- How does the bounty system work? 1 answer
I have answered a bounty question on Stack Overflow, but I did not received any bounty and I don't know why.
From What is a bounty? How can I start one? I understand that If I have an answer with 2 upvotes (or more) on it and it is the most voted answer after the grace period ended I will receive the bounty/ half of it.
If you do not award your bounty within 7 days (plus the grace period), the highest voted answer created after the bounty started with a minimum score of 2 will be awarded half the bounty amount.
The grace period has ended and the question bounty was not given to anybody by the question asker.
My question is, my answer:
- Was the first answer posted.
- Is the most voted question.
- Has more than 2 upvotes.
This is not "I am upset that I was not given reputation question", but a general question that is relevant to all Stack Exchange sites about bounty questions.
