Re-Inventing Yourself...

Yesterday I decided to go through my friends on MyLot and see how many accounts were deleted in the big account deletion incident a few weeks back. By the time I was done, three pages had been deleted. I don’t know if these ppl just made new accounts or if they left MyLot all together. Luckily I wasn’t one that was deleted, I still have my original twoey68 account. Some of the accounts deleted had been around for quite a while too. Did your account get deleted? Any idea who re-invented themselves and who just left? If your account were deleted, would you just make a new one or toss in the towel? Have you checked your friends lately?

Oh no, MyLot didn't delete them. It seems to have something to do with hackers. I don't know the whole situation but I've seen that a lot of accounts were deleted. [b]**AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~[/b]

Okay, I will change my answer then. If MyLot did not delete me, I would be back with a vengeance, trying to regain my lost ground.

WHAT a crock. It's ridiculous that they can get away w/that b/s.

I haven't been so active lately, so I don't know if some of my friends were deleted. I still have my original account, but if I get deleted, I won't create a new account. It would be pointless, considering my low activity of the past months.

I guess you have your own reasons for not being active here but with your (4935) standing I would assume that you have received some good money here at myLot. May be you are getting bored or have other things occupying your time but I would think the money might be an incentive to stick around? May be I am wrong? Hope you decide to stay.

It's not that I'm getting bored, that comes and goes, here, on myLot. I've just been very busy with my Master degree project and my current work. I did earn some good money here and that's the reason for me not quitting the site for good. I figured if the myLot has been reliable by honestly paying its members, I can also be loyal to the site for as much as possible.

Hi there! I didn't know that accounts have been deleted by mylot. Why did they delete them? Are they those inactive or made a violation? I haven't checked on my friends' account lately. But there are a lot that hasn't been logging in for months now. I'm glad that my account wasn't deleted but if it was, I will register again for sure. I just love mylot. Ciao!

WHAT?! I knew nothing about accounts being deleted! Why were they deleted? I rarely go through my friends pages, although I know they need some maintenance. How can I tell if they've been deleted?

well so far I havent gotten deleted again *knocks on wood* I know a few that reinvented themselves I wish that I could say that I would throw in the towel but no doubt I will probably reinvent myself again if I get deleted

That's odd. I am not on here enough to really pay attention that closely. I notice that most of the discussions I get are many of the people I've had here for quite a while. I have not seen if any had changed things. Maybe I should go looking?

This is my original account. I would probably make another account if mine were deleted but only once, if it happened a second time I'd not bother. I must check my friends list and see if any have been deleted, I rarely check that and there are people on there I befriended when I first became a member, many of who have disappeared.

I'm glad that I still got my original account. I wasnt aware that people had been deleted thet explains why when I try to leave comments on my friends profile page the pages are already gone. That is so sad, I hope they will add me back if they had madenew accounts.:)

I have heard about all the deletions a few weeks ago, but didn't really notice any. I did notice that a member here had gotten banned not too long ago, or either that was being harassed so they changed their name. They are a very popular member, and I believe used to live in an RV... so you should know who I am talking about, as I believe you may have responded to his discussions. In any case, to answer your questions... My account is safe, but if it were to be deleted whether or not I opened a new one would depend on if I or my fiance had a job, and what my fiance and I had decided about doing!

No I have never been deleted. Same old me for 3 years. If I got unfairly deleted and had done nothing to deserve it I would never come back.

I really don't know what happened, but clearly my account wasn't deleted. I'm thankful for that. If something like that were to happen, though, I doubt I would come back. I wouldn't really feel secure anymore.

I'm still here. I didn't know about the "deletion incident". I'm not exactly sure what I would do. I mean I'm not really on mylot a whole lot. I respond to my friends discussions when they start something that I can comment on but, most generally I don't really look for discussions to respond to. I think I have mylot burn out LOL

I am happy to say that I still have my original Mylot account here also. I have seen alot of profiles that have been deleted here though. Some of them did come back with a new account but some left for good. I would try to rejoin if Mylot would let me if they ever deleted my account.

There was a "big account deletion incident a few weeks back"? Where was I? Obviously not deleted. If I were deleted and couldn't get my original account back, I don't know if I'd make a new one...

I do not think I have been affectied by this. but I think the number of post and my earnings have been affected by it. I have not been active here to offten so I have not kept up with the issues here. I have very behind here.

For starters, if my account was deleted I'd be terribly disappointed. I enjoy myLot and spend a little time each day to alot of time each day responding to discussions. I'd be lost without it. I would probably open another account using a different name and hope there wouldn't be any problems. Have been a member for 3 years and haven't changed anything on my list of friends. I accept everyone and they can remain on the list.

I have not had my account deleted though I am not super active. I come in and make a post or two, mostly just read discussions and then go. As for friends on my list, I used to accept anyone but now I cut it way down to very very few people. I found that there are a lot of people here that I don't share the same interests and to weed them out of my friends discussions to get to discussions I want to read was becoming impossible. So I try to keep the list being people I think share similar interests now. I only have a little over 2 pages of friends now where at one point I had 20 pages or more. But many were inactive, deleted, spammers for online money making sites, mega discussion makers but don't share back at all, or people I didn't know what their topics were about. So once I knocked out all them I was left with a small group but it is better for me.

I didn't even know this occurred. Luckily my account wasn't one that was deleted. I think if it were I would just leave and find another way to make some cash. I don't really come here much anymore anyway with all that I have going on and it takes me at least four or five months just to reach payout. I wish it were easier to make payout or I wish the minimum payout could be lowered to $5 instead of $10. Every little bit helps and I feel people wouldn't feel so discouraged and they would continue to come back if the payout were easier to reach. Most people don't want to put so much effort into making a few dollars.

3 pages?? didn't even know that. but if mine was deleted I would probably stay away from mylot. or I will create new a/c but next year or something. I like it here but since I'm not online much I probably won't miss it much if they delete me.

That reminds me I need to do that also.. I haven't done that in months so it is about time to cut back a little last time I had 14 pages and cut it back to like 4 pages..so it is time for another trim..I had some friends get their accounts deleted or should I say they canceled them because of being harassed. So I need to do a clean up and change things.Thanks for the reminder.
