Do you think that the number of discussions posted will drop...

...given the new guidelines set by mylot? Or increase? Or do you think that people will just adapt themselves and start generating quality topics? Or ignore the guidelines completely and keep going the way they are? I have seen a number of "favourite" discussions made that have been outlawed, and "charity response" discussions started... So I think some poeple are either indifferent or oblivious to the decisions and changes and things will continue much as they have been with only a slight improvement...

From what I've seen of so many discussions today, I think that many people will just ignore the guidelines and continue to post the same "discussions" as always. Maybe the result is they'll get weeded out and only those who do try to follow will remain.

That'd be good, at least the mylot community will then have uniformity in its members, we'll all be genuinely interested in posting relevamt and unique discussions and be interested in posting relevant and meaningful posts. Fingers crossed that is the purpose of introducing these guidelines...

Ok to me the last mylot was much easier as they didnt have much features. All you had to do was post. Now there are so many features that I find myself just looking around. Less posting. When I would have been posting I now look for photos to upload because you get paid for those, friend to add, looking at lists, profiles etc. But I am now adjusting and focusing on giving quality responses that count. So I guess others would be the same as me and get sidetracked.

Yea your right the other site was much easier. I find myself uploading more pictures to my profile now. I can make maybe $2 a day i uploaded probably 50 pictures a day. The pictures on my profile are easier to do then putting one with my responses.

I hope that the MyLot staff decides to actually start deleting topics. just not my topics because I am not spamming.

Yeah, but as they delete them, I'm noticing my ratings and earnings decrease slightly, I didnt reply to that many "useless" topics so I havent been affected all that much...

I really want to see some discussions about things. I want to know what people are thinking. I think mylots wants to be able to create good page content because content is king in the search engine world. And the more traffic that you get the more that you can make at affiliate marketing.

The discussions have dropped somewhat when they first changed the site. It once was allot faster people to spam and now if you have to response windows open you can't submit your response. For the most part people are still spamming as always. Mylot doesn't want to delete to many post because then the site becomes to strict. What they are trying to do is a balance between the to. Every large and popular site has massive spammers i just mylot would give quality posters more.

I seen the same discussions over and over again for the two months I've been here. If you don't want to answer them then that's your choice. I don't think anything will drop.

May be there are some changes in the quality of discussions after the new guidelines published, but the improvement is so subtle. Just look at new discussions and the short -1 or 2 words- responses still fill mylot, I wonder what else mylot staff can do to enforce the rules.
