Is this actually true on MyLot.com?
October 1, 2008 6:23pm CST
Hey guys! Just heard around here since I have been busy, that all the users are actually grouped in 4 sorts; 1 1st Generation 2 2nd Generation 3 The non-activ users Now here the question..There has been going some rumours around, which has been through my head a couple of days now. The MyLotters with high-post amound are ignoring the low-posters amount, and don't give any attention to them. Though they give attention to their own fellow high-post amount users! what I don't understand is why WE are doing this? Because I think we should all just live together with no problems, and react under everyones discussions, low or high post doesn't matter in my opinion. Just take a look at it; take some responsds from a low post user, and you'll notice, maybe there's one person with 8000 or 5000 posts who would react on it in 1 of 10 of them, but you wont find many of those! Though now if you take an other high user discsussion, you'll see many posters with more than 10.000 posts reacting on it. I wanted first to wait with starting this discussion, but now I can say surely that this IS right! Just take a look at it..isn't this actually some kind of far racism? Ok, not like BIG racism, but still there's something in it.. How do you think about it..or do you even care about it? Share your thoughts here..

This is the first time that I have heard of this before. It has to be a rumor. I know, I don't see the point in doing classifications.. I will post to a response whether it has an high amount or not. It does not matter to me.. The way that some myLotter's carry on is pathetic!

It is my first time to heard this here in mylot.. I never though that there's such kind of issue in here.. Oh well, for me I don't care whether those in a high post don't want to response in my discussions and besides i can't force them to response if they don't really like.. As for me, I don't care whether you are in low post or high post, if your topic interest me and i have an ideas to share then I will response to your discussion without thinking twice.. What is more important to me is to be able to share my ideas/thoughts about your topic.. It is up to them if they will choose me to be their best response or just ignored me.. I can't force them to do the things that they don't like since all of us have a certain behavior or attitude and we need to respect that.. Well, I know that it is bias or short of racism but we can't do about it to stop them.. I think even the admin can't stop those people who choose to response those same high post as they are.. We just need to respect their decisions and I think they have the right to do the things that they want, right?? Hope you won't get mad with what I've posted above.. This is just my opinion about your discussions.. I guess just don't mind them and just enjoy posting discussions here in mylot..

Let me just comment one thing, and that is, that this is actually not coming from me, and I´m as well not going to tell from who I got it ofcourse I must say as well I think it´s quite normal on this forums-chats to have new bunch of users every time, and I usually don´t mind about it..this time I was just curious about it and started this discussion..Most of what I began with are not mine words, but his-her words..

I think it has more to do with who your friends are. Odds are you have been a here 2+ years, most of your friends have as well so they have high counts. If you are one of those folks who only responds to discussion from you email box, then yea it will look like you are part of a clique.

I think you're exactly right! And the more I've become to think of it, I noticed that this happened every time on another forum or chat where I have been active on! In my opinion, I think this is quite normal..Humanity does the same thing, so why not forums or chats? Anyway..I think I shouldn't had made such a big deal out of it..I'll tell that guy just to calm down and have fun on myLot and relax! :)

Hi slot! If it is as you suggest well I feel there could be another reason for it. I guess that most of the users with big numbrs joined at the same time, were all new together and 'grew up' here together. Then there is the fact that most, not all, but most of the new users come here talking about money and don't move out of those interests to see what's going on elswhere. The users with bigger numbers are very few in the money interests. Personally I go where a discussion appeals to me whether it's a new user or an old user makes NO difference whatsoever. You know that I join in on MANY of the new user discussiona 'over there' Let's see what others have to say!

Dont worry my friend. Some people might have forgot that even they have started like you and me. But all your hard work will have a sweet outcome. So dont worry and be happy to lot. People like us always will be there to suport you. But if the finding that you have posted is true then its very bad and i woulf request the admin guys to check on this and take neccessary action . for them all users who contribute should be equal.

Hi, I regret to dispel this misconception... that is NOT TRUE at all! First off, I don't know who you term as the first or second generation. Some "OLD" myLotters have low post count. And there are some relatively new myLotters who have HIGH post count. The post count is really a measure of how active you have been. And that's the one thing you can deduce when you see someone with high post count - either this person has been posting a little very consistently for a very long time or that this person has at least been extremely active over a period or periods of time. In fact especially for someone with high post count i.e. active, it is more likely that he responds to a newbie's post because he is active and how on earth can he be active and have a high post count if he just replies to a few "old" people? It is those who are having relatively low post count that may in fact be avoid "fellow" myLotters in the same situation as them. There are numerous reason why someone would decide to respond or ignore a particular posting and the post count of the discussion starter is, in my opinion, a moot factor. If someone really skips a discussion because it is started by someone with low post count, this person would quite likely be in the minority of minority. Yet again, everyone is entitled to his idiosyncrasies so we should respect BOTH the rights of those with HIGH and LOW post counts. Here's another food for thought for you. If you see someone with high post count responding to another with high post count, it is likely enough that they have built a friendship over the time spent together. Surely one wouldn't suggest that it is wrong for a friend to respond to a friend's discussions? If that is "racism", then I guess we should all stop making friends. Cheers!

I consider myself new in this site, nevertheless, I find oldies here to respond to my other posts without seeing my status as newier than them and with that I am indeed very grateful. The thing, I believe is the fact that they are responding to post that to them they can relate to and not just something that is a one-line or discussions that comes repeatedly within mylot's circulation. No offense meant on that, I just say based on my experience and observation. In like manner, I didnt choose someone I respond to whether a newbie or an oldie or a friend doesnt matter, as long as I can talk something with the discussion. Thats my two cents though. Great discussion !

Hi Slot. I've been a member of Mylot for more than two years but have only recently been active and from what I've seen so far, I don't think there are categories like the ones you mentioned. I mean there may be some people who respond to only those within their group but personally I respond to those whose discussions interest me. Not because they're popular or from the generations you've mentioned. I would even respond to people with zero and would give a Best Response to someone who was new. It would all depend if they were able to pique my curiosity. I guess all communities have their flaws but I believe MyLot is one of the best "growing" sites that I've seen. So there. Point said.

Hi slot Well, yeah it's sometimes happenning. But so far I'm concerned I don't mind. Because I here to have fun and earn few bucks. If someone is thinking him/herself of superior group, let them think so. I reply to any discussion which I like to. I don't look at the color of star or no. of posts.

yes i think you say somewhat right and sharing is caring but do not know why they are doing such thing and how do we know to which genertion we belong and how to upgrade our generation and how do you know all about this do you are in contact with such type of person and you are doing a great thing keep it up and there are some topics which need double thinking
