Alot of discussons are starts here and slot of people are responde to these discussions, but sometimes the member who start the discussion dont comment or post anything to the responses to his discuss that he start. What you feel if you respond to an discussion and you dont get any replay for your response? I think it is not good if I response to an discusse and dont get any replay for my post it is somthing of respect of people. Tell me what you think about that.

Personally for me, I wouldn't feel offended or anything if the person who started the discussion didn't comment on my response. This is because I am a considerate type of person and I acknowledge that perhaps the discussion starter is busy or just don't have the time to comment on my response. Although I feel it's a bit inappropriate though for a discussion starter to abandon a discussion once he or she starts it, I don't harbor hard feelings for these mylot members because I've already taken mylot like my second family and hard feelings in a family won't be good for everyone. I also have the tendency to respond to comments made by discussions starters on my responses, so if they don't respond then cool, I have less work to do as well! Yeah, overall, I would appreciate it if discussion starters comment on my responses, but even if they don't I'm still pretty OK with it....

Yeah, it would be an ideal situation if all discussion starters comment on responses they receive....by the way, I know some mylotters who do harbor hard feelings to discussion starters who don't comment on their responses, based on what I read from a few discussions I came across on mylot. So, it's not fully a "yes" thing when we say that all mylotters don't harbor hard feelings. Anyway, you have a good day too, and thanks for commenting on my response. Appreciate it!

Hi there alkurishy, I would like to say that 95% of my friends will always drop a comment on the response I am dropping in their post. I do the same but, I also don't bother if someone can't drop any comment..Some people are working part time so maybe they have a lot of notifications to clear and the time isn't enough for them!

Hi there you too, I know what ae try to tell me here, and I know wat you mean, but I star this discussoin to know what members are tinking about this topic and te major point of this discusse is when you start a discusse it is like a palnet a flower you mus feed it with water to frow up, and that is what I am see when I start a discussion I must read all the posts I got and replay what for what I can and that is all. THank you so much for your response and have a nice day.

Yot dont have to be offended by that because there are people in mylot who opens 40-50 discussions for a day and think what would have happened if they will have to answer for every response. they will have to spend all day and night for it. so no one have to be offended andnot have to think that if he dont get a reply for his response it means its not important.

I think it is not a matter of just starting a discussion and leave it on this way, that mean you are here or just to earn money not to connect with members and make mlot getting a live. For me it is not just earning money point but I am here to learn from members and if I have somthing to learn or to make them know I will start a discussion. I dont agree with you for this point to start a 40-50 discussions and leave it with out even to read the comments you have on this discussions. Thank you for your response and have a nice day.

I try to make it a point to comment on most of the discussions that I start. Sometimes the response is so short that there isn't any thing to comment on. I too think that receiving a comment on a response beyond thank you lets you as the responder know that the person starting the discussion has read the response. After all it is supposed to be a discussion and if no comments are made how is that a discussion?

People who started a discussion should respond to people who replied but you have to consider how long it has been since they posted the disussion. They probably lost the motivation they never saw a response in the first few weeks or so. They probably are rarely getting any response that never bothered to look at the discussions they started. Right now I am about to feel the same way. On discussions I started only on one discussion I got responses without being one of the newest discusions started. Most of the discussions I started I only got one or no responses at all.

I don't mind if my response will get comment or not ,sometimes the responses are so much,the the one who starts the discussion can't replay all of them ,so we should consider that.

I don't feel bad though. I would just think that maybe the person is busy. Or maybe he/she just put all his responses in one message. It depends. Or maybe someone else discussed what you're talking about and thus, just summarized his response to those similar topics into one message. Don't be sad.

yes, I will be disappointed when I don't receive any recognition from the replied I've made. I don't usually receive any comment from the person who started the discussion in which I replied. I just wonder why they don't even say a short word of recognition. Maybe they are to busy to do that? Maybe they have a lot of responses and they are tired of giving comments to each of them? lol. But sometimes I did receive comments and I;m happy for it.

