How does the bounty system work?
If I have put a bounty on my question and then decide none of the answers are good enough, can I just delete the question? Will I get my reps back for the bounty?
Questions with a bounty cannot be closed, or deleted. In exceptional circumstances moderators can refund the bounty, and the question can be then closed, or deleted according to the normal rules.
It should be pointed out that a question with answers cannot be deleted by the original poster. The community can once it is closed and over a certain age and the moderators can at any point.
