Fellow myLotters, Yesterday I posted a discussion that there are 28,800 users on the site, and the other 65,000 who use it are inactive. I found this out when I went into the "users by rating" link in the bottom left hand corner. Each page lists 50 users by rating, but I noticed that after page 557, the pages were blank and had no users. That means that out of 1,847 pages, 1,291 pages had no users at all. Here's my math: 1,847 - 557 = 1,291 (number of blank pages) 1,291 X 50 = 64,700 (number of users missing) 557 x 50 = 27,850 (number of users accounted for) 27,850 + 64,700 = 92,550 (total population on the site) So after I received several responses to what I discovered, I sent myLot a message asking where the other 65,000 users were and they responded that the users were inactive, and they only show the active users on the site. But guess what?!? I just checked the "users by rating" link again, and now ALL the pages have users! So my discussion and message caused them to put the missing inactive users on the listings. I actually caused a change on the web site! Cool huh?

You right. I have checked the "users by rating" and the last user that has only 1 rating is not a new user, but they all are an inactive user that last loggin at almost 1 year ago. So I think you really change this site, that is very cool congratulation. By the way I'm curious why they are decided to out from mylot.

thank you to investigate this problem.why don't so much members inactive.i think the most reason is they have apoor english,and can't read,write,and speak English well.i have four referrals,all of them inactive,i ask them why they don't post,they said they cann't post discussion,because they can't write English to sentence.so they gave up to earning in mylot

Congrats on your influence on the website! I followed through on your discussion about the number of active users on this site and I was very intrigued. I also like that fact that you were able to tell me my ranking among all the member of the site. You are quite clever. I am looking out for other changes you may bring along. Thanks! :)

It is cool that one person can change the site. But WOW you put a lot of thought into. If it changed the site then it was worth the effort.
