Do you respond on every discussions if your friend started more?

India
November 19, 2011 2:53am CST
I observed most of the people started more discussion at a time like 10 to 15. I respond only 2 to 3 discussions even if they are my friends but I cant respond on every discussion because other people discussion is also important. I am maintaining my way what you think you are also doing this if your friends started more discussions respond only on 2 to 3 discussion or on all discussion. I think we all have no more time so respond on more discussion is hard.

I also agree with you umabharti madam. We cannot answer all topics. Wherever we are comfortable or strong only those topics we should answer.

You are right-- we do want to respond for our friend's discussions. However I answer only those discussions with which I am more comfortable. For example today you have posted some other topics-- I find this one convenient to answer. Besides availability of time --interest in the topic is more relevant. have a good day.

yes. Other topic you have started -- I felt odd to post on that discussion. I thought you are like a child. Child only will tell immediately. So whatever topic comes to your mind you start. Instead you can think twice whether there will be good participation and then start. We should avoid some embarrasing topics.

I don't respond to all my friends started discussion. I just respond to discussion which caught my interest. I don't think it is a requirement by mylot to do respond so I decide which ever discussion that i think i can share something on.

Many people come here thinking that starting discussions is the way to earn here. Accordingly, they often start many discussions without properly understanding the Guidelines and, as a result, many of them will be deleted. What you should do is know the Guidelines yourself, be aware of discussions which are likely to be deleted (if the discussion is a clear violation, you should also report it), and don't respond to those because it will simply be a waste of time. As a friend, perhaps, you might PM those people, explaining why their discussions are likely to be removed. Educating our friends, especially our referrals, is always a good thing! You should also only respond to discussions, of course, where you have something material and useful to add to the discussion.

Yes this is right when people started more discussion then some discussion is deleted. I started only 1 to 2 discussion daily and specially regarding latest news like World records or funny incident. Thanks to suggest me and yes sir I am following this way if I feel this discussion may be deleted then never respond it because now I remember all rules because read again and again.

It would be nice to start 10 - 15 discussions a day. I could only start 2 or 3 because I can't always think of some interesting topics. Most of the time I respond to topics that interest me, not necessarily started by friends. Happy mylotting!

I also started only 2 to 3 discussion in a day not more than that. I also not check the name of person only see the topic is interested or not.

Why would you want to start 10 or 15 discussions a day, neelia_lyn? Unless you can maintain those discussions by commenting (or replying) to the people who respond, you won't earn very much at all by doing so. Most people who understand that MyLot is all about 'quality' will not be able to properly maintain more than just a few discussions at once. It depends how long you have to spend here each day but I would suggest that three or four good quality discussions a week would keep you fully occupied (with responding to other discussions as well, of course) and would actually earn MORE than starting many pointless topics which don't ever encourage anything of quality.

It would be nice if I could, but I couldn't, owlwings. Because if I did, maybe only 2 or 3 will get attention or responses. I would have to spend the whole night (not much time during the day except weekends) attending to those 10 or 15 discussions started if ever they are of good quality. Anyway, your suggestion is much appreciated. Thanks!

Hello, surekharathi! I always have the same question to myself. Do I need to respond to all discussions started by my friends? As much as I would like to, I cannot because I don't have enough time. As of today, I have 11 friends but to tell you honestly, I have never checked all of their profiles yet. I think it would be better for us if we will devote one day for a certain task. After attending mass tomorrow, I'll be checking all profiles of my friends and I'll also be posting responses to some of their discussions that would interest me. On Monday, before I go to my appointment, I'll devote my time awarding the best response to each of my post. You gave me an idea. Thank you! Every Sunday, it would be my priority. Every Monday, I'll choose the best answer. On Tuesday, I'll upload photos. Wow! This is amazing! Thank you again. How about from Wednesday to Friday? Well, I'll think about it.

HAhah....friend I was started this topic 3 months before full week on mylot and daily sepreate work but it was unsuccessful because everyday new discussion so responses is also necessary but it is impossible respond on all discussions. Dont check their profile only check the home page or your inbox then respond on the discussion.

I would really like to check their profiles because I want to know more about my friends. Anyway, don't worry. It will only take few minutes because I only have 11 friends. You already have 397! It's impossible for you to check all of their new discussions, really impossible LOL

hi! it really depends whether their discussions interests me. if not, i don't have a choice but not to respond in their topics. as much as possible, whenever i answer a particular discussion, i want to share my very best point of views. i want to express my inner self and also to help others in their query to the best that i can.

Hi Surekha... You don't have to respond to every discussion... Look, participation requires two things- interest and knowledge! If you have both of them for a topic, then go ahead; no one is stopping you. It is not, however, mandatory to respond to every discussion. Good Luck!

The discussion of friend started get deleted is usual problem. The most important is to never response in which you think the discussion you are going to response will then get deleted. I do make response to every comment on my post but not all discussion which is started by friend, will be responded too.

yes you are right. its not possible to respond to every discussion started by a friend which would then defeat the purpose of the site- earning by having fun. So just respond to the topics you are intrested and keep having fun :)

much as i would like to respond to each and every discussion i see, i find its not feasible nor is advisable, unless you do have the time, the interest, and the capacity to answer all without compromising the quality of the responses you make. so yeah, i guess when i do have the time, i choose to answer those discussions that somehow struck my interest or is a field which im most comfortable or feel that i do have something to contribute to the discussion thread

I also want to respond on all discussion but time is less and some time no discussion related to our interest.

Hello Surekha, To respond to each discussion started by my friend is almost impossible because i get notifications for app 50 discs daily. What i do is respond to the discussion which interest me and on which i feel that i can contribute. Of course i give priority to the discussions started by friends but i also respond to other's discussions if they are of my interest.

Hello surekha, It's okay not to respond all your friends discussions. I usually make a response on them whenever I know their topic or have something to say. There are a lot of interesting topics here on which we can participate and sometimes we tend to miss others. I am sure everyone understands if we don't see our responses on their topics.

Hi bhabi.. i give priority to my friends discussion but it does not mean that i follow each and every discussion. There are some friends who start several discussions in a day and i never catch all of them, just pick up one or two. Sometimes i avoid those discussions where i cant relate myself at all. Otherwise try to follow. Take care.

If there are too many discussions from a single mylotter I may respond to a couple of them and keep the rest of the notifications in my inbox. When I am free and have the time then those notifications come in handy for responding.

Well, it is hard to try and keep up with all the discussions that my friends on here are starting. Since I am also trying to keep up with the Discussions that I am starting and responding back to them to try and resolve all of them, this takes time as well. So personally I do find myself trying to post back to my friends when I can, and hope everyone understands.

I will usually look at all the discussions that show up in my email, but I only respond to those that are of interest to me. I find that many of the discussions are of topics that have no relevance to me. It doesn't matter that they are six or seven months old. I often check in with the people to find out if the situation has resolved or for some kind of update. Right now my mylot folder has almost 1200 discussions and digests in it and I finally have time to go through some of them. I hope that all is going well for you! Have a great weekend!!!
