A while ago I installed Gmail Chat to be able to communicate with a friend of mine. A few minutes ago I logged into MyLot and, of course, replied to a few discussions, after a few minutes I got my first response. How I find out? I got a little pop up from Gmail saying I got mail, this way I can keep up with responses in real time! What tips do you have for us to make browsing mylot easier? :)

I have the notifiers arriving in Yahoo which I keep open and keep refreshing. I prefer to use tabs to keep up with my discussions or responses/comments. Whenever I respond on a newly posted topic, I assume that the user who started it will still be around, so I leave a tab open after responding. I refresh waiting for their comment and then get back to them, or whoever else might comment, immediately and keep the conversation going while we are all online. I really don't understand those who post a topic and then just vanish into thin air without commenting back to at least the first page of responses

Hehe, some people indeed don't seem to know that only your own contributions are rewarded. :)

Yup, it's a little bit more work in the beginning but you'll reap the benefits when you start to get a lot of replies! This way you can write a timely response and hopefully spark a fruitful discussion.

Thank you for your tips! myLot should be improved on notice when someone's friends response or start a new discussion with pop up windows or twinkling message box.

Yup, mylot could pick this up and do something with it. Maybe it will be implemented some day. Mylot is very unpredictable when it comes to adding new features.

I use Yahoo mail. Every time I access mylot, I always log in to my yahoo account to check out whether there are discussions my friends started. I will stay log in to my yahoo account as long as I log in to my mylot account. Whenever my discussions or my responses got response or comment, I will see new mail in my inbox. Moreover, if I use my yahoo messenger active, there will be pop up windows notice me new email received. However, mylot notification received lately.

Hello mylotters, For mail notifier you can use digsby dot com. With this, you can organize all of your email (gmail, yahoo etc), facebook, almost all messenger. You can try it. The installation is simple.

my yahoo give its best to keep me keep up. unfortunately it is little slow. and when i check the button discussion that i had responded, i notice that my lot does not give me a notifications to every comments i had. so sometimes i just lost the track.

I believe there should be an internal notification system instead of that we use tracking methods offered by third parties.

i have also keep my Yahoo mail opened while mylotting. i keep it open so i can monitor what and which kind of notifications are coming in. when i have a new discussion created today, i can keep the discussion going by responding to the notifications at the time i am alerted at the task bar. i also keep my Yahoo Messenger on so it can remind me faster than the mail program. i actually have gmail account. and whenever there is email came in, it will forward it to my yahoo account, automatically when gmail receives it.

hi diamania I work from my email mozilla thunderbird and go to mylot whole view and respond to all the notifications from my mylot friends discussions and then delete as I finish and it works like clock work as i have windows and tabs open. then I work back and forth from my tabs until I am done with the discussions of my friends then go to my lot tab for hot, no responses, new, recent and I browse for the ones I can respond intelligently so I go all over. then I stop and check my own discussions to see if I have new responses that I need to comment on. by then I am about to do this
