So far I have only had the one discussion that languished for a while with no responses at all. Then a new friend responded to it, which made it a whole lot better for me. I have not started many discussions because I have not been coming here a lot and also never got a lot of responses to any of the discussions that I started. Someone told me that many good discussions just get missed .. there are so many new ones being started all the time. It is impossible to get to all of them and that seems to be right from what I have seen. This friend said we should go back through all the discussions started by our friends and respond to them. That is what I have been doing, but some of the discussions don't interest me, so I leave them unless I can say something decent that is. I cannot tell you how to get people to respond to your discussions. In the beginning what I did was respond to those of my friends, then anyone who responded to one of my discussions. I would return the compliment and respond to some of theirs. As the friends have increased, I am still doing the same sort of thing.

Yea, it's very sad when theres no response to your discussions..but any ways...I do have some of that moments too here in mylot..but hey just keep on going...thats all we need.and about attracting mylotters..I just don't have idea at all..sometimes I post a discussion but just not hpong that much response but unbelievaly..it attracts more responds than i have hoped and the one i post with highest believe would end up wit 2 or 3 response hardly..so i just don't have any idea... Best of luck for you...

I feel that they do not find my topic interesting that's why they never did respond Or i would think May be my topic is so common every one is bored of it now.And no one wants to reply over it.I would rather try to come up with new topics,topics that are never been in discussions before.I never wanted to attarect anyone through anything here But I think your topic must have some sensible issue in it rather than some stupid old question which's been repeated on my lot again and again.Try to ask you question of discussion as descriptive as you can so everyone can understand it and more likely to reply on it.

Hello panicdude. I will go through some of your discussions and see what I can contribute. I checked your profile and was surprised to see that we both joined mylot four months ago. Its quite obvious that you are not active here. I used to be pretty hooked with mylot when I was just a newbie. However, I started to lay low for about 3 weeks already. Try to make your presence known by responding to more threads around mylot. I posted my first discussion after a month.

I feel the same way with you. We posted discussions because we wanted to hear other people's opinion, comments, point of views and thoughts for a certain matter. Right now, I always consider topics that most people could relate with. Most of the topics I posted were base on my personal issues. I'm happy because I still receive responses from other members. I'm sure you'll gonna have much responses if you could have as many friends as you can.

At times I feel bad, other times I just plain feel boring...lol....But I do notice that someone eventually responds sooner or latter. I often have this expectation that my discussions would get responses right away, but it doesn't always go that way! So don't feel bad.....just keep in mind that there are 94,810 other members who probably go through the same thing!

I just PM my friends to answer my zero responses discussions. The rest they take care of it. since there are no other responses they get the best response.

it must be sad,and I have this experience actually,it made me even want to cry.because it signals that my discussion is not successful for no one want to read it.I try my best to make some interesting discussions,but sometimes it turned out to be a failure.

I do feel sad and sometimes i dont care. Getting a zero response to one of my discussions makes me really think and brainstorm of possible discussions i should make so i can get more responses from other users.

I usally think well maybe no ones interested in this disscussion and then I try to think of a better disscussion to start.

hmmm i'd definitely would feel sad. i mean, my discussion was not that interesting to gather anybody else's thoughts o nthe matter. but i guess its normal to feel that way. it gets me motivated to start thinking of better topics that will perk up the interests of other mylotters.
