How long should you wait before selecting a best answer for a question?
I've noticed that most answers seem to be provided within the first few days of asking a question then responses slow down dramatically.
Should you leave a question open for a long period of time in hopes that a better answer might be provided?
If you find an answer satisfactory and it answers all possible questions that pop up in your mind go ahead and select it as the best answer. According to the forums, there may be an option to change best answer later on as people may misuse it just for the accolades.
Accolades give hubbers no benefit other than some temporary joy, so I doubt it actually makes a difference when you choose a best answer. If people are really interested in answering no matter what, they'd answer it. Even if you already picked a best answer.

Should HP auto select Best Answer to Questions you ask?When Best Answer has not been awarded by the author of the question, in a reasonable time frame ( say 3 weeks ), do you think HP should auto select it?
