Do you always mark the best response?

When you have a discussion in which you have 3 responses, let's say! And 2 weeks have passed and you are certain that noone will give you one more answer... Do you select a best response from the available ones, even if none of them seems right...I am saying that no response has been sufficiently sustained, for instance. Do you give the prize or just let the discussion "unresolved"?

I always mark best response but I wait AT LEAST 3 weeks before I do so. I like to give everyone an opportunity to respond to discussions. Some people aren't on here every day, and new people are joining all the time. I have two unresolved discussions from months ago. There are only one or two responses and they are totally NOT responses, so I let them go unmarked. I am more concerned in giving the best mark to someone deserving of it than giving them away just for the sake of doing it. That is why I wait 3 weeks. Some people give best response marks within a couple of hours of starting the discussion. That doesn't give much time for others to respond.

I agree with you...I tend to do the same...I have some discussions which do not really satisfy me, I mean the answers...and I was thinking to just put the most interesting....but i'll wait a little longer... Thank you!

No I don't always mark it. I just do it once in a while. I try to do it all the time if I can. But yeah that is just part of the fun of mylot I think.

I give 3-5 days and if I don't have a lot of responses I just choose from what is there. I appreciate everyone who takes the time to comment so if even only 3 people comment me they still took their time to read my discussion so one of them deserves to be rewarded for their time.

I really never knew much about this feature, and have only just started to mark a few best responses. I am trying to work at going back to pick a few.

I do try to always resolve my discussions, but then again for most of my discussions there is no right answer, I usually give the best response to the person that provoked the most debate, or thought.

I don't hold onto unresolved discussions for more than one week, and I won't give out a best response with less than a day of replies. I find that it's rare for a discussion to pick back up again after a few days have passed, so I will choose best response from the replies that discussion has generated.

Maybe it's childish...but the ones who responded are really waiting to not be ignored, and being chosen if their anwer is the best. It'a a prize for them...and sometimes it is woth more than the money it generates.
