Concerning other's response, do you often give them your rate and mark as best response? What case will you do that? Why? I always give me careful response to mylotters' discussion. Why didn't I get one best response? Is there anything wrong?

Well considering that you have just 75 posts yet it's not bad. Not everyone is giving best responses to their discussions. You just gonna have to keep posting more posts and elaborate it, so they can see you put all you effort on it. Goodluck!

I know the best is always for one person. And I think it has nothing to with the number of our posts but depends on the quality of our posts. In other words, it depends on whether you reply to others' question using your heart. But I did, unfortunately, I didn't get the best. what's going on.

Different people have different perception of what's best. You may think you have given a good answer, but the poster of the topic might have a different feeling about it. It's just different thinking and viewpoint after all, do not lose sleep over it.

Hi sirzhang, In mylot here, patience is the key, you must wait till 100 before you can see your reputation rating, 200 before you can use emoticons and 500 before the cut and paste function is available. All of us have been through the same stage. Sometimes we post topics that hardly get any response, sometimes our discussions got deleted and sometimes we don't get any best responses. It's all part and parcel of our experience here. As advised by above, continue to post good discussions and one day, voila, there it is!

Sometimes I forget to go back and mark best responses. I've gotten best response before though. If I see a post that already has a lot of responses I usually do not put a ton of effort into my response. But if I see one with 5 or less posts or I have something really really good to say then I will put more effort into it. Sometimes I have written almost a page explaining something of my opinion or giving advice to someone. Whether they think it is the best answer or not is not really the reason I write it, it is just to share my ideas because I know other posters will read my response as well as the person who asked the question. As for you getting best response you should make sure your response is detailed, written clearly, understandable, and addresses the topic. A few sentences usually does not get best response, but a well thought-out paragraph that fully covers what you are trying to get across to the person who asked the question may have a better chance of getting best response. It is all up to the asker. I would not focus too much on trying to get best response, just give an adequate response and they will choose. I am pretty sure many people forget to go back and choose a best response for their questions.

Well for one thing you are a relatively new member, I still have responses going back 4 or 5 weeks that I have not yet given a 'best response' to as I like to leave it as long as possible. There is no problem with not being given a Best Response, don't worry about it!
