I was just curious. I have been number one on mylott's hot list this evening for a little while. When I just went back I was gone. I assumed you move down the list or something, but I couldn't find the discussion. Where does it go? I'm just curious. I responded to a mylotter's discussion this evening and then when I went back where she was number one on the hot list, she was'n't there anymore. Where'd her discussion go from there. I just don't get it! Anyone?

Lots of discussions are started hourly and in ? time the top list are always updated, and what get a discussion into the top list is due to the activity it is receiving, like ratings, responses and comments it only lasts for a while you don't expect to be there on the list at all times when newer discussions are been updated to the list.

Thanks shynepapin. That is a very helpful explanation. I kind of figured it was that way but I just didn't realize mostly that there was a 24 hour period for the discussion to stay there. Pretty interesting.

I am sorry but I am new in my lot. What hot list are we talking about in here? is it on the discussion page or the one I see at the button of my interest list. And what does it mean?

Hi dazzledlady. Looks like you are doing well on mylot. Keep up the good work. There are tabs at the top of the page that say 'todays top, started, responded, friends started, hot, etc. When you hit any of these tabs you will find discussions listed pertaining to that tab. Hot list means which discussion is hot at this particular time and until someone else's is getting more responses in less time, the previous mylotter willl be in that spot. I just can't figure out where we go from there. Welcome!

Oh I see, I get it now. Just create another discussion that other people can relate to so that you will be back in the hot list. If it makes you happy seeing your name on the list. I also like making discussion where a lot of people can participate. It is more fun that way!

Well, you see dazzledlady. That is where people look for the discussions that have been responded to more. I know when someone looks at that page on 1st 2ndd or 3rd page, they will see my discussions if they are there and will consider responding to them. That's what we do on mylott is try to get as many responses as we can so that we can respond to those which earns for us. Plus we meet alot of FRIENDLY people. That's our extra plus! Have fun, You willl earn more the more you write. Keep up the good work!

The discussions on the 'hot' list stay there only 24 hours from when they were first posted. If you start a discussion and it receives a lot of activty, responses and/or comments and/or back and forth exchanges, it will gradually move up the list. Then when 24 hours have passed from the time that you first submitted it, it will vanish from the list no matter where it is and on which page it is. You can then find it on the other lists. Newer more recent topics will have been posted since you started yours and they will then appear on the hot list, 'Hot' in this case signifies 'busy' or 'active' and if you want your topic to appear there then you must keep it moving forward as soon as it receies responses after you post it, by commenting nack and getting users involved in it. Hope this helps

mysdianait, that is a super explanation with detail , nothing left out. I couldn't figure it out for the life of me, but now that makes all the sense in the world. You are always such alot of help and thorough. Thanks so much. Busy or active are good words to fully describe the life of a discussion there too. Couldn't have said it better myself, if I had even known it!

When you're hot, you're hot. When you're not, you're not. Just kidding. I hope you make it to the top hot list again. Its always good to know when you're hot or not.

I have been here for sometimes now but I have never bothered to check what type discussions are among the hot list. I usually just go straight to new discussion. Now since that I am aware, I will be checking the list.

Good Mashnn. You might find yourself on top of the list sometimes. The reason I like it is if others look at what's hot today and you are on there you will get more attention brought to your discussions. I think that list is very valuable to us. You'll enjoy using it and checking it out.

I think it will goes away to give others the chance to be on the hot list or on the top list of topics. I am sure where it goes, but I know it will disappear from the list :)

Yes angelgee, someone above mentioned to be that it stays on there in the place it is depending on whether or not it continues to be active and anyways after 24 hours, it will be removed from that list. Because it is no longer considered 'hot'! I think I said that right. Anyway, mysdianait explained it above in a response.

You were on the hot list because of the spirited conversation it caused. Then someone else started on that attracted a lot of replies placing them in the spot you were in, Just keep posting those interesting topics and you will make it up there again.

Sunset, I must say I love your avatar. Are those tulips? Tulips are my favorite flower. I bought a pot of red ones today. I wanted yellow, but they didn't look so hot. I may get some later. Thank you for the nice way you explained about the hot list. It makes someone feel good about themself.

hichrystaltears I think if I am not mistaken when I was on top of the hot list then moved off the only place I found my discussion was under the tab started. I know I was also on hot and stayed there for two days then was gone so must be they just put you back in your tab started, I think you could find the person's discussion simply by going back to her profile as our discussions are all listed on our profile.Now I am no authority gut I am thinking this would be where you would find it.

Hi Hatley. Two days would be about right or 24 hour period per mysdianit above. Yeah, it is just removed from the hot list after that and you can then see it on other lists. Yeah. It can be found in the profile too. Thanks.

There are different lists so I am not sure which one you are referring to. Do you mean the one in the mylot category, the hot discussion list itself, the top rated users, or just what?

Hi cowgirl. I am talking about the one on the tab at the top of the page that says hot along with the others that say started, responded, todays top, etc. The one where you are on that list when you have more responses depending on the time that topic started, I think. Thanks. Do you know which one I mean now?

competition is the part of life, one day you would be on the top and other day another one would be on the top. so don't get disappointed. just enjoy the competition. give tough competition to others n be again on top.that's the life funda. nice discussion.
