Bounty auto-awarded after 6 days
I recently placed a
+50 Rep Bounty on this question. On the sixth day, during active comment discussion and testing of a given solution, the bounty suddenly closed itself. The answer under discussion was awarded only +25 points, says it was closed by "Community" (not me). The answer turned out to work (though I later found a better one, after the bounty period). I wanted to award the full bounty to a working solution, but someone appears to have done it for me. A mod said he could not fix it, and to raise a question here.
- What happened? Did some special ruleset close it early for half-credit?
- Can TheCodeKing be properly awarded the full bounty, or is it too late?
