I recently put some bounties on a few questions where I was interested in finding out the answer. However, none have been posted during that time. Even without answers, I have to wait out the grace period to 'award' the bounty, which I can't do. This locks down the total number of active bounties I can offer so I can't put new ones out on other questions.
Is it possible to remove the grace period for bounties if no answers have been posted?
