Sparked by a chat discussion about this question, I think we should think of a way to put some order to bounty information.
What information is interesting?
Sometimes, one would like to include information as to what is expected from an answer for it to gain a bounty, or state reasons for the bounty, or announce a bounty yet to come (which just can't be placed at that point).
All of these are valuable information when "advertising" a bounty.
- Should we allow such advertisements about bounties, and to what extent?
- Where should this information be put, and how should it be indicated?
What I'd like to see here is a clear way in which we should deal with such meta-information within the Q&A, while it has nothing to do with the question itself - even if that way is just "leave it be".
