Have you unconciously responded to the same discussion twice?

i can't remember exactly when... I guess I was new to myLot that time. Coz that time, I barely have the time to log on... it takes a day or two again for me to log back on. But I responded to a discussion...and okay, I hit the "post reply" button... I saw my response posted... I went on and read previous pages... and oh my God! I responded to the same discussion a week before,and I completely forgot about it! I guess I had so much in my mind that I really had no clue I responded to that very same discussion. ...and my response,was almost similarin thoughts, not the same words though...... has that happened to you?

I think a lot of us are guilty of doing this, it's so easily done. Normally I rely just on my notifications and once I have responded I then delete the notification so I don't reply twice, but sometimes I am eager to respond to newbies or interesting discussions even if they are not from my friends, but in the past I have realized that on page one or two I have already responded and it's like d'oh!!! One good way is to rate the discussion so if you go back and see it rated you know you have responded previously!

No problem at all, I suspect I was asking the same question when I first started out, we all have to start somewhere and we have all been there before ;0) Just glad to have helped out!

I think if i can remember, i only did that once and that was to my own discussion, i haven't been here that long though. But i did that consciously, maybe one day i might do it unconsiously, because sometimes i'm forgetful.

lolz... in mylot..im not sure if it is something that would get you in trouble..i guess you just dont earn anything from posting twice..
• Philippines

yes, i can't remember how many times i have done something like that. but when ever the browser had a hard time loading the site, and i get pissed and kept refreshing it, that's the time that something was indeed wrong and it has been considered too late and then as of this time i just use copy paste.

No it has not happened to me, yet anyway. If I read a post I usually read or at least skim over responses also. I do sometimes post a response and when I finally get the response up, I see someone that posted right before I had and they said pretty much the same thing I just said. It's like we were both thinking and typing the same thoughts only they posted their response before I was done. Lol I guess things like that happen alot though, as we are all sharing our opinions and ideas, and are bound to have some of the same thoughs. Have a great day :)

if you look beside some discussions, there are "related topics" sometimes, and that's how I found it the second time - only after I thought about it did I look and find my first response....

I don't know if it happen that I responded twice in any discussion. What I made was to response and response every discussion that emailed to me by mylot. I don't remember any discussion that I responded...have a great day!
• Philippines
27 Aug 09
oh if you respond from your email, i guess you don't get to answer the same discussion twice,. i think it is a better idea. what i do is go to myLot main page and look for discussions there.. and since i am very careles..there, i get to respond to the same discussions twice in a week LOLZ!

I have not responded to the same discussion twice because I recall someone doing it to one of mine almost a year ago! The person became aware of the mistake and apologised. I thought it was funny at the time and how easy it was to do. Ever since then I have made it a habit to check before responding!
• Philippines
27 Aug 09
yeah...we would never be aware of it truly unless someone pints it out to us... i have to learn being careful from now on... by the way. i am jealous of your blue star! LOLZ

Hehehe... That has never happened to me yet, luckily. You said you responded twice on one discussion. Was the second respond similar to your first response?
• Philippines
26 Aug 09
kind of... i didn't use the same words though.. i'm glad my ideas were the same.. if not, i would have looked like a fool...some sort of split personality lolz!
@iskayz (5422)
• Philippines
26 Aug 09
Yeah, that's why I asked you hehe. If on your first response you agreed and then on the second one you disagreed that would really be a funny mistake. Good thing your ideas were the same! It also proves that you don't respond just to respond and earn. It means you really think it through first before making a response.
• Philippines
26 Aug 09
o yeah... i do... and thanks for that..i didn't at least look that mich stupid lolz...... just slightly for answering the same discussion twice.. i have to scan the pages for my avater this time now.

nope i haven't experience that. i always make sure that i don't respond twice in the same discussion since some people here said that if we do that often, we will be banned here. maybe you would check your works twice so that that won't happen again.
• Philippines
26 Aug 09
yeah... i'm too lazy and careless to do that. but I thought i have done it a couple of times and it started to concern me

you will learn a lot from the FAQ panel on the homepage of mylot. i usually go over it everyday so that i will be reminded of the do's and dont's of the site. the next time that i planned on something, i will make sure that i always conform to the conditions given by the admin. happy mylotting and have a nice day.hey cut off is near. i hope you can make it to pay out.

