That depend on the type of discussion started .I think if 6 responses have u got ,then that is not worst .As in many of my discussion i have three to four responses only .I think number of discussion rises with time .

You must realize that there are several hundreds, or even thousands of new discussions being posted every hour. With more than 60 thousand, close to 70 thousand members, MyLot is no doubt flooded with new discussions every now, and then. The problem is, who could see our new discussion we posted, before another new post overlaps, ours. I have similar problems, the most responses i have had, was only about 8 responses. The majority of my discussions have zero responses, i could only be disappointed with the results. Hence, i decided to post responses than post new discussions. There are ways to boost your post traffic actually. however, these ways are quite pointless, if you just want attention. People will naturally respond to you when you have a high reputation, and good ones of course. Another way to boost traffic is to get our discussion on the most recently discussed discussion. In this way, people will not only see your post, they will respond in convience as they coincidentally saw it. Without about 7-9 responses, we could get our discussion on the most recent discuss topics, just keep traffic high, you will see the results. In the meanwhile, just hang on to giving responses, and build your ratings. All the best in MyLot!

I also meant to add it may be because you are a new user. If you respond to other peoples discussions they may view your profile resulting in them viewing your discussion and possibly even responding!

People may not respond to your subject as they find it boring and not intresting. The advice i can offer to you is to make a discussion that would appeal to a wider variety of mylot users for example a movie or a band or maybe even handy hints about computers
