This is being a major problem with mylot for me. Till date, I've started 5 discussions here. For 3 of them, I didn't receive any answer. For just 2 of them, I received 5 answers for each. Whenever I start a discussion, if I click the "new discussions" tab, I see that my question has already dropped down two places. After 2 or 3 minutes, the question is absolutely out of view. How can people reply to my question if it is not displayed for a sufficient time? On the other hand, I also see questions having 40+ replies. Can you please suggest ways by which this problem of mine can be solved? Or will this again be a responseless discussion started by unlucky me?

How can people reply to my question if it is not displayed for a sufficient time? It is displayed there forever till it is cleared. It just gets moved to the back when discussions newer than yours get posted. You don't need to worry too much on these count as those who are answering this section of discussions will go down the pages and your discussion will be taken up if it is interesting enough for them. Having 5 replies for a discussion is not half-bad - at least, 5 people are interested enough to reply! See that as an encouraging sign instead. ;-) One way to get more replies would be to actively respond to other people's discussions too. Friendship is a give-and-take... you can't expect your discussions to be popular if you do not take time and effort to oblige others too. Hope this helps. ^^

Thanks, lordwarwizard, for your tips. I have been an active answerer here on mylot ever since I came here. In fact, I've answered a lot more questions than I've asked. And that's why it strikes me as being a lot more painful.

I noticed that you have already picked the best response and your discussion is only 5 hours old. This will stop some from answering your discussion. You need to give it at least one day before you pick the best. I have some discussions that have gotten 0 responses but I just keep on posting. It's not a big deal. I never get a lot of responses. Just don't give up sooner than later you will hit on a subject that will get lots of responses. Best of luck Kowgirl

i didn't get much replies for my discussions as well... but i am just being patient and even after one month later, one or two people still responding to my discussion... it doesn't have to do with luck at all... just be patient...

This is a process we have to pass through: Though you want to discuss the matter then you must write to mylot team about and get back their answer to understand the process! I have not faced the same as you have faced but if you have posted your discussion issue properly then you will have easy access to start new topic. I am also doing same thing and not facing any kind of problem till the date! We can start new discussion any time but if we dont get responce/s then it is not a fault of the mylot site! There may not be such member who are interested in that topic! Some time it will take days to get any responce but you also have to visit other's discussions and add your point of view! Perhaps rating system has an impact also that's why start to rate the discusions!

Hello abhi, I will not explain to you anymore about what you posted. Almost everyone had given you an idea of what you must do. Don't despair, take heart. I also started like that. In fact, 2 of my discussions with 0 response was luckily answered by a good friend here just the other day and its a month old discussion already. Anyway, welcome to mylot. I hope you will enjoy your experience here. Good luck.

well you can be glad now!!! this post will give u 12 posts including mine!! well dear, what i have understood in the limited time tht i was in mylot that topics that circulate well in mylot are the ones with universal appeal... there are people from different countries and cultures here... if u start something that would only interest a portion of this population, then only they wil reply... and there wont be any guarantee that they would be all present the time when u post your topic!

Do you purposely come out with such a question to draw attention?

Well, I can't say that you're totally mistaken! After all, I wanted people to answer my queries, I wanted others' views. Now is that a wrong thing to ask for?

Don't worry too much, your not the only one out there, my responses have been similar to yours. They say to make friends but I did that and still none respond. But it dosn't matter anyway, I'll just keep on trying.

Get some "friends" here, so that they would like to reply the discussions you have started. It is a must that the position of your discussion will drop. Because there are so many people in mylot, and there are so many of them posting all the time. It is not possible to hold your post in the first place all the time. What do others think?

Hello to you too. I'm new here also and I have just started 2 discussions. What I am concentrating on right now is responding to discussions. I think it would really help if we could receive some tips on how to be a good mylot member from veteran members of mylot.

You have to be patient. Only ask questions from your interests and use more than 3 full sentences that explain or give examples to your title. Once you get used to doing that, more will answer. I had to learn, too!
