I set a bounty for this question.

However, the question and all answers are marked as "community wiki". (I suppose this marking happened in an automatic way, once the number of answers reached 30)

Will the bounty, once awarded, go to the original poster of chosen answer, or will it just disappear by going to some sort of "community" account?

How does Community Wiki mode affect bounties?

Bounties are not affected by community wiki mode. When you award a bounty to an answer marked community wiki, the reputation bonus will be awarded to the user who posted the original revision of the answer.

How does the bounty system work?

    $\begingroup$ Maybe it's worth adding this paragraph to the help center's page about bounties. $\endgroup$
