I am ready to get rid of alot of friends here. Over 600 or more friends, I know the ones that response and I know the one that don't. So if you know you response don't worry it won't be you, Thank you, so how do you delete because I am deleting a whole lot of people. So don't get an attitude, if you know you response and I know you respond, It won't be you. I think it is ricdiclist to have all these friends and they don't even respond to your post!

I just leave them in my list because it would take alot of my precious time to go in and delete the inactive ones. some may be back and be active again. I am proof of one. I was away 6 months last year and I am back now. Good luck.

You are right, It would take a lot of time, I wish there was one button you can push to delete 50 at a time. You are a regular with me, I enjoy talking to you. have a good week!

I do wish we could push one button to turn them on or off too. I had to go through alot of pages to turn the alert on one by one. That is time consuming. I really enjoy talking with you too Marcie. I hope you have a great week also. thanks, Stephannie

Hi Marcia. I've probably only responded to a few of your discussions. I don't remember if you've ever responded to any of mine. So if you want to delete me from your friends list, feel free to do so. I for one don't delete people from my friends list because they don't respond to my discussions. It is because I may find some of theirs interesting, so I'd rather have as many friends on here as possible. With more friends on ones list, it is easier to find discussions I want to respond to, not to mention one has a better chance of having responses to their own discussions. At least this is what I have learned since joining mylot.

No offense taken Marcia. I just think that people shouldn't delete others off their friends list, unless their was a more valid reason, like personal attacks being made. But that is just my opinion. :)

I'm with you 'sacmom'. I have many 'friends' but only reply when I have something to contribute to the interesting discussion. There are some who post dozens of messages a day which I have made inactive, but they are still listed on my friends list (I'm not sure the ramification, but I don't think it hurts anything, either.) Like you, with lots of friends, I can always go in and find an interesting discussion to which to contribute.

You have over 600 friends. Whoa, that is a lot of friends. It will take hours to go through all of those. I don't have that many friends in real life. Not even including family. That is pretty cool.

No it s not cool, It is a joke, everyone wants to be your friend, then when they get to be your friend that's it.

I don't usually accept friends that have less than 100 post. That is a rule that I use to decide if they will be committed or not. I know that 600 active people would be overwhelming to me. So I do not even try to get that many. I wish I could handle it. I have a hard enough time keeping up with the few that I have.

I am sorry that I have not been that active. I have not been feeling too well. I love your discussions and try to respond to most of them. I have many non active friends and am thinking about doing some cleaning of my own. (((hugs)))

I do not like friends who do not respond either nor do I like those who just want to show that they have friends and their interests are just Mylot, and friends. If they could put more interests before they request me, I would not mind. Also I hate getting flamed and do not want to be accused of something that I am not. I have a certain group that I always respond to and I put them on email. The rest I go to discussions my friends started. I do not have 600 = I have started to check interests on the profiles so me and some of them do not get into a big cat fight. :)

You are faithful, I am not talking about you everyone that came here are my real friends on Mylot. I just feel I don't need all these friends. They are only taking up space.

I don't have that many friends. Somewhere around a hundred maybe. But many of them are no longer active. I probably have about 30 that have requested to be my friend, but I usually watch to see if they are active before I will add them. Even the person I joined under is no longer active and actually post have gone down, so makes me think some of their discussions were deleted. I try to sign on daily, and respond to friends discussions. And I always don't get to them all, but try to answer a few every day!

I just finished doing the same thing and was surprised to find quite a few who had not logged in for over a month so I deleted them as well as the ones who had not been very active my cyber world.

There are a lot of people on my friends list that haven't been on for Months, even a year. I think I will just keep the ones that are active, and we know who those are? Have a good week!

You know I started doing that last week or the week before, but now reading the responses, I saw someone who said she was gone for 6 months or something and came back. I wonder if MyLot will ever get to a point where it deletes inactive people after a certain amount of inactive time - one year, 2 years or something. It would certainly make it easier for us..we don't have to do it and we don't have to decide.

That is true, some of these people don't participate at all we don't even know if they are still active or not. but one way you can find out is go to they profile, it will tell you whether or not they have been on Mylot.

you know i have to apoligize it takes me a while to respond to anyones posts. but rest asurred any post that i have something to respond to it to will have a response from me even if its months old. it is very easy to delete friends off your list all you do is go into your friends lists and it will have an option to delete them its jsut a long and tedious task and it might be easier jsut to keep them on. keep in mind that jsut because they don't respond to all of yours if they are giving you something to respond to they are still helping you i delete some that haven't even really been active for a while they had no discussions at all and they weren't responding to any either it was like they jsut joined to see what this was and then left

Well, you don't have to be too sentimental in business. This is not a traditional business, but you are paid for opening a discussion. So, if you delete your friends, though not a big loss, you don't get paid for starting a discussion. I would keep them as friends and let them respond if they are interested in my discussion. I don't always have an answer for them, it is because I'm not familiar with what they are talking about, I can't participate because I don't have enough knowledge. Not that I'm sorry they might delete me, but I would be more understanding if they don't agree to what I say.

Hehehe.. Sometimes mylot members don’t respond to discussion here through their friends. I too honestly don’t do it that way except when I’m out of discussions from the main window I precede to my friends post. But I know that from the main window I have some friends that are on top of the discussions and I’m sure I’ve responded their discussion as a friend of them.

I certainly know what you mean. I have several invites from newbies that I let just sit there. It is realy time consuming to clean it up. I just stopped. I am not on as much any more but I do come on and check on my friends that i know usually make great discussions. Good luck with "cleaning house".
