This is what I do.Is this the best way to do it.If I do not post it as soon as I can,it seems it never gets posted.I can write it down,and Most of the time I never get to posting it.How do you do it? what way do you feel is best?Do you have any better ideas to go with?

I used to do the same. When I was new here I had loads and loads of ideas which I really liked putting down in mylot. And reading the response were really entertaining. But later on as time went on, there were only few times when I started the discussions of my own. Now, most of the time I'm responding to other's discussions rather than starting one of my own. Responding is also really fun.

Oh yeah. Whenever I think of a nice discussion, I need to post it or else I'd forget too. But before I do post, I try to search the topic first if someone else has thought of it already. I don't like to do multiply topic postings because it's against mylot rules as we all should know. Anyhow, if the topic isn't listed yet and I don't post it, then I'm sure that I would never post it because I have the tendency to forget topics fast. Maybe this is the main reason that I got a lot more posts on reactions than posting new discussions for myself. I think one better idea on how to post would be to think deeper into the topic. Like, what's the real point of everything? People don't like topics that are too broad, I guess, plus if you think deep enough, more and more people would come to understand your query thus the discussion would be a lot longer and with more quality and sense. Well, I'm not a good discussion poster, but I'm good at reacting to good topics. So, for me, that's how I choose which topic to react or discuss to, I always search topics that aren't like anything else, something that keeps my mind working, rather than the survey type - Yes and No discussions.
