Old dog learns new tricks on myLot!

Now I've been on myLot for a few months. I thought that I'd figured most everything out here. But lo and behold today I figured out a couple things that I had never paid attention to before nor is it covered in the guidlines/FAQs or rules etc. The first is fairly simple. I responded to a friends discussion then they commented back about abuse. I got to thinking can one report themslef for abuse. I tried and never even noticed before that in ones own discussion there is no rating box so it can't be done. So I guess this individual will have to wait for someone else to report them. Hahaha. Now secondly I always responded to my friends discussions via the email notification. I had written a discussion whining about sometimes their page won't come up unless I log in (again) I'd written to admin never getting a reply to this. Anyhow I just figured out that in the emails recieved if one is to click on the members name it's a link to their sight. I still have to navagate to the discussion but so far no glitch having to log in again. Still desn't help me as I'm lazy and like to respond directly before reading others responses. I like doing it that way so then when I read others responses I get a feekling as to how well my response was. That's all I had to say. An old dog learned new tricks today. Hahaha! HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I am similar. I like to go straight from notifications to a response for my friends. Tghe problem being when there is a photo, which means I have to navigate to their site, find the discussion, etc. That is a good idea. If I read he discussion properly & notice that there is a photo, I can go straigh to their My Lot page from their name.

I am CLUELESS most of the time about things that members here discuss pertaining some technicalities and how to go about the site. I just know the basic and I just learned how to put some comments on some pictures which I was clueless before. Good to know that I am not the only one and that I already know somethings that others don't. he he he! Happy learning new things Grandpa Bob!

Hi Grandpa Bob, I'm glad to see you're still learning new tricks. I like it when I do too ... at my age (haha). I already knew about us not being able to rate ourselves, but never considered reporting 'myself' for abuse (if necessary) (haha). That'd be an interesting concept. It seems like your gardening for this season 'is in full bloom.' Enjoy, and have a great weekend.:)

Oh I love 'tab browsers' and have from I think my second or third day used them for mylot- great time saver for me as I'm on dial-up connection which is slow so I can have several pages loading at one time. Also helps when you find a bunch of discussions on one page you want to check out.

Humm, I had never noticed that either. Give me the link & I will report someone for you. Im felling pretty mean to night (evil laugh). I learned something new this weekend. I go fishing alot but I never fish on the bottom. Well, I did last night & caught a 15 pound catfish! I know that's a little off topic, but I did learn how to fish on the bottom. Not sure if I can be considered a old dog yet, maybe "middle age puppie learns a new trick" is more appropriate for me:)

LOL - I can honestly say I've never thought of 'reporting myself' so guess this old dog learned something new also :) I've never had a problem responding to discussions directly from e-mail notifications and I almost always do - the only times I don't if the discussion asks for a specific answer to a question then I will read to see if someone else has already answered the question then I will respond either agreeing or disagreeing with the one who answered.

congratulations on learning new features and or tricks. as well, thank you for sharing them with us as well. I always thought it a little odd that people can report abuse of their own submissions...it can be done via the photo image commentary... on your own photos there is no longer a positive or negative, but there is the exclamation mark!! so that you can report your own photo as being abusive.

Hmmm? I don't think I can report any of my photos as abusive as they are all clean and wholesome. Hee hee hee.Thanks for the response. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I am still in learning process on myLot. And have learned nothing myself yet. Thanks to all of you I know many things now:) ....I learned something when I was new but that's not something appreciated by myLot so better to not share.... I'm lazy too; but that makes me read all responses instead of answering myself *_* seems we are two sides of a personality!

I too faced some similar problems in the first few days. I think I learning a lot everyday now, through trail and error. I took thirty minutes to change my avatar, but once that was done, i felt so glad! I think it is good that you posted a discussion like this. it addresses many common problems. I hope many of us will learn from such experiences and become mylto savvy one day.

I think we all learn new things every day. I am learning something new on here all of the time! I am not the most technically savvy person and have missed a lot of things that should have been obvious to me on here and how to work this site! LOL, I too do the same about responding directly before reading others responses. I do the same!
