Are writing big posts a waste of time

I'm just wondering if anybody else feels as though the posts that they write are a waste of time, I like to post so everybody can see how I feel about things, and to view my opinion and hear other peoples opinions as well. It all moves so fast in here that I dont think anybody has time to really care what anybody else has written. Anyway thats how I feel, I still love this site though, there's so much stuff to read and only 24 hours in a day.

I do try to make a quality response and so sometimes they might be a bit long. I do not think that 1 or 2 words constitutes a response at all plus I think that is cheating the system really. I am not too sure how they work out the earnings and think that some people wildly exaggerate what they earn when you look at their rating. I enjoy myLot because if people make decent responses then we have the opportunity to share opinions as well as learn about other cultures and customs. I do not think you can interact with someone who only posts a couple of words either. Good luck and I suggest that you continue to respond as you feel suitable and it is is a long post, then a lot of people will still read it.

I reckon your right, that 1 or 2 words is the not best way to respond to a post. Plus its hard to state how you feel with just acouple of words.

Thank you for giving me a best response for this discussion and I really appreciate it. Good luck with future discussions, and continue to post as long a response as you feel is appropriate. :)

I notice most people ask questions that are yes, no or black, white, so I do answer those too. But I do like the questions that require and actual answer you have to think about. I personally ask both.

I do answer short ones as well, I did lots of bigger posts when I first started on here, then I found myself, doing smaller posts just to get the amount of posts up, I do try to make an effort on giving longer answers and doing bigger post. Doesnt always work though lol.

I myself gives long and descriptive answers. But then, it takes a lot of time and I cannot post a lot of posts everyday. I feel I am paid very less for the amount of posts that I post. But, whatever be the case, I beleive in quality and not quantity. If Mylot keeps paying me less maybe after I reach this month's mark I would quit.

Yeah I know what you mean, if you got paid more for posting more then there would be less topics and more conversations about one topic. Instead of having 1000 topics on one thing, there would be a few topics with lots of replys, making it a conversation.

Sometimes I feel that way. I try to write responses that have information and opinion, because that was the point of this site, I thought, to provide a kind of feedback on discussions. I enjoy giving my opinion, and I HATE when people write things like "no" or "i do". Stupid little 1 or 2 word responses to cheat the system. How does "no" help determine your favorite scent and why?

There is so much to read and write about so I dont waste my time reading long posts or writing long posts.
