I asked a question on January 24th and got an answer on January 31st. The answer was accompanied by the following message.

Have you considered accepting an answer or starting a bounty for this question?

True, but that message shouldn't appear when the first and only answer was posted only 22 minutes ago. –  animuson Jan 31 '12 at 19:08

why i am getting this message just after getting an answer. i think it should appear after 12hours or 24hours. –  Parag Bafna Jan 31 '12 at 19:12

@Parag: The idea is your question has been open for 7 days and it's asking you to start a bounty, even though you just got an answer less than half an hour ago. The logic for the message appears flawed. –  animuson Jan 31 '12 at 19:14
