Should I Send a Thank you Note When My Answer is Selected "Best"?

I always appreciate it when it happens, and I want to thank the original poster, but I don't want to intrude or have them think I'm a stalker by sending them a message. I don't expect a thank you when I select one, I appreciate them taking the time to answer.

Do you send thank you's? Do you think it's rude when you select a best answer and you're not thanked?

  • Most people don't, it seems. It's nice but not necessary.

    I think I'd send one if I had something more to say than thanks - if I wanted to get to know the person or add them to my friend's list, or if I had follow-up questions or comments.

  • I send a thank you, because that's what usually happens when I pick best answers....
    I don't think it would be intrusive or stalker-ish if you hit "reply" and just said "thank you" dont' have to go into great detail or respond to their "your welcome" if they send one back.

  • I used to thank each person that selected my answer...but I stopped because someone else asked the same question you just did and I read a bunch of other answers that said they thought it was bothersome or annoying to recieve the thankyou's,LOL.
    So, I pretty much don't send the thankyou's anymore.
    It doesnt bother me when someone thanks me though. I think its a nice gesture..but not necessary.

  • Sure why not. Anyone who gets pissed off by a thank you needs their priorities re-examined.

  • i don't

  • I try to. I may not send one for every answer chosen but I may send one to original poster thanking them if they awarded me more than one best answer.

  • I don't because I find it annoying to get messages that just say thankyou.
