Dear Mylotters, I spend most of the time in commenting to the responses I get for my discussions. I am very grateful to you guys for your overwhelming responses to my discussions. I am really more interested in seeing the responses and your experiences from you people for the discussions I raise. Faithfully saying, nowadays I am scared of raising more than 2 discussions in a day. Really I get around 30 responses for all the discussions I have raised in the past few days.. Please forgive me for not attending to your discussions properly.. Day before yesterday I have raised some 4 discussions topics and one hits the mylot digest and three with around 30 responses. I am even tired of commenting back to your awesome responses. The thing I can't defer anyone of your responses. But at the same time I want to increase my post by responding to your discussions.. Sometimes I can't flag the discussions started by you as when the time comes to respond, it becomes old. Please tell me how can I manage this? Is commenting necessary? Because I use to go back and check for comments for my response. Are you of the same type? I need your suggestions.... Cheers.... Have a nice day always....

Hey Phillip, you have been busy! Lots of things to suggest here too but first and foremost, a discussion is NEVER too old. If it is still on the boards then it is worthy of a response whenever you feel like it, even if it is already three years old. Secondly, why do you have to start discussions every day? If you do not have time to comment on them and to respond on discussions by your friends then why not start them on alternate days? Some of us don't even start one a week abnd prefer dealing with all the responses before starting another. If you want to increase you post count then you can go to 'top', 'hot', no responses' and 'friends started' in the tabs above. Each time you respond your number will increase and if you leave a comment to another response it will increase too. You can do each of those actions once on every discussion which means that you have the possibilty of increasing it by 2 on every discussion. Off you go ...

Dear MysD, True.. Because I have a thought to take part in the party when it is with music and dance. I don't wanna attend the party after the core enjoyment... i do agree it's wrong but my attitude is like that... Secondly, as I said before, Sometimes I'll be bursting out with ideas. So, I'll post it before it fades in my memory... Some of us don't even start one a week and prefer dealing with all the responses before starting another. I surely take this great advice... Nice... Cheers..

Quit doing posts for a while! You make just as much commenting on others posts! You will see the difference! There's no rule that you have to do posts! tdemex

Dear tdemex, What you said is absolutely true. But sometimes I am bursting out with ideas to get into the mind of many people... Is it not correct? So, most of the time I forgets what I thought yesterday. So I do post a discussion immediately when it comes to my mind.. Please advice... Cheers

If posting a discussion is so important to you then you should, but posting a discussion comes with responsibilities! If you want a good reputation here, you need to comment on ALL the responses that you receive, if you don't it won't be long and no one will respond to you anymore, you should also rate the people that respond to you, you also should give a best response to people who deserve it! This is the way this site intended it to be! If you intend to be a good responsible Mylotter, this is the way to do it! I personally don't do many posts because of these guidelines, but this is my choice! I'm happy and earn quite well just doing responses! Give it a try is all I'm saying, it's your choice! tdemex

Wow!This the the only that is coming in my mouth now. I am very impress with the success you have here in mylot. Actually, it is really good to hear if you can make at least 5 quality discussions in a day, but it is not easy to manage because as what you have mentioned, you have to go back from time to time to check if someone has commented back on your discussion. It is actually not necessary to give comment on all the responses that you receive, but remember that all the activities that we do here are being paid off. All you have to do is to have time management. Make use of your internet.Do not just open one tab. So that it will not be hard for you, open a tab for the discussion you started, the discussion you responded,etc so that it will be easy for you to go back. I hope this information will help you. happy mylotting!

Dear rberon1985, Thanks for appreciating me. Yes I am having in the front page itself to sort my sortie the discussions I have raised and responded. I think you have raised a similar discussion before and I have done it after that and it was helpful. Thanks for posting such a nice suggestion in this discussion... Cheers... Happy Mylotting...

I understand your predicament. The way I work here is that I only start a couple of discussions a week and spend the rest of the time responding, to my friends’ and interests’ discussions. I will devote a day to commenting to responses and by being organized in this way I feel I try my hand at almost everything here except the tasks, I have been there but don’t have much time left for those. Don’t ever feel a discussion is too old. While it is here it is worthy of a response, I don’t mind at all receiving late responses. Everyone is in the same boat when it comes to time here and most of us don’t get impatient if it takes a little while to receive or make comments.

Dear Phillip, I am not an active member yet. I think once we start a topic of discussion we should comments all, do it stages by stages, because for me, I always interested to know what are the comments on my responses. Try to reduce new topic, I have reduce to one new topic per week and start focus on responses to increase my post to 500 so that can use 'copy & paste' feature. It definitely will be a great relief but I will try to stick to personalised, relevant and 'original' comments... Once I face this issue, I will come back to this topic for some reference and tips :)

Dear Phillip, I have send two responses here. I was applying the 'copy & paste' feature. I did some editing here and there. Just for some demonstration purposes...LOL Sorry...just 'testing'. All the best and take care :)

you have to responses on other discussion made by your friends not only with your own discussion as some friends may get the nerves out of you,if you do not try to make responses on their own discussion.It is like give and take exchanges..

Hello! I hope you are doing well and have figured out a system as to be able to get to all things you want to in mylot. I do not get back to people's discussions nor my own for awhile as I get so far behind, I get discouraged. However, no matter how long a discussion has been up I respond because it helps the mylotter no matter how old it is... I like to respond to everyone when I can, so as to assure them I am still willing to respond to them. I do like your discussions and will try to respond to all I can of yours today. I've got some 250 discussions in my inbox to go through!

Dear Phillip, I have 'PM' you... I face the same issues too. I think once we start a topic of discussion we should comments all, do it stages by stages, perhaps 20 comments per day and 10 new responses from friends topic or from 'no responses' or support 'new comer' since time is limited. By the 3rd day we should have commented all. Try to reduce new topic, I have reduce to one new topic per day and start focus on responses to increase my post to 500 so that can use the 'magic' of 'copy & paste'. It do help a lot but I will try to stick to personalised, originality and experienced related comments...only those unique 'quotes' or 'phrase' that I will use 'copy & paste'. You only have another 34 responses to go. I believe by tonight you should achieve it, if not by tomorrow...all your worries will be gone All the best and take care!

Hello Phillip. The commenting stuff would depend to you on how you want it. For me it's kind of necessary as i am pleased with the people who comments to my discussion and the discussions i post are the queries that runs in my mind. So the answers or responses of others is very important. Here is my schedule for the site. The first thing i do is to check my started discussion then after making some comment on the responses, i check out the other discussions tab so that i can respond and at the same time comment to the members. You are lucky to gather many members to answer your discussion so don't take it for granted and if you have time, try to converse to them so that you can see the member's character or personality. Maybe you could earn yourself a new friend.
