Do you prefer short discussions?

I had noticed something. When I post long discussions very few people answer to them. If my discussions are very short they receive many answers. I think people prefer short discussions. I can understand this. Long discussions need a lot of time to be read. What kind of discussions do you prefer? Long or short ones?

If it catches my interest then the length is not important. I do find it easier to comment when the discussion has only one point and if there is a question at the end that asks for an opinion.

Many people prefer short discussions. But the long ones don't have answers. It's a shame because some of them are so interesting.

If they are interesting I will read long ones. If they haven't got my attention in the first paragraph I may not bother with the rest. Regarding writing long ones - I just say what I want to say and if it turns out long, I'm not bothered. People can read it or not, but I'm not going to leave things out just for brevity's sake.

Sometimes we say what we need to say. I do the same.

I agree. Few people read long discussions. Or can I say that few people read discussions?

Medium to shorts. Cause, I've also experienced that long discussions are not readable and people answer all sort fo things.

It's sad because long discussions are very interesting. And they don't receive answers because they are too long.

@dya80dya The thing is not everyone has a lot of time so, yes, they are not that appreciated.

I had been on sites where longer discussions were the norm but here it is the short ones that score and are intended. Some even post one sentence and expect others to respond but that is not fair in my opinion - siva

I agree, it's not fair. Long discussions don't receive many answers. What sites have you used before?

Most people prefer short discussions. But many long discussions are very interesting.

@dya80dya that is true, interesting topics need to be developed.

I don't mind the length of the discussion. I go through them if they interest me. And if I feel I can comment, I do it. Some don't make sense to me or I fail to understand them and so I just leave them without commenting.

If they are interesting you answer to them. I had noticed very interesting discussions with few answers. They were long, but very interesting. Few people answer to long discussions. And it depends on the member who posts the discussion. Some members receive many answers, no matter how long or short are their discussions.

It depends entirely on the discussion. If it's interesting I don't mind long ones but if the first few lines don't pique my interest I move on.

@dya80dya the actual content is also important.

It depends on the topic. If I am interested in the topic I don't mind reading long discussions. If I read the first part of a long discussion and don't find it interesting I might not read the rest.

In my opinion this depends on the member who posts the discussion. Some members receive lots of answers, no matter if their discussions are long or short.

@dya80dya Yes, some members usually receive many responses. The topic also matters. Some topics are easy to relate to and easy to write about.

I think medium length ones do well. Longer posts can be okay as long as the subject is interesting and especially if it's broken up into paragraphs. One really long post that just goes on with no breaks makes my eyes glaze over.

It's a good idea to break it into paragraphs.

I like short discussions. The problem with long discussions, people have no time to read them.
