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

One of my questions had not so good answers and I would start a bounty right now.

Why do I have to wait so long?

From the FAQ

Questions must be at least 2 days old to be eligible for a bounty.

so I think that it is actually two days that you have to wait. I believe that the reason is to give people a chance to respond before putting a bounty on it. If you believe that your question is too far down the main page try editing it if you have more information and that will bump it up.
