Marked Best Responsed
May 11, 2007 11:00am CST
People generally feel happy when marked the best. While I was marking my best responds, I noticed some discussions had one or two responds, so I thought how would you feel if you were marked the best response of two replies. Or you were marked the best response because you were the only one who gave the response? Thank you for your insights about this.

I dont think I have had a discussion with only two comments but if I did, i think I would still choose a best response. I have been having trouble with my best resposes going back to unsolved discussions. I have had to do many of them over and dont know why. Good luck with your discussions

Yeah, it is always happiness on one's end to be selected as the best response above all. It is a great honor and privileged to be selected on that standing because that means that you really appreciate his/her response and so that's a reward. If you have just two replies, you still have can choose in between them the best one. But well, it is always the best thing if you have lots of replies in it and so you have all the qualities of posts as alternative. Thank you for your nice topic.

I have got many best responses from discussions where only I have responded. I have been the only responder from over 93000 memebers. So I feel really proud to be the only one. Some are complex mathematical discussions. So others not responding is because they prefer basic discussions. Once in my country, there was an interview for a job in the middle east. The job was "Re-insurance accounting technician". Only one person could be interviewed and he got the job. That is because he was the only one in Sri Lanka suitable for the job.

For me, I do not bother so much as long as I got the best response! LoL. Because, some discussion is really tough to tackle and being the only one who are able to answer to it should qualify for the best response! And being the best response among 2 respondents, it's also nothing wrong about it. Because, you might just be 'better' than the other respondent. Besides, the discussion response will grow over time when more people read about it.

Well, I haven't experienced getting "best response" from only 1 or 2 responses but I have rewarded best responses in such cases. I select "best response" based on how my post is responded to. For example, I asked the question "Should Prince Harry Serve in Iraq" and only got one response. Since the person who responded seemed to give her answer some thought, I rewarded her with "best response". If her answer had been a "one-liner", for example, I wouldn't have rewarded any "best response".

I think the best response is only fair to be given to the person who deserves to receive it. Not because it is the only respond in a discussion, we should give it to him. However, I have my own exception in this case. If I start a discussion and nobody answered it in a very long period of time, then suddenly somebody responded to it and gave a reasonable reply and it is in the acceptable quality, I would mark him or her respond as my best respond because I want to show my appreciation to the person for having some time responding to my unpopular discussion.
