Do you use Answers more because there is immediate 'results' out of it rather than in a group?

and by "Results" I mean credits of course! lol, I just answered something in a group and didn't see the little "you have earned 3 credits" thing at the top and got all bummed out :P

  • Answers is just more fun, period. I tried Groups, and quickly got bored for one reason or another...

  • I like it because there are all kinds of people in here, so you get a bunch of different opionons, don't get me wrong I love my favorite group, but if I want to ask something fun, or a food question, it is most of the time "off topic" KWIM?

  • I like questions because you get instant gratification. I can get an answers in 30 minuets or less rather than 3-5 days. The points have no motive for me. Plus answers, when it get silly, is like a big party. We all chat and have fun together and there is no lag time in responses plus it is easy to follow.

  • i probably like answers best because its where i came to first when i joined CM. i belong to a few groups but rarely frequent them. the credits thing is meaningless to me so its definitely not that... must be the atmosphere! ;)

  • I would guess variety, quick responses and the ability help a lot faster.

  • I find groups to be kind of clique-y. Plus I'm too lazy to find a font for my responses. I guess some would say that same logic applies to Answers when they stir up drama about the supposed "elite"

  • I couldn't tell you the last time I went to a group on my list. I like this format much better. I like the variety of topics & the instant responses. I also enjoy the comradery.  :)

  • Fuckall to do with credits. Answers has a better response time, period. Groups are one extreme or another - dead for days or so busy any thread you try to read is bumped back to page 4 by the time you get to the end, so don't bother looking for new answers.

  • I glance at mine on occassion but mostly it is that the answers general apear more quickly and are more spunky
