Hey MyLotters! Why do you think discussions posted here in Mylot starts and ends with a question?. Most of the posts that I've seen and read here in Mylot starts and ends with a questions. My posts too, mostly starts and ends with a question.. The reason why I start and end my posts with a question is to generate response. Because, if post a question people who will read it will find ways to answer it enabling your post to generate response(s). For you, why do you start and end your post with a question? (not all of your posts of course). ^_^

You should always ask a question because that is what invites discussion. A page of information isn't a discussion, it is simply a statement. The best questions ask for an opinion or information. They generally begin with What, Where, Which, How, When, Who, Why - all the 'WH' words (except How). The title of the discussion need not be a question but it probably makes people want to look at the discussion more than if it is a statement. Note that questions like 'What color are your eyes?' or 'Do you like chicken?' don't invite discussion and are called 'Poll type' questions. It is against the guidelines to use MyLot to ask such questions.

Well, generally it is, since you would like to generate thoughts right? There you go, a question. LOL. A good discussion must start with a good question, an open question that is. People can easily relate when it is a question that applies to everyone or a universal kind of question. But I still see people who does share their experience or show something who does not necessarily post question, a very rare case. But intelligent discussion should have at least a question on it.
