How often do you check the new discussions?

I can't claim credit for originality on this one as I got the idea from one of my friends here. The more I read and participate here the bolder I get in asking people to be my friend. Thankfully many have accepted my invitation and the others I'm assuming that they haven't been on in a few days. Which brings me to my question. And I ask because I've been so busy reading and responding to discussions started by those on my friends list that I haven't had time to check the other new discussions. So how about you, have you been checking the new discussions posted by people who are not on your friends list?

I usually answer my friends discussions first, then look in the discussions from my interests, after that *then* I start checking the new discussions. Feel free to ask questions and don't be shy about participating! :)

this is the same with me here. i always tackle first those discussions which are coming from my friends. i find them mostly of great interest to me. if all those discussions from my friends have eaten up all of the time that i can spare to spend at the computer, then i can no longer take a peek at those new discussions poured in by ones not in my friends list. although i have been trying to drop by the no responses list everyday, at times, the discussions coming from my online frineds are really plentiful.

I also do find the discussions very interesting and also sometimes informative. I try to view the discussions everyday because I really enjoy answering their questions.

That's what so good about the forum...the membership is made up of people from all walks of life, from varied ages and countries.

I don't have to since all my friends are set to Notify On. My Mylot folder is always almost with plenty of discussions for me to answer. When I have to troll for discussions when the glitches cause the notification to not work then yes I bump among that and 0 resonse ones and friends ones. That is also how to use this system to make the most.

When I first joined, I used to check the hot topics, but they get so many responses sometimes that what I have to say is usually already covered. Then I used to read the relationship topics because there are always some really good discussions going on there. I then tried the discussions without responses. Then finally I hit the make extra money discussions because...well, I need to make some extra money. So here I am.

Being bold and creative is how you get yourself known.

I do enjoy the discussions that are posted by the mylot family. And also I do enjoy answering the questions that are asked by different persons.

I always pick up the discussion with no responses first. Later I go to my friend's disucussions.

That is not really nice. Nowonwards, I am planning to pick up the username from those who have responded to my discussion topic and give response them first. This takes slightly more time than picking discussion topics elsewhere. Thanks for your comments.

i am mostly making responses on those in my friends list, too. at most times, there are even so much more than i can handle and so, i can no longer get into the new discussions list anymore. i have made it a habit though to pass by the no responses list before signing out. i try my best to do at least 5 in a day. there are days though that i really have no more time to spare at all. this is what happens to us once that friends list gets really long and plenty. maybe, it is really a good thing to be going. i have found that the most interesting discussions for me are those coming from my online friends anyway.

That is so true. I get so involved in checking my friends discussions I sometimes forget to even check the discussions that I've started. :-) I know what you mean about friends list being long. And I apologize right here and right now to all my friends who may be reading this if I have not gotten around to contributing to one of your discussions.

I check discussions w/ no response and/or new user discussions first and often. On rare occasion I will answer something on the top discussions page. I don't really do new discussions though, unless there is nothing else to reply too. Overall, I stick with friends discussions and most important b/c I like to support new ppl and/or any discussion w/ no response, I make sure to do the no response and new user, then my friends...

I agree its nice to support the "newbies" as they are called on other forums. :-) And of course you do want to support your friends.
