Is there any way to hide other answers until you submit your own answer? I ask because a question I've put up for bounty seems to be stuck in a rut. All the answers are pretty much derivatives of the first answer.
I'd really like the option to hide answers when I put a bounty on a question. I realize that this would create a lot of duplicate answers and no up / down votes, but it would at least generate a lot of answers. Since UX is a pretty creative area, I think this may work. (Wouldn't work too well for sites like StackOverflow since there's really one right answer every time.)
Vim Golf does this, and they end up with a ton of variation for each problem. (Which is cool.)
For me, it would be great if answers could optionally be hidden for the first 7 days, and then shown for voting after that.
Is something like this possible? Is it even a good idea? Thanks!
