Have you went all the way back and responded to your first discussions?

When I first started at mylot I didn't really know to respond back to all discussions. I thought that I was to start discussions and respond to others. I'm sure that many of us when we were new were still trying to figure out how it all works. Did you ever go back and respond to all of those? There are discussions that I started 5 or more months ago that I didn't respond to. Should I now go back and respond to them? What have you done?

When I initially started to post discussions I did comment to all of them as soon as responses came in. I do have member reviving my topics to date and even if the topic is one year old I still will comment back. It is never too late to comment back, as long as we do with quality comments. Have fun as sometimes it is interesting and funny to go back and see how much we have grown after sometime with myLot.

Thanks for the different perspective. I agree it would be neat to look back and see how much we have changed, and or our perspective of our life over time. I look forward to doing this as I hope to be at mylot for awhile.

There are times that I'm not interested with any of the new discussions. What I usually do is go back to my old discussion and respond to them. I initially thought that if it will be an old discussion, I can no longer earn money. But I was advised by our helpful friends here that as long as you give quality response, you can earn money even if my discussion is a year old already.

Yeah that is great that we can still earn even from our old discussions. I agree with you sometimes there aren't any old discussions that I can respond to. So it will also give me something to do daily to go back and respond.

Yes, responding to responses adds to the earnings too. I certainly do very much appreciate fellow-myLotters responding to the messages I post, and responding to the responses is a way of showing the appreciation, and besides that would add to the earnings in myLot.

Thanks so much for your input. I appreciate it. I will go back and respond. You also have been here for a time I like to hear from those who have been here awhile and know more about mylot. Have a good day.

Well, your post describes a not uncommon situation! It is almost EVERY newbie today who starts posting like a maniac and not responding at all. Tell us, where does this idea come from? Now, the answer to yet another common question! You can get paid for every quality post that you make. So, commenting back on all those old topics could earn you additional income. There is no time limit. You can comment on a discussion that is many years old! It doesn't matter whose it was, yours or someone else's. I bet you wished now that you had read the FAQ's and guidelines as soon as you started!

I actually have no idea where this idea comes from. I guess like you said we just are in a hurry to start discussions some how perhaps thinking that when others respond to these we earn that way, or we earn more by starting discussions. I agree reading the faq's early than what I did would have helped. And now that those who have been hear longer have let me know that there is no time limit I will go back and respond. I don't have too many old discussions.But this will keep me busy when at times I can't find something that interest me to respond to. Thanks for your help.

I have not tried responding to the first discussions I have started Domnique, but I have tried replying to the oldest discussions that I have started aroudn four years ago. I try to go back to the old discussions and respond to them. I most times tries to bring these discussions back to the front by responding to the replies I get on my discussions.

Yeah it is nice to be able to go back and do that. Especially when we want to keep replying for the day at mylot but haven't found discussions that keep our responses flowing. I enjoy going back. I also like to start discussions and get a lot of responses in my email so that I can keep busy and respond easily. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I appreciate it.

Yes, i do go back to my old discussion, if i am notified that someone responded to it. Just keep on going back to your old discussion to answer them back. They still give you earnings.

Thanks! I will do that. I'm glad that they don't set a time frame for responding to discussions and that they still give us earnings.

Well there are people here like me, who have been members here for about 5 yrs. and I am sure there are a lot of unresolved discussions which in time I need to work on resolving but if I was to respond back to all the answers there I would find many people there that have long since gone from this place. So unless it is a discussion I feel worth responding back too and making alive again, I usually just take time to choose a Best Response and move on. Would have been easier if I could have somehow responded back sooner.
