If you're viewing an unfiltered bounty listing in someone's profile[jeff] the header N bounties isn't capitalized, though every other profile section header is.

4 bounties

I think the actual problem is that the unfiltered bounty listing isn't supposed to be displayed. Once you select a filter (active, offered or earned) there seems to be no way to clear it and return to the unfiltered listing. It also doesn't really make sense to throw offered and earned bounties in together.


edit: This doesn't use the header in question, but you can get the unsorted bounty list with a variety of other headers by using different sort values in the query string:

Also,

I guess the tabs share the same sort options, internally, but bounties are the only tab that also uses it for filtering and modifying the title and so is alone in having this bug.

"If you're viewing an unfiltered bounty listing in someone's profile"

That shouldn't happen in the first place, it will default to "active" bounties...so the capitalization is correct, it should never appear by itself was the bug.

Handling of wacky sort cases passed in will be addressed in the next build, if you pass in crap that doesn't make sense, you'll get the default. Thanks for causing spam in the error log, jerk! :)

I wasn't doing anything wacky in the first place, I only started playing with these options trying to recreate the bug I saw (and never found query values that produce that header). I just noticed it while viewing someone's profile. –  Jeremy Banks Jan 10 '12 at 22:07
    
@Jeremy - You had a bad sort that stickied from a previous attempt...there's no way to get to that a bad sort via the UI unless I've missed something major –  Nick Craver Jan 10 '12 at 22:08
    
Reproduced: I logged into a different account in a new private browsing session and went to a bounty tab. "active" was shown as selected but the header said "1 bounty" and the listed bounty wasn't active. When I clicked on "active" it changed to "0 active bounties". From here, I don't know any sort values to restore the exact heading of "1 bounty". –  Jeremy Banks Jan 10 '12 at 22:15
    
Actually, no need to log in to another account. Just viewing a profile anonymously in a private browsing session produces the incorrect header and filter. –  Jeremy Banks Jan 10 '12 at 22:20

@Jeremy - ah found your entry point...already fixed in the next build –  Nick Craver Jan 10 '12 at 22:25
    
    
Will invalid values also be ignored for the other tabs? The activity tab will save an invalid value, but give you an error page for it. The result is that by linking you to /users/1114/jeremy-banks?tab=activity&sort=0 I can prevent you from being able to see anybody's activity tabs (until you manually correct the sort value). –  Jeremy Banks Jan 10 '12 at 23:47
    
@Jeremy - yup, they're fixed as well. –  Nick Craver Jan 10 '12 at 23:49
