I posted a Movie Identification on Sci-Fi exchange a few months ago. I put a bounty on it, but just before it expired, I still didn't have the correct answer. I wanted the bounty to go to the answer that I thought was the closest so I accepted it even though it was incorrect.
Just recently I reposted the question on Movies exchange and I got the right answer! But it was deleted afterward. I understand where the moderator was coming from when he deleted the post since they are the same question but he deleted the new one with the right answer.
What is the policy on these sorts of issues?
Also why is there is a time limit on a bounty? And why does the bounty automatically go to the answer with the most votes? This was the primary reason I accepted an incorrect answer on my first post. Because I was unhappy with the answer that had the most votes.
