I have answered this featured question which has a bounty of +50. I had first answered it through a comment. My comment helped in solving the question. I was asked to re write it as an answer so that i can get the bounty. I did that but my answer has only one up-vote while there is another answer that has three up-votes. The grace period ends in 40 mins. So if that user who had asked the question doesnt come online then the bounty is awarded to the person whose answer has 3 up-votes right? or is there a chance i still get the bounty?

up vote 10 down vote accepted

If things stayed as they were, you would not get the bounty. The single highest scored post (as long as it's >+2) gets half the bounty if the bounty expires.

I've cleaned up the post, have left a message and asked the chat room to vote for it. Normally speaking all of the above is frowned upon but I think we have a special set of circumstances.

thanks a lot :) – Mukund Jan 7 '13 at 12:27
