bounty filter box

Not only can't I quite make sense of showing only bountied questions without bounty, de-selecting does not seem to have any effect either…

    Did you press the apply filter button? Otherwise nothing gets changed. – Luuklag Oct 13 '20 at 12:26
  • Now you can ask for bounties that don't end soon. – Mast Oct 14 '20 at 9:04
  • @Mast I don't understand. What are you telling me? – Adám Oct 14 '20 at 9:47
  • You were asking what the box did. I told you what the box did. The box is for filtering (previously) bountied questions regardless of whether they expire soon or are already expired, the 'sorted by' radiobutton is only for sorting. 'Has bounty' should actually be called 'has ever had one or more bounties of which at least 1 was awarded' IIUC. – Mast Oct 14 '20 at 10:17
  • @Mast Well, this post is on the bounty list when "Has bounty" is selected, even though it has never had one or more bounties of which at least 1 was awarded, so I don't think your understanding is correct. – Adám Oct 14 '20 at 10:34
  • Yes, I said that wrong. Should've been 'has ever had one or more bounties of which at least 1 was awarded or currently has active bounty'. Naturally. – Mast Oct 14 '20 at 11:27
  • @Mast Right, which then comes back to what that box does on the "bountied" tab where obviously all listed posts have an active bounty. – Adám Oct 14 '20 at 11:51
  • So the real question is how that tab works. Since you move away from that tab the moment you use a filter. – Mast Oct 14 '20 at 11:54

Filters are independent of tabs, which is a good design choice to make storing and choosing filters independent of tab as well, so it does nothing, but it's still logical for it to be there.
