Hi! I do not give away best responses to lure friends.I just go through the content and if I find the response really good I give the rating as the best response.Initially when i got just 5-6 responses itself I used to rate it.Later I found responses still coming in and they seemed better than the one I awarded the BR.Now I have learned to wait for a while and then mark it.But I make sure i mark it as I think I should show my appreciation to those who have taken the time and effort to give a good response.But I find many people not marking their responses.I wonder why?

May be they think it is not up to the mark to mark it.

I wait for a few days to a couple of weeks to give a best response. This is because I want to make sure that all (of most at least) responses are there before I make my decision. I do not think in terms of who is writing the response but rather in terms of how it is written, as long as it seems t me to be the best then I will give it the best response.

I never wait.If a response is so striking I give it instantly.

What is a lot better response came in a few minutes later. You cannot go back and take away a best response and give it to another person, but if you wait you can be pretty sure that you will give the best response to the best one. After all isn't that what best response is about?

You tend to forget what your heart said and that ecstatic moment will be lost for ever.

Most of the time I give it to the one who deserves it the most. But, if it is too hard to make that decission, I will give it to the one between those two who replies to my responses the most. I really don't see how best response makes a difference though, do you?

Well as far as I know it gives the pleasure of giving the due appreciation and the pleasure of getting appreciated.Do we need more than that?

A little bonus in the funds would not hurt either.

I always try to be fair when giving out best responses, and only award them to the person who has given a very good, interesting and informative reply. I don't like to be biased only to award them to my best friends, if someone I don't know has given a good response then they will get the award. Using BR to lure more friends is not something I would do.

Of course, the deserving ones should be the ones to obtain the best responses.

Hi & Hello my friend, Balasri. I give away the 'Mark Best Response' for those who gave me the answer for what I wanted to know and in a very elaborative way to some good extensions that can make me more in making exploration. - - - - - - My 'Copy and Paste' - - - - - - How do I Choose a Best Response? (http://www.mylot.com/o/faq/faq8.aspx#17) - Do not select a best response right away, wait at least a week before choosing a best response. This will give myLot users plenty of time to respond to your discussion topic and will give you a variety of responses to choose from. - Read through each response and chose the response you like the most. - - - - - - 'Copy and Paste' END - - - - - - Happy Postings and Earnings, my friend Balasri. HAPPY DAPPY.

I give away the best response to deserving replies only, as I think you should work for your 'best responses'. I know, personally, I wouldn't necessarily add someone because they gave me a best response, and I wouldn't expect that from them, either. I add people whose discussions interest me.

When I hand out the Best Response to my discussions that I have started, I choose the response that I like the most that usually fits with the discussion itself. And a lot of the time, it could be handed to people that are not on my friends list as well.

I do give it only for the deserving ones. I give it to those who put the effort in responding to my post. Thanks for ur discussion.

I give the best response to the deserving ones only. It so happens that most of the time that I find my dear friends here write so beautifully and impressively and I end up finally giving best response to one of my friends' responses here. There is nothing to lure any one by awarding him/her best response.

NO, I don't give it to lure more friends. I only give it when I feel that the post pertains to the discussion and the person has given an interesting view point. Sometimes, it is a little confusing when there are quite a few people who have given good (though contrasting) viewpoints. Sometimes, it also happens after I give a BR, someone else comes along (maybe months later) and gives a better response and then I feel guilty for not waiting longer. Wish there was something MyLOt would do about that. There are also some discussions where none of the responses are worth a BR and I don't give it then.
