What qualifies as a "best answer" to you?

Just you go for the one most voted up? the one that makes you laugh? the one that strikes a chord with you? How do you choose?

  • Sometimes it's the answer that is the most sincere IMO. Sometimes, it the 1 that puts a smile on my face. Sometimes it's the one the answers the question in a polite way. And other times it's the 1 that encourages others.

  • I go for the one that strikes a chord with me. I just found out how to do this today after another CafeMom-er chose an answer I gave as a 'best answer'. Pretty cool and fun! Also give the CafeMom-er that gave the 'best answer' an extra 10 credits :o)

  • It depends on what the question was . . . I get in a bind, though, when I have a lot of really good answers . . . that all deserve "best answers" . . . I try to look, then, and see who is the newest and might enjoy somer extra credits.

  • I choose by the one that relates best to me or the one where i know that they are 100% right.

  • whoever answered the question the best or if I can't find only one then usually just the first person that answered. Oh and one lady cause it was her birthday :)

  • For me, it depends on the questions. If it a serious question I choose the one I felt gave the best advice. If it's humorous, I choose the one that is the funniest and so on.

  • Sincerity, humor, best info, my mood, so much depends on the best answer award.

  • Most of the time it's the one that gives me the most information, or if it's a just for fun or WYR, the funniest.

    Answer by Dahis at 2:37 PM on Apr. 11, 2011

  • I vote for the one with the best information or if it was a "just for fun question" I vote for the one that made me laugh or maybe the first answer. So it depends...............
