Is it ok to post same discussions over and over?

I've noticed that some people here on MyLot post same discussions every other way. I don't know if I should do the same sometime. 99% of my discussions are questions that I really would like to get answers to so if I don't get any responses now I might get more luck next time. Would you consider that cheating or you think it's perfectly fine?

I post discussions on the matter i want to know about or anything i need an answer to. What's the benefit of posting it over and over again, unless the first one didn't come up with a good enough answer I guess. But i never do that. I don't know if it's okay by mylot, but for me it's okay.

I never post same discussions over and over again at all. That is not a good idea at all. I think you might lose your rating on that. So I would go on and post new and different discussions as well responding to discussions and commenting on responses.

I am not sure if mylot rules permit posting the same discussions over and over, I think I read somewhere that even two people posting the same discussion was a thing that was frowned upon. My opinion is- if the interval between the two postings is sufficiently long, then maybe it makes sense re-posting the same discussion to get a fresher perspective. The situation could have changed-for example a query about a politician before and after an election. Why not contact mylot and find out?

That might be right considering things that tend to change or even if they don't change,the people do. We get new and different users here every day and their responses could be very helpful. I'm not planning to bore anyone with the same stuff but I might take your suggestion and ask the admin:)

Well, there are people on here Yes, who have started a lot of the same type of discussions all of the time. Sometimes you find others who maybe just change a word or two of their own discussions each time just trying to eatn a little extra on here. But for me, I hope no one ever thinks this of me. I too try and keep mine to what is really going on for me in my everyday life, and not try to repeat too much too often unless I feel it is something of importance. But these are some Good thoughts here for sure. Wishing you the best.

I do not think it is a good idea at all to post same discussions over and over. I would not do that at all. Just post different new discussions. I think it would be cheating to post same discussions. You might lose your rating over that.
