All here try to start good and intersting discussions, who maybe will receive more or less answers. And of course you will answer to good topics too, if you know and like the topic. But my question, is if you like to start one discussion in a day and take 100 answers, or you feel great with 5 discussions who will receive let s say 20 answers each? I ask this question, because i saw here peoples who have great discussions and take a lot of answers. even they start just one dicussion in a day.And i ask myself what secret they have? One and very good..is really great. i made a statistic. in my own discussions. If i start 5 discussions, one will be good, and take over 20 answers, one get just 2,3 answers, and 3 are medium, can take 20 answers. But what is strange, not all time respond same peoples...well are few who i apreciate who answer almost all time,but persons are different. i want to know really the secret ...how somebody can start just one discussion and take over 100 answers? Is a secret? is inspiration? intuition? talent?

I choice 5 discussions with 20 answers. Because i use to have many discussion to make. I started posting a discussion only 4 or 5 persons reply on my topic. I'm struggling to have members to reply on my topic. In 1 with 100 answers its very hard. But there is no impossible in here mylot. Because the population here is more than 170,000+. There is no secret in open 1 topic and take over 100 members to answer. For me its inspiration. The person who replied the topic have the same feeling who open the topic. They sympathy each other. They are been inspired by the topic. Hope i can make a topic and more than 100 members will reply on it.

Hi Ice. I prefer one discussion a week That's all I usually do. Last month I started 4 discussions and so far this month only 2. Then I spend time commneintg back to all those who respond on mine and go and respond on their discussion to. I make long comments on all my dicussions and many come back and respond again on the comment I make over and over agin - they respond again, I comment again, many times and we sometimes get a small dicussion going on inside the main discussion itself. Thst is how I preferit. I do not like starting many discussions and not having time to comment properly to those who respond.

So you like to transform a short discussion in a big one, with many comments, again and again. Is intersting, ..you see, you are a old member here, and you have good friends who enter in your "game" and give you ocassion to make this...but for who is new is hard...maybe later i can do this too. and your advantage is that you speak English very well, and can make jokes, with just 2 words...i can t, even i understand, i can t answer with right words...and all is just a story, not a joke...any way, you are one who have a great succes.

We were ALL new once ice It comes with time. You will gain friends too as time goes by and if you can have friends that are here like you to discuss things and not just to have a long list without helping each other, then it will 'happen' for you too. I spend time responding on other users discussions, even by new users (as you know) and especially the new users who are trying very hard to do well here. I even go to profiles and find discussions, even older discussions, with no responses and respond on them. The user is appreciative and will ask themselves 'who is this?' and will come to your discussion in return and friendships build like that too. But it takes time. It will happen to you I'm sure! I also 'barge in' on comments without actually responding, just leaving a comment. Maybe you could try all these things to rathers than starting more new dicussions evry day. Just realise that if you stick it out and do not give up then you will be here when the older Lotters are even older

I prefer 5 discussions with every 20 answers with it. I have had such post and I am very lucky to be getting it. But I have post with only 1 answer too. It is all a matter of interest to the others.

I would prefer five discussions with twenty responses. Because, I like to start some good discussions. I manage more than five discussions a week so it's not much of a trouble. And 100 answers for a discussion is not impossible. It can be achieved. But it takes time and patience.

I would rather have 5 discussions with 20 answers, because it probably is in different topics, which may interest other people later, but if you had only one, people would start getting bored of that one... So, my decision is the 5 discussions with 20 posts on it! =)

Hello icesmile! Well, I choose to have a single discussion that has 100 responses. That would be a great achievement to mylot members. To make this happen, the discussion must remain in the hot list because it can help the discussion to receive a lot of responses by other members. If you have many friends, maybe most or all of them respond to you if they find it to be interesting. Maybe luck is also a factor. This is my view to your topic, happy mylotting and have a nice day!

i will choose 5 dicussions with 20 answers. if you start a dicssions, and you have 100 responses. that will wait a long time. and if you start 5 discssions you may quickly have 20 anwsers. i don't want wait a long time. and you may earn more if you start 5 discussions.

That will depend on what you want out of the discussion. Sometimes you sincerely want to find out the answer, even if only one response, and that single comment helps you, then I think you achieve your objective. If you want to start a discussion purely to reach payout every month, starting one or two discussion in a week, and attract more than 100 responses is good enough. You can spend time just replying to all the comments, give thanks to everyone who respond to your discussion. in this way, you maximise your time, since you do not need to surf different postings, you can save a lot of time this way.

Hi Icesmile, I think i will choose 1 with 100 answers. I am lucky that i've have one. But only one though. I also got 1 response to my topic sometimes. The answers' quantity is just depends on the quality of your topic.

I don't start discussions too often. I find myself much better and enjoying responding better. But to be honest, when I do start a discussion, I am happy with it if I get 10 responses. So in answer to your main question, I would be really happy with the 20 responses to 5 discussions. As for the question of how to get 100 responses to a discussion, let me know if you get a good answer to that one.

I also have the same question in mind like you. Why is it that some members here were able to generate more than a hundred in just a single discussion they started but then some (like me) gets only few responses. One with the maximum number of 10 responses. I do not know why but maybe it's due to the fact that some or most of my topics are not interesting or just maybe some members here were done answering similar discussions. Anyway I also do not know the secret behind getting more responses. But if I were to choose I would rather get 20 responses with every topic I start than getting hundred responses with a single one. For me getting at least 20 with every topic you started means you are good. Getting a hundred response with a single topic means luck. You were only able to catch others attention once because of that. So for me 20 in every topic is better. Anyway I guess that is just a dream for me because as of now, that I have been here for 6 months I have not gathered more than 10 responses yet. My minimum is zero and my maximum is I think 10 or 11. I just make myself busy with responding and responding to earn more.
