Hello everyone, i am still a newbie here and i wanted to know something about this. When i copy paste a word to add on my answer, it says i need to score 500 postings before i will be able to use copy paste since they avoid flooding here. Do you mean that if users reached 500 posts, we can just all copy and paste our answers and then earn money since i believe that more than 3 paragraph is needed so that you will gain more points. Hope you answer this silly but serious question of mine.

Hello strawberrychocodahi! I am not good at it but I will try my best. Right now, you already reached your 500 posts so you can enjoy your copy & paste. Do you know why we have to reach 500 posts first before we can use it? In my opinion, probably because if the person reached that posts, he/she knows what are the rules here. Copy and pasting shouldn't be abused. We should used it if we have to elaborate something and we would like to give an example to some websites like some defintions or etc. but again, there are some limitations..

hello strawberrychocodahi you are almost to the five hundred mark around here at Mylot and when you reach that goal, you need to go read the Mylot guidelines before that you proceed to copy and paste anything. i am only trying to help you out around here at Mylot. you have made it almost to the five hundred mark around here and you made it without having to copy and paste anything, right? so just be careful on what that you do copy and paste here at Mylot. instead find a Mylot discussion that interests you and that you can say lots when that you go to respond to that discussion. that is all that you have to really do to earn more here at Mylot. everybody around here wants the Mylot discussions to be real not copied. i wish you the very best of luck around here at Mylot in meeting all of your goals. take care and have a beautiful afternoon.

You do need to have a minimum of 500 posts in order to just copy and paste a response. I see that you are pretty close so I would not worry about it too much. There are a few reasons why the site would want to make it so you have to reach a minimum in order to paste. Basically if it allowed everyone to copy and paste there would be a huge number of new people who were just on the site in order to make money posting the same response to just about every post. Now there are people that pretty much do that already, but this 500 post rule was probably put into place in order to slow that down.

I am new as well if they do not let you cut and paste then you should have a spell chekc feature. I like to write in word use the spell check then cut and paste inot the post. So this is kind of hard to get used to.

Hi! I also do not understand this logic. The other day as was typing a response. suddenly the power went off and I copied the content and stored it in the words. Later when the power was restored and I looked for the page and tried to paste the content it said 'You must reach 500 (grumpy) or else you are not allowed" wheeee, what what is this? does this mean that after 500 even if all the garbage are put there they would accept? How funny is this. i too want to know about this in elaborate.

there are rules regarding the copy/paste priveledge the 500 minimum post count is to prevent people from spamming they want people to come to understand the real point to this site before letting them copy/paste people do try to just copy/paste their entire responses but most veteran users wonty tolerate that behavior and will report all those violations those people will not get credit for posts that get deleted
