Regarding this question: How to build a 2N6027 PUT? which was to rewarded with a +500 bounty.

From Kortuk's profile page I understand the bounty was rewarded to me: https://electronics.stackexchange.com/users/230/kortuk?tab=bounties

But I am under the impression that I never actually received that bounty. What is the reasoning behind not rewarding the bounty? Did I miss anything or am I misreading the information? Please help me understand the mechanics behind bounties being rewarded or not.

That page shows a name that looks like the person whom garnered the bounty but it is actually whom last answered/edited the question.

You were the last to post an answer, it shows you there.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Ah I see. Thnx for the effort Kortuk. \$\endgroup\$ – jippie Jun 8 '12 at 17:41
  • \$\begingroup\$ @jippie, sorry the answer did not include you being awarded 500 rep :( \$\endgroup\$ – Kortuk Jun 8 '12 at 18:02
  • \$\begingroup\$ Getting down voted by -1 on a random answer anywhere on SE, strangely feels much worse than not being awarded this one bounty. Don't worry, at least I understand the mechanics now. \$\endgroup\$ – jippie Jun 8 '12 at 18:08
  • \$\begingroup\$ @jippie, as has been the hot topic recently, dont take upvotes overly seriously, if someone give you constructive criticism take the time to improve if you want, otherwise ignore them. \$\endgroup\$ – Kortuk Jun 8 '12 at 18:12
  • \$\begingroup\$ How much reputation do I need to earn the privilege of "Free beer at the local pub"? \$\endgroup\$ – jippie Jun 8 '12 at 18:15
  • \$\begingroup\$ Depends on how local the pub is to other users whom value reputation, probably a lot, both reputation and driving. I will buy you a bear when you hit 1k and every 10dB after that. \$\endgroup\$ – Kortuk Jun 8 '12 at 18:16
  • \$\begingroup\$ :o) I start working on that right away! \$\endgroup\$ – jippie Jun 8 '12 at 18:29
