How does the bounty system work?

I had started bounty question on stackoverflow but haven't got any useful answer. No answer has up votes that can qualifies for auto bounty assignment. What happened to my 50 points then? Doesn't it re-added to my reputation points?

Thanks.

The bounty points have gone

Bounty once started, is gone & isn't refunded back to the user.

  • This is interesting. I'll keep that in mind as I also wanted to start my first bounty recently. – beta Mar 2 '12 at 13:46
  • Thanks for the poof! :-) – AppleDeveloper Mar 2 '12 at 16:03
  • Last time I try using bounty. EVER. Stupid rule. I got ZERO answers to my question. Just threw away 100 points. – Warren in Toronto Mar 7 '12 at 20:41

    But the poof thing makes bounty a bigger risk. A bounty that is awarded, fine, costs 100 points. Putting up a reward for something, and getting no phone calls even, and then the reward is gone anyways, that's how it works here. Which sucks. – Warren in Toronto Mar 8 '12 at 21:31
  • @WarreninToronto As the faq says - It will definitely get more attention, but we can't guarantee it will necessarily be acted upon.. Sucks, but you can't demand something – Sathyajith Bhat Mar 9 '12 at 5:07
