# Unsatisfied Bounty

My bounty on Coating Every Pancake expires shortly but no one has answered the question in the Pancake Stack language which was the goal of the bounty.

Should I just let the bounty run out and award it to the best existing answer? Can I request an extension? Are there other options?

• I was distracted by all the unnecessary global statements in the implementation. You don't need it where you are mutating a variable. only when it is rebound – gnibbler Oct 7 '14 at 9:34
• For the record, I tried, but the fact that it's impossible to reach the third element of the stack or below without modifying the top two items makes this quite difficult! – Doorknob Oct 7 '14 at 11:17
• @gnibbler Sorry about that. I just threw it together in about 2 hours coding on a Saturday. Just for fun. I didn't really care that much about if I was doing it completely right. I thought that the global statements were necessary, however. Now I know better. Thanks. – Justin Oct 7 '14 at 21:41
• @gnibbler There: ideone.com/h0Nxst . I didn't replace the link in the esolang page, because Calvin's Hobbies created a link for his/her bounty. – Justin Oct 7 '14 at 21:48
• @Quincunx, you still need the ones for the rebinding of variables. eg line = . Otherwise a local variable is created instead. Sorry for the confusion – gnibbler Oct 7 '14 at 21:50
• @gnibbler Those two places are the only places where that's needed. Sorry for not thinking about it. – Justin Oct 7 '14 at 22:07
• I'm in a similar boat; I've got a bounty expiring where the only answer is by me as a community answer. :( – Will Oct 10 '14 at 6:37
