One of the reasons to place a bounty on a question is to attract attention to it. Either to get a better answer, or to get any answer at all.

So how can we draw more attention? By advertising it in our main chatroom. That is why I propose to add a "featured questions" feed to the feeds in Mos Eisley.

    Seems redundant to me tbh. Most visitors of the chatroom are the established regular users of this SE who I am sure take a look at featured tab everyday. It's not like there are a lot of featured questions (6 as of now) in any case, so there's no chance that some featured question may be left buried beneath a huge list. Reserving my vote on this however

    @KutuluMike yes, but a) you have to ask b) why have Gideon do it when there's a good feed available?

Go ahead

It can't hurt and it only adds a few extra notifications per week.

    Given the support for this answer, I've gone ahead and created the feed.

  • @amaranth I dunno why. It worked once and never again before or since.

  • @Randal'Thor - I remain firmly of the opinion that a curated feed (e.g. someone setting up a sockpuppet to post any relevant questions directly) would be just as good a solution.
