Why doesn't anyone ask any thought provoking questions?

I'd like to read something with a bit of substance not just what is your name or how old are you!

is that how you racked up such a high number? I can't seem to. I'm so selective.

Quick and easy responses don't mean you get paid much though!

You are a comedian. Seeing the lighter side of things can't be all bad.

I do think some of us do tend to post topics that are more in depth. Check out some of my topics, you mind find some you like. I think the ones with the quick response questions are just trying to do quick posts, in order to increase their postings and earnings. Those of us that are not here to make a quick buck tend to be a little deeper with our topics and our replies.

But don't you make more money for answering in depth questions?! Surely Mylot aren't stupid enough to pay out for single words answers!

I don't think that we need provoking questions but I would say that we need better questions to answer in general.

Check "discussions with no responses." It's where all the thought-provoking questions are. People who ask the silly questions get all the answers. At least, that's the way it seems to me. Ask, "Am I pretty?" and you'll get 257 responses. Ask about world peace and you might get one.

Okay. I am new to MyLot,and I hope that I am not being out of line by sayng simply,that YOU should ask some thought provoking questions. That would,IMO,create some thought provoking answers.

I agree but when i post something asking peoples opinons very few people reply to them so i basicly try to stick only to relying to discussions people have already posted

I would love to see some thought provoking questions too. I think a lot of questions allow for opinion writing only, but still, it is great writing... it makes us think...not just when we write a response but also when we read the responses of others.

yes, me too. but most are finding it hard to come up with a good discussion that is original. How many discussions have you stated? I will go take a look, OK!

you can go to my profile and check out some of my posts and feel free to answer them. I am trying to come up with a new Brain teaser. At least mine don't ask how old you are or what do you like to drink. HA,HA, feel free to browse.

These questions are out there, I keep trying to start more in depth discussions myself but I think most people find it easier to answer the simple ones so they appear more prominent. Best thing to do is just to favour the more in depth topics and slowly the balance will shift.

I think far too many people don't actually have anything more interesting in their minds than questions like 'When is your birthday' or 'What is your favourite colour'
