Hi friend! As mylotter we had a number beside our username that indicate the no of post we had made (except those deleted). That all we know but how the counting work? I had made many discussion and replied to many of them but the counter didn't increses why? I mean to say if the post counter is addup for replying on other's discussion only?

rajeev - When we start discussion we get one number and irrespective of the number of reply comments we post our number will not increase on account of that discussion. However our earnings will increase depending on number of reply comments we post depending on quality. There are mylot members who start less number of discussions but they post quite a good number of responses. some mylot members are there who start quite a good number of discussions but post less responses in others discussions. (yes they will have less time after posting reply comments.)

I've already told you that you were making too many posts, many of which were getting zero replies. As already pointed out, this number isn't a post counter. Please read the FAQ's and guidelines carefully. Without doing so, you are your own worst enemy!

Its not indicating the number of post we made.. Its called user rating. Read it here:www.mylot.com/o/faq/faq11.aspx It will increase when you response to any discussions.. and for same discussion it will increase by one when you comment to some response .. but only one time. Similarly it will increase when you first reply to your discusssion.. But it will not increase for every post.

Ok they say it as rating but i mean it as post counter may i be fool, and one mor thing if that is rating then what we don by +/- what is this? To the point, What according to, it mean if i made discussion then i have one addup in rating (what they called)and then one for replying in the discussion. Mean two maximum for each discussion. thanks for the link and reply too....

@PurplePeopleEater it mean i got only 1 for the discussion i start and not for replying it. This mean for each discussion only one rating is given to user by mylot.

And in addition, the +/- button is used to rate someone's post, and it would be related to the number inside your star, not with your user rating And it was related with the link that akp gave.. Please don't just thanks with the link, please read it.. ^^;

that again is not a post counter repeat after me its only an activity counter not post counter as it will not count comments that me make on a discussion. it will count our response but comments are not counted but they still are paid. so you may make a response to a discussion and that adds a point but you can make several comments to that same discussion and they will not show on the activity counter but they will earn for you just thesame.

Hello rajeev, actually before when i joined mylot (2008), any kind of post a discussion was considered one point regardless if there's a response or not. but the problem there was that people were making TOO MANY discussions, and less responses, i know, that's why it was easily for me to reach 500 even though it took me literally a week to do it. but they changed that, since then when you start a discussion, there's no point unless some one responds. it's a good thing, such improvement will challenge the lotter to make more good points on the discussion. believe me, if you really want to do better in mylot, COPY and PASTE means absolutely NOTHING. i know, after reachiing 500 thought it was meaningful, but it wasn't. have a nice day

Thanks for the old information that you given me. Also it is good that mylot did like that it help in getting good discussion. About my 500 reaching , i am in hurry becoz as i wan to copy paste it doesn't mean that i will copy from a website and paste here user will know that for sure and rate be negative. It just that i have slow connection and get loss many time so it harsh to type long discussion or reply again alslo you can see i can't post a long url here you can checl my one of the cricket discussion there i mention about it.
