Where does everybody go?

I've been on mylot for almost a year now and since joining, I've noticed that there are a few regular posters as well as other users who's discussions I've answered. There's some that I haven't seen in a while and I was just wondering what happened to them. I've gotten to know some of the users through their discussions and I just get to wondering how things are going from them since they don't post any more new discussions. I'd like to think that things are going fine with the people who are MIA and maybe they're just taking a break for a while. But whatever the reason, I wish they'd come back because I enjoyed hearing from them and answering their discussions :(

I know what you mean. Sometimes I miss them right away within a week or so, but some I don't know I have missed until I see them again and think Wow! Where have you been?

Same with me! Only a few usernames have stuck out to me because they used to be regular posters and lately I haven't heard from them. But you're right, there are some that I don't realize have been on until I see their name again lol

I know what you mean... A lot of people come on sporadically or not at all these days. There are still a bunch of people who have been here forever though. But it seems like not quite as many. But it's hard to stay tuned to MyLot or any site, forever, just because eventually you start getting busy with things "in real life" and just lose track of online stuff. I know that I took about a 7 month break from MyLot for a while, and I'm slowly getting back into it... . Maybe some of these old regulars will meander on back...

Yeah, I've noticed that a lot of the new people don't stay around too long. It definitely takes patience on mylot if you really want to stick around and earn. I've taken a few breaks here and there but it was only for a few weeks when I got really busy with school and work. I try to come on here as much as possible but sometimes it can be hard.

Well, I think everyone is fine. Some of us might be busy in our family or workplace. So they take a break for a while from mylot. I have seen some of friends post again here after 1 month inactivity. And they said they are so busy after getting new job. It is great that here we can care each other. Wish everyone get good weekend.

Yes I pften wonder also, I have thought about many of them especially when I hear of disasters in some countries I always hope that my Mylot friends are not involved in them..I worry about many young ones that I used to talk to, I just have to hope they just moved on...

I wonder that too! And like you, I'd like to think that when they're not here, it's because they'd go on with their lives. That they are up to bigger and better things. There are also a few here that have helped me a few times with some kind words when I really needed it. And it would really be great if they'd just pop in here to say hi.

I wish they'd do that too. A lot of times I don't even realize they've been gone until they start posting gain. But then there's a few I've actually noticed haven't been on here and I kind of miss hearing from them

well, there are many reasons why people can't be on mylot. When we are busy with other things at home, at work and maybe some spend more time in other websites. Some are just tired, so they want to take a break from mylot but they usually come back, especially if they have already earned money from mylot. another is when the internet connection is out or when the computer has problems. Those reasons are all i could think of for people who haven't been active here since. oh, and another, some members are bored and are not earning that much here, so it's only expected that they would search for money else where.

Yes, I know that people do get bored and leave. But I'm talking about the members who have really participated a lot and been here for a while. I miss seeing their discussions or responses to my discussions.

I try to be active on the site, because I want to earn some extra money, but I did take a break for a little while so I wasn't on site for a month or so.

There are some people on here that are always on and i enjoy talking to them one of my favorites on here is giftsandbags and she always has something to say and is always doing something with her life and she seems to never be bored i do know that. There are sometiems for a few months that i dont come on her ebut this yea ri am trying to make sure i am on here more because i would like my money flow to be more and i woul dlike to make more money online this year and i have been also trying to push my articles. I do understand that people on here go away for sometime because it can be boring or just not intrested in working online and what not and thats my opinion not sure why others disappear on here but it could also be a sad situation as well.

Yes, I understand that people get busy and can't get on mylot. It's happened to me before where I didn't have the time to put into mylot because I was busy with school and work. But now, I try to get on regularly every day because I want to maximize my earnings and also because I really do enjoy this site.

I guess after awhile you become used to some posters and have learned so much abut them that you're lost when they're gone, especially if they've started some really great discussions. I wonder where some people go too, but perhaps they are just too busy in their real lives to come back or maybe they will again in the future. Too many things can happen at any time, there's never a guarantee anyone will stay inone place for long. Cherish the times you have seen them and keep them in your hearts, for who knows what is happening in their life to make them "disappear" so to speak on this website.

I've been here off and on for a little over 2 years maybe almost 3 but....i tend to go in spurts. I get on here talk alot and then life gets busy offline so i end up not having time between work and things at home to be online as much. I quit doing alot of things for a bout a year...i did anything to not be home really and a consquence of that was i wasnt online as much either.
