Hello Mylot , I am sure most of you have seen the chaos unfold, when Mylot was abruptly shutdown, disabling us to post reposes, make some discussions, and limited the Mylot website. I have seen that some topics had the whole discussion removed, and without a notice, it was like 2-3 days this site was dead. If anyone could tell me how this could happen, or what caused it i would be happy to know. Anyways good to see the site back up again :)

That wasnt the only thing. Discussions were only abled to be viewed by friends, New discussions could not be replied to, also your "interests" were deleted. But as you can see now, most things are now fixed.

I posted 4 discussions Sunday and still they have not recieved any responses. SO I fear the glitch affected all discussions started this weekend. I am sure it will be fixed shortly. Hopefully anyhow. I alsdo could not respond to discussions with 0 responses. Could respond to any that had at least one response already though. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

i wasn't around this weekend and didn't get to see the crash but I'm glad it's back up. who knows why these things happen, sometimes systems just get overflowed or get a virus or whatever and BOOM! But nice to see it working now. this does explain why the folks I sent the link to join this weekend haven't done anything yet, as they were anxious to get started. I'll have to call them and tell them it's working now.

It was probabl a glitch in their system, and that is why we couldn't post disucssions, or respond. I had a hard time finding any to respond to. Like the one user said, even our intersts weren't there. I got worried, as I have quite a few interests, and not being able to post to them was a little disheartening. I think things will all be up to par soon though, as it isn't like mylot to leave things go and not work on them. As long as I can post responses to any discussion and any of my intersts, I am happy. At least this category is up now, so that is good. I really like mylot and I want to remain here for as long as I can. Good luck to you and happy mylotting.

I have observed it also yesterday that my posted discussion have been removed and there are no discussions posted. My rate also is deducted to 1 point. I was thinking I have violated rules in mylot that's why my discussion was remove. I never though that it has site problems.

every time i logged on norton caught a trojan trying to get in, maybe thats why it was down ,to fix the problem but it would be nice if they let us know. but as usual they stay mum sort of like the white house the big kahuna's.

I honestly freaked out when I logged in and I couldn't post anything! At first, I thought it must be because I used a public computer yesterday (at work, during break time). It was the first time I opened myLot in a different computer other than my laptop, so I wasn't really sure. Upon arriving here at home, I checked myLot in my laptop, and it still wouldn't work. Anyways, it's good to see that everything's okay. I really do hope so. I've come to love the site already :)

It has been fixed now, and I think everyone is relieved. I'm not quite sure what happened to make it go down though, and mylot hasn't told us so either they don't know, or don't care to say. The thing that matters is that it's back online.

I see that a lot of people had problems with the site. Today is the first day I have been on in a little while. I wasn't on all weekend because Friday I had a procedure done so I just laid around the house and rested all weekend. It looks like it's fixed now though. I don't know what happened but I'm glad to see that the site is up and running.
