im new here as well so im not sure if i can be of much help.. i posted my first discussion the other night and it didnt do too well either.. last night i posted another one which is doing very well.. it seems to me, that people prefer to comment on topics they really have something to say about i guess..

Try posting in an interest which has alot of persons like mylot Or general and you would get a large response. Your discussions may even get more response after a while because it may come up again.

Depends to some degree where you post, too. On some lists discussions vanish so fast nobody sees them on the front pages. I've posted quite a few discussions with zero responses, and a couple with good reponses, if not in the hundreds like some. Try posting on your interests, rather than the big turnover lists.

Hi, Yes you should keep posting.. lots of people dont get responses right away but dont give up.. keep replying to other people and keep posting your own discussions. it can be weeks or months down the line and a question you had posted can still be recieving answers so just be patient. There are a lot of us who have created posts and have very little replies or even no replies at all on some of the posts.. just give it time and hang in there..

I feel that you shouldn't be discouraged by those discussions. As said, failure is the stepping stone of success, you have to learn the ways to get decent responses. The topic you start will get response only if others have got their views on that. Also try giving comments for your discusssions which will bring back your discussion on to the top again. Success is ahead for sure. So keep posting good threads!

Dont get discouraged your discussions are getting out but people mostly respond to discussions that are very interesting are your discussions interesting i know this one is. Also you might find out that after a while more people will start responding to your discussions it may just take a while.

I've been trying to just participate. I figure after a while I'll get more familiar with people and what's going on.

thanks, yeah sometime it so hard, but most of stuff i post is what i know or heard on the news. maybe more response would mean that my post is useful.

Well maybe you should try to post discussions with topics that everyone can relate to. I posted a discussion awhile ago and it got like 70 comments which caught me by suprise. Remember everyone likes to share opinions and personal experiences. Good luck!

I had about 6 discussions not being responsed at all, but I don't feel bad about it. The longer they stay, the more they were buried by newer questions, so sometimes it has nothing to do with the questions themselves.

I receive responds mostly from my friends. I have only 2-3 "popular" discussions. I think I would receive more comments, if my english were better. In this way I would be more popular. But I can not express myself usually. Maybe you noticed too,that I use the same words allways. Anyway good luck. And please take my appologize, that I do not comment your joke discussions. I hate the jokes...
