How often do you

Close a question without picking a best answer. I just closed my first one, without picking a best answer.... It was tough! Not that I didn't agree with everyone, but most were being very bashy... Not towards me, but towards the others....

  • OMG! I just did that today for the 1st time also. I felt kind of bad cuz someone could earn points. I felt nobody really GOT the question or were just ignorant to my situation.

  • Yep I do it all the time lol...if it's just like a "would you rather" type question or something like that...there are only 2 answer options so how could one be best? LOL

  • I don't close my questions very often anyway. I think I just forget about it since it's not one of those things on your daily points checklist. lol

  • I don't think you can. I usually just pick the answer the sucks the least and give them the best answer vote to close it.

  • Not often, but that's due to the fact that I forget to choose a best answer or close it. I need to start doing that lol

    Answer by PANZONSMOM at 2:01 PM on May. 3, 2011

  • I always try to choose a best answer, I don't do it 100% of the time though.

  • A few times. Like one question got one answer, and it wasn't a good one. It was "who cares?". Clearly, that's not best answer material.

  • I usually don't close them at all, unless someone comes in and does a serious hijacking to the point it's not worth saving. In those cases I still try to pick something for a best answer, unless the only real posts are from the troll. In that case, it's just as easy to delete it and take their attention away.

  • If I find a best answer, I will award it. If not then I leave the question open.
