I see that this meta question states that I cannot award any points from a bounty after the bounty period expired.
I had a question that was on bounty for a while and nobody answered. I assume, therefore, that nothing was awarded, right?
Today, someone answered the question and I'd like to award a bounty. It doesn't seem like I can do this.
Perhaps, some feature could be added whereby I could award the bounty? Or, do I have to "trick" the system, and begin a new bounty on the question?
If I do that, is there some way that I can now award a bounty on a previous answer, or does the responder have to delete his answer, create a new one and paste his old answer into the new one so that it's current?
