I currently have a question up here: Optimizing Python Image Viewer and General Code Format Advise. Currently there are no answers, and the faq states "In any case, you will always give up the amount of reputation specified in the bounty". Does this mean I will lose 50 of my rep points even though nobody has answered my question?
Indeed it does per https://codereview.stackexchange.com/faq#bounty
In any case, you will always give up the amount of reputation specified in the bounty, so if you start a bounty, be sure to follow up and award your bounty to the best answer!
I suggest sharing a link to the question with any friends or colleagues who might be interested in viewing your code -- or broadcast it on Twitter, Facebook, etc using the sharing links on the question.
