What Makes A Fun Mylot Discussion To You?

We all like jokes, but they are hard to respond to. We all like discussions where we can talk about ourselves and our interest. But what else makes it fun or appealing? Does it depend on your mood, your knowledge of the subject? What about how many people have already commented. Maybe it is a friend or you think their picture is cute. Because of where they are from or their age? Do you look at their profile page before you respond? What is your method?

Yes, we definitely find discussions interesting when they're about things we do like. What makes them more fun though is when I chance upon topics that are not in my interests list but are inviting and stimulating to the mind enough that I just had to join the discussions and share my two cents :) I don't look much at how many the number of posts are or who started the topic. What matters is that the discussions have something to teach me or that I can at least help someone if I share what I know.

To me, this would be very hard to do if it was just for the money. Although, it is an incentive, it is far from the reason I come back day after day. I know what you mean about topics that are not in your interest. Responding to them, makes us grow as people. It challenges us to think beyond what we are use to and this is always good.

I agree. My visits to mylot is not just about what I'll be earning but more on what new interesting topics are there to join in. In fact, I take my time browsing over a lot of topics before I choose which ones to post to. That's probably why I am slow to accumulate points here. But I can't bring myself to simply answer topics that I come across to that I wouldn't know anything much less care about, just to add to my earnings. I also don't create discussions just for the heck of it but think long and hard on what topics would be interesting to me and which I'd love to have answers to. Definitely, it's not just about the money.

I think the best discussions are when people are looking for advice. I mean this would be the perfect place to go! I never really understood people who posted jokes and stuff because they just did it for money-not really for discussions but it only makes them look bad (and weird!). My knowledge of the subject def. comes into play. If I know nothing about the subject I can either leave it alone or ask questions and try to learn more. If I am intelligent in the particular subject I would be more willing to write a longer response and try to help the person.

I'm with you on that. I only respond to discussions that hold my interest and which topic I am familiar with. I also can't understand other posters here who simply post to get points. Imagine how weird I found this answer on one of my discussions -- he/she wrote a one-liner "No, I didn't" to a topic I started mainly because I wanted to know real answers and am really interested to see how many people are into the topic. Needless to say that was a disappointing experience for me.

I have to disagree with you about the jokes. I love reading and posting them. I enjoy laughing and I enjoy knowing that I have made someone laugh. It's just that there is not much you can say in response to a lot of the jokes. So people start responding with other jokes. But every once in a while when I come across a good laugh or two, I like to share it with everyone. Laughter is good like medicine.

It depends upon my mood as to what makes somthing fun to respond to. It also depends upon the writer, some writers are just funny and they make me laugh. Some writers no matter what they say I will not respond to them because I usually do not like their subject. I will not respond to a mylot person who will ask a simple one line question without some explination. I want to know why this person is asking the question besides just to make money. I ususally do not look at the profile of a person before I decide to responed to a discussion. Nor do I respond to every discussion that my friends write. I pick and choose. I try to rate a discussion + if I respond to it. If I do not like it then I do not respond to it or do not rate it. Now I said that I did rate a person a neg rating today because he/she just copied what I said and did not come up with any original thought. I did not know what that was all about.

I have checked most of profiles of my friends. I have an information who they are. I have own impressions of their discussions.And some of them are my favouritest- i never miss to join at least one of their discussion daily. Usually because their discussions are interesting for me, we share common interests. Some friends i visit more rarely. And my mood is also important. If today i am furious, in bad mood because of my mother -i will join discussions where another people have problems with their mothers.I am looking for support and some good advices...
