I was trying to put a bounty on this old question of mine. I know there are some circumstances where bounties of certain amounts cannot be placed, see here, but this does not seem to be one of those situations.

Can you see any reason why trying to add a bounty would lead me to the generic "Page not found" message?

  • $\begingroup$ @MikeF I just tried to place a 50-rep bounty on it, but the same thing happened to me. It seems like the only choice they give you is the "contact us" option--unless someone here knows a workaround. $\endgroup$ Mar 25 '15 at 3:02

    $\begingroup$ This is not just you. Bounties broken network-wide $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Mike, @Woodface, when I try to load the bounty adding dialog, it's fine. When does the process breaks down? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Woodface: Are you saying that the developers just flush bug fixes down the toilet? $\endgroup$
