Mylot said that I wasn't a Member!

I forget how long, but for around 10 days I was unable to log on to Mylot. There was a brief point where I got on for a few hours but was then barred. I did all the usual things to connect to Mylot and contacted admin numerous times too. I received help from a Mylotter who also contacted Mylot and was just about to start a flamewhen I was able to get on. What a relief. I was feeling like I did when, many years ago, the US denied me a Visitor's Visabut that is another hilarious story. Have you ever had an experience with Mylot like this? So glad to be back and will try to play catch up over the next few days. I really missed checking in and was wondering what was going on in your lives. Thanks Mylot for taking me back!

OH, cynthiann...that would "knock me for a loop!" I would first be second guessing myself..WHAT HAVE I DONE??? Even tho' I have had this computer for 6 years, I am NOT a techie...and still face challenges navigating thru many facets of this cyber world! It still scares me. And like you, I live on an Island, an island very bereft of services like technical ones..so if I screw up my computer, the price of ferrying a techie from a Metropolis, I think would be about the cost of a new computer! I had a horrendous experience last spring, when I applied for my pensions! Even though my birth certificate was issued by the British Columbia (Provincial) government...the Federal Government (Canada) had the date of my birth wrong..and I had to move heaven and earth/am still fighting a battle with them..AND THEY ARE WRONG! If myLot did that to me...I think I would be like the groundhog that signifies spring, and crawl back in my hole.... It is so sad, that Admin has not seen fit to respond to you! Take care!

Your story sounds so much worse than mine. BeaurocraCannot your politcial representative help? Get all the help you can to get this problem solved. I did feel a bit of an outcast and discombobulated actually - wondering what I had done wrong I don'y so mind mylot admin not responding really as getting onto to mylot is what matters. Keep me updated on what is happening with you and contact everyone - Mayor, Councillors, Senator,- anyone but get help. What about your local newspaper?

It was published but I think that I only have a hard copy. Okay - I will re read and greatly condense but it is quite a story. Many thanks for your help but I am sorry that we did not keep the discussion going. It was so funny

Yes, it was funny - in retrospect of course. Then the US Embassy played a trick on me when I turned up for the interview but I got to have the very rare (for me) last word. And yes, I got the Visa.

Oh my gosh, that's terrible! I hope this wasn't recently, right? It's great you had someone help you out with this. Did they tell you what the problem was that started all this? How completely crazy. We sure do have some wild glitches here, but yours is a new one to me. Glad you're back here safe and sound.

Nope. Not even an email to say what the problem was. I felt so excluded as I could not contact anyone apart from admin. But I do have the emails offline ofa friend who helped me. I am glad to be back . I just hope that it wasn't something that I said

I could well imagine your concern! I would have been climbing up the walls, haha! I'm 100$ positive it was nothing you said. I've seen your discussions before and your responses and comments over time. I think you're one of the nicest people here on myLot, so I couldn't even imagine it was something you said. I think myLot just had quite a few glitches over the past few days, as well as a couple of weeks ago. I hope it's all good now for everyone. I know the Lamb had some problems too today. Glad you're back and all is well.

I don't think I've ever had any experience like this with myLot. I think that if that ever happened to me, I wouldn't know what to do. I wouldn't be able to ask other myLotters for help because I don't have their personal email address. If ever, I guess I'd just keep on logging in, until whatever issue is going on, gets resolved. Welcome back!

But I couldn't get on as my user name and password was rejected so I was out in the cold. I do have a few emails and this helped me get Dawn into action. I have just gone onto FB. My GD put me on but am wondering around like a lost sheep until I get the hang of it. A few mylotters are there that I know so you could link up with us if you wanted. I will email you my name and addy so if you do get stuck we will rally around

I am glad you are back in here. It must be mixed feelings going through your head. I am also happy to hear it was a myLotter who helped, which shows how friendly the community is. You have so many posts already, it should be the rest of us playing catch-up with you instead. You spur us on too. Thanks for sharing so that if ever it happens to us (which none of us would hope to), we know there is help around.

I guess there was some crazy stuff going on for awhile on Mylot. People getting emails that they shouldn't be getting and all manner of oddities. I know they did close the site for repairs at one point. I have just had the notifications switched on and off on me occasionally. That is all.
@cynthiann (18619)

Don't even mention notifications as it is 15 months at least since I received any!! Can you imagine how hard it is to look back for a response to a discussion I made? I often even forget which discussion that I have responded toIt's a nightmare

I sure can imagine it!! I had to do so for several months. It is like Mylot just decides to take it off and then put it back. It helped me to go to Gmail instead of Yahoo. I hate not having them. Having to check back mannually and the responses aren't in any good order. Ugh!

The point being that I am easily confused and really don't need this. I don't know what you mean when yhou said you went to gmail. I do have a gmail account. Do I add this somewhere? I really don't mean to be trying but I just don't know what to do. Any help would be appreciated

It has never happened to me coz I just leave my Mylot account open all the time. And if you did have some difficulties logging in before, maybe it was also at the same time that Mylot was fixing some glitches.

What I meant was, I never log out my Mylot account but I turn off my laptop after i used it. So when I turn it on the following morning, I do not need to type in my username and password.

Feeling unwanted or not good enough is not a good place to be. This was exactly what I felt when the US refused me a Visa. I kept saying to my husband 'Well, what is wromng woith me?. Then he made me mad by walking around singing the old song, 'How does it feel to be all alone? Like a great unknown'?
