What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question

  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I have a problem on SE in finding a question (and valuable answers) that has been listed on the "Featured" tab for some days. Now it's disappeared from this tab, presumably because bounty period is over, and I'm trying to find it by tag, but this gives too many irrelevant questions, so I gave up.

The question: is it possible to search (filter) questions that currently have, or ever have had a bounty?

Add hasnotice:1 to your search criteria. – Aziz Shaikh Nov 30 '12 at 9:38
@AzizShaikh - I think this may not work. Because he wants hadnotice:1. :) – hims056 Nov 30 '12 at 9:40
Yes, I've tried this, but got very few questions, and half of them are not marked by bounty. – Stan Nov 30 '12 at 9:42
@Bart - I think here the OP wants to find question which had bounty not has bounty. – hims056 Nov 30 '12 at 9:46
@hims056 Yeah, I saw my error. Removed the comment. Ignore the close vote. – Bart Nov 30 '12 at 9:47
@AzizShaikh - No. It shows that question in the result because it has bounty worth 200 rep. by RoflcoptrException. – hims056 Nov 30 '12 at 9:50
@AzizShaikh - Once the grace period is over, the question will not be listed in the search result. – hims056 Nov 30 '12 at 9:57
@AzizShaikh - Proof. Search result for [programming-languages] [haskell] [modeling] [functional-programming] shows 1 question which had a bounty while search result for [programming-languages] [haskell] [modeling] [functional-programming] hasnotice:1 shows 0 question. :) – hims056 Nov 30 '12 at 10:09
@hims056 As you correctly mentioned, notice was removed from the post. – Aziz Shaikh Nov 30 '12 at 11:57… is another proposal to make past bounties more visible. – Nemo Apr 29 '15 at 22:21
