I checked this question and today I noticed that the best answer I gave received a +50. Why did he get that? I didn't see any bounties being offered there. I've never offered any bounties. If there were bounties offered, how would I know who offered it?


HamZa did, see the post revisions:

Reward existing answer means they wanted to give an extra reward to the answer. I guess that answer helped them a lot too!

  • Indeed it did! Uhm what does the "notice" do? – puretppc Jun 20 '14 at 15:51
  • @puretppc: that's just the grey bar that announces the bounty being added and removed. – Martijn Pieters Jun 20 '14 at 15:52

You can look at the revision history on the question and you'll see that the bounty was offered by HamZa to reward an existing answer.
