I mean wot’s da point of selectin MHO after 4 opinion ONLY’ve been posted? This could happen in just 5 mins…. someone asks a question then gets 4 opinions in 5 mins and selects MHO…even if those opinions r not-so helpful since they’ve been posted so early…and someone who tries to post a helpful opinion and needs 10-15 mins in order to post it…before he/she hits “send” button MHO’s been selected!!! Kinda unfair isn’t it?
I agree. It can also stop the hit and run question askers if this is done, encouraging them to log back in after at least a day to select MH
BUT, with that said, I also think that MH should automatically be selected if the question becomes abandoned by the Asker, such as the answer with the most upvotes should be rewarded after 30 days or something. I have hundreds of opinions just sitting, and I've gone back to see what ever happened to the user or ask for an update (just because yeah, I give a shit sometimes), and the person has vanished. I almost feel like it's unresolved business for me. LOL
The person felt like that was the right response at the time. What if that's the only response they ever get on that question? I think it might be fair to have 2 or 3 mho's in a question... but that's not happening either.
im not sure what the rules are about picking a MHO but i think you should wait at least a day or two to give people a chance to answer. i think most people just ask random questions and pick a MHO quickly for the points.
You should wait at least 24 hrs. At one time GAG wouldn't let you select that quick. Yiy had to have a certain amount of comments or 24 hrs. Well something like that. Whats the point of posting a question then a few minutes later M H is selected?
I may let it go close to 30 days (the max before the system chooses one). That way I will have the widest variety of opinions to select from. Many people on here select one as soon as they have three or four opinions, which may be within five minutes. Then five minutes later they so one they like better and tell that user "If I had not already selected MHO I would select yours." The solution, obvious to anyone with a head on their shoulders, is wait a reasonable time. and considering G@G is worldwide, that would mean waiting till people currently asleep can wake up and weigh in.
There was a similar question last night I agree with more - You can only give MHO when you get system warning that automatic awarding will happen soon which I think is a month - My usage style often means I hit questions up to 24 hours later after posting.
