A friend of mine told me just few mins ago that what ever discussion you open and if it has about 10 responses.. you find minimum 2 to 3 person on your friends list in that discussion.. Be it on mylot or dogs or relationships or any other topic. so this got us thinking how many active members does mylot actually have.. my friend guessed less than 100.. i guess if he is right about 500. So what is your take?

Hi asweetie, the simple answer is I haven't a clue. I know that the people on my friends list are active unless there is some reason they aren't able to be on here and mainly I see the same users by replying mainly to their discussions. But when I reply to a random discussion on the home page there can be many active users who I have never even come across before which leads me to believe there are whole pockets of mylotters one never actually comes across, possible who are active more in interests that I'm not interested in in so our paths never cross. But I'm happy to go along with Lambys estimate. It certainly isn't anything like the number at the bottom of the page.

hi thea, thanks for the response and you may be right but as a matter of fact out of the 14 responses i got so far for this discussion only 2 are not in my friends list and i usually see only 3 or 4 person making discussions in my friends list and i add everyone who asks for the add or who responds to my discussions and whose discussion i respond to so i must be having around 170 or more and only 3 or 4 active is a cause of concern.

That's because if you just add friends randomly by only looking at one discussion how do you know if you have the same interests in common. I choose my friends carefully as there is no point having a friend on the list who only posts on computer interests for example. It also helps if you hit it off with someone. A lot of my friends reply to my discussions but I wouldn't expect them to if they weren't interested in the subject, and the same with them.

I think its only about 100 no more than 200. Its always the same people starting discussions and respoonding to them.

hi lelin, thanks for the response and your response is very short but totally to the point and yes i feel the same that there are only very limited person who are always making discussions or responding to the discussions. If even 50% of 200,000 people are active then i dont think we can easily see the discussion made be one time and again and probably wont ever see his or her idscussion on home page as by the time the page would load 10 new discussions would come up.

Hi asweetie, I believe I am one of those appearing on your friends list. I was going to skip right past this discussion, but only because I don't know the answer to the question you are asking. I wouldn't have a clue on how to figure out how many active users there are. It is impossible to answer questions when you don't know anything about the topic. For example, you say the word "sports" to me, and my eyes will glaze over. I am not here very often, so it is difficult to get as much accomplished as I would like to. I do try to keep up as much as possible.

hi malamar, thanks for the response and i dont know answer of this question seriously. I put the figgure at 500 but then i may be well off the mark and it may be 50,000 so i really dont know. i was just very curious when i asked it.

Well friend, you have done good research but my take will be. All the users will not be logging into my lot at a time if that happens then My lot server will hang up. So, daily some number will log in and do post discusions and do their work as usual. In some of my discussions no friend of mine is involved. I cannot guess how many will be active because I concentrate more on responding and creating my discussion, other issues are secondary for me..

I think mylotters are real active when they first join then slow down as time progresses. I post from time to time but not near as much as when I first joined mylot. I think people enjoy something alot more when they first discover it and as the newness of it wears off they do it or use it alot less.

I think I had better respond here or you will soon be counting me among those that are not active I have no idea how many are still active - amd what do you indeed consider as active? Those that post once a day, once a week or once a month? There are many more than you are suggesting nad even though the actual myLot 'population' is not all active by a long way, there are many of us here a lot if the time and others who just pop in once every now and then. Many do not post on the discussions but have created accounts just to complete the tasks. Do you consider those users as active even though you do not see them on the discussions? We are far from becoming extinct!

hi mys, thanks for the response and well active person are those who come here and post or take part in discussions how less the number of discussions may be but they should be here 3 times a week or may be atleast twice. When i check the members who are making discussions it is same group of 50 or so person who are making regular discussions and few new ones and once they know they wont be paid by simply making discussions but actual hard work here they vanish..or still they looking for referrals.. well those who come here only for tasks are well i wont count them as active because mylot basically is not a task compnay but a social networking site.. tasks are just fringe benefits and if they want to do only task then they can go to mturk which got far too many tasks then here.. i do wish atleast 50% of the membrs are active

We don't see many members going active at the same time as we are in different time zones. But with the responses I get I think they are still good numbers of active members here but they only come here sporadically as they have life to live in the real world and mylot is only a place for most to unwind from a hard days work and a link to their friends in the virtual world.

hi zandi, thanks for the response and yes we all live in different time zones when it is 9 am here it is 9 pm in usa which 3 am in united kingdom. So not all can be active at same time but take this discussion for example , only two out of 14 responses i got were from people who are not in my friends list so i can say not many active people are there whom i have not interacted in some discussion, hense number can be in hundreds who are really active.

