I was about to offer a bounty on a question and noticed that the 50 point bounty is not available anymore.

I think before I was offered the option between 50, 100, and 150. Now it is 100 - 500 in various increments.

Is this because I have a bounty out already, or was there a site wide change?

Two factors will increase the minumum bounty.

  • If you answered the question, you start at 100 for a bounty.
  • If you offer multiple bounties on one post, it increases exact iteration.
  • nice, that was the other difference that I didn't pay attention to.
