there is no topic that interests me! So this is the first time it happened. I can't see any topic that I like to respond. I dislike to see discussions of the same kind and often times will only be revised by other users in some ways. Some topics come in one liner and answerable by yes or no! I know I'm not getting bored of mylot! But there are lots of questions in my mind now. Are there only few members here now? Am I the only user who experiences this? What do you do when you can't find a topic that you wished to respond?

I've been wandering around today too. I have found quite a few good ones,, but nothing was really jumping out at me and then I hit a link in a tag and found one that I responded to and was totally embarassed when I realized, after I had hit submit, that the discussion was 4 years old! The mistakes of the rookie..sorry sarahruthbeth whereever you are.. I try to look at the one liners as a challenge when I have time.

A 4 year old topic? The topic started must already been inactive. But good thing with mylot is we are still earning on it though it has been there for quite a while already. Discussions never expire. Before I made this post, i actually answered to a one liner, "How many stick/s can you smoke?" -- and I just replied. 1 pack with a . Geez, is there any problem with me? Lol! Well, you need not to worry for the duplicate post. I am just wondering which one will be deleted, will it be?

There is nothing wrong with responding on an older discussion especially if the original poster is still active. They will probably be very grateful to you for bringing it back into the limelight again

Hi diana! I never said there's wrong with it. I was just surprised. I have responded to a 2 year discussion for once too.

y an__blue8 I think we all get to that spot occasionally but I can generally browse around through the interests and find something that appeals to me. I am never bored here as I have a lot of mylot friends and i love the back and forth play of discussions. also mylotting gives me something valid to do in my hours of retirement time rather than just sit and watch tv endlessly. this is much more fun.

Hi Hatley! Nice to see you again here in my discussion :D I actually browse for almost an 30 mins now and I have get information with it, as usual. But some topic are hard to respond and I can't express my thoughts on it. Lol! That's the problem. My friends here are having their "vacation" so I can't make back and forth of discussions with them for the meantime. Also, I cannot chat with them.

Well I've always got plenty to do because of my marketing program. But back in the days when I was first starting out and needing cash to fund my other sites, I would go good friends profile pages and look at their previous posts, I'd find some that interested me and type my A** off! tdemex

Yes, I have found that a time or two. Usually I think it is due to my mood and the fact that I am too lazy to try to find something that interests me. Sometimes I just "comment stalk" my friends to see whether or not something catches my eye. Other times, I find a user that seems interesting and see whether or not they have started any discussions that I might be able to comment on. If neither of these things works, and I have an idea, then I might just start my own discussion.

Another stalker is always welcome as long as they are fun and interactive. It keeps us from getting bored and gives us something to look forward to when we log-in, because we already have comments to respond to right off the bat.

Friends' profiles are a treasure box filled with discussions and I usually end up there if there are days when there are no new ones being posted. I also go and comment on comments on my own discussions and those by other users. I can't remember the last time I found nothing to do - assuming I ever did!
@yan_blue8 (1438)

I'd have to agree with you on this one, it is really hard to find a good discussion to respond to especially when there is those discussion that people start that are one liner. I hate those and I just pass over them sometimes unless it looks really interesting and I have something good to say about it. Normally if I can't find anything to respond to I just go to my other money making websites or just do some internet searches or find something else to do with mylot. Although, it may too because you are becoming bored with mylot, I think I am too.
@yan_blue8 (1438)

Hi trish! Thanks for responding here. So does that mean that you only have little amount of time doing mylot? or this only when you can't find any topic that you like to respond? Actually, I am not bored. I was just confused. But I guess I wasn't now!

]Yeah, I think that I spend alot less time on here. But I wish to spend more on here. Sometimes though I find it hard to spend more time on here. But mainly because of not being able to find good responses. Today is the longest day that I have spent on mylot . But I will try other things that the people have mentioned above and maybe I'll be able to spend alot of time on here. You start alot of really good discussions.

Trisha, in case you only check responses through notifiers and do not go back to discussions to see whether or not people have left replies to your comments in other "boxes", I just wanted to let you know that I left a comment for you above where you had commented in my response.

When I started out here in myLot, I used to go to the new discussions so I can pick which ones I'd reply. Soon I found that most of them are one line questions that could be answered by yes or no. Now, I just go to the discussions my myLot friends started. At least there is always something interesting there. That's why also I try to get a lot of interesting friends. Others... budlay ah!

