Frustration and beyond...

Okay this is really getting to be a serious issue with me as of late. If you've read the past few discussions you know the issues I'm having with mylot glitches and also about my contacting them without any reply or repairs to the glitch. So the issue is now why am I still here seeing I can't add comments to some of my discussions that have responses and ARE NOT DELETED? I repeat these few discussions are not deleted they just dont show the response when I click on them. So I have many great friends here that have kept me wanting to stay. I have experienced the same slow down of discussions as all other members seem to have experienced. The pay rate seems to have dropped drastically as well. I hate starting new discussion for fear that when others do respond to it, it also will become a discussion that I can't add comments too. So why should I stay when I have these problems? Especially the glitches and the administration doesn't reply? I've sent 5 contact letters in the last 5 days and have yet to get a reply or the glitch taken care of. This is just ticking me off to all ends possible. I have not been around a lot due to these issues/problems yet I still hang around hoping things get back to at least 50% of how it was 8 months ago. Anyhow I am done whining etc. I only hope I can add comments to this topic. I am at the point to where I feel like just starting discussions about anything and everything and not repsond to other discussions hoping to get paid that way. But that's not me so I won't. I've even gotten to the point to where I don't add photos to interest groups like I used to. Just how ticked off I have been feeling is all. So tell me if you're having these wanting to leave mylot thoughts, what keeps you around? HAPPY POSATINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I know I had a terrible time trying to post a picture under comments from my friends but it wasn't just yours. I did have a terrible time posting yours but also some others from my friends list. What keeps me here is I have made some very valuable contacts here on myLot. I don't suppose I will ever meet any of these fabulous people but I sure enjoy the chats. Being a caregiver yourself you will understand this but although I am not an overly religious person I have had lots of health issues and I had a lot of people pray for me and I believe it did miracles. Someone said one day here on myLot,"you need to realize these people are all a bunch of liars, they don't really pray for you." Well my friend that is not true. Not only did I pray for you, your dad and several others I know my myLot friends have said many prayers for me and I guess that's why I'm still here. God knows the earnings are Not holding us here right ? Take Care grandpa Bob and grandma Deb.

I also am a serious person when I say I'll pray for someone here. I've even posted the prayer as a response at times. I am just sick of not being able to answer peoples question that they post as a response in a bunch of my discussions. It's only a few too. But the same ones day in and day out. Yet no answer as of this time from admin either. That's the worst part. They want members here yet they won't help them out? Come on mylot admin get with the program dang it. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Just the man I am looking for!!! Another friend of mine had this same problem, and she got a solution from one of her friends. She sent it to me in her private message, and I will go copy/paste it now to send to you. That would take care of one very small frustration for you, I trust. I did not get the notify of this discussion, at least not yet, so I was out looking for you. Hang on, I hope I can help.

Gerty if you do find the friend who has the same problem I was able to fix it. A friend suggested I clear the browser history I did it as follows: tools, clear history, (I only cleared temp files and cookies) then I posted a new discussion and everything was normal again. Hope this helps her. This is how my friend fixed that problem. Hope it is helpful. Heather

Oh yes - I am so frustrated with it, I hardly come here anymore. The only thing that keeps me around is to keep track of friends I have met here. I don't have any of the glitches that you mention. My main gripe with it, is that the majority of good posters have left, and the standard of discussions here these days is very low and I can't be bothered with them! Plus, the money has dropped so low, that someone who works full time with no access to the Net during working hours like me, just doesn't have a hope in hell of making payout - so although I was never here just for the money, my interest has waned considerably over the past month or so.

