Sometimes I have friends that just forget to comment on any of my discussions. Im thinking did they put me off notify or something? I only do that with a friend for a while myself if they do wayyyyyy to many discussions in each day like was going on a while back when people were taking advantage of a perk. Right after that I thought id put all back on notify until one of my friends commented on my discussion and I realised I hadnt been notified of their discussions lately. so I went and looked and sure enough Id missed re establishing them on my list. So see another good reason to comment in at least one of each friends discussions at least once every few days. thats what I like about mylot participation. and how good of friends you have.

I'm SO far behind on my notifications I'm probably not responding to folks everyday - and if you've turned me off - well, know that I might post 4 discussions in one day but I only do it about once a week... I probably have well over 800 notifications and I'm sure I won't be getting back to all of them.

It is good to check up on our friends. I had some e mail issues and a busy day yesterday, so I have quite a bit to look at and comment on. It is nice to have friends.

hibunnybon yes we all should be more aware of keeping in tou ch with our friends here even if we just comment on their discussions but a response too is better. I have not had the troubvle of getting notifications in email some have had. but stillhere on mylot there are some discussions that if you try to respoond you get nowhere. the response willnot post. now this one lady has only one response and I am sure she usually gets quite a few, i hope mylot can remedy this soon as I can imagine how she feels thinking perhaps my discussion must not be interesting enough.I have been driven to stay off of some who post 20 discussions in only an hour or so as I just cannot respond or comment to so many and still respond to all my other close friends here.I am proud of my friends who do respond to my discussions and bless them all.

i have 2 friends that i just respond to one or 2 of their discussions per day as they put out about 5 to 10 a day and ive seen times they do more. so i just pick and choose a couple. what i cant understand is how they think they can get back to all them. i mean ive just done way to many the last few days and as you see from how long its taken me to get back to this one, im asking myself, what ever possessed me!!

Hi bunnybon! I wish I could respond to a lot more discussions than what I'm able to do these days but I can't. Since my dad's passing last November, I've been really busy caring for my mom since she's severely disabilied and on SS. I'm at her place a lot more than my own anymore and so it's very hard to keep up with mylot although I do the best that I can. None of you, my dear friends are forgotten though! Trust me on that!

i have you on notify and you can bet i will comment when you get time for any discussions. I understand when a friend has no time to comment on mine but what i dont understand is the ones that have time to make dozens of discussions but no time to comment on friends or comment back. theres times when like you, i just have no time for mylotting but those times i make sure i dont make a ton of discussions i cant return to. anyway, sorry about all the things you have been through. i will keep you in my prayers and you have always done right by me so it wasnt yourself i referred to. bless you girl.

I try to keep up with all my friends' discussions, but there are times that I can't answer them all either. As far as mine, I understand my friends can't respond to all of mine either but if they are super active, it does make me wonder what I am doing wrong if they never answer any of mine. I love the participation and my friends here too.

hi bunnybon, sometimes I just need time till I can answer discussions. I have almost all friends with notify on and am wading through looots of notifications right now. As I have today, Monday, off I can answer as early as this but normally you would have to wait till next weekend when I have online time again or even longer. Hope that doesnt make me a bad friend in your eyes.

oh no never. i didnt mean that all my friends need to comment on all mine. i just meant that i try and comment on at least one of my friends discussions once a week if im stuck for time. but i have some friends (not you) that about never comments on mine ever and i do theirs. one of my friends dont comment until i stop commenting on their i guess to let me see they are still here? and miss my comments

oh my, am I glad that I am not the culprit. I had such a backlog that I was working on it Friday, Saturday, Sunday and even part of Monday. Other offline things are now left undone including snail mail....... the only chore I managed apart from getting some order into the mails was doing a batch of ironing.

I keep all my friends on notify all the time. I know I get lots of emails, but I do check all of them and only respond to the ones that I find interesting. It does take some time to get through the emails, but I don't mind. I am playing catch up right now. I try and chop away a little each day. I check my notifications every once in a while to make sure they are still active.

yes after the big push on people making more by more discussions that one time back, i just thought id take them off a couple days. but i guess i missed a couple friends. i usually always keep all mine on notify also cause i figure why have friends if you arent interested in what they post so, yes they are all on. problem next has been having to go to the site here for a week last time i wasnt getting any notifies.

