I've often wondered that too, so if I am in doubt I won't reply, which is a shame, but it saves valuable time searching through 5-6 pages more in some cases to check if we haven't already replied! Will be interested in what answers you get so I will know in future and it would be very helpful if we can see in a second if we have answered or not.

This was one of the first questions I asked MyLot (about 5 weeks or more ago and still waiting for an answer!) .. I did go through a phase of answering discussions twice .. both valid enough answers but not really want I want to be doing .. Instead of keep rejigging the look of the web site it would be far more help if they put a link in to show which discussions we have already answered other than in our profile pages .. it needs to show we've answered on the actually discussions .. So puhlease MyLot can you fix this for us !!

Hi Weemam, yes I have often wondered this myself unless I seen my name on it as it is very hard to know this as there is nothing really here that I have found but I do have a funny feeling that it could be in your profile section, if it is anywhere that is where you would find it. if we answer the same discussion twice I think that maybe we would not be credited for it, but I do not think that we would get into trouble from mylot as anyone can accidently make a mistake.

If we choose different discussion topics, I do not think that confusion would arise. On the other hand if we choose similar topics, say for eg, some discussion on a 'sore throat' infection, where I did see similar kinds of discussions started by different people then it is better to cross check with the responses you have made.

I think your hope is not true. This is truely a silly question. If someone else post this topic would you prefer to answer it?
