I was checking my own profile because it's been quite some time since i checked it. Some friends left a comment so i want to comment back to thank them but myLot gave me an alert message telling me that i should be friends with this person to be able to leave a comment. Surprisingly, the person is me. lol!

I've done that too... to give comment on my own profile, but unfortunately I can't and when I tried to befriend with myself it say's it's my own profile, which means I can't do that.

Hi modstar. If you want to comment back to your friends, you have to go to their profile page and leave your comments there.

Ah huh, that's the only way. So i guess the "Add comment" on our profile shouldn't be there in the first place if we won't be able to use it right?

Yup, you're absolutely right. I made the same mistake the first time I tried to comment back.

Yeah modstar, you owe me a response to my comment. LOL. Well, yeah, I have tried that too but it did say, "you have to be friends with this person....chu chu....". I thought it meant person as in the one who commented. So I had to visit the user's profile to see if we are friends. We were! So I had to logout and login again with the hope of probably refreshing the page but still it didn't. I even wanted to PM the person as to why I can't comment back to him. Good thing my guardian angel whispered to me that myLot meant ME as the person spo it saved me the embarrassment. Aiza: add as a friend Aiza: pending friend request Aiza: approve Aiza and Aiza are already friends.

It's always a good thing to be friends with yourself. I mean if you aren't friends with you....who else can be? Seriously, I think when some one leaves a comment on your profile page, if you want to thank them, you are supposed to leave that message on their page. Otherwise they would probably never see it. I didn't know we couldn't leave a comment on our own page though...how else are we supposed to give ourselves a needed pat on the back? Kisses for Moochie

Ok, you see here is the problem and i'm glad i brought this topic up: You left a comment on Moochie's photo right? You were asking what he is looking at. I was about to comment back on your comment but i couldn't because me and myself aren't friends yet. See? So do i have to look for you just to tell you that Moochie is counting cars on the road? Quite inconvenient huh?

Counting cars...or just waiting for a (VW) rabbit to drive by? Hahaha As far as replying to messages left on pictures...you can always go to any of your friends' profiles and leave a message...right? Not quite as convenient as leaving it where you saw the original message, but still gets the job done. I'm sure you have better things to do (like hunting for donuts?) than to spend time looking for me. When you get donuts...do you share with Moochie? Is he happy to have you home?

Moochie is quite picky with donuts. Sometimes he would just press his nose on the donut. So obviously, i can't eat it and he won't so it'll go straight on the trash bin or alley cats. Debra?

Hey modstar! That makes no sense whatsoever! You have to be friends with the person that you want to leave the comment to! How can you be friends with yourself? There was some kind of communication error obviously! You don't want to leave a comment to yourself! You must have done something wrong! You have to go to the person's profile that you want to leave a comment to! If you are already their friend there shouldn't be a problem. Try it again and if it doesn't work then you need to contact mylot admin and explain the problem!

Oh yeah, I know that! So what you have to do is go to their profile and leave the comment that you want on their profile instead! That's what I do when someone leaves me a comment and I want to say something back to them!
@modstar (9610)

Yeah, i guess that's the only way for now.

Iv never thought of posting a comment on my own profile lol, so I really dont know what you would need to do to post on your own profile, I only know how to post on my friends profile but maybe the others know how to do that lol.
@modstar (9610)

Well some friends ask questions as their comments so that's the reason why we need to add comment on our own profile because that's where our friends posted the question. So now you know.

Hello modstar, Oh, this is funny! Are sure you have to add yourself to your friend list to leave a comment? Maybe there 's a mistake somewhere. I seldom update my profile. I remember the last time, I left it half way while updating it. So, it is a bit upside down right now. Few days ago, I managed to 'clean up' a few places but still, I don't really like looking at my own profile!

There's no mistake on my part my friend. I guess it's a glitch or just a minor bug not worthy of correction. Well my profile's on default. lol! So i'm pretty sure yours is even better.

I think it is the same as not being able to comment on your own discussions. You can leave a comment on the profile of the friend who left one on yours but you cannot reply to it as that is like commenting on your own profile. OOh I feel dizzy now after that comment.

Sometimes I'm my own best friend..... my own worst enemy too, for that matter. But I haven't tried to leave myself a comment yet. Maybe next time I want to pat myself on the back for something I will try.

I dont think its actually possible to befriend youself...and i've never figured out how to answer posts to my profile.
