Often times a question comes along that I really want to know the answer to, but I can see that it has not received much attention yet. I can only place a bounty after some time has passed. Unfortunately, after 2 or 3 days, I often forget to return to the post and place the bounty. Can we implement a feature which alerts the user that a bounty can be placed? Something small like a "Reminder for bounty" bell which you click to be reminded via an inbox message or an email.

    $\begingroup$ If you really want to know the answer, you will not forget it in 2 or 3 days. $\endgroup$ – Jyrki Lahtonen May 27 at 5:32

    $\begingroup$ Perhaps just use a calendar app? If we add too many features to this site, it will lose its simplicity. $\endgroup$ – user400188 May 27 at 6:06

    $\begingroup$ Since were at roughly the same amount of time spent and level of engagement on math.se, I'll mention that lately I've been making a lot more use of the Bookmark function. When I see a post that I think is interesting but there is no current activity on it and I don't have anything to contribute, I bookmark it. Then about twice a week I check my bookmarks tab and revisit them. How about bookmarking your bounty-worthy posts? [Admittedly one has to check their bookmarks tab. That's a behavior change that's come about slowly, but it has happened for me.] $\endgroup$ – JonathanZ supports MonicaC May 27 at 15:09
  • $\begingroup$ @JonathanZsupportsMonicaC Bookmarking (used to be marking as a favorite) questions helps a lot. Now that I have 1231 bookmarked question I still need to do a bit of recollecting. The system does raise a flag if there is new activity on a bookmarked question, but in some cases I need to remember to dig a bit deeper! Still, it is a huge help! $\endgroup$ – Jyrki Lahtonen May 28 at 4:34

Will this help?
