Why can't I start a bounty?

  • I guess it is because I don't have enough points! Maybe this should be said somewhere!

1 Answer 1


You do not have enough reputation to add another bounty. You added a 250 rep bounty on December 5th. For you to add another one, you must double the reputation. You do not have 500 reputation to offer such a bounty.

    However, this should bring a warning. I'm tempted to consider this a boundary bug/feature-request.
