The Suggest Button..........

Regina, Saskatchewan
August 5, 2015 10:24pm CST
Just discovered that I can suggest my own discussions to my friends. I have to scroll through my whole friends list (don't remember it being SO many!) though and that's a bit of a pain. I rather miss the old way, wherein when a friends discussion was posted you got an email alert. It's going to take longer to get people to my discussions using the new system. Anyone know any short cuts? My fingers are getting arthritic!

I don't use the 'suggest' feature, I figure if people are interested they'll find my discussions under people/discussions at their leisure and respond. It seems most discussions I have received suggestions for are ones I probably wouldn't respond to anyway. I might use it to suggest discussions by other people to people I think might be interested in them, but that's as far as I would use it.

As always, you make sense. Good to know you can suggest other people's discussions too. I didn't realize that, but then it always takes me some time to suss out all the features of a new site.

I saw that Suggest and was curious so i suggested all my discussions to my people/followers..hahah..only 3 decided to come on over, the rest are ignoring me..hahah as usual...so since i'm not getting any notice unless someone suggests a discussion i search in explore or people..

Actually it was you suggesting a discussion to me that turned me on to that ability!

You will get that in the 'People' tab. I do not think we need that suggestion tab unless as you say we dig out our old posts and do that. Let me try.

I wasn't referring to old posts, but that's a thought as some of them were actually pretty good! lol

That does sound like kind of a pain though I didn't even realize we could suggest posts to our friends so I suppose that is a step in the right direction at least. I'll have to look into this and I'll let you know if I discover any shortcuts.

Thanks Glasser, I appreciate that. It's taking me some time to get used to all the changes on the new Lot. I really miss the old layout!

@sparkofinsanity there are a lot of things I miss from the old layout. I feel like it was so much easier to find discussions that interested me back in the day.

@sparkofinsanity I miss that ability, I never thought about it but I guess it did feel faster paced back in the old days. I'm getting use to this version of the site now but I still think it would be nice to have more options for browsing posts if nothing else.

I really don't think that I will use this feature. If people want to respond to me then they will find me somehow. I just have to learn this new Mylot one stage at a time but right now - no - it is not for me. I have to learn to upload pictures! lol

It's a cumbersome way to get your discussion noticed, that's for sure.
