I have experienced this in many discussion...By seeing the topic,i will rush and i find nothing interesting there...Finding a good topic is a skill and it really works... First Impression is the best impression - its really really works here!! Now,i strongly believe in this!! what do you think?

Yes, the title absolutely does matter in that it is what draws people in to read the discussion in the first place. Of course that doesn't guarantee that they will respond, but it is guaranteed that they won't respond if they don't open it! I mention using humor in the title in my articles with tips about myLot. The articles have helped a lot of people. You can find them on my profile.

yeah... title really matters as my approach in responding to is look and read first to the title which look appealing or interest me so that i can have a clearer view and comment to the discussion.. having a very clear and direct yet informative title can help capture the attention of fellow mylotters to respond to the discussion that you started and also only the title is shown once your in the home area or the index page of the site...

I agree that the first impressions are the best. It works that way in life as a rule most of the time. I like to go to a discussion topic that stands out such as your own. There is just something special that can jump out at you and then you are more eager to tackle the question. It does take some time to find a good topic and when you find it there is more likely a chance you can be more descriptive in your response.

I think you also have your point in this matter of discussion that sometimes it is pretty obused that we will be attracted with the Title because first impression last and so it did but when I will open the content of the story although the Title is so nice and when I rad the content inside and there is no relevance with the story then for sure I won't reply also.....
