this question the OP opened a bounty, however the question is Community Wiki. Should bounty's still apply to these questions?
To clarify I am trying to determine if the bounty will actually be allocated for a Community Wiki questions which does not allow reputation gain.

The bounty does not care whether the question is CW or not and will be awarded if it meets the rules.
The "normal" votes on the answers are subject to regular CW rules.

Of course it should. The OP is still looking for an answer, and they've staked their own rep to find one. This is basically a cash transaction.

No, I don't think it should. You can't get upvote reputation for your answer, why should you be able to get a bounty for something that is likely to be subjective?

In the case of
this question the OP accidentally hit CW. The question resulted in some good answers not getting any rep. I think the answers still deserved the rep from the bounty given the technical nature of the question (although I am biased...)
