What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question

It's a known "bug". It is a result of an unresolved bounty (you did not select a winner, and one was not auto selected since no post had 2 or more votes). You will no longer be able to select an answer on this question.
