I am starting to think that I shoould make my respones to discussions more strecthy and more descriptive. I think by doing this, it helps me get the full money out of my response. Do you think it is this way? OR is short answers that just answer the question right away better? short answers saves time but do you get more out of mylott if you make long responese? Please post your thoguhts and thank you for reading and answering.

Well dear according to me write longer or short response but your answer should be clear and have meaning and have quality also see if you think that in short you can give good and meaning ful answer so what is point to write whole story to show that your response is longer ok

Yeah but most of the time the longer your responses are, the more quality you give into your responses. Unless you just fill them with fluff. Thank you for replying.

Pointed, cryptic responses make more sense to me. Long winding responses are, generally speaking, likely to fall flat unless someone is expounding on a subject. I always lose patience reading longer responses which can bet cut to a few lines without missing the point...!

Here it is definately about the Quality versus the quantity if you are wanting to earn the Best here. Even if you can only spend an hr. here each day, it is best to post back to 10 discussions a day with longer quality answers, than 25 with short answers, as you will end up earning more for sure. Even when starting a New discussion it is Best to remember quality over quantity and finding a discussion topic that others will be interested in responding back too, is a Big plus as well. So even though it may take longer if you can remember just a few of these tips, in the end you'll see better results and feel a lot happier about it too.

I stsrted to make long sentences and responses that have quality in them yesterday. Ive only answered around 5 yesterday with long in ddepht answers and man!, my earnings went up. What I earned yesterday would probably take me 2 hours before I started making my responses at least 2-3 sentences long. Thank you for replying.

Posting long responses does help earn more. But it really depends on what I am responding to. I have written paragraphs after paragraphs if my response needs to explained. In other cases where I do not need to elaborate I keep it short. Like in this one I have given a short response.

hi stevensitu in between responses , they should really be about five or six lines long at least but you do not need to write two pages for one response, common sense should dictate here. you do not get paid for one sentence responses or comments as a rule, so make them at least five or six lines long,you do get paid for that you know. I have sometimes made a longer response if I had something really helpful to write about. but too short ones are a no no.
