Lazy? Hardheaded? okay don't read mylot's guidelines and FAQ's then.. don't ask fellow mylotters "why?" if any of your posts was deleted, don't complain if your earnings is so small, don't be surprised that your reputation is 1, don't feel bad when other members tell you that you won't stay long in mylot then.. don't rant about mylot, don't start a discussion declaring that mylot is a scam, don't get angry if you got banned then.. don't go back.. please okay forget about the last one because mylot is sooo great they still welcome members that get banned before.. I just think about saying that if ever there is a member who will tell me that he/she doesn't want to read the guidelines[b][/b] and also to remind those who keep complaining about mylot that if they just read and follow mylot's guidelines they will never be in trouble. What do you think about this? Do you think my way is quite rude? Or do you think it's a nice way to say how important reading the guidelines is? How about you my friend? What would you say if ever there is a member telling you he/she doesn't want to read the guidelines?

I think that there are many who do not read guidelines and it does in fact show. Not just on myLot but really around the entire Internet. Then there are going to be a lot of people who play the hurt little innocent victim card from the big bad website. I think that there are going to be people who might not feel like guidelines are important, perhaps they are lazy, arrogant, just stubborn, any kind of reasons. Granted it is not to say these people cannot see the light. But many of them refuse to. They just make the same mistakes, until they leave with frustrations that they would not had, had they not invested some time into reading it. You hear the same old story over and over again. Especially if you have been here for quite some time. That's just the way it seems to be.

Perhaps some are blondes? Perhaps some like blondes? [i]Make sure you ask for clarifications on discussion topics or responses when necessary or help other users to get their point across if they are not able. We like to think of ourselves as one big happy family. [/i]- http://www.mylot.com/o/guidelines.aspx I like that one! It's good. So its ok to say a member is lazy, arrogant, stubborn? I don't know, it doesn't sound like the way to go. I like this discussion and glad it was made .. I want to learn too! I like people are discussing things freely. I just can't get my head around .. it is ok to call other members lazy or arrogant. I guess so, if you say so.

yeah I agree with you matt that's just the way it is there will always be someone who doesn't feel like reading the guidelines, who just don't listen, who doesn't care what other people say but there are also members who just don't have that much idea of how important reading the guidelines is and they just needed to be informed. Hopefully new members can learn a lot from this discussion.

I am a person who tends to try to minimize the problem, I do not like asking for trouble and that means that I do not like the problem. I like the problem. However, as much as possible I will try to not take the route as a way of solving the problem. If I collided with a problem, I am happy to open up to a change for the good of me and others. That's why I am always stick with the rules and regulation as far as I still can follow, but I think it is have to follow the rules and regulation if we want to exist here for any longer. That's my opinion.

yeah that's good for you that you stick with the rules and regulations because I believe doing that is a great way to stay longer in mylot, I like this "I am happy to open up to a change for the good of me and others" because it means you are very open-minded and you always listen to others opinion and that's a very nice attitude not only here but also in real life.

A wonderfull way of teeling the other read the faq again and again. I liked the way you did it. It humours as well as informative. i hope all new as well as old mmber will read this and agry on it. This is not a rude way.It is nice way to tell. Sometime if you play opposite it work fine. One more thing i want to say that you told mylot is generous that they welcomed the banned member. How they came to know one persosn got banned. They don't know that person signedup had banned that why they allow them. You can't have another account with the same email id do you?

I am glad some members appreciate this discussion, I believe if members (especially new members) will see it the way you do it would really help them because I just do it this way to get the attention of many members but my real intention is to inform. Regarding new account if someone get banned, I don't have that much knowledge about this but it is quite a common knowledge for many members (I assume) that some of the existing members here were banned before. hmmm you're question is really interesting I hope more senior members can explain it for us.

