Do you find difficult adding comments to all the response you got?

Specially when you have more than 25 responses to your discussion. What would you do? Would you add comment to all responses or just give comments on selective ones. I prefer to give comments to all the response but it is difficult. I have now 3-4 discussions with more than 25 responses and I am not done yet with all of them but if you are responding to my discussion; be assured that I will add comment to that.

Good question, thank you for this discussion. Yes, I certainly do find it difficult to respond to all responses in my discussions that receive more than 25 responses. I do try to comment on all responses. As well as rate. Regardless. It takes time, sometimes days, sometimes weeks. I have two now I am in the middle of responding to in this manner. One with 60 responses and the other has 30 so far. It is a task but I will be on it and have it all done. Eventually I will comment on each and every response. It is the least I can do for those who took the time to respond to my discussion. When I post a discussion it is because I am sincerely interested in feedback. I want to know what other's have to say and am so grateful for responses. This is what makes MyLot work and helps me earn money therefrom. Best to you here at MyLot and in 2009. look forward to your comment :D

Yes, until when I didn't recieve more than 7 responses to my discussions, I was praying to God that I get more than 25 responses for my discussion. Now, I have 3-4 discussion which has 25+ responses and I couldn't answer all of them. Now, I have decided that I won't start a new discussion until I comment all of them Thank you for the response.

You are very welcome and thank you for your comment. That is a great idea to not create another discussion until you have responded to the responses for you more popular discussions. I agree. I am not done yet either but i will be, sooner or later. Best of luck to you on your end. Cheers.

Yes, I needed that luck indeed. I have not done yet and it is a tough job. Even if I decided that I won't start any discussion, I start 5-6 in last three days. This is making my job a lot tougher because I want to respond to other's discussions too!

Commenting on a response is an integral part of a discussion. There is no point in starting a discussion if we do not take the trouble to comment back. It shows that you do want a discussion, not just to increase your ratings. A simple 'thank you' is sufficient even though it would be better to have a few other words. So far I have not found it difficult to comment back except for one person. I did not know what this person was and I 'stalked' this person to find out more. Turned out this person is not that bad. Your discussion reminds me that I have not made any comment to the response that this person gave though the intention is there. all the best, rosdimy

I like commenting back and that's why I have now stopped creating more new discussions and would like to give thanks to all my mylotting who gave me such honor by responding to it. So, rosdimy, which person you are talking about?

Let the identity of the person be unknown. I do not think it is important. If you really want to know dig up all of the discussions I started and read each response. I did respond to this person's posting and received a comment which was not deragotary or insulting. rosdimy

Rodimy, you are really confusing me. I mean you read the discussion and respond to it. You read response to your discussion and add comment to it. Where is the need to know more about the person's identity? I am sorry if I am being rude but I didn't really understand your post.

I try my best to answer each comment that I get. I often go back to the discussions to see if anyone replied to my reply It is a bit of work sometimes, but worth it.

Yes, it is a bit of work but it always feel good when someone gives response to my discussion. I feel that My words were important for someone so, I need to give respect to that person too. I think it would be rude if we don't add comment to the response.

I have had a few discussions that got alot of responses...I try to comment to each one, if I get a slow time I go back and look to see if anyone responded to my comment or if someone else had added to the discussion if it hasnt been posted on in a few days. It is a lot of work, but I feel if they responde to my discussion then it is worth the effort to let them know that I have gone back to read it.

Yes, I hvae the same feeling. If you gave effort by responding to the discussion then this is my duty to add comment to that so that you don't feel bad about me and do come back for my other discussions too!

Not really. I average 1 to 2 discussions a day so i can easily track new responses then comment on them without really cramming. As much as possible i do give comments on all responses but sometimes i don't because there are times that the response is what it is. I do go back to my discussions whenever i see no discussions to respond to. Sometimes it would two days before i can respond to them but i'm just glad they're patient enough to reply back.

That is same to me but when I get 15+ responses or more, then it becomes a problem. I have most of my discussions pending the BR option. Many of them are just waiting for me to reply back.

Yes, I always have that problem when the discussion goes that far. Sometimes it because the person doesn't put enough in their response to actually comment on, other times its because a responder says something that someone else has already stated. I do my best to respond to each one, but when these things occur, I don't rack my brain to come up with something to say.

That happens to me too. I mean we need to make justice to the response as well as our point. Sometime, I don't feel that I say anything to that response. I just leave that too the next time but be assured that I try commenting each and every response I get :-)
