Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

The times when a bounty is placed and when it is awarded are apparently important enough to be part of the revision history of a question. However, there is an inconsistency for questions like this one which have not been edited. Since no user edited the question, that information is not visible anywhere.

I'm not sure what implementation makes sense to fix this. Perhaps the revision history should become non-empty when a bounty is placed. Perhaps the information should be placed elsewhere. The point is that it's inconsistent to show the timing of bounty events only when the edit history is non-empty.

@Flexo I didn't know that, but that still makes one wonder why there's no link to those pages if they indeed exist. – Michael McGowan Jun 22 '12 at 16:21
