I found all those having good star ratings have a large friend circle... Also those who get more responses to thier discussions also have big friends circle.. What makes you accept a friend request ... Is it the quality of their discussions...thier star ratings...or thier responses to your discussions... I think if we got the idea about this we can make more friends and this will definitly do good not only in mylot earnings and ratings butalso will be helpful in understanding each other.. So respond please..

I accept a friend request just because they requested to be my friend. I like to meet new people and I am always interested in meeting new people.

i do tend to be somewhat picky in accepting friends. if i like the discussions they are posting, the quality and clarity of their posts and responses then i will add them as a friend. star ratings dont affect my decision greatly because they fluctuate so much, even if a person has a 5 star, if i like their topics and feel their quality is okay i will accept them

For me im quite picky in choosing friends personally because i could either gain or have shared unique interests which would be an advantage.But maybe not in this world-wide-web. Diff. people have different cultures and characteristics/personalities to offer hence thoughts may differ sparingly.A matter of fact, each has their own motives, too. The clarity of subject and postings as well as the type of topics posted are some that provide definite profile, initially, of the community. Anyhow, a friend request is still a request, which you may opt to accept or not.It's a choice, and whatever your choice people in this lot shd. be prepared and not be offended. Whatever you portray from your posts magnifies, at least, who you are and what you can offer.

I accept all friends who make a request. I do not deny any of them since they are so kind as to provide me a source of discussion topics to respond to. However, I do check on their profile to assess if I am able to respond to any of their discussions and the types of discussions they responded to. I will give them the benefit of doubt even if I find that we are poles apart and there is not even one similar interest. I will delete the friend immediately if I get any private message for some personal agenda.

hello aliyaa.. erm.. what will make me to accept a friend request? very simple.. first of all.. i think that nobody should deny a friend request.. unless you think that your friend is having some kind of intention to harm you.. then you have to be really careful.. usually. i will accept any friend request.. and i really hope they will send me a message so we can chat.. but it seems like most of the mylot users are here to post in discussion.. and very seldom they will send message to friends.. it's really dissapointing.. as i'm hoping more from my friends.. nevermind -)

I accepted every friend request. I don't tend to limit my fren cycle here, as when I joined mylot I have only my referral as my friend.

I think the ratings have a lot to do with quality of discussions instead of quantity. It does help to have a lot of friends to reply to your discussions though, I will admit to that. ;)

I generally see what type of answers they give and discussions they start. Not always if I agree with their opinions, but how well they state their side and how they treat others while they do it.

I find i tend to be a little fussy with my friends requests, i like to be sure they contribute to conversations, i also like them to be near my age - we share interests & possible similarities then. I tend to deny friendship requests from the people who like to reply with 1 liners or start discussions with those stupid questions that most of us avoid replying to just because they're pointless. I also have a tendancy to accept females, not sure why i do that but i find myself being more comfortable with female friends :) I do had 1 or 2 males in my friends list but only because i like the way they startor reply to discussions :)

They have to respond to my discussions. If they don't patronize me then they usually don't make the list. I respond to my friend's discussions.

When I get a friend request I first go to that particular user's profile. I see their discussions, if they are of my interests or not or they are all junk. When I see that their discussions are good enough to respond then I accept the request. If you can't respond to their response or can't expect their response to yoru discussion by reading their posts, then ther is no means of keeping a such friend. Also I see the response they make to my discussion. I never accept people with 0 post. Because you never know what kind of content they are going to post.

I will look at someones profile to see what they post and then accept them. For all the requests I have had so far, I have never turned anyone down. I like to have a wide circle, preferably from all over the world. It does make the discussions more interesting.

I am quite happy to accept anyone who is courteous. Thats what I do on myspace.

I usually go to the persons profile page (like I did with your request this morning), and I'll take a look at the discussions started and the star rating. If they are both good then I'll usually always accept that person as a friend. If it's all one line discussions or if the star rating is less than 7 then I'll deny the request.

I use to just accept them if I did not see they are cheating. Now I let them sit in my requests. I will look at their discussions and see if there are any that I think I can respond to, then wait to see if they are responding to me or my friends. I wish that there was a way to tell the person the reason you requested their friendship. Then we would know. I will not accept any one that I do not recognize from around the site, but will start to watch for them. i have a lot of requests and most of them it is the first and last time I have seen them. I like my friends, but do not want to get a bunch of junk threads, or pm's about earning money on-line. I also like for us to have some common interests.

I typically accept people who add me on their friend list. I also try to respond to all their discussions but I hav seen that many times they do not respond to mine. thats probably coz they already have 100s of friends on their list and it is not possible for them to respond to all.

I do NOT accept every friend request and I'm curious why people request you to add them to your friend list when you have not replied to any of their discussions or have they replied to yours.
