An attempt to set a bounty on any question results in 404 at the URL

{site}/posts/bounty/start/{post-id} 

{post-id} being the actual post id.

I haven't tried every SE site, but given that this occurs on Mathematics and here on Meta...

    I don't believe it's necessary for a representative of every SE site to confirm that their site is affected... – user Mar 25 '15 at 12:42

    @NajibIdrissi of course not, but admit it, it's fun ;) – Shadow9 Mar 25 '15 at 14:12

This will be fixed in the next build (rev 2015.3.25.3204 on meta, 2015.3.25.2409 on sites).

To verify that the fix actually works I urge you to award me a bounty.

  • First make exception on this question to overcome the 48 hours block... ;) – Shadow9 Mar 25 '15 at 14:12
  • It'd suffice to open one (which was the error in the first place), and accept my answer, the rest is magic – m0sa Mar 25 '15 at 14:13

    But a bounty can't be even started within 48 hours. Sorry, no bounty for you. – user259867 Mar 25 '15 at 14:15

    @m0sa - I believe Shadow is talking about the 2 day waiting period before one can start a bounty on a question. – Oded Mar 25 '15 at 14:16

    in hindsight, I should've let the bug be for another 2 days... I'll remember that for the next time :P – m0sa Mar 25 '15 at 14:20
  • But I think the real question is.. are there any checks if I manually send the POST request? :p – ɥʇǝS Mar 26 '15 at 18:38

    Look I'm not being funny but how come you guys don't have regression tests for this stuff??? – Lightness Races BY-SA 3.0 Apr 1 '15 at 0:03