I laughed hardly because it seems my brain became nerdish and can't remember that I already contributed to this certain discussion. Much worst they response I gave is not similar hahahahahahahha.

it's really a shame on our part when we respond to a single discussion, more than once. but we are just human so we commit mistakes. i know it also did happen to me but i can't remember well.
• Philippines
25 Aug 09
yeah.. i guess at one point or another,especially those who had been in myLot for soooooooooooo long, must have had experienced that............

funny is, right about an hour ago or less, my friend responded to my topic, twice. it's because she opened more than one tab. unknowingly, she opened two tabs, each for my two discussions. and when she submit the post, she got shocked seeing her first respond above.
• Philippines
25 Aug 09
yeah i did that too...i had two of my responses in a row.......silly me

I think I might have done this too, but I'm not sure. Sometimes when I'm responding to topics I would feel like "deja vu." But maybe that's just because I've seen a topic that's similar but not exactly the same. If we accidentally post on the same discussion twice one of the two would be deleted, right?
@angelajoy (1839)
• Philippines

I mean if we accidentally post on the same discussion and the answers we post are the same or almost the same one would be deleted.
• Philippines

hi angela..i dont think they will be deleted..we just dont earn from the duplicate post anymore... at least that's what i know...not very suire though...

Hi patofgold23 That accident nearly happen to me! Once I landed in one discussion and wanna post response, but lucky me, I decided to look other responses too, and I see my own post there! I feel quiet shock and thanks God, I haven't type response yet I'm afraid other users or the starter will think I wanna extra earning by typing double responses, and report me So now I try to remember and check all the responses first if I feel unsure before decide to type anything!
• Philippines
29 Aug 09
hey there Chrysan... i bet most of us in myLot...even those who had been here for so looong must have made that mistake at one point or another. it cna't be avoided I guess.. for me it's because of my carelessness..... but we don't really earn extra if we respond to same discussion for the second time unless if it ir barging right?
• Indonesia
30 Aug 09
Really? I don't know before, I think we get earning too when we make response again in the same discussion.. Thanks for let me know that. Of course we get the payments for barging in. Oh, btw, I've just bookmarked your blog. Is it really you, the woman in the blog? If yes, you look so beautiful, patofgold

Yes, actually many times.hehe. Sometimes I cannot remember exactly if I already posted my response to that discussion. If I love the discussion even if it is already two years I would really post my response not knowing I already posted one long ago..lol!it's really funny actually.
• Philippines
16 Sep 09
yeah that usually happens when an old dicsussion is brought up again!!! and maybe some weeks had passed... i completely forgot about it... then when i do repond to it again wooooops!!! I see my avatar!

Hello patofgold. I have had this kind of experience for many times. Just a couple of days ago, I was trying to respond to some old discussions left in my email notification. When it was posted, I discovered that my previous response made a few months ago was just above my new one. Interesting, huh? So it is a good idea for me to always delete those old ones so that I won't repeat the same thing. lol
• Philippines
15 Sep 09
oh yeah.. i started doing that just lately... my email is always flooded with stuff i don't need anymore......... i started deleting...and oh boy it felt great! my spam and inbox looked really neat! i should have doen it long ago!

I think I may have done so once, but I didn't really check because the discussion had so many pages, and I could no longer be bothered to go through all of them. I just had the feeling though that I've replied to the discussion before. I do know that I have almost done so quite a few times, but the discussions had few pages, so I was able to check, and instead of replying, I would just comment on my previous reply to add more insight. I have also consciously replied again to one friend's discussion because I had a new answer and the previous situation I was in no longer applied, so I felt like I had to answer again.
• Philippines
5 Sep 09
oh yeah... i was concerned coz i heard from someone that you're not supposed to answer a discussion more than once unless if you do barging in... and if you do..you won't earn from it anymore... but i dunno if it's gonna get me into trouble with mylot.

it has not happened yet. but it might because when i have overtime work in the office i sometimes go back mylotting same as you, takes two days sometimes three before i go back mylotting. and with everything coming so fast nowadays, there is a possibility it would happen to me too. nothing to worry. its just a process industrious people experience. happy mylotting! ann

Hi ann!!! yea..you're right... but a product of carelessness and laziness too.lolz! if i do it very often i might be introuble with myLot...hope not!

never, never have I responded the same topic even once. have you? haha, that's ok. coz each time, you may feel you need to add something there. and that proves that the topic really draws your attention.
• Philippines

uhm...it's more on my being careless forgetful and lazy magic...i don't really take the time to scan the board and check for my avatar... but i have to be more careful now.. i felt embarassed the time i realized that

You know, I have no idea. But I certainly might have. Some discussions are similar, so I am not sure if I have already responded. But at least your responses were similar... would have been really embarrassing if they were different each time you responded huh!!?? LOLOL
• Philippines
27 Aug 09
right! that's what exactly came to my mind when i realized i answered the same discussion twice. at least my thoughts are the same.. otherwise, it would have been sooo embarassing...
