accepted answer with bounty does not show up on the activity tab

I'm used to looking in my "Activity" list (in my profile, not the notification area) when I notice my rep go up after hitting the cap, to see what was accepted when. It's always been very convenient.

As noted here, this was a "bug" which has now been fixed. However, it was a bug which was particularly useful. Please could we have an alternative? The reputation part of the notification area is harder to use, IMO - in particular because on a busy day, I'm likely to have had lots of (irrelevant) votes between accepted answers.

To be honest, some feed of just acceptances - and preferably unacceptances as well, to answer another feature request - would be very useful. I also think it would be nice to show this in the public profile; it's interesting to see what answers a user has had accepted.

@balpha: Thanks. Will update the question. I wonder why it only showed up now... – Jon Skeet Mar 26 '10 at 11:06
Given that this is now tagged as a feature request for an alternative, I don't see how it's a duplicate... – Jon Skeet Mar 26 '10 at 13:59
the reputation summary probably works pretty well for most users on SO, though perhaps not for you. You have to admit that you're a bit of an outlier. I would like to see a hover over for the reputation display on the notification tabs show capped and uncapped rep separately, though. – tvanfosson Mar 26 '10 at 15:22
I'd like to second the "unacceptances" as well - it'd be nice if we could be notified in some way if someone else's answer was accepted on a question we also submitted an answer to. – Steve Haley Mar 26 '10 at 21:23

Why doesn't /recent work for you?

The current design is much more logical -- the activity tab shows your activity not the activity of others -- so it is extremely unlikely to change.

Also, your accepted answers are already shown on your answers on your user page; just order your answers by "recent" and look for the tell-tale style..

I certainly accept that it's more logical the current way - it just ends up taking me longer to work out from /recent than it did from Activity. Does ordering by "recent" on the answers page order by when they were answered or when they were accepted? If a question from 6 months ago is accepted, will it end up at the top of the answers in "Recent" sort order? I wouldn't expect that, to be honest. – Jon Skeet Mar 26 '10 at 22:59
@jon the answer to some of this stuff, moving forward, will be "we have a beta API now, and clients should build to taste." It's really tough to have a one-size-fits-all website, and you are an outlier. But in a good way! :) – Jeff Atwood Mar 26 '10 at 23:42
Yup, that makes a lot of sense. Looking forward to trying out the API when I get a little bit of time :) – Jon Skeet Mar 27 '10 at 7:34
