I wanted to add a bounty of 50 points to How to construct three mutually orthogonal circles in stereographic projection?

Some details:

  • The question is not my own
  • I did answer this question but later realised my answer is incomplete.

But somehow I was only able to add a bounty of 100 points or more.

Why is this, or did I make a mistake somewhere in the making of this bounty?

Also if I somehow manage to make the construction before the bounty expires can I or the questioner award the bounty back to me?

PS no need to change the bounty to 50 points only, I just wanted to give some attention to this undocumented behavior

(Re: i just wanted to give some attention to this undocumented behavior)

From https://math.stackexchange.com/help/bounty:

To avoid overly promotional bounties, if you are offering a bounty on a question that you have already posted an answer to, your minimum spend is 100 reputation (not 50).

P.S.

(Re: Also if I somehow manage to make the construction before the bounty expires can I or the questioner award the bounty back to me?)

No. From the same page:

All bounties are (...) non-refundable under any circumstances.
