I think most of the people dont try the plus,minus sign on either of the discussions,comments etc. before i never knew this rule of using + or - sign but recently i have started to give those whose discussion is worth it. these signs are for the ratings that is the star rating i suppose ....so people,i wish you too start giving these bonuses to other people for there nice and touching discussions.

I do rate every response to my discussions. Also, after someone responds to one of my discussions, I try to go and look at discussions that they have started and I try to respond to them as well. I think rating responses is a very important part of MyLot. Something else that people should be doing is giving Best Responses to discussions they have started. Sometimes I fall behind on that. But I do try to keep up. It's important.

It takes awhile to learn about all the things you can do on myLot. That is why discussions like this, that point them out, are good. Basically, any place I see ratings boxes, I rate. That includes pictures on discussions.

I only did once to someone who was showing off about taking $900 from some man who had left their atm card in a machine - he was bragging about it and did not show any guilt what so ever!

Believe it or not, if I answer the discussion its getting a plus. If I dont want to give a plus I dont give anything but its rare. I always rate them all plus. I did ONE negative and thus fourth that day I made VERY little money $.02 for like 20 discussions. Yeah so now I minus no more. Truly not

I usually rate all the responses for the discussions that I start and I rate responses in other people's discussions if they are particularly funny or informative. I think the ratings help us earn more and increase our star' rating so we should definetly use them.

I have given plus rating and no rating to the responses that I have received so far. I would give it a plus if you answer or provide suggestions that I could give a try. I would not rate if the answer given is not relevant or too short, that is only a few words. So far I have not rated anyone with a minus rating since I sincerely feel that who ever responded has mad an effort to do so and minus rating is definitely not my way of saying thank you for his or her time.

I never forget to rate the discussions and comments.I know it boost up reputation points of people responding to our topics.Even ours is rated by someone so our reputation increases or decreases.But i have never marked negative as of now since i know it decreases their rating eventhough i found some irrelevant and annoying answers to my topics.But i was with 10 star and suddenly i found my star rating fall down to 9 ..day before yesterday .I felt little dispppointed.

I rate every single discussion that I respond to. I think it's only fair that if someone starts a discussion that peaks you interest enough for you to respond, you should rate that person.

When I see deserving ones, yes, I do give a plus. Likewise, I give minus to all undeserving ones too. For those who respond to my discussions, I normally rate a plus. So if you answer just my discussions only and nothing else, you will actually see an improved reputation. LOL :P

I always rate my responses. I can't remember having ever given a - rating though, because I don't think I've ever seen a discussion that deserved a - rating.

I use them when I start a discussion, but I don't usually use them if I am responding to a discussion, with one exception. I will normally rate the discussion itself, but not all the subsequent comments.

I always rate every discussion that i reply to..If a person gives a nice good answer i rate them a +....I also rate their discussions..I will not rate it if they have a reasonable answer but doesn not apply to the discussion.If it is a yes or No answer,or a one line i rate it a minus....The rules here on mylot is to give a good answer,and try to answer the question or discussion,and add quality to it and if they do that then i always rate a +....This one that you have opened is a nice one and people should know that rating is important,and it is good that you have poened this discussion so i will rate you a +....good post
