I think I had at least one day more. I read a couple of hours ago "your bounty will expire tomorrow" and usually the hours are shown, for example "it will expire in 10 hours", etc. It was for this question.

  • I have no idea how to even tell. Maybe Aaronut or Hobodave will know.

  • @Sam: Seems we mods can't refund a bounty after it's ended, so can you or one of the devs please follow up?

I'm going to call this a bug, pending confirmation or explanation from the dev team.

If you check the history you will see the following text:

Bounty Ended with no winning answer

The timestamp on this event is 2011-08-30 17:37. The bounty was started on 2011-08-24 18:03:36. That's actually less than 6 days and bounties should expire after 7 days.

If it does turn out to be a bug then we can refund it (I'd like to make sure first).

Update: As per Sam's comment, it was a bug.


The mistake was mine, I just started another bounty on that question, let me know who you want me to pick.

  • ok, i gave points to the answers Frankie 2.5, Aaron 3, JasonTrue 2.5 So Aaron wins the bounty, but give it now .Thank you Sep 9, 2011 at 18:52
