Line breaks/paragraphs for bounty text

I have just offered a bounty on Bounty-like facility for rewarding excellent questions, in which I gave a rather detailed reason for the bounty.

I formatted my reason with paragraph breaks for readability, which I especially thought would work because of the long (2500?) character limit and because the return key did not automatically submit the form.

However whilst the HTML still contains the newlines that I entered, they have not been converted to paragraph breaks; was this intentional, or is it an oversight?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • @Arjan: Thanks for that link. I have removed my final paragraph and updated the title to keep the question focused on paragraph breaks, as I don't think that's addressed in the other question. – eggyal Jun 26 '12 at 6:12
  • In the other post the dev said "using the same format as we allow for comments" - and in comments we don't have paragraphs. :) – Shadow The Dragon Wizard Jun 26 '12 at 6:14

    Still a dupe: using the same format as we allow for comments. Hence, no line breaks. – Arjan Jun 26 '12 at 6:14

    @ShaWizDowArd: True. But then, in comments hitting the return key causes the comment to be submitted; and comments are restricted to being much shorter! Perhaps paragraph breaks should be allowed in bounty reasons, even if they are currently not by design? – eggyal Jun 26 '12 at 6:15
  • Maybe so, in this case you might try and ask for a feature request. :) – Shadow The Dragon Wizard Jun 26 '12 at 6:18
  • @Arjan nice, didn't see this one before. – Shadow The Dragon Wizard Jun 26 '12 at 6:22
