Does a question with "Best Answer" already awarded make you less likely to answer?


I've seen lately that there are quite a few questions with "Best Answer" given out in less than an hour. I sometimes wait weeks before I choose.

    I've done that, not choosing a best answer. I've gotten good ones though after weeks or even months.

    I applaud you. Even though I've already thrown the best answer for this question because I'm ridiculous, I hope people still answer it.

    Yeah, I like the old system better - that at least allows other users to vote up the most accepted answer to the top, as this method promotes personal bias via the one who asks the original question (like selecting the best answer due to friendship).
