I don't mean to advertise How did 'consideration' shift to signify grounds and the act of deliberation, then inducer of a grant or promise?, and I don't know how else to ask this, but there being no answer still, I don't want the +50 bounty to expire in 12 hours and go to waste.

Thus how can I alert people who may want to try to earn the bounty?

General suggestions would be to improve the question, show the research, add a bounty etc, which I think you have already tried.

There is unfortunately no other way to attract more attention.

Sometimes, even with a bounty, a question might not grab the attention of many. Your question appears to be an example of this. Even a month and a bounty later, it has only managed to attract 61 views, as of now.

There's only then the possibility of it jumping on to the Hot Network Questions. From my experience, a question does not simply go to HNQ, the HNQ takes the question.

Let's wait.. Maybe the right answerer hasn't seen the question yet.


There’s a book that might help: Fried, Charles. Contract as Promise: A Theory of Contractual Obligations 1981

But I think the real problem here is that this is a question of changes in legal terminology, and might get more response on the law forum of stackexchange.
