What you prefer? Posting new discussion or responding discussions?

Dear Mylotters, How you spend your time in mylot? Do you spend much time in posting discussions or responding to discussions of your interests? I think posting new discussion is easy than responding discussions. Because responding discussions is less in number than posting as we need to think a lot to post a best response. This is my view. How do you feel this? Whats your thought on this? Cheers

I spend most of my time here in myLot in commenting. So it means I'm more of a discussion poster than a discussion responder. Like what you said, for me, starting a discussion is easier than responding to other's discussions. Because in your own discussion, you don't need to think much in commenting since it's your topic and all responses are all related to it. Not like responding to different discussions, it requires more thinking coz your mind will deal in different topics. Actually if I will be given a time duration and count the number of responses and comments that I will make. I will definitely make more comments than responses. Aside from that, I am lucky enough to receive many responses that's why I'm very thankful that what I just needed to do to earn here is commenting and posting a discussions. The only negative thing in starting your own discussion is you won't be able to get best response mark because you are the one giving it. Lol! Happy myLotting!

I seldom respond to discussions. Receiving a "BR mark" is really a great achievement and it gives a great feeling to me. I appreciate it. Thank you very much! Have a great day! Happy myLotting!

I usually responds and comment on discussion but I rarely start a new topic. For me I find it difficult to think of interesting topics to talk about, that's why I rarely start a discussion . But whatever I spend my time here in MyLot, I always make sure that I enjoyed what I am doing .

My preference is to start a new discussion,since it feels great when people all over the world respond to your question or query and share there views on that particular topic.But,if the discussion is good then it's also feels good to give my point of view to it.. happy myLotting..

Hi If we just post a discussion..then there will be no one to response to our discussions...i feel its better to post and also to respond to other other discussions..as u said just reading discussion is less in number posting..if we keep on posting discussions whose gonna read them.until and unless some one respond to it...i feel we need to post and as well as read the topic and respond to it..

Hi phillip ,I feel its meaningless to have discussion without much participation.I wont to and love few,simple and really meaningful discussion.I prefer responding more to discussion than posting new.For me the ratio is- start 1 Discussion : respond to 5 discussion. Then I also have to rate them without forgetting. thats my way happy mylotting

Hello philip, I do both,i started topic when i had something in mind interesting to post with. I also respond to discussion that i feel interested with,mostly i responded to topics that i can truly relate with becoz i always responded based on my experiences and what i feel to that topic.It is so easy to respond to a topic when it is reality based from facts of life. And i don't respond becoz i want to earn the best responce,if given the mark,that would be a plus factor,if not,good enoug.

I love responding to other's discussions. If I find that the topic is interesting, I like to put my two cents worth there. I'll post a new topic if I am inspired to do so. I dont just post topic for the sake of posting it. It must makes sense too!

Well personally I just reply to whatever seems interesting. It seems like so much more of a hassle to think about what I want to talk about with everyone.

Thats nice of you to post a response in this discussion. Have a nice day. P.S: You might have read and heard that posting unwanted links is prohibited in Mylot. There is a penalty for it. Also they will be banned. Sorry to say this. Enjoy the day

Hello friend, I write the link by mistake. It should be "avoidscam". You know here. Once you submitted, you cannot edit it. So pardon me for that mistake. I don't think it is banned, because this is a common mistake. It is not purposely inserted but due to typographical error... But as I read on the guidelines and FAQ I did not encounter if links is that is mistakenly or have error being enter will be banned? Hope admin, of this sites understand it. Because are not perfect but sometimes committed a mistake... Have a great day!

Sorry friend, I too committed the same mistake of posting some personnal refferal links when I was a noob. Though I got good responses, the discussion was removed from Mylot. I regret for my mistake... Anyway my suggestion is not to post links irrelevent to our discussion... Cheers.. Enjoy Mylotting....

I like responding to many different topics. It helps me as a writer, and also helps to build more relationships. Owning a web site is no joke, lol. It helps to have some sort of down time. Mylot is that down time for me. It is fun, and as a result I get into talking to many different people a day, and I love it.

I like to respond to many different types of discussions. They are all just so filled with life. To be honest I have no doubt that mylot has the potential to completely REPLACE myspace, and facebook, maybe twitter as well.

I will normally have 1 discussion per day to post, and I will spend more time responding to other discussions. I am not very good in posting discussions, and therefore I prepfer responding to others.. I will give priority to my friend's list first for the topic they start, and slowly move to the others.. :)

I prefer responding to discussions because I usually just go through the my interests and todays top and respond to those every now and then. I also respond to all the interesting titles in the mylot digest. They tend to pile up in my inbox because I don't always get around to checking my email.

For me it depends on my mood. There are days when I am happy just responding to what is in my in box and leaving at that. Other times I like to browse through the site and look of interesting discussions; on days like this I am usually here for quite a long time. Of course there are the days when I wake up with an idea and cannot wait to start a discussion about it. It varies although on the whole I prefer responding I guess but it is only fair to contribute both.

Since being here at Mylot, I have mostly responded to discussions such as this one that I open from my Mylot Daily Digest email! I just read through the email each morning and respond to the ones that I find interesting! Some days it may only be one, but other days, there may be six or seven that I feel like I have an answer to. I also scan through the discussions tha my frriends here have started. I find answers to other peoples discussions flow into my mind easier than starting my own. I have started a few of my own and as I am typing this, I just thought of another one to start, so I will go and do that soon!

I spend most of my time at mylot responding to discussion. I do start some discussion once in awhile. It is easier to start a new discussion but if you fine some discussions you know about then it is easy to response them.
