This question, I did not receive an email telling that my bounty is about to expire in 24h, I use gmail, nothing in spam.

I have CS finals at university so I don't have time to keep checking this site, I don't have time to try solutions, the guy was lucky that I remembered to check that post, I rewarded him the bounty with 5 minutes left, without trying anything. He was lucky because I was on my PC, I couldn't have rewarded him anything on mobile app.

Also this question, I wasn't alerted.

Bounties have an extra grace period past the original 7 days.

You get email notifications when the 7 days end and you enter the grace period.

  • past the original 7 days? I thought it was the last day of the 7 days, btw I just received the email even though I rewarded the bounty
