Do you take the time to read all the responses in your discussions?

I get excited when I post a new discussion. Asking myself if that discussion would interest other mylotters. Sometimes, the more I get excited with it, the lesser the responses are so I get to read most of them. I only read about less than 20 responses and doesn't have the time to read all the responses in my discussion. Sometimes, when I post a discussion and doesn't care if anyone would respond to it, I get lots of responses from mylotters and that makes me very happy and encouraged to post more discussions. Do you read all your mylot discussions and respond to every single of them even with just one word and an emoticon?

I do read and respond to all who answer my discussions, or at least I make my best effort to do so I don't post that many discussions so it isn't that difficult for me to do.

Even if I have a lot of responses I do try my best to read and reply to all of them. It's nice that they took the time to respond to me I should be kind enough to respond back to them

Although I wouldn't be able to respond all the reply in my post, I read all of them. Lately, I was also able to gain plenty of responses, I still manage to read them, I believe that they are expressing something, a sentiment or a compliment perhaps or maybe a criticism, what would you know if you won't read them ? You will eventually know who are those who keep answering yours posts and in that way maybe one day you can be real friends, hang out or stuff like that. There is no harm of reading the responses, in fact it is very helpful.

I just think it eats up all of my time. I don't have much of it for me to sit in the computer but I also wish I could read all of it up because I want them to know how I really appreciate those who takes time to respond to my discussions.

I do read all your mylot discussions and respond to most of them even usually thanking them, or - if needed - adding some new information for further analysis.

Yes, I read all the responses to my discussions. At least all the initial ones anyway. Sometimes I don't get to read a response if it was in response to another response in a discussion I started. I do not usually receive these in my email so I don't even know about them to begin with unless I go through them in mylot itself...

This is but natural and for which we do not care that comes in the way. When I post a discussion which think is top most for me and feel that it will find lot of responses I really say that it seldom fetch any response and that is why I have some discussions with 0 response and it really hurt me. I have also posted some discussions based on the discussions posted by some others and responses I receive and I do not consider them response worthy a lot of responses are there. I do not know what is happening. Please discuss more about it and comment.

Hi Kharen, it's nice to get responses to the discussions that we posted. I'd read all the responses; that's why I'm days late in responding back to those who commented in my discussions. However I no longer respond with just one sentence of thanks or emoticon, ever since, I read that there were myLotters who wouldn't appreciate the thanks. So if I'm not able to comment on the response, I'd just rate it positive! I'd very much love to thank them for their time; but again, I'd not like to be blasted for wasting anyone's time by just replying 'Thanks for responding'

I tried sometime a more than 30 post in a day it seems to me so boring, however I must create 4 lines of sentence to qualify its 1-cent of earning, so I response wisely and diligently in order to obtain for that. Many people so happy earn here throughout their lives.

I've red them all normally,especially for the long long responses,which make me happy coz I think my discussions attract other mylotters.After reaching 200 posts here,I will always post the emoticon in my reply and the number of words I reply consider to mylotters' response~~

Yes i do, i think that when you see someone responded, you can comment in that response and make your discussion go to the top of "recent". Then more people see it, more people post. And then you earn more money, more posibilitys to be in the "today's top" or in the "Hot" tabs. Right? Have a nice day.

I've only started a few discussions, but I do try to go back and respond. I have my notification on if I do get a response to a discussion I replied to, and I'm wanting to turn it off because I want to let my inbox get to full of those messages. I noticed that some people tend to respond to every comment. A lot of my discussions do not get the responses that I look for. Only 2 of them have.

Most of the time I will read all of the responses, unless the discussion got over 20 responses, then I stop reading them all. I will forget about the discussion after a day or 2, and stop reading if it gets anymore responses. Sometimes I will just go through and look for my friends responses and ignore most of the others. I don't respond to every comment either, just the ones I feel I can add to.

As much as I can I try to comment to all of the responses. But I don't comment with one-liners like "thank you for responding". I think there is a guideline prohibiting it. But when I get lots of responses to a discussion, I can't comment on them all. Have a nice day!
