Should the 24-hour timeout apply to bounties awarded for “exemplary answer”?
When I see an answer which is quite good and/or it saved me hours and hours of works, I like that I am able to reward the answerer with 'several upvotes' literally. Bounty system allows just that. There is even a predefined reason for this scenario: One or more of the answers is exemplary and worthy of an additional bounty.
Now, after I put bounty on the question, I have to wait at least 24 hours although in this scenario the answer already exists and the bounty could be awarded the very minute if the system allowed it.
Would it be possible to allow awarding the bounty without the 24 hour delay if this reason was selected?
I don't really mind waiting one day, it just seems contradictory. System gives you an option to additionally award existing answers, but you still have to wait for them to be written (although they already are).
