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.
