hi mylot friends,to day i have spent two hours by searching zero responses for discussions posted in mylot for last 3 days,it is amazing that nearly i have seen more than 1000 discussions with zero responses,why at least those discussions could not have one response,i have given 3 or 4 discussions and send responses to the discussions,joined in new site,send requests for two friends,have you ever observed this tab and find out why they have received zero responses?

Sometimes I check this part with zero responses.Yesterday I found one deep and sad discussion which caught my attention.Now it has one response.Why some discussions get no responses at all?I think we can divide them in groups.The first group would be discussions created by newbies(they don't have many friends on their list, they don't know the rules,etc.),the second one would be discussions that are very long and require specific knowledge,and the third largest group - discussions that don't have a clear message.Could you answer discussion like this:"Have you seen Fiona?wooooow!"Who is Fiona?What's the purpose of such discussion? I remember creating one discussion where I choose incorrect word and it got zero responses.

You've made a good observation about discussions having zero responses. Most of the valid reasons for this phenomenon have already been expounded by the earlier respondents, so I shall not repeat them. But I think there's something peculiar about myLot that also greatly contributes to this outcome. When someone starts a discussion, it is important that that discussion gets people's attention, and that attention results in action early as in responses. With so many members here and so many discussions started by the minutes, any discussion that doesn't get a response will just keep going down the list, and within a few hours, it will be down to maybe page 8 or 12, or even lower down. Very quickly, it will 'disappear' into oblivion, out of view of members, and then these discussions will be forgotten and ignored. Of course the reasons like difficult topic, bad language, discussion not clearly written, etc. contribute to this 'no response' status, and will cause the discussion to disappear very quickly. Also, I think not that many members bother to go around digging for buried discussions and just resort to looking at the top discussions for the day, those within their interests, recent discussions, etc. so they can easily miss the buried discussions that have no responses. This situation perpetuates over and over, and the end result is we get a multitude of 'no response' discussions. That's my hunch and thinking.

I usually check that out once a day and try to see if i can respond to anything, I know people feel bad, and get discouraged if they do not get any responses to their discussions especially if they are new here to my lot. Their are just so many different discussions started in one day that it is hard to get to them all, and their are so many started that are about the same thing over, and over again, it gets boring answering the same thing everyday.

Hi, You are such a careful person to care about such question. I admire it. Yes, you are right. There are a lot of discussions with no response at all or just one response. Among those unresponded discussion, several discussions came from me. I am not sure of why those discussion is not attractive to others at all. Could you share with me your experience on it? Thanks for your discussion no matter if you share your experience and suggestion or not. Happy mylotting!

After checking out my friends' discussions and the discussions from my interests, I look at the "no responses" section. There are many unresponded discussions, but most of them are on topics I and most of the other members are really not interested in - that is why they don't get responses.

My own opinion on this is the posters are newbies who just rush into posting and don't do any research on their posts, spelling is bad, others posted on the same topic the same day ( this relates to no research), People not interested, people asking for opinion on local issues and no one knows what they are talking about! These are the most common reasons! tdemex

That i don't know. I seldom don't search for a topic. The once posted are the very first I respond too. I also not post my own discussion since I can't think of anything yet so I leave it to other mylotters to open up a topic. Since redundant topics are usual here. You can only choose which of the topic posted will you participate. I think that's the reason why a lot of topics are left unanswered. There are already existing topics and the once new where posted and when nobody answered, it will go to queue and be piled up with newer topics. I have a topic which i got a zero response, so what I did, I rephrase my question and post it again till there are respondents who replied on my post. I think the system here for piled up topics should be fix somehow that others might be able to see, without the use of search option.

I think the most usual reason why they get no responses is simply because the topic is not interesting at all. And the fact that most are newbies adds as a factor as well. I have gone through the list and I did not find any interesting topic to comment on so...

yes some time it happens with the me also i dont like to respond most of the discussions that start and sometime i do not get responses. It is really very critical task to pick a very nice and interesting topic to which people feel like answering and get lot of responses.but till now i am getting maximum 10responses for my discussion in mylot. i would love to go for a topic which will make people answer.

This mainly happens to members who are new to my lot,they don't tag their discussion or put it the rite place as they should....it has happened to me also....their are few topics which doesn't get any responds at all....me and some my friends have tried new discussions on gaming ....but most of the there is not a single response ....But after you stick around for sometime your discussions gets comments regularly....
