  • depends on what I asked. If it was for a reference then as soon as I get the answer. If it's opinion a little longer. Sometimes I never select a ba in those because there just isn't one. Fun questions I leave up a day or 2.

  • It depends on the question for me.

    If it is a specific question like "How do you..." and someone answers it then I close it. If it is just for fun I will leave it open until I don't feel like it is high enough on the list any longer to be found and answered. For example I will wait until I have no activity for an hour or so. :)

  • Depends on how heated the question gets or if it dies and gets bumped to page 3. Once it hits page 3, it's pretty much over, and I close it. :o)

  • It depends on what the question is and how many responses I'm getting. In some subjects, you may get answers for a week, in others, after a couple hours, they're dead. I generally look in after a couple days.
