I just set a bounty on one of my questions, where I have the only answer so far. If nobody else answers, or if nobody else gives a deserving answer, I will award myself the bounty and get +150 rep that day. Correct?
Does that count toward Mortarboard/Epic/Legendary?
Theoretically, I could set 200-rep bounties on odd-numbered days, then come back and award myself the bounties on even-numbered days. Sure I'd lose rep on odd-numbered days, but gain huge rep on even-numbered days.
Does that even work?
