I don't have much experience with setting bounties. Here is my question where I set a bounty: Which wind instruments are a problem with braces?
What I was looking for was an answer from a person like a band teacher, who knows how to play many different wind instruments, and knows what happens to middle school musicians who get braces. Well, it took a while, but I was able to get a conference set up with my son's actual band teacher, and the conversation was very helpful. So in a way, the bounty should go to him. Am I allowed to check my own answer as "accepted," and award the bounty to my own question?
Which is not to say that I didn't appreciate everyone's contributions.
