Do you read existing answers before you give your own?
I wonder if people even bother to check sometimes. I just clicked on a question that had three answers, and all three were worded differently, yet gave the exact same information.
I admit it, I do read other answers first. Sometimes I don't bother to answer because the answers already there are really good and I can't add anything to the discussion.
I read the other answers first. I will not answer it unless I have new or additional information to add. If I am adding onto an answer, I give the original person I read credit.
However if it is an opinion question, such as my favorite Christmas movie is..... I will simply answer it and only skim previous responses.
This question I would categorize as opinion because there is not one right or wrong answer.
I usually just provide my answer after reading the question.
If there are other answers I agree with, I will give a comment or "thumbs up".
I do some times if I don't quite understand the question. Some times other people's answers help me come up with a better way to right my own answer.
No. If I have an answer I give it. (my answer is not long enough so I'm adding this nonsense. lol)
I usually read answers from other hubbers first before I post my own. It helps me to explain more my answer. Sometimes I also learned from other answers.
I usually skim over the other answers to see if someone has already made a point that I wanted to. If not, I answer it, and if they have, but perhaps haven't went into depth, I will answer it and add depth. I think it's a waste of time to give the same answer as someone else... Plus, I can always give something a thumbs up if I agree with it!
I sometimes just read the answers without providing an answer. Usually it is a question I find interesting or something I want to find out about myself. i also sometimes read the other answers to see if somebody had already given my answer.
