Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

When a post gets bumped to the top of active tab due to a new bounty, the "modified" timestamp should link to the bounty message.

Background: New Community Review badges post was bumped to the top in active tab and it took a bit of research to find out what actually caused this bump. I was expecting that clicking on the modified link would show me what got updated. There were no new answers and no edits to question or existing answers. I checked the timeline, didn't help. Since the edit timestamp of the question was not recent so checking revisions didn't cross my mind. By chance I saw the date on the bounty message and figured that adding bounty bumped the post.

So, I believe that clicking on "modified" link should somehow show the bounty message or bring it into the viewable area.

A userscript of mine should help you in this case - you don't have to click the link to find out what causes the bump. – Antony Jul 4 '13 at 15:14
