Do you award best answers?

I always try to go back a day or two after I post my questions and award a Best Answer. It closes your question and gives that person 10 extra points. It's a nice thing to do and it helps people get to the next level sooner.

  • well, it depends on the question. some questions i posted nobody really answered (like they would say o i wanted to try that too.... try it and see how it goes!), so i'm not going to give a best answer for that lol. i usually do though, and if it's something that was really important or extra helpful for me i write an email too.

  • Always!

  • Yes, always. I feel that for me that leaving questions open is something unfinished. :)

  • I really try to. I have a few that are still opened. I need to close them out though :)

  • I either close all my questions by selecting best answer or I will delete my question completely. It just depends on the question, how long it's been up, and the if I liked any of the answers. If I don't get any good answers I will just delete my question. Or if it was a question that really can't have a best answer because it was inquiring about current milk prices in your area then I delete it. This was my behavior prior to the whole stupid point system and this is my behavior now.... don't care about the stupid points and of course, in my opinion, it's been made worst with the dumb badges. I loath the pop ups telling me I got this badge or that badge or made it to this level!

  • having open question bugs me. I will choose a best answer or delete a question that didn't really get one.
