Yes, but then i really try to pick the best worded one. It is not always easy, but we have to remember, a lot of us think alike. So these things will happen. Just relax and start another. You seem quite good at it. Keep it up.

I've seen other people post very similar topics, although never on the same day or anything like that. There are just so many things going on on mylot that it is kind of inevitable that multiple people will be thinking about the same thing.

Kind off, but some questions will come up again and again. If you search you will probably find that someone had already posted the discussion before you did, especially as it is a quite general questions.

Yeah, thats normal on the internet. Most people will simply post without searching first.. In fact.. there are forums where the same topic comes up almost every week.. It is a little annoying but its not like you could do anything about it. Unless if your the websites admin..

If you hand around long enough, you'll see a lot of repeats! A lot of them will be deleted by the myLot staff... whoever that is! But I think all the newbies will ask a lot of repeats themselves. If there are enough new responses I think they aren't deleted. Just don't reply to repeats so you don't take the chance of losing the money because the discussion is deleted.

you are right.sometimes they get deleted because they are repeats.but the thing is that i am not that much old now and so got a very few repeats so far... i started getting repeatss now because i am getting a bit experienced here in mylot now and i generally stay away from those which are my repeats

I think in the nature of this kind of website it is possible for someone to take a discussion that you have started and restart the same discussion. The main reason for this is that there are so many people here and it isn't possible to always see all of the discussions that have been started. I've seen some discussions like what I've started that have been repeated, but it really doesn't phase me because there is plenty of discussions going on and not everyone always responds to every discussion.

HI Abhiabhiabhiabhi, Wow...i have to say you have a long name. Haha...Just kidding. I sometimes see similar discussion from mine, but i did not see any exactly same discussion like mine. I will be okay if i saw the same discussion, as long as people enjoy it, i am fine.Thanks for reading and responding my discussions!

There are my discussions being repeated here. But the good thing is that we should never copy it word for word. Better to compose our own sentences hoping that the admins will never delete it. Adding some twist to the discussion is one way to write them too.

Often I will see a discussion I started suddenly get repeated by someone else a few days later and put it down to them not bothering to check to see if someone already had the same idea for the discussion. It annoys me when the discussion actually makes the same points and asks the same question as mine, although don't mind it so much if they make the same points but then ask a different question.

It has happened to me too but I dont get angry because as humans we are bound to have similar experiences and hence we will talk about similar things .I am sure I have repeated other's discussions so it i sonly fair that from time to time persons will repeat mine.Sometimes even I repeat my own discussions

seems not easy to avoid the discussion of repeated, I flipped through the pages but did not see anything unusual and I have been involved in those discussions. So, I am now somewhat reduced rations are not too much to write and check whether those discussions have often discussed or not. When I saw there was the same, ah already been.

I have seen someone a few times, every now and then starting a discussion just like mine. I pay no mind to it, because it could have been a mistake or they didn't know that someone had already started that discussion. But all in all I just don't respond to repeats, because they maybe deleted. Thats my advice to you if you see a repeat just don't respond cause it may be deleted. Cause there have been many of times that I have noticed that I too have maybe responded to a discussion and then a few hours later or the very next day, I will say that someone had started another discussion on a posting that was already started.
