- How does the bounty system work? 1 answer
I just wonder how someone in StackOverflow can earn a large number of points in a week but just with 1 question and 5 upvotes.
I found Ugur as one of those who earned the highest number of the reputation for the week (315 during the last 4 days).
I tried to analyze his activities to see what sort of activities he was involved to earn such a large reputation in a short time. But I was astonished to see that he has asked only 1 question during his lifetime and the question has 5 upvotes.
Also, he has answered his own question to earn points worth 300? How comes someone can earn such huge points for his own answer? Who will accept the answer? Can someone enlighten me?
I also have questions open for a while on StackFlow without an answer. I have found an answer myself. Will I earn such huge points if I answer my own question?
