I answered a question (Is there a limit on pinned taskbar items?) Which the user put a bounty of 50+ reputation. After the grace period ended, I was rewarded, but only 25+. Is this normal behavior? Can I do this on any bounty, or does the bounty automatically decrease after the grace period is ended ? (I answered before the grace period.)

  • The bounty expired without being awarded. As you had a score of +2 then half the bounty was awarded to you. superuser.com/help/bounty

  • The user didn't assign the bounty manually, so half of the bounty it was automatically awarded to you as your answer was the highest-scoring new answer. See the linked question for more information.

  • @bwDraco, Where does the other half go to?

  • The other half of the bounty is forfeited.