Hi asweetie, For me it is depend on the topics or interest that you brought up. Me for example. I love to start a discussion about football and most of my friends doesn't have any idea about it. So I never expected a response from them. I usually only have a friends request from someone that love this interest after respond to my discussion or read my response or comment there. But if I started a general discussion and most of us can give a response, most of my friends will leave their response there and I think I got more response from my friends then others. I think there are about 10,000 active members here (people who participate in the discussion at least once a week). But for daily activities, it is more like between 300-400 members.

hi ankuler, thanks for the response and yes many interests get lot less responses than other interests but if you see the number of active person on all the interest as you said once per week then it is not hugh and those who are active 4 or 5 days a week are very less in hundreds as you guessed. Your guess is as good as mine and no one except mylot admin has answer to it i guess.

I also have the same question in mind. I don't think athat at least ten thousand people are onine in Mylot at the same time. If not, the number of responses we recieve to each discussion would have multiplied exponentially. Recently, I am seeing that many of my friends who were very active in Mylot are absent. This is affecting the number of responses I get for each discussion.

hi daliaj, thanks for the response and and yes most of person whom i or my friend have reffered are not active infact none is and my friend has over 2 pages of referrals on his account. And yes i am not seeing many persons whom i have added over last few months so i guess the number is very less.

I don't know how many active members there are on here. I wish there was a way to find out. I know that the population is getting closer to 200,000 every day, but I wonder how many users out of that amount are truly an active member of mylot. When skimming through the responses I see a lot of people that I've never seen before. Some have been here longer than I have. Some are new. Some are old members that closed their account and opened up a new one. Admin should clean house. I mean, if banned or closed accounts come up as blank pages then why even bother having them be part of the population? Or if they don't want to do that they can have a separate population where only the active members are listed. That way we would know the real amount. It's a thought... Happy mylotting!

I don't know how to calculate about how active mylot member But, if I see in here, alot of new discussion every minute. After I send response to discussion, I always go to home menu and I see new discussion. That is means a lot of member active in here

hi masteronline, thanks for the response and yes there are lots and lots of discussions here on mylot and there is one new every few minutes but take a look and you would find it is mostly a group of person who is posting them mostly. You can see a same person making many discussions and also try to follow the ones who made dscussions and you would find that soon most become inactive and their posts remain same even after a month of them becoming inactive.

hi asweeti well I find that about thirty of my friends respond'to most of my discussions at least 75 percent of the time, and I'would hazard a guess of maybe about a thousand people are 'actually active here most of the time. I am just guessing of course. but there are a lot more that are active than were when I joined two years ago. and the topics seem to be expanding' a lot more too.

hi hatley, thanks for the response and about 30 friends of yours response and i found you got over 300 friends so if 30 respond then i can guess over 200 must be those who probably never respond , nor you would be seeing them post any discussion of thier own. yes it should be somewhere between 500 to 2000 person who are active here. I just wish atleast 50% of the person who join here , remain active, it would help all of us.

I think you're right, here you find a new discussion almost every 5 minutes and that's nice because that's mean that people are interested in this community and i'll else add that almost 50% of new discussions are very oringinal topics that makes people talk a lot and makes you feel passion.

When I post a discussion, I notice I don't get that many responses, from my friend here in Mylot, I have a lot of friends, on my friend list and I don't get a lot of responses from them, when I post a discussion, so that tell me there are not that many active people here in Mylot.

hello asweetie, to be honest with you, i have no idea, it can be hundreds, thousands of users are here online almost every single day. i didn't realize that the lamb is doing the counting people well, i hope mylot creates a feature that will determine how many exactly are online almost every day and not just the population of this site. as far as am concern, some of those people are inactive
