I have started two discussions so far, not counting this one, and neither has gotten any responses. From your experiences, what is the best way to get responses to your discussions?? I'm new in here, and really appreciate any ideas you can give me. :)

There is no way to guarantee that you will get responses. The best thing to do is just keep posting away, replying to others discussions, make friends. Soon the responses will come to you

I've been replying to discussions today, and have been getting new friend requests. So I guess that is a start. :)

Just be creative and have lots of good friends that can support you. You need to support them also, it is an exchange. Also rate people as you go. Give a comment to everyone that answers your discussions! You will get it, the begining is hard but soon you will see lots of responses in your discussions. Also do not forget to follow myLot rules and regulations, because violating them people will not answar your discussions, due to they will be deleted, this is just some clues for you!

Kind of like yuwie, visit other people and they will visit you. But some topics definitely get more attention too!

I think there are some topics I would be afraid to bring up in here. It seems to get quite heated in here from what I've seen. Good to see you in here!!

I think we all wish we knew what the secret formula is to getting lots of responses but if there is one, I sure haven't figured it out yet. There seems to be no rhyme nor reason to it, to be truthful. I've been here for about two years and I still find myself getting no responses to a post I have quite high hopes for and a whole bunch for one when I least expect it. I think it's kind of hit and miss, being at the right place at the right time. My advice would be to just post about what interests you, respond to discussions if you have something to say and build your friends list and the rest will fall into place. I can't guarantee you'll ever get a large number of responses or that you'll never have one where you get none at all but if you just enjoy your time here at myLot you'll do fine. Welcome and good luck to you! Annie

Well the only way I've learned is to just respond to others as much as you can. Leave truthful, helpful responses and they'll return the favor (most of the time). I think it just depends on what the discussion is about and if it peaks certain people's interest. I can't respond to everybodys discussions, simply because I don't have an answer for some. I read them all until one catches my eye or I have something in common with it. It can be tricky..I've got several discussions open right now. One only has three responses and has pretty much stopped while the others are still growing everyday. Good luck and happy posting!

I've kind of been skimming the the question and answer section and looking for topics that catch my eye, so I see what you mean. Thanks!
