Lost reputation after answering my own question with bounty
I asked a question, 7 days ago - no answers - so I assume no one knew how. So I added a bounty to encourage answers -still none. I then, after days of research I found how to do it and answered my own question.
But here is the killer - the 50 reputation I put up for bounty I've now lost lost, despite no one else answering, and despite me actually having the answer. It seems wrong that I would be "punished" by solving my own problem when no one else could!
