Well to be honest this is my revise discussion on the ratings. Well actually it more like this, between you and I, we know that there a lot of other mylotians, who are on this site who give 3 lines or less. Now I know what you're thinking. Why is he so hung up on ratings? It simple really... how I personally rate each response is that, from what they say to how many? More than four line matters. It matters to me because I'd rather give a good rating to someone who deserves it. Someone that speaks from the heart. Than the mind. By then I would've read their response which should inspired me to respond to them or give them a "Best Response". Do you think this is fair? Do you rate the same way? If you do, what do you think will happen to them?

I think it is possible to give a good, succinct reply, possibly in three lines, but it is not possible for me. I still look at content, as well as length. I do not necessarily give a - rating for being too short, but I do leave it unrated, often. I rate gibberish as - and then report it as abuse as well. What you are describing sounds fair to me. Long responses, however can be a bunch of garbage as well.

In most cases I have noticed a few people leave response which do not relate to my discussion at all. Sometime I over look some who's grammar isn't up to par if you will so rating all is not how I necessarily do it.

Hi! I think every user has different ways on how to look at and rate responses to their discussion. I would like to say that it really doesn't matter how long their responses are. What matters is that they were able to express what they think in so short as 3 or 4 lines. If the user can come up only with a 3-liner response I would rate it positively as long as it is relevant and sensible. Although it says to be as DESCRIPTIVE as possible, I also take into consideration that not all of the users (me included) can be descriptive in a language we understand and studied poorly. I think myLot is a good opportunity for us who cannot express quite as decriptively as others to improve. And for those who are excellent in writing descriptively to help. So there's a give-and-take, everyone is happy and enjoying and earning a little at the same time. Thank you for this interesting post. Have a great day and happy posting!

Well of course it is a choice of opinion. I just feel that considering that this is a discussion forum it could be done. I'm however aware of those who aren't able to be descriptive. I'm also open to those who don't speak english all that well.
