I placed a bounty on someone else's question about a week ago, but I haven't earned the Altruist badge yet. Is this normal?

I tried to find the question to post it here, but I can't work out how to find someone else's question that I put a bounty on!

However, I don't think it's received any answers since I started the bounty. Would this be why I haven't got the badge yet?

    Sounds like you're not sufficiently disinterested :) – Benjol May 23 '11 at 4:36

You have to award the bounty to get the Altruist badge.

You can find your question in the Featured questions section of whatever tag you placed it under.

Edit:

Act quickly to award your altruistic bounty; it ends tomorrow and has five answers:

Looks like you got the Investor on May 17th for placing the bounty. To get the Altruist, you must manually award the bounty to a user that you select(the badge isn't earned if the system automatically gives half to the highest votegetter (with a score of +2 or more) at the end of the bounty period). "Rules and restrictions may apply".
