I initiate many discussions and find my mailbox flooded with answers - do I have to answer all the comments - it is very time consuming - or will just rating them be sufficient ? I hope my friends will understand that I have read all their replies.

Hi dbhattji, I am happy that your mailbox flooded with answers; which in turn enhance your earning. You should thank them each and every one. I do agree it is time consuming and you get no financial benefits but it develps friendship for getting more answers. What do you think. I answer all my friends discussion. Except few none of them thank me. Further most of them do not answer my discussions.

more confused - are we paid by the number of answers that we get or by the number of posts/responses and comments we make? No wonder my earnings are never what I expect. I have had lot of answers from you and even went and checked your profile - thank you for participating in my discussions.

Hi, I posted lot of answers to discussions day before yesterday and yesterday. Yesterday, I was expecting .50 cents credit at least. Alas I was paid .13 cents. I was shocked. I do not how Mylot calculate credits for the discussion.

To let you know the mylot guidelines state that you shouldent comment on your responses because it dosnt earn you any extra money. For me what I do is I read the responses in my discussions and then I make it a point to respons to a few that either didnt read the discussion in full or to the ones that have a very valid response and I totally agree with I will comment and tell them that I agree and whay I agree but I dont comment on all ofthem because it is time consuming andtakes away from respondingto other peoples discussions

I thought any post gets you money, it may be less for comments than for new posts, I you sure that comments are never paid for? I usually respond because it is like to talking to people on a subject, makes the discussion more lively.

No you don't have to comment on all the esponse you get for your discussions. but it would be a good idea if you want people to keep coming to your discussions. I have responded to some discussions that the poster necer came back and commented on any resoponses. It makes me feel as though the poster never bothered or cared enought to return to their discussions. I repond to the first 10 or so (never got very many over 10). but don't always comment on all of them if I can't think of something to write about. If a person get 20 or so discussion commenting on all of them would be so time consuming that that is all a person would get done. But at least pick out some to respond to and maybe come back and comment on them if they commrnt to your comment. It can make the discussions more interesting and keep people coming back. Any way that's my take on this subject.
