As i experienced something for the last month when i worked in mylot.. But i dont know im right or not. Sometimes i starts some good discussions with good topics but responses are very poor. Somebody claiming that receiving responses wont earn u money. Even money is not matter for me but i think i need more popularity in mylot to get my topic attracted to more peoples. I think people having more friends or having more reputation points are receiving good responses as they are popular among their friends. How can i get popular here and i want to reach all peoples here how can i be ?

I am not sure that I am popular as I really do not have any intentions here of being popular. Although I do get a lot of responses in the few discussions I do start, one thing though is that when I do start discussions many remember me that I too participate in theirs and recall my quality and helpful opinions so they repay with the same in mine. One key thing that is important since you want to continue to further your discussion with lots of responses, is that if you do not comment back to most and or all you responders many will remember this and not continue to respond in future discussions. See many do go out and research to apply the most helpful information to discussions and if the discussions starter does not comment back how can the responder be sure you are even reading the efforts they placed. Look at discussions like conversations amongst friends, where no one want to talk alone. Good luck and believe me this does help as when I was new many of the veterans conveyed this to me and I cannot thank them enough for helping get to where I am to date.

Yes nobody wil response alone . Responding back is a good conversation i always do that but i need more work to make my discussion as conversation. As i think how can i manage if i cant respond back to them in a correct time in which time they respond in my discussion.

hi naseemkum how can a lot of responses earn you money do yoy get oaid for someone else's work at your job? no a lot of responses willnot give you any money as you are expected to write a comment to each one then you will earn nicely?Its not the responses so much as your commenting on them that will make a nice discussion really great. its not a discussion until you comment back contributing your input onf the others response. get yourself noticed here by us by responding to our discussions. we then say "Oh that naseemkum is really great at responding to me, I am going to look up his discussions and respond to him or her. I may even ask him or her to accept me as a friend. yes having friends helps but most importantly doing quality work not two word sentences and inane meaningless gibberish like textese using U for the word you. jUst just good English.

Yes hatley ur correct i wont get paid for others work. But since my discussions getting 10responses minimum as i responding back to all my responses. If im popular and had more friends my single discussion wil reach 20responses then i wil purpose to respond to that 20 then i could learn and earn more from that.

Thanks hatley madam to suggest this but I always try to comment back on my response. @Naseem PPE is also telling truth you should send the friend request to more persons. I have lots of good friend so at least 30 to 40 response I received on maximum discussion. Mostly my discussion is funny so more mylotter interested and I am maintaining my own unique way start full week discussions on only one interest

With my experience naseem, most of the topic I posted were responded by other people, not the ones in my friend's list, although there are some who are responding but not all.....response to your topics, i believe, are done by the people who got interested on your topic, maybe at the time of posting those people who could be interested were not online....when I browse topics, i check first on the "my interest" tab.....then I will go to "new" tab, then i will go to "friends started" tab. In my case, I do not log in to my lot regularly due to my busy schedule. So there might be topics that interest me that could have been posted during the time that I was offline. These might be the reason of the poor response but remember that the topics we are posting will stay here and would not be deleted as long as it is of quality content. Members can still respond to them no matter how long they were posted here.

Just hang out here all the time. If you do, more and more people will get to know you. Plus, don't change your avatar too often so people will get accustomed to it. Another thing is be nice to everyone here. There are a lot of users who don't know anything else but insult people. Just don't let them get on your nerves.

I always be polite among peoples whom i meet here. And from now this time im decided not to change my profile picture because people wants to be familiar with my face. Its a good idea if people likes my face they wil respond to my discussions often.

I think popularity and attracting responses to your discussions are two different things. It all depends on the the topic you have started and if people can relate to them. I have over 400 friends on my friend list but the maximum number of responses I have received for a discussion I have started to date is just less than sixty. Sometimes your discussion may get buried among other discussions and people may not see it to respond to it. So I would suggest that you get a lot of friends on your friend list and start discussions that people are very likely to relate with and respond to. And hopefully if the discussion is started at just the right time when the friends are active then you might get all the responses required and your popularity would increase.

Yes im planning to get more friends so that i can get good number of responses. As i believe if i start a unique discussion it wil increase my popularity among those peoples and they look after my discussions and responses back.

Just be friend with much people and make an eye-catchy discussions. Because when you are making a discussion, your friends would be notified by email . And I think another key to be popular here is "time." Person who already being myLot members for 1 year++ is being more popular, I think (yeah, their discussions and responses always trigger another veteran and new myLotters to give comment back!) And also, you need to stay active and always give a positive responses and feedback. Well, since a key here is "time", so I think you need to be more patience to get more popular

Yes ur correct but members dont know that. Members who had good star rating and good reputation points and members who had more friends are receiving good responses in their discussion even their responses are useless stuff.

Yes i had decided to add more friends but my doubt is whether they wil accept my request. I think if i add old members i would be popular here because they had more friends in their list.
