When you are mylotting, how many Mylot windows you open at a time? I start the day with 1 or 2. But as the day progresses I end up having 4-5 windows. I may not keep track at all of them simultaneously. But its easier to reply one after another this way. What do you do?

I always start with 2 mylot windows... and would sometimes end up opening 6... and like you... this is so much easier when we are replying to a discussion... starting our own... or leaving a comment to responses... but it can get a little confusing sometimes... once i made the mistake of putting a response to a different discussion... so i had to make a comment to say i made a mistake... and apologised for it...

I am also experiencing that, I usually open 4 to 5 windows, but the other day, I made lots of mistakes, put tags on the wrong discussion, place response on the wrong discussion. That is why, I said to myself, I wills stop opening lots of windows in mylot cause I often made mistakes, but later on realize, that opening lots of windows will help me response to a lot of discussion more easily. What I need to do is to be cautious and read always before typing the response. Oh, I really, it was just me who was making mistakes, putting response on the wrong discussion.

i will be opening only one window.Because opening more windows will confuse me.It will be helpful for me if you explain how you manage 45 windows.I think it will save time at the same time it will help you to participate in more number of discussions.

I have only ever had one myLot window open at a time. I have several tabs across the top of my screen when I am on here because I am doing other things while I am myLotting. I had never though to open up more than one for myLot.

At most two windows. I have on occasion posted the wrong answer in the wrong discussion so I try not to open too many windows.

at the max, I always have two. Once I had three. I don't go for more, because they slow down my PC cos I dun have a faster net connection. It is just a simple wireless connection. Most of the times, the second window is my own profile page.

Well, not windows, but tabs. I normally have one or two tabs open, but when I find a discussion I would like responding to, or when I want to visit someone's profile or start a discussion, I open a fresh new tab for it, so that I'm not distracted from my home page.

I have never had reason to use more than one window for Mylot. I realise that it can speed up searching for relevant topics etcetera, but I visit Mylot for a peaceful respite from the hectic world and never find myself in any form of hurry.

I have never had more than two windows open at a time. One window is for me to start a new discussion and the other one is used to respond to discussions. I do not think that I would be more effective if I have more than that. Cheers!

i usually open two tabs for myLot. one for replying to the responses in my discussions and the other to reply to the discussions my friends started or to the comments in my responses. however, most of the times, i would open several tabs for myLot only. what i do is open all the alerts in my emails and then i would respond to them one by one. sometimes i would open a separate tabs for adding images to my interests but i don't usually do that because sometimes the picture i am upload goes to a discussion that is totally unrelated. ^__^;;

for me 10 windows are open. Most of the time that would be the first and last batch. But today, i got 10 sets to open. I believe I'll be on my last 2. Meaning I post for about 100 today. :D For me that is next to impossible made possible!

I keep around 3-5 MyLot windows open at a time. Yes it becomes easy to open the discussions simultaneously and reply one after the other... Initially i start with only 1 window.. slowly it increases :)

Hello my friend, I hope you are talking about "tabs"? Having more than one instance of the browser is very taxing on the RAM.:P I try to keep the number of tabs manageable - less than 10 definitely. As for how many tabs go to myLot, it is quite flexible. myLot can take up 1 or all.:)

Hi subha, while mylotting I use only one window for at a time. I use same window for posting disscussions and posting response to my friends disscusssions. To me it is difficult to have eye on two or three mylot windows.

After much trial and error, I finally learned that when replying to comments to my own discusssions, it is best to just open each person's response in a new window and then process them one at a time until all the windows are closed. this keeps me from having to scroll through all the pages again to see which ones I missed. This works a lot better. So it is usually only 6 or 8, but sometimes more.

I use around 5 to 6 tabs to do my work. but uploading and starting discussions is risky as the picture you upload will be uploaded in the discussion and not in the topic. tabs really make your work easier.
