There are certain discussions where the best response is already chosen as soon as the firts few responses start coming in. Do you still respond to those discussions? Or do you only respond to discussions for which the best response is not yet chosen?

Respond - Best response is still given
Dear bindishah When I was new here .. I avoided many discussions which had best responses on them .. I thought only the member who got best response will earn and my post will be of no use .. but then I thought .. why not to ask mylotters .. they must be knowing more about this .. so after help of my friends I came to know it does not matter and I can surely post to the discussions which have already got best response:) .. and so I started responding to the discussions with best responses too.. Whenever I have a problem here .. I have found out so many friends to help me... I am so glad being a member of mylot and making new and quality friends here .. Thanks for being my friend bindishah:)

I know what you mean - I sometimes avoid discussions which already have a 100 posts coz i think the person has definitely got a resolution to his question in that many posts. Id rather add to discussions where my input would matter rather than just one more cent.

I'm earning money for making response to the discussion. I was not appreciated for getting best response. So I go for making posting irrespective of best answer chosen or not.

My respose is according to my conscience .if i9 feel a comment need to be made i make it. I dont even bother to see whether any response earlier to mine has been marked as the best respose.

I reply if I have something new or strong or interesting to say. I also respond if i find the topic interesting. It is irrespective of whether the best response has already been chosen.

I don't care if the best response has been chosen if the subject of the discussion is interesting. I feel that I have something to contribute and I do so.

I'm new in myLot so I still haven't understand what happens when a response is marked as the "best response". I hope to understand soon what is better to do in that case.

Im not sure but maybe we earn an extra cent if our response gets selected as best response or maybe its just the satisfaction of knowing the person who started the discussion thinks your response was the best.

I guess you are right - we are all here to ultimately earn some money irrespective of best responses :)

Iam only responding to the discussions of those people who respond to my discussions. I am not interested in best response.

So you dont respond to discussions if the person has not replied to yours? I believe that would generally limit the number of discussions you respond to a lot.

Yes, I answer those discussions. It doesn't even matter to me. Well, I answer forums not because I want to get the best response award or something. I do it because I can simply relate to that discussion or field of interest. Honestly, it's really hard to force yoursel to reply to discussions that are beyond your interests. I want it to be related to my interests for me to have a smooth flowing explanation. And if ever, I got the best response; it's just a bonus. A kind of bonus that speaks about your seriousness about the issue. Of course, it will really make me happy. It's even flattering too because your answer was appreciated. That's the best thing here in this website which is not in others'. So, stay happy here in mylot.

Yes, I still do.. :) Actually, it doesn't matter if I won't be chosen to have the best answer. As long as I know I can still contribute to this certain discussion then I'll allow myself to comment on it, it may not be as good as the others but I know I might be making a difference with my point in it.. Stating your opinion and sharing ideas can helped other people out since we are all different so can have different sides in a certain discussion.. :)
