I don't want to come across as petty or ungrateful over what are essentially meaningless internet points, so I was just wondering what the rule or general concensus is in this situation. I feel I answered the question quite thoroughly and OP has accepted my answer.
Another answer did get more upvotes than mine though, so I assume this one would get the 50% auto bounty if OP doesn't actively do anything.
The question in question is this one.
Would a quick comment to OP asking what s/he is planning to do with the bounty (if anything) be acceptable, or should I just forget it?
Thinking about it, comments reminding OP to award bounty are about the same as comments reminding OP to accept an answer: Bad form, even if not specifically banned. I'll just leave it.
