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.
sort by best latest
I've done that, not choosing a best answer. I've gotten good ones though after weeks or even months.
Surely to be fair to be fair to every one.
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).
The whole Best Answer thing confuses me. Often people jump right on an answer as soon as they get one. I like to let as many folks as want to answer get in on it and then I decide which I like the most. Except in this case. ;)
