If I give bounty points for a question and then I delete my account in the future will those bounty points be lost by the answerer when my account is deleted ?

    It is curious you are asking this since you’ve offered zero bounties so far.

    Not sure in what way the two questions are related. Your concern appears to be about bounty points after an account deletion.

    Well, the lack of bounties on your account is a matter of fact, not a personal impression. Anyway no problem, just a curiosity.

    @RaceYouAnytime How kind of you to say so, sir. No, I don't intend to. It was a hypothetical question - made out of curiosity :)

No, bounties remain: they just get transferred to the Community user. This is how Community has those "83 Offered bounties for 10,650 reputation".
