Two-thirds of this week's respondents said their scheme has not yet chosen a method for equalising GMPs.
This week's 92 Pensions Buzz respondents also answered questions on whether their scheme had a long-term funding target, and if any element of ESG should have priority than the others.
The majority (66%) of respondents said their scheme has yet to decide on a method for GMP equalisation.
One said: "Not yet. Once the position becomes clear on conversion, and does not differ materially from what we already know or anticipate, that will be the route to follow. Why have a year-by-year calculation that will be prone to errors and cost to manage (and unpick errors)?"
Another said GMP equalisation will "finish a good number of pension managers", while another noted that their scheme is awaiting "more comprehensive guidance".
Method C2 was favoured by the High Court in last year's Lloyds Banking Group judgment. It involves assessing pensions paid to men and women each year and paying the better, while maintaining a cumulative running total and adding interest.
The methods used by the respondents included: Conversion, D2, and C2 with conversion. One said they would go for "the cheapest".
Just 15% said their scheme has chosen a method for GMP equalisation, but one noted their scheme is "ignoring it", as it is satisfied the total pensions are equalised.
Over half (56%) of this week's 92 Pensions Buzz respondents said their schemes had long-term funding targets focussed on self-sufficiency.
One said: "Self-sufficiency is a very generic term and will vary considerably between schemes. Ultimately it is merely a step on the way to the endgame for a closed scheme."
Another noted that buyout was, however, "probably eventual", while A further respondent said that "if you aren't self-sufficient, both now and for the future, then you cannot meet the demands put upon the scheme".
However, under a fifth said their scheme was focussing on buyout. One of these respondents noted that this is the scheme's ultimate aim, "but we have a way to go, and what is self-sufficiency, is that ever achievable?"
Another said: "[The] ultimate aim has to be buy-out, although I appreciate that may seem unattainable for some."
The question was not applicable to just over a quarter of pundits, although one respondent said that their scheme intends to "remain open and believe that self-sufficiency and buyout are misconceived pension objectives".
Over half (54%) of respondents said all aspects of ESG should have equal weighting for pension funds.
One said: "[I] do not feel we should be differentiating, all need to be factored into our delivery."
Another said all aspects are "inextricably interlinked". The respondent added: "I would even say, you should not consider the ‘E' without understanding the ‘S' context (look at the impact of solar farms on Uganda if you have any doubts)."
Another argued that it would be preferable to have a single definition of what it actually means.
Under a third (31%) said ‘governance' was the most important aspect of ESG, with one saying: "With good governance, everything else falls into place."
Another commented: "Good governance will consider the social and environmental impact."
Some 14% said the ‘environmental' side of ESG is most important. One said that this would be the case from the members' point of view, but essentially all three are important.
Just 1% said the ‘social' aspect of ESG is the most important.
The majority (60%) of respondents did not think that the government should face age discrimination action for moving some public sector workers to less beneficial pension schemes.
It comes as law firm Leigh Day argued some doctors and teachers could have grounds for legal challenge following 2015 pension changes which saw younger public sector workers excluded from more generous schemes.
One respondent argued: "Goodness me, anything that reduces/limits the burden of public sector pensions must be considered." Some other respondents said that public sector schemes are too generous compared to the private sector.
Another commented: "The younger will, on average, live longer so not changing this is potential discrimination to the older population."
Over a fifth (22%) disagreed, however. One said the government should have recognised the inequality issues. Another commented: "Yes, this was always discriminatory and likely to be challenged in this way."
Some 18% were unsure. One said this has happened to lots of other pension schemes too.
The majority of respondents (61%) did not think mid-Life MOTs for scheme members should be mandatory.
One said this is a "gimmick", adding that it would place a financial burden on employers or schemes.
Another commented: "People should be responsible for their own financial planning. It is not the job of employers or schemes to nanny employees in this manner."
A further respondent argued it should not be mandatory but should be encouraged, while another said: "Too much is mandatory already. Scheme members should take responsibility for their own lives. Employers can help with education where the employers think it appropriate."
Some 30% said mid-Life MOTs should be mandatory. One commented: "This would be helpful, but is it just another case of yet further employer cost in doing this? Should it be a government arrangement at their cost?"
Another questioned: "What possible objection would anyone have"?
Just 9% were unsure, with one commenting: "They are a good idea as part of the employee rewards package, but small firms will struggle."
