I created a question a month or two ago that didn't attract much attention, in hindsight it wasn't really meant for Drupal Answers (It was about a whole mess of LDAP and kerberos stuff).
I set a bounty of 50 rep in the hopes of attracting some help, nobody answered (fact, not a complaint).
I decided to delete the post because it added nothing to the site and was able to do so easily, again no problem.
Surprisingly, my bounty was refunded. My questions are thus:
- Is the bounty supposed to be refunded in these circumstances? and
- What happens if there are answers?
- What happens if there is an awarded bounty?
I ask out of concern that people might rort the system by deleting useful posts to recover rep.
