If you offer a bounty and it goes unclaimed (without even an answer), what happens to the bounty? Just curious...


1 Answer 1


If there are no answers, then the bounty disappears and is not refunded.

Other situations were answered on meta.stackexchange.com. How does the bounty system work?

Incidentally, the Meta FAQ is a great place to find answers to how things work in the general case.
