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

I was looking at a recent question here on bounties, and I wanted to use StackQL to prove that questions with bounties get more views and answers on average than questions without, and quantify just how much based on the bounty level. However, it turns out that there's no information on bounties in data set. Please add BountyAmount (int) and BountyAwarded (DateTime) columns to the posts table in the data.

On further reflection, there's no need for the BountyAwarded column. Any question with a BountyAmount > 0 and a non-null AcceptedDate had the bounty awarded on that date. But we do still need the BountyAmount column.

We will include BountyAmount in the latest export. VoteTypeId = 9 is BountyClose, so if there is a corresponding BountyAmount attribute then a bounty was awarded. It is possible for a bounty close to result in 0 in the case where the person who created the bounty accepts an answer that they posted.
