Hi friends, I feel that Mylot admin must provide the functionality to its website to see who is online so that we are able to communicate with our friends. I am from India and I think I have my friends from outside. Sometimes I feel like sitting on my laptop late night and chat with friends, but I cannot see who's online. Please let me know if this is available on this website and I cant see it. OR Do I sound logical here and do you guys agree with me. Kindly respond !!!

there is no use of it , if there is no chat room & if we also get the chat room , it needs more space & will disturb the unstbility of profile sections. we are here to present our views on different topics , not to chat with each other. mylot.com want to increase their presence on net through writing not from chatting. but this idea is good also , if it is limited to only to show the presence of online & offiline , not related to any chatroom in anyway , becoz due to chatroom , some of the mylotters will spend more & more time on that & mylot dont want such activities, i am online now for 15 minutes.

Hi, Thanks for the response. I just want to see if my friends online or not so that I can send them PMs at the same time. Do you think that makes sense?

you can send them message at any time, but you can see the profile stats at the down of profile to guess wheather it is online or offline, it is very easy.

Ya, perhaps this is one of the features of myLot here and actually since it's a site for discussion and posting comments it doesn't have such need to have chatroom or features which let you know who's online at myLot. You may just sand a private message to your friends if you want communicate with them, and also you may invite them to use other chatting facilities to chat, such as Yahoo Messenger, Skype, or MSN messenger. Hope this may help.

I will say that we are all here to post discussions and respond to discussions on various topics of our interest. If you have a need to chat with your friends, I will think that you can either use the private message function to chat with them, or go to other chat facilities which are available. There are a number of such chat facilities available such as MSN messenger, yahoo messenger, etc. If not, you can pm them, and if they are online, I believe they will reply to your message. Hope this helps.

If you look on your friend's profile page, near the bottom, it shows the last time they logged in. It's possible they've logged off since then. If it says they logged on 2 minutes ago, they are probably still there. I HATE the sites that say guess who just showed up. What if I don't want to announce to everyone that I'm here??? Most sites that show when your friends are online have an off button so your friend can hide from you. So, why even claim to show when they're online??? In myLot, just turn your notifications on & you will be able to see their activity. Send them a PM & they will answer when they get it. This site isn't an instant message site!!!
