I had asked this question 2 days back, and now I see at the bottom, the link " question eligible for bounty since 1 hour ago", and if I click on it, it takes me to the bounty information page. I don't see the "start bounty" button on this question. I have bounty previleges and I see the "start bounty" button on some of my other questions. I have not started any bounty till now on this question. How can I start a bounty on this question.

  • $\begingroup$ @quid : Have been doing that for the past half hour hoping that it is going through some extra period befor bounty being enabled. $\endgroup$ – Rajesh Dachiraju Feb 24 '16 at 7:46
  • $\begingroup$ @quid : do you see the "start bounty" button on your end? $\endgroup$ – Rajesh Dachiraju Feb 24 '16 at 7:46
  • $\begingroup$ Yes, looks normal to me. $\endgroup$ – user9072 Feb 24 '16 at 7:48
  • $\begingroup$ @quid : If I may dare ask, could you please offer a bounty of 50 points on this question, if you feel its a worth question? $\endgroup$ – Rajesh Dachiraju Feb 24 '16 at 7:49
  • $\begingroup$ I did not read the question, and thus have no opinion on it either way. $\endgroup$ – user9072 Feb 24 '16 at 7:50
  • $\begingroup$ @quid : BTW, I have also wrote an answer for it, and feel its almost correct, could you take a look at it? Its not that complicated. $\endgroup$ – Rajesh Dachiraju Feb 24 '16 at 7:51

    $\begingroup$ Now I am able to get "start bounty", but when I asked this question my rep was 91, and I needed minimum of 100 points to offer as I have my own answer written on that question. $\endgroup$ – Rajesh Dachiraju Feb 24 '16 at 8:50
  • $\begingroup$ Ah, I did not think of that restriction. Maybe write it up as an answer. $\endgroup$ – user9072 Feb 24 '16 at 11:11
