Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

When placing a bounty on an old question that isn't one's own, it seems a bit odd to have to edit the question with a note as to why you're reopening it with a bounty. It would be nice to have an option to add a note, similar to a comment but just under the question and in the usual font size, explaining why you're adding the bounty.

This is a note about the bounty that Ian Ringrose is not placing on this question...

This is a comment which explains why I put a bounty on your question. – Won't Jun 16 '11 at 14:08
But it's only at the top of the comments because they weren't any others. – PengOne Jun 16 '11 at 15:15
This is another comment explaining how I don't care enough to further this conversation. – Won't Jun 16 '11 at 15:27

Why not edit the quesion to add a note?
