What happends to a question if you dont ever pick best answer?

Ive been asking some questions on here & some of them are questions you really can't pick a "best answer" for.What happends after a while, will the question always be open or will Cafemom finally close it???

  • 1. It will sit there (and now that people want points they may hunt you down to close your question! haha).... Nothing more..
    2. You can choose to "Close this question" (but seriously. give someone the points instead!)
    3. Even if there is not a "BEST".. choose anyone as "best answer".. the first person, last person... it doesnt matter :) Personally I hate having "Open Questions" looming around my "open questions" box.. lol.. so i try to close questions within a week of asking.

  • lol, no one goes back and checks! and I don't close things the same day I open them.. wait a couple of days, close them out, and no one will bug you.

  • Think sits just sits there. When first started cafemom 3 years ago I didnt even know about closing and they were still open when I realized it almost a year later.

  • it just languishes out there...forever. Why don't you just pick the person who got the most voteups... cm kind of hoped the vote ups would help decide these kinds of q's.

  • I think it just sits there indefinitely. I've seen questions from years before that were still open.

  • Well see I dont want to pick a best answer, for like the question whats your favorite pet? or whats your favorite part about being a mom... I noticed that some women can get nasty if you dont pick their answer... & I dont want to upset anyone.

  • i think it just sits there and gradually gets bumped further down the list into the realm of forgotten about old questions. :)

    I always try to shut mine down after about 1-2 days of inactivity with a Best Answer choice (or take the 5 point loss and delete it) Answering 2 questions gets those points back.
