Can I start a bounty on another user's question who has accepted the answer but it doesn't answer my doubts and the question has become inactive?

    $\begingroup$ Sure, why not? There's an "improve details" bounty reason, among other things. $\endgroup$ Nov 12, 2017 at 10:32

    $\begingroup$ There is also a custom text block you can add explaining the reason for offering the bounty. Since you are a fairly new user, I'd be willing to post a bounty for you if you add the specific Question and what doubts about it you'd like resolved. Chances are if you've seen a gap in the reasoning, other Readers may benefit from the same clarification. $\endgroup$
