Someone awarded a bounty to me on this answer and then deleted their account. Normally, I would still keep the bounty reputation, and it would be attributed to the Community user. However, in this case, I seem to have lost the bounty reputation.

This seems to be a bug, because while my answer shows the "+200" mark, the answer's revision history and timeline do not show any evidence of a bounty having been awarded. It seems as though the bounty vote was deleted somehow. Interestingly, the question's revision history and timeline both show a bounty owned by Community and awarded to me.

  • You don't. Bounties are always transferred to the Community user. You'd only lose it if the question also got deleted. Where do you see you lost a bounty due to a profile deletion? – animuson Oct 10 '17 at 0:45

    Heh I have no idea why the bounty vote there ended up deleted. That's not consistent with usual behavior, and even odder considering the bounty vote on the question did not get deleted with it and it didn't create a reputation history event. – animuson Oct 10 '17 at 1:18

    I don't know why this is getting no-repro vote(s), since it's obvious to anyone that takes the time to look at the situation that it can be reproduced right there by looking at it: everything is still in the anomalous state. It might be a heisenbug or otherwise difficult to debug, but it's not as though it's vanished from relevance. – Nathan Tuggy Oct 10 '17 at 6:15

    It is not in revisions but timeline shows bounty ended. no more details – Optimus Prime Oct 10 '17 at 13:22
  • @iDebug can you explain the status-norepro ? – Optimus Prime Oct 10 '17 at 13:23
  • @animuson aren't all votes deleted when a low-ish rep user deletes their account? Looks like the bounty award vote was deleted, leaving a mess behind. – Shadow The Dragon Wizard Oct 10 '17 at 23:07
  • is 3.5k lowish? I mean he was in the top 10 – bleh Oct 10 '17 at 23:08
