What happens if my bounty time expires?

I have kept a bounty of 50 to this question, and it has gone unanswered, but the web-site is asking me to offer the bounty as soon as possible.

So is there anyway I could get back my points, and is there any way that I could re-open the bounty with 500 this time to receive special attention.

Thank you.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


You can't get back your points from a bounty you've already placed - see this question.

However, after your 50-point bounty expires you are welcome to place a new, 500-point bounty.
