How do you pick 'best answer'?

When I want to close a question and I get several that are really great, I look at the number of points or levels the Mom has. The best answer with the lowest number, I give them the best answer to help their points. How do you pick the best answer?

  • I choose the one that I feel is really the best. If I can't decide, I look at the thumbs up/down and let others feelings of what is best help me make the final decision. I don't look at points, because they don't have anything to do with that particular question or answer.

  • I mark it accordingly. If someones advice is the best, then I mark it best. Or if I am still unsure I look at how many thumbs up or downs everyone has. GL!

  • I pick it based on who I feel deserves the best answer and has been the biggest help. I don't consider points or anything like that.

  • if a few are great, i do look to see who may need to get up there in points but usually it is one of the good ones that stands out, maybe makes me laugh a little even on serious questions

  • I try and chose the member on the lowest level to help them out, if their advice was good.

  • and if i can not still decide i do also see if others did more thumbs up on any
    but sometimes thumbs ups are just the first few answers, so can not always use as a reference to what others think

  • I try to give best answer to the person who answered the question best. No brainer I know. Often though a question can go off on a tangent in answers. So I give it to the person best answered the question itself. I don't pay any attention to points or levels.
