This struck me as rather odd. The Bounties section of any given profile, for any of the three tabs (active, offered and earned), contains a list of post links with the amount of rep of the bounty in question. It also has a tagline that indicates, as far as I can tell, the same 'activity' link that's on the front page.

enter image description here

I find this a weird place for such a link. If A awarded B a bounty, I'm not really that interested in whether C or D edited their answer later on. I'm more interested in when the bounty was awarded and links to B (resp. A) on A (resp. B)'s profile. (To the extent I'm interested in anything on that row, that is.)

Is there some specific rationale for this? Or is this just standard code for question lookup?

  • $\begingroup$ Had a brief look but I'll happily stand corrected if I missed it. This is weirdly inconsistent with the current profile page. $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 2, 2015 at 17:02
  • $\begingroup$ That post and resolution also didn't seem to be the same. I mean, I don't understand how the resolution addressed the OP request or issue. Nothing about this makes sense anymore $\endgroup$
