I had asked a question on Mathematics Stack Exchange which I placed a bounty on and received no answers except my own answer. See link: $L(G)' \cap B \rtimes G = G^B$ if G ICC. If G is not ICC then $L(G)' \cap B \rtimes G = B^G \overline{\otimes} L(FC_G)$

As you can see I received the most upvotes, so will I be awarded my own bounty?


1 Answer 1


See from here How does the bounty system work?.

Can I award a bounty to my own answer?

No. This used to be possible, but it has been disabled. The user would not get the reputation back, and the bounty will be displayed as +0, “this answer has been awarded bounty worth 0 reputation”.

    $\begingroup$ No robbery. The bounty is just a fee you paid to get the question more air time. Not at all unlike paying your local newspaper to advertise your product/service. May be some voters would not have checked out the question and not voted at all without the bounty? Just be a good sport and award the bounty to someone else. At least they will remember :-) $\endgroup$ May 4, 2017 at 18:27
