I have noticed that so many people have discussed on subject "Quality Discussions", "Response", "Repeated Discussions", "Best Response" etc. I agree with all as well that there should be quality and we must try to minimize the repetitions and go through others before starting new one. Would you like to share that if all conditions are observed then the new members would suffer alot! I think its better to strengthen the community by appreciating new participants! Do you agree? Your comments please!

I think 'repetition of discussions' is not what most of the users worry about, but the 'copy/pasting' form is what they are preventing to occur. Old discussions that are same from other members here are welcomed, but please post the exact topic title and the exact contents of it. Because it is just a waste of time and a form of cheating, we remind those others who are thinking that they can get away with it. We encourage all newbies to post whatever topics they wished to post, but make it sure that they are genuinely typed and originally of your ideas.

Very nice comment indeed. I really get it what actually people do. I was not well aware before that people cheat in this way. Copying the others contents is a crime, isn't it? Thanks!

I have also noticed that there is a lot of repetition in regards to discussion topics on myLot. I welcome all new members with open arms, but it only takes a few seconds to search a subject and avoid duplicate discussion streams. There are literally a limitless amount of possible discussion topics, so why repeat the same old stuff? A wider variety of quality discussion topics will make myLot a better place.

Yes, you are right. I mean, really, for encouragement. But do you think we can stop people by just repeating again and again the same request! The request for number of times would also fall in the same stream!

Ya it happens. We just think some topic and start discussion on it. After posting the discussion when we see the discussion of similar topics we find that this topic has already been started. This happens and if the case is that everyone should start an unstarted discussion then i think myLot's reputation will go down :)
