Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

In What kind of computer is being used in “Workin on ur problemz”?, the question I actually asked has been answered (V-Tech Talking Whiz Kid Mouse PRO Deluxe), but there's something else that I'd still like to know (why is there a piece of paper in front of the monitor?). (I mentioned the piece of paper before setting the bounty in a comment but not in the question)

Should I

  1. Have thought more carefully about my question before setting a bounty to it
  2. Accept the answer given, but edit the question (which'd attract fewer eyes)
  3. Hold out on awarding the bounty until the follow-on question is answered (is that fair on the bounty-hunter?)
  4. Start a new question about the paper
  5. Get a life (who cares about the paper?)

#1 and #4

They're separate questions; if you do #2, the bounty-accepted isn't going to answer the new; if you do #3, not fair to the existing bounty-hunter.

#5, is of course, not an acceptable option.
