I was second to answer a question which as it happened turned out to be decently voted and accepted by the OP. It is currently the top voted answer on the question.
Later another user put a bounty on the Question so in order to gain it, I edited my answer to make it more valuable in terms of info.
But when I read the bounty page it says:
If you do not award your bounty within 7 days (plus the grace period), the highest voted answer created after the bounty started with a minimum score of 2 will be awarded half the bounty amount.
So does that mean that no matter how much I improve my answer, it still won't be eligible for bounty award unless the person offering it manually awards the bounty?
If yes, why are older answers updated after the bounty offer not eligible for the automatic award?
