No, It's Not A Good Idea To Write Twelve 1-line Posts On Your First Day on MyLot

I just ran across a new member who, so far today, has already written twelve posts here after just joining the site today. Is that a bad thing? Not necessarily. But the problem is that each post is only a one-line sentence such as, and this is just an example, not a real post, but "Red is my favorite color." Ummm, that's not a discussion, that's a statement. And it's a very short statement at that. Not to be picking on a newbie, but that doesn't work here. A kinder gentler MyLotter has provided her with a link to the Community Guidelines and a suggestion for longer posts, so let's hope she reads that and it sinks in.

I don't know how often I've written something similar, either as a comment or a private message. You've forgotten something which should also be mentioned. These inane one-liners clog the Most Recent Discussions list and push good posts to the bottom.

They're definitely in for a bit of disappointment when they realize those posts don't get the sort of interaction that will equal decent earnings. Hopefully they'll take the time to read the Community Guidelines and apply some of those principles to their posts. Quantity never outweighs quality, at least not here on myLot.
Sure, that can be considered as flooding/spamming, but most of them don't know, I suppose. Not all people are fearful like me, who lurked for a while, looking at what is usually done by the other members, and started my activity here like I were experienced.
Taking into consideration that they are unaware of the guidelines, still it gives an impression that the new member is only interested in making as much money with the least effort. They will eventually realize this does not work and move on to another website.
It's a good post and I am a newbie. I have started a discussion.. may be that is also discussed over here!!

It's good to help new people. Normally a welcome, some explanation and a link is all that is needed. Then they choose what to do with the information. I get annoyed when people have been helped but still carry on doing the same thing then moan about earnings or posts removed etc.
