What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

The "featured" tab currently lists questions with open bounties, sorted by the time left until the bounty expires. Could we also add the ability to sort by largest bounty? Sometimes I'm looking for best bang for my buck, and there are so many open bounties on SO that it fills more than one page.

We recently changed the featured page to give larger bounties a higher sort (and the larger the bounty, the stronger the effect) as I mentioned here:

However, for the last 24 hours, the sort order reverts to strictly descending time of expiration, ala eBay.

thanks, but i'm not sure how much this helps on stack overflow, where there are 7 pages of bounties, so approximately the whole first page is filled with bounties expiring in <24 hours –  Kip Oct 3 '11 at 20:24

Agreed with @Kip... a question with a bounty of 500 rep should definitely show up on the top of the list. Always. –  Steve Oct 28 '11 at 18:55
