  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I just got a notification of "You bounty on question THIS has completed - answer auto-selected"

Only problem is, it wasn't my bounty.

Maybe this request has been silently implemented? :-) – Shadow Wizard Oct 23 '12 at 15:08
By the way did you get any notification before that? E.g. when the bounty was placed or about to expire? – Shadow Wizard Oct 23 '12 at 15:11
@ShaWizDowArd Not to my knowledge, no. Checking through my inbox, it doesn't appear to be in there either. – Raven Dreamer Oct 23 '12 at 16:53
Weird either way.. I assume a bug/glitch following some recent change. Candidate – Shadow Wizard Oct 23 '12 at 18:09

It looks like non-owner bounties were never accounted for in the "who to message" code. The next deploy will send the message to the bounty owner as should be the case.
