I see the following categories of myLotters here - Brand new members who were not here before nor have they come from 'there' I wonder how they came to know about this site. Were you responsible to introduce them here? - New members who have come from there. Wonder who brought them here. - Then we have those myLotters who left myLot and joined there and have now returned probably with the same ID. - We have those who deleted their myLot account joined there and have now got a new one - We have those who left, never joined there but have now returned. - There is yet another category who were at the other place with a different ID and have now returned with their old myLot ID. I am one of them. - There are many more who have yet to return Which category do you belong?

Sorry, but I'm inclined to agree with @boiboing below. Some of us have been around a long time, myself ten or eleven years, floating between sites, and you see the many of the same people everywhere.

So you are in a category that thinks it does not matter.

@allknowing I should have added, I hate being categorised, I work hard at avoiding it

Should I add that category then I may add that it was just for fun and nothing else and a bit more interesting than someone asking whether you like coffee or tea

I am in the category new members who came from there. I have heard about the site from old members (Diana, Katerina, SimplyD), the one who encouraged me to join as soon as the site was rebooted is my friend @SIMPLYD.

I have seen you elsewhere too but here I see you as one of the most sought after I joined morachat when myLot became an empty field. I joined at the other site only a year later.

I had a different ID there. As a matter of fact I have different IDs elsewhere too.

I'm not sure which category this would be in but a connection I made on Gather.com talked me into joining back in 2011 but I was very new at the whole writing scene so mylot confused me and I didn't do anything here. Then, recently a friend I'd made over these last few years invited me to join which is when I found out I was already a member, I'd forgotten all about joining here in 2011.

You could perhaps fit into those who have returned. But did you find your account or did you have to register again?

When I tried to register the site told me that my email was already in use @allknowing so I simply logged in.

I was there at around the same time too. Strange that we never met then or did we that I do not remember now?

I am from the brand new group and to be more accurate I've never "used" a site like myLot or you know ... 'there', I just came to find that this place is fun and it's easy to find interesting topics for all to talk.

Welcome to myLot. I visited your profile and notice that your first post is about politics. I am not one that enjoys that topic but see there are many there to talk about it. I suggest that you read through guidelines which you will find under the help tab on any page on the top left corner. That will help you navigate here better.

I belong in the same category as you do. I changed my username to Koalemos when I moved from here and have now returned to my old account under the name of Asylum.

I have different IDs at different places. And must say that has not stopped anyone from making friends with me.

@allknowing I have only ever used the two usernames, with Asylum here and Koalemos for every site afterwards.

When the websites I wrote for closed, a friend mentioned MyLot so here I am. I have not been here before. It is spreading by word of mouth.

I was here, went there, used a different name, and am here under my old name. But, these days the same group of people tend to migrate together, so we've all been to many of the same places.

Unless my memory is failing me why is it that I feel that we did not meet in the old myLot? Never mind. Here we are now catching up.
