Mylot Friends..where are they...
October 3, 2008 9:37pm CST
I was going through my Mylot friends list the other day trying to get some of my friends I see a lot up to the front of my list so I went through a lot and deletede a lot of friends that haven't logged on for over 12 months and when i was doing this I thought about some that i used to talk to a lot but they haven't been on for so long, i would look at what country they came from and when i saw some that were from countries that have had disasters I would worry if they maybe were caught up in that, but we have no way of knowing why people are away or move on...wouldn't it be nice if on our profiles we had just maybe one line where people can say what they doing, or just to be able to say they have resigned from Mylot even, or that they have moved on for whatever reason, after all we do become friends in here and we all like to know what happens to out frinds...what do you think....

Well, It really is good to hear from our friends here from time to time. I too have been missing some friends here. Well, I guess, I am partly to blame. I have lots of things to do. I also got busy on one review site. I have just started with it and it gives good payment. Well, just letting you know that I am here...

Hmmm...tat's a good idea, purple-haired blue fairy. Hehehehehe. AMybe kinda like in YM where we can post our status. Good idea. Maybe you should suggest that to admin. It's gonna help us to see what's going with our friends at one glance.

Yes my friend I agree and love your ideas. I'm not always on here and I have health issues but Thanks for keeping me around. I'd be devastated without my myLot friends I really would. On good days it really gives me something to look forward to. Take Care.

Hi there! I have been thinking also about my old mylot friends. I have never seen most of my old friends posting. Every now and then I try to check the number of post they have and they haven't been increasing for a long time now. I do miss them sometimes though we don't really know each other personally. I think it would be such a good feature where in the profile users can inform the others where they are or if they are having a vacation. Maybe post in the profile their activities outside mylot. The mylot staff should also email users that are inactive for sometime and follow up on what they have been doing so that they're friends won't worry about them and whether they still want to join the community or not. By the way, does mylot automatically delete members who have been inactive for so long or the account stays in mylot once a user has signed up?

truly indeed a very good suggestion and i believe this is very feasible. it's great to keep in touch with people whom you have known for awhile and who knows when you go for a vacation in a certain country, you could have meet up and guide you around, right? i think that is just too much to take but not impossible as well.

I was never on your list of friendsd as far as I know lilaclady but could quite well understand if someone did delete my from their list as my appearances here on myLot can be rather erratic. I am a truck driver and so often away from days at a time plus we have a small organic farm and they both keep me busy. Just lately I am able to spend a bit more time on the internet due the work situation, which has not been good. The company I work for offered the drivers the choice of maybe not getting a full week's work or putting people off and I was one of those who opted to keep the job for when there is work. So far I have been lucky and still get at least 4 days a week and several times in the past couple of months, had 6 days work as I have driven from SA to Qld. It would help I am sure if for example members could just make a little post on my profile to say I will not be online for a week or month or whatever. At least that way, friends would know that you do intend to come back within a certain time span. I have not many friends so done nothing about the list but also note that several have done nothing for quite a long time. I just wonder what they are up to and if they are alright etc.

I have been away for a while from here, I havn't found much time to get on... I too often think about my friends on here and wonder if anyone noticed me not on as much... I have notice a few of my friends not about as much and wonder if they too have been too busy or hopefully yeah nothing has happend.... I think that would be a good idea to have a section to write a personal msg sort of like what's on facebook. It would help friends keep up to date, I think...

My heart goes with you. Sometimes it's just sad to know that we have so many friend in our profile yet they seldom log in to mylot or response to discussions (not necessarilly ours), I just wish them all well. Maybe they are just being busy or what?

I don't think most people would post why they aren't here anymore. I think that people don't intentionally quit the site. I think they just get so busy with other things they forget about mylot. So they wouldn't be posting why because they didn't know they were going away. Understand I hope. Every once in awhile I go over my friends list and delete the ones that are't active any more. Or the ones that are active but I haven't seen respond to any of my discussions, I delete those too because I respond to theirs so why not them to mine. And then I go on a quest to find some new friends that are active and see what they do with my request. I do this about once every couple months. It seems to be working for me.

It is a solemn Mylot truth. Friends are never around. Only a few names have been around for years and years. Friends leave, and they don't tell you why. Maybe they get busy with life. Maybe they get bored with mylot. Maybe they get into trouble with some other members over here. Maybe they get a new job and have no more time. Maybe they have a baby and get too busy. Maybe they fall sick and have to take treatment. Or maybe they get caught in a natural disaster. It can be anything. On Mylot friends leave and friends come. Have to accept it. Cheers and happy mylotting

Hi lila, You have made such a good point. It is very sad sometimes to get used to "seeing" people everyday or often enough that when you don't see them you get concerned and wonder what might have happened to them. And it is difficult when there is no way to get in touch with them and find out if they are ok or have just moved on as you have said. I know that I have only been here myself for four months now but I have made some really good friends and when someone that I am used to seeing is gone for a certain amount of time I do get concerned and try to find out what has happened to them. It is sad to think that some of the people that you have known from other countries that have been in disasters might have been caught up in them and I do hope that that isn't the case. I hope that you are able to find out that they are ok and that maybe they will come back again sometime in the future. It is nice that you are concerned, but sad that there is no way to find out.

I haven't been on here long enough to really accumulate a lot of friends, but I can see how real friendships could develop on here. If one of my friends were MIA, then I would worry about them, especially if they were in an area where I knew there had been disasters. Unfortunately, when bad things happen there usually isn't any advance notice, so they might not be able to update their profile, even if myLot allowed it.

I asked that myself when i got back here three months ago. i started gathering some friends of mine, some people i have joined with and then.it was okay until another friend from my-list went berserk for something i didn't do. he threw me of his list. the next thing i knew his account got deleted by admin. i am happy with my new friends now and some oldies that remained here.

hi, lilaclady... i'm include one of them, my friends. I'd quit from here for about 6 months, I don't know exactly. It's because I can't concentrate join mylot while working. I'm sorry didn't update my status, but here I come back. :)
