What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 122 Stack Exchange communities.

The bounty on this question expired without an answer. So as expected I got the email reminding me to award it & the grace period to do so after it expired (it can't be awarded after it expires).

..but that bug is covered elsewhere. The meta-bug is that now the grace period should be expiring, it's gone back to "This question had a bounty worth +50 reputation from DenverCoder9 that ended yesterday; you have 24 hours to award the bounty"

Is there no escape from stackoverflow's taunting over my lost bounty?

Edit: the grace period did expire, so it looks like it's just a minor bug, that the message for the grace period says 24 hours when it should say XX minutes.

What is a "metabug"? And do I understand correctly that you start your post with repeating things that, apparently, are covered elsewhere? I find this a bit confusing! –  Arjan Nov 26 '11 at 10:55
Fair enough, have hyphenated it to meta-bug to make it easier to parse. I just mean this is a further bug in another, already covered bug. –  Mike Howard Nov 26 '11 at 12:17
