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

So I really like this question and wanted it to get some more attention. I thought starting a bounty would be a great idea, but for some reason I'm not able to. It's been open for two days?

Is there some criteria that it doesn't meet that I'm over looking?

There is a "start a bounty" link. Can you even see it, even after clearing your cache? – random Jul 12 '10 at 5:30
@random: Nope. I can't see it in any of my browsers (Google Chrome, Firefox 4.01b, Safari 5, IE). I also tried it in all of their "porn" modes. – Dexter Jul 12 '10 at 6:24
@random: Also just tried on my blackberry and I didn't see it either. – Dexter Jul 12 '10 at 6:33
Is there a rep requirement for starting a bounty on other people's questions, perhaps? I can't say I've really kept up with the feature in detail... – Jon Skeet Jul 12 '10 at 6:53
@Jon: Same here. As much as I love the new bounty changes, they are quite hard to keep up with. – Dexter Jul 12 '10 at 7:36

My guess ... you already have a bounty open...

The code reads, show the bounty link if

  1. Its a question
  2. Its not Closed / Locked or Deleted
  3. It was created 2 days ago or before
  4. You do not have an open bounty
  5. You have more than 100 rep
  6. You are not on a child meta site

Eureka! Man there are a lot of rules for the bounties. – Dexter Jul 12 '10 at 7:04
