Hi there, Correct me if I'm wrong about my observation here in mylot now a days. I admit not really active of particifating here due to my schedule and time. But every time I'm inside mylot, here are my observations: 1. New Discussion topics are not reach of more than 40-50 responses 2. A few topics are not really instresting some are re-cyled only 3. I never received or seen again a voted "best response" 4. I never seen again a topic that can say blockbusters. How about you guys? Did you have own observation like mine or all of the above are not true.. Share to me.. see you around

Your observation, have a point. Although not entirely agree. I rarely, watching things like that. The important thing for me, I enjoy the discussions on myLot. And I try, to not break the rules of MyLot.

I share your sentiments too, indahfth. I've never consciously check how many responses a topic got. I just enjoy the interaction with other people in this community :)

As long as we enjoy what we do, we'll have the satisfaction and pleasure. So, we just need to enjoy, without having to think about other things. If we enjoy everything we do, will get quality results.

There... I hit the best response button for you. But you are absolutely right, and a lot of the questions are so trivial and uninteresting. There are some good writers doing this kind of thing but they are mostly on Knoji. Think of some ancient sage and start a new line of questions and answers.

thanks for your first response with your ideas about this. No you cannot hit a best response on the opening discussion I think it will effect if there are some responses. Do you mean the reason only why lessen the responses are the un-interesting topic? How about shorten the ideas because of saturated topics?

you can't choose of course the best response if you have only limited responses. in every post i had i always make sure that i chose a best response. this is to ensure that person that he got the best idea or comment based from my post.but i have to wait for more than 20 responses to choose the lucky one.

bad confrontation concerning ideas that not meet in the middle which other want always of confronting somebody in the discussion.

visavis: That is the interesting aspect life and mylot also. What is interesting for one is not interesting for another person. Further when topics are related to some countries others do not post--for example power grid failure in India -- this topic may get a few responses from Phil. But a topic like stress in worklife has got more responses from phil. Your observation that "Best response" selection is not done by many members is right. Even I have 30 discussions pending for which I have to decide the best response.

Hi there, thanks to your response may be your correct - so in the case we say to all members to make their discussion be in general topics in order the others will relates and can join the discussion. I thought only me not recieving best response even you, but the point in my observation is most of the members are not after to give best response award to the concern mylotters - only concern is to response them..

You are right. Actually I only receive few responses with my recent topic and I admit made me feel a bit upset...but..so be it. Maybe everyone is busy and seldom come mylotting these days. Although I am also busy with other sites, I never miss the chance of mylotting... Good to see you again

jaiho you are busy all the time - you work in an office and are busy with other website also good. number of responses --i think it depends on other people looking into notifications and how busy they are with other works. if they have other works they may not attend this. we should not feel bad about this. Even though a cook cooks well, if the customer has no appetite he may not like the food. ...

@jaiho2009 thanks for your passing by here in my topic.. may be being busy is one factor but as you said you are able to do here so not really the reasons - what do you think about earning (getting small and topics are recycled only) @ravisivan I agree with you that sometimes customers are unable to stay in one restaurant if the food are not good. So that is the right and correct sample that the foods(topics) and opportunity are not good - right or wrong?

# 2 : I see a lot. and they even seem fake to me, repetitive with some modification. but without being sure, I don't want to report. # 1 : well it's new of course it won't get over 50 responses right away. I never got that many responses and never cared much about it. people answer what they want to answer. # 4 : I still see some. deep thinking. I respond to these a lot as they match my spiritual path. If I wanted to create topics like these, it would be on spiritual/ metaphysical forums, not a community site like mylot. Here I just posted general stuffs, gardening, ebay, relationships etc. all from my own experience, not copy and paste. # 3 : well that's up to the poster whether your response is BR or not. some people take time to choose, and I actually heard a few years back that some people never choose BR. I don't know if they are still members or not.

