I could not turn on the notify buttons on for all of my friends due to some unknown reasons, I feel sorry for it because I do not know who is starting a new discussion, I am do this now and i will turn the buttons on for everyone, I had finished turning on some of them and I found out that my earning increased in the past few days, may be it is because I can go to the reply page directly, and then I will scan thorugh the replies of the other members. I will also rate all the replies positive as I want to maximize the earnings of other members,I will be happy if someone reply me. I will also reply to the discussions by my friends, I will try to answer as many as possible according to my interests. How about you? Do you turn on the notify button? Is your email swarmed with mylot messages? How will you rate the replies from other members and how will you choose discussions to reply?

That is good to hear. I am glad you got them turned on. It isn't your fault. I have mine turned on also for 516 of my friends so far. My email inbox has about 6000 messages for me to go through but I have put them all in a folder that I have labeled as Mylot so it does not overcrowd my mailbox. I go through as many of them each day as I can. I was sick for a couple of weeks and got way behind, but I will eventually get caught up on them. I'm also glad that your earnings increased. Mine went up a few cents also. I rate everyone with a positive also because I want to help them increase their earnings as well as mine also. I will respond to all of your discussions if I can relate to them. I skip over and delete the ones I cannot respond to with some good knowledge.

I think your earnings increased because you are replying to more discussions now. I don't keep track myself anymore but you can try keeping track to see this is so. It probably is the reason though. :P

May be , because my internet connection speed is very slow, it may make a huge difference even if I have one page less to load.

I think it would make a huge difference especially on a slow connection. I used to be on a slow speed internet where I used to live, because they don't have high speed available there, so I know how long it takes for the pages to load. And from saving one page of loading for every conversation you want to get into, that's a big savings :) I'm happy to see that you found a way to make your earnings go up!

Yeah, it improves my replying speed much and save the time of loading, it is much better than when I have to go throug them from the user profile pages, also I can keep up with the discussions of my friends much easier.

I have a folder for my lot in my mail. I go to this box and skim through for my favorite posters. Then I respond to them first. I do this because some people post to my interests. I them go back to what i need to be doing online. Maybe I'll drop back in later on. I then start to delete the people who have those garbage posts. You know what I mean. I find that it helps me keep my sanity. If I get days be days behind? I will delete the entire box. Then just go to my lot and respond to post my friends started.

I have my buttons on for my friends all the time, and I never have time to go to new dicussions from people I don't know but it is fine, there is so many discussions from friends that it does keep me busy. I find that I am getting paid more as well.

I´ve got the notify buttons for all my friends on. I don´t mind if there are a lot of emails alerting me about the friends who´ve started discussions. In fact, I find it much easier than having to use the site´s feature: "Discussions my friends started", because the posts there are all mixed up. It´s a good thing that you´ve decided to rate all the responses you get to help other members earn more money. I do the same because I believe that everyone who made the effort to reply deserves to be + rated. Generally I spend the time here answering my friends discussions. I don´t answer them all, just the ones I can relate to. Keep up the good work. Dana (one of your friends) :-)

The notify on button is really that useful. I must take time to study it. After all, it will not take so much time maybe. My children can surely lend me a hand here. It just so happens that I am not good with the intricacies of the internet and when I learned that the notify on activates my email all the more, I just simply forgo with it. It seems that I will be forced to be learning again...Thank you for this, dana.

I only turned this on whe I got my 1st friend. I didn't even see the button at first then I came across a posting that todl me I should do it. I don't know how it works but it's a good idea especially if your friends are into the same things.

The Notify buttons for my friends are actuallu turned off, but I always visit the "discussions my friends started" first everytime I log-in to mylot and answer those I haven't placed a reply into.

I turn the notify on until I start getting a ton of notices that are all drivel from the same person, then I sort through my friends, find the drivel-poster then turn the notify off on that person.

I haven't used the Notify button for when my friends start a new discussion I didn't want my inbox bombarded with Mylot messages I already have enough emails to keep up with... I always go to my friends discussions and try to respond to as many as I can though....

When I first joined mylot I had the notify feature turned on but I very quickly turned it back off again as I was being bombarded by emails and it was affecting my work!! I do however spend most of my time searching through discussions by "Friends" and these are the ones that I will generally reply to. It is only if none of their topics really grab my attention at the time that I will look elsewhere for topics to respond to.....

My email account is swarmed with notifications of my friends posts and comments. For a while there I was not receiving any emails but it is back up and have so much to try and catch up on that it is hard. I have my notifications on for almost all of my friends. The only ones that I have turned off are the ones that go around spamming or creating topics that violate the rules. It is hard to keep up with our friends topics without the notifications. I choose the topics that interest me or that I can give a good reply to.

Exactly, I got lost with some of the discussions from some of my friends, and I am not able to reply to some of them since I do not know when they had started up a discussion, I even got deleted by someone because of this reason.

Even i didn't turn on the Notify button for long. I guess 2 days back i checked my friends list and turned on the notify button which kept me busy as long as i was online. I posted some 30 - 40 responses each day. With all the notification mails pouring in i am checking them in time and posting replies for those discussions which i like. I am rating all the replies on my discussions and will rate the discussion which i am replying for.

I am always turning the notify button on for all my friends because I like reading last discussions from my friends here...for example I am replying to your discussion after reading the message I found in my mail box...the problem is that the system is not always working well..and there is another problem...sometimes I cannot cope with all the amount of emails I am receiving...I think I have to seek a better way to deal with mails coming from my lot..I like rating positively the replies I receive or the discussions I like and I reply to all the discussions I find it interesting...I am used to starting from my friends to go to similar discussions from other users

:) thank you, of course I cannot answer to all the discussions after I turn on the buttons, but I will be easier in choosing the discussions and save a lot of time.
