Something seems broken with the bounty system. I offered a bounty, accepted an answer prior to the deadline and then found that only half the bounty had been granted as the question had been "auto-accepted". This can't be right...

Here's the question:

How to hint use of UIView subclass for compiler

Is there any way to give the answerer all he deserves?

You can't just accept the answer - you need to click the bounty icon in order to award the full bounty amount otherwise half the bounty gets awarded (subject to some conditions.)

From the FAQ.....

Click the bounty award icon next to each answer to permanently award your bounty to the answerer.


If you do not award your bounty within 7 days, the highest voted answer created after the bounty started with at least 2 upvotes will be awarded half the bounty amount.

Check out the full set of rules about bounties in the FAQ and this blog post.
