I had asked a question 10 months ago and right now I gave bounty on that. The reason for bounty I gave was 'More detail require' But after applying the bounty it shows 'The current answers do not contain enough detail'. It contains enough details but I wanted more. Now how can I change the reason for bounty?

    $\begingroup$ eh wha... how can it contain enough details if you want more? $\endgroup$ – Willie Wong Jan 4 '13 at 15:26
  • $\begingroup$ @WillieWong: I wanted to explore more. So I asked for more details. But the previous explanation given was enough. $\endgroup$ – Inquisitive Jan 4 '13 at 15:31

In general, you can't.

See I accidentally selected the wrong bounty reason. How do I fix it?

In this specific case, seeing that you just put on the bounty now-ish, I've refunded your rep and removed the bounty. You should now re-open the bounty and in addition to selecting the "more details required" reason, also type in a more detailed optional text describing what you are looking for in the bounty.

(Now to the general audience reading this: This is a one-time thing. I can't guarantee that I or any other moderators will be willing to refund bounties for "changing reasons" in the future. So be more careful when you open a bounty. )

Wouldn't it, for most practical purposes, be a satisfactory solution simply to leave a comment on the question explaining in your own words what the bounty is for?

    $\begingroup$ There isn't any, but the latest comments might get collapsed and then you might miss them... $\endgroup$ – draks ... Jan 4 '13 at 19:53
