What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I know that the per-site meta systems aren't allowed to have bounties. However, this meta has always been allowed to have them, at least, I thought. For example, I wanted to set a bounty on this question (which is ironically about bounties), but the button to add one doesn't appear.

Was an intentional change made here to disallow bounties or is that a bug?

EDIT: To clarify, there's no button. Here's a screenshot:

If this is a trick to get us to bounty up your question while trying to reproduce this, I am going to be sooooooooooooooooo impressed. – Shog9 Jun 2 '11 at 6:18
@Shog9: Lol -- I just want to put one on it myself, but I can't. If you put one on my question to try to reproduce it then you've not reproduced it ('cause you had to see the button to add one). – Billy ONeal Jun 2 '11 at 6:20
Oh, so you don't even see the button? I misread your question then; perhaps "the button doesn't appear to add one" could read, "the button to add one doesn't appear"... – Shog9 Jun 2 '11 at 6:23
@Shog9: Agree that's better written. Done. – Billy ONeal Jun 2 '11 at 6:24
@Shog9: Also added a screenshot -- now there's a screenshot inside of a screenshot... maybe I should screenshot this page... – Billy ONeal Jun 2 '11 at 6:27

You had a bounty on a deleted question - http://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/58423/so-retag-request-gnu-flex-flex-lexer

I'll update our auto-bounty-award task to remove and refund any bounties it encounters on deleted questions.

Either you already have a bounty on another question (that's the correct answer to this question most of the time) or you have a "broken" old bounty on a question that something unusual happened to.

Can that be fixed then? There's only one active bounty right now at it's not mine. – Billy ONeal Jun 2 '11 at 8:02