Hi Bon, I've been skipping discussions I can't think of a reply to as I am in catch up mode. I've been more than a week behind for a long time and now I'm slowly catching up. However, next week I will be away from the computer for the best part of 3 days so I will get behind again. Many of my friends don't post discussions often, thank goodness so the number of alerts I have in my email are only ever about 100, at least that's when I'm in catch up mode.

good for you girl. at least you very much try and i cant remember when you had a discussion of your own. but you always come thru for me. and good thing you havent got a couple friends i do that make tons. ive done way to many this past week myself. sorry. im still catching up

For me, it is honestly my goal to respond to each and every discussion that my friends have started. But, I will also admit that there are some times that I miss responding to some discussions that people have started because of the fact that there are times that life outside of the computer really gets in the way. However, when I do miss responding to discussions that friends have started, then I will try to make up for it by responding new discussions that they've started.

oh i know you really do a great job with your friends Dora, because even when you miss one, it seems like way after that ones been forgotten, you go back and comment you are quite the perfect friend on here and hardly ever do much discussion starting.

Hi bunnybon, I only have some people on notification. If I had everyone I'd have way too many emails daily and that would drive me crazy. I come here to check in and usually see everyone's discussions. If I have time I'll post a comment and move on to the next. Mylot is a fun place to come and chat and see what's happening all over the world.
@bunnybon7 (36431)

yes if i had all my friends off notify though i would have to stay on mylot and read their discussions each to decide what to comment on. where i can check through other things in my email at the same time and see if i need to comment on some each day.

Hi, bon....For a while there I wasn't receiving notifications. And then I broke my left wrist and it was pain to try to type and when I did try, I was having to do the hunt and peck with my one hand. It's still somewhat difficult with the cast but it's better. I haven't taken anyone off notivication but some days I wished I had. I also rate the maximum amout when I'm at myLot. I think a lot of people are forgetting to do this. I think that this is also an obligation you have to your friends.

oh yes. but not if you have a big problem like that. so sorry. i hope your wrist is in good shape by now. if not, take your time. i did after my big surgery. i only took a few people off the other day and glad one posted on my discussion or id have forgot to put her/ and them back on. but that was because they were getting carried away with putting on to many discussions. and now ive goofed and made way to many myself

I'm one of those who is not receiving notifications. I haven't received any for quite awhile now. I was getting them sporadically for awhile, then none at all. I come in here and check under "discussions" but sometimes I can't get through all of them and miss some of those my friends have written. I'm sorry! I hope they get this little glitch (this HUGE glitch to some of us) fixed one of these days. Sometimes, though, I can't even log on here for a day or two because of other things happening and that will be happening again VERY soon. My son's partner is one centimeter dialated (as of yesterday) and will probably be giving birth within the week so I'll be VERY busy, being the grandma who lives the closest to them. Naturally, I'll be helping out as much as I can once the new mom is home from the hospital. So, if you or anyone notices that I've disappeared for awhile, that would most likely be the reason. And I apologize in advance for missing some discussions. However, I hope to be able to get online from the hospital when the big event is taking place to let everyone know.

I turn my notifications off when I am going away for a long period, because I have many friends and I would drown in notifications if I am unable to check my email for a month or two months. When I am at home I am usually online every day and I am able to check the notifications daily. Some of my notifications are turned on and some of them are turned off. I don't respond to all of my friends' discussions, I only respond if I feel that I know something about the topic. Sometimes I just read the discussions without responding. I am have some good friends who often respond to my discussions and I always appreciate that

thats one of the times i turn my notifies off to if i know im going to be away. OR if some, like happened that day was getting carried away because of the extra money promise. there was only a few of my friends over working it so i just turned them off for a couple days. then put them back on notify. unfortunately i missed a couple and when they replied on my discussion i realised it. thats why i say another good reason to comment on friends. it helps me to remember i havent seen a discussion from them. so i recheck the notifies.

I don't get notifications anymore. Haven't for two-three months now. I have to do it all manually so if I don't answer yours right away I'm living life or just not into Mylot right now. I can usually depend on certain mylot friends to answer all my discussions. I am glad I have these friends.

me also. glad to have you and i try and get to all my friends at least once or twice a week to find anything they post is something i can answer or comment on. problem with me is trying to get back to respond to my discussions and as you see ive made way to many recently and having trouble catching up. thats why i wonder how some people ever think they will get time to do their friends right by responding to their comments. I could kick my own butt for getting this carried away as to make so many discussions it takes me this long to get back to. but i promise, i will get back to them all eventually, unless i miss a notify. im glad for my friends to.

I comment on my friends stuff and they comment on mine. If I put up a lot of discussions i don't expect anyone to comment on everyone, but I just like to have a regular readership and I response in kind. I think of you as a friend and not just a name on the screen. We have been together so to speak for many years now.

oh yes certainly! and you always have ones with substance. them few days tho you done a lot more of them and i know why. cant really blame you. and i do like you i just answer some i have time for. and as you can see, i over done it this time cause i took a spell of "cant shut up!" so its taking time to catch up as you see.
