Hi Guys, How do you respect the people who respond to the discussion you started? I always comment back saying thanks and rated them a + if I find the discussion adds a point / value to the discussion. How you do respect? Share with me. Thanks in advance. Triguna M S

I always try to give feedback when someone responds to my discussions. The benefit of giving feedback is it is automatically rated + & the responder gets something that motivates him/her to respond to my discussion. I did not give feedback to one of my discussions recently because there were many responders. I know i did it wrong because i did not do what i always do. But i ranked them positive. Which i think covers my wrongdoing.

I always try to respond to the comments by saying thanks and certainly rate them positive,when I find a good point.It is same as you do.I always try to select a best response,after the discussion became a month old.

Thats really good. But I feel marking as best response when that post is idle for some 1 week. Afterwards there wont be any response so I close it by making best response. hmmm.

same as you, i will respond to them & will give my views too. but by just saying 'thank you' is against mylot rules. like for example, if i have nothing to say or i only got 'thank u' in my mind, ill just leave it blank & dont respond to them at all..

I always reply to every comment on my discussion and if the response is good quality, descriptive I give it a +. I try to reply every comment and possibly rate every response with a +. I never rate people with a minus, even if I don't like the response I will just say thanks but never rate a minus. Thanks!

I always comment back, even if I disagree. I also rate if answer adds to the discussion again even if I disagree. I think different point of views are the basis of a good discussion.

I do not really start a discussion unless I have a reason for doing so. But I appreciate your habit of rating. This is what makes myLot a better place. I did not rate it earlier but over the past few weeks I'm rating replies by others. But be sure, I'm not the kinda personality who prefers to rate things negatively. I do not want to discourage anyone from offering his/her own views in respect of a topic.

Hi, I usually give "+" rate to mylotters that respond to my discussions. I will mark best response too. I think giving + rate and best response are the best way to thank mylotters that participate in my discussions.

Yes I do the same. I will try to comment on each response to my discussions and I rate them all too. I always wait a week or more before I select a best response, to give more people the opportunity to respond before I make my decision. If the discussion is still regularly getting new responses I will leave it even longer. I value every response I get to my discussions and I always feel grateful to people for responding, even if I don't say so in my comments to them.

I always convey my due regards to those who come out with their responses to my discussions. I always feel thankful for their contributions and try my best to post my comments, counter-comments and sub-comments on the responses I receive. Also, I rate every one positive, I do it firstly, before writing my comments. It always feels great when someone post her/his counter-comments on my comments.

Well, with my discussions I have started, I actually am quite behind, and actually need to find some time again to respond back to a lot of them, Rate them, and choose a Best Response there as well. I do not respond back to everyone who responds on my discussions unless I feel they left a Good comment or two for me to consider in there as well. I do always remember to Rate them though, and will a lot of times check out one of their new discussions in here as well.

First, they should not be afraid to response, because all responses are welcome to all my discussions. Second, I thanks for them, just in case I did not provide responses as a thank you message, It is either I don't have internet connection or maybe I was offline for the day. But one thing I sure, I rate them all "+", regardless of response as my appreciation for having their time to respond and sharing their thoughts to my discussion.

I always make it a point to reply back to every responses I get on every discussion I started. Because like you said, it's one way of showing them respect and acknowledging their effort and time for answering my discussions. And most often, I give a + too, I am really so easy to please. ;)
