Do you expect a reply to the responses you make for a discussion?

For me its YES! I do expect a reply for every responses i make for a discussion from the person who started the discussion. During my early days here at mylot i didn't take much interest in replying to all the responses i get for my discussions, but now i realized that by commenting to my responses i make the discussion more meaningful and more people are taking interest in replying to the discussions i start. Me too like to respond to discussions from people who are sure to give a reply. I know it can be difficult to reply to all the responses, but i feel one should atleast reply to 60-70% of the responses he/she gets within say...one month of starting the discussion. Please share your opinion on this topic.

That should be the way it works. It is a two way traffic. I do feel that my response is being acknowledged and appreciated if the person who started the discussion give a short reply. But what will happen if you get tons of response, my only solution is giving at least 50% reply and the rest will be given positive remarks.

Yea,its a very good thing to receive a comment for our responses.But,I don't usually expect comment for all the responses I have made,as some times its very difficult to comment on each and every response if you don't have anything much to tell. But,I agree in your view that [i]I know it can be difficult to reply to all the responses, but i feel one should at least reply to 60-70% of the responses he/she gets within say...one month of starting the discussion [/i] I always try my level best to reply to almost all the responses I get for my discussions. Cheers! Have a great day Happy mylotting and happy earnings.

Most of the times I don't expect any response from responses. For my discussion I try to respond if the reply is worth responding. At the start I didn't take interest in replying to the discussion but now I do take interest. But still replying to every response is very tough task. I think I reply to 50% of respondents.

I don't always comment on all of the responses I get to my discussions. If there is nothing more to say or add to it, I just don't do it. But if there is a question asked of me, or more to say on the subject I will say more. But to just comment a thank you for your response, is against the mylot guidelines and you could get the discussion deleted because of it. So the answer to your question is, no I don't always comment on the responses I get to my discussions. We are not really required to do so.

Yes I would like to read a reply from my response to any discussion. Do I expect a reply, not really. It not only adds to the discussion but it reminds me that the person who initially started the discussion is atleast thinking about what I posted. I do remember who responds and who doesn't take the time to respond to my response. A little thank you is so nice. It might take me time to respond to everyone who posts a response to my discussion but I will eventually get around to answering. Most of my discussions don't bring in that many responses but I keep plugging along! Good discussion here.
