Authors of posts may not want all of the benefits that come from creating a post. This operation allows authors to update properties associated with their posts/comments.

Typically, these options will accompany a comment operation in the same transaction.

As of HF17, content creators can specify beneficiaries to receive a part of their author rewards. The list of beneficiaries is specified in the extension field of the comment_options operation and is a sorted array (by account name) of account and weight pairs. The beneficiaries can only be specified once and must be specified before any votes are cast on the comment. Most apps are adding thecomment_options operation in the same transaction that creates the comment.
