Controlling questions ?

Ok, so when I post a question, I feel its up to me to monitor it and make sure it doesn't get out of hand. If I think people are being too judgmental of others or say rude things if they disagree with someone else, I closed the question or delete it. I also never let the question get over 25 answers or go past 2 days. I know cafemom is suppose to do that, but they have so many others to do and can overlook things easily bc they are so busy. ya know ?? Does anyone else do this ??

  • no i figure the questions just die off somewhere in cafemom land after a day or two..if i find an answer has some kind of wow factor to it then i may choose to give it best answer.

  • No, I am too busy. I just pick best answer when I get tired of getting activity messages.

  • Ilovemypaulie - thanks so much!! I'm trying to get better. I hate this whole recovering process. lol yes it can get addicting and fun sometimes, lol there's not many people i communicate with on here though bc we seem to talk a few times than it just quits. LOL so I spend most of my time on here answering and posting questions. LOL

  • I wait until the responses die down and then close them (if I remember to). Sometimes I leave mine open if I haven't had a satisfacotry response. They're still searchable :)

  • amberpaiz- Yeah, I like when people share their opinions even if they are different than mine, but when people say rude things and stuff, that's what I put a stop to because I'm not into judging people at all. People don't understand that sharing your opinion and just being rude are two different things. ya know ??

  • I choose a best answer when I stop getting answers. Some questions, like one I had about cleaning, I keep open in hopes of more suggestions.

    Every week or so, I go into my open questions to see if there is anything to close out.

    But, I don't think I've ever had any mean responses, so I haven't had to do anything there.

  • Somedays I spend all my computer time just cleaning up and closing my open questions. I try to keep them to not more than 3 pages. I had no idea that Cafemom monitored this.
