Including this one... i have started 248 discussions here in mylot... that is only a fraction of the number of posts that i have... well, i prefer to respond to discussions than start my own... and everytime that i do... i usually give a comment to all responses... Do you know how many discussion you have already started?... it is quite difficult to determine since there is a glitch when you click discussions i've started... there is a tendency to see a lot of pages... it took me quite a while to figure out my number... and it is also difficult to describe how...

Wow thats some discussions! Mine are very few maybe 10 or a few more! I answer discussions from my emails first they take up most of my time! I like to hear from my friends and find out how they are! I do posts sometimes.

Well, judging from the number of post near your user name... you are still a greenhorn in mylot... and you have a long way to go... but i like the fact the you respond to discussions more rather than starte them... some new members do it the other way around... thanks for the response...

It is that others have interesting posts! I can never think of anything to post about and when I check someone has already done it? lol

As you can see from my number I am a big poster but I have only started 28 discussions since I joined in February. All my discussions have had responses, some of them have over 90 responses but most of them have fewer than that. I would just rather spend my time responding and I will start maybe one or two discussions a week, if I think of a good topic. I would rather do that than start hundreds of discussions and have many with no responses.

I have been a member of mylot for more than one year now... and i have seen a lot of discussions that fade away in the background... mainly because i was started just for the sake of starting a discussion... that is why i prefer to respond and comment to those who responded to my discussions... thanks for the response..

Hello aseretdd, It is weird...your previous discussion that I responded just now showed me another member's avatar as yours and for this one, I didn't see any avatar. But when I pressed to respond, your avatar is still the same.... Okay, back to your discussion here! I never check how many discussions I had started here. I don't really into it as I find it hard to find a topic to start with. I bet mine is lesser than average members who have been here for over a year *smiles* Like you, I prefer to respond instead of starting my own discussion. I am more interested to read other people's discussions...

I guess, the mylot admin has not yet fixed that avatar glitch... it can really be very weird to see a different avatar all of a sudden... i don't create discussions on a daily basis also... and that 248 now 249 discussions... is quite low compared to other active mylot member... i enjoy responding and commenting more... thanks for the response...

In my opinion... it is best for new members to respond to a lot of discussions first... rather than start a lot of them... that way... they will be able to learn the in's and out's of mylot properly... so i think you are on the right track... thanks for the response... welcome to mylot and i hope you enjoy every minute of your stay here...

That is a lot! No, I have never counted mine, but there are not that many. Maybe I need to start a few more.

Everything that is good is always prone to abuse... it is up to us who understand not to do that... i also love the freedom that we are enjoying here... even with the censorship of the mylot admin... thanks for the response...

I have probably started 15 discussions. Responding is easier that starting a new one... chances are, it has been started by someone else.

I agree with you... i find it hard to start a discussion since most of the ideas that i have were already started here... i try to think of unique discussions... sometimes i am successful... but sometimes i am not.. thanks for the response...

I've started 28 discussions since I've started here. I've only been here about eleven days though. I prefer to respond to discussions more than starting them. I don't know how to get people to talk.

sorry aser i am late to reply this discussion but i am trying to response all discussions from my email notification. i am out for more than 2 weeks that is why i am late to read this post. i response from the oldest to the newest. anyway, my total discussions as of this moment are more than 1500 for six months posting. this means that i posted more on my friends discussions than posting my own.

That is very nice of you to catch up on the old discussions... and i think you are very active in starting discussions... since you already have more than 1,500... in my case... i prefer to respond and comment rather than start my own... thanks for the response...

As of today I have started 85 discussions, but I believe there are some missing. I vaguely remember having more pages listed at one time in discussions I've started than I do now. The way I came up with this number without having to count each discussion individually was to count how many were on the first page, which was ten, then count how many full pages I had, eight. Then once I got to the last page I just counted how many were on there, which brought my total to 85

There is a glitch in the number of pages... mylot usually puts more pages than the actual ones... when i first check mine... there was a total of 35 pages... that that would lead to like 350 discussions... but when i check each page... i found out that the actual number of pages is only 25... well... it is quite complicated... thanks for the response...

Well, most people I am sure only have like 10% at most of New discussions compared to the amount they have replied too, with some more than this in average, and then the ones with less than this as well. I know mine would be at the most 10% as well as it is hard sometimes to come up with a new discussion or topic I want to talk about. I do know I go thru spurts with this as well. Personally, I have never counted, and not sure I want too, but I know I have started quite a few.

I have encountered some members (newbies and some oldies) who have more discussions started than their number of responses... and i just do not know how they come up with the ideas... but some are just oneliners... which is like a no no here in mylot... counting the number of discussions i made is like a challenge for me to start coming up for more ideas... thanks for the response...
