Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 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've done quite a bit of searching but don't see anything regarding it.

I am unable to place a bounty on my own, or anyone else's question here on meta.

I see the featured tab is still available, with featured (bounty) questions, so it doesn't look like bounty has been turned off here altogether.

I've looked at questions I've posted with no answers, old questions, questions with different required tags, and lots of other people's questions - no more bounty link. – Adam Davis Jan 21 '11 at 19:24

I'm seeing the link - how old are the questions? Do you have a bounty on another question already? – ChrisF Jan 21 '11 at 19:26
    
@ChrisF - I have a selection of questions: meta.stackoverflow.com/users/2915/pollyanna#questions from which to choose. Sorting by most recent there are many within the last month or two that have no answers. I can't see any bounty link on any of them. – Adam Davis Jan 21 '11 at 19:31

@ChrisF There are only 9 featured questions and none of them are from Pollyanna – Grace Note Jan 21 '11 at 19:31
    
Here's an example: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/47667/… - I don't get a bounty link. – Adam Davis Jan 21 '11 at 19:32
    
@Grace - Yeah, I'm not currently running any bounties. Are we only allowed to run one bounty at a time? – Adam Davis Jan 21 '11 at 19:32

Yes, you're only allowed to run one bounty at a time. I'm able to run bounties here, still. Maybe you're restricted because of the ol' lotteries you used to run. ♪ – Grace Note Jan 21 '11 at 19:33
    
For the sake of posterity, post a screenshot of your inability to post bounties. – Grace Note Jan 21 '11 at 19:34
    
DRAMATIC GASP! Don't tell I've been blacklisted!?! – Adam Davis Jan 21 '11 at 19:34
    
@Grace - I did check myself but when I saw your comment deleted I didn't answer. – ChrisF Jan 21 '11 at 19:36

Well, that's very mysterious. I'm suddenly a lot more confident in my conspiracy theory than any of the more plausible theories. – Grace Note Jan 21 '11 at 19:39
    
Glad that balpha sorted this out - I'll fix the delete code (only usable by mods in this case) to properly remove bounties. – Jarrod Dixon Jan 23 '11 at 9:59

Issue resolved in chat. Relevant bit of the transcript starts around here; will create a conversation out of it after discussion ends (if I remember). and here's the full transcript. Unfortunately, it has a lot of side conversation mixed in.

Would you please sum up the relevant bit? I got lost at bacaon. – Louis Apr 23 '14 at 5:52

I don't even know anymore. The timeline on that post is... confusing. I think it had something to do with a post being deleted while it still had an open bounty. This was back in the one-bounty-at-a-time days, so the system thought the user had one going, but since the post was deleted he couldn't award it, either. Anyways, it's since been resolved. – Pops May 11 '14 at 19:32
    
Apparently one may only have one bounty going at a time. – aparente001 Aug 29 '15 at 2:39
    
That was true at the time, but not anymore. See this bounty update blog post. – Pops Aug 31 '15 at 15:27

Appears to be related to a deleted question with my bounty on it, apparently still active:

I recently had a bounty question from SO moved here, and I have the same issue. The user that received the bounty doesn't have a MSO account. – Tim Post Jan 21 '11 at 20:48
