Why would one choose a "best" answer, when the question posed would not make sense to do so?
Concerning questions of one's personal reasons or unique to that person, why would one choose a "best" answer, as it seems to me, with such a question one cannot choose a "best" answer, i.e., "Why do you write?" In my opinion, it makes no sense to choose a best answer, or do you always choose a best answer anyway?
Good questions. I have two questions I asked that I cannot choose a best answer for. Ridiculous, isn't it?
They could just be helping out one of the hubbers. By getting a "best question", you can get alccolades for having 50 of them. I understand entirely where you are coming from. It's just for motivation.
i think people choose best answers in THAT situation when the answerer has a very creative answer, or the answer strikes a chord in the questioner with their answer...what i DON'T get is when someone chooses a best answer when the answer in question is the worst answer, and the questioner picked them just to comment on their answer.. this happens a lot in yahoo answers. frustrating.
Hi tlmcgaa70, Thanks for the great answer here. Yes, I do not understand that either!
wow...thank you. i KNOW this was a hard one to choose to, you had some really great answers to this question. there are many times i wish i could choose more than one B/A, bet you did to.
You're welcome. Mee too! It is difficult on a lot of questions, as all are good answers, as you have stated.
i guess different people have different point of view which is consider the best answer. I don't vote"best answer" that easily unless i find the answer is funny and makes sense.
To satisfy the need to self-affirm the "best answer" to their own question. It makes people happy to hear an answer to a question they ask, that they agree with. It doesn't necessarily have to be the right answer...

I apologize, but it seems a "Best" answer was chosen on my question when I did not choose it. I hope the HP Team can help me or someone can inform me why that happened! I noticed it via my phone and I knew that I did not choose an answer and I was not going to do so any time...

Would you delete a question you posed if it had 156 answers and 2, 404 views so far when ...?I need feedback as I had recently posed a question which, apparently, is a "hot" topic question, and I am thrilled so many answered the question and it has so far produced views into the...

Do you think being able to choose a best answer will change the Answers section?So it has now been said that soon we will be able to pick a best answer. Do you think this will have any impact on the answers section?

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?

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.
