This question is intertwined with an earlier one I posted
I answered a -3 question on January 1 and on the same day I placed a bounty on it. The bounty, which I cannot award to myself, is 100 points because users who have posted an answer cannot offer a bounty for less than that amount. My answer has earned +9, a new answer has earned +4 but it was posted 3 January, I cannot tell if he has won the Maverick hat because I think he has opted out of Winter bash (stunned silence).
The question is now +3 and ....
I still haven't got the hat. (This is the second time it has earned +3 but after five hours it earned a negative vote and it was back to -2.)
Obviously I'm missing something here, but I can't think what it is. BTW I did not edit the original question, the upvotes and downvotes it has received belong to the OP they have nothing to do with me. Personally, I quite like the question but it has attracted a total of 7 downvotes and 10 upvotes so far.
- Why haven't I got the Maverick Hat?
Can someone explain what I must have done wrong? Did I break the rules? Or is this a bug in the system?
