This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

I don't really want to mark this as a duplicate of this one, only because there are at least 3 reports from even earlier about this. So give me a moment~ ♪ –  Grace Note Sep 17 '10 at 16:08
I'll settle for this one. It's about not getting the bounty at all, but the reason is exactly the same, and is what Popular points out below. –  Grace Note Sep 17 '10 at 16:14

The bounty rules have changed; awarding bounties is now a separate action from accepting answers.

The details are available in the blog post.
