Do you always get a lot of responses on your discussions that you started?

Well, I don't always get a lot responses. Some of my discussions, yes, they get a lot of responses, but some others don't. I'm happy when people respond to my discussions so I want to start a discussion that will attract people to respond. But it's getting difficult nowadays because most likely, the discussion topic that I want to start has already been here. I noticed, however, that one or two members here always get a lot of responses. So I was thinking that those members were really genius bringing up attractive discussions here. Oh how I wish I could be like them... Well, what about you? Do you always get a lot responses on your discussions that you start? And how do you feel when a lot of people respond to your discussions? Please share here. Thanks..

Some discussions get more responses than others. I think it depends on the discussion subject matter, and how many of my friends are under that interest.

I don't attract much people to response to my new discussions probably I'm still new here and there are still a lot of things that I don't really understand. But I learnt one new thing that earnings are based on what you post and not how many people responded to your discussions. So I think I would just keep on responding to other people's discussions until other people said otherwise.

I am like that as well. I only get a few responses these days. On my first year in myLot when I was still very much into creating discussions I was also lucky to get a lot of responses for them. Sure some might not have more than 20 responses but getting almost to 20 is a wonderful thing. It was also a challenge to think of new interesting trivial topics that would get attention from myLotters and illicit a great response. As time went on, and being busy with offline things I just ultimately stopped creating new ones. I just made it my mission to help out those old discussions that didnt have any responses, that is until after Im able to respond to all my friends started discussions that interested me. I guess those myLot members that get a lot of responses are those who knows how to capture the others' interest or they were just respected by all because they've been here since the start and have helped a lot of myLotters grow into the site. That's just what I think anyways.^_^

Some of my discussion weill get more than others, as it all depends on the discussion itself and if it was interesting enough that users wanted to respond to it. I am thankful for the responses I have received as it is sure better than nothing. I really don't start all that many discussion, as I would rather post responses to discussions as it is much easier. It is just so hard to come up what a good enough topic, one that other users will be interested in responding to. Posting responses doesn't really take all that much brain power, so that is why I respond. good luck to you and happy mylotting.

This does not happen always with anyone I guess. I get response for my started discussion on an average. Its not huge number but I do get response. I can feel that everyone has their preference and choice of responding the discussion. I like something and at the same time others like something else which I may not like. So that is fine not to get many response, I can see response to the old discussions and that is ok.

There are a couple of discussions that I do have a lot of responses and there are those that are receiving only a few. Well, I do not really do not start a lot of discussions. Mostly of what I do is respond. But I do feel happy where there are a lot of responses on a discussion that I start. It makes me feel that the subject I have started is very much appealing to everyone.

that's a good question, well i am fortunate enough regarding my discussions because they all received responses from fellow mylotters. that is why i am so thankful to them because even if it was not that much responses but at least somebody interested to share his opinion about my discussions.

I just post anything I like. I only get two or three responses but I just don't mind it. I don't even have a lot of friends here. Maybe when I get longer and I could get a lot of responses from my post. So, for now I just busy myself respond to discussions that interest me. There I can have fun. Say what's on my mind and earn. That's my plan :)