I know EXACTLY how you feel Grandpa Bob. I have a discussion that is still there, but I can't see the responses even though it says I have 6 or so. It really urgs me as well because I am not the type of person to not answer when my friends take the time to repond. I also have problems seeing the responses to other peoples discussions, but I know they are there! The weird thing is I went over to a friend of mines who just became a member a few days ago ... she can see the responses to my discussion perfectly when logged in as herself, but as soon as I logged in it was back to seeing the discussion but not the responses. Then my friend asked if I wanted her to answer the responses for me, but I said no incase it is against some kind of mylot guidelines. I too am getting very agrivated and felt like why should I be here! Just hang in there hun, it can only get better! Hopefully these glitches will be a thing of the past very soon! Take Care *hugzz*

I now have 5 discussions that I can't add comments to the responses. And some mebers have asked for more photos etc. So this glitch is costing me a bit of earnings here. Mylot seems not to care as I yet have recieved any type of reply from them. I sent another contact letter. Grrrr!! HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I finally recieved word back from them and they said ... " We are aware of this problem and our technical staff is working on a fix for it. We do apologize for the inconvenience, but we do appreciate your patience in this matter. We will get it fixed as soon as we possibly can."

I swear mylot must really have it in for you, Grandpa Bob, with all the problems you've had for the past several months or more. I'll contact mylot again and see if they will respond to me. They did the other times I contacted them on your behalf.

Your very much welcome, Grandpa Bob. I'm wondering if maybe this time at least, they weren't getting your letters being all the glitches you have been putting up with. Hell, if you aren't able to respond to discussions, it could be your PMs were getting lost as well. Just hope now everything gets cleared up for you so we can go back to enjoying your great discussions. :-)

And btw..I did start a discussion about lilypads. Of all mylotters, I felt you would like it along with the pics I plan on posting IF anyone would respond to it. lol Started almost a day ago and not one response. I'm wondering if it could be an almighty glitch that noone but me sees it. Now if I can just get with the program, I wanna take pics of my 'jungle' garden to start a new disussion with. I keep forgetting till it's too dark. ughhhhhhhhh!!!

i don't believe i have yet experienced any of the glitches that you have, thoguh i have not really checked, either. SO it is possible i have... Honestly, what keeps me here is the opportunity to get my opinion out there and to be a b*tch to people who deserve it. i don't take anything from anyone and i don't like to see other people get abused, either...so i will stand up for them.

Check my newest discussion. Seems that the interest "children" has been changed to "had children" for some reason. Just more changes unknown to members in advance.

Yeah, i saw that and thought how strange that is. i don't understan why that would have happened. i mean, isn't the "had" implied? The category is "things i have done wiht my life." Yeah, children...something you have done with your life. The "had" is imlpied in my eyes...

Again I say don’t leave Grandpa Bob- I will miss you greatly- OK so what keeps me here- It’s friends like you and many others- It is keeping in touch and seeing what is going on in your lives- It’s the chit chatting we do here- all of us- It’s the posting my opinion and people reading it- makes me feel good- But then again I’m not having these problems that you are- I can’t for the life of me figure out why you are- Makes no sense! But again- I say stay- they will figure it out- hopefully—and keep posting discussions.

I cvan add comments to responses. They obviously have a glitch that is affecting some people & not others. Another of my friends posted a discussion today, & she can not write comments either. http://www.mylot.com/nr/newresponse.aspx?qid=1224533 The earnings are pathetic.

I really enjoy the friends I've made here, Grandpa Bob. Friends like you, and I do love your photos too, by the way. Although there seem to be a lot fewer discussions, and I still don't know if my notifications are working correctly, I'm planning on hanging in. In the end, it's the friends that matter the most to me. Another thing, before we know it, fall will be here, and many who've been otherwise occupied may become more active again. I do hope you get your glitch fixed. Take Care.

That is the ONLY reason I am still here also is the friends I've made and gotten to know so much about.

Maybe my friends that's why I'm still around. I know we will nothing to do with earnings but still I'm here to respond and to get along with my friends like you. Even we experienced these kind of glitches and problems we still help and comfort each other here. And I will missed it when If will leave mylot.

I am sorry that you are having such problems. I don't know whats wrong with mylot admin these days. I haven't been spending much time here lately. I have been over at Gather. If you aren't a member there, maybe you might want to check it out. Many other mylotters are over there.

I know exactly what you mean web, because I have been having some of the same problems. On one Saturday I posted nearly all day long and had only made about 40 cents the next day. I feel like 8 hours should earn you more than that. I have thought of leaving, but I also would miss my friends. Maybe if enough members complain they might start responding.
