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

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 '15 at 13:50
@S.L.Barth not different enough to justify both being open IMO, used self hammer to close. – Shadow Wizard Jul 14 '15 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 |
