What is the effect if the discussion has 0 responses?

I have many discussions with 0 responses. Does this be considered as a spam or something in mylot? What happens to the earnings if there is no response for that?

You just don't earn anything from them since no one replied. I think myLot deletes them after sometime. But they're not spam, often a good question gets ignored while a stupid question gets a lot of answers. =\

I thought I would just add to your statement Yuki I find that when you post makes a big difference. Time zones can really play with your posts and the lack of response. The best thing to do is make sure you don't just start a discussion but start one based on your interests so that people that have the same interest can find it easily later. I am learning as I go and found these two factors play a big part. Time Zones & Interests

Thank you for the advice. :) Yes, I've found that starting a discussion about an interest is more effective than starting a general one as well. I hadn't thought about the Time zone, I guessed it didn't matter because I always see so many people answering so many discussions. XD I'll keep it in mind next time I start a thread. :)

You made a valid point "Time zone" and "interest", thanks for that.

A discussion with zero resonse is not counted in your rating (the number within brackets). But when you get the first response one is added to your rating. You don't have any zero discussions now. Try to make your discussions more general so that more people can answer it. If you ask "Did it pain when your kidney was removed", very few people can respond to it.

0 responses mean no body interest to discuss your topic. Maybe you not related to the group. Sometime you must wait untill someone give response to your topic...

There is a category for 0 resonse discussions. I will go to your page and check and see what I can answer and then that will get them out there and maybe someone else will find them too! Bought all I can do and maybe in time others will find them too. Have only had a couple of those and am thankful. Even some that I gave up on get a response a month later. It is odd. Have patience and good luck in the future for your discussions.

Me too I have one discussion with O responses. Well, I don't think that it's spam, to me it would be too sad to think that one person creates a new discussion only for money. I think that every discussion deserves respect. If no one answers to that discussion is because there is a lot of discussions here and we can't answer to all of them.

You are right. The 0 response discussion does not necessarily means a spam. :)

Sometimes discussions go unanswered because people do not understand what the writer is saying or they have no point to the discussion. Sometimes discussions go unanswered because they just get lost in the shuffle of other discussions that are being answered and placed back at the top. I can't say that I know why some of your discussions have gone unanswered. But it will not hurt your earnings. The only thing it does is not give you credit for that discussion until you have received one response. Don't give up hope. Try to get friends that respond to others with top quality posts rather than quantity postings. Also, if you do not answer your friends discussions, they are less likely to answer yours in turn. If you do answer their discussions and they never respond to yours...that is not the type of friend that you want. :) Welcome to myLot!
