Absolutely not this would restrict my earnings as well. I feel mylot is doing great the way it is. They know what they are paying for and not paying for. This is why people need to work harder at what they do here. restricting my posts would not make me want to be here at all. say they restrict it to ten posts per person per day. Then I would have my posts done and be off the site with nothing fun to do. No mylot please don't ever restrict my posts. Just continue not to pay for rubbish.

I understand you perfectly. I start way more than 5 posts a day and would not want this restricted. Thanks for responding back.

Both yes and no. Yes to individuals i.e. there should be restrictions on individuals to open a fixed number of discussion in a day…on some days I see one or two full pages replete with discussions by a single person only and you have to go on scrolling forever to reach other discussions…I think this should stop. On the other hand, no there should not be any restrictions to the actual number of new discussions that can be started as because mylot is a global forum so 24hrs somebody or the other is joining this place with something new.

No because the limit would be reached easily. I don't think that any of the members should be denied the chance to post a discussion because we could forget the topic that we wanted to post about. It would also possibly decrease the amount of really good quality conversations.

I think not. That would really be quite limiting to mylotters. Besides earning from our discussions, being able to post as much as we want really makes mylotting fun. We can be as mundane as we want or we can be totally philosophical. It doesn't matter because either way we get to communicate with others even if not many would respond to a very particular discussion. Now if mylot limits our discussions it would all be about meeting the monthly payout and we will have no interesting--however peculiar--topics in mylot.

Hi there, No I would not want them to do that. There may be some repeat type of discussions but not enough to warrant that. Some of the ones that write many discussions are good at what they do. I can think of a couple that are more apt to start discussions rather than respond. Their discussions are creative and amusing. I would not want to cut these ones off in an attempt to eliminate the few repeat discussions we come across.

Hello. I don't really think that would help, as you would still get repeated discussions. I do think new members should not be allowed to post discussions until they have responded to, say, 50 discussions. That would give them an idea of what makes for a good discussion, and hopefully they would then go on to start quality discussions themselves.

I think as long as the person is posting quality discussions, there is no reason to limit how many they can do per day. And as for repetition and silly discussions, they are generally gotten rid of anyway. And hopefully people learn from that...

If there is any restriction, I would agree that new discussions should be of a certain length, like 500 words or so, and especially not to be just a question like "What do you think about ________?" (fill in the blank) or some other such nonsense.

No. All of us need some advice, answers and just someone to talk to. And what better way than to discuss. We should just be patient and try to respond to everyone,s discussions and answers. We actually learn a lot threw that. Whats up? TATA.

hai sis..how are you???well i dont think there are many who posta more than 5 discuusions per day,because just starting discussions and not getting responses will not hepl them in their earnings...dont you thnk so sis??

Maintaining, thank you. What did you do wrong? Why am i suddenly sis tonight? Just Kidding. You know as well as i do, that one day, you will receive a lot of responses and tomorrow 0 to 1. It is almost like a rollercoaster, if you know what i mean. I now what you are trying to say, but we all can only try our best and to start reducing the amount of discussions, will only have a negative effect. TATA.

i dont think the its right to restrict members to post what they want but i think its much better to delete the duplicate posts.since this is a pay per discussion site its not right to limit people in making more opportunity to make more by posting discussions more.we cant avoid having duplicate discussions but we as members should be responsible enough not to post responses on those copy cats so they cant make money ono their discussions.

yes!sometimes people flood with their discussions and we can't see some different member at all in the scene.We have to scroll to find some others.It is good if all the discussions are interesting.But it is not so.So,I personally feel that mylot should find some way of stopping this flooding of posts.At the least they should impose some intervals for the number of interests.

Oh, no. I think that Mylot should not restrict the number of discussions. There may be thousands of discussions getting started each day, but the number of discussions that interests me is very few. I know that it is the case with other people also. So, Mylot should keep the number open in order encourage people to start more and more interesting discussions.

I think they should restrict the number, because there are too many new users that open new discussions mindlessly about other paying sites or discussions that already exist. I think users shouldn't be allowed to open more than a few discussions per day and that discussion themes should be monitored by someone because some personal things just can't be made in discussions, in my opinion.

nope ., mylot doesn't have any limits on how post or discusions you could create everyday ., so the more post you had the more earnings you will be getting ., enjoy guys and have fun!
3 Feb 10
The thing is the limiting of discussions would not stop the repetitive nature of myLot. It would just mean that there would be fewer active members because they would spend less time on here. In many ways it's much better to have no limits because it means that if someone has got 10 ideas for discussions to post, one of them maybe original. But if limited would maybe go for the other ones which may get more responses and not bother with that more unique one.

I think mylot should limit the number of discussion, and auction them as well. he he. Mylot will make money, and the person starting the discussion will be forced to respond if he or she wants to recover the monies. he he.

hello abhi, I think you had some point on this matter. Like how the admin had restriction with photo uploading. If they can give maximum photo uploads,why not with discussion. Nice suggestion here. Have a good day always

no i think that they should have to make more discussions to be opened on mylot so that we can have more to talk about

I so think they should, but then that probably won't go down to well for most users. Basically, the ones that are posting a lot of discussions per day, ade the newbies, and they post thinking they will earn from all the responses they receive without commmenting back and they don't realize it doesn't work that way. Most of the time, tey are frivolous discussions, which means they aren't diescriptve, have not substand, and probably one liners, which mylot says is a big no no. I hate to see all those discussions from one person, as you know they are only here for the money and not willing to learn anything. Those will never get anything out of mylot whatsoever, and that i a shame. When I see so many discussions form one ueser, I know what they are trying to do, and I usually don't respond to all of them if any at all. I will respond if I can help, but otherwise I will just leave them go. Good luck to you and happy mylotting.
