Here I mean by Investor a person who starts a bounty for somebody else's question.

How can I discuss with an investor? does he receive comments?

You can notify a user who set a bounty on the question by leaving a comment with @TheirName under the question. Although the name does not autocomplete, the ping reaches the user. This works even if the bounty has long expired.

I verified this experimentally, with the help of tchrist and rene, and updated the reference post on Meta accordingly.

And then I found an older post confirming this. It seems that everyone listed in the revision history of a post can be pinged, except for close/reopen voters without a binding vote (i.e., non-mods and non-gold-badge-holders).

  • I'll test this as sone as possible. Does anyone think that I should accept this answer?

  • @touhami It's totally up to you. But I can't imagine what would stop you from doing so.
