I dont quite agree with having to pay special attention to discussions friends started. The friends list is no indicator of quality discussions.Anyway to accept someone as a friend it will take months and not days but here one hardly knows each other and we happily accept them as friends. I go by what interests me and never by what my 'friends' have started. What about you?

hello there! i also respond to my friend's started discussions as long as it interests me and as long as i have something to say... i set my notifications on to some close friends that i have here so that i can follow whenever they have new discussions... but it doesn't mean that i always respond to their started discussions...i just prioritize their discussions whenever i am browsing for something to respond to... but most of the time, i usually respond on discussions that interests me regardless of who started it...

I responses to my friend discussion and to those who i could recall have participate in replying in my own discussion. As a sign of gratitude to those who make an effort to notice my discussion i could not promise to reply on their discussion. But, so long as i encounter their names. It is then i could reply on their discussion and i also check the quality of their topic.

Generally, I will start out with my home page and see what my friends are up-to on my lot. If they are on a particular subject that interests me I will join them. Depending upon the quality of the discussion I might decide not to participate. I find this a fun place to start. Then, I pretty much will check the general discussion, what's hot, my interests, threads friends started. Sometimes if I am not a big mood to read through lengthy posts I'll go check the thread that has discussion that no one was replied to yet. I look at it, I might find something brief that I want to reply too and may discover a new subject I like discussing. I think around here it is good to take a diverse interest in things. Check it all out rather than just one small sector of the site. That way you will learn, make friends, and discover diversity.

i also agree. not all here are our real friends. now i have 89 people who are waiting to be my friend in my friends panel. i don't usually approve immediately people to be my friends since honestly we barely know each other. are they affected if i will deny them as friends? just a thought.

I'm actually quite opposite of the way that you are. I tend to give the discussions that my friends have started more importance then the other discussions that are here because of the fact that I know the majority of the time my friends are also going to respond to the discussions that I have started. Most of the people that are my friends are such because either I or they found that we were frequently responding to each other's discussions before we requested to be friends with one another.

"Most of the people that are my friends are such because either I or they found that we were frequently responding to each other's discussions before we requested to be friends with one another. " This statement of yours says it tall. You decided to include your friends after some interaction but that is not the case with most here!!!

Hi, allknowing! Well, i'm still quite new to MyLot so whatever discussion i am able to answer or what interests me, I'll answer. :) Yeah, i do agree with you that it takes a while in real life for someone to become friends. However, small children can become friends within minutes and that's adorable to see! So, may i ask you a question? I'll ask anyway. Here in MyLot, do you accept everyone who sends you a friends request?

Hello allknowing me to often do get attracted to the discussions started by my friends here at mylot, but many a times have to skip it due to lack of knowledge, experience or interest in it.Well i do give first preference to the top discussions, then the friends started ones, and then go through some of mine interests.I don't feel anything odd if i don't respond to an friends started discussion.But what am concentrating on is the knowledge, experience and interest about the subject of the discussion, and not by whom its started.Well am enjoy the discussion on mylot and responding them int he best possible manner. Happy mylotting.

allknowing I have been here for quite awhile and i know my friends and they are on mylot friends list and yes I do go to them first as they are really close a lot of them and I feel i' do owe them a lot. they respond to my discussions so I feel I must do that too.of course I pick what interests me as always and then I go to other discussions and its always what interests me and what I might add to. happy mylotting,and Happy New Year all knowing.

I too answer discussions that interest me.. I have added many friends.. But only some of which I have a lot in common with. If i look at all the posts that friends have started it may take me a while to find those posts from those few friends with whom I share common interests.. So I mainly got through my interests a see what I can find. And you know what.. ? the interesting discussion I find ARE usually the ones my friends started. LOL But I answer all first based on what I feel interested in responding to on that particular day. Some days I am just not in the mood to respond to certain topics. So I just surf around until I find something that catches my fancy.

you are right..I too never have a preference to the discussions started by friends..It is more interesting to find good discussions when you browse through the site..I have set on the "notify" menu for few of my friends..I just have a look at the discussions that I get in my mailbox and check them or respond them if I find them interesting..
