I know you must and can do both. But I just was wondering which gives a better return based on your experience. Is there a way to know?

I think that discussion have the potential to earn you more than a response because your earniing increase with the more responses you get.However I think with responses you are sure of a payment for just posting a response ,I dont know if the same is true with a discussion ,so responses are a sure way to earn ,discussions ,I think are more dependent on responses .And oh lets not forget that quality component.I suspect that a quality response may earn more than a discussion especially if it has no responses.

Ilove to start a discussion because it is easier and gives you 80% of 20% effort. That is Pareto's rule. Starting a discussion could give you 80% return after you have spend 20% of your effort. But responding to discussions can give you just 20% return with 80% effort. I hope my analysis is clear? Just think about it, this is logic and is correct. cheers!

You said that starting discussions earn better. Can you elaborate or enumerate? example: 1: you don't have to look for the appropriate discussion to contribute to because you where the one to start a discussion which you are familiar with. what else?

i suppose a combintaion of two would be the best... one-- responding to things put u on an active part....increases your earnings.... and puttin up new discussions are also important because of the sustainability and survival reasons of the website.... good and most viewed discussions would definitely benefit I guess...

let's assume you only have to pick one. Which would you choose and why?

My educated guess would be starting a discussion. I just think that in order for this forum to continue and to thrive off the popularity, it needs discussions. I don't know for sure though.
