For a while now, most bounties on our site are rewards for existing answers. As a consequence, it's pretty hard to spot any bounty that would fall into the 'Draw attention' or 'Bonus / Side challenge' categories -- and we have to open each and every entry to figure it out. I've to admit that I personally don't really pay attention to the bounty list anymore because of that.
Ideally, I think SE should display the bounty reason on the bounty list. But since they don't, should we include this information by ourselves?
We may either:
- Add temporary tags such as
bounty-rewardto the challenge. But I don't really like the idea of creating new tags for this specific purpose.
- Temporarily edit the title of the challenge to include the bounty reason, e.g.
Some great challenge [REWARD]or
[REWARD] Some great challenge.
Either way, this would be some extra work for either the bounty owner (assuming that they're aware of this new custom) and/or the moderators if the owner is not doing it the right way.
