Okay let’s see if this works. This is my very first copy and paste discussion! I worked hard the past few days trying to reach this 500 discussion mile stone so I would be able to copy and paste. Are there others out there that think to reach the 500 count in order to copy and paste is important to them here on myLot? It was important to me that is why the last few days I was determined to reach that goal. I did it! Are you there yet? PS. Yes look at that I just copied and pasted that discussion up there. I am so excited. Does anyone else feel that joy of reaching the 500 mark?

congratulations! I do copy paste a lot, since my computer likes to randomly refresh the page while I am in the midst of typing it. This way I can type out a lengthy reply in word and then simply paste it here and be done without having to redo it 3 or 4 times.

Congratulations on reaching the 500 mark. When I first reached it I was excited just like you. But now since I have made it to the 500 mark I don't even use those perks. I had started uploading pictures to my response but I noticed I was not getting paid for them so I stopped. But I hope you do enjoy the perks and take advantage of them.

Me me I can't wait! I'm not that far off, thankfully, I'm sure I'll reach it either this weekend if I'm not too tied up or early next week. I can't wait, I usually prefer typing out my responses in notepad and then copy/pasting to my reply boxes, but I can't do that in myLot and getting used to writing directly in the box has been killer! Congratulations!! You can also now hover your mouse over your star and see a numeric rating, between 1-100 I was told. Great job! :D

Congrats for making upto 500 posts. Im almost there to 500 now, may be I will reach that target within 1-2 days, hoping so. Copy & Paste is a great power but ensure that you don't misuse it as you would have already know it.

I do not know what day I reached copy and paste, but I noticed recently that I did not have that warning when I wanted to change the order of my sentences. I am not the type who will paste an article from another website because of copyrights, but it is easy to put something that should not be at the end of my paragraph where it should not make sense at the beginning. I can use the spelling checker here, and that also makes it easier. I wonder if that came at the same time as copy and paste?

Congratulations for reaching the 500 posts mark. I'm far from reaching that mark. What are the benefits of having 500+ mark? I don't post that much since I'm busy with school. I only get to open and be active in mylot during weekends.

I'm still some way off the 500 mark. I feel like a disabled person when I cannot do simple copy and paste here, especially when I want to display a hyperlink, or duplicate a chunk of text from an article to show in my post. I just don't know why this feature is only made available to those who have at least 500 posts, because this functions seems quite fundamental in text creation.

Congratulations, Coffee! Well, I reached my 500th post some time ago, and I gotta say that I wasn't that excited. I hardly ever copy and paste anything here. When I am going to create a discussion, I do not copy nor paste. I create. I only copy and paste when I'm talking about some article, or some quote, things like that, you know?

Congratulations on being able to copy and paste after all your hard work. Someday I'll be able to c/p links. Also I like to type in a bigger box. It would help me very much because I have an eye disease and has eyestrain. I wish you a good weekend. Enjoy your new c/p status. :)

Good for you!!! While I don't feel the need to copy and paste that often, it is handy sometimes if I want to publish a link to an article in the newspaper I want to discuss, or something like that. My boyfriend is looking forward to reaching 500 posts so he can do the same thing.
