I do not want to be annoying

I do not want to bother nobody or violate any rules of myLot, but I have to say this. Everytime someone answers the discussions I have started I need to go back and say something to them. It is a respect that I give to people that took their time to read what I wrote and give me their comments. So, I will always answer them back and rate them. Feels so bad when you are not appreciated for your time and ideas. Maybe Mylot could put a little button there saying "Thank you". For me it is an acknowledgment to the good people who took their time to read my discussions! Sorry ....

I think that it is simply good manners to acknowledge a response. So I, concur with you! Sometimes it will be two days before I get back, but I always do! Thank you for sharing your thoughts! Rainbows!

dotn be sorry that is a good point that you have there...i also do that posting comment to every respondent in my discussion with the same reasons like you have..since there is a rule that needs to be follow what i do is not just thanking them but also commenting a little on what they wrote...and that way they will not think that i just read theirs and thank but they will say that i really put time and effort to understand what they wrote by commentting on it, not only thnking them...well they wouldnt say that i am not follwing rules ayt?

Thats a good idea.. i am guilty of not responding to all of them because i have so much other stuff going on at one time. i eventually get to them even if its not right away. Very good idea tho

I completely agree too. I have only just joined over the past couple of days, and have tried to get back to all that have responded to my discussions and in most cases rated their response too. As you say, if people put the effort in to read what you write, then a few manners back goes a long way. Luckily I did this from my first post, so have got into a good mylot habit, judging by ours and other opinions I have read.

Thank you for agreeing! Yes, I feel empty if I read a comment and do not say nothing to the person! Welcome to MyLot!

Hi Valeria, I will always respond to every response I get but with more than a thank you as I don't think we are supposed to do just that but I will comment on their comment they have made in there response to my discussion and within that I will say thank you. It sometimes gets the discussion really flowing as a discussion back and forth but to see additional comments we are not notified so I go into my started discussions to check for. Ellie :D

It is true Ellie and I go back and forth all the time. I just love when people write back to my discussions, show me that I did something right! LOL

I think it is a good idea. I guess it is the issue that is why many users could not provide responses if they need to say Thank you only as an appreciation to the responders.Well, I do rate them anyway if I didn't provide response as an appreciation, in the maximum If I was impressed with the answer, they you owe a Best Response from me.

Yes that is the point. I rate them also but I like show that I read what they said. It is just me, it makes me happy.

I agree with you. A 'Thank you' button would have been great but anyway it does not speak of your views on the replies. So, some comments expressing your views may be required.

Even if I do not respond back to everyone that has responded in all of my discussions that I ever start, I do find myself reading all of them. For me, if I feel a responder would only get a Thank You back, and since we are not supposed to respond with just that, I just move on to the Next person, and only respond where I feel is needed or appreciated. Just my thoughts.

When I do that I show to people that hey! I read what you wrote. And I think they feel good, because they write back to me. It is just my opinion!

hi yes its only good manner to answer our responses but valeria sometimes weget swamped with things andcannot get back for several days so to all who aree upset with me I am doing the best I can to respond to your responses but give me a break. i have been ill and am still recuperating so am slow getting things done here. I also have quite a few to answer so it takes time when I start doing them.

I agree with you. I don't start a lot of topics here on mylot, but I do respond to quite a few, and I always go back to see if my comments were replied to. That to me is the point of having a discussion and is respectful.

There is a "thank you button" it is the + and next to it was the "that was rude button" with the -. You also have the "you broke the rules button" which is the !. I think a lot of the time people just ignore those three little buttons.

I always respond to people that answer my posts. I feel bad if I don't like I never bothered to read their request when I actually did. I don't want people to think I am posting random things just to make money and do not care about their opinions. I like the communication back and forth. It makes you feel like someone's listening to you and your feelings.

I agree that an appreciation for responding to your discussion should be made, even when words don't want to come. However, thank you is not accepted. I am not sure on the rule exactly, but I do think if you mention something and then write "thank you" it is okay, but adding something extra to it. I always say I appreciate the response because not only do I really appreciate it but it makes it longer and I think that it's better then just a simple "thank you". Adding flare to a discussion is always fun. Beautyqueen26 has a discussion where she offered advice on what to put when "thank you" isn't enough. Do not be sorry for making this discussion as I feel that it's a very nice discussion.

I am flattered, you are very kind and I appreciate the compliment. I am glad that you do add more then just a simple thank you, but I think even adding something more can prove to be difficult. I think that it was beautyqueen26 that had made the discussion, or she may have just responded to me with ideas. I've done so many discussions here!

I admit when I first joined myLot I didn't always do that, mainly because at the time I joined I didn't have a lot of time to come on myLot. If you look at my number you'll see that it's very low considering I've been a member for about a year..lol, and never even had a payout! Now I try to make sure that I always respond when someone takes the time to join a discussion that I started, even if it may take me a few days and I'm even trying to go back to some of the really old ones and respond. No need to apologize, that's a good thing.

Dear Valerial, it seem that you disappoint with some of the user in mylot. For me whether the say thank you or not its not a problem because i always set in my mind that they already say thanks went their post to my discussion but anyway thanks for sharing your problem.

I always check my discussions and acknowledge each and every one of them. There are times when I have nothing to say other than a thank you. So I do put in a few words more. I feel a thank you button would be too informal and everyone would just end up saying thank you and nothing else.

I agree with you Val everyone needs to feel that they were heard. If I say something and do not hear or see that was answered I will keeep going with my question until I get that answer. The same with a simple - Yes, thank you, ok!

Wow. This is a such a very nice idea that we can suggest to mylot. Having that thank you button will definitely acknowledge the people who answered our posts. Giving comments and ratings are also great things. I like your idea although I must admit that I tend not to give comments back or rating. Kudos to you.
