On a long question, where the bounty could be used to encourage people to invest time learning about the problem (like this question), the bounty message being located at the end of the question is less than optimal. If the bounty message displayed at the top in addition to or instead of at the bottom of the question it might encourage responses for questions that otherwise might get ignored due to length. I understand that this doesn't apply if someone is specifically looking to answer bounty questions, but not every person who sees the question may have that intent.
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
I always felt it should be right after the question, before/after the tags and asker box, and definitely above the comments. Below the comments, as it is today, seems too far down, specially when I want to check when a bounty expires.
It is also possible to add that blue
Is this really needed when the bounty is displayed before the question title in the question list?
