Here's an interesting question about myLot.....

My question is, Why do some discussions get a lot of responses just within minutes of posting it? I saw this one discussion about basically nothing but had about 30 responses just within 5 minutes of posting it? Is there a group thing that people have? Where people help each other's friends by responding to their discussions? Could that be a possibility? what do guys think?

Maibe it happens because discussions about notjing are the easiest to answer to... For example if someone finds a dicussion with the title "Which is your favourite colour?" to respond we only have to say the colour... These are the best discussions for lazy people...

when you post a discussion, when there are many users simultaneously logged on, there is a flow of responses and immediately, those discussions come on top of the 'todays top discussion' list and the process becomes recursive. So, it all depends on the timing i guess.

Maybe you're right..I maybe its all about timing. But would that be interesting if you belong to a group of friends with lets say have 30 or so members that would surely give response to whatever discussion you post? If income is what a person wants to accomplish, wouldn't that be a great thing? I don't know..Im just curious I guess..its just an idea I had..

I do believe it has do with who's on your friends list. Makes the most sense anyway.

Wow that fast? I guess they have supercomputers hehe. Seriously speaking, probably those 30 who responded were simultaneously answering the topic coming from different parts of the globe so it is still possible. Lucky for them to get that kind of response as for me I think I'm still happy if one or two responds to my discussions and I do rate them for their being generous to respond to my topics.

I think that is a combination of many things. First it depends on the number of person that are logged in when you post the question, then I see that questions about easy and simple argoment quite often have much more answer than the seriuos and difficoult ones.

Yes, friends do give a lot of help in replying to your posts. There must be a strong bond though, if you have friends, and you keep replying to their discussions, they will know that you are around so when you have a new discussions, they will participate in it too. Some friends will actually turn the notify on so if you have a new discussion, they will be notify by email and they will post in it. You are relatively new and so you can really work for better friendship in myLot. I have personally a few very close friends and we really help each other is posting, if I notice some "no response" posts, I will help to do something about it. Another way is to keep making replies to your own discussion, everytime you reply, it is put into the hot topics so when anyone log into myLot, your discussion will be seen so people response to it, which is why you can reach a high number of response in a very short time. Hope all this helps and have a good time in myLot

Here every one are for earning by discussion so many of them search for lively topics and interesting ones.The more interesting stuff you post the more are the responses.There are many people logged in at a time if the discussion is interesting and puzzling there is chance of many people responding to it at the same time and it wont take more than 2 mins to post the response.As said by you many of them help each others also..........

I'm not sure what makes a discussion as popular as it does, but I certainly wish I knew a trick to it. If it's just adding friends everywhere and having them post on it, then I think a lot of people are going to get friend requests.

I think some questions/topics are just easier to answer than others, and don't require a lot of thought.

Maybe they got response from their friends. Or they have better timing fro posting discussions. Or it could be they just a more interesting topic that people find it interesting to respond.

well, a lot of people go to their friends' new discussions and post on them first, and if you have a lot of friends, you're more likely to get a lot of posts.

I think they are junk discussions that give an easy opportunity to answer. See the thing is though people will get upset later because when mylot deletes the discussion the people responding lose their points as well.
