I had a bounty of 100pts offered on https://stackoverflow.com/questions/236865/what-are-some-best-practices-for-large-scale-development-in-python, with a detailed description of why and what would be expected.
The bounty however somehow got deleted (before expiration), with no notice, I was refunded the 100pts, and the bounty description now disappeared into nowhere.
I have contacted SO support with the following answer:
Stack Exchange Team (Stack Exchange, Inc.) Oct 16 11:36 (EDT) It looks like the bounty was refunded by a moderator. I'm not sure why off-hand. The best place to ask would be on Meta Stack Overflow. Doing so will allow the moderator who took the action to comment and explain what happened or why. Please let us know if you need anything further.
It would be nice to at least know what happened. I really want to help improve the answer, and hence the bounty.
