It is noticed many a time I write responses to the discussion, that many of them never say thanks.Even the dogs when we feed they will move tails for what they have received. So be active and come back to us when responded to your discussion. Just write thanks that is all.

It is against the guidelines to just say thanks. I do go through my discussions and if I find one that has a good discussion I will thank them only if it creates further comment. I have been nailed for to many guide line infractions by the mylot self proclaimed police to even risk it, so maybe you should be taking your concerns to mylot, rather than take the lack of thank yous as a personal affront.

I don't think it's necessary for someone to post thanks to every response on their discussion, but I too get annoyed if a person does not reply to any of the responses given. I don't mind a person not responding to my comments as long as they have responded to some people.

My friend, I am all for acknowledging the answers given to my discussions, that's what makes mylot such a nice place to be and what turns the discussions in a real sharing of ideas and opinions. However you are wrong. Saying thanks for a response is actually against myLot rules. If you read them there is a part where it really discourages member from replying to post with a thank you. I understand that we like to see that people read our response and somehow give us some feedback, but not just thanks as you suggest, and any new members that might be reading your post can be mislead to think that this is ok by myLot rules when it isn't. THe second point to make is that people receive many responses to their discussions. As far as I've seen most - including me - tend to somehow acknowledge the answer they get but sometimes it becomes very time consuming and a lot of us don't have much time here in myLot. I find myself answering to responses that are sometimes one month old because that's when I get there. SO although it is really nice to turn the discussion in a real dialogue where people respond and then their response receives a comment etc, it is not always possible nor is it encouraged by myLot - at least when it comes to only leave a thank you for each response. Have a wonderful day :)

I do understand, I like when people comment on my responses at well :) I think it's best when we comment on the response than saying thanks because that way we're not breaking rules :):):)

I agree with you... sometimes it's nice to read and look back to our discussions and we see plenty of responses in it. It's not just that we are hoping to be paid, but acknowledging the responses of others makes them look forward in replying again to our discussions. I'm always happy to see my topics with replies and I let them know with just a simple thanks.

It is sometimes really fristrating to see this. But one should maintain mylot guidelines. If you have something to comment then only comment not give mere thank you. It's mentioned in the FAQ section of mylot. Thanks or thank you only is against mylot guidelines. It is better to have something like Thanks for your nice view etc.

It's hard to go back to all discussions and reply to every response. I try to respond to most of them and especially the ones that I have more to say to. Just saying "thank you" doesn't mean much.. if I have something to add to their response I will do so. Sometimes I give a simple thanks if I feel it's necessary. It's just hard to get to every comment! I hope you don't think people do not appreciate your responses, I'm sure they do :)

I usually say thanks to a respond that interest me or it is good. I agree we should say thanks to everyone that has been nice to us, but in mylot, I dont think so, some maybe dont have enough time to say thanks. like me, because in my computer waiting for mylot to loading again is time consuming. I am responding to a discussion sincerely, so you dont have to thank me... Besides, we will get paid from mylot. So we have to say thank you to Mylot..

i am a newbie here in mylot and with the first discussion i opened, i'd reply to all those who responded until somebody posted the guidelines that says i don't have to respond to every reply that i get. another one suggested that to show that i have read what the others have written, it would be better to rate it so that's what i do now. i'm sure it goes without saying that we are all grateful that there are people who find time to post to our discussions whether positive or negative as we are all entitled to our own opinions and that's what makes mylot more enjoyable.

My understanding is your not suppose to say thanks, also you do not get any compensation for posting to everyones response. I think you only get credit for one. It's a non issue for me. I don't think you should be upset because someone does not say thanks.

then why they put add comment box to every response against discussion. No thanks.
• Philippines

the reason why many would not say thanks its because its against the guidelines..if you will read the dont's of mylots guidelines discussion you will it stated, do not always say thnaks..it will not increase your earnings..thats why many would just like to say thank you in different manner like, appreciate it..

Hi elshaddai! I always visit the discussion i've started and used to say thank you to all who responded to my post, saying thank you to all my friends who responded to my discussion is the only way for me to show to them that i appreciate their responses.

I used to thank those who responded to my discussions until it was brought to my attention that it is against the mylot guidelines to do so! Please don't take it personally when folks do not thank you, they are bound by the guidelines of the forum!

I totally agree with you. I am very thankful for anyone who takes the time and interest to come to my site and share their 'perspective' and I tell them so. I am a big believer in the 'attitude of gratitude' way of going through life. Your view fits with mine...it only takes a minute to pause and let the respondent know that we appreciate their comments...after all they could be going somewhere else and not participating...and that would make it pretty boring. You raised a good point...I hope others get it!

You have retorted in a just manner . Why do people not find time to express at least a word of thanks to responses ... it is quite unfair on the part of all concerned .

I just think that if a person starts a discussion and thank everyone who responded, thats like cheating the system..those thank yous will add up and before you know it, this person has almost made a dollar not saying anything substantial but thank you..I didn't even know it was against the rules..if thats the case, there are a lot of people here that got away with it...

First of all, you will have to get used to that. there are a lot of people here who will never come back to a discussion they start. It's just apart of mylot. Second, the do's and dont's section of FAQ say not to do that. I'm not sure why, it's just what it says. I don't think it's against policy, they just advise against it. Check out the FAQ section under the mylot link.
