Why can’t I just offer a bounty for a question right off the bat?

As most of us know now, when a question has a bounty, it can gain more answers faster than the questions without a bounty. It just so happens that I needed an answer to my question in SU and I need to get a good answer really really fast. But since there is a threshold for giving a bounty, I will still have to wait longer instead of getting the answers faster. I think 48 hours is too long. Maybe we could at least make it 24 hours.

    Why did you need it really really fast? – GManNickG Oct 11 '09 at 17:14

    This is not an exact duplicate of the linked question. The linked question wants to completely remove the waiting period. – Pëkka Feb 2 '10 at 13:12
