TOPIC STARTERS, LOOK HERE - Best Response

Sweden
October 11, 2008 3:12pm CST
Hello to all of you who caught this discussion!Well, I was wondering, as I'm not much of a discussion starter, what you usually look for in a reply before you give someone 'best response'. What's the reasons? Is it because it's good, informative and long? And how long do you usually wait before you give someone 'best response'? Until you've got enough replies or maybe a day? Or do you just give it to the first one who replies to your discussion? I'm grateful for any response to this, so keep on typing. - Stardust

I am most likely to look for the one who answers the question in most detail. Or maybe someone who comes up with a unique idea. People don't always read what the other people have listed in their responses, so if it is more than one person with pretty much the same answer, then I will usually mark the first one to come up with that good response. As far as when I mark the best response, it just depends on my mood. I may mark it within the next day or so. Then again, sometimes I go back and find that I have discussions with no best response marked a month later. So there really is no method to my madness when it comes to that. What about you? What methods have you been using so far on myLot?

That's also a very good way to deal with this, kykidd. I'll keep that in my mind when I somehow need to put a best response on one of my responder. I have so far not been able to deal with such things, that's why I started this discussion, to get myself a grab around this, and I might add that this is my second discussion. So far I've been trying to give everyone who responds to my discussions a worthy comment, and perhaps rate if I got some time left on my hand. And if I some day find that encouraging, perfect, detailed respond, I'll probably give that person a best respond. I think I'd wait until I get enough responds to pick a best response. (around 5-15 responses) Thank you, dear myLottian, for responding.

Hey Stardust! I normally just select the one that says it best. The one who gave the most understandable and more effort-ed one. The person who was probably thinking about getting the best response as they were writing it is probably who deserves it.

Thanks for the reply. That's a very good solution you've got. And I agree, someone who was clear, descriptive and had a thought of being 'serious' or whatever is probably the one who deserves it the most.

When i see that there is a message where i can see that someone have put a lot of time in writing and thinking it, long and informative are of course important, and the spelling a bit too. If they have spent a lot of time to reply to us, don't they deserve a "best reponse"?

Hello, Jul14nch0. I agree with you. People who spend lots of time in making their posts informative and readable (-points to grammar-) definitely deserves some sort of positive ranking or best response. Thank you and happy myLotting!

If you ask a question about a car then you are expecting answers about a car but some people just type some gibberish. you'll probably give "best response" to someone who answered your question the way you wanted it or maybe coming up with a solution towards your question

Hi, loxion. Yes, the solution is kind of the key too, isn't it? Thank you very much for the response. Happy myLotting!
