Mylot notifications. I do still have the ones about people responding to my discussions. I do still have the ones that tell me mylot deleted a response because the discussion was not valid. So, my friends, if I am slow responding to your discussions that is why. I have not gotten any notices about them. I will keep looking though, as I do not like just talking in my own discussions. I want to hear about you. I will also send GoAskAlice a PM.

I know, though it does give me time to work on my story, not having so many notifications coming at me, but then when I get an idea for a discussion starter, I don't because I know that it won't make it to my friends inbox for those who have my post's notifications on. I am surprised that you were able to sign in, because when I tried this morning, I couldn't. I guess we just have to wait until they fix the glitch..

I never sign out, so I did not have trouble getting in. Although Alex does not handle the IT end of things he has made the IT people aware because lots of us are complaining.

I am on my laptop and it is MINE and it is password protected, so I am the only one who uses it.

With me, I do not need to get notify that someone responded to my discussion because all I need to do is go on my unresolved or the ones I started. It is the ones where someone else started the discussion that I responded to and that they commented on that that I do not have as well. So I have to go and search for them on responded to because frankly i am a little bit nervous. The trouble is that the ones that I want to have feedback with, I do not get, and the ones that I would rather not have feedback with, I get. So I am between a rock and a hard place.

That is very ironic. I am glad that you found your way to my discussion, though. I can and do check around for things to respond to when I do not get notifications but I do not want my friends to think I am ignoring them. Now tomorrow and Saturday I will be gone most of the day.

Oh and part of the reason is that for mylot, I had to get an email address that does not include my name or part of it. Something like the nickname I have here on mylot. And since I used the Chrome browser for that and it freezes, in order to go to my mylot email I have to either go from my personal email that is on one browser or m writing email that is on my other browser and of course, my isp email has my own name as well.

I would be so confused by all of that. I have tried to sign up for Chrome and also I had occasion where I was supposed to go to IE, and both of them try to make me sign up for something called Inbox. I have not had time to figure that one out, or really the motivation, either.

I haven't had a chance to do much on myLot for a couple of days and I thought that was why I wasn't getting notifications. I tried to sign in sometime in the wee hours of the morning today but got an error and still didn't put two and two together! I hope they get everything straightened out soon.

I don't know. Has the population of myLot increased that much lately? I know Gather says that but I gave up on them. I shouldn't have said "sign in" because I do like you and stay signed in. I just meant "came here" I guess.

Maybe I was just late enough in the day that it was already resolved. I do have an error that pops us here now and again, but I was blaming my computer, not MyLot. I guess you never know for sure.

I can still received responses and even comments but new discussions and even mylot digest are gone. I hope they can still fix it, most of the time I'm working on my tab or in my phone and it is hard for me go back and forth the home page to search for a nice discussion. Sometimes my internet connection are slow in loading page too.

I think you and I are receiving about the same. MyLot has always been able to fix problems in the past so I hope it will.

So it is not just me. I keep checking things and respond to top discussions etc. I meet new friends that way. I do get notices when friends respond though, and I am glad of that. I would hate to leave you all hanging. Having a happy day and maybe we will get some stuff back soon.

You know that you can use the 'friends started 'tab to see which of your friends started new topics, right? I use the 'recent' tab as everything goes through there.

That's what I'm doing now. I already done my message to GAA yesterday and she said she will just tell her it to the tech, that's why I thought it will be fixed by now since they were gone for almost whole day for me and doing some fixing.

It has certainly slowed down the responses to my discussions that is for sure. Many people across the board are saying pretty much the same thing. Some people said that they had a hard time even logging in today. I do not ever log out on my laptop so I had no problem there. I wanted to work on here a lot today as I will be gone a lot the next few days but I will take what I can get as far as activity goes. I have some other stuff I have to do and my brain seems to have the same glitch that mylot does.

I got many notifications from mylot, but most of mine are deleted because the topics are deleted. it is not easy to avoid it. I used to be sad about it, but now, i feel ok. Everything will be fine...

With experience you will learn what is likely to be deleted. Yes, I still get those notices when they happen.

Yeah, it has been nearly a week now since I got a new discussion email. I have had to come into the site and search through the discussions tab. Which I never normally do. I normally do 100% of my responding straight from the email as I find it easier that way. Maybe they have no intention of fixing it? I would have thought that it would have been sorted by now! This is the longest running glitch that I can remember since I joined.

I am basically in the same boat with you. I do not have time today to go searching, just wanting to get some responses up to some of my discussions so that I do not fall too far behind. I am on another site that is claiming that their particular difficulty means they need a bigger server. I wonder if it is the same with MyLot. I hope when the dust settles we are back with an easier to use system. That connectedness on the site has been one of the things I have really loved.

You know I don't even use my notifications here anymore. I still get them, even get them in my inbox now instead of my mylot folder, I need to delete them out I guess. It's much easier for me to use the site itself then the notifications through my email. That's just me though, I hope it all sorts itself out, you think it could partially be your email client?

I have not seen you in a while. My email client--would that be Yahoo? I could suppose so but the problem is so widespread across the site, I would think it is a MyLot problem.

I didn't get any notifications all except once a day I would get the top questions of the day. Now I am getting the notifications when people respond to questions I have asked. I like that and I appreciate that a lot. I would not want a ton of notifications though. I usually just try to answer questions of people who answer mine.

This is my primary site, rather than Gather, so I would like to know if any of my friends start discussions. I also want them to know when I start discussions. It just is not happening consistently right now. You can turn your notifiers off if you want to.

I'm glad it's not just me. I haven't started any new discussion until today, but I've had no notifications since April 30, and those were to let me know I had new responses on some old discussions. I went to the top discussions today just to see if this topic had appeared, since I've learned now it's better to check first before starting a new discussion. I really rely on my notifications of new discussions, since that's how I keep up with certain people without going to the site. Some people post lots of discussions a day, and only some of them interest me enough to respond. I love being able to see the discussion topic from my email. Hope the notifications will work soon -- especially since I just started a discussion.
