Do you close your questions so people can get best answers?

I've noticed some questions have been open for months and no one is adding answers, but the authors never close them and award someone best answer.

  • I always do! It might take me a few days but I always close them. Usually I accumulate about 10 and close them all at once.

  • I go through them once in a while when I'm bored (like I just did about 6 pages of them from 2009 while waiting on laundry). I only have 20 pages of open questions now.

  • I always do on mine, I don't want them just hanging out there. I usually wait a few days, but then I close so someone can get those points, and realize that their answer was appreciated.

  • Yes. It really helps people and get rid of answers. I have no open questions.

  • I always try to award best answer 24-28 hrs after I ask

  • Yes I do

  • I try to occasionally, but sometimes I feel bad picking one out of the whole lot of nice answers. Sometimes I ask a question and I swear no one really answers the actual question and it's hard to award it!
