Do you have some discussions you started that are over 4 weeks and have no responses yet? I have quite a few and I was thinking maybe there is a way it can be reintroduced to the site without copying and pasting it to a new discussion because it is not allowed. I am not saying all but some of the the discussions I started are unique and a good one. What about you guys, what do you do? Do you just let it be?Just Curious, SFC

Really, the only way is to get someone to respond. That happens to all of us once in a while. The way I do it is to ask a friend who is a member to make a response, but only if it is old and it is pretty obvious there won't be any activity on it. If they have one too, I offer to respond to theirs if they respond to mine. It usually works pretty well. Good luck.

Some time we just do what your doing, letting people know that you have some discussions that don't have any reply and some one will be nice enough to go to them and put a response on them. I have a couple that got lost during the upgrade. So right now I'll go look at yous and see if I can respond to them.

I also have the same response. Most people in my lot tries to create new discussions rather than responding to others. I think this nature should be changed. Because if you don't participate to others why do they join yours?

well there is nothing much we can do about it. if only i can delete it i would really do. but i think this can be a good reminder that we should not open a discussion like this one anymore. it can be a good lesson. then if ever you get a discussion with a lot of response you can compare both and see the difference and you will know the answer why that discussion is full and that discussion has none

I don't think I hae ever had that problem. I just leave them there and see what happens. They are not doing any harm by bieng up there. Maye some new connecion will take an interest in my writing, and go through my back discussions and respond to them. Who knows?
