This happened to me once. I had a question and started a bounty over its topic but the "new" answer which came for the bounty was "to my standards" not worthy of that particular bounty. Stackexchange does forces me to award the bounty before the time limit. So does this means I should award the bounty even if I don't feel my answer was fully resolved in the end? or to award it to anyone who just happens to write whatever they please if nobody else has shown up?. Or could it be that I understood its policy wrong?.
Can somebody help me to clear these doubts?
