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

Yesterday I asked a question on SuperUser and it happened to have 55 views and no answers so far!

When I wanted to start a bounty I realized that unlike my stackoverflow account there is no 'Start a bounty' link down there because of my low repu; hence asking the question here!

Is something like this going to be implemented?

Note: you do have the required reputation (you only need 75), you just need to wait longer as jonsca points out. – Jeff Mercado Jun 5 '11 at 8:48
p.s., Setting bounties using reputation from another site is declined. Transferring reputation between sites is in all liklihood, not going to happen. – Jeff Mercado Jun 5 '11 at 8:56
Thanks for clarification ( -- and for down-votes! :p ) – Hossein Jun 6 '11 at 9:28

You seem to have enough rep. You need to wait 48 hours to be able to set a bounty on your question.

I would say no because reputation is separate for every stack because if I'm a great programmer and a bad mathematician then I should NOT have a good rep on the math stack and the reverse applies to I wouldn't want people to think I was a bad programmer because I am a a bad mathematician

if I'm a great programmer and a bad mathematician then I should have a good rep on the math stack - are you sure that's what you meant? O.o – David Thomas Jun 5 '11 at 10:27
@david Thomas thanks I missed that – mcgrailm Jun 5 '11 at 15:54

When I checked few minutes ago, the reputation you had on SuperUser was 111, and the minimum reputation necessary to set a bounty is 75. The problem is not the reputation but, as @jonsca said, the fact you need to wait, before to set a bounty for your question.
