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'm attempting to start a bounty on this question, but every time I click the "start a bounty" button, I get "Unable to load popup, please try again". I've tried refreshing the page and even logging out/in again, but none of that has worked.

Using the web developer toolbar in Firefox, I got this:

GET [HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found 446ms]

Seems like a bug in the JavaScript.

Reproduced (Chromium 15 on Linux if that matters) – Mat Nov 3 '11 at 7:04
fixing it ... I made a big structure change on our question page today ... – waffles Nov 3 '11 at 7:06
Cheers @Mat. Just for the record, my browser is Firefox 7.0.1 (though as Mat stated it's probably browser independant) – Polynomial Nov 3 '11 at 7:06
Thanks for the quick update, @waffles. Glad to see there's such a great response speed for bugfixes! I'm about to head off to work so I'll test it again in a couple hours (long commute!) – Polynomial Nov 3 '11 at 7:07

Today I changed our html structure so the questions live in a node with the class question as opposed to the id question.

Clearly, it did not involve too many changes, only had to touch 70 files or so, but I missed a couple of js spots.

Just deployed a fix
