Do You Take The Time To Read All Your Responses?

I spend a long time here just reading the answers to my questions and rating each persons answers. I take this very serious, because we make money by our ratings. I was just curious if everyone does this or do you just rate everyone and move on. Or maybe you never go back to your questions and comment or rate them?

Great question! Yep, I read each and every one of them and rate them all. Sometimes if there are too many I might take a break to go do some posting, but I always go right back to it. I also give the posts time to die down before I rate best response. Someone said you get an extra point for getting it, so I take that seriously as well. Outside of the money factor, I read them because I appreciate the time people give me to respond. In addition, I report violators, the ones that will copy someone else’s post, or post gibberish. Again, it’s about the money and I see these people as thieves when they do this stuff.

I try to rate and comment on every response I receive.I have fallen to the side on one topic though(78 responses) but for all others,I am up to date as of now. I think if someone takes the time to respond,I should thank them for doinfg so.

I agree and I too have fallen behind as I get more and more responses, but I am rating them everyday.

Yes, I do go back to topics I started to see if there are any responses. Some users appreciate it much that we also comment on their posts and if I don't have anything to comment on the post I do make it a point to give them a rating of positive for the well thought post.

I do give time to go back and read the comments on my topic. I usually do after signing in and before logging out. I also screen comments made and if some made the most sensible answer i mark it as best response.

I most certainly do go back and read responses. Why start the discussion if you are not going to read the answers? And I rate as many as I see fit. I do have trouble going back to discussions I responded to. There are just too many posts to read through. But when it is my discussion, I read every single post.

I do take the time to read all of my responses as well as rating them. I try to answer to most of them, but find that sometimes people don't take the time to read other people's responses ... so things get repeatitive. I really don't like it when people when respond to every answer with a "thank you" ... I find it annoying.

Appreciate - If we want to be appreciated, so we must do the same thing to other. But people sometimes dont take any attention on this
Usually i go back to the discussion i've made once a week to give people responds of what they answer. By doing this means that we appreciate their comment. It can be a tool to appreaciate any other opinion for our real life

I try to read every responses I get from posters. But it takes time and sometimes I am late responding to them. I wish I have more time and energy to do all this posting. But I am still high spirited in this community and do the best here to earn respect as well as money. I don't rate people so much but after reading your saying, I think I'll begin giving ratings to others as this will give a positive image to me too. I am new and still learning. Thanks for the info.

I so my very best to read them all. I rate them as I read them as well. I can't get to all of them as some are months old. These I read in my email and delete. If I asked a question and chose best response 3 months ago. Then no I don't bother with it. Those people are just responding for their points. I love to mop my home and clean it daily. Dust has no room in my home. So No I don't have the time. I also have to run my business,raise my daughter,etc

I certainly do. If someone is willing to take the time to respond to something I said the least I can do is read it. Then I can see if they deserve to be reward by giving them a positive rating. I believe a site like this will benefit the better we get at use it and reading all posts made to our discussions is part of it. And I learn things that way.

I take the time to read what others posted in response to my discussions. I feel that these people took the time to write the responses so I should take the time to read them.

I read all of my responses, but it isn't hard because I don't get many! haha. I am out of luck when it comes to getting a lot of responses. I comment on a majority of them as well. i didn't realize this about the rating being connected to the amount you make for each comment.

Yes, I spend alot of time going back to my discussions. I rate all responses and respond to many of them. I don't try to respond to all of them because it's not needed. But it's the first thing I do when I log on. And when someone responds, I get a notice by email. I try to go right to the discussion to rate and reply if needed. I wish everyone would do this..it makes it a better discussion in my opinion.
