Do you expect others in mylot to response to your discussion?

After being active in mylot I got a lot of discussion to response and comment. Some of the discussion is not in my interest list and I'll response if I'm interested with it. Some how I'm trying to response every discussion i got. Usually, I start with the discussion I like most in my interest list. I'll ignore the discussion that I don't have any idea to response. I'm sorry for that. Sometimes what are we trying to rise up is not others interest. I understand what we are thinking is not others think. That why I don't expect so much others to response to my discussion. The other reason is I don't have enough time. So.. sometimes you'll see I response to old discussion (2 or 3 weeks passed). Do you do the same thing?

Uaually I will try to response those discussions from my mail notice. 1. Discussions from my friends. 2. Reply to my own discussions. 3. Search for discussions with no response that interest me. And me too, I don't expect so much that others will response to my discussions as they might not be interested in my discussions.

I am the same way myself pretty much. I respond to discussions I find interesting. I mean if I don't understand it or it doesn't concern me I skip the discussions. I look through my friends discussions first to see what posts I find interesting.Then after that I go to mylot to look for more discussions to respond to.

Also if others are not interested in the discussions I have I don't expect them to answer them.

Honestly i dont mind, i do get the feeling that many people and friends feel there friends should respond to there's but i dont get my e-mails so i never know when they have started too, also i think its inportant to make sense of what you are talking about and not just respond with a few words just to boost ur earnnings.

LOL. i didn't noticed about the time posted...as long as it's caught my interest. i only know when the owner the discussion said that it was posted a year ago. LOL. when i log-in to mylot i check first the discussions posted by my friends if i saw a topic that i have an idea to share so i post my comment. next is the discussions on my interest...i don't expect also respond to my discussions but i am happy if many will do.

I will not responde if I have nothing to add. And I dont expect others to respond unless they have some sort of interest in the subject.

I never worry if I don't get responses to a discussion even though it is lovely when you do, I just think that there are so many other discussions mine has been missed or the subject wasn't that relevant to many. I carry on anwsering ones I feel I can and when I think of something to start another discussion with I do. I always respond to anyone that responds to my discussions though as I find that keeps the discussion flowing more and quite often if I go into discussions my friends have started they can be from a few weeks ago but if it is a subject I know about like you will answer. Ellie :D

Definitely, I will feel extremely happy if my new discussion receives lots of responses during the first day. This means that my discussion is interesting and attractive to mylotters here. I only login mylot and could only go through the discussions and respond those which I am interested in, as I have limited time for responding them. It doesn’t matter whether the discussions are old or new as long as they are within my ability to answer. I spend most of my leisure to answer discussions. I do start new discussion occasionally.

lol, i have my own way to discuss things. At the beginning I search a topic i'm intrested in, I answer it and on the bottom you see things related to that subject. I select one of those and so on and on t'ill i find something like this discussion! lol

NO, because not all people can read your topic. Or other maybe dont like your topic or even no knowledge about it.

I hope others respond to it as a lot of times I need their opinion. Sometimes I dont get a response - usually when the query i ask or the point I share is not very interesting!

No, I don't expect others to answer my discussions. I hardly ever make them. It is always nice when I do get responses though! I have answered old discussions many times since I have been here. Sometimes I don't even realize how old they are until I have my response all typed up.

Hi Mamagee! Since I'm a newbie, I'm trying to still find my way around and post to whomever or whatever attracts me in discussions. I post a response if it sounds interesting and don't expect a comment back, but so far i have had about an 80% commnt back from what i write even though i expect the person to take it or leave my response. Thats the whole reason of reading what others write to learn from them or ignore. Well yours caught mine!

If I have no interest with the discussion, or I cannot identify with it I find it hard to respond to it. I do not expect a response all the time, because what I do is not always interesting to others or they cannot identify with it. As for time, I find there is that much to do on here somedays that I just cannot keep up with it all! It is worse than working in an office.
