I attempted to assign the bounty for this question: how-do-you-build-a-load-out-for-modern-warfare and it said it was assigned.

Today, however, I got a message saying, that it was "automatically" assigned and the person I assigned it to received only half the amount. If I remember correctly, when a bounty expires without being assigned it is automatically assigned to the highest voted answer for half the amount. This seems to be what happened.

  • You are correct, an auto-award did occur (it was assigned by "Community"). When did you attempt the manual assignment?

  • @Grace Saturday. I think it may be the result of the awarding just not going through.

  • @Juan my SO username is Tzenes, but that does seem to be a similar case.

  • I didn't mean it was your post, I meant if it could be the same problem.

From what we can determine, your bounty award request didn't go through.

I'll update the bounty vote to award the full amount to jblaske.