If in case I warn or tell someone about the violation but s/he wouldn't listen. I would not argue anymore after giving the points s/he needs to know. I wouldn't waste time with people who don't listen. And if one refused to read the guidelines, they can count their days here. I am sure that the person who don't read guidelines are the ones that always ends up violating myLot guidelines. Sooner or later, that person will be banned for violating the guidelines again and again.

hi mel, I understand your take on this I agree with you that it is unnecessary to explain things for people who don't listen but it's different for new members who just don't have that much idea about the possible consequences of not reading the guidelines sometimes when we just tell them it is important to read the guidelines they won't care that much but when we tell them about the consequence like getting banned the reaction may be different and some of them will really listen and will ask more questions about mylot especially what the other things that they should not do.

Hi Jlyn Nice to see you around again phil, Yup we can't avoid people like that. But that is okay with me as long as the person don't get all so angry at me for telling them that they might get banned or they're violating something. So far, my experience with those people, normally new to myLot also, are okay. They listened and thank me. No problems with them they are gonna be staying here for a long time for sure. Some who easily heats up can rant all they can and get banned

yeah at leas if they will say that they read the guidelines but they just can't understand some of the things stated in the guidelines then that is quite more understandable than saying they don't read the guidelines at all. But it is still not a very good reason because we call always ask our fellow mylotters about the things we don't understand so that they can clarify and explain it for us.

The thing is, Alottodo, you are one of the very people that should be reading and trying to understand all this "yadda ... yadda ..." stuff that Phillyguy is saying. In the Guidelines it says that we should not answer with one word responses such as "yes" or "no", and "yay" would also fit into this category. If you did not like the fact that he was going on about this subject, then you had several options. You could have ignored it and moved on. You could have responded that you did not agree with his viewpoint and moved on. You could have responded that you did not agree and stated your reasons why, which would have furthered the discussion. You could have asked why this issue was bothering him so much to get a better understanding of the matter and at the same time it would have furthered the discussion, which by the way is the point of this site. Or you could have just responded with a reply that illustrated exactly what he was discussing in the first place.

Someone doesn't have to join MyLot first to know reading guidelines, TOS & FAQ's are important. When we join particular sites (specially legit and trusted), we must read and follow their rules to avoid any bad consequences to our account. If that person still new in online earning business I still can understand. But if that person already veteran, I believe that person had brain damage

"What would you say if ever there is a member telling you he/she doesn't want to read the guidelines?" I would say "thank you for all your potential earnings that will get redistributed into the other myLot members' accounts when your account gets deleted for continued Guideline violations".

This is the problem.A lot of people are so lazy to read the guidelines. I believe not all offenses are done with the intentions of cheating. I believe that they just do not know that there is a violation with what they are doing. This does not means that they are victims. Laziness will not justify anything. A violation committed entitles them to being punished. This is why it is just more practical to read the guidelines.

I agree some members who violated the rules is unintentional because sometimes they really don't have an idea about such violations because they didn't read the guidelines but still it is our responsibility as a member to read the guidelines so it is still their fault and worse is some members even though they've been told to read the Guidelines and FAQs to learn more about the DO's and DON'Ts it seems that they didn't listen at all because they are still committing the same mistakes again and again.

Then I will leave that member alone and suffer the consequences of not reading the guidelines. Reading guidelines are imperative in any website you join. One might not necessarily read them rules in one seating, at least, they have to familiarized with the rules. It's simple, why can't some people do it?

Yeah so simple but for some reasons some members don't get it and maybe they just need to be warned (uhm informed) about the possible negative consequences of not reading the guidelines and maybe through that they will consider reading the guidelines.

hi phillyguy NO not at all rude as you are gettiong our attention. reminds me of the two men and the one man;s donkey. the donkey's owner told his A.s.s to go forward but the donkey refused. So the owner picked up a board and whacked the donkey on the fore head, the balky donkey then really moved. the other mand scolded the owner. The owner replied" I love my A.s.s but first I had to get his attention. See you just got my attention and i had to read the whole thing. reverse psychology usually really works well as you have to get ou r attention first. wham. nothing rude in being honest and perhap[ if you get fifteen out of thirty mylotters to actually read the guidlines and the FAQ's you have avccomplished a great dea,. way to go. thanks Philly. hugs from hatley

