I just asked a question on SO and it was closed within 8 minutes, stating that it was a duplicate. To me, the question it was supposedly a duplicate of did NOT answer my question, as my question was more specific.
I do want an answer to my question. I know I have to wait 2 days to open up a bounty.
But what I couldn't find on Meta SO was whether or not I'll be able to offer a bounty on a closed question after the two days is up. Will I? If not, do I have any alternatives?
