How many RESPONSES would make you SATISFIED???

Here in mylot, we make discussions and of course, we are hoping for responses. In fact, we sometimes hope for responses to 'flood in' everytime we start a discussion. I would just want to know: what exact number of responses would satisfy you? Personally, I only 'target' 10 responses and I'm already very happy. But I would surely be happier if more responses could come in. How about you?? Please let us know your own 'targets'...

Im new here. I haven't thought about the number of responses needed seriously yet. What I am here for right now is just to know the insights of other people on my handful of queries. Once I'm enlightened, I'm already satisfied. I also try as much as possible to share my insights which can (I hope) clarify other people's concerns and curiousities. Thanks for the question. My final answer: I target for good responses and I generously rate them appropriately.

Well I must say welcome! It's good that you're here for insights more than anything else. However, it would you really be excited when you see that the responses are really 'flooding in'. Furthermore, if more responses could come in, there would also be more insights that you could analyze. Thanks for this response!

good point there, both of you. mylot is a way to let our curiosity be answered so it's better if you get lots of well thought answers instead of a simple yes/no liner.

i'm not going to be a hippocrite and tell that number doesn't matter to me. of course the more responses i get the more satisfied i am because it only shows that my topic is worth discussing. it shows that it is interesting enough to puch others to think and respond. yeah think. of course it's not just the numbers, it's also about gaining responses that are worth reading. it would satisfy me to get responses that came from thoughts, have sense and answer my topic. hmmm target...well anything is better than zero right? but i'll be much happier if i get 10 or more responses. ;)

I think the numbers of responses ma not be really imporatant to me.I would prefer to have 10 quality responses of 20 lines rather than 50 one line responses, I will read a long replies carefully everytime and try to comment on them if possible. I also do not want to set any targets to try to make me satisfied, I will start discussion when I want to ask something or share something, if I canget some useful replies, I will be very happy.:)

I completely understand your point. Sometimes, it's really a lot better to see 'well though of' type of responses than one liners. There actually are times here when I feel a little disappointed because there are mylotters who answer with a single line when the discussion that I have started requires an answer that a single line couldnt explain. Thanks for this response!

I guess 10 is enough but I get excited when I get more than that like 15 or 20. I have never gotten 20 before because maybe my discussions are not interesting enough but that will be my next target. Happy posting!

I completely understand how you feel. I myself feel very very excited everytime I see that the turn out of responses are doing so well. It feels like a lot of people are interested about the discussion that I have started. Thanks for this response! Happy posting!

I usually don't worry to much about responses. Normally, when I start a discussion it is because I want someone elses opinion or advice about something. I realize that not everyone has the same concerns or problems that I do. There have been a few discussions where I have shared some information that I thought some people would like to know. These kinds of discussions don't usually get responses. I don't mind atleast I was willing to share.

Well I think that's good because you dont expect a lot from other people. I think you're right - there are various people here in this community and of course not all of these people have different concerns in life. What we start here might not be as interesting for other people. Thanks for this response!

i'm happy if i get one even. i dont often get more than that. i obviously need to write more about things other people know more about. :)

But I am sure you'd be happier if you get more than one! I think you're right - you should indeed write more about things which would interest more people because they know more about it. I hope we could both be good at that. Thanks for this response!

It's good that you easily get contended. But how would you feel if nobody really responded? Me, I wouldnt be angry but honestly, I might be very disappointed. Thanks for this response!

technically, no amount can compare to what i will feel. for me, even if there is only one who will reply to my post, im already happy about it.

Hi there and welcome to mylot! Well I suggest you start your own right now because that would be a very happy experience: posting your first discussion and see some mylotters respond. Im hoping that you could do well here! Happy posting and thanks for this response!

actually when I start a discussion, I don't have any particular trget number of respones in mind but of course I do expect to get answers.I don't have any idea if a certain number of responses would satisfy me because as of now..even I get 2 or 5 or 10 responses I'm happy with that as long as someone responded to my discussion.

One or two quality repsonse per day would be great for my topics. The number of responses might be great but is most of them are full of nonsense then there is no good in it doesn't it?

When i was just a newbie here, i do really get disappointed when i see my discussions have only 1-5 responses. But now i am satisfied and happy if i get 8 responses.

in all aspects of life, my motto has been "expect the worst, but don't expect." and i apply it here in myLot as well.. hehhehe! i would be surprised and really feel good when my discussions would exceed 10 responses and as long as there's one who responded i think i'm alright. heheheh!
