The post notices for bounties look broken on all 4 currently featured MSE questions (to me):

Update: Meta has been reverted to master. We'll be at the drawing board figuring out how to fix this if anyone needs us.

Thanks for the report - we'll remedy this in a bit. For context: we're testing, specifically on meta (and only for half the users - 1/2 servers), a huge code change on our path to .NET Core. It looks like @helper feeds into our localization markdown renderer aren't being detected as already-encoded due to the massive type changes we're having to make since IHtmlString, HtmlString (System.Web), and MvcHtmlString all aren't in the new world.

There are likely a few other instances of this across the site happening for the same reason. We're going to leave this build up for a bit, get more feedback, and revert back to master while we fix the things found today.
