Back in the day, featuring your question was as simple as ticking a box as you finalized your question and I did it quite a lot. Now, you have to contact GaG, send them a link to your question, send them your billing address and t-shirt size - no kidding! Everything's pretty confusing if I'm honest, even redeeming is complicated. It was easy to donate to charities with your xPer points but now that doesn't seem possible. I don't like how they've changed the process of featuring questions and redeeming xPer.
I don't see why. It's a waste of points, I'd rather just save for the gift card. Also just because a question is featured doesn't mean it'll get a lot of opinions. If it's a shitty question people will avoid it reguardless of whether or not its featured. Ironically the questions that seem to get the most opinions are ones that WEREN'T featured. Complete waste of points in my opinion.
No. I don't necessarily need a crazy amount of answers. Also, I never even notice the featured questions because they look like ads to me. They look so different from the regular questions so I just ignore them.
