I'd like to put a bounty on my question, but I don't have enough reputation. How do I add a bounty under these circumstances?

If you don't have enough reputation... you can't make it a bounty question. That's rather the point of the restriction, isn't it? Like anywhere else that you spend some quantity for a service, if you have insufficient funds you can't get the service, plain and simple.

  • is there any thing like :Transfer Reputation between users IT might be good idea to do that ..

    @joe If they're separate people... no. The point of reputation is to be earned, it isn't a resource for users to trade around willy-nilly. Wait for that user to give an opportunity to earn your upvotes, then they'll get reputation as a result.

  • Agreed; perhaps the fact that one uses reputation to "buy" bounties is causing more people to view rep as currency instead of a meritorious reflection of their contributions to the site? Jun 18, 2010 at 17:25
  • Well, speaking about money, there is credit card allowing one to buy things even when he/she doesn't really have enough money. May 26, 2016 at 22:12
