I'd like to add a bounty to my question, but I can't find out how to add the bounty. I looked on my account page, on the page of the question itself and in the edit view..

I have a reputation of 84 which should suffice.

You need at least 75 rep before you can slice off your ear and offer it up to someone as part of a bounty.

Questions must also be at least 2 days old, as mentioned in this blog post

Thanks! This is what I wanted to know. Couldn't find it in the faq. – user135649 Sep 10 '09 at 9:23
Tonight's search viewing was made possible by: bounty "at least" – random Sep 10 '09 at 9:27
random, you have upvoted him on SO, don't you? – Ladybug Killer Sep 10 '09 at 10:53
Nope. The only related upvote around this whole thing so far has been for a donkey. – random Sep 10 '09 at 10:59
And I thought you upvoted my post before my edit. I always err with humans... – Ladybug Killer Sep 10 '09 at 11:07
+1 for Van Gogh. – John Rudy Sep 10 '09 at 14:19
also only works when there is no accepted answer ;) – cwd Nov 9 '11 at 3:13

Didn't see your edit before putting in those lame brick screenshots. Was caught on the edit screen too long. – random Sep 10 '09 at 9:05
the upvoting of this answer doesn't really help as the add bounty is clearly absent on my end as can be seen on the screenshot.. – user135649 Sep 10 '09 at 9:13
The upvoting is clearly for the animals. Not sure about the bloke trying to blow things up. Like blowing up your rep? What-what! – random Sep 10 '09 at 9:28
Much better, random, much better :) @Wouter: there is a waiting period before you can call a bounty. Have to look up how long it is... – Ladybug Killer Sep 10 '09 at 10:50
Voted up for the answer first, could not upvote any harder for the donkey. – random Sep 10 '09 at 11:10
