Hello mylotters , I have seen many peoples reporting the glitches about mylot as soon as it is occurred. I want to know why we all are so interested in reporting such matters? Does it show the real attachment of mylotters with mylot ? What do you feel about this? Do you think that it helps the admin to resolve the problems fastly? Please share your views and thoughts .

If people were really interested in reporting the glitches then they would/should use the "contact" link at the bottom of the page to report it directly to myLot. By starting multiple repeated topics about the same glitches over and over again day after day they are wasting their own and everyone else's time because those topics are deleted along with any earnings that they might have produced. If I find a glitch that myLot might be unaware of then I first check in a PM with another Lotter to make sure it is not just me experiencing it and then I report it directly, if others have not already done so. We have PMs for these events and it is there that we can ask others (as many do to me) if they have the same problem.

hi diana if baffles me that so many have said it helps all of us to do this when it states in the guidelines duplicate discussions will be deleted? surely they must realize that the people in admins are not total morons or idiots and give them some credit f or knowing glitches are there. the more discussions on the same can ony slow down admins from fixing things.

Hi Wonderboy I am agree with MysD above. It will not decrease or solve the problem. I guess users already have discussed about all glitches currently going on. So any more discussion related to it will be surely deleted by admin.... That means they already know about it, so we just need to wait for that day on which admin will solve all these... Anymore discussion related to it will only increase the admin's work of deletion discussions.

Hello akp , exactly. Posting repeated topics will be just a wastage of time. I think so many newbies are completely unaware about this and they are posting those ones again and again .

Hello sajeevking , I didn't mean that it is a bad thing. What I mean is that why people are so interested in it? I have seen many times that the same discussions are posted again and again. What do you think ?

hi mylotters are you not forgetting one thing,if too many discussions all the same all about the same glitch are here, mylot will delete most of them so how is that helpful to mylot? one discussion would have done the trick.surely you have read the guidelines where it says duplications in discussions will be deleted?

repeated discussion are everywhere not only about the glitches but about lots of things. many of them get deleted for sure that's why i hardly respond to those.

thewonderboy: Yes. we bring out the discussion so that other members are informed about the same and they need not spend too much time worrying about it. also another intention is to solve the glitches early. good day.

Hello ravisivan , yes I too think that it will catch the eyes of admin as well as the other users easily. But do you think that it is an effective way ?

Hello Boy, Even i also have seen whenever there is a glitch there is "n" number of discussions started about it.This shows we don't read discussions and start discussions of our own when we see some error here or we don't get an idea to start a new discussion.

Yes the 'n' tends to infinity always . Using mylot search can definitely reduce this problem, na ?

wb, this kind of reports will help others as well as admin to know about the issue, people create this kind of topics to know whether it is only for them or others also suffered with this kind of problems. But some times it is annoying while seeing same kind of topics again and again, some persons create the same topic without knowing other mylotter already created the topic. Most probably this kind of topics are deleted by admin.

Hello vidhya , just now I have seen yet another topic about the 'friendship approval issue'. As soon as I saw that discussion I want to know the opinion of mylotters about this. That is why I have started this topic! Do you feel anything wrong with this topic ?

There is nothing wrong in your topic, i think already some persons created topic about the friend request glitch problems, so this kind of repeated topic will be deleted by mylot, as well as your reputation will go low, if some of your topics are deleted here. So be careful while creating a new topic.

hi thewonderboy Many p eople also forget that only one of the discussions on the glitches will get posted, why? because most of us still are not reading the guidelines, the dos and do nots of making a discussion namely duplicate discussions will be guess what folks? deleted. so we must all enjoy seeing notifications telling us your discussion has been deleted for being a duplicate of umpty nine others. yes we all want the glitches taken care of but if 243,441 of us all post this same discussion about the glitches, admins will be so busy deleting discussions the glitches will not soon be remedied okay so I am being a bit silly here, but still after seeing all the other discussions I did not want to get mine deleted so did not add to it. admins does know they have glitches so why keep telling them over and over? its overkill folks.

Hello Hatley, Yes..I think you have explained it very clearly . Just a few minutes ago I saw yet another topic about the issue with friendship approval. So I decided to start this topic and to know the views of other mylotters about this .

Maybe this is completely wrong but yesterday I was one of those reporting a glitch. And my discussion was deleted without explanation. Although the same day I was relieved when I saw a discussion about another glitch and I learned that I was not alone having this trouble. I think that the discussions are the fastest way to understand an important news and so they are helpful. But to avoid multiple discussion on the same topic maybe it's good to have a special tab, named "myLot news" and go there when we want to get informed about all the important things here.

Hello fannitia, just like you one of the mylotter has also raised these kind of an idea. I too think that it is good to avoid multiple post about the same topic .

I think it's not about reporting, but complaining or sharing to other mylotters. That is why most of the topics that contain about glitches are likely to be deleted due to duplication...like what happened when mylot was down for few days. So many topics came up, not with same title but with almost same content... Maybe some mylotters are too excited to share what is happening or want to know who are experiencing the same...

The people are just keen to start new discussions about the glitches that exist exist over here. May be the people do not use mylot search. This might be the reason why they post the same problem at the same time.

Hello! When there is a glitch and I get errors, I would like to know if other users in the site have the same problem. So I think it's nice to report it and see if there is a general glitch on the system, or if it's just me! Also, administrators get noticed about the problems that we may face when logging in or when we're trying to post. That's why I think it's useful to discuss glitches, in my opinion it's both for the administrators and the users.

" I would like to know if other users in the site have the same problem. " We have Private Messages for that purpose and the "contact" link at the bottom of EVERY page to inform myLot os such issues. The discussion area is NOT the place and repeated topics are deleted causing no earnings for anyone who particpates in them.

Sure, but no one has ever sent me a pm to inform me about glitches and problems so far. I don't like seeing repeated discussions and posts either and I know that they are soon going to be deleted but I still read them and respond. Maybe there should be a seperate section where we would all be able to discuss about those matters and everything posted over there wouldn't participate in the calculation of the earnings.

"the more people will report it to the admin and the more faster it will be repaired" I doubt that the number of reports has any effect at all on how long it takes to repair an error.

Once it is noticed they will try their best to resolve it as soon as possible . Then creating discussions about the same is a wastage of time!

I still have glitches because under my profile it is not keeping log of the questions I answer and blogs I answer. I am trying to 5 a day and I like to look back in my profile to make sure they count. It keeps saying I have not answered any questions in last 60 days...which I have! Plus I have HTML links on my profile page I was hoping by now they would of came back... which they have not so I have to all those all over again they were not easy to do! I was hoping with upgrades and mylot power outage they would restore everything. I really hope they starting show wich blogs I answered and which questions I answered too! Thanks unique16

maybe they just want to share about this with other members so every user can be aware that my lot is having glitches and there is no need to worry about it it is good sometimes to share as ong as you don't complain about this

Hello thewonderboy I think people should report glitches if they come across them so that it can be fixed as soon as possible and not affect more people. It may not be resolved immediately as the moderators/developers of the site may be currently fixing other problems but they would be able to start investigating the problem once other work is done. Glitches can have a lot of major consequences if not fixed properly.

It helps us all enjoy our stay here. Who likes experiencing glitches here? I don't think there is one who does. So, we have to be thankful to all those who are reporting these glitches so we can all have a great stay here after admin as fixed it.
