For my question Kingston SSD toolbox doesn't see new SSD I posted a bounty which didn't garner any responses that were helpful. And the only answer had a score of 1, and that answer didn't solve my issue.
So after a while I decided to post a 2nd bounty. Again, I have not had any helpful answers, but that initial answer that garnered just the 1 up vote now has a vote count of 3 (and received the additional 2 votes after I had posted the 2nd bounty)
From the help center about bounties
If you do not award your bounty within 7 days (plus the grace period), the highest voted answer created after the bounty started with a minimum score of 2 will be awarded half the bounty amount. If two or more eligible answers have the same score (their scores are tied), the oldest answer is chosen. If there's no answer meeting those criteria, no bounty is awarded to anyone.
So I am confused if this original answer will be awarded my new bounty as the answer was created after the 1st bounty, but before the 2nd bounty. Personally I don't think it deserves my bounty, but I don't think that I will have any control over the result.
