Hi, As I journey through Mylot reading, writing, and responding to articles or discussions I have notice that many people are very popular and have hundreds of friends. I started thinking about how I would support that many friend's work. Someone would surely be overlooked, unintentionally, of course. If you have hundreds of friends how do you respond to all their discussions. I have tried to be creative, by responding as quickly as I can, within a day. If a person has made a comment on my discussion, I respond and then I immediately go to their discussions and choose one to commit on. Sort of "tit for tat." or you read mine, I'll read yours. Another way that I support my friends is, I will go into my friends area and do up to ten responses from my list on one day,then pickup where I left on the next and so on. I want to be a good friend here and I want to find good friend here. So, tell me my friends Myloters, how do you support your friends?

I have less(49) friends in mylot. Eventhough it is impossible to respond to all their responses, and to comment on their discussion. I am trying my level best. You have 500 above friends, how can you manage them all?

Hi rameshchow, I know it difficult to respond to everyone, but just going with the ones that are in your inbox is a great way to stay current with the friends who are supporting you and in turn you support them. Unfortunately, I don't have 500 friends here. From the responses that I get on my discussions, not too many are supportive. Those that are there are probably from when I started and then became inactive for a long time. My fault if they decided to delete me. I am starting fresh. A few is better than none.

ya, here i wanna ask you two doubts. 1)our mail inbox is filled with full of messages(our friends started discussions) who are never give responses for us. I mean why should we have to give reply to them, and how can we overcome this mail traffic problem. 2)many are not supported our discussion, some are directly oppossed, really they don't read our discussion patiently, just pass their random comments, those are really hurt me, what can we do for this.

Hi Angelgirl, When I was very active I used to manage to answer all discussions posted but these days I will answer from my inbox when I have time or if I am online having posted a discussion have another tab open and answer as many as I can from my friends started list, I also will try to answer a few from new user as encouragement and a few from no responses too. There are some friends who you become particularly close to and will pm if you haven't seen any activity for a while to make sure they are ok. I have been blessed in that I have met many of myLot friends in person too and they have all been as they are here, warm, caring, kind people. Huggles Ellie :D

Hi o0jopakOro, We all have busy lives. Some part of these lives include working many different sites, and that can be very difficult to keep up with everything and/or everyone of your friends articles. So, I know you will do whatever and whenever you can to support your mylot friends.

I give my friends’ discussions priority as they pop into my in box and when I finish those I will look for others. If a friend has made more than one discussion I will endeavour to go to all of them or at least one which interests me. I do the best I can and there are times when life will not allow me to be here as much as I would like and I do get behind and I know my friends understand; we all appreciate that it is a lot of work to be on top of everything at all times. Having said that if a friend starts a topic that I cannot contribute to I do not hesitate to skip it.

Hi Paula, Making discussions in the inbox a priority is an excellent choice. I think, in order to keep current with the friends that are responding, like you, that is the best way. I have been opening split pages, one into my email account so that I can see all the actions from my Mylot account. I also open my mylot account and just flip back and forth until I have responded to all in the emails.
