Placing a bounty on a question changes its last activity timestamp and bumps it to the front page, the same as posting a new answer or editing the question or one of its answers.

It would be nice to be notified when someone else is assigning a bounty on one of your own questions - it might be just a notification in the brand new notification tab of the StackExchange™ MultiCollider SuperDropdown™ instead of a full inbox message.

  • Voting not to close as a duplicate. This question asks to notify for questions you've asked; the other for questions you've asked or answered. IMO these are related but slightly different feature-requests. Commented Jul 14, 2015 at 13:50
  • @S.L.Barth not different enough to justify both being open IMO, used self hammer to close. Commented Jul 14, 2015 at 13:52

I'd like to propose an addendum: With the notification, also display a list of your questions with bounties (active or inactive) in a tab along side the other bounty tabs on your user profile.

With this in place, I'd expect to see something like:

| Active | Offered | Earned | My Questions |
