This question already has an answer here:

I have a problem one of the users who asked awhile ago about something related to SQL injection. I provided an answer for his problem, and some solutions, but he did not accept my answer nor did he accept any other users' answers. Yesterday, someone opened a bounty on that question, to give my answer there some respect (it's really a good answer).

I want to know if I can be awarded that 500 pt. bounty even though the asker has not accepted my answer. The relevant question and answer can be found here.

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.


Of course, otherwise what's the reason of bounties? There are many questions with users, with their answer not accepted, get a bounty, for example (they're only for Python as I searched for Python):

What are metaclasses in Python?

Relative imports in Python 3

How do I lowercase a string in Python?

Of course, anyone can get the bounty.

    It's really not that trivial. By default, bounty is awarded to the accepted answer. – Shadow The Princess Wizard Jul 11 at 9:45
