I am just curious, do you delete your friends because they are inactive? I don't . the reason is whether they are active or not does not effect my ability to go on mylot so I want to leave it as it is. What about you?

Hello there! I agree with you. I do not delete my friends who are inactive. I just let it as is. I think they have some good reasons for being inactive and I do not mind it at all.

Whether they are active or not make no different to me. I read some post that you should view a person's profile before accept their friendship. I don't. I welcome anybody who want to be my freind

Yes, we are the same. Everybody is welcome to be my friend. I also do not reject any friend requests.

I am not very active here all the time, so I don't typically worry about that. Even if I was active more frequently, I think I would still leave them as they are. I don't have any special formula for picking and keeping "friends" on any of these sites and therefore I really don't concern myself with their activity level. (Now, if someone comes along and we end up corresponding for an extended period of time, and then all of a sudden they leave, I may wonder where they went, but I don't always go out of my way to find out if we only know each other on a social networking site such as this.) So, if they are gone, maybe one day they will come back. If they don't come back then so be it. I really don't pay any attention to my "friends'" activity levels to be honest.

You are more active than I am. We came here at the same time : 2 year ago and you have 1186 posts , I only have 500+. I like you page, the color of your page is very attractive. I feel the same, friends are friends, I does not bother me whether they are here or not.

If they don't show up for several months then I delete them. I find them pretty useless to me. They don't post on Mylot or respond to my discussions then I can't really make any money here. I prefer people that will actually come here and post and make this place better.

The number of post you have is very hight so you must be very active thus have the time to monitor your friends. as for me, even if I want to delete my inactive friends, I don't even have the time to do that. Besides, mylot does not limit the number of friends I can have so I don't care.

I don't delete them as well. I add friends because I consider them as friends online and in the mylot community. Whether or not they're active does not matter to me because I accepted them as online friends and not as income-generating tools. I don't even bother monitoring whether they're active or not. Have a good one.

I leave my friends as they are. I don't delete them. Even if they are inactive they may come back and if they don't then they just don't.

The same here. I don't look to see if they are active or not. I understand people get tired of mylot some times but they are always come back. I am on and off too. It took me almost a year to make the first $10.00. But i was away from mylot for 3 months. I work at home and treat this place as my coffee break. I am happy that I make a few pennies here. I appreciate people my post, but, first the topic has to appeal to them.

Nope, why would I delete the friends when they are inactive? I actually do not check if my friends are active or not in myLot, I would always like to go and check the discussions that my friends started. If the discussions are interested, then I'd like to respond to them. Whether or not they are active, it doesn't really matter to me.

Hello maria_k! I don't really delete anyone on my friends list. Why delete them anyway? It still won't affect me and my earnings here. Like you, maybe they are just quite busy this past few months and that they will be back soon. I do believe that everybody must have a chance.

No I dont deleate anyone and I take all friend request not that I have any friends since im pretty shy and dont like starting the conversation I wouldnt know what to say lol. But I dont deleate anyone since I know that no one actually quits this forum and most people come back.

i do not like to delete them they may be active after some days so it is better not to delete but some time what happen if we have so many friends then it is difficult to get our actual friends who are really active so it depends upon person to person and number of friehds they have intheir friend list

I do after they have been inactive for 3 months or more, no point in having all these inactive friends sitting around, its easier to find who you are looking for if you dont have pages and pages of friends.
