Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Possible Duplicates:
Winnerless bounties
What happens if Bounty expires after Seven Days and you have not selected an answer ?

I had asked a question earlier, got one answer which was not satisfactory. It has one upvote

So I started a bounty and have not got any new answers yet.

This is the question here.

SO- bounty says that

If there is no answer meeting the above criteria, and you as the question owner have not opted to accept an answer, you forfeit your right to ever accept an answer to your question.

So if I do not accept this answer(which was posted before I started the bounty), do I lose the right to accept answers for any of my past/future questions ?
