I would like to start a bounty on my own question. But I only see the following link: enter image description here

If I go to any other question, then I do see the link:

What is going on here?

  • $\begingroup$ I see the "start a bounty" link. Does refreshing help? $\endgroup$ Mar 26, 2014 at 13:57
  • $\begingroup$ @DanielFischer No, it doesn't. Its a very odd problem. I've the same problem in both Chrome and Firefox, so it doesn't have anything to do with the browser I'm using (I think). $\endgroup$

I suppose the reason is the following (quote from the FAQ on bounties):

If you are offering a bounty on a question that you have already posted an answer to, your minimum spend is 100 reputation (not 50).

And, of course:

You must have at least 75 reputation to start a bounty, and at least as much reputation as the bounty amount.

At the moment you have less than 100 reputation points, so you cannot start a bounty of 100 points.
