I was expecting, when clicking on the
Badges option, for the results to be the same whether from meta or main, though I appreciate what is displayed at the very top of the page, between reputation and total posts awaiting review (when shown) differs - but then reputation differs between the main and meta anyway.
Obviously that is not the case but this drew my attention to the first entry on the meta version:
Altruist, a badge for First bounty you manually award on another person's question.
There are a number of Qs of mine on meta I would appreciate As to and many from other users too.
How might I offer a bounty on these as meta does not seem to have a
start a bounty button where it may be found on main (ie near the Q's
add a comment)?
