I want to start a bounty on this question, however the
[start a bounty] link isn't there.
I should meet the requirements posted on the SO meta. I have the required rep, the question is over 2 days old, and I have never created a bounty on this site before.
Are the requirements for starting a bounty here different from any other SE site? Or is there something else going on that would prevent me from starting a bounty on my question?
