Do you think you deserved Most Helpful or do you not care? I don't but see others get it when it didn't seem as helpful but whatever it's not up to me I just gave my opinion :) lol I was bored too and curious about this.
Upvotes, downvotes and MO/BA is always a little comforting, as it means that at least one person or more has read the opinion, if it's been read, then it was entirely worth it to post it in the first place. ^.^
I don't generally mind beyond the above mentioned I'm really here for the points.
Actually i prefer a thank you as response than MHO, especially someone talking head like me usually gave packs of words and you know ground off the patience plus nothing came back, we don't even know the asker read it or not
I'm on here to help people out thats it :p i could care less about xper points. The only thing I expect in return after answering questions and putting time in to help people is that they would do the same thing for me
Well i just use this site to kill time and mho so a nice incentive. Like when I play xbox I like getting achievements/awards and I think mho is kinda the equivalent on this site. So I like getting it but the only time I really get disappointed is if I give a really long detailed answer and they give mho to someone who barely wrote anything. I hate when people ask for unbiased opinions yet they give mho to the person who tells them what they want to hear.
Sometimes I am actually fairly disappointed that I didn't get it, as for some of those posts I put in quite a bit of time to write the gigantic block of text, that I usually do. That, and if it WAS well thought out, then I would like to refer to it sometimes later, but unless I remember something word by word so I can search via Google, I will never find it unless it did get an MHO and I can just look among the "MHO only" opinions.
Oh yes, I do like to give it and get it. It's a way of giving and getting appreciation. Plus, if you had the feeling someone was in trouble when he or she asked the question, it's nice to hear you've been able to help :-)
Ya, some people looking at other peoples questions will have the same problem, and will want to see the most helpful opinion. Also, if someone really serves such a good opinion and helped the asker, I think its a great way to show gratitude other than thanking them. Also, I hate it when I come up with such a clever opinion and I don't get Most Helpful for it! Or when someone forgets to choose a Most Helpful. Anyways, as you can its taken pretty seriously!
The only time I ever care about it is when I put a lot of thought and effort into a post or whatever. Which realistically almost never happens. It's nice recognition but I don't really think about it too much
Do I care? That's difficult to answer. I don't really care if I get it, I don't share to get it, I share to help people. But I do appreciate it when someone selects mine as helpful, because I'm glad I helped... or made them laugh, or whatever.
