When giving the best response mark you go for content quality or content volume?

Hello people! I had some unresolved discussion so i went over it and rewarded the best response mark. There was a discussion with many answers, and i didn t had the right time to analyze them all in order to give a proper best response, so i just tried to find the longest one and gave him the mark... Do you thing it's fair to do what i did? what are you aiming at when giving this mark?

I award my best response based on the quality of the content, not quantity. One can just give a solution to your problem in just one line.

I always choose a good quality when selecting a best response to my posted discussions. An answer that directly point what I am asking or what my discussion is all about usually received my "best response".

I think it would have been fair to read people's answers and then choose the best remark. A person can say so many things and not make any sense. I've had a couple of discussions where some of the answers I've gotten are waaaay off the mark. So it's better to go for content quality. Doesn't necessarily have to be a novel, as long as the answer is something that you yourself can relate to.

If I didn't have the time to go through all of them then I wouldn't go through my unresolved discussions and choose a best response. Sometimes the quantity can be a whole load of rubbish, but 4-5 lines could really be helpful. I always read all the comments. So quality really. Next time try read the responses from the discussion.

of course i always go for the content quality. what would do to a response that has the content volume but doesnt make sense at all. for me, it doesnt matter how long the response be as long as the thought is there and it relates to the discussion. just like this one. i dont even know if making sense at all. haha. anyway happy mylotting!

For the best response, usually I go for the response that has a long post and quite makes sense on the topic of my discussion.

I go for quality, not quantity. It's okay if the response is long if it is a good answer to the discussion. I love getting best responses and try to really think about what I am saying, so I would like the discussion starter to do the same for me. I also like to check the little plus sign by the comments of people that respond. It just seems like a nice thing to do!

I like quality better than quantity. But I would also like it to be a little lengthy with good examples. I know when I was taking Algebra 193 in college....YUCK!!! My teacher he would give you a 100 for just turning it in & more points for correct answers, which I loved because I worked so very hard in this class & barely passed. I completed all the homework assignments & was there everyday. I never missed a class & some of the students that missed days made straight A's. So I was glad that he gave extra points. He said he realized there was older students in class who had been out of school for a long time & I was one of them, LOL!!! And I needed all the help I could get. I am not dumb or anything & when I was in school math, history & science was all my favorite classes. But yes I love quality & quantity too, LMAO!!!!

Hi volkus...I only go by quality. I read every comment because that's what I would want someone to do for me.

I have two criterions for a good response: the content's coherence and the contructivity of ideas. I don't appreciate a reply too long but few of new things or too blow-to-blow, i.e the author repeats useful but obvious and too well known facts, or tries to explain from A to Z everything, it's like that he(she) insults readers' intelligence. For the contructivity, I vote for the most persuasive viewpoint, no matter how it's different from, or even against the mine.

i'd rather choose to have a better answer or remark, than have so many unsuseful comments/reactions. everybody will be benefited with the answer and i will make sense.. the discussion will be very productive and useful..
