It's been more than five days since I posted this question, yet I cannot see the option to offer bounty. I think someone also requested the question be closed (there's 1 mentioned in parenthesis besides the close button), does it have something to do with the inability to place bounty?

1 Answer 1


Today I noticed I can offer a bounty, and promptly did so. Can't figure out the reason.

  • @MarcoCeppi That should be an answer instead... despite being 5 years old. But, please edit it: it's 2 days now, not 5 days. Maybe it was 5 days in the past.
