Do you receive normal notifications? As in if you have posted a discussion, and do you receive email notification when someone response to it? As in if you have posted a response to a discussion, and somebody commented, do you receive email notification after he posted it? Is myLot really back to NORMAL? Please share your experiences after the glitch.

Hi Neil, I started one discussion when it came back and the alerts on that were working fine. The alerts from others only ever work erratically anyway, that's to say I certainly never get them all but never realise as probably get at least half so I just always presume they all are working. So they are back to my normal as it were without any improvemnt. The pm alerts were the only thing which worked over the weekend I think. I still await the day when we'll get notifiers on second responses, it's all very well saying we can see them from the bottom of the started list but sometimes it takes an awful lot of trawling around trying to find the person in question.

yes thea, it's only the pm alerts that were good at that time. now we can only monitor our own topic by keep the page open in a separate tab and refresh it often. you may not get back soon after i post this comment because i think you will not be alerted by email. how did you find this discussion of mine, through alert or from your homepage, discussions my friends started sortie?

I'm answering this from my email alert. I got an alert to your discussion to but do as always and deleted it and opened you up from the home page, I don't like responding initially from the alert box. I've only got one tab open as usual. What I have been noticing recently though is I have to keep re hitting home as it doesn't update time wise.

Actually I'm wondering if it is because I never log out of mylot, since it locked me out I just close down with myself still logged in?

some email notifications are missing. there are some new discussions from my friends that i only see from my homepage but no emails came. and actually, i did not get the notification that you already have posted your response here. so, what can you say about this?

i think what they did is they fix first the glitches in posting and responding to discussions because they know that this is the basic needs of the members. i'm sure they are already in the process in fixing the e-mail notification. they have to do it one by one. do not worry, maybe by the end of the day, the problem will be fix.

I think everything is normal. Thank goodness. I could post responses to new discussions. During the glitch, I was only able to respond to a day old or more discussions not new ones. Since yesterday, I receive email notifications again that comments were left on my old discussions. The discussions I participated in were also acknowledged through email notifications. Most of all, the task I was working on was finally approved yesterday. So yes, everythng is normal for me.

i also received notifications of new responses to the old discussions that i made. those are discussions posted before the glitch. but today, i haven't receive notice of responses, like this time. i also didn't received a notice when my friend post his new topic, within 2 hours ago.
13 Oct 09
Sorry to hear about that. But, I get notifications on both on old and new discussions so I think it is back to normal.

I was not here when Mylot was down as I work nights with Mylot and got here right after it was working normal again, I guess. I seem to be getting all of my notifications coming in as usual so I hope it is fixed now.

Well, notifications thru emails can be edited. You may opt to receive notifications only when a friend approves your friend request, when somebody comments on your post or started discussion, when you subscribed to new discussions by interest and the like. So, your question about these notifications may not be applicable to the other members.

well, i know everything about that. and that's why i wonder why this is happening to me. and to other members who turned their notifications off, this really not meant for them. this one is not a problem with them. thanks for your share.

I know you're such so busy these days. But I am not that so busy either with mylot though I can find time to get back here frequently. It so happened that I was free at that time when I noticed this problem. With the glith that was on the last weekend, it was also terrible.

Wow! I'm glad I was too busy to come in here this past weekend! I've heard about this glitch from two sources now. Just how bad was it? I'm glad I missed it!!! I do remember that, on Friday I believe it was, I stopped receiving email notifications early in the morning and didn't receive any all day. Maybe that was Saturday but I think it was Friday. I guess I was lucky to have so many things to do this weekend! Our weather has taken a very sudden deep dive in temperature so I've been battening down the hatches, getting ready for the really cold weather. I guess this is my experience after the glitch since it's the first time I've logged in since Friday. I should say that it all seems normal to me. I've received tons of email notifications, although I'm not sure when I received them. I don't think I received them this past weekend, though. One thing I've noticed since joining myLot is that when we post a discussion and it is commented on, then we respond to that comment and another response comes after ours, we are not notified. Sometimes, I don't even know that I've gotten comments at all but those times are rare. Exactly what happened this weekend?

the problem happened previously took members not getting logged in for about 8 hours. no one can do anything that time. but this weekend, there seems to be no problem at all, as we can all get in and create new discussions, send private messages to friends, responding to old discussions. but no one can response to new discussions. you can see a lot of new discussions started by friends, with all zero response. we can just create new but no one can response. so there were PMs friends everyone. the next day, there were no discussions in the hot and top discussions sorties.

i guess you still have to receive alerts even on the response and comments. you will only receive alerts if you have selected "notify on" on each friend in your list. you will not get alerts if they are turned off. maybe you can check your settings and find out what you have just set.

It seems the problems have been solved in Mylot. I can receive the normal notifications without problems. Today I posted one new discussion so far, and I received notifications from people who responded to it. And I am also busy with responding others' discussions. And I received their feedback, too. I love China

you will not receive notification if someone commented to a post you made under one's response. you will not also receive notification if you comment to a response you receive from your own discussion. and you will not also receive notification if you post a comment to someone else's response to someone's discussion.
