Since the change, I've clicked on the bounty link a couple of times, when I meant the comment link, my eyes/hand just automatically go to 'the link at the bottom'. How about putting the bounty link opposite (on the right) rather than below?

Just a thought.

Technically, this is the original... but that one can't be closed at the moment due to open bounty. Hmm. –  Pops Jun 3 '11 at 14:32
@Pop & @Cody, hahaha, checkmate :) –  Benjol Jun 4 '11 at 19:26
@Cody Gray + @Popular Demand: Actually, I was asking why the bounty button was put somewhere else in the first place. Benjol is asking to actually move it. Those are different questions, even if a single action will resolve them both. –  Billy ONeal Jun 4 '11 at 19:45
Billy still wins. His bounty is worth a lot more, and he confirms his question isn't even a feature request! :-) –  Cody Gray Jun 5 '11 at 4:35

On the right hand side seems kind of pointless to me...If you had to move it so that it wasn't near the comments button, i'd be tempted to move it above the comments onto the same vertical alignment as the user info.

I do see your point though about 'the link at the bottom' because the comment button is the link at the bottom when the bounty link isn't visible... enter image description here
