Hi all of my fellow mylotters! I have a question and you are requested to kindly respond me in order to evaluate an average time required to wait for first response. Well, I have waited so far for four hours to have my first response to a discussion. What about you? Do you feel comfortable with it?

Well it all depends on what the dicussion is about. I think the 2nd discussion i have posted since i've been here has yet to get a response. Usually it takes about 4 minutes to get a response. But it is down to how the question is set out. And also if the users have interest in that particular discussion.

Yes, but sometimes we have a thought for a certain question as a good but it would fall in bad one...

That's nothing! I had one that sat around for three months before one of my friends dug it up and responded to it. I thought it was never going to get a response! As far as I'm concerned, I'm happy as long as I get a response in the first day. Sometimes none of my friends are on, or there's just no one around who's interested in whatever I'm talking about. I guess I'm a pretty patient person as far as this goes.

Hi aliasad! There is no formula to evaluate the minimum time required or wait to recieve a response. Even i have many such discussions for which i din't recieve even a single response. I accept that in that unresponded discussions there are few discussions which are not fit to recieve responses, but few others which i think that is of good quality and message also stays without being responded. If only we have the option of deleting discussions then i will surely delete the my discussions which has zero response for more than ten days!

Four hours is not bad. I've waited four days before. It varies sometimes. Patience may be a virtue, but it sure is hard to have sometimes. : )

Well said.. Patience is, but how long is question mark until we have to get rid of unresolved! Thanks for response too.

It took sometimes more than a day to my first response. That looks so nice when I have my first response. It seems that somebody has weighted me in a way by attending my discussion. I feel that we must respond to others and the friends like you are always welcome ;)
