As to me I have never got more than 10 responses for a discussion I started no matter how interesting the topic was. This is a secret which I have yet to find out. What about you? How many responses does your discussion get?

I am looking for the secret as well I usually get between one and six responses to any given discussion. I have had two or three discussions that got over twenty responses. Sometimes, what we are interested in or found interesting is not to other people, so they just bypass your discussion. I have also found that it is not because of how many friends you have. I have many friends, but I guess if they are interested, friends or not, they do not respond. Wish you luck

The first time i was here i got more than 10 responses. It even became the top discussion of the day, but as time goes by, I only have few discussion who made 10 discussion. I'm really wondering how to make more than 10 responses. But i think it really depends on the topic where every member here can relate too. Also, the more exposure your topic has, the more responses you will have.

Yes I did! I think the secret is to keep your question simple, so anyone is able to understand the question, and it's as well important that many people have been through it, or experienced it. I've got in one day on my discussions 35 responds! with the question; how do you feel or what do you do during a blackout! which everybody ofcourse has been through at least once, and they can share there experiences this way with others! I think I did quite well with making that question! So just keep it with a simple question, which many Mylotters can answer, and you will get surely more then 10 responds on it!----

I have been getting about 20 to 80 responses on an average for my discussions. Probably because my discussions are simple. And then there is a lot of matter that can be posted in the response. Very often I find discussions where we cannot answer in more than a few words. These are discussions that do not get much responses.

i have two discussions which has 10 or more. another one will shortly corss that mark. i feel the secret is to get the kind of questions that prompt people to jump to actions. i have seen that in many discussions i personally participated. i dont know why i went in and participated. your subject should have the ability to attract people to come like magnet attrracts iron dust or nails etc.

Don't feel bad. Half of my discussions have more then 10 responses while the others have eith 0 responses or very little. Its just that there are so many people here on mylot that start new discussions all the time that will knock yours back to where no one can find it and respond to it. Maybe people don't think that it is interesting like you do. Who knows why people respond to certain discussions and not others. But everyone on here in mylot probably has discussions that have less then 10 or no responses at all. So don't feel bad man.

There is no real secret. More exposure will get you more responses. More friends will get you more exposure. Simple! I explain more in detail how all that works in two articles I wrote. You can find them on my profile.
