This question already has an answer here:
Here is a scenario that actually happened to me...
- I asked a question
- I got less than helpful answers
- I created a bounty
- With hardly any time left on the bounty, someone posted an answer
Here is the problem: I didn't have time to check the answer to see if it worked before the bounty ran out.
So I propose a '24 hr. bounty extension' button. This gives the person a chance to try answers posted at the last minute.
One more thing I thought of... probably this 'bounty extension' should prevent new answers from being considered - or the process could end up repeating itself.
