This might sound like a stupid question but I am new to mylot (I just joined yesterday) and I was aowndering what the number under your name means. I've noticed that it keeps going up, but I don't know why. I can only assume that when it goes up it's a good thing, so in that case how do I make the number go up? I've searched through the faqs of this site and still have no clue what it is.

Hi and welcome The number under your name will keep going up as it shows the amount of posts you have made on mylot. Its a good sign seeing it going up but beware because if posts get deleted for some reason, the number will drop back down again. Once you reach 100 posts you will also get a star rating depending on the quality of your posts, and at 200 you can use the mylot code, emoticons, bold, underline etc. Keep up the posting and you will be at 100 in no time.. Happy mylotting.

Its the number of discussions ,posts you have made, the more you post, the better it is, after it reach 100 rating system will be enabled for your profile and after 200 you will be able to use smilies and after 500 you can do copy paste stuffs which is currently not possible in your profile.. happy mylotting..

That is the number of postings you had. Meaning every time you will reply or post comments it will count. But not all that counts just like you will just say thank you or take care. It will count if your sentence is more than 3 to 4 sentences..So make sure that your answer and replies are longer for you to earn big also.
