We very rarely see featured questions in this community so to my surprise I found a rather old question had been bumped up and was interested to see who was bumping it.
It then transpired that the community bot had given a bounty on this question. I am unconvinced that this question needs more attention considering it already has a highly rated answer, and there are several hundred questions on this site with a highly rated answer but not an accepted one.
That being said, how does the community bot go about making these decisions?
(I am aware the bot bumps posts every now and again, and I don't really have a problem with that, the dynamic however changes when it starts offering bounties, especially as the bot cannot pick who to award the bounty to and thus simply seems like a rep boost to the already highest voted answer when the bounty expires)
