Why my reputation drop in mylot?

Indonesia
August 28, 2009 4:06am CST
I did not do the discussion in mylot for about 2 days. I was not online because my child sick fever in 2 days. Today I login to mylot and discussion with mylotter as usual. I was shocked when I saw my star become grey (the first is yellow). So, I see my reputation drop become 73/100. I try to find things why my repiutation drop. I get information, that negative rate can make reputation drop. My question : 1. Are there other cause make reputation drop? 2. How do I know if someone gave me negative rate?

That's unfortunate that your reputation has dropped slightly. There can be a number of reasons why this has taken place. I'm thinking that maybe there was another My Lotter that wasn't too keen on one of your previous discussions and so they gave you a negative rating. This has certainly happened to me in the past. Unfortunately there's no way of finding out when someone gives you a negative rating. All I can suggest is that you always remain true to yourself and continue to post always following your heart. Don't worry about other people. Your ratings will improve again. Andrew

OOOOh AndrewFreyne, you go boy, I love your comment, you speak like a man after my own heart. As long as we post comments from our heart and not worry about what others are writing we will continue to do just fine here at mylot and just maybe even exceed the norm. Take care and have a wonderful weekend, you speak volume.

Dear masteronline, It happened to me again today...I just wonder what had I done. A week ago I was at star rating 10 with 100/100, 5 days ago, I was shocked to see 98/100. So, I still carry on as it climbed back to 99/100...out of sudden this evening it dropped to 98/100. I am an active myLotter. I logged in everyday to comments and response. Moreover, will the Best Response helps? I earned 6 BR today, yet my rating drop to 98/100...why can't the BR offset the negative rating ...just wonder! I always give (+) rating to all my responder and whenever I read the discussion I will definitely rate it positively.. All the best , hope our star will improve Hmmm , I hope I can climbed back to 100/100...it is very encouraging if your rating is good...it makes my day.

Hello Iriende88, I wonder what good will it do to give a plus rating to every single responder, is that simply because they came to your profile and left a response? Or is it because you thought they had good content in their comment. I find it just a little bit hard to believe that everybody up here would have good content in their comment so I just wonder why we'd give a plus to everyone. If we give a plus to everyone then what would be the point of the neg. and the excite marks? Oh never mind about the excite marks, I learned what that one is for. But giving pluses to everyone I don't quite understand, please help me out on this one if you can. Cheers!

that is so sad my friend. i dont give negative ratings towards my friends and fellow mylotters. but as what i have known when someone rated you negatively then your rating would surely drop. but i know it will rise again. maybe someone is just in their bad saide again and giving negative ratings. just dont worry to much friend and i hope your child is doing fine now. i know you are great here just do it that way. and i know it would be going good again. jhelai

thank you jhelaichie, I don't understand we someone give negative rate to other. I think never make bad response, I always stay in neutral response. But that is OK. My reputation come up again. But I am very curious about that case.

Yeah, I dont think someone should gave negative feedback, even though they aint satisfy with the comment or responses. It is part of throwing opinion to receive both positive and negative responses, post and cons sort of speak. So i guess, not until someone really cross the line by being rude and saying bad words, that once deserve neg ratings.

It is clearly against guidelines to give negative ratings to someone you disagree with and as said I also never rate anyone negative, I either ignore the comment or if it is abusive report it. Sadly not everyone follows these guidelines and some people do rate you with a negative when they disagree with you, this is a total menace and not in the right spirit but some people are just plain mean like that. Unfortunately it takes your reputation longer to rise again than it did to fall in the first place.

If you have responded to others discussion negatively, it can cause your reputation to drop. If you also use words inappropriate and against mylot's guidelines and to's, it can be another factor. I think you can't know exactly who among the mylot users give you a negative rate. Just add description to your discussion and respond with quality to others discussion and your reputation will go up again. happy mylotting.

Thank you levite for your response, I don't want to know who give me negatife rate. I only want to know, in what topics I get negative rate. If I know in what topics I get negative rate, so I can make improvement to my self. So, only two things make my reputation drop .. or any other reason make my reputation drop?

Hi MasterOnline, I only can give some suggestion maybe can help. please make responses or comments to discussion with some relative aspect to it. If we do not know any about it, then just leave and give your responses and comments to many other discussion that interest you and we have ability on it. Sometimes i found discussion that hard for me to join. I did not pushed myself on it to get several posts count increased, i just give a shot to another topic to try. happy myLot

It is so sad to hear from you. Talking of reputations, we do not have the control to it. It is the other member's who gives us rate. If that member did not find your answer helpful, he/she will give you negative ratings. That that will decrease your mylot reputation. If I may suggest, when you respond to a discussion, make it sure that you were able to answer the concern of the poster of the discussion. Elaborate more your answers. You can also give some examples if necessary.with me, i never give negative comments to other members. I just appreciate their responses.

I hear you rberon, it shows that you have grown a lot here to get to that point where you just show appreciation to other mylotters comments. But not everyone is at that stage in their mylot experience yet. Maybe one day we will all be able to make it to that point. I look forward to it but I'm not holding my breath until it happens. I hope you give me a plus on this one. :) Have a nice day friend.

Your reputation drops when someone gives you a negative rate, however if you are new & just reached your 100, your reputation starts from 1. I mean Your reputation increases depending on the Plus ratings you get. If the reputation dropped , the only reason is that someone might have marked you -ve because they didn't like your response. reputation usually drops after getting around 10 -ve rating & increases after getting 10 +ve ratings depending on the ratio.

When you reach your 100 posts you will get a star and a rating, that is the number. Try making quality posts and quality discussion. Quality post is the one that counts not just quantity.

This happened to me also. I used to have a number 9 on my star. Your reputation will be affected by the comments of your readers and there is no way for us to find out who gave you negative comments.

hi there masteronline, someone gave negative ratings to me also and I'm not not going spend any time worrying about it because I know that what goes around comes back around, it's called Karma. So you just need to continue doing the right things and post good quality discussions and comments and don't allow this petty little incident to get to you. Have a wonderful night my friend. Sweet dreams.
