This Bounty question looks to me as if it were

  • off topic and
  • a crosspost

For this question - assume it were off-topic.

How should these kind of questions be handled?

Close and Flag for moving do not work on bounty-questions.

IMO this should be deleted/closed by a moderator.

The detail question is - should the bounty be reawarded to the OP in this progress yes or no?

  • Something like this was asked on main Meta: meta.stackexchange.com/q/14591.

  • @Tshepang I see a bias towards refunding there.

  • I'm not actually convinced it's offtopic... the problem seems to be a terminal one, I could be wrong, but that seems like what is being discussed. Jul 9, 2013 at 5:28
  • If it is off-topic here, where else should it be asked?

  • @manatwork this looks like a PHP problem. PHP is a programming language that does not belong to the core-installation. SuperUser ist there for programming questions. But I will edit my question.

  • @xenoterracide I reworded my question to get to the core of the question. That is not related to a specific question.

It should be flagged for moderator attention, this question already was. The crosspost was removed of StackOverflow, and although this question originally really read like it was a PHP problem, a very close read instead made it seem more like a terminal problem or expectation problem. The accepted answer also confirms this.
