My New MyLot Goal

United States
January 13, 2007 11:21pm CST
I started a thread a few days ago where I talked about how I set goals for myself on MyLot every day. Sometimes the goal is to make 10 new threads. Sometimes the goal is to reply to 20 threads. It usually depends on my mood. Lately my new goal is to start 50 new topics. Not the topics where I say "Do you like cheese?" in the subject line and then in discussion details I say "I do". Those types of discussions kill me. Rambling, sorry. Just interested to know if you think it is better that I start 50 new topics or reply to 50 threads.

Well, I personally love it when you start a lot of new threads because it gives me something to respond to *laugh* But I think that if you are just looking to make money, it is quicker and easier to reply to threads. After all, I don't think that we get paid if we start a topic and no one replies, but we will always get paid for responding in a topic unless that thread perhaps gets deleted. But please, don't stop posting threads! *laugh* You help me reach my personal goal of replying to 100 posts a day - I can barely make it without your help, honestly! *laugh* I get to the point where I can't find anything on the hot topics of the day that I haven't already responded to! *laugh*

Personally, I am enjoying the discussions you are posting, so I say keep up the good work! For me though it's easier to respond than to make new discussions. I guess we all have our strengths and weaknesses!

I would love to start as many topics as possible but it's just not my stregth to do so. It's easier for me to reply than create my own topics. We all have goals, and we become happy when we reach them. So whatever comes easier for you, then I guess you should go for it. 50 sensible topics in a day is quite a hard feat but if you can do it, then that would be really cool. Good luck on it!

Yeah, I don't want to start some stupid discussion, that make me crazy. I also want to set up a goal for myself, but I find it is diffcult to me to finish. Of casue If I have plenty of time I will finish my goal, but the problem is that I do post just in my spare time, If the work is busy, I have no time to do it. So I just post according my time.

See the thing is if all you are doing is starting new discussions you are just asking others basically to help you earn and you aren't really contributing to the message board. I would say you should do a fair mix of the two of starting new discussions and replying to people.

I have always liked replying to your discussions so if you want to post 50 I say go for it. That is good for me. I on the other hand have a hard time coming up with things to start a discussion about so I choose to just reply to them. I think that we are all different and that is what keeps this going so well. Whatever works the best for each of us is what we should do. I say do whatever it is that your head tells you to do.

I think that you should start topics whenever you find that you have something intelligent to say. Otherwise, you should concentrate on making replies.

I try to get 100 points a day. Thats my new goal. Of course it will be a mix of making new topics and replying to topics. I don't just do this for money, i do it for fun too! I usually put a good movie on and mylot while watching that! :)

I don't think it makes much difference weather you post your own or respond to others. I always make 1c for each, no matter how many comments I get on my discussions. Maybe I'm misunderstanding it but I haven't really been worrying about the dollars and cents here. I don't come here often anymore since I found BCR where I'm planning to make some serious money :)

hi,i just started mylot a few a days ago.At first, i thought making new topics are alot easier,but then,i was more of a responder rather than a discussion starter. with so much ideas in my mind for the topic i wanted to post,somehow it took me so much time to what would come first.In a way we do have something in common,iprefer not to post a new topic that a responder would just say "yes,no" or "i do,i dont".. i dont mean to offend anyone on this ground, i just want a realy good discussion where everyone would continue exchanging topics, responses,comments...in a way, everyone would get the benefit of it, right?

I think that replying to topics is better becasue it gives you more to speak about and in my view is more interesting and educational than starting new topics becasue when you start a topic, you know exactly what you answer is and you dont really have to think about it becasue you know what the topic is that you are starting. However, when you read other people topics and then reply to them, it requires you to think alot more and i think it is more benificial to share your views on other people's topics than your own. just my opinion.

Maybe start one or two new topics and concentrate on responding. Starting so many new threads at one time people have a tendancy to look at a few and then ignore the rest. By all means think up fifty new topics but space the posting of them out over several days.

I think you should reply to 50 threads. This way you will make money and the people who started the threads will make money to. Why not help each other here on myLot ?

The topics that you start must attract the members to answer that topic in their first sight.It may be about general interest of the people and must not be abusive of anyone.replying 50 topics is well and good..
