Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I have awarded a bounty that is supposed to default tomorrow, because I really want to offer one on a more pressing question. Now that the bounty is awarded, why can't I offer it on my other question?

It might be something else.. when exactly did you ask the question you now want to offer bounty for?

It must be more than 48 hours in the past according to the bounty wiki page.
