If we start something like a pool or all the the things mentioned in the FAQs our discussions are deleted. English is not my native tongue but I see people writing things that I read it three times but can't understand, but how about those discussions started with things we can read like ur isntead of you're or u instead of you and etc, is it okay to talk like we are in a online chat? lol.

All we expect is that you do the best you can. We will not criticize you or remove your posts for bad English or spelling and members are not permitted to criticize you for it either. However, it would be good to use the proper words if you know them as you will likely get more activity in your discussions doing so.

Great response admin. I have to say though Happy Holidays to everyone and yes I agree. I know many people here that do not have good English, so it may be a little harder for them. :)

here in my coutry people who use such are usaully called jejemons.... instead of an hehehe, they write jejejeje. u for a you or, 3 for a letter e, they have their own language hard to understand whenever they post something, i always try to avoid such people whenever a friend request is made.

Hi Pen I would definatly not respond to a post with that language because I could not understand it..jejeje I have never heard or even read any place before... I think that U for you and ur for your is self explanatory. but some of that other stuff is certainly just not understandable to all here... I have received responses to my post sometimes that I just could not understand...I will respond with "sorry I just don't really understand what you are trying to say"..I don't intend to sound mesn but if I can't understand it, I just can't understand and I am not going to spend time trying to decipher it...

It reminds me of 7e7e7e in Arabic chat...or should I say 3arabi ;) Since I am trying to learn Arabic, it is interesting for me to decode Arabic chat and slang. It makes me feel like an "insider" or something!

I don't think it would be a problem unless you do it overboard. Things like "u" or "ur" are usually understandable. But there are many non-native speakers here. So it would probably be much easier if the words are properly typed out.

I have a hard time reading some of the discussion questions as well. That's usually due to poor sentence structure, though! As you are not a native speaker of English, if you would like to improve, it is fun to learn the slang and variations of the language. However, a lot of people (native and non-native speakers) find this type of typing annoying. So, even if it is allowed by Mylot, I'd stay away from it in discussions.

If we want to earn posting here it is said post a quality response or answer. I think quality is if your post would understand by the other members here that is why they respond to your post. I don't think that the would also understand your language. It is better put it to a test. Try to post one question write it on your own language then the following day check if there is additional earnings for your account. If so, then it is accepted.
