I do not know if it is a bug, but I seem to remember a few months back there was some text saying "this question will be eligible for bounty in X hours", but now I do not see it.

Why is it gone? Do I remember correctly that it was there earlier?

(this is the question, I want to reward Daniel R. Collins for his very short and logical answer)

  • \$\begingroup\$ Hmm, AFAIK it should show you. Unless this is a bug or some extra weird rules around the text. At any rate, if you're unsure - the bounty option should be available 48 hours after posting the question. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ I wonder if it's because there is an accepted answer. TBH, I don't think it should make a difference but maybe the system counts it as "User probably doesn't want a bounty". \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ @VLAZ Yes, I saw a meta.se post earlier about how the message doesn’t show when you’ve accepted an answer already. \$\endgroup\$ Feb 3 at 18:13

Accepting an answer removes the "question eligible for bounty in x hours/days" link from your question, though "Start a bounty" will appear once the question is eligible (at least 48 hours old). See Why is the "question eligible for bounty in x hours/days" link not shown when you accepted an answer?
