I rarely check the best response tab, since I am more interested in clicking the "recent" and "responded" tabs in the Mylot interface. I just did so today, and I find out I have about 8 best responses under my belt and I didn't even know it. I feel guilty for not being able to thank those that awarded my simple answers a BR, but I shall do so here. How about you guys? How do you feel when you get a best response award?

I check once in a while. About once a month, I'd say. It feels nice to know theat the person appreciated what I had to say on their topic.

It's like a feather in my cap for me realizing that, even if some my diss me for my responses, someone still appreciates my answers. Cheers~

Hi Seishrox, Brs are really a shot in the arm. They add to the enthusiasm when BR is received for a well thought out response. However, when BR is not given but someone accepts to be helpful also cheers me up. So far I have three and I too did not thank them in time because of not knowing. But I did that later on. I am not sure whether they have seen it, at all. Happy mylotting..

When I checked the inbox of my e-mail and when I saw the title of the message that my response got the Best one, I checked it out what discussion that be and then I I add comment and thank that mylotter for choosing my post as their best response. So far, I've got 5 and I'm still hoping that mylotters appreciate my post even if they don't choose it as their best response. Adding comment to my response by thanking me for responding to their discussion is fine with me and that makes me happy. So again, Thank you mylotters for choosing me your best response and also dfor appreciating my response to your discussion.

No wonder I don't see my best responses right away I didn't turn on the email setting for mylot. I do look at my best responses tab often after I realized how important it is.

It feels good that people or your friends find time reading your discussion and giving the best response they could give. It's really had a hard time here in my lot. It's not easy to earn unlike other sites. Hopefully i can used to it. Thank You.

that's what the best response is for. To let people know that their responses are helpful and are appreciated. Happy mylotting and I hope you stay long in here~

Hello seishirox! I am very flattered and happy too if I received a best response. I always thank the person because everytime I replied to a discussion, I never expected to be chosen as best because there are many native english speakers out there who can express themselves than I do. So to be chosen as the best respondent is an honor to me.

Hello there. Yeah, it's indeed very flattering considering that there are many English speakers around. However, I think it's the sense of what you are saying in the discussion that matters.

Me as a new member of MyLot got 2 BR and it really feels great and keeps me on continuing to contribute here in MyLot. the only reason i'm still here is for great time experience having to exchange opinions and expression and also meet new friends for nice conversation.

Congratulations on your 2 best responses. I agree; being marked best response gives us the boost we need to keep on participating. For me, it means that someone finds our answers helpful and sensible. Cheers~

I actually feel pretty good when I get a best response. Funny thing is I never make my goal to get a best response when ever I post in a thread but it always makes me feel good when ever I do get a best response in a thread.

Let's just continue making quality responses to every discussion we respond to. that way we are giving a big help to the one who started the discussion.

the best response really gives us a push to help more people and engage in more discussions. I think everyone should try to get the best response. By doing so, our quality of responses gets increased. We should also remember to select the best response for our discussions.

I agree. It's a pretty hard decision to choose a best response, biases aside. The best response should ideally be the one that adds flavor and interest to the discussion, and one that helps to answer the question of the topic. Cheers~

I am really pleased and I do always reply and thank people when they give me best response even if its only a thumbs up gesture. I think I have done well getting them and have had quite a lot, but then I am on here talking most of the time. I also find that close friends will give out best responses to each other. I have no objection to this of course as it might be a good thing, but on my very few started discussions I rate my best response with the best answer that suits my discussion.

Hello there. Oh, I always judge best responses on the merits of the content. No offense to my friends, but the BR always goes to a response that makes the discussion more interesting or helps to resolve the topic. Cheers and thanks for responding!

Well, I didn't even notice there is a best responses tab until I read your discussion. I knew that I've got a best response through email, and I will always check what response will get the best response. I am quite happy to get the best response, as it may indicate that my response did help or provided some useful information. ^_^
