Why do people do this

I make discussions to earn money and I'm just tired of people that come on to my discussions and say it's going to be deleted or I'm not doing this right. If it gets deleted it gets deleted I'm still learning with this site. I understand some people are trying to help me, but some people just want to be rude I feel like I'm back in high school when people are so rude. It makes me not want to even come on to mylot to earn money it makes me want to look for other things to do. I am hear to try my best to earn money right now since this is all I can do. I just wish people would grow up and stop being so childish. If I start a discussion about something and you want to add a comment thats fine just add a comment about the discussion not oh it's gonna be deleted or your doing this wrong.

Your're right, Kerri. There is no reason to be rude. If someone is being rude to you then you should report them. I'm sorry. I thought you meant that just because someone told you that the discussion was a violation that you felt that way. I think and I could be wrong but what I've seen and what I've done myself is to respond to a discussion and then just tell them for future reference and direct them to the faqs and guidelines. I am not trying to be rude or make anyone feel stupid but so that they just know so they don't continue to lose money.

Hi Kerriisthebest, I've done that from time to time to newer members. Why? I want to help them plus help the others here. If someone makes discussions that others respond to and that discussion gets deleted then you are not the only one losing money. Everyone that responds to your discussion loses money. If you keep getting discussions deleted then people will just stop responding to your discussions and everyone loses and you'll be wasting your time. Truthfully I don't think anyone is trying to be rude when we do that. We know full well that when we respond and tell you that we won't be earning a thing off the time we spent to read and respond and neither will anyone else. It'd be really cool if rather than get all insulted, the new people would take the advise and just go in and read the FAQs and guidelines.

I understand what you feel. Some 'seniors' here might act like that. But, don't worry. Just be free when you're posting. The deleter is the admin, not them. Read the guidelines, so you will understand this site. I was like you. I was so confused with this site. But after I read the guidelines, everything is clear now. So, don't worry and happy mylotting!

kerriisthebest most of us older ones will if we see you have broken a mylot rule will just put in the tag guideline violations as newones yourself included evidently hate being told that they should read the guidelines, the rules of discussion and most important the questions and answers. You do realize if your discussion is deleted you will not earn a cent from it?When I tell oneones about the info I am not being rude, I am using common sense as if you know what you are doing in making a discussion you will earn money and if you do not you run the risk of its being deleted.Deleted posts gather no earnings.You surely were shown and told about reading the mylot admins information when you joined and they themselves tell you new comers to read all the information.Do you call them rude?We are all here to earn money but also to make friends, at least I am as I am lonely.It is not being childish if one wants to share the ins and outs of mylotting that you learned for yourself with a new comer, I can see being angry if I were to call you insulting names and flaming you, but thats not what I do at all. I just suggest the same thing that mylot admins suggests.

Kerri, I totally agree with you on this when you have someone that is completely following you around and saying that your discussion is going to get deleted. It can be annoying. But as someone has said above, your best bet to do is just ignore it, check to see what you might have done wrong, and if you hadn't found anything wrong, then just ignore them. Because they are just being plain annoying, and probably don't know anything about what they are talking about and they probably don't have anything else better to do with they're time, instead just follow people around hoping that they would goof up so they can say something about it. Cause they have nothing else valuable to do with they're time. In the end they are just wasting they're time and money responding to your discussion, to were they could be making more money responding to other discussions that won't be deleted. No one is making them respond to your discussion right. Exactly so why did they respond to your discussion in the first place. Anyway, besides that, you know I am always here for you and if you need any advice on some discussion that you are planning on starting and you are not sure if it will get deleted, just ask me and I'll try my best in seeing if that discussion is going to be deleted. I know that you are trying your hardest to earn money, to help out with the bills around the house and send money for your child support and it is really hard to do that, because you can't even get a job because of your health issues at the moment. I feel your pain. Don't worry I'm here for you. Keep up the good work and don't give up. We all made mistakes on here too and we learn from them and believe me, you will eventually get how things run on mylot and things will get better.
