This question already has an answer here:

I got the notification that "Bounty expires in 3 days".

Now normally, I assume its purpose is to remind me to consider accepting an answer.

However, in this case there are no answers posted yet.
What is it reminding me to do then?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


It is reminding you that you may need to apply some attention to your question in order for it to attract potential answerers.

In 3 days your bounty expires so as soon as possible I think you should edit it to try to make what you are asking clearer and more answerable.

For example, if your question asks more than one question (i.e. it is too broad), then decide which is more important to you, and remove the other. There may be a potential answerer of one question who does not answer because they do not have an answer to both.

  • Fair enough. Unfortunately, I think I have done all I can do make that happen already. (Plenty of upvotes, and comments indication people understand what I am asking). – Lyndon White Feb 6 '18 at 6:01
  • Without a link to it I cannot offer advice on what you may be able to do to make it clearer and more answerable. If people know what you are asking and are not answering you may need to reduce what you are asking for - perhaps it has more than one aspect within it. – PolyGeo Feb 6 '18 at 7:34
  • You are asking two questions there. The first edit that I would make would be to decide which was more important to me, and to ask just that. – PolyGeo Feb 6 '18 at 7:40
  • Thanks, on another look neither of the dot pointed questions were actually the questions I mean to ask (that was the one in the title.). The one was actually speculation about a possible answer, and the other was suggestions for what a good answer would feature. I have rewritten, thanks again. – Lyndon White Feb 6 '18 at 8:20
  • Your site may be different, but I always like to see the single question indicated by a question mark - perhaps Has there been a change in the relative frequency of "limited third-person point of view", vs "omniscient third person point of view"? – PolyGeo Feb 6 '18 at 8:29
