This might be an easy question but I simply dont know the answer.
The bounty is described in this link: https://math.stackexchange.com/help/bounty
Probably to many not surprisingly, it says "You do not need to be the asker of the question to offer a bounty on it.".
But from my understanding, it does not say who will actually distribute the bounty in such case?
The description says "Simply click the bounty award icon to award your bounty to the answerer". Who is you (probably the one who paid it I guess and not who owns the question)?
Then it says "If the bounty was started by the question owner (afk) we assume the bounty owner liked the answer they accepted and award it."
So what if it was not started by the question owner? Does it mean if the question owner accepts the answer, it may not get the bounty by the bounty offerer?
