Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 133 Stack Exchange communities.

According to the privileges page, when a user starts a bounty,

The question is immediately bumped to the top of the active question list.

I have three active bounties on MSO at the moment, and I don't think a single one of them caused its question to get bumped to the front page when I offered it. The /faq entry and entry don't mention this behavior.

I do remember getting bumps for past bounties and was expecting bumps for these recent bounties. Was that feature disabled?

This was indeed a bug introduced by recent bounty changes (the notices, etc.). It will be corrected in the next build, and questions will be bumped appropriately.

So far as I'm aware, they are supposed to.

But I can't seem to make it happen. Tested it on Programmers.SE, just in case there was some Meta-specific thing happening.

Either this was changed without documentation, or this is a bug - I'm leaning toward the latter.
