy of an additional bounty." So I guess it can be both. – Circumscribe Jan 24 at 0:02
  • My question is four months old so might not hit your first rule, but I think it's a reasonable query that's been unanswered: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/450715/… – Dan Jan 30 at 8:46

    @Dan I see you have at least one answer, I will leave bounty run the week in case you get other answers then make my choice, however don't forget to accept the one you think best addresses your issue. – KJO Jan 30 at 22:14
  • How about tex.stackexchange.com/questions/472976/… ? – user49915 Feb 3 at 23:25
  • @user49915 Unfortunately your request is currently ineligible and I note in addition to a reasonable number of "views" you have some sound expert advice in the comments, plus in addition to at least one answer within the 48 hours . I will bear you in mind, but am looking to find lesser viewed candidates. – KJO Feb 4 at 0:09
  • I see. I have some other, unanswers questions with less views, but they are all from 2018. – user49915 Feb 4 at 0:20
  • @user49915 I see the problem and respect the try, however after the 48 hour rule you could attach your own 50 point bounty. – KJO Feb 4 at 0:23
  • @KJO No problem. Your 48h rule says "at least 2 days", which, as far the representation in my browser is concerned, is true for tex.stackexchange.com/questions/472976/… at least as of now. (It might or might not have been true at the time point of your comment, which is 42 min ago.) Of course, my questions 2018 are not formally eligible according to another rule of yours. – user49915 Feb 4 at 0:51
  • @user49915 I t is still not showing as eligible however you may note I donated you some points towards your own attempt. – KJO Feb 4 at 1:05
  • @KJO Thx! Started bounty on some worthy questions from 2018. – user49915 Feb 4 at 2:30
