Do you select "Best Answer" on all your questions? Why or why not?

    Do you select "Best Answer" on all your questions? Why or why not?

    Many people don't know that there is a hub accolade for having your answer selected as the best answer. I was just curious to see how many people who asks questions, take the time to select the best answer.

    Yes, periodically I will go through my questions to see if there is either a good answer, or answers have stopped coming in. I then pick the answer that best answers my question.

    I think there are probably more questions that don't have a best answer vs those that do, but I still managed to get 10 best answer selections, which made me smile.

    Perhaps there should be a notification after a week or so to the question asker, that they have not selected a best answer/

    Sometimes I like several answer the best I don't want to favor anyone, or give a casual viewer the impression that I have stamped my seal of approval on only one "correct" answer.

    I am aware there is a badge for getting awarded many "Best Answers" but I don't feel like I am cheating anyone out of anything if I deem that no answer is "the best." I want to be fair, not play accolade games. The accolades do not really mean anything anyway, they are just frills to keep some people more engaged on HubPages.  I would strive to provide a good answer even if there were not badges for it, I assume most people would too.

    The main benefit in answering questions is to gain more exposure.  I hope that someone reading my measured response thinks "Hey, that Bubba-Math is an all-right guy, I think I'll read some of his hubs!"

    I will choose a best answer if one is possible. I do not like to judge opinion questions because everybody is entitled to their ideas.
    There has been one our two questions that did not get answered clearly and I did not choose a  best answer.
    I like to choose a best answer whenever possible because I know some people want the Best Answer Accolade and that is not an easy one to earn.
