Do you mean "Respond", "Like", "Tag", "Suggest" and "Report"? - the mysterious 'disappearing menu' at the bottom of each post! Respond is how you respond to (or comment on) a discussion Like is (rather obviously) how you show your approval of a post. It controls how discussions are displayed in the "Explore" menu and influences the "Top Rated" and "Hot" listings (when you 'Like' a post, the author is also notified). Tag is there so that you can add meaningful tags to a post, even without responding or commenting. Tags are VERY important in MyLot. They help people find posts on a particular topic and the tags that YOU use most often control what is displayed in the "Interesting" listing under "Explore". Suggest is an interesting and useful feature, somewhat like 'Share' in Facebook. It allows you to let other members (those who are following you) know about posts which you think they may find interesting. Report is the quickest way of alerting Admin to a post which you think is against the Community Guidelines. Spam, nonsense posts and flaming are very strictly moderated here and Admin relies to a certain extent on the rest of the users to keep the place neat and tidy. You shouldn't feel bad about reporting anything you feel is wrong ... all it does is to say "Hey, Admin! I think you should take a look at this!" I have published a brief Guide to MyLot but I don't think that I added these explanations yet. I shall do so next time I edit it!