I'm happy that you have learned this lesson early. Many new members who have been with MyLot for small amount of time do not know yet, that it is polite to "chat" with the people that come by the discussions. It's something a person learns if they stick around. Of course, I try to talk with everyone but don't have enough woman-hours to do that. I have other offline duties as a mom and wife and homemaker, so I devote my time to that first and catch up online as I can. Certainly, I hope that I don't offend anyone by skipping their response. Many times, I make a point to respond to all names/usernames friends that have attended at least three of my discussions. This is very time consuming and often takes over an hour to update ONE discussion. You can see my quandry!

Starting a successful discussion is not always easy. Topic is the key factor and how you tag your discussion is also important. I've had many successful discussions, but I've also had a few that go no response or just a couple. It's no big deal as it happens to everyone. The key is not to let it prevent you from posting more topics. Eventually you find something that sparks a good discussion.

Yes, you are right, starting a successful discussion is not easy, but for me I enjoy reading responses to my discussions and replay for them it is make me feel I am a part of this big family on mylot. Thank you for your good informations and have a nice posts.

I think that if someone starts a discussion then carried on replying and there were maybe 20 replies they would be stuck there and not able to start another discussion to keep the ball rolling. We would have half a dozen question and answer discussions lol

Yes but that will not keep me from answering the responses on my discussion that I start, anyway every one here have his opinion about that. Thank you for your response and have a nice posts and earning.

I think it is only good manners to respond regardless of what the rules are no i don't especially get upset but after responding to most of their discussions and getting no acknowledgment i will turn the notify off, i will still respond if i come across it while on mylot and am intrested but i don't bother with having it sent to my e-mail to be sure i get it. I have noticed that the people that don't acknowledge a response is usually the same ones that never respond to the discussions that i start, so i figure why waste time helping them if they don't return the favor?

When I first begin here I never used to respond back to those who answer to me and one day someone point it out to me and them I started to respond back. But I noticed that when you post some types of discussions there are no need to answer back because you have already put every thought that you have into starting the discussion and sometimes persons need to see the difference of some discussions. I started two on saturday and one of them was the difference between Yewie and MYLOT and there alot of responses. I don't know what to say to each responder because I said all that I have to say in starting it. So you see it is not about being disrespectful but what has been said in starting the post. You have to ask yourself, does it need to answer back or just to pick the best response and move one. We here are to assess the time of discussions that need the writer to answer back or not before we become upset. This is my opinion.

I will not be upset and never be upset or have any hard feelings if my response dont have a comment from the starter discussion, and as you say there a lot of persones here and every one have an idea and an opinion and I respect them all. Thank you for your response and have a nice day. By the way it is not a reason if my discussion have a lot of responses so I cant replay them all you are free to replay or not but on my opion I feel that I am not respect thier words. This is my opinion too, have a nice posts.

i fi dont receive comments that is really....there is a rule here that dont comment if you will only say thnks to someone who replied to your post (something like this) so this could be the reason why some dont gic you comments...if you will only be saying thnks you can do that through private message but i think it is not being encourage here on the thread... but dnt get me wrong commenting to the responses is perfectly fine and appreciated indeed...hope this will lessen your frustration or dissapointments... happy posting

Replay to the responses of the discussion is a way of respect the one who are response to your discussion it is my opinion and I never leave any reponse to my disucssions without a comment from me it is somthing I shloud do as a respect for them and you are one of them. Thank you for your response and have nice posting too.

Hello, alkurishy. I don't think it's a lack of respect if someone does not comment on my response. I think that, if the person has nothing good to say, why respond? Just leave the comment there! Imagine if you created a discussion and you received 200 responses. You'd spend your whole day commenting on all of them and, in that day, you wouldn't earn a single cent (comments don't give any money). Therefore, it's up to the user to comment on my response or not. Respectfully, Munhozmib.
