...until I can cut and paste! I am oddly excited about this, but I want to post an article I wrote and I really don't feel like retyping it So who is anxious for the day that they can cut and paste? And for those of you over 500 posts, were you super excited when you reached this mylot landmark?

Well, I'm in the same boat as you are. I'm almost to 500 posts and I'm excited too. I know how you feel I have lots of poetry, etc that I would love to put here on MyLot but I don't want to have to retype it. I guess I'm just lazy like that. Congratulations on your accomplishment!

Congrats to you too, you have excactly 500 posts now I really wan't to paste things, writing a link for a youtube video, for example, can be really frustrating sometimes... It would also be handy when some comment has many comments and you're answering the last one. I sometimes forget some parts of the comment and need to go back to check it. Of course I copy the text I've written so far and when I've read the comment, I start writing my post again and realize I can't paste Last time I had that situation was a few minutes ago

I don't even think I knew that we could copy and paste when we reached 500 posts. LOL. I don't really copy and paste many things anyway except when I do post a link to a news article or something. Just a few more posts for you and you can copy all you want! Congrats!!

Yes, that is the most annoying thing about not being able to cut & paste - typing out all those news articles that have a bunch of random numbers and letters in the title.

Congratulations on hitting 500. I still have a ways to go before I can copy and paste but that will mainly come in handy when I want to add a link to a post so I di not have to type in the complete address by hand.

Yes, I can't wait until I reach that landmark, although I have a long way to go. I also can't wait until I reach the minimum number of posts required for me to have use of emoticons. I get tired of typing the boring :). Anyway, congrats to you reaching 500 posts! How long did it take you?

I can so remember my first day on my lot trying to copy and paste a link to a web site and being told no I could not do that. I thought it was something I did wrong. LOL. I looked every where to find out what I could have done to make it so that I was not able to copy and paste. I am still a long way away from being able to copy and paste but someday I will get there I am sure. At least I hope I will get there any way.

I used to get annoyed when I wasn't able to cut and paste but then I got used to it and didn't even notice when I gained that superpower lol I was like "Oh,cool,I can do that now!" and then "OK,what do I need it for?.." I must admit it comes in handy when you want to share an interesting article or some creation of yours so cheers!

no. i don't like cut and paste too. i always write. i don't want to copy the articles to the mylot. that will reduce my earning in here. and don't help for me. i must type the world. so it is very tired for me.

I can't STAND that I can't copy/paste. That's a big part of how I write. I can't select and drag paragraphs to make them more readable, I can't copy the text (well I can copy but...) then hit the back buttom to read the question again and then re-reply by hitting the paste key. I've lost many many posts because I keep forgetting that this is not a standard edit box. It keeps me from spending a lot of time here. I think my post count is up to 19... I think that MyLot has missed the boat with this arcane spambot blocking mechanism. I'd rather just type a wordcode to prove I'm not a spambot.

Well, I have been over 500 posts for a long time now, so it has been no big deal, but you are now 5 over, so you can do this if you so please now. Most of the time, I never post a lot of my original type of writings here if they are very long as in an article. I will usually save them to post other places first, and maybe talk about a small amount of that type of subject in here if need be as well. Just remember to not abuse your priveledge with C&P and have Fun as well.
