On one SE site I'm often in a situation where I've just started a
+100 bounty. The
-100 deduction stops those green and red
-5notifications due to votes on my posts from appearing in the top bar until the bounty is "paid off".
I understand the underlying arithmetic, but I'm asking about the reason that those really helpful feedback indicators are inhibited, which means that I may miss an issue that needs quick attention.
Is this intentional, or just a bi-product of the current implementation? Since bounty-starting is usually infrequent, it may not impact most people much, but I miss them when I'm in my "bounty-deficit" periods.
There are other ways to view recent rep changes of course on one's activity page for example. But I'm just curious if the inhibition of the notifications is intentional and has a purpose or not.
note: display seems to be truncated at
-50 at the bottom.
