  • I don't know if it's the best way, but I'll leave them open for several days. I try not to leave anything open longer than a week - the question is so buried by then nobody notices it :)

  • i usually have my answer by the end of the day, so i close it. sometimes i get an answer within 2 to 3 responses, so its closed immediately. i have one open currently, and apparently no one knows the answer.

  • I like to close mine out quickly. Just to keep them from cluttering the sections.

  • I leave it open till I get my answer. Or if it's just a fun question I leave it up for 2-3 days.

  • In a couple of days or so if no actively happens. Some never close them but it's totally the OP call when to do.  There is no set rule.

  • Usually till I get a great response. Time limit varies.

  • usually for a day, unless there are recent hits on the question.. then I'll leave it up until it starts to quiet down.

  • I try to close them the same day because after that they get buried in all the questions.
