do you still respond to discussions though the starter alreadt chose the best response? homestly, when i see a discussion where a bes-response is already flashing, it kinda makes me lose the will to respond but i really try to respond well because if i know i can help, then i would because i know that starters still check out their discussions thoguh it is already resolved. how about you?

I don't mark my best responses until I'm quite sure all the responses are in. I leave it until it has been quiet and free from response for at least one to two weeks before I give best response. It doesn't really worry me when I go to a discussion with best response already marked. Nothing lost... you still earn by posting your response... all I ask is an acknowledgement from the poster of the discussion. Brightest Blessings.

It depends on the topic. If its an uncommon one, I'll respond, but many times the topic was started by someone else. I get a kick out of when a best response is chosen when there was one or two inputs moments after the topic was started. Normally, I try to add to a topic that hasn't had too many responses and don't really look at the best response.

i respond to the topics that interest me, even if a "best response" has already been chosen by the person who posted the discussion. i do not really go by whether or not i get my ego stroked by getting a "pencil" but how i am able to "unload" my feelings that have been triggered by the discussion. if the topic resonates with my experience, i jump right in and share my two cents' worth, whether or not i'm first in to respond or a janey-come-lately! :-0

Even when a discussion has already chosen a best response, I still respond to it if the discussion is really worth responding and of my interest. If I have chosen best response for all my discussion and somebody still give their response, I still go back and rate their responses.
