Does the Team actually pay special attention to Featured questions on Meta?

At the first glance this seems like a try to buy the teams attention... Or is this just to award the best specific implementation suggesting answer for a still-vague feature-request?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • @Gnoupi I ask the bounty-setters for their motivation, not the team for their reaction – Tobias Kienzler Jul 7 '10 at 10:11
  • answers on the other question cover your question, in my opinion. – Gnoupi Jul 7 '10 at 10:43
  • Coincidentally, Tobias, when I was asking the team for their reaction, my first 4 answers were all bounty setter motivations. I think their answers cover the general scenarios (get feedback from team/community on the feature request, get attention from community for votes, get potential attention from team for action), while there will always be outliers for uncommon reasons (and thus not viable to determine every last motivation). – Grace Note Jul 7 '10 at 10:47
