What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 128 Stack Exchange communities.

I don't know whether this is related to the new notification system or not, but I got 10 notifications and counting about the same event — the three-day notice for a bounty — about an hour apart. From http://meta.stackoverflow.com/notices/genuwine (copy-pasted, truncated and indented):

A fix for this will be rolling out in a build being deployed shortly. When we moved the messages to a central location the "does this notice exist check" for bounties wasn't behaving...it will be after the next build.

I confirm that there is a single entry for this bounty in my notification box now. –  Gilles May 25 '12 at 17:07
    
Any chance the fix caused such a bug? –  Shadow Wizard Oct 23 '12 at 18:12
    
@ShaWizDowArd - nope, that's because the message code was not ever updated for non-owner bounties, just fixed though. –  Nick Craver Oct 23 '12 at 20:26
