How long do I leave a Question "open" before selecting a Best Answer and closing it?

I was just wondering what's a good or average time frame for this.

I want to give people enough time to see it ,so they have an opportunity to Answer but don't want to wait too long or it gets really hard to go through all of the answers-IMO.

On average, what would you say is a good amount of time to leave your question open?

  • However long you wish. Some people do not even close questions.

  • Depending on the response you are getting, a couple days to a week is sufficient. I have forgotten to close questions out and closed them a year later.
