I have only joined mylot today and so far I've answered to a couple of discussions and started one of my own. I have received responses which are great but I don't really know what I am supposed to do next. I am supposed to rate them or something? And what is going on with someone wanting to be my friend - what is that? Sorry to sound like a biff - any help would be appreciated.

I'm new too. I think I started a few days ago. You write and leave comments and people will rate your answers.(I think). You can also leave rates(the +/-) things if you think the answers are very helpful or not helpful at all. I dont rate, because I dont really get the gist of that system. For every few comments you write(the number by your name) you make like a penny. I use this site to just talk, write my thoughts, and discuss things that are on my mind. :)

you should rate a best response in your discussions because it helps to increase your reputation. you will get a star when you reach 100 posts and based on your responses and discussions they will give you a number from one to ten. if you make quality responses and rate your discussions you will have a good rating.

Your friends are more likely to answer your discussions and you can also choose to answer all of theirs. If you select friends carefully it will mean that you can always have a stack of high quality discussions to answer in your inbox without having to spend a lot of time searching for them. If you give a +ve response to people who you are impressed with then they are likely to earn more from the site. Hopefully they will do the same for you.

Hi there, I'm also new here in myLot. I joined just a couple of days back. Well, as far as I know, you may rate those who responded well in your discussions with a +. You can also choose a best response if you really think someone qualifies to be regarded as such. About that somebody who wanted to be your friend, well for me I accept anybody who prompted me for a friend request. I believe this is a great way of connecting with people and establishing friendships. I hope this helps somehow. Godbless!
