This is for many reasons: It confuses people. Users will think that the subject is on topic and use the existence of that question to justify that opinion. When a ...

You should make (if you can) a community wiki post: In it, have this: Answered by XYZ *link to profile) in comments (link to comment): Comment content goes here, to explain the answer. My pronouns are He / Him

It didn't simply disappear. It wasn't awarded to anyone, that's all. Look at the revision history: You need answers with score >= 2 for automatic awards.

The reason there is so much orange on the front page is that's where the incoming questions come in. Of course there's no answers when a question has been on the front page for just a few minutes.

Have a look here first. Disclaimer: I am not a moderator; I do not set policies, so this is just a personal opinion. (And a very obvious one) ;-) As a new user it's always difficult: The first 50 points of reputation are hardest to get. But there are tons of things you can do to get more rep: Ask good questions Edit spelling/grammar/formatting/tags (all ...

You can comment that the OP can still award the bounty to any answer he likes. Self-answer does not mean that the bounty is awarded to the OP or to noone. OP can still convert it to an answer, or you can do it for him. It does not really matter. But keeping the answer in the question body is not good either way.
