Do you have to start descussions to make out on myLot?

I start a couple of discussions on many days here, but on some days I just respond to what others start and ask. Do you think it makes a difference, and is it ok to just respond to discussions? What does it mean that you aren't starting many discussions? Is it that you prefer someone to take the lead, or maybe the discussion you had considered already had a start? Why do you start or not start discussions? And does it matter?

I think answering discussions is probably better for earning on MyLot, especially for new members. Starting discussions does not go on your 'count' so help towards being able to add photos to other people's discussions or copy and paste. Also earnings on started discussions only increase after (I think it is) 5 replies. So until you have some friends, recruits or people thinking you have written thoughtful replies members will probably not get many replies. Thank you for replying to mine by the way. That is how I found your discussions.

I would have to go back and check out the discussion and the respons I made, but I usually only respond to discussions that interest me and either make me think or that are fun. I am glad that I found your discussion to comment on and that you found mine.

I respond to more discussions on Mylot than actually create many . most of my posting activity is done later in the evening most of the time so I end up not getting to many responses .That's why I've turned to responding more often .

I strongly believe that responding to other members discussions with quality posts fetches good earnings from this Mylot site . We may start a couple of new topics in a month and give importance to posting replies .

I can't complaiin and I used to stay away from posts with lots of responses because I figured that you would get lost in the crowd. The I realized that the more who see your response the more who can add a +, now I'm not sure if that means anything but it can't hurt

I'm not totally sure if starting discussions earns more or not. But I do feel like when you respond to a lot of discussions it helps to increase your earnings.
