Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I found a question from April, with 0 answers. I would really like to see the solution of it. I've starred it and upvoted it, and even left a comment, but I don't think it's being bumped.

I want to offer a bounty, but for some reason there is no link at the bottom of the post on my screen that allows me to do so. What is going on here?

To offer a bounty:

  • You must have at least 100 reputation
  • The question must be at least 2 days old
  • You have no other bounties active

If you pass all those critera, there is a bug related to bounty offering.

If you add a bounty on a question which gets deleted before the bounty expires, then the bounty is still "active". This needs to be fixed by a moderator or super-admin.
