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.


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 10 Years Wizard Jul 11 '19 at 9:45
