Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 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

I posted my first bounty and it's expiring soon. Yes, the Bounty FAQ states "If you do not award your bounty within 7 days, the highest voted answer ... will be awarded half the bounty amount." However, is that within the 7 days from the time the bounty started or within 7 days from when the bounty ends. I'm guessing the former, but I want to be sure. That is, do I still have some time after the bounty closes to decide on who to award or do I have to do so before the bounty ends?

It's the former. You have seven days to award your bounty from the point when you start it.