Hello LittleMel, Appreciate your effort of responding in each number of my observation and particularly agree with you.. I just asking and interested if you are posting any topics about spiritual life because I lie also to discuss something about it.

i did notice things are a bit slow but i am hoping things will be better as the hot tab and today's top is working again.
@visavis (5945)

You mean to say the today's top is not working properly? Why? because last week I've seen today's top was not in proper way because the responses mentioned 106, 80, 70 and others

There are certain topics reached more than 40 responses. There are not many but there still get many responses.The number two is absolutely right. Most of the discussions are re-cycled. I don't like it either. I always see the best response even if it's not in all discussions I have seen and there were some hot fantastic discussions made by the older members but it's so rare.(^^)

thanks my friend.. you remember I think last year you and me were meet always in several discussions -as you said from older members - but where are they now? I admit very rare now of receiving best responses because in some of my discussion I'm not given a best response. May be the reason I never receive also best from my response to other

I've never seen a discussion hit that many responses either. You will see some duplicate topic types just because there is not always a way of knowing if you're starting something that already exists. Sure, you can use the search tab and look for key words, but if someone doesn't use the same tag it won't come up.
@visavis (5945)

If not seen by using the tag - put the whole phrase or title and search using the full tag it will appear all. that's the way I do it before I make discussion.. although no big deal such case because may be title only same but the presentation are diffirent - sad to say even in the presentation mentioned sometimes a question only or one sentence.

I have gotten "best response" quite a few times. I'm not very active and can make payout every month. To me, some topics are rather boring BUT they are interesting to the person posting them. If I'm not interested, I just don't respond. What do you mean by: "I never seen again a topic that can say blockbusters"

I am just here a little under year but I have received several "best responses" and I have seen a few discussion with lots of responses.. I may just be a little slow, but I just don't get the point...I mean since I've been here it is what it is, and I like being here and the " I never" observations/complaints just have not come to mind.. I am aware that everyone is entitled to there own opinion but I just don't understand..are you saying that the 4 things you mentioned that is missing from my lot makes a huge impact on the site???

Nice observation and I agree with you. But now a days I not observe any new thing in mylot. Because I am not paying attention on other things other than discussions and responses.

I do notice your observations too, especially item number 2. Also, before I see great discussions with a lot of responses in the highest rated discussion. Now I think that the highest rated discussions have lesser responses than before. I don't know but maybe it is on the perspective. Like you, I am not on mylot as much as before. So seeing my activity dwindle down compared to before, such observations can come up easily. Observations become more accurate if done continuously in a consistent manners. Since our activity is inconsistent, some biases can occur during the times that we log in and observe. A lot maybe happening when we are in and we don't have the opportunity to observe that one. So to sum up, I can see that you have made a point, but I think that the points raised only has around 60-70% accuracy. Don't ask me where I got those numbers. They just popped out of my head.

YES! ALL TRUE! In my own observation. I am not always active in my lot but from what I've noticed ever since I've started here is that all you've mentioned are true. But then I really don't care about it especially about topics that repeats. When something happens to me recently that I'd like to share to mylotter and discussed it here, right after posting it, I noticed that same topic was discuss about a month, a year or so. Maybe it just happen that I had my experience came late to those who experienced it first or as you might say.... But what really matters to me is my earnings here in mylot. It's very slow and so small. I hope that in the future, more active mylotters will have bigger earnings...

Sometimes it may take a few days or more for topics to have 40-50 responses. Sometimes a very good topic, an educational one at that, can't even get past 10 responses while some very trivial ones receive lots of responses. But I agree with you that there are lots of 'recycled' ones. Most however were posted by newbies which I think is very likely to happen since they haven't seen the older posts. Oh, I just received a best response an hour ago, actually

Yeah may be from newbies that no time to read the guidelines. But they should know first that there are way to check the old and repeating topic by using search engine/discussion.

i would agree! :) yes i have observed that... But you know, i cannot blame them that had made a popular discussion, they are really good! and i'm not good like them so i don't feel bad about it :) that's why i'm trying my best to improve my discussions and responses. Well, we don't have to be like them that good! We are all unique from each other and i know that makes the mylot more interesting! Let's enjoy mylotting!
