Hello everyone, I just completed a whole week mylotting in my free time. But, can anyone tell me, why my mylot points went down from 126 to 121 around 2 hours ago. Is it because of the fact that yesterday I just posted something in a discussion which turned out to be wrong or There is any other reason ? Please let me know.

It is because some posts that you made were deleted and both your User Rating and your earnings were adjusted accordingly. If a discussion that you responded to is deleted, your response is also deleted, of course, and your user rating and earnings will be recalculated.

I also think that most probably your posts might have got deleted and that is one of the reason that your rating has gone down.

its because of several reasons 1) one of your discussions which you have started might got deleted 2) one of the discussion which you responded might have been deleted.

wrong wrong wrong do read the guidelines and the FAQ's too., only way that any ones rating goes down is if someone rates you minus for whatever reasons. our discussions and posts have nothing to do with the ratings system at all. we mylotters are the ones to rate our fellow my lotters plus or minus and some forget you are not to rate anyone minus just because they did not agree with you. you only rate minus if its an insulting or flaming post and does not contribute any thing to the my lot commubujty..

I think some of your posts or comments has deleted been by the owner. Try to check your email, everytime you have a response or any comments they will send you a notifications.

again both of you do read the guidelines as our ratings going up or down have nothing to do with our posts at all. we hlotters are asked to rate fellow mylotters on their posts plus if really good or minus only if it is insulting or flaming and does not contribute to the good of the mylot community. It has nthing to do with deleted posts at all.

deletion of discussions, responses and comments is done by mylot admin if they are guideline violations.

Hello Deepak sometimes discussions are deleted because they are not according to guidelines. If you wrote in one of this discussions, your response is also deleted. Then your earnings are recalculated. You can read the guidelines here http://www.mylot.com/o/guidelines.aspx DonĀ“t give up. Blessings Deepack... dainy

Yes this is because some of your posts/comments were deleted because the discussion to which they were responded too got deleted as they violated the guidelines of Mylot. This happens with all of us so be careful and try not to respond to the discussion which you think violate rules.

read the guidelines as our posts ha ve absolutely nothing to do with the rating system we m ylotters are asked to rate our fellow mylotters plus or minus or report but so many do not read the bit about noit givng a minus to anyone simply because you do not agree with them , this is only to be done if the post is flaming or insulting and does nothing t o help the mylot community.,It has nothing to do with our posts at all. read about the rating system in the guidelines and the FAQ;s first so you really know what you are talking about.

Hatley: Deepak is actually talking about the activity rating not about the reputation. Please read it again.

In addition, try to learn about how that activity rating goes up http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/2568225.aspx And then if your discussions/posts were deleted, just think the reverse of that.

maybe they deleted some of your posts or comments. I have not experienced this before but one of my posts regarding recipe is being deleted. I guess we need to read and understand myLot's terms and guidelines. I didn't know about it until i read them. And yes, no recipe is to be posted in myLot. It's ok Deepak2J . You are doing great. I am still new here and I hope to learn from you and the rest as well. I'm sure you can do it better and better.

I also think most probably it is because your discussions might have got deleted. I would suggest you to respond more quality discussions and good discussions and also to start discussions that gets more lines answer and this help you to increase your earnings and ranking.

I also experience the case, but until now I never know the cause. My star 9 come down be 8, whereas I never make a mistake, I think. Every day I active here, start discussion as well as make responses. I think it is difficult to determine what the cause except admin of mylot.

hi deepak the only people who touch your rating are your fellow mylotters.Someone or maybe two someones rated you negative. I am afraid so manyh here do not read the guidelines and the FAQ's to learn how the rating system works and too many forget we are not to rate anyone minus just because we do not agree with their opinion. only minus people if they are insulting in their post. but I would not worry too much over five points going down as others here will come along and soon rate you positive so your points will come back up and maybe even rise a bit. good luck happy mylotting.I seldom rate negative as if its that bad I instead report the post to the admins otherwise I do rate positive as we all are trying to do our best here.

Some Discussion just violates the guidelines. So, when they got deleted you lost your activity rating.
