I have noticed that I am less active now that I don't get notifications about the discussion and commebting progress in mylot! I figured it out through the earnings at first, since they gradually reduced and then I realised that I do not log in very often. I used to check my emails and respond most of the times through my smartphone, it was great because I could use my lot everywhere and it is really useful when I am stuck at waiting lines. It's more difficult to do that now because my screen is small and I can't browse through the discussions easily! So now I log in once a day through my laptop but I am not so organised! The notifications where a great help, I hope they will be back soon!

Your earnings will go away if you are not active on the site within 90 days. I make sure to at least do something every day here, although I haven't really been active here because I've been doing other things on the internet at the moment.

Hello! I am active almost every day but without the notifications it is more difficult to track the comments and responses so I am not as active as I used to be! I see my daily average dropping every day. However this is an important info that we should all have in mind. I've never been inactive for so long but I have read discussions of old members who come back after several months and wonder what happenned with their earnings.

I am back here after a long break. Well, I would say it is good to be back.

I think everyone is feeling that way. We are all ready for the notifications to be back in working order! I know my earnings have decreased as well and its making it hard to keep discussions going...

I'm with you, its different and difficult when you don't know who is responding and have to search forever to find it.

Exactly, it takes time to find the progress of the discussions and comments, while we could use that time for more productive purposes, like making comments and responding right away. I didn't realise that I was relying so much on the notifications until they stopped coming!

Yep it is one of those things you will notice, like you said, when your earnings drop. That's one huge set back about myLot at times that it doesn't update automatically. You don't know to compensate your activity until later, and, you don't know what to change!

That does sound like some great help for you on your smart phone. My earnings are almost the same, one day it was better than all month without the notifications, don't ask me how I am not sure. I hope they come back though because it is a lot more fun with them on.

I guess it depends on how much you were using them before. They worked for me as reminders to come back and be more active! They help me track everything faster and be more effective, especially during busy times. I am happy to hear that your progress is the same without them! This means that you keep up with your efforts without relying so much on the e-mails!

Well I started thinking and knew the notifications are not on. So I thought I just have to keep moving and keep responding. With that mind set I guess I did more than I expected to.

I used to rely on the email notifications to respond to discussions and keep track of my friends' activity! Now that I don't have them as reminders, I have to check everything from the website tabs I find it harder to keep up with everything and also the mobile browsing is not so easy from my small smartphone screen! I remember it had happened again during the summer (not sure though), and it was fixed after some time!

Mylot actually does decrease our earning if were not active for a long time. I have experienced that twice before. That's why I am being very much active now here on mylot. Because I have a lot lose now and I don't want to lose any single cent I earned in the past few weeks that I have been active again because I really worked hard for it I already set a goal for myself here and I intend to reach that soon. I don't really keep track of my activities here. I just enjoy and read as much as I want because I get confused somehow on my profile. The activity log is scrambled and not sorted according to the time and date I did a single discussion.

Is this happening, really? I haven't noticed that to be honest. I also try to cover all of my discussions and comments that have been commented back but it is time consuming without the emails. Especially at the responded tab. Thanks for the information, and the comment! I will definitely try to be more active now because I must adapt to the changes even if they are not convenient for me.

Here too i am not getting any notifications about new discussions, comments and responses, quite naturally our activity becomes less, earnings will suffer. Hope things will go right soon.

I hope so too. I am also not getting notifications for the deleted discussions, I think I got only one last week and today I was looking for a specific responded discussion which was obviously deleted but I wasn't warned through email.

I also notice that the notification seems stop. Notification is one of best thing for me to response any comments that reply back to my comments or post. I hope the notification will be back soon

Today I noticed that I didn't get notifications for 2 deleted discussions where I had commented either. I was interested in one of them and it was deleted without any warning. I rememebered that something was missing from my "responded" tab and managed ti confirm this from the profile page of my recent responces. The problem is that, without notifications for comments, deletion alerts and delayed earning updates, I have lost track of my progress completely!

I have faith too! I think that issues like this one are expected sometimes with all websites. However I believe that they should be fixed quickly because they affect the activity of most members in the community and this isn't good for mylot and for us.

Hi Sweety, I was busy and did not access mylot these days. I miss mylot so much. And I feel the same way. I don't get any notifications about the new discussions made by my friends. It is weird. Usually I get some emails everyday and just now I check the part" friend started", I found that there are many new discussions. I was wondering if there is something wrong with my settings. So thank you for telling me about that. I also hope they can recover soon. Have a nice day.

Hello sunshinesophie! I am not able to stay up to date either, however this is the section that I visit first when I log in. I check what my friends have posted and then I move on to the other discussions here. Have a great day too!

your earnings don't wait for more than 3 months. They are took off. Well if you come once in a while and take a look respond to one or two it will be grat. Well yes the notifications are giving a hard time to most of them, they are all upset with it. But i am sure mylot is doing it. I never use my notifications because i browse up all categories in entire day.

I can't stay away from mylot for more than a couple of days! I come back and participate in some discussions when I have time but not as much as I would like to! It is good to know that you are still doing well without the notifications, I think it depends on how you organise your activity here. If you didn't use them much before, I am sure that they won't make a big difference in your daily activity. For me, it is a big change because I was visiting the e-mails first and then other activities in mylot!

I know the notifications problem is very much affecting the working at myLot but all here are suffering from that and I hope it will be solved quickly. But you should be more active here to have effective earnings. I think you should buy a good smartphone with large display so that you can access myLot from anywhere. I hope to see you more around here in future. Good Luck

Thanks! I would like to have a better smartphone but the latest technology is very expensive for me. This one serves my needs well besides the difficulties when browsing the web. I always have to zoom in and move the screen to the right and then back to the left for each line I want to read! See you around, have a wonderful day!

Hi besweet. Yes, I think a lot of people feel like that. My participation is down. And discussions that I've responded to have only one comment in one discussion. I use notifications for almost everything. And those who make quite a few discussions must find it hard to keep track of responses. I noticed also that those who have commented and asked questions of the responder are not getting answers because the responders don't know about the comment. I responded to a whole bunch of discussions and it's too time consuming to go look at them all and then find there aren't any comments. So I stopped looking after going through about 15 discussions. This happened about 4-5 months ago, too. I stopped getting notified a few weeks ago. First it was a few missing notifications, then more, then I stopped getting any almost 2 weeks ago. It's discouraging.

I am not getting any notifications either. I have them activated for all option and I used to get notified for responses, friend's started discussions etc. It is hard to keep up with everything because now I don't have the option to respond immediately if I see the email when the response is posted. For example, I started this discussion last night and I would have seen some comments right after they were made, or this morning when I checked my e-mail. Instead of that, I was waiting till I come back home to log in and start responding. I first noticed it through my earnings, because my daily average was gradually reducing and I will not be able to reach the payout this month. I hope everyting comes back to normal soon!
