How long do you leave your questions open?

I know I've answered some that are only open for a few minutes while I leave mine for days. What do you do?

  • Depends on the question. If I never got a good answer, I don't vote for a best answer, so that leaves it open, although I will probably never get an answer. Some questions I close in a few days, but that's rare. I finally buckle down and go through and close my questions eventually.

  • The OCD in me doesn't let them go over 2 days then I must do some housekeeping and reward others for best answer.

  • I try to leave them open for at least a few days, in hopes of getting some really good answers, want to give everyone a change to reply.

  • I have some that have been open for a year or more... Just depends on the question

  • I close most of mine almost every day. I have three opened right now that I will never close because there is no best answer.

  • 3 days at the most.

  • Not very long. And then I delete them later, especially if it is personal. I know I lose 5 points, but I think I can spare a few.

  • I'm new and only have posted one question so far. I think that the issue is very important (bullying) so I know I won't close it out for awhile!

  • I leave mine open a couple of hours, especially since I usually only post in the crazy for credits section.

  • I don't ask that many questions, so when I remember, I go back if I feel there truly is a best answer. If not, I leave it open.
