I'm still pretty new here, but I havea couple of friends. I don't post very many discussions - but I'm trying to be more active, and I try to respond to theirs when I can but they all submit so many, so fast! It's hard to keep up sometimes. I won't talk just for the sake of it though. If someone posts something that I don't have anything to say about, I won't respond just for the heck of it.

Thank you very much for your quick response. You seems to be practical.Respond to a postings which seems to be worth responding. Pl do not respond for sake of response. Best of luck.

Oh no! I didn't mean "worth responding to". I just meant like ... if someone posts a discussion on vegetarianism, for example - I'm probably not going to respond to that because I'm not one, and don't see that any input from me would have substance, since it's not a topic that I'm knowledgeable about, or practice. Also, sometimes I'm short on time, so can't really respond to just general "Do you like THIS or THAT" kind of posts. Rather than spend time stating a "chocolate or vanilla" preference, I'd rather skip to a discussion where someone might want some advice, or one where I think I can be helpful. Does that make sense? I don't like to just talk for the sake of hearing myself speak. If I can't contribute something of substance or value, then I'd rather not post at all. That's all I meant.

A lot of my friends are responding to my discussions if I respond to their discussions. It's a "give and take" situation. With some of them i'm in a close relationship. I wish to meet more and more people all around the world.

Hi, Brijendra. I'm not fond of starting discussions. I used to do it when I joined MyLot, but afterwards I must have run short of new ideas. As to responding to your discussions I'll do it ... if I know what to answer. There are subjects I'm quite ignorant about and others (say modern music) I'm not interested in.

I have just checked and I have 113 friends at Mylot, which is probably too many to be practical. I always check the "discussions my friends started" category and look for anything that is appropriate for me before I look elsewhere, but it is hardly possible for me to respond to all of them. I would like to be able to share my attention among the members in my friends list in order to be fair, but even that is not practical because their discussions might have been pushed down the pages before I log in to Mylot.

Quite a few of my friends aren't posting on the same regular basis that they used to. I have less than 100 people on my friends list and I find that they provide me with more than enough discussions to be getting on with. I'll admit that there are a few that I don't respond to because I just don't feel that I can add anything to the discussion. Whether it be because it's not something I'm knowledgeable about, or whether it's because I don;t have any advice. I'd rather leave the discussion alone than make a terrible response.

I try my best to respond to my friends discussions. But like alot of others, I seem to have a bunch of friends who don't really share my interests but I just can't delete. But I do look for something from everybody to answer once in a while. If something doesn't pertain to me in the slightest or I can't relate, I won't answer. There are too many meaningless responses already.

I have seventytwo myLot friends right now. i am very happy with them all. I always have room for a few more - I would especially like to have some more referral friends. Good ones are hard to come by.

i have more than 400 friends on my list. some are still here, while some are already gone. some never responded to my discussions, while some always do. but i haven't tried deleting anyone of them from my list, hoping that one day, they might come back or might atleast respond to any of my discussions.

I have 280 and they provide enough discussion between them to keep me at my goal on a daily basis. They seem to take turns and that affords me the luxury of answering what I can in the time I have. My email notification is not working today and sure do I miss those emails. Takes so much longer to fish for discussions. Good luck with all your other friends, my friend.

Wow! I have over 200 people on my list, and that is way too many to be able to answer every discussion. I have email notification for those who show up often in my discussions. The rest, I read from the 'my friends discussions' list on the mylots page.

I try to respond to friends first and then look for other discussions to respond to. I find that unless I have a topic for discussion that I think is interesting, I tend not to post new discussions. I think if I were trying to earn more, I would definitely start new discussions. But I'm happy just to pop in and respond to my friends and some other discussions.

i try and respond to most of my friends post by going to discussions my friends started, but most of the ones that pop up r the friends that spend most of their time starting discussions instead of answering some too. so it's hard to find the friends that sometimes start discussions i usually have to visit their profiles individually.

Most of friends I believe are worth responding to. I try and respond to all my friends. Some days it make take me longer to answer some compared to others. Espically if I haven't been online for a couple of months.

I don't know how many friends I have. I try my best to go through the list of discussions my friends started and respond to some of them. Just like the top discussions, I won't sit and respond just for no reason at all. I have to be able to know something about what the person is saying before I do that. I could sit and respond to every discussion just to get extra money, but I wouldn't be doing anyone any good by lying. So even if it takes me four months to make 10 bucks, then so be it. At least I am doing it the honest way.

I'm one of 29 friends of yours...I haven't so much friend because i haven't much time to work at mylot.I ask very little times add friends but I never didn't say no to any friend request.I try as much I can response to them topics.Some of them start more than 1-2 discussions at the day so if I haven't much time at least I go and response 1 discussion.The truth is some they come always to me but some never...I think i must make a cleaning to my friend list lol:

Wow... Impressive. Fancy having 729 friends when you have done less than 500 discussions. I do not measure whether my friends are worthy of responding to my posts. I am happy enough they remain as my friends, and do not delete me even though they never respond to any of my discussions. I do not have that many friends but I am certainly glad and appreciative that my friends do provide me the pool of discussions to respond to as my daily bread. Without them, I would not be able to meet my own target responses daily. Am I worthy of my friends? I certainly am since I attempt to respond to every of their discussions if possible. There are times I am unable to respond though as I know nothing about about the topic to give a reasonable and decent response ;)
