I'd like to offer a bounty on someone else's question, though the minimum I can offer is 100 points of reputation.

Posting this question in itself demonstrates my lack of generosity of spirit, yet at the same time I'm curious to know why I must offer up 100 points instead of the 50 points minimum which I could offer on my own question!

    If that question already has an answer that is posted by you before, then the minimum points you must offer is 100. Check this. But if that is not the case in your scenario, then i guess it must be SO policy – Gautam Sheth Jul 30 '18 at 12:49
  • Thanks Gautam, that does explain it. I did Answer the question already. I could delete my Answer and then put it up for a 'cheaper' bounty, but I think the Answer is worth keeping as part of the research. I read about the reason for the '100 points policy if you've posted an Answer on the question', but I think for SP SE it makes less sense. I seldom see questions receiving 10 upvotes! Although searching I do find several hundred, but these are spread over several years... – Tally Jul 30 '18 at 13:28
