Congratulate me, I finally got no response

I've noticed that the number of responses that I have got has decreased, so I've not started many new discussions for some time. Most of the discussions that I've started have had around 5 responses, with a few in double figures, however, the last one which I started a couple of weeks ago, has (until now), had no responses. I guess that a) it wasn't worth posting anyway, b)I must be pretty uninteresting.

Awee naw don't say that lol how can people consider you uninteresting... i checked your profile to see what topics you posted they ARE interesting just maybe your luck was when your discussions were on the top of the new topics list people didnt have knowledge as to what to add... keep in mind people are still in pretty heated discussions over the elections.. the outcome... and what they think will happen... no matter how paranoid some of those predictions seem lol don't fret ;) if i see you posted a discussion i'll try to respond... ;)

This was really written a bit tounge in cheek. The number of responses is not really important. These days i prefer to reply to other discussions anyway.

Hi Eskimo, I must have missed that discussion. I haven't been here on a regular basis for the last few weeks and I am currently playing catch up on all my responses. I can't understand why you would get no responses, I always find your topics very interesting. Must take a look at the discussion, although you have probably got some responses by now.

Don't be too dis-heartened by not recieving any responses as there are several factors which affect how many users will actually reply to your discussions. For example the best time to post a discussion is around 15:00 when people are getting home from school or on the way home from work and will be logging on. The amount of friends you have is also a fairly large factor as these members of mylot will see your discussion quicker when compared to those who are not. Posting discussions in topics which have alot of members may also help make your discussion more well known. I know in the past the discussion I have started have very rarely made it over ten respondents...so I much prefer to respond to other discussions than start my own.

Mant times in the past I wrote what I thought was really fantastic content,only to discover that not one person wrote even so much as one word in response.I ofcourse felt terrible about this initially but later said to myself,..."Its just one of those things" and I soon got over it. You will be amused to know that I once wrote a 3 part "series" entitled "Aliens" in MyLot. Now I dont know why I did it,I guess I felt all creative and "Hollywoody" Heres the laughable part,I put in part one, and got no responses,then I put in part 2.......you guessed it,not even one response..I dont think anyone even bothered to give it even a cursory glance.You're right.....I did'nt post part 3,as it was by now a useless piece of work.What advise can I give you.? Just keep at it, and never be discouraged.!!LOL!!

Welcome to my club.. I have started a few discussion and the latest one I got was 5 responses.. Now I'm also losing my interest to start new topics. Maybe people out there just not interested in what I wrote. Well for your topic now - I see you getting quite good response. Good luck to both of us - I think both of us need that.. Cheers

Hey send me the link and I"ll give it a response. That happens to me too. Sometimes it's not boring it just gets posted at the wrong time and the right people don't see it!

you're not alone eskimo, so you need to congratulate me too. At first, I felt bad too. I felt I'm not interesting at all and I make boring discussions. But as time goes on, I realized, what the h*ck, lol. As long as there are responses, it's ok. If I have none, better try again right? I only have like almost 300 discussions, most of them were responses to other discussion, so instead of having this insecurity, I'd just reply to others and so I could still earn points. For sure this post of ours would earn a lot of answers, keep it up buddy!let's try harder!

Yes, I feel I am boring too. My iscussion are bad though. I will look out or yours and check some out. Some discussions today ae bad also on here, yesterday they where great. I might add some more interests or something. Well hope you get better responses in the future. I have one with none too. It is about new asthma inhalers, so I guess no one has asthma or it bores them. Well take care.

I guess it's bacause some people have been noticing that their earnings had been decreasing. To be honest, I had noticed it as well which sucks and it makes me feel like I dont wanna post here anymore.

I feel sorry to you but hope you'll keep posting here. Your not alone here, some of my discussions thread here doesn't attracted much responses and maybe one of my discussion here doesn't have a responses too. But i never lost hope and i keep posting more quality discussions and discussions that attracted mylotters here. So i wish you luck next time you posts here you will get lots of responses. Cheers.