Hey bounce! I wished you can tell me which are you from here? Hehe. Well, I just noticed the same thing with you too. Now here, when I go to my friend's list,I try to respond on their topics that I like. Probably now, its so happen that there are no discussions that I like to respond in it. And most of the time, my foreign friend's discussions are so hard and English is so deep that my response can be limited Nosebleed

Your not alone experience that, yan_blue. Because me too I experience that and some other members complaining about the one words comments or response because it seems they cut the topics without any comments to it... If not seen any topic on the first I browse all the categories to select which one interest me more. But most of the time I comment to all discussion that is email to me by mylot... Well, good to see here again...pal. Have a nice day

Hi Yan, Don't worry you are not alone. i do experience that too. but i never stop searching. from no response to new user, to my interest, to hot discussions and new ones. Then if i still can't find one, i will go to my mylot friends list and check at random for possible old discussions/posts. there i can find some and start the ball rolling. then i go back to my page and finally see some interesting topics again and happy to respond again. i don't want to miss a day without any input here in mylot. this is part of my daily life and i make sure that i have some for the day!

Hi msfrancisco, at least you are with me I thought I was just being paranoid or something. lol Well, i think I'm gonna do the same. Keep searching and searching til I got one. Being here for a month now makes me an addict for mylot. I never miss any day that I missed mylotting. Its part of my daily routine too :D One good thing is that I don't have a work now so I have more time for it.

I used to be like you; thinking that the topics posted aren't interesting at all. But I've come to realize that when I stop starting discussions, I find myself exploring more; old discussions, discussions pertaining to my interest and many more. Normally, I would check out friends started, today's top and also hot and also some of my interests section. In that way, I answer variety and I won't feel bored easily at all. After that, I would look for any random topics like whichever catches my eyes. It feels like hunting for discussions and it can be fun. If you feel a bit burned out, I advice you to log out, surf other sites and when you are ready, come back to mylot and you will feel the surge of discussions enthusiasm once more. Hope this helps, yeah..
@yan_blue8 (1438)

You are right zed. I should be exploring more, like my friends the discussions my friends started or even their discussions even before the new one. Should check out today's top too and the one on "hot" tab. I used to play in farmtown before but I quit on it. The only site I'm working with is trekpay. I do write articles in one site, normally 2 articles a day. I can finish them all before I sit for mylot. Are you suggesting to logout and surf other sites?

Zed-baby, you forgot to mention "comment stalking" certain people. Or perhaps you have lost interest already? I guess that could be the case, since you can't commit to one avatar for more than a couple of days, perhaps you lose interest in stalking after the same time period.

Hi drake! That is actually 3 years upon seeing your profile I think users before (who are tenured now) tried to make really good discussion without repeating the same topic over and over again. And I think they read the guidelines and the FAQ's too. lol! Never seen you when I first came in a month ago. Where were you? Are you not that really active posting here? Where are you in Iloilo btw? Keep posting! See you around!
• Philippines
10 Dec 09
with that 3 years, funny how active i'll be here in mylot for at least a month or two and suddenly disappear for almost a year whenever i work in manila. although most of the time, i open mylot just to read interesting topics and responses without posting and responding at all. but i think i'll stay here more often now. that includes responding and posting. honestly, it was only yesterday that i started mylotting again. i stay here in LEON, iloilo. hope to chat with you more. happy mylotting!

Well that's good. You still find time to open your account and somehow refresh it. Were you able to save your earnings by then? Or is all gone when you came back? Welcome back again! So are you staying there for good? Or will be back to Manila anytime? :D I know Leon. A classmate in college lives there too, but I just forgot their place. Ohh, I have a question? Which mango is the sweetest? Yours or Guimaras? Personally, I love Leon mangoes compared to the mangoes in Guimaras. But I was just wondering why they are called "the Home of the Sweetest Mangoes" when it could have been Leon?

Hi yan! It all depends upon the areas of your interests. If you have wider areas of interests and you have good number of friends, there is no dearth of interesting discussions here on mylot. One needs to search for discussion of his choice from the different captions, available here. Whenever, I am in a mood to respond, I find discussions of my choice, without any problem. Nothing is good or bad, however, thinking make it so, I would say. Happy mylotting. dpk PS - You may like to check my discussions through my profile page and may find those discussions interesting to respond.

Hi there, I just joined lately and well, you are actually right about having little discussion that interest you. Because one day I can be very busy responding but another day I will be trying hard just to find one interesting topic to respond to. Thus, when I can't find anything much to respond to, I just went around other websites and relax myself for my next discussion. I mean surely you would be drained of energy if you keep responding to the discussions every now and then. Thus, relax and get ready for the next interesting discussion. Cheers

Hi warvial. Welcome to mylot! That makes sense, I might just had my energy drained for responding to many discussions, but just maybe. But I guess there are really no good topics the other day.

If we are not in the mood, no topics may catch our interest. Try it, go through the same discussions again (from the mylot digset) the next day and perhaps you can experience the difference.

I’ve had days like that. I am not sure whether it is my mood sometimes, the fact there are no interesting discussions or both! On days like that I do the best I can and take a break if I need to. I usually come back and all is well again. Have you tried looking back at old discussions? A while ago when MyLot had a hitch and no new stuff could be posted for a day or two I went exploring into the depths of old discussions and came up with some interesting topics and made new friends!
