Hi all, I am happy that i manage to reach the 500th post around 4 weeks. Really thanks to all my MyLot Guru as with their guide, i am also reach my first minimum payout. I do have a question on copy and paste function. When do you usually use the functions? Because if we posting the same info in other discussion, it is violate the rules. For those just about to reach 500th or target to break through 500th post soon, lets get the momentum going and achieve together!!! Hope to hear from your advice and guidelines soon.

I think copy and paste is most useful when you want to include a link to a news item or any non-referral link that's relevant to your post. Copy and paste can be used to quote someone's exact words. It is also useful for editing your own post, as you can move sentences or paragraphs around after previewing and before posting. Best of all it prevents me losing a post if my internet connection cuts out. There is nothing more frustrating than writing a long response then getting a 'cannot display page' message. If I have copied it I can reconnect and paste it in again, so I copy everything before I post.

This is a really clever idea I will definately keep this in mind when I eventually reach the big 5 0 0!

Hi Paid2write, i got your point, appreciate your sharing. Also, will take note on your experience on "cannot display page", i should practice it in word or notepad first, then can copy paste then. Again, thanks for sharing and happy mylotting.

ha ha ha ha ha... that is good news indeed. You are so much more active than me when I first joined mylot! First payout within a month! And reaching the 500 post mark too! Well, the next step will probably be in the $100 dollar club. Well, how you want to use the cut and paste is entirely up to you. I usually use it for copying and pasting my own posting just before and after I load a picture for the discussion. Cos mylot tend to remove all the indentation and paragraphing when you load a picture. So to maintain the structure of my post, I will copy it before I load the picture. And paste it back after the picture is loaded. I am sure you will find more creative ways to use the new functions you just aquired.

Well, just to inform you, there is a club here in mylot call the hundred dollar club. You can check it out here -- http://www.mylot.com/w/lists/5_538570/default.aspx I started a topic there -- http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/1652488.aspx Do give it a visit when you reach the 100 dollar payout. THe other thing I find particularly useful with the cut and paste? Posting URLs here! No need to type like crazy and hoping that you post accurately for URLs which you want to share with people!

I have found it comes in handy when I am writing a discussion and need to move sentences around or if I need to quote something from an article on another site that relates to or is subject of the discussion

Hi there! First of, congratulations on reaching your 500th posts! You are doing good I think cause 1 month is a short time for reaching it. I reached my 500th post for about 2 months. Anyways, with regards to your question, the copy and paste is one of the best feature of mylot for me. I use it for safety reasons. There are times that internet connection is disrupted and cut off, so before I submit my post I copy my discussion first so that if ever while submitting my post and the connection is cut off, I can easily reload the page again and just paste my discussion. In that way it saves me the time to rewrite everything again. There are users who make drafts first say in a note pad or MS Word and so they copy and paste their work in mylot. Ciao!

congratulations for achieving the 500th post... now that you had reached the important milestone, you can copy and paste... but of course not plagirising other people's work... i think what you can copy is part of the article from the news that you think that is interesting and you want to discuss it here... but of course you still have to cite the source and the authour of the article for copyright purposes... have fun with the copy and paste function here... just make sure not to abuse it... take care and have a nice day...

Congratulations! I still have a long ways to go! For me, I would have liked to be able to copy/paste my poetry from my email into a post here. Because it takes 5 seconds to copy/paste versus taking 20+ minutes to friggin' retype the whole thing! GRR! *LOL* But, I wanted everybody to view my poetry right away, so I just went ahead and blistered my fingers retyping instead of waiting for 500 points! *LOL* But, that is just me! :) Congratulations again! :)

I just hit the 500 mark myself, and I am sooo glad I can use the copy and paste function!! I like to write all my stuff on Microsoft Word first, to make sure there are not spelling mistakes, and also because if something goes wrong, my computer will automatically save it before shutting all the way down. I would also use it when try to share a reference link. Some of those links are long!!

Copy and paste is best for providing links. You have no idea how happy I was when I didn't have to type out the long website addresses when I wanted to use a reference in my post. I will also use cut and paste when I am posting recipes from time to time.
