How does the bounty system work?

I answered this question and received two upvotes, but only got 50% of the bounty (was 100, got 50).

Unique results from joined queries with NHibernate LINQ provider

The accept checkmark's tooltip is:

The question owner accepted this as the best answer 12 hours ago. This answer was awarded a bounty of 50 reputation

That seems to imply that the OP did mark my answer as accepted.

  • Note that this question was asked before the awarding of bounties was separated from the process of accepting answers.

If the bounty period ended, those two up-votes would ensure that you get half the rep automatically. If the OP accepted your answer, you should have gotten the full amount of rep.


It appears that there is only one value for the 'Owner accepted answer' string. It doesn't allow for the nuance with auto accepted bounty answers.
