I have started a bounty: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2758466/select-videos-using-uiimagepickercontroller-in-2g-3g

It expires in 3 days. I don't have an appropriate answer to accept, and the only answer which it has gotten has no votes.

So am I going to simply lose 100 reputation without getting a satisfactory answer?

Or should I accept the lone inappropriate answer so that I will not lose my right to accept answers to any questions which I might ask in the future, which is what the bounty rules claim?

So am I gonna loose the 100 reputation just simply without having my answer?

Yes

should I accept the lone un-appropriate answer so that I will not loose my right to accept answers to any questions which I might ask in future, which is what the rules of bounty claims?

No, It does not effect your other questions. So you can choose the most appropriate one or accept your own answer or don't just accept it. Its your choice.

I'm very sad to find out the reputation is just lost. Nobody gains from it. It's wasted. –  ashes999 Feb 13 '12 at 0:11
