Possible Duplicates:
How does the bounty system work?
Why can't a user have simultaneous bounties any more?

I wanted to offer a bounty on this question of mine, but I can't. Is this because I already have an outstanding bounty on another question?


It has been confirmed that only one bounty at-a-time is allowed. My next question is why?
