I posted an answer on a question with a bounty, but when I go to my profile and click on bounties, I see:

0 Active bounties
You have not participated in any bounties.

Shouldn't I be participating on the one I answered the question?

Which one? Can you provide a link? –  Robert Harvey Feb 9 '12 at 16:02

You participated in a question that had a bounty, you haven't yet participated in a bounty itself which is one of the following:

  • Offering a bounty
  • Winning a bounty (which may happen yet, for that answer you left)

so that section only shows the ones I offered or the ones I won? I thought that "active" meant the ones I was participating. –  Diego Feb 9 '12 at 16:09
@Diego nope, "active" means bounty or bounties you offered and is/are still active. (Bounty is active for 7 days at most) –  Shadow Wizard Feb 9 '12 at 16:12
