I have started bounty offering 200 points of my hardly earned reputation ;-)

iPhone OpenGL ES 2.0 blending with Cocos2D gives unexpected results

All I want is the question to be answered but the question is quite specific (not widely applicable). The natural choice for me was: "Draw attention". Is this the good choice in this situation? I was also considering "Authoritative reference needed" because of the nature of the question.

What are the differences (up or downsidess, if any) between those 2 options?

The difference is in what you want the people answering and trying to get the bounty to focus on.

Do you simply want more answers? - use Draw attention.

Do you need authoritative references? use Authoritative reference needed.

Whatever you choose, the system treats the same way - it is just displaying a different message as the bounty message.

  • Suppose it helps for the backend as well, in some regard. Could SE Staff query/cross-reference how many people are posting bounties for different reasons? This may be usable to evaluate the effectiveness of the way it works. – Dan Hanly Sep 16 '13 at 12:13
  • @danielhanly.com the bounty reason is not kept anywhere as far as I know, and is lost for good after the bounty is over. Oded, is this true? – Shadow Keeps Social Distance Sep 16 '13 at 12:37
  • If that is the case, it'd be a shame... though, I'm one of these people that loves statistics and data. – Dan Hanly Sep 16 '13 at 12:49

    @ShaWizDowArd - We do keep it. Mods can see which one was selected in the post timeline. – Oded Sep 16 '13 at 12:54

    Nice, good to know! @danielhanly see Oded's above response. :) – Shadow Keeps Social Distance Sep 16 '13 at 12:56
  • Oded, why do you think that "Draw attention" means "want more answers" when the description for this reason is "This question has not received enough attention" (which I think is quite vague)? – Tyson Williams Jan 19 '14 at 23:54
