hi all... i was just wondering is it possible to delete the discussion that you started on mylot? is like sometimes you start a discussion already, then you realise the discussion violated the rules and regulation or that you realise there was already a similar one..is it possible to delete the discussion that you started? or is it forever there once you start it?

You cannot delete a discussion yourself. You have two options. - ask a friend to report it for you and the myLot staff will delete it or - contact myLot through the link at the bottom of the page. I choose the first option. However BEFORE you post a discussion it is wise to consider whether it is violating or not. To check if it is a repeated topic use the searchbar above here on the right.

By going to the discussion in question and hitting the (!) icon under the discussion itself.

Hehe...I was going to tell the same thing. Just before too, I told this thing on the other post in a joking way... Just abuse the thread, and get it deleted by the mylot hehe. Seems a funny idea, isn't it?...

No its Not Possible for you to Delete/Edit any Discussion which you have already published/started, and the reason you stated as If after posting something If you feel that by Mistake you have made a mistake and it the violation of myLot terms then the very active member of mylot will consider your discussion as Violation and Report to the Staffs of myLot then your Discussion will get Deleted and they will reduce your earning too... So its better Check the Rules of myLot 1st and Recheck your data before posting something..... Keep Smiling and Happy myLotting

Oh well you cant........even I was trying if we could delete some of our discussions.......not because I violated some TOS or rules, because of the server problem two same discussions had been posted......so even I was trying if I could delete it.....but the simple answer I got was NO, you just cant delete them......if you check the contact session it says that if you need to fix any post or trying to delete, you cant.......you will have to leave a comment to fix something or at the most wait till your discussion gets deleted by the mods/admins....... Hope this helps......have a nice day !!!!

I do not think that its possible. Unless you post some link on it and it will get deleted when its reported or found. Maybe the administrator of this website can do it. I am not sure and would like to know whether is it possible too. Cheers.

Ask a friend to report it for you. Send them a PM pointing out which discussion you need removing becaise it is a violation.

You may contact myLot for that discussion of yours to be delete. I have done that a few times already and they get really into it whenever you give them the details (^_^ ) So far, no feature has been available for members to delete their own discussions as well as posts that they have made either by mistake in double posting or that you notices some errors and you want to edit them..

I don't think there is an option of deleting the discussions we started or responses we had made. I wish sometimes there was a option to delete the discussions I started or response I make. I think it would be fun if there is an option to delete our own discussions or response.

Actually I want to do the same but not because it is violating the terms (or at least I think so) but because nobody answered it! I thought I was going to receive an answer but it seems nobody knows what I am talking about. The discussion in question is here http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/2003875.aspx

How about editing responses? Sometimes I commit typographical errors that looks like grammatical errors on my response. I really wish there is an edit function here.

Don't worry, if you feel that a discussion is voilating rules and regulations, it will be deleted automatically and if it stays there, it means that it is not violating any rules. Cheers and happy mylottin.

Hey flowerday! Once you have posted a discussion you can't delete it yourself. If for any reason it does violate some mylot rule or regulationyou can be sure that mylot admin will make sure that it does get deleted! Don't worry they are very good at deleting discussions when I they feel they have a good reason to!

It is forever their once you start it unless the administration deletes it, and if you have broken the rules it will be deleted, so you do not have to worry about that. They will take care of it.

No you can not modify or delete a discussion or reply after you have submitted it. It is always better that you read the guideline first so that you don't do something that violates the rules. What you can do is request your friends to report it to mylot. Otherwise I think it will automatically deleted by the mylot stuff. Try to be careful when you are starting or replying to a discussion and you will not face this kind of problem. This is the simplest solution.

One thing i know for sure is that we cant delete it by ourselves, the administrators keep looking for violation and they remove it.

If you mean deleting your won post, the answer is you can't. This is the wonders of myLot. Since it was release to the public any member can't delete their own post. Only myLot can delete your post. If you think you make a mistakes in posting or violating the TOS, you must report your post to myLot my contacting them through the use of CONTACT feature at the bottom of the site.
