I normally don't do it; but as the time pass, I realized that a respond to their responds is very essential. It makes people excited to know what your opinion to their discussions in responds to what you have posted. what do you think about it? and what do you normally do? Good day Everyone. Have a blessed day my lotters

I do usually otherwise it looks as though you haven't bothered to read it... so they probably wont bother to respond to your discussions again. Its not a lot of effort for me because I dont start loads and those that I do start only get a few responses. At some point though, after a few comments back and forth, the discussion comes to a natural end, so I'll stop.

Same with me wizzywig. I like what you said, "it looks as though you haven't bothered to read it" because this is so true. It is like you are more focused on the quantity of posts rather than the opinions of the people esp. your friends. I noticed that sometimes when you have responded to a certain discussion and you like what you said, you often go to that discussion and try to look for the person's responds. if the person does respond, it feels good. And the "real" discussion starts. thank you wizzywig.

Yes, I think some people are more interested in receiving (& making) a large number of responses than in the content of those responses. Thats probably why there are so many "What's your favourite.....?" type questions and they get lots of responses because they are so quick and easy to comment on. I know that, on some sites, there is no payment made unless the comment has a minimum number of words.

I agree with you. I do not often respond to the discussions I started before, but later, I feel that it is better to give those responses a comment because it is way to show your ideas and opinions towards others ideas, it is way to have communications between you. Have a nice day!

Yes it is a good way that you have a good continuous communication with your responder. You are right as well that it can show your ideas with other people's ideas. You can have a healthy discussion on some issues. Thank you colydf

i do comment on people who responded on my discussion for that is what the essense of a discussion, for me it is a sign of appreciation, i appreaciate that they spend a few minutes of their mylot time and responded at my discussion. sometimes i dont comment back if there is nothing really to say, but i comment back often to show appreciation and to discuss with them

Yes you're true. "If you won't respond, then there is no discussion". Being appreciative makes people appreciate as well. Have a great day roni

Hi Jaymar, yes I do. I think it is courteous as well as a way to keep up my end of the discussion. In our in-person lives, this is how it would be, so I treat discussions here in the same manner. Take care and enjoy the day! Karen

Karen if there were somebody who influenced me to do this, It would be JPSO138 and you. JPSO is my friend who recruited me to do my lot and is a very gentleman here. He always make it a point to respond to every discussions he received and He influenced me to do the same. And You, since we became friends you made sure you can respond to my posts. I guess you also do that with the others. That is why I'm always happy to see your name in my posts. Thank you so much for that. I salute you maam.

Dear Jaymar, Let's make it simple....lol First of all you started a discussion topic. (you earn on this post) Then you received responses from others (you do not earn) You commented on their responses (You earn on your comments) SO, it is very important to comment on the responses you received for the topic you started. To keep the momentum, to comment on the responses is very vital because it is a two-way communication, it make friendship and active discussion, and thus a discussion thread that earns again! Remeber, you only earn when you comments or when you response to others myLotter topic of discussion. All the best, have you reach August minimum payout...?

Ok I got it irene. Most of the time i just responded because you are all my friends; so i always make it a point that i respond to your response. The thing is i feel frustrated at times when i posted to someone's post and the starter just don't seem to care. so out of it i try to make sure that i can reply to all my friends. But the monetary thing is very interesting. Thank you Irene.

I seldom to do that, but I reply to a respond that I think it is necessary to respond. Usually I just respond to 3-4 my discussion's responds. Good day, Happy myLotting.
