First best response . . . After how many posts did you got you first BR?

July 8, 2007 3:18pm CST
I am going to reach 100 posts today and I am still waiting for a best response. I tried my best to be very qualitative and descriptive while posting. I think I should not feel hurry to get BR. Best response is like a reward of your efforts you put in every response. I am really very curious to know that when did you got your first response and at that time what was your rating? And most importantly how was you feeling at that time.

Hello BeachLover! You need not worry about best responses. If you make quality responses, I believe they will start coming very soon and will keep coming afterwards. You may not have been given best response because of some reasons which are not at all your fault. Many people give best responses to their friends, other give them to who has given them best response, yet there are some who give it based on who first responded or they select among the first 10 responders. There are so many ways people choose a best response and it's not always based on quality of discussion. So if you haven't got any until now, it doesn't mean that your posts were of less quality, just keep posting as you do and best responses will keep coming:-) I got my first best response probably when I was close to my 40th post. But I was doing it slowly and keep in mind that people take some time before they decide for best response. So it is quite possible that you may get 10 best responses out of your already made posts, it's just a matter of time and you will see when a discussion is resolved, i.e. a best response selected. So don't lose hope..they are coming in your way:-)

Hi kamran, Thanks for your response. I respond to discussion, which are already denoted best response. If discussion is good I post my response. I am not losing my hope and quality is the priority for me as reputation rating is also important for me. Well, let's see when my first BR reaches me.

Hey BeachLover! Congratulations on getting a star:-) Don't worry about it's color. every body get it like more or less the same. Since you are here only for 5,6 days so some of your posts are unaccounted as they won't have been rated yet. I know you will get a higher star in a couple of days:-) It will be different even tomorrow!

You know I really don't know how many posts I had by the time I got my first response. That was so long ago, but I do remember it was in my very first week of being a member. And at the beginning I only did maybe 5 responses a day. So I imagine my post number was quite low when I got my first best response.

Thanks speedy, My per day posts is around 12-15. I think that's why I would get my first BR after 100 rating.

You will get there. It takes time. It also seems like once you get one, then all of a sudden you get more and more. I think the more you respond the better chance you have at getting a best response, plus the quality of your responses get better which will also help you in achieving a best response. I do about 30 to 40 responses a day now. Best of luck!

To be honest I don't know if I've ever been rated a BR, I never looked. I just try to answer the best I can and don't prolong it. Some things need long answers, while others things are great simple. Course now you've got me wondering so once I post this I'm going to see if I've got any BR ratings.

Thanks matte, Actually I post responses very fast with good quality. So, I think I would get my first best response shortly after reaching 100 rating ( I hope I get blue star)

I've been here for 6 months already and in as much as I tried to rack my brain and think of the time when I received my first best response, I really can't remember it anymore. I'm not even counting how many best responses I had received until now. Nevertheless, I appreciate the posters who awarded best responses to me. In a way, it can help you stay motivated.

I honestly don't know because it was a couple weeks before I even knew about it and that I could check. I still have a hard time keeping up with it and don't like giving best responses because most times all of the responses I get are great. I've not been on myLot much the last month but just a little heads up you will most likely be getting a BR from me eventually because I take turns with my friends unless someone not on my friends list gives a really outstanding response. I just haven't posted many discussions lately.

By my 100th post, i think i had about 10 best responses, you just need to post quality discussions and you get the best responses.Some could have humour-others could simply be well laid out facts based on knowledge, some best responses a merely a product of wit-if you post quality content, am sure you will get a best response very soon! It is indeed a reward to receive best response, but you dont need worry about it unnecessarily for now because it will just come naturally.
