Q: Shutting down recurring community self-evaluations

abby hairboatWe've been talking a lot about the efficacy of community self-evaluations lately, both internally on the Community Team and out in the open on meta. Lots of ideas were tossed around, but the underlying theme of these discussions has been that site self-evaluations are not useful in their current ...

So... what was the last site to get one of these?

Asked 4 days ago, viewed 7 times (was 6 before me).

In geometry, a hypocycloid is a special plane curve generated by the trace of a fixed point on a small circle that rolls within a larger circle. It is comparable to the cycloid but instead of the circle rolling along a line, it rolls within a circle. == Properties == If the smaller circle has radius r, and the larger circle has radius R = kr, then the parametric equations for the curve can be given by either: or: If k is an integer, then the curve is closed, and has k cusps (i.e., sharp corners, where the curve is not differentiable). Specially for k=2 the curve is a straight line and the circles...

Oh, so the second one needs to grant more rep than the first one. I think I won't do it then. I already made the mistake of offering too much the first time. It did attract answers, but none were complete.
Also, what if the first bounty was already for 500? That's the maximum, so would it be possible to set a second one after the 500 one has expired?
