24 Hours minimum before you can choose Best Response.

I just received a best response after a discussion was only one hour old. That's not fair to those that are sleeping is it? What you say if Mylot decided to set the best response option so that it only becomes active after a 24 hour period?

In the FAQs, mylot recommends that you wait for one week before choosing a best response. This gives members who do not visit the site every day the opportunity to participate in the discussion. It really does discourage people from responding if a Best Response is awarded too soon and it does no harm to wait. As long as a discussion is still getting responses, hold off on the best response.

I agree that it's not fair to choose the bst response after few hours because there is not enough time fr other people to respond. Sometimes when mylot members see that the best response is already selected, they prefer not to respond at all because there is no chance they will get the best reponse. Moreover, in Mylot there are many members from differeent countries so when it's morning for some members, the others are in the middle of the nught so they can't really post their response. I don't know if mylot should make a minimum time for choosing the bst response, but I can recommend all members to wait before they mark the best response. Maybe other people would like to response too...

I usually wait a couple of weeks to award a best response myself, but I think there might be some discussions where awarding a quick BR would be appropriate. For instance, if someone asks a simple question and receives a thorough answer to that question then the thread has achieved its purpose. I think the BR can be given and the community can safely move on to the next discussion. Of course, most discussions AREN'T like that. It's definitely not a good thing if people are tossing best responses around carelessly and quickly just because they want to be done with a discussion. 24 hours does sound like a reasonable period to me.
