Hi MyLotters, As the topic suggests,it's about being partial while choosing the best response.Do you choose your best response according to the quality of writing or you choose somebody who is your best friend? I may not be able to reply you immediately due to workload but I'll rate all positive. Thanks, Happy MyLotting!!

Hi yoursjannat, I'm glad you ask this question (I'll mention my reason later). I choose the Best Response depending on the question being asked - which is most appropriate, and which one do I think best. Yes, I am a little bit partial to my friends in a way that if I think there are more than one responses which deserves a BR, I will give it to my friend. The reason I'm glad you ask this question is because many members give out BR too quickly, and some members give it to their friends just because. This is just my opinion, of course. The response which I think deserves a BR may not be, for the discussion starter. But then, many times I feel that a BR is given to a friend for no other reason other than the fact that they are friends and they responded. MyLot has advised us that a BR should be given after a certain period has elapsed (7 days, I think). That is to give all members a chance to read and respond to a discussion. Not every member log in everyday (like I do). There are members who log in only once a week or may be even less. And it is of my opinion that if a BR is already given, it sort of discourages other members to respond. It's like, 'Well, BR is already chosen, so the question is already answered and this discussion don't need my input' sort of thinking.

hi zralte, It's very difficult to spell someone's name who stays at Jaipur,India,my country.I'd like to know the name or at least an Indian made-easy name. The point of choosing among the friends when there is a number of deserving BR is very striking! Yes,we shouldn't choose best response within a very short period.I've never done before.Even sometimes I do it very late. And finally thanks for reminding all them who are responding to this discussion about the advise of MyLot. Thanks for commenting, Happy MyLotting!!

I am indeed a mystery. If you see me, you would not think I am Indian. I am from the North East India and look more Eastern (by that, I mean Mongoloid, like Chinese, Korean, etc.) I've been living in Jaipur for more than 5 years now. There are still some of my discussion which I still haven't chose BR. This reminds me that I have to go back to those and put closure to them. Most are about a month old now.
