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.

  1. What happened? Did some special ruleset close it early for half-credit?
  2. Can TheCodeKing be properly awarded the full bounty, or is it too late?

  • The bounty award occurred on Sep 1 at 18:05. The bug was fixed a bit later, on Sep 3. Still, someone should fix this for your case. – Hendrik Vogt Sep 6 '11 at 14:48
  • Well a mod told me this was beyond his ability. Who is able to fix this? – Kyeotic Sep 6 '11 at 15:12
  • @Tim A community manager is looking into it – Michael Mrozek Sep 6 '11 at 15:24
  • Since this is a duplicate, it should probably be deleted after the bug is fixed. – Kyeotic Sep 6 '11 at 15:30
  • @MichaelMrozek, any chance we can wait to close this until after the bounty has been fixed? – Kyeotic Sep 7 '11 at 14:34
  • @Tim Well, I'm not sure it actually can be fixed. I brought it up again; apparently they're waiting on a response from a developer – Michael Mrozek Sep 7 '11 at 15:00
  • @MichaelMrozek oh... that's unfortunate. – Kyeotic Sep 7 '11 at 16:12
  • I just started a bounty there ... let me know who you want me to pick – waffles Sep 9 '11 at 1:47
