I recently offered my first bounty on this question:
One user answered, and while I thought his answer was helpful, it mostly confirmed what I already believed, so I wanted to wait and see if anyone else would offer a different perspective.
No additional answers, though, and I received a message to the effect that the bounty would be auto-awarded.
So I didn't worry about manually awarding it, because I thought it was taken care of.
However, it didn't get awarded. After doing some research, I believe that the answer did not qualify for auto-award due to not having 2 upvotes, but this requirement is not reflected in the message.
Is it possible for a moderator to unexpire this bounty so that I can award it to the answer?
Should we change the message to reflect that the bounty may be auto-awarded if the answer meets certain criteria?
