My answer to a +50 bounty question has been accepted. How do I get the bounty? My understanding is that the OP has to specifically allocate the bounty. What if he decided not to or forgets to?

  • If he were to decide not to, or forgot to, that's up to him/her. Nobody is under any obligation to actually award bounty. – John Gardeniers Jan 19 '11 at 3:16

Patience - looks to me like you have it now.

  • Yes, thanks :) I was concerned that it was possible for the OP to forget to allocate them. – SabreWolfy Jan 18 '11 at 11:43
  • While you were awarded bounty in this instance please remember that the OP can accept the answer and still award bounty to someone else. The two are quite separate. – John Gardeniers Jan 19 '11 at 3:14
  • Seems like an odd system, "I like your answer, but this other guy gets the bounty." – ErnieTheGeek Jan 21 '11 at 17:58
