~MyLot Is Boring!~

Jacksonville, Florida
December 11, 2015 3:55pm CST
I was on another site, just looking around and a few people on there were saying that MyLot is boring! I know we are all entitled to our own opinions and our opinions are welcome everywhere. I was just surprised because I haven't heard anyone else say that before. I love this site so much and I find it to be fun, I cannot imagine anyone else not liking it. Too each their own I suppose...

@jaboUK I don't understand people that get bored so easily. I'm easily entertained I guess. Lol.

I always told my kids that the comment "I'm bored" just tells me they have not furnished their brain with enough to think about. Like other complainers, they can just leave.

It can be boring at times if youre just relying on recent discussions...it does have slightly slower times. That being said you can hunt out discussions where there are people active. Also, its still picking up members each day so I think it will become busier as time goes on. At the moment it is not boring for me as i'm looking around to find old friends from the old site.

yes you are right, at times I myself find it boring when I spend time replying to comments and and don't get reply until the next day. Sometimes I find it hard to find a discussion in which I can participate and have something to add. I have been told by a member that in the month of December and April mylot is rather slow as compared to other months of the year. For the last couple of days, I am feeling it slow. May be because people are busy in Christmas preparations, and not having enough time to spend here. I have joined few days ago and I don't believe that mylot is boring except the last couple of days.

@mike197602 Yeah there are plenty of discussions to choose from in order for it not to be slow. They also said earnings are too slow here, maybe their boredom got in the way of them earning?

I don't believe that myLot is boing at all, however I do find that it doesn't fulfill a particular "need" or "interest" that I've developed a taste for on other site(s). There are some minor differences of course in style but they just take some getting used to, but largely for me it's a matter of subject matter. But quite honestly, myLot is about whatever people want to talk about, so I can't say that is necessarily true either, rather that most communications are more superficial than I'm used to I guess. So I can understand some of their perspectives possibly. But no one is holding anyone to a single site, and there are plenty of forums out there that can fill this need that some of us might have. Ultimately, it just sounds like pretty petty talk to me. But there's hope even for the hopeless...I speak for experience! I dunno, that may not be what you wanted to hear, but it's my honest opinion.

Very good question, @HanVanMeegerin. I see that many seem to avoid mentioning names, and others seem as if they couldn't care less. So I've always tried to tend toward the former group, but when asked directly I belong to the latter! So the answer to your question is principally WebAnswers (WA). Why did I like WA, well I could say the pay was incredible. I just did the math yesterday after discussing a related topic with a friend from the site, and I realized that I pretty much managed to make just shy of $1.00 per post. Yes, that seems incredible, and I'm not one to brag to anyone but the occasional woman that I'm trying to impress (just kidding)! But I had between 2000 and 4000 posts which includes EVERYTHING...questions/answers/comments and so forth. I calculated from my bank statements that I almost made two grand over four years. OK, That's really just meaningless as far as I'm concerned....it's not a paycheck (as far as I'm concerned...though it could be to some people obviously!) And by the way, I sincerely doubt many people make that much at the site relatively speaking. It is very particular about spelling, grammar, punctuation, keywords and so on. I write very long response, though they swear that "size doesn't matter" And I also found my niche...In the science department, since very thing is(was)categorized there. BUT WA is presently a no win game. It's been circling the drain for quite a number of months now...maybe half of a year. As in the owners seem to think it's worthless. If I'm making as much as I was making and they took 40% of that plus made money from various other related programs to some degree, and I was not a volume-poster (Thee are people that write FAR better than I and have tens of thousands of posts!) How can it be a business that's barely able to sustain itself? I liked it because I could ask a question that I wanted to know the answer to and I knew who had intellect and who was a fly-by-nighter from my experience on the site. I could also pose topics that drew lots of people like things that hit a nerve. I remember one post in particular that I asked something like "Aren't atheists savages since they can do whatever they like without having to fear God!?" I couldn't stop people from writing whole page passionate (and some angry) answers! I let them know that it was but a question, not MY OPINION - I'm an atheist myself! But I learned a LOT from the discussions, like how many atheists/agnostics/nihilists honor the golden rule. Probably 95% of the 30-40 responses included an answer that at least indirectly said this. But I could ask a math problem or riddle and people were all over it! I could ask about quantum physics and the nature of time and people were quite interested on the matter. Here..I think I would probably receive a reply or two, maybe a few more from a friend! I'm not huge on small talk, myself....sa you can probably surmise from my present comment! I like to think and use my time pondering deep matters. That...I sincerely miss. But I'll probably be posting these type of discussions anyway...if people never reply, I can talk to myself I guess LOL! Again...WA is presently all but gone...and you can't make any money off of it in it's present state, so I'm not poaching anyone or anything....Don't go there, trust me. Maybe one day things will change, but I doubt it for reasons I am not fully aware of but also are too complicated to get into!

@ataboy I appreciate your opinion on this discussion actually. I don't agree with people being superficial here, I have found many genuine people here that feel more like family than anything else. Again, that's a matter of opinion I suppose. There are so many topics here, I just don't see how someone can't find some they are interested in.

@JakeOmatic You know, a simple solution to the perceived lack of value here on myLot would be for you to create the sort of discussions that you'd like to participate in...

Anything could be boring. Usually when people say that they actually mean they are bored. I wonder why they felt that way but I think it has little to do with the site. How can so many people all be boring at the same time?

It's slower here and the site isn't as attractive as bubblews was. But was is the outward appearance worth if the core is rotten? I prefer reliability to Arvind's spiel.

Well, if you compare it to Bubblews 2 years ago, it is slower here. On the other hand, it isn't bad all things considered. I am enjoying it here.

You know why this happens? Because many people think about money first. Mistake! We, members of this wonderful site, have to see Mylot, as it was almost a social network. Do you think in the same way?

For someone who love heavy discussion, I think mylot too boring for them. Yes, here, we just talk about simple discussion around of daily activities or common problem in our life. We can force someone to love this community which it does not suit for them. But, personally, i love mylot. I do not like make a heavy discussion here...
