First off I know that StackExchange does not allow one to use reputation points of one site to be used for a bounty on another site. That is the goal I am hoping for but want some feeback before possibly making the request.
The request was also put forward and declined.
How the idea and desire came about is that I am trying to learn enough category theory to make practical use of it instead of just reading about it to gain some insight, so naturally I need to work with it on some practical problems. And thus will be asking basic questions, but want to pull in more people for possibly better answers by offering a bounty when necessary.
yet I only have enough rep in StackOveflow and Computer Science that I would consider using. I am sure there are others in the same position.
I would actually like to post the bounties on the CSTheory site but I have no significant history there as I do here and I know most of the people who respond here also are on CSTheory.
While I would like the sharing of rep points between sites to be unconstrained, I would settle for a constraint of similar tags. i.e. if more than one site has a similar tag, then one can ask the question on another site with a similar tag and use rep points from a different site for the bounty in the other site.
So the question (discussion) is, should the rep points for a bounty be allowed to be taken from user's rep points of a different Stack Exchange site?
