Picking best answer - should you not get a 'reward' of points for doing so, would more people close their old questions

you get points for everything else
why not for picking best answer given to your question
and therefore closing it down, cleaning up the Q and A section

  • You have read my mind!!! I have been thinking the same thing lately , it does make a lot of sense!!! specially in the crazy for credit section, there are so many traders waiting to get their credits from people who just don't close them. Great idea!!!!!! pass it on to CM, or wlll they get it from this post?

  • i think that would be a good idea. I sometimes forget to pick best answer, points might be a good reminder!

  • I often forget to close a question... but what does it really matter if a question stays open????

    I just dont get why people are so hung up on closing questions... why does it bother them so????

  • I didn't even know we should be picking a best answer.

  • I agree with itsjustme1017 - I don't like to pick best answers, but since many people like the post I sometimes do so.
    Sometimes I leave them open when I would like to hear more opinions, often someone posts again later on.

  • I think it's a great idea. They already use points to get us to ask the questions, and I would close more of mine if I got points for it.
