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

Possible Duplicates:
How does the bounty system work?
Why can't a user have simultaneous bounties any more?

I wanted to offer a bounty on this question of mine, but I can't. Is this because I already have an outstanding bounty on another question?


It has been confirmed that only one bounty at-a-time is allowed. My next question is why?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Yes, you can only have one active bounty at a time. – Cody Gray Aug 3 '11 at 10:37
According to Jeff, this is a temporary state of affairs. Of course, that was over a year ago. Maybe you could ask him if there are enough data for a policy change now. – Pops Aug 3 '11 at 14:12

From the FAQ:

There can only be 1 active bounty per question and per user at any given time.
