I was a newbie before in MyLot... Like you, I'm also wondering how to get a lot of response for my discussions. That time, the members that are always in the hot topics were lordwarwizard, becuttieusa, and easy888. I must say that they're really great in making topics that it came to the point where they will have at least 100 or more response! One thing I've realized that time... ...if you want to have a lot of response, your discussion must have a lot of EXPOSURE! MyLot is like a huge billboard where we advertise our own products or shall we say topics. THE MORE EXPOSURE WE HAVE, THE MORE RESPONSES WE GET... ...THE MORE EARNINGS AS WELL! HAHAHAHA! LOL! No just kidding! Anyways, before I leave MyLot, I really want to share to all of you what I did to get a lot of response... 1.) Be Friendly! I notice that most of the responses I got were from my MyLot friends. It began since I started to add Mylot members as my friends. So here's what you have to do: - add everyone you see around here! When I say everyone, that means it's really EVERYONE! No exceptions! - add every people under your list of interests. (the more interests, the better!) - add every person that responded to your discussions. - add the friends of your friends. - don't reject friend requests. (Your pride won't work here, it will lead you nowhere!) Remember, DON'T CHOOSE! JUST ADD EVERYONE YOU SEE AS YOUR FRIEND. You must also accept everyone that wants to be your friend of course! You must have at least 1,500 friends. If possible, make it 2000 or more because "THE MORE MYLOT FRIENDS YOU HAVE, THE GREATER CHANCE YOU'LL RECEIVE A LOT OF RESPONSE!" Remember, there's no limit! You can even add 100% of MyLot population if you have the guts to do so. LOL! This 1st step is very important so start adding now! Heehee! 2.) Post your topics in the popular interests! NEVER START A TOPIC AS A GENERAL DISCUSSION. - post your topics in one of these popular interests: MYLOT, LIFE, PEOPLE, DOGS, LOVE I recommend you to post your topics in LIFE. That's what I did and it worked! It will also give your discussion MORE EXPOSURE because LIFE is where people usually post their topics. 3.) Post your discussion in the afternoon time. I still remember asking lordwarwizard before, when did he usually post his discussions. He replied "2pm or 5am" I tried to post mine around 3pm to 5pm and it really worked. - post your topics around 3 to 5 in the afternoon because this is usually the time where work and classes dismisses. That means, it's where people will be getting online. 4.) Add comment to every response you get. You probably notice the "discussions my friends started" box at the frontpage of your MyLot account. - comment on every response you received because whenever your discussion received a new response and comment, it will be taken to the top of the "discussions my friends started" box. Thus, giving your discussion MORE EXPOSURE. This step works perfectly if you have a huge number of MyLot friends. 5.) Be a good MyLot citizen. - don't be harsh or rude with your comments and response. - don't harass other members. - don't criticize other people's mistake. - don't just copy-paste other discussions or response. (It will ruin your reputation) - be original, be unique! IF YOU ARE GOOD TO OTHERS, OTHER PEOPLE WILL ALSO BE GOOD TO YOU. 6.) Start a very good and interesting topic. Now this is the most important one! The things mentioned above will be useless if your topic is not interesting at all. No matter what exposure you get, it will still be useless if your topic is not good. - make the title catchy! One that catches the attention of other MyLot members. - put some little humor in your discussion so that it won't become boring to read. - as much as possible, make your discussion short and simple. Before you start a topic, put yourself first in the shoe of the reader and ask yourself... "Will this be interesting?" or "Can I relate to this topic?" If you're confident enough that your topic will be a hit, then post it! MAKE SURE EVERYONE WILL RELATE TO YOUR DISCUSSION! I recommend you to start a topic related about different facts of life because this is usually the most interesting one. You can even post disgusting topics if you like just for fun. Just make sure it won't hurt others. Avoid posting nonsense and one-liner discussions because that will lead you nowhere. Being included on the top ten in the hot topics will also gain your discussion MORE EXPOSURE. Here's some tips to get yourself in the hot topics's top ten: - rate every response and comment as positive. NEVER RATE THEM AS NEGATIVE because it will decrease your chance to be in the top ten. It will also affect your star rating. - once again, add comment to every response you get. THE MORE RESPONSE AND COMMENT, THE MORE YOU WILL RATE THEM AS POSITIVE. Thus, increasing your chance to belong to the top ten. - as much as possible, post only one topic a day so that you can concentrate only on that particular discussion. If you have another topic in your mind, it's much better if you reserve it for tomorrow. - most importantly, your topic must be interesting of course! How can you get to the top ten if your topic isn't HOT right!? Got my point? Remember, HOT TOPICS ARE JUDGED BY THE MOST POSITIVE-RATED AND THE MOST NUMBER OF RESPONSE AND COMMENTS so make sure to rate all of your responses and comments as positive. Alright, I think that's it! Heehee! Well, I'll see you all soon. I have to leave MyLot for awhile because school is coming up so I'll be quite busy especially now that I'm a senior high school. I'm really looking forward for my graduation. Heehee! At least I gave a little remembrance to all of you. HAHAHAHA LOL! Hope you find these tips useful for you to enjoy MyLot. I'll probably come back every weekend if I'm not that occupied with projects. So I'm really excited to see your discussions in the hot topics. Heehee! ciao! And oh yeah, maybe you can also ask lordwarwizard, becuttieusa, and easy888 for more tips. They're the gods of MyLot so I'm sure you'll learn a lot from them also. :) - Ron Reyes www.ronreyes.co.nr

Hi Ron Reyes, you are such a nice person. Leaving all these valuable tips for mylotters as a farewell gift. Anyway, I just want to know one thing, if you put a comment only to thank for the response, isnt that violating the mylot guidelines? And can you just rate every response positive without leaving any comments? Appreciate your advise.

That's basically good! At least you're not below 5. The first time I got a star, my rating was 7. Just be a good MyLot citizen. Keep rating discussions, responses, comments, and pictures as POSITIVE. I'm sure your star will increase in no time. :)

oh, that was quite a read!! thanx for sharing ron. however, i knew almost all you have just mentioned. i have a few queries though: 1. what's the use of making 2000 or more friends if you can't do justice to them? by justice i mean responding to theirs. 2. what's the point of getting 200+ responses with less qualitative ones? obviously, i prefer good, informative responses to oneliners and diluted ones. if you think i am bit passive kind, i have no problem with it. but i just have to have a wonderful rapport with all my friends and not just a few. i appreciate the usrs getting hordes of responses. its there way of making money and be satisfied but i have mine different. all the best for your exams. we will wait for your return. i will just miss someone with 200 odd responses to his credit!! LOL.....

Thank you for letting the cat out! You have spilled the beans out of the bag. We sure miss your absence. Finish up your duty as a student and come back to rock mylot again. You have created a history in mylot by putting up disgusting topics and getting hundreds of response for it. You became an issue on few discussions for being the odd one out - dare to put up disgusting topics. I salute you for that!

That was very helpful advice. So much time it took you to write that, I hope many people read it and take head to such wonderful advice. That's what I love about Mylot, we are not just here to make a little money, but we are here to help others as well. And for you to give such a detailed and informative discussion should be commended. I know when I come across a new mylotter I always tell them to think of a discussion that will catch many peoples attention and to make sure it is discussion worthy. I try to ask myself, before I start a discussion, if I was in a restaurant would someone talk to me about this? Also, I try to stick to the motto "if you don't have something nice to say, then don't say anything at all". I'm sure if you glanced at my discussions, you could probably tell on which ones I didn't ask myself the restaurant question. Well, before I go, I must say CONGRATULATIONS, on graduation. May you have much success with everything you do.
