In this question, bounty dropdown defaults at value 250, while the minimum allowed is 50 - why is that?
To preemptively address ideas that this might be because question already had a 250 bounty (which BTW would still make it confusing, but whatever), dropdown defaulted at 250 even before any bounty was assigned "per discussion at TWP chat before any bounty was assigned") at the question.
For comparison, in another question dropdown defaults at 50, not at 250.
I would like to understand: What causes such a difference? How is the default picked in these questions?
It's not the first time I notice a default bounty value being some random digit larger than the minimum allowed. Having offered more than 300 bounties at three sites 1, 2, and 3, I consider self quite experienced in this feature, but I have to admit, every time I see this happen, it feels weird... just weird.
