What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

Placing a bounty on a question changes its last activity timestamp and bumps it to the front page, the same as posting a new answer or editing the question or one of its answers.

It would be nice to be notified when someone else is assigning a bounty on one of your own questions - it might be just a notification in the brand new notification tab of the StackExchange™ MultiCollider SuperDropdown™ instead of a full inbox message.

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.

Consider yourself notified. :P – Shokhet Dec 19 '14 at 6:26
@Shokhet lol, this works well! ;-) – Shadow Wizard Dec 19 '14 at 9:09
Voting not to close as a duplicate. This question asks to notify for questions you've asked; the other for questions you've asked or answered. IMO these are related but slightly different feature-requests. – S.L. Barth Jul 14 at 13:50
@S.L.Barth not different enough to justify both being open IMO, used self hammer to close. – Shadow Wizard Jul 14 at 13:52

I'd like to propose an addendum: With the notification, also display a list of your questions with bounties (active or inactive) in a tab along side the other bounty tabs on your user profile.

With this in place, I'd expect to see something like:

| Active | Offered | Earned | My Questions |
