Can you tell me how long do you wait for response before you decide the best one? I mean, there are a lot of interesting discussion that ended too soon and there are many unresolved discussion with a lot of response. Thank you.

I wait 2 weeks if the discussion doesn't die by then I will wait till it does, but usually by the end of 2 weeks I will decide on a best response.

That's a good idea. Two weeks or more if the discussion still receive a response. After the last response in a discussion that have been started two weeks ago, how long do you wait? A day or two?

about a week from the last response. that way I give anyone else more time before deciding whose answer provided me with information I asked for. Even if I liked it or not, it would be only fair ^^

I just wait 2 days. Then after I read all the respond I will decide my best respond and rate it. I know that we must give this mark best respond. because to show the respondent that we are stay active and read their respond so hopefully they will respond to our new discussion.

Let say someone is busy with his work so he just log to my lot only twice a week (Sunday and let say Wednesday). If your discussion start in Monday, by the time he log to mylot on Wednesday, your discussion already have a conclusion. He so interesting to join your discussion, but you already pick the best answer, he just lost his opportunity to receive your best response as he have a great solution in his mind. Don't you think two days a bit too soon?

At least a week or if my need for an answer is urgent, as soon as someone gives me what I need then I mark it as best response - like when I asked about Account details on an ATM card and somebody responded in a few minutes, he received best response right away. Thanks for the response on my discussion!
