hello mahesh, i think the problem in your case is that maybe most of your friends in the list dont have their notification ON for you that is why they rarely see you posting a new discussion OR they dont have enough time when they see your post OR they dont find it interesting enough for them to post on it. most of my discussion gets responses from people i dont even have on my list so that is a cool thing. i honestly dont know how many friends i have here but i am very sure it is much less than yours. i also dont know the average responses i get to every discussion i made coz i honestly dont care about it. to me, i post something here coz i want to express myself, if i get a response - Great! if NOT, then it is ok coz teh fact that i get over with whatever is in my head already pays out in my case. how about you? do you always respond to your friend's discussion? what are your reason for not responding? i see you on my list but i dont see you often being part of my discussion so i wonder, hope you dont mind... takecare

hi jair girl, thanks for your response, you are right i donot have notification on for most of my friends and so iam not able to get notifications wahn my friends start, so i am very poor at responses and that may be the result of getting low volume of responses.

hello mahesh, i honestly feel that is the main reason why you are not getting much response on your discussion, you have to understand that some members prefer to be participate to someone who participates as well on theirs so maybe when you get a chance turn your friend's notification ON so they can see that you are an active friend and they will maintain the same treatment when it comes to yours. anyway, just my thoughts and hope you get better responses even if you decide not to turn on your notification. have a good one!

Hi Mahesh, I must admit I have not responded to any of yours lately. I noticed there are some other friend's discussions I had missed too. I haven't been seeing them when I pull up "discussions my friends started" so that is why. I will go back and respond to some of your discussions that I have missed. I don't usually get a lot of responses to my discussions either. I don't start many though so that may be why.

Friends or Friendship is a very precious thing. It takes years for a genuine friendship to develop. I don't want to say that you can't friend real friends on myLot (or other social networking sites), but that as well would, in my humble opinion, requiere many month or years. I have to say here that the term 'friend' is being used differently in different cultures. What in English you call 'friend' in German most of the times you would call 'aquaintance'. But that doesn't sound as nice, does it? So here in myLot (as in real life) you get to know people who share interests with you. And there is absolutely nothing wrong with it, let me be clear about that. I ask people to be my friend in myLot in the hope that, in the long run, they turn into 'real' friends.

I have not counted how many I have. I will say that I try to answer most of the discussions unless I know nothing about the topic. Sometimes I just don't have the time to do it but I try to get to as many as I can.

I have 10 pages of friends. Most of my discussions don't get that many responses. What I think is going to be a good discussion or great discussion generally doesn't go that direction. What I think might be a lame discussion ends up with more responses. Regardless of what happens, it's fun to spend my free time on myLot.

Same her... i have like almost 200 friends in my list... but only a fraction responds to my discussions... but i do not blame them... some are no longer active... some are moderately active... and some just cannot relate to my discussions... I think responding to a friend's discussion is not an obligation... so we have to respect them for that...

Hi MAHESH2008, I have about 90 friends.I will never expect that my friends should respond to my discussion. If the topic of the discussion is attractive and worth responding it is not only frineds but also others will respond.Just because of friends, it is not necessary that they have to respond to every discussion of mine.It is my thinking to put a good topic for discussion, then everybody,including friends will respond. Good Luck.

Well, 300 is a great number. I have 23 friends. Of them only 6 friends regularly respond to my discussions. Sometimes it feels bad that my friends dont respond. But, then its not possible to respond to every discussion every friend starts.

Hi, I really don't know how many friends I have on mylot because I never count it. But like you, only 5 maybe 7 friends respond to my discussions. I try to respond all the discussions my friends started because I think that it is the point on having friends here but many people don't think so. They only care about their own discussions and to earn. Ofcourse that earn is the why we are here and not in another site, but earn is not the only think. I really like mylot and the discussions and the responses. I have fun here and for me it is the important thing. Anyway it don't bother me because it is the net life lol.

I am not sure how many "friends" I have, it used to be on my profile page - but I can not seem to find it now *shrug* There is a good dozen or so that are consistent in responding to my discussions - but it works both ways Many of them make discussions that I can answer as well.

I don't start that many discussions but I try to respond to all my friends. Sometimes I'm too busy and things pile up! You certainly have a lot of friends! Sometimes I have to pick and choose the ones I respond to because I'm short of time, or they may be talking about something I know nothing about.

Quite frankly I don't notice whether my responders are on my friends list or not. I am going to start looking the "discussions my friends started" list more often though.
