It would certainly take a while for me to look through my 300+ accepted answers to find the one answer I earned a bounty for. I know I can look through my rep audit and find it, but I'd still be interested to see bounties that others have won when I look at their profiles. It would be cool if the answer list showed awarded bounties on answers in the list, something like this:

You know that for yourself, you can easily hunt down bounty winnings using your reputation audit and searching for vote code "9", aye? ♪ – Grace Note Jul 19 '10 at 14:03
@Grace: shh! yes, I knew that. I don't think I do have any awarded bounties, though - I mostly want to nosey at other people's :-) – Andy E Jul 19 '10 at 14:05
This is difficult to implement for now since multiple answers in the same question get combined into one item in that list (which is a separate discussion). I like this idea, though. I think putting the +500 on the right side after the question title would make more sense so it doesn't take up a whole column of real estate. – Jon Seigel Jul 19 '10 at 17:11
@Jon: that's something I hadn't thought about although, just like it would show combined score for multiple answers, it could show combined bounties. I had thought about having the bounty award on the right, either way works for me. – Andy E Jul 19 '10 at 17:16
@Grace: turns out I did get a bounty, quite a while ago though so I'm not surprised I forgot about it. Shouldn't I have gotten an Altruist badge for that? – Andy E Jul 19 '10 at 17:44
You get Altruist for awarding the bounty, not winning it. – Grace Note Jul 19 '10 at 17:48
@Grace: ah, the wording is a little confusing - thanks. – Andy E Jul 19 '10 at 22:16
Bounty tab is now in place with earned filter :) – Shadow Wizard Apr 9 '12 at 17:34
