Hello friends I know every one here loves mylot very much no one want to be chicked off from mylot justfor doing some silly mistakes which voilates the gudidelines published by mylot.com knowingly or unknowingly. I am also doing some silly mistakes and the reason is that I have followed other mylotters though on very first day I read the guidelines very carefully but I feel we must check it periodicaly. http://www.mylot.com/o/guidelines.aspx myLot discussion guidelines The DON'Ts DON'T Create more than one myLot account per person. Creating multiple accounts is grounds for immediate account cancellation and forfeiture of all earnings. DON'T Share PayPal or e-gold accounts. Please use only one PayPal or e-gold account per myLot account. DON'T Post comments in threads for the purpose of drawing attention to another thread on a different subject. DON'T Make multiple posts on the same subject for the purpose of getting attention paid to your issue. DON'T Post the same response to different discussions even if the discussions are related or similar. This type of activity will more than likely harm your reputation rating. DON'T Post copyrighted articles or photos please link to them. DON’T post copyrighted photos at all. DON'T Respond to a discussion until you've read all of the responses. DON'T Post "Me Too!" messages; add something of substance to the conversation. DON'T Start a new discussion unless you have something of substance to say. DON'T Start discussions asking for one word answers like “Yes or No”. DON'T Thank everyone that responds or comments on your discussion. This will not increase your earnings. DON'T Start meaningless discussions or give meaningless responses to try and boost your rating. Discussions like “What’s your age” will be deleted as well as short responses like “ok” or “no”. DON'T Start game and poll type discussions. For example, discussions like “How old are you” or “Let’s see how high we can count, I’ll start with one”. DON'T Post any links promoting other affiliate programs or that do not pertain to the discussion. Posting the same link over and over or posting links that have no relevance to the discussion is not allowed. DON'T Post discussions directed at one person such as “user1 what did you do today?” or “user2 where are you?” DON'T Post discussions soliciting a response for a response for example “+” rating for a response. These are against our terms and will be deleted. DON'T Post to “flame” other users! Being mean to others is just not fun. Anything derogatory that is directed at a myLot user is strictly prohibited. Just be nice and have fun! DON'T Request donations, post charity requests, petitions for signatures, chain letters or letters relating to pyramid schemes, advertising or solicitations for funds, or mass mailings. DON'T Post for commercial or advertising purposes, including classified ads in the discussion area. DON'T Post anything that discloses your personal information or others' personal information. We do not disclose it to anyone for good reason. DON'T Post similar or identical postings. Stealing posts from other users or posting the same thing over and over again will not help your myLot earnings. Multiple identical postings, even if legitimate, may be considered spam. DON'T Post symbols or languages other than English unless you are asking how to translate a word or a phrase. DON'T Start discussions on individual issues you are having with myLot. Please contact myLot via private messages and your issue will be addressed. DON'T Post discussions, responses or comments criticizing members for bad/broken English or bad spelling. Everyone is welcome at myLot, we have users from all around the world and they are welcome regardless of their proficiency with the English Language. DON'T Use all-caps or excessive punctuation. DON'T Post anything that inaccurately explains the myLot earnings algorithm. Our myLot mathematicians have worked long and hard on our elaborate payment system and we wouldn’t want any of our users to make them feel inadequate by breaking their algorithm in minutes. http://www.mylot.com/o/guidelines.aspx

Thank you skbadhan! What was read at starting at mylot, you have again provided reminder regarding posting norms! I call this norms because these are not hard and fast rules like things. Time to time changes would be take place to promote the community overall and that is the main plus point here on mylot! But I agree that one should follow these things to get really good reputation!

I'm not sure! I'm doing now at my authority and known the details by reading the guidelines. But small mistakes may happen and the punishment in the earnings may be projected. Sometimes ratings also suffer downtrend. Its casual for me to skip the minor guidelines by over confidence.

I read the rules when I first got here and it is good to go over them ever so often. That way if you do this you will be more sure of not breaking them. Thanks for posting these as I have read them again. I don't think I have broken these rules but to continue to not break them I will start to revue them ever so often. Very good discussion.

Reading the context of the rules, I don't think I've violated many of them. I'm a bit of a grammar purist, so I might use more punctuation than some of my fellow myLotters, but not to the point of being excessive. I have thanked everyone who responded to my discussions, but I also had something to relate to the things they said. I don't care to earn extra that way, so no harm done, I hope. One rule I may have directly violated is starting discussions with regard to issues with myLot. I started one when over twenty of my posts were deleted in two days. No one responded, but the discussion is still there. Anyhow, I did contact myLot directly with regard to the issue, and my words were terrible. I haven't received any response from them, but it hasn't happened since. :)

Its always nice to accept your mistakes. There is nothing wrong in doing mistakes, a foll is one who makes the same mistakes again and again. a persom who makes a mistake and doesn't correct it , commits a bigger one. happy my lotting

I agree with you. One of my teachers back in elementary had a poster with a bear (she loved bears) who was trying to raid a bees' nest, swinging at the bees buzzing all around him. It said, "Never make the same mistake twice. Plenty of new ones are available." Thank you for the best response! :)

I am still pretty new here, but I try to follow the rules. I try to make sure there are no discussions like mine when I start them, but I can not be for sure that I did not miss some. I think it is good,too, that we go over the rules every once in a while. Helps to keep things in line.

Most everyone on here violates mylot rules, what else is new? No offense, but most people on here love to cause drama, and breaking the rules comes with that.

I appreciate the update on Mylot rules. It doesn't hurt any of us to be reminded and I am sure most of us can find a thing or two in here where we have been in violation.

I know I've read that before, but I think I've unknowingly and unintentionally broken a few. Oops! Good think I read this for a refresher.

This is a really good reminder for us newbies as well as the people who have been on here a while. I read the guidelines but it is sometimes hard to memorize them all. So this is a good way to get the message out there. Good job!

It is always good to review the guidelines just incase something has changed.
