Do you prefer short discussions?
March 22, 2019 6:28am CST
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 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.

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.

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.
