there is an open bounty worth 100 reputation on my question and i consider that my answer is the best, though no one has voted for it...can i accept my own answer and receive the bounty.

The question has been closed for the following reason "Only applies to old Inward Quest software. No longer relevant." by Simon Templeton Dec 31 '11 at 12:39

I don't know. No-one has ever tried it as far as I am aware. The point of the bounty is to encourage others to answer a question that you cannot answer yourself.

Even if it works, grabbing those bounty points for yourself is probably not going to make you very popular.

@simon-thanks for your reply, yes i agree its unethical to grab those points.

i'd like to explain how i see this...gaining points is nice but irrelevant, only the questions and answers are important to me.

let me take the example of my question "does function create the organ", i really wanted an answer and felt incapable of finding the solution alone. the answers given on iq seemed to fire my imagination and thanks to those answers i eventually found a suitable solution to the question.

then came the question, which answer should i accept for the bounty? the only answer that seems correct is my own...i thought it would be unethical to choose any other answer. however, choosing my own answer could also be considered as being unethical, so i chose the answer that seems closest to my own.
