Why Do People Not Answer Their Own Chat Questions?

Ask a Question

This is really starting to annoy me. It seems like they put on a chat, claim their points but don’t get involved anymore. I also ’like’ when I get a reply and respond if it needs one. Isn’t a chat room for chatting and not just for asking?

It is. I make a mental note of repeat offenders & don't comment on their posts.

I don't even want or need a reply often but I do appreciate a like, to acknowledge they've read it.

Glitterandgold That’s a good idea to not acknowledge them, that way they won’t get points and hopefully understand. It’s not all about points but enjoy the chat room on here.

I like to get involved in the subjects on some of the chats but not others & I have noticed certain people putting questions on & not getting involved in the chat on the post they have created!

janphoenix51 The reason I put a chat on here is usually to get help with something or to get peoples views. If for example I think I’m in the right about something, I will ask on here and see if I can see it from someone’s side.

I think this annoys most avid chatters. I counted 5 chats from someone who only replied once on one chat. I feel it is quite rude as I would hope no one would ignore someone who spoke to them in person.

Lynibis Apart from getting points what’s the point if you don’t want to hear what other people have said. This is my first port of call in the morning.

eyeballkerry me too! Also they can get their daily points quota by replying so it's win win.

Lynibis Exactly, I enjoy this part of latest deals and having conversations. I can express myself and also get honest feed back.

I think if I initiate a chat topic and people are interested enough to reply to me it’s only manners and polite to either engage conversation but at least acknowledge them. Otherwise it’s just rude.

JLouM Exactly. I can have very nice conversations with members on one subject that can go on a few days and get slightly sidetracked.

I have noticed that too. It Is to get their points I think. I could mention a few names Including someone regular on the LD Team that never answers me, that posts regular things too. I dont bother answering now. I mean, whats the point.

Emerge11 yes, 3 within 5 minutes yesterday. I just don't understand the need as there are plenty of new topics daily and they get pushed down before they get started!

I thought the rules had changed so that you only got the points if you commented on your own post? I know it has to get a certain amount of comments before you get the points but I thought you had to reply to at least one comment too. Maybe I'm wrong.

I always reply to people when I've made a chat post. I have noticed that some people never reply to comments on the chats they have created.

MrsCraig I thought that too so we must have got it from somewhere. I think it should be enforced otherwise there may be some who just keep posting topics and then ignore them. People respond in good faith so shouldn't be ignored.

Lynibis I know that some people have been given warnings about not responding to comments on their post and told the post would be deleted.

MrsCraig Yes I have seen that too. But I also noticed that one of those people has not posted anything since.

Lynibis maybe they stopped because they got the warning and they didn't intend to reply to comments so just hasn't bothered making any new chat posts.

Lynibis That would be a very good idea if members had to respond to their own chats to receive points. Maybe a time for change.

eyeballkerry I'm sure that is the current rule though. I'm sure I read that members had to comment on their post to get the points. Maybe I read it wrong.

I don't tend to post a chat question but when i've taken the time to respond to one then it would be nice to get a response back or even just a thumbs up. But must admit i've noticed this happening more often.

At the very least I like to leave a like to a comment and more often than not I answer them. My favourite thing is to leave a gif to allow them to interpret how I felt about their comment. I have a few favourite member I love to see their image come up as I know I will be more likely to have a rapour with them.

EmmaWright762 ...Yes , I love seeing what GIF you post, I also love Telmel's witty comments..

You're GIFS are great!

I LOVE the banter on Latest Deals, Tumblespots & I have bantered sometimes..I have only had one childish comment from someone a few days ago & I certainly wasn't rising to her, she's not important to me & isn't a regular I recognise..
