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 am receiving the following notification:

Have you considered accepting an answer or starting a bounty for this question? Rails audit system

but there is no "start bounty" link! I can't see how to start a bounty on my question.

Might sound silly, but do you have active bounty on other question? (Yours or not, it doesn't matter) EDIT: I see you started bounty on May 14 so question is, did you grant it to someone by now? – Shadow Wizard May 17 '11 at 10:25
oh yes I have opened bounrty on other question - that can be reason.. notification make me a little confused – Fivell May 17 '11 at 10:33
OK, this clears things up - see my edit. – Shadow Wizard May 17 '11 at 10:44

Are you sure you look in the right place? Should be available from the question page:

Following comments, the problem is that you already have active bounty on other question.

The FAQ mentions this as part of the "Which questions are eligible?" section but it might be good feature request to not show the notification in such case, or show the "start a bounty" link anyway and clicking it will produce message saying something like "You already have active bounty on (question here) please award it first".

there is no link/button for bounty on the question page – Fivell May 17 '11 at 10:25
@Fivell see my comment on your question then.. – Shadow Wizard May 17 '11 at 10:26
That sounds like a good feature-request in your edit. Why not make a real feature-request out of it? – Hendrik Vogt May 17 '11 at 13:45
@Hendrik - I got to go now, so the stage is all yours. :-) – Shadow Wizard May 17 '11 at 15:23
