# Offering bounty on own question and accepting own answer?

My question: Yet Another Java GUI Calculator

I'm thinking of offering a bounty to see if I can attract any answers for my "specific feedback", and unless there are any dark horse answers during the 7-day bounty period, I will be very inclined to accept my own answer, or at the very least, bounty expires and... then what?

1. I accept my own answer just before the bounty period ends, but I cannot award the bounty to myself.
2. I let the bounty expire, and assuming there's no newer answer during the bounty period that I really feel like awarding the bounty to, the bounty is not awarded to anyone and... goes to /dev/null?
• I liked your question & answer enough that I starred just to set a bounty. So, there's that in this case. :) – Legato Apr 28 '15 at 1:57
