I asked the following question: Which of the versions is the latest?, and raised a bounty for it. However, the bounty was awarded automatically, and the answer which got my bounty has misleading information.

It says Game 2 is CS 1.6 and NOT Condition Zero. But those screenshots are actually taken from Condition Zero game only. All of three games are Condition Zero. I had clearly mentioned it.

Can I get my bounty back? It's embarrassing.

Bounties cannot be refunded. It looks like the answer was given it because it met the criteria for automatic rewarding:

  • They were posted after the bounty was started, and
  • They have a score of at least 2 (at the time the automatic awarding takes place), and
  • They were not written by the bounty starter.

So half the amount was given to the person who got it automatically, if I am reading things right.

When you place a bounty, it does warn you that you won't get the rep back, I believe.

  • But it's embarrassing and pathetic.

    @Vikas I'm sorry you feel that way, but there's nothing we can do. However, something to be aware of is that the bounty is actually attributed to community and not to you. This, along with your comments, should indicate you were not the one that awarded the bounty.
