Don't suggest starting a bounty if a bounty is active

When I look at my questions list (for instance this link I can see there a question where I already started a bounty.

In spite of that I can see a label asking me to start a bounty on this question

Have you considered accepting an answer or starting a bounty for this question?

In this case it's about question Positioning of classes in UML diagram where I already started a bounty.

I don't think there should be a label about starting a bounty if I already did it

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Well, according to this it was already "fixed" - maybe the fix has been rolled back for some reason. – Shadow Wizard Apr 11 '12 at 9:52
For some reason I can't see the bounty messages on any of my unaccepted qns in the question list. And I distinctly recall seeing them before. This may be due to the fact that I've offered a bounty and thus the system knows that I know what a bounty is. – Manishearth Apr 11 '12 at 10:00

This was certainly a check we had in place, but due to some data not being pulled back from the database since the user profile refactor (BountyCloses, BountyClosed and BountyAmount on the Post). This caused the checks of "has no active bounty" to pass instead of fail, which used to stop the message from showing in the "hey man, it already had a bounty" case.

This will be fixed in the next build.

Any chance you're now showing only one such message even if user has more than one question with unaccepted answer? In gaming I got about 3 questions that should have that message but only one is showing. Initially thought it's related. – Shadow Wizard Apr 11 '12 at 11:44
@Sha - no, no rules for that, but questions older than 60 days stop showing the message so.... – Nick Craver Apr 11 '12 at 11:49
