I am , im just not interested now to respond to their discussions anymore. Some people here post so many discussions and when i answer them, they do not give any response not just to me, but any1 who responds. Its like they just left a discussion and they wont even care about response of mylotters. I wonder if they even take time to at least look at the responses. I myself do my best and read all my responses and do answer them or at least thank them. How about you? do you take time to read the responses and answer them?

Yes, I too, am tired of those who do not respond. My thinking on this is that some people have noticed myLot is paying more for starting threads than responding in them. I think this has lead to some people starting threads but not taking the time to comment on responses. My solution is to not respond in the threads of non responders. I hope everyone does this.

Very good thinking. The only way people earn for starting discussions is if they have at least 2 people respond to it. So if we all stop responding to those people who start discussion after discussion just to make money and have no intention of responding back to us. Then maybe they would get the hint that they need to respond back to us.

I'm getting a bit like that myself to an extent. I've actually had a case where I asked the topic starter a question (they had asked something but never stated their own opinion) and they obviously read the posts as they marked a best response some time later, but not once did they make any response. I don't expect people to respond to every post, not everything really requires a response as far as I'm concerned. I generally like to see a few comments back to some people on any decent sized topic conversation. Just to get an idea that the person is actually reading the topic. I'll respond to anything that I feel needs responding.

Yeah even i dont expect people to respond to every post, just that they dont respond to any post, they just dont care. Its like they just need responses for their cents. They post about some 15-20 discussions every day, and nope, no response.

People post topics to try and earn money. Silly stuff that no one cares about. Those are the posts that I just skip by. I would much prefer to reply to those who make sense and talk about something that matters.

Hi there subha.Yup i do understand, but im talking about those people who just never respond to any one and marking a best response is far outta question, its like they dont even bother to read any of the responses.

Well, in my case i am not bothered to those people who dont give me a comment or a reply on the things i wrote on their discussions. This is because on the mylot guidelines, it says there that you dont have to give a comment on every responses you get from the discussions you made unless of course they are asking you a question. thanking people on every reply they give you will be a waste of time on your part. you dont get a cent for thanking them and you lose your productivity. read the mylot guidelines so you will be enlightened. no need to thank me for this post. happy posting!

Of course even i dont respond to each and every single response, if im busy, im not really talking about that, there are some people, who just dont respond to any one, not just me , but no1 that responds their discussion. They have a huge number of posts like about 15-20 discussions daily and they do that daily, without any response for any1. So i think they dont even bother to go through the responses.

Hello there my friend. I do agree with you that I have certainly seen some people not responding to discussions or comments at all. I could understand if there are lots of people answering the particular discussion and there are just no time to answer every single one of it. And for that, I won't mind. Like for my discussions, I try my very best to answer to all discussions and comments. If not, I just go through my friends' discussions and answer them direct.

Hi there Zed_k4, how r you. Well i do understand that all of us are busy, and i absolutely have no probs if you cant respond to all the responses, but just few would at least mean you have gone through them, but some dont even respond to any responses...

Hmm... frankly speaking, I noticed someone who posted 10-15 new discussions a day but he never really get to check (i think) his own discussion to atleast respond on one of them. As for me, I take time to respond or READ all mylotters reply to my discussion because it makes me appreciate mylot more and more besides mylotters are like family to me... how can I not respond to them? Cheers!

Yes it does get frustrating when you respond to someone and they never respond back. I have started to keep a list of people who are famous for not responding back. So the next time I am on here and I see they started a discussion. I know to not bother responding as I am not going to get a response back. I know for myself I try to respond back to everyone who responds to my discussions. Sometimes it might take my a few days to get back to them, but I do eventually comment back to them. Like on the weekends, I am very busy around the house and don't get on mylot very much. So if I happen to start a discussion say on a Thurs night or Friday. Most likely it might be until Monday morning before I get back to them.

If they only knew that commenting back to those who have responded to them helps thier earnings. I believe they would start responding back. A discussion is a conversation between two people. So when someone starts a discussion and they get responses and never bothers to comment back to them, then really you don't have a true discussion.

Get out of my head! I have been very annoyed with this type of member and have deleted any of them that I had on my friends list. I do not answer as many responses as I could and should but I am not a flood poster either. I do care about what I am posting. I just wish more did.

Yes I agree. I don't like when people make discussions on myLot, but don't respond to their responses. I also don't like when people make so many one line discussions because it gets annoying. However I answer many discussions because it's very interesting on here. So even if they don't respond it is still interesting to respond. Pablo

Even i used to respond, but as its just useless, and some people just dont take the time ti veiw our comments, im having a list of such people, whom i ll never respond to.
• India

Yes, sure! I try my best to get back to the discussions that I started and at least appreciate everyone that took the pains to reply me;I believe,some people doesn't bother to do that,because they knows,posting that sort of comments won't add to their earnings,or isn't it ? So,nice to meet you keep_onwatch!How are you? :)

I am happy to respond to as many as I can here as it's more than making a few $$$, it's about making friends and earning more especially from those from other countries. I take plenty of time eading so I choose the discussons I really want to reply to but also want to contact with as many as I can on here a well.

I try to respond to all of the posts that people make on my discussions. I like to read what they said. Sometimes I try to make it easier for others to understand it or ask them questions if they only partly answered the question I asked. I also like to have fun with them, praise them, thank them and applaud them. I also have been rating them positive for choosing to post in my discussions. I appreciate those who do.
• India

Yeah i feel the same way too, i appreciate those who respond to my discussion. I like it, that people actually read and respond to my discussion in their own way...

I have to say I have been guilty as charged. (hangs head sheepishly) Mostly I only do this in discussions that have gotten away from me.. in other words I started it and couldnt check on it for a few days then there were so many reponses I could not answer them all. I hate just answering one or two posters you know? Other than that sometimes I wont respond if their view is absolutly opposite of mine, not because I dont want to talk with them but because I dont want to antagonize them and see no way of responding with it. My humblest apologies if I have offended anyone. I wish we could like post a follow up post on the original especially when all the responses are similar.
• India
6 May 08
Yeah sure, no probs at all, im not talking about responding to each and every response, but just to respond at least one to show that you sure have read the response, thats all im saying...

Yes, that's what I've been doing since I noticed it. And if ever they are on my friend's list, I remove them. They are only making money, they use you and take advantage of your being a good friend to them. From then on, I carefully choose and add a friend..
• India
6 May 08
Yeah thats right, but its real hard to judge and add a friend, i usually add every1, but few are really not interested in being frendz, just earning i guess...

You are right, people don't pay attention to discussions. They simply answer and go on to the next discussion. I think the main reason for this is that they want to respond as fast as they can(earn money as fast as they can).
• India
6 May 08
Yeah definetely, i agree, thats the main reason. But im among those who really enjoy a discussion and definetly have a purpose and mark them too...

They don't comment to response and don't rate too . I don't response to those started discussion , because I know , those discussion are good for nothing ... Thanks !!!

According to mylot FAQs, we don't need to thank everyone or add comments to any response that we recieve in every discussion we post because it does not increase our earnings. Now if we are satisfied with the response we recieved and we want to thank that person we are free to add comment and thank them and rate them as well. Cheers!!
