Quality Posting

Can anyone tell me how or what everyone means by a 'quality posting'? I keep hearing it but am not sure how a posting is or isn't considered to be a quality posting? Is it the length? Does somebody look through all of these and grade them? Sorry, I'm new here and am just slightly confused! Seems to happen quite easily lately!

A quality post has to be at least 5 sentences long, preferably longer. You have to thoroughly answer a person's question in-depth. Your post needs to be well-written and helpful. It needs to completely answer the question. As far as somebody looking through all of these and grading them, I have NO clue! This is a LOT of Discussions to go through and grade each and every user on each and every post that they have made in one 24 hour period! I don't know if it is a computer program that does this instead of a human myLot Administrator. It almost HAS to be a computer program. I just can't imagine any other way of doing it! :)

Indeed, it is a computer generated algorithm considering the bulk that it has being handled and that is the reason why they would ask us to help them in locating those violators. I cannot disagree more of what you have said and that is very helpful and well said. but you know what, I have tackled this one before in detail and it has been a good discussion in a long thread from one of my new friend, at that time, and the next thing I know.. it was gone. I am hoping this discussion won't follow.

A quality post is usually one in which there is some substance to it, pretty much like the one you posted here. Posts that just say "what's your favorite ice cream?" are not quality posts. This rule also applies to responses. One or two quick words is not a quality response.

The system seems to be set up to count the length of posts, but it doesn't check for quality or anything else. Any grading is done by other members when they rate you, and that will show up in the number of your star when you reach 100 posts. I'm sure about the counting because I deliberately posted only long posts for a couple of weeks, and got much more money than when my posts were shorter. Read the discussion carefully enough to be able to respond intelligently, don't spam, and you'll probably do fine here.
