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.

Are you referring to the question you asked a mere 2 hours ago? Patience young grasshopper. – Bart Mar 7 '13 at 17:49
well as it's quite an obvious question with popular tags I was expecting some more feedback but it seems its more complicated than that.. .if you have any tips on improving it, they are very welcome! – George Katsanos Mar 7 '13 at 17:50
If so, wouldn't the time before the "minimum" be the actual "minimum"? – Wooble Mar 7 '13 at 17:53
@Wooble Oh stop it with all your logic and reason. When has that ever done anyone any good? ;) – Bart Mar 7 '13 at 17:55
wise-asses! :P by asking "if its possible" I'm implying "reduce the minimum" ! :D it's called being subtle :-) – George Katsanos Mar 7 '13 at 17:57
Then make something called a feature request. – Bart Mar 7 '13 at 18:07

No, that is not possible. But you can do something else:

Edit your question. By doing so, It will be pushed in the active questions queue. When editing your question keep in mind:

  • Make your question title interesting but informative
  • Post with the proper tags. If appropriate with high viewed tags*
  • Put effort in your question, give details and avoid chatting. Too long questions scare off

* Many users watch their favorite tags

No, you must wait the minimum 2 days before setting a bounty.

There is a 2 day minimum on starting a bounty as when a question is new, it already shows up decently high in the tag page and on the new questions list.
