when i start a discussion i get responses quickly but later some hours no one responses it shows that people response to another latest discussion started by another my lotter but do you think it is some what wrong bcoz many people start discussions and it keep on going if you always respond to the latest discussion the interesting discussion will not get any response and also we have many interest categery but we always see mylot ,make extra money, life ,people ,internet ,etc.. in the latest discussion list, this shows many my lotters do not use any other catagery.If it keep on goes like this what will happen?

Well in my case it's not that I always respond to the latest discussions.I pick up a particular interest in random and search in it for some interesting discussions.Whichever discussion interest me I respond to it.In this manner I have even given response very old discussions started a long time ago.

I always respond to latest discussions. I seldom search those discussions which had been posted for more than 3 days. Most mylotters tend to respond to discussions posted by their friends, and they pay no attention to strangers' discussions. I don't like this. I had tried to start discussions sometimes, only to find that not more than 5 persons respond. I've already been tired of this. Now, I only respond but never start a new discussion. When I respond to discussions, I choose those that interest me, not those posted by my friends. If everyone post like that, it will be meaningless to stay here.

I do a little of both. I'll do discussions that are right on top, but there are times when I'll go search out topics to respond to.

I always respond to the top discussions and then move on the ones under my interest. I don't bother digging deep anymore because I always find interesting discussions in the first three pages. Anyway, the goal is to make it to payout so I try to maximize my earning powers by answering as many discussions as I can in the fastest way possible.

I always go to the no responses first. I tried to help people out as much as I can. Then I will go to discussions. Then I will go to friends. I normally go to no reponses first because sometimes I can not remember what I have already posted to and don't feel like scrolling through the discussion to see if my name is there or not so I know if I start off with no responses my name is not there.

I usually start responding from the email notifications I have had in my inbox and once I finished them all, I'll roam around in my interests categories and start from the recent until I don't have time anymore to respond and when I am tired already. A lot of occasions that I only ended up in just responding in my email notifications alone. There has been a lot out there in my inbox.

I usually find enough interesting discussions to reply to on the first 3 pages. Very rarely will I dig any further. I do hit new discussion, my friends discussions and my interest pages, as well as discussion with no responses each time I sign on.

I will check the latest discussion. When I don't have something to say, I will make a deep search.

Most of my time is spent here in searching for interesting discussions whether they are new or old.

I go to the discussions that are currently active and also go to discussions on topics that interest me, even if they are not active or there has been little response. I notice that some of the best discussion topics are totally overlooked by the members and they simply get buried.It is in the interest of the

i agree with you,that a discussion gets lost out very soon here on mylot.the best way to keep a track is expanding your friend circle and putting discussions i have started at top so that if someone from our friend circle logs in he/she if visits our profile can know.with number of postings every minute here on mylot there are many that are bound to lie in wilderness.also its evident that few categories appeal most to users here.best way out is not to worry about things that are not in our control.

I know and understand what you are implying at. Well, it is so true. It seems that many are responding to latest and current discussions. That those previous discussions are left unanswered. For me, I do not usually answer or respond to latest discussions. I give time to new discussions and those with no responses. Some times, I would go to recent discussions or as far as on the number 10th page of discussions. I find the previous to be more interesting and with substance.

Sometimes I respond to the latest discussions, and sometimes I respond to older discussions. I have responded to discussions that are a couple of months old, half a year old or even older. As long as the topic is interesting I don't care how old the discussion is. There are so many discussions on MyLot and I think that is both good and bad. It is good, because it is always easy to find an interesting discussion to respond to, but the huge number of discussions is also a disadvantage, because many great discussions get lost in the crowd and don't get the attention that they deserve. It is true that some interest categories tend to get a lot of attention, and in other groups there are much less activity. I have chosen many interest categories and I always try to look at some of the smaller and less active groups as well, because those groups also contain some interesting discussions.
