I heard that you don't earn from mylot by using one line sentences.. but don't you think certain replies are best when they're short and simple?? I know it says "be descriptive as possible" , what do you think?

welcome to mylot. I remember some members use to rightly tell: Type more and earn more. It is correct.

ucha14 it is easy to earn if you decide to do less and do less much better, quality is the key word here, not quantity.Mylot does not pay for one sentence anythings you must flesh out your writing to make it meaningful

If anyone were to search out all my responses and discussions I’ve created you would find on the whole or say 95% of them are positive. This response will be an exception. My negative comment is not a mylot guideline, it is my own personal opinion. Many people are here for one reason and one reason only, to make a dollar. This sets the stage for short two liners answers. Some do not even read the discussion but why should people read them anyway because what has been put up is a short answer that is boring and functionally mundane. I am not saying that is the case in this topic or everywhere but is a general observation. I think a better way is not to look to what is the proper length, one liner, two liner, three liner or whatever but to gauge the response to the discussion and make something of quality, short and concise does work well in some cases but in others more explanation is needed or desired. I like to make my points understood so they tend to be perhaps too long.

Welcome to mylot. I hope you are from Philipines. To be brief is a good thing. But in mylot we are expected to be descriptive. this does not mean we can write that is not relevant. We are supposed to write relevant matter in a descriptive manner. In fact this point was discussed earlier also. I usually write three or four sentences only for any topic. But a few others are capable of writing more. We can write more on any topic if we have answer --HOW,WHERE, WHAT, WHEN, WHICH, WHO-- relating to any topic.

but all the short and simple ideas can be elaborated so that all the people around the world who has different standards in english can understand. so you can not always say its bad. and i dont know whether they dont pay for one line sentences or not. but being descriptive or being short lined doesnt make a big difference. all depends upon the quality of the response

Yes. that is the idea. Some people can understand only when a matter is explained in detail. Quality of response should be good.

shame on you bobo these people from different countries that have English as a second language are far from dumb, not understanding all our English words does not make an intelligent foreigner dumb by any means.They learn as they go. You probably studied English in school but some have not so be kind to them , don't call them dumb.

Yes, I agree that you should keep the replies to a discussion really short and concise. That way people can read it really fast. I think Mylot wants to make us work for the money they are paying us so they require all the postings to be long and lengthy so you can make the money. I think it also helps to weed out the people that don't put much effort on Mylot.

But not ALL people do one liners that are irrevelant , just because some greedy people do one liners for the sake of getting a comment doesn't mean that people should rate us down ;)

read the guidelines. one liners are not paid so they just waste their time when they could have expanded and not been so damned lazy.

Thanks Hartley. I am now wiser...no more one sentence communication. I must admit that I did not read the guidelines in entirety...I just browsed through them and got into business...but now I know better...quality and not quantity is the key

I'm going to say this and it's probably going to ruffle some feathers. But one line responses add absolutely nothing to the topic and you're just better off not posting at all. And it is a royal pain in my own backside, when I manage to get around to responding to comments on my topics to try and get a decent response out of a one line response. GIVE ME SOMETHING TO WORK WITH PEOPLE! Granted, there have been times where I have somehow managed to twist out a response to a two line response or one line response, to about two paragraphs, but when I have a set length of a response in my head, I'm going to respond in that many lines, length of your response short or long. There is a system to my badness. Short and simple responses to my topics frustrate me beyond belief. Then again, its likely going to be a while before I post any further topics but still...yeah...not a fan of one line responses.

hurrah megamatt thats exactly what I wished I had said. Those one line nothings drive me up the wall. I feel like saying it this is all you had to say why did you bother with it." Yeah me too" is meaningless to me and it says "I am to lazy to bother giving you a real resp onse. If I did I might have to think" lol.And folks that might be a really hard task too. lol

It's true that some questions posted here can easily be responded to with a single-line answer. Yet, I think that the being descriptive part most times can really start of a discussion which is first and foremost what myLot is all about. Expounding on your replies may also help others that read your response understand what your point. We're not all native English speakers here and sometimes a one-liner response may not be that clear to others.

I don't know if we earn or not with a one line sentence, but sometimes it makes sense to give a one line comment/response, depending of the context. I agree that a short response can be a better response than a one page response.

NO.. I don't think that any response should be that short.. one of the reason is that people will misuse it.. then there is the quality of the discussion that also matter.. if a person is just entering one line response he may not be answering the discussion correctly.. even if the response required is yes or no.. you can always add the reason to it..

I wouldn't agree with you that the quality of a discussion would depend on the length of a response Suppose you buy 1kg of oranges blindly , there can be defective veggies (maybe too much) , isn't it sometimes good to select the oranges yourself and buy it and if that shop sells fail oranges , you might need to pick the least ones Considering such situations , I think you should probably limit to one liners at certain discussions

It is true however myLot wants us to elaborate more on and be specific on what we are talking. MyLot wants us to use our minds so that we can make our mind work. That is how myLot rewards us. Don't be too lazy writing only one line. MyLot knows.

I just simply keeping it short and simple. However, a lenghty discussions or comments with a great concept and of changing illustrations for each issue is a nice touch! 1 liners though is oviously a reason for the discussions to end up lost in a sea of responses.

one liners are allwaz not best and simple. many a times it happens that a sentence means many things it depends on the person who is reading and the one who is writing.It is not possible that both are thinking in the same way. so i think; as the mylot says to be descriptive is to give an opportunity to the writer to convey the message in the best possible way to the one who is seeking an answer. and as it is an instruction of the site you are following you should respect its guidelines also..

I believe that one liners are good sometimes. But since we are in mylot, we should avoid those and add a few more sentences even when they are not that necessary.

One liners are the best sometimes :) I will take care of that and add more sentences. Two sentences and counting :D

I really do not mind long responses..as long as it won't go over board..like going around in circles. Straight to the point responses are okey either just as long as it won't appear as phrases which i cannot understand.

Not all the people here in mylot are willing to read really loong responses. Well , if they find a better 'one-line' response , they'd go for it , I'm damn sure ;D

While Alex said that actually it is okay to write one-line quality post, just remember that our earning is mostly based on DRS - it depends on rate that you received from myLot community. And in my guess (just a personal opinion based on own experience, it can be wrong though), much MyLotters here will rate you bad if you are writing only one line, no matter how good that post is. Just take the safest way: elaborate your response more with 2-3 sentences rather than 1 sentence. It should not be really hard to do that..

actually you cant find any thing in the guidelines that says you can't earn from one line sentence , but it says Please make sure you give your best effort to respond with quality responses so quality is still the key if you want to earn more, if your best effort in making a quality response is a one liner and admin think that it is indeed of good quality then you will probably earn few cents but it is not always the case you can seldom see quality one liner response, but it doesn't mean you should always write long post (unless you really want to earn a lot here), sometimes I even post emoticons without any words at all, specially when I am in a funny conversation with some friends here because I don't focus that much on the earning aspect of this site so I just enjoy myself do what I am want to do as long as it is within the guidelines.
