well, there is many possibilities why some discussions get no responses. maybe they : 1. are not interesting, 2. are not inviting others to respond, 3. are too difficult to respond, 4. are too easy to respond, 5. are posted in the wrong time, when most users are not online. so they are thrown from the first page of 'new discussions' before getting a single response. 6. are offensive discussions, 7. are one-line discussion, 8. are started by the users who never comment on the responses to their discussions, 9. are too personal, 10. contain unknown languages or words (you know, sometimes there are discussions which the subject is : xbydkr, and the description is also xbydkr). how can you respond such a discussion?

Even I, have some discussions that has no responses and I feel a little sad. But I need to understand why because not all of my discussion seems to be interesting. Other interest was focus on their likes and moods. Today they feel happy so they prefer to look that soothes to their taste. If somebody needs to seek advices or seek some answers to their problem they go to some discussions that is almost the same to their point of interest.

One of the main factors is the topic under which the discussion has been started. When choosing the interest under which the topic is being started there is a number indicating how many other members are interested in the same topic. The more the members the more responses one is likely to get. Atleast that has been my experience so far. I have of late always been getting anything between 20-143 responses for my discussions.

A good number of them are from new members that aren't really sure how things work here, so they type something about any old thing that comes to mind, a lot of the time it not even being a discussion, but more of a statement. If new members don't have any friends and post in an obscure interest area, no one will even see it, so they won't get any responses. When I see those, I direct them to my profile to read the articles I wrote that can help them.

Well, a lot of times it might be a discussion that someone starts here that ends up in the No Response area either because they just started it, and none of their friends have seen it yet, or it is a discussion that the right type of people have not seen it yet as in the time of day, or night it was started, or it is a discussion that people cannot relate too. I feel it also can be maybe the person is new(er) here so people do not know them, to where there discussions are just overlooked more as well. But in reality, you may never really know as well.

Hi ya yadav8797 I can tell you why I sometimes don't respond to some discussions but I don't know what other people's reasons for not responding would be. I don't respond to some discussions because I simply don't understand what some people are actually talking about, sometimes I don't respond because it is a silly question and sometimes I don't respond because it is not a subject I am interested in or want to get into.

I think you need to have more catchy titles in order to make the eyes popped out the moment it appears on the screen. But of course the discussion should carry some weight to excite the reader and make them want to response to it. I am not a good writer but fortunately I have never experienced not having others responding to my posts.

fail to put the discussion in the right place and the topic is not so attractvie, or from my own experience, a discussion which can not be understood clearly receives few responses. so we need to put our opinion clearly and directly.

I think you are much interested in starting discussions rather than responding. Right??? When you respond to your friends discussions regularly, they will also respond to you regularly yar. Spend some time for that also. Then just take care of the time when you start the discussion. Start the discussion when you feel that many people are online. You will escape from no responses. Hehe. Lol. Happy mylotting. All the best.
