at starting new discussions. I was looking at the "discussion I've started" section and I saw way too many un-responded discussions. And the other discussions only have very few responses. I only have about 3 discussion overall that have more than 10 responses. I always try to think of interesting discussions but I guess I just don't get what you people find interesting. The one discussion I started with the most responses is actually a discussion I started without too much thought at all. What is it that you people like? I'm starting to feel like I have issues and turning into a mylot out-cast I bet not many is going to respond to this either. Oh well....

Most of my discussions don't have many responses either. I chalk it up to folks not really caring, or they don't come across what I've posted. I always look at the discussions that don't have responses and try to post to at least some of them.

Knowing how it's like to get no responses, I always try to respond to some un-responded discussions. It's nice to know that other people are doing it too. Thanks!

I feel the same way you do. All of my discussions have responses but none over 4 and most are only 2. It kind of makes me sad, but oh well. Guess I'll have to try to start better discussions. I thought some of the ones I started were pretty good. Guess no one else thought so either. I'll be a mylot outcast with you if you want to.. :(

Sorry. I didn't mean it to make you feel guilty. It was just the first thing that came to mind. We should work together and help each other out if we find each other's discussions interesting. Good luck new friend.

And you are in big suprises You got quite many reply in this discussion , yon. It come to my experience that easy topics equal lots of response. And usually, 4-7 sentences in out starter topics get lots of responses too. Same as you, I had quite a few no responses or only 1 responses topics. Now I only made 2 or 3 topics discussion a day. More quality and less quantity. (Or I hope so )

Forgot to add, friends also play important part, cause usually they will try to reply to your post first like I do.

Well, I know you're doing pretty good yourself. You're like a regular on the top discussion board Easy topics are hard to find because they're easy. I mean, easy topics are easily thought of by a lot of people so when I think of an easy topic it's usually already there. Got to be more creative maybe... And thank you very much for being my friend. Let's help each other out more often

Hi! We are definitely on the same boat. I dont have that many discussions but the ones that I do have onyl a few responses. I dont know the right timing either. I just start them whenever the inspiration comes. I currently have 15 discussions and only one of them has more than 10 responses. the rest only range from 0-8 responses. One of the reasons I dont start that many discussions myself. I jsut respond to those discusisons that doesnt have responses yet because I knwo how it feels like if my discussions doesnt get even one response so Im just giving back. thats how I do it. Goodluck on the responses and the discussions. Have a nice day.^_^

up! we definitely are on the exact same boat my experience is the exact same as yours. I think we should just keep doing what we're doing and don't forget to respond to those un-responded discussions. I hope we both can get some tips from the people who respond here. Good luck to you too. thanks for the response.

hi kun2349, I like your attitude. I wish I can be that way. Although I always try to convince myself that it's no big deal, the disappointment is still there. I know I'm thinking too much of it, but it can't be helped It's nice to know that you're feeling good. And to me, feeling good means you're doing good

U can do it too.. The disapointment is unavoidable, and it's quite impossible for u not to think about it.. So, let us respond to other ple's discussions, and in the hope that they will respond to ours too.. hehe ^_^

Yona you are not the only one here. My record for the max no. of responses is 21, i.e. one of my discussions have 21 responses and that’s the most I could gather! I have now given up all hopes of getting responses like 40 or 50. I dunno how some people manage to get so many responses, but I am happy responding that starting discussions.

I've just started on Mylot, but all of my discussions have at least 1 or 2 responses each. I think a lot of it tends to be when you post the questions, as opposed to what questions you ask. If you do it around 9-10pm EST, a lot of people are on, and you have a better chance of getting your discussions answered immediately. If you put them on now(2am), less people are on to answer your question. I'm sure I will hit a run sometime soon where no one answers my posts and I will be in the same place you are now, but just keep posting and eventually someone will answer!

I guess timing does count too. The majority of the mylot people probably live on the other side of the world so that may be a bit hard for me. When it's 9pm there it would probably be around 12-2am here. Thanks for the tip. Good luck to you.

i felt that way when I firststarted and still somediscussions of mine have maybe nine while others that I did not think were all that great must have appealed as I got '77 for one, and 53 for another so I suggest just loosen up and relax. You already have a good following on this discussion.

Well probably now you know what mylot wanted in terms of topic discussion. You already have what 20+ responses and I think it will continue to grow up. Just like you I used to worry a lot for not getting enough responses and observed that the topics that I really thought about are the one that have the least responses. Though I could not still get that dream of having a lot responses, I have already accepted it and view it in a different way. For me I will continue to share what I wanted to discuss here and don't care that much if it will get responses or not (though it will greatly increase our earning if it does). Anyway the registered members here are so high and I think we could get a couple of responds to those we have a common interest.

I don't post very often but I admit sometimes I feel the same way as you. My discussions that I have posted don't really get many responses. But I think a lot of times people miss what I have written and again I don't really post that often.
@Mickie30 (2631)

I know sometimes I feel like why don't people answer my discussions. However then you will start a discussion and it will be a massive success. What is the difference? I am not sure, but don't give up. That is my advice to you.

don't feel bad. i don't get much response either. i don't know what people want to respond to either i guess. i will stick with responding for the most part as i do enjoy that.

I have the same problem. One of the issues I think is that mine only got on the "top discussions" one time. It sure helps if it comes up on that page but I don't know what determines who gets their discussions there. Its not from the ones with most responses cause I have seen some that didn't have any when they first went on that page. Its not the topic cause I've seen some that are on the same topic I have discussed or similar one and mine didn't make it.

Most of my discussions are about shows I watch. On occasion, I come up with something not at all TV related. But, most of them are about shows. LOL! I am just not that creative. So, as for what people are interested in around here, that is as varied as each individual here. Don't lose heart. Sometimes it takes a while to get your grove. My first few discussions didn't get much attention either, and I still strike out. But, I don't let it get me down. The best thing you can do is just keep working to get to know others here by responding to them and, eventually you will get on their radar too. Just don't get discouraged.

It is very slow in the beginning. Once you have acquired friends who respond to your discussions and you to theirs you will get more responses. Also you will find out what people find interesting. Some people also acquire a reputation and a following. They post many discussions and responses and people like them. I never get many responses to my discussions so I rarely post any. I respond a lot to discussions that interest me. It does not matter if my friends or other people posted them. Just be patient my dear and enjoy your time here.

hi yona06 well it's ok, i also find my discussion got no response hahaha, but i'm fine and i'm still here in mylot.. ^^ i just enjoy posting, and it's good enough for me once i thought the reason i got few responses is because my bad english but a friend encourages me to not quit mylot just because of such thinking or anything else, as long as we have the pleasure here, just continue it people are free to respond any discussion they like so although nobody respond to you, keep rocking yona06 .. ^^ have a nice day and happy mylotting .. !! cheers.. ^^
