@Arkia - Right, the improvements were added after your bounty was completed, so you'll have to wait until the next go around to get the new notifications.

@Uta - Yeah, the time is accurate.

I know I'd probably get my head cut off for asking probably a stupid question that I didn't think of at the last time I had any questions. With how the bounties along with FOTM got an overhaul in some way as I remember back then couldn't enter any guides that were written for a bounty be entered in FOTM as I can't remember if that's still true now or did it change? I tried looking but don't think I was able to find an answer for sure as I probably wasn't using the correct wording for it and want to double check on that for future reference since FOTM doesn't have the payout in gift cards anymore.

You don't have to enter FotM any more, we'll just be picking from all submitted guides from that month.

Added some new bounties. Still haven't added in a notification system yet, it's on the to-do list.

Something I was curious about even on the old system. Do updates to a previously submitted guide, especially large updates reviewed? I never cared about the FOTM money, but I did have the hope of submitting my solitary FAQ for it once I felt it deserved it. I'm now well out of range from the original submission date, so I'm wondering if it's still possible to win one with a significant update.

A guide is considered for FotM on the month that it is first changed to Complete status.

Another reason why the guide should be held in incomplete state.

How about Bonus Bounties? Does it work for the updated version of completed FAQ?

Bonus Bounties would be considered when the guide was marked as complete for the first time. Otherwise people could update guides from 10 years ago and expect one. :)

Having said that, we might be inclined to go back to recently completed guides from the past few months and pick something we think has really benefited our users.

Well, yea. Of course a guide is only considered once for FotM, in the month you submitted it, not every month thereafter. This doesn't mean a guide can't be marked complete on March 1st and then improved for the rest of March.

The question was, would a significant update to an existing guide re-qualify it. The main reason I marked my Guide as complete was to try and claim the Bounty, but it was awarded to Heropon instead, so I figured I could take my time, perfect the guide, and hopefully get FotM for no other reason than the 'prestige' of it, but it seems that's not possible either.