Hello phillyguy, Your way is not rude but we cannot force/advice people always to read the guidelines it is mandatory that one should read it once registering anywhere. What would you say if ever there is a member telling you he/she doesn't want to read the guidelines? - I would say OK then you will come to know it that how important is to read it after you will start participating more and more here.

hi sjvg you're right we cannot force anyone to read the guidelines always but we can advice them to at least read it even once or every once in a while because some members (especially new members) just needed to be reminded of the importance of it or if doesn't work they should be warned of possible consequences of not reading the guidelines. But "I would say OK then you will come to know it that how important is to read it after you will start participating more and more here" is a nice way too it's like a warning a more polite way

Don't tell me what to do. Is that being rude? Who made you the boss? Is that being rude? Are you hardheaded? Is that being rude? ____________ I want to read the guidelines as guidelines. I think people should read the guidelines and faq's. I certainly want to read a guideline as it applies to me. I think we should also look at the word guideline, itself. That says something. It says this is not rule. This not a commandment. This is not even a requirement. If it was a rule it would say discussion rules. It is a guide line. It is a way to do something. A guide line is a right way to use the mylot in reference to how mylot.com would like a person to use the website. That is, a line that is pointing in a direction to go. I am happy that mylot took the initiative to label them guidelines and not mylot rules because it shows someone was thinking when they were created. In reverence to my first paragraph. I think I understand you phillyguy. You are ticked about how some members use mylot or at some of the discussions. I look at this discussion as a rant and there is a rant discussion category in mylot(so cool). People who say mylot is a scam might have a delusion to what mylot is. Perhaps the members that are in "trouble" need our help and not to be called a name? I understand though your frustration phillyguy. Can we discuss together like friends?

Is that being rude? soory but I don't get your exact message here, are you saying that I am bossy? because I believe I am not I made this discussion to warn and inform members about possible consequences of not reading guidelines if you will notice I always try to be helpful to new members when they are asking about certain things about mylot so my intention here is to inform. Maybe the way I use words can be misinterpreted but I just try to be creative because I want to get the attention of fellow mylotters especially new members who probably don't have that much idea about the consequences of not reading mylot. I believe mylot didn't name it rules because it is not just a list of rules there are things like this "Feel free to express your happiness with the myLot community. We love hearing how much you like myLot" which is not a rule but there are also some rules listed in the guidelines "Create more than one myLot account per person. Creating multiple accounts is grounds for immediate account cancellation and forfeiture of all earnings" is definitely a rule because if it is not then why mylot banned members who violate it, right?

Yes, I agree there phillyguy failure to observe the guidelines in the case of mutilple accounts is prohibited and yeah pretty much we can call it a rule in the guidelines. What I meant was I am glad mylot used the word guidelines because I think it is smarter. In the Don’t ‘s it also says, Thank everyone that responds or comments on your discussion. This will not increase your earnings. I doubt that means, members are not allowed to say thanks, now that would be silly. Thank you is a polite way of expressing appreciation. It means, I believe simple one line statements for getting $ and advancement is not the way to go about contributing. So I am saying the majority of the guidelines are common sense type issues and not stringent rules. Post to “flame” other users! Being mean to others is just not fun. Anything derogatory that is directed at a myLot user is strictly prohibited. Just be nice and have fun! This is another rule. What I meant with my first paragraph is exactly like you described in your creativity “I want to get the attention of fellow mylotters”. I too wanted to get your attention. What I meant was that if you call a member lazy or hardheaded that sounds to me like it is against the rules? Rules what rules? (see above). Relax phillyguy I am on your side, if your side is to make mylot a fun place? I also think you are not in a discussion about this because you want to be mean. I think you made it because you care and I appreciate a good discussion about this stuff because it might well do some good for new, intermediate and even some older members who need some refreshment because we are talking about how we can follow the guidelines and be better members right for the betterment of mylot community?
