I just found out that one of the questions I offered bounty for, turned out to be deleted. I am wondering whether it is viable/possible to refund bounty on such questions?

Here is a link. The question turned out to be very low quality and a complete misunderstanding.


I'm trying to see whether it's possible. It looks like questions with OPEN bounties can have the bounties refunded, but I can't see that option on that question... which was closed in October 2014 (so it doesn't have an open bounty).

This question suggests that you should receive the bounty back automatically, though.

I can see the bounty refund on your profile, but it says the value was zero?

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you Peter. I can't find it in history of my points from that period. It should be 50. Unless it is a bug of some sort, I don't really care about those points. $\endgroup$ – jojek Mar 21 '16 at 13:58
  • $\begingroup$ You're welcome! You will probably be able to have a poke around yourself in a day or two. You have my vote, at least. :-) $\endgroup$ – Peter K. Mar 21 '16 at 15:42
