One should always observe the rules for discussion as described in myLot. Some discussions are just to have reply like Yes or No. These sort of discussions usually ignored by me. Others, if I have a quick point to respond takes 5 mins.

Topics answerable by yes or no is usually the easier to reply with, however most of the user ignore it - you can add a description though or reconstruct your phrase so that response will not be "yes" or "no". It make sense to me now, that if our topic is very hard to digest the tendency is less people will reply coz statistic based on those who participated said that "the knowledgeable you are in topic, the easy you will answer the post". If one post can take 30mins to answer are we going to take our time to comment - of course not, unless we is very eager enough to share our thought on a particular topic. I appreciate your reply.

It all really depends on 1.How fastmy brain is working, 2. The length of my response, 3.If i have to go and research a topic,4. i fi am multitasking. Soon average around 3 to 4 mins a post i think. But i am not really sure tobe quite honest with you.

yes it is really very hard to gauge how much time one user can invest in replying to a particular post. Base on the previous response, I could say that we can normally answer 4~6 minutes. Given that Brain is fresh - newly awake, 3~4 lines reply, topics you knew already so the need to research could be minimize, multi-tasking (with a broadband connection eh, coz dial-up will surely crawl using this one ) :).. thanks for your feedback.

3-4 mins isn't bad, atleast you can think that quick and if the reply is consistent post will accumulate.

Dear i am a oldie here but stillit takes me 2 min to reply as i try my best to quality posts only, because if you post a quality post you can earn a lot too, if your replies are only one liners and not good too, then you wont be earning a lot, so take a little time post only 30 posts but quality pst with enough stuf in it i am sure you can earn upto $1 a day for sure, if post oneliners and upto 100 posts you can earn nearly $0.90 only so now you can have a better idea about this, so go for quality posting and also take a little time too.

Wow that was a great comment from you mdzafaruddin. Can we discuss further about quality posting? How do we know that our answer or post is still within the quality post range?.. Quality Post and Quality Reply are almost the same right.?

It depends on what kind of discussion it is, some takes alot of thinking and some just requires a quick answer. I do belive that it varies alot. A few just take about 20-30 secounds, and a few takes minutes!

20-30 seconds wheeeww.. thats great!!. in my case i dont think i can reply a discussion in such a quick way. there are many reasons, english construction, grammar checking (for me because English is not my main language, so pardon me for the errors ;) ) and typing skill.. so i'm now thinking that one should have a great communication skill to achieve such a quick response..what do you think?

It usually takes me a bit longer than that. I can usually answer about 3 or 4 discussions in ten minutes. However it does depend what they are about and whether I have a lot to say. Often it is worthwhile putting a lot of information in your answer and making it really interesting as you get a better chance of being selected for best answer.

I agree with you, putting lot of information in all your answer should always be the top priority and it is the one needed that's why the question was posted anyway.
