Minimum bounty on a question is now 100 rep?

I recently found more information about a question I asked some time ago. To re-kindle interest, I was going to offer a bounty (again) but I'm seeing 500 rep as the only option for how large of a bounty I want to offer.

Is this by design?

Once you set a bounty for a question, you can only set a bounty GREATER (and double) than the previous bounty that you had already set.

So since you had already set a bounty for 250 the only bounty you can now set is the next amount (which is also the greatest amount) of 500.
