I know that we can't post our reflink in a discussion,only in our profile.Why some members(with high rate-so,I supose that they knows the rules)post their link in a discussion?Is this fair? Rules isn't for all members?What do you think about it?

It is not fair at all but their 'discussions' will be deleted along with any others that are violations once admins start deleting again. If they do it once to often they also lose their account regardless of whether they are new or older Lotters.

This happens daily and I too wonder what on earth are they thinking. As just today I have stumbled on three different discussion where this same person has posted the same referral link. One also bad point with that is that his referral link had absolutely nothing to do with the discussion at all. It amazes me that he is a veteran who should no better and is also setting a bad example to all newer myLotters. I am sure many of us have already reported it but being that it is Sunday Admin may or may not be around yet. But as soon as they are it will be deleted.

You have right!Maybe MyLot admin will be deleted it,but also I think that these members, old or new,should start again with "0"points when post a reflink. Ok,sometimes you can start a wrong disussion...everyone can make mistake...this is not a problem,But i think posting reflink must be "punished" with starting with 0 points!

Yes this is a great thought as it would teach a valuable lesson as ignorance of rules is absolutely no excuse.

" i think posting reflink must be "punished" with starting with 0 points!" Wowwwwww There should indeed be some form of penalty, other than just losing posts, to deter people from posting them. Great idea!

it's definitely break of law. friends listen, we post reflink for earn money,it's by nature. but i think we can earn money without reflink, only in mylot. mylot is space where we get reward for every valuable post by us.

Rules are instituted for the benefit of the community as a whole. There are new members here, that since they are just new here, they don't take our community seriously. They have "fly by night" attitude. They are in a hurry to get referrals for their opportunities. But once these new members get to know MyLot more seriously, they refrain from spamming discussions here.

hi good question some people love to break the rules here and its 'up to us to report these people. nobody is exempt from the rules no matter how old a user or new a user. the rules are meant to be kept. I have seen some too and I have reported them also. as its not fair for anyone to keep breaking rules and still get 'by with it.

I think, they don't know about the rules, if they know they will not go against the rules. I am totally agree with you that rules are rules.....

Are you sure it is a Referral link and not just a link to an article or to the mylot FAQ's or something. It seems rather strange that someone that has been here that long would post referral links. We are however, allowed to post links to other sites or articles. As long as that person does not monetarily benefit.

Most of the time people either post Reflinks 'cause they don't know better and when they do and they know they're not supposed to, they break the rules on purpose.

You can rest assured that no matter who the person is and how long they have here, if they post referral links in the discussion area, there discussion will be deleted, as well as all responses that person received. I think for the most part, the ones doing it just don't know they shouldn't or if they do, they don't really care, or they think that they are exempt from having their discussions deleted, which couldn't be further from the truth. I detest the ones that do it too, but as long as their are members that won't read the guidelines, it will continue to happen, unfortunately. Just hang in there, and good luck to you.
