I never knew what to do except to look for other places where I can get the answer but when I look at no reply dicussions I feel I am alone and that is the main reason why I mainly look at no response discussion and reply them. Worst is that I can't even delete the discussion - it will be great if mylot as an option to delete it.

This happened with me a discussion was not responded for 9 months but i didn't think of deleting it, but recently i got response for the same. I agree we feel bad when we don't see any responses but don't loose hope.

Instead of wanting to delete a discussion with no responses, why not send a PM to your friends asking for their assistance? Isn't that what friends are for, to help each other out when there are problems?

hi dianna now am wondering in all the time I have been here I have never had one discussion that got no responses but someone maybe you told me to make friends and try to respond to them so that they would respond back and it did work too. I guess that was almost as good as private messaging friends which I never thought of doing,. lol I have always made it a pracice to respond to my friends first then to o hers in hit or miss fashion as I love to wander around finding really interesting discussions to respond to.,

If there are no replies in the discussion that you posted , then it's just fine since you can make a new one again , and this time you try yourself to post a bit attractive topic . We can not force other Mylotters to give a comment in our post , but we can only be grateful at all things happening around.

If I may add, it will be great to post a topic under a certain interest. Through this way, you can be somehow assure that someone will answer your posted topic discussion.

It hasn't happened to me yet so I don't know, I'm sorry. Don't feel bad about having no responses, once your more known here you will make friends and you will get responses. Also, try to post about things that other people can relate to. This discussion here is perfect, you got all of our attention! =)

hi kaik9999 When I have no responses okay I will jump up and down screaming frantically ""I made a great discussion how come you cannot be smart enough to answer it." No I am just teasing and I just go on mylotting and maybe make another discussion that is much better as I really tried to make it quality this time.I can also ask mylot admins if they will delete my discussion with no responses as its too bad to have anyone respond to it, Then it is up to mylot admins if they feel it can be deleted,.What else can any of us do as we cannot ask mylotters to respond as thats not kosher and is against mylot rules too..

Of course it will be quite disappointing if nobody replies to my discussions. Then I posted the discussions in vain because nobody wants to talk about it with me. I suggest you have your own avatar rather than the default one. Then you shall make more friends here since people can recognize you easily. Then you shall receive more responses.

Nothing really. I've gotten my share of no replies since I joined here. Occasionally someone might do a reply down the road but otherwise once posted, there's nothing that can be done from your end. Just have to keep on posting.

good day kai9999, i feel sad whenever i received no response in my posted discussion. though i know it is a normal thing to happen since everyone has its own interest. i guess, this is a part of the process, thus learning how to accept things like this is a must. as long as you keep on doing your best, for sure, your post will be responded very soon.

I always go to no response discussions because i know there was a time when i was new to mylot, i did not use to get many replies..so i want to help those people out there who done get replies to their posts..that does not mean i will reply rubbish.. Well, no need to delete discussions (in fact you can delete your discussion by reporting it and fill in the text area asking to delete..i hope that works..lol) Just wait and someday you will get replies..

I dont do anything when I dont get replies, I dont know how some get so popular and others are just ignored. I am not very lucky with creating popular discussions. I wish I was better but alas I am not. I just move onto another discussion and respond to someone else's discussions.

I never experienced not having anyone respond to a discussion I started. But I did have a few discussion that had few respondents. But it's okay. I guess there are certain things that i have in my head that doesn't interest most of the members. And of course, there is nothing I can do about it. I respect their "silence". I think it is much better that way than reading responses that would actually dishearten you. But do cheer up! Do not be discouraged! You'd be able to make one "head-turning" discussions, too.
