Why do many people avoid old discussions?

I had noticed that many people don't answer to old discussions, even if the mylotters who posted them are still here. I wonder what is the reason. I am using other sites and people read the posts I made 10 months ago. Here it's almost impossible to receive an answer to a discussion written 1 month ago. Why people avoid old discussions?

What I am doing, I check the most recent discussions and respond to them and interact them. So there won't be any chance I get to notice the old ones. Then some members, I do visit their profile and check their old discussions. But I confess, I won't do this way to all members.

@Sreekala that's the way I do is go on other peoples post page to see if there are something there that I'd be interested in if I can't find anything on the main page & there's some really good 1st to read if people would go there as well even if they are old 1's they would be counted for as well.

There is no point responding to old discussions that have become out of context.....but yes the general ones can be responded to.

I answer to old discussions, even if they are out of context. If they are interesting, why not?

I think because new discussions keep on flooding, so people concentrate more on new ones. I think only if we are reading a person specific discuss we read older posts...

Yes, if we visit their profile we can read many old discussions.

@dya80dya I've been on the site for tthree and a half years. If you tag your discussions it helps.

I don't know. Maybe because it's not the newest one.

Because you have to find them first. If they're tagged it's pretty easy, but that would mean they had to be tagged in the first place and many discussions aren't tagged. Or if you search on a specific user, that would work.

@dya80dya I've read a few, but then I searched for tagged discussions. The dynamics of mylot seem to be that people stay on the more recent discussions, I've answered some older ones but the response is usually better on the newer ones.

Because what is often seen is new discussions first.

@dya80dya Not really, people will answer old discussions if they happen to look active.

Because it is so time consuming and the site is not easy to navigate.

If we visit someone's profile it's easy to read old discussions.

One simple reason: they are covered by new discussions and mylottes have no time to scroll down

I do not know why someone would avoid old discussions ... I'm not avoiding anything, when I see a discussion and if I like a picture or a title, I leave a comment
