Congratulations to me, I receievd best response to one of the discussions I replied to. WHich triggered me to give it back to all in my UNRESOLVED discussions. Now, I come up a self resolution that I'm gonna give best response today. haha. DO YOU GIVE BEST RESPONSE TOO QUICKLY ? OR YOU JUST LEAVE YOUR DISCUSSIONS WITHOUT GIVING BEST RESPONSE.

It all depends really most times I wait a few months, because nothing is worse then giving a best response to a mediocre comment when you just might have a better response coming if people would wait more then an hour before giving best responses, I have seen this done before...

I also do the same if Im not convinced with the response, I wouldnt mind waiting for someone who can give a better view, some of my discussions that I rated yesterday was almost 2 years ago. Have a wonderful weekend mtdewgurl74 !

Obviously you deserve a whole hearted greetings because you earned a best response. For me I start a topic rarely. So, this question does not arise in my case. But I take my time to read replies and finally vote for the best response.

hi nilzerous1, I think its good to rate Best response whenever you think the one who responds have satisfied your post. Giving them as soon as possible would eliminate the tons of them in your unresoved section. Have a wonderful weekend !

hi torchablazed I found out as a newby that giving the brdst response to soon made a lot of people bypass my discussions so I wait at least a week before giving the best response as that gives all my friends and allother mylotters time to find my discussion read it and respond if they wish too.I am behind in doing my best responses to so will have to take some time out to do that very soon,.

I am also over delayed in giving those best responses hatley, some of those discussions was way back two years ago ! I hope you will also be able to find a quality time going through your discussions and rating the best response. -- HUgs --

I am somewhere in between. I say I like to wait about two weeks. I have some that have been waiting a lot longer than that, though. I think I will get them done soon. I have a lot of online stuff that I am involved in and so I forget sometimes. Good for you that you have gotten caught up. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

There are 2 year ago discussions that I give best response and it took me a lot of time just rating it, lol. Two weeks is reasonable amount of time in giving in BRs and sometime you just forget it and when you check back your unresolved discussions tons of them stock in there. Have a wonderful weekend to you too !

I usually forget about this aspect of starting discussions and leave it to worry about later. Now I probably have hundreds of discussions with no best responses, but that's a good idea.. Maybe I'll do a couple of mine today, too! (Not all, of course, I would have to be on a computer for like 30 hours straight for that). lol.

Wow, its been a while since I last saw that. Well actually, I think I had one a week or so ago.LOL Those kinds of notifications in my mail have been quite rare but each and everyone of those is deeply appreciated. When I make the discussions, I would award the best response to the first one which I think covers good points of what I was asking about. If I feel that I still need something more, I wait for a period of time before reading through everything again and making my choice. However, sometimes one discussion has a lot of excellent answers that its hard to choose just one to award. If that's the case, I just dont award the BR, with a little comment to the responses saying they made me think hard. Rule of thumb is: if there's a clear choice, then give the award to the deserving one. If many deserves the award, just give everyone a + rating.

Hi! Congratulations! To give a best response you need to check if the answer really talk about the discussion. The best reponse need make you think about the discussion and increase your knowledge about the topic! That's it! See you MyLotters!

I dont rarely go through my old discussions and do anything more then leave people replies to the comments they have left me. I always forget to pick a best response. I worry about leaving a best response and then having someone else leave a better one and then wishing I could take that best response back and give it to someone else. I think I will go through maybe 5 of my old discussions right now and leave a best response just since you brought up the idea and I dont have to much to do. It will make someone feel good that they were chosen for the best response. I get a lot of them lately :)
