When you start a new discussion do you usually control if someone had already wrote about it? I don't. I've replied to many discussions so I try not to start a similar one as the one is have responded to.

Whenever I want to start a discussion, I check it first if the topic I would like to post is too common. And if that's the case, I try to change the topic in a way that the answers will come out differently. But when I was still a newbie, I had no idea about this kind of thing. I had posted two discussions that were so common. And after reading a discussion about "reused" topics, I'm more careful when posting new ones.

when i start a new discussion i try to be more original to make more responses in it and i hate making short titles on my discussions since i dont even respond to any short titled discussions.but it is really hard to make a unique discussion since most topics are already posted here but still there is a lot to think about new one's.

Hello dear lorelai. When I start a new discussion, I don't think so much what others might have as it is very natural that there exist many similar discussions. You know, many people might think alike when starting a new discussion. But you can always try to begin with your discussion in a slightly different way from the other discussions. By the way, I don't start many discussions unless I think that it might interest mylotters so that I can get more responses. But I am sad to say that my first discussions do not have many responses and I am still looking forward to having more. Thanks for your discussion, dear friend.

Well,I don't like to reply many similar discussions.I think that if I have to reply,I will post different responses every time.I don't like to post the same responses,it seems that my thought is too little.I always try to reply the similar discussions with different responses,I don't want to be boring,I like innovating in my words.I always make sure that I post a single and diference responses.

I don't bother myself with starting new discussions these days....Replying to discussions is faster for me... :D
