Why does American English pluralize certain singular nouns? has an open bounty of +500 from the Community. How does that work?

1 Answer 1


Usually it's because a user had a bounty but requested deletion while the bounty was live.

  • Shouldn't the bounty be removed, in that case? How is the Community user going to award it, after all?

  • @Martha It'll happen as an auto-award (half bounty to the highest voted answer (min. score of 2) posted after the bounty was started) after it expires.

  • @martha that's covered in the english.stackexchange.com/faq#bounty rules for sure, see the bulleted list at the bottom there. Sep 7, 2011 at 6:04
