My question is virtually the title. I am asking whether you can still get the “This Is Fine” hat if the person who set up the bounty doesn't manually award it to anyone but instead the system awards half of the bounty to the answer posted during the bounty period with the highest score, does that count against the “This Is Fine” hat?
The explanation doesn't solve my question:
Answer a bountied question and receive an upvote, but not the bounty. Answer must be posted during the bounty period but not necessarily during Winter Bash. If you answer your own question, receive an upvote, and offer the bounty you win this hat when you award the bounty.
Any help is appreciated.
