Once you have a rating of over 500 (which is very, very hard to get), you'll be allowed to post links in a copy-paste manner. The problem is getting to that high a rating. Your are, however, allowed to paste links into private messages, so that's one way to get around it except you can only private message your MyLot friends to prevent you from spamming people. If you really want to share links on MyLot discussions, your best bet is to use a service like bit.ly to shorten the entire URL down to small, bite size links. That way you can just as easily write the whole link out, which gets around the limitations on copy pasting and also means people are less likely to spam links.

Hi vastari Please get yourself corrected dear. The 500 is NOT DIFFICULT to get. You participate better and give quality inputs and see the 500 is easier. I have seen people reach the figure in 1 month and even less Have a great time here

@ashutoshloveyji, It's very appreciable that you are a web developer and know all about the same. I just wanted to suggest you ( not advise ) that as far as the learning process is concerned, no one can say that he/she is perfect and for knowledge i think sky is the limit.......keep learning but with little politeness which will be helpful for future...!!

Never, in HTML. myLot members use a different code. Actually though, you're better off NOT sharing 'links' unless they ASK for them. (That's why I frequently refer to 'links you can ask me for'.) Does myLot not allow you to send addresses, or just code? I haven't seen the restriction on 'addresses,' but I haven't tried to send any or seen anyone else try. myLot messages aren't email, though; they're more like private comments-section comments.

I am just wondering what message are you talking about? Are you banned for sending a link to your friend via message? I assume you are talking about private or personal message. As far as I know, it is on comments, discussion, response to discussion that we are prohibited to post our referral link, but not to a private or personal message.

You can always write links in your discussions and PMs, as long as, in discussions, don't spam refs link. You're not allowed however to copy-paste into your responses and comments until you reach 500 posts, it's just a matter of time. Up to that time, you have to read and write your links. A little trick here, there is a way around that limitation if you disable Javascript.

There is no restriction for you to send link in a private message, my friend. The only restriction is that when you post link on the discussion page...

Upto my knowledge 500 is not number of post it just the Rank you had earned in that particular interest..Thanks..

Hello, Are you able to send a private message with your browser ? Do you see your private messages ? I am saying this because I sent you one yesterday, with no links : I don't spam my friends, please don't spam your friends. But you are normally able to copy a link -- not to paste it -- in a message and to send it to any friend : life gave you the link to the FAQ about private message and their etiquette at myLot. Have a nice day.

Hi ashutosh, welcome to mylot city. Well happy to know that you want to send messages to your friend, but it can't be possible i think, if you want to send the messages then copy and paste thats it. Have a nice day.
