Not Too Much Action Here These Days

Is it my perception only or is it slow these days on Mylot? I was hoping that with the demise of BB and PP, things would move faster here and we could have more content to read and comment on. It is difficult to keep interest when the action is so slow. Do you feel that way too?

It has been slow the last couple of days. I noticed the same thing the first couple of days in January and it makes me wonder if people push hard to get to the minimum cash out amount at the end of the month, and then take it easy for a couple of days at the beginning of the next month?

That sounds logical & probably the case why it seems slow at the beginning of each month

I don't change my behavior depending on time of the month. Maybe others do, though.

@TheHorse and @Marilynda1225 - I don't change my behavior either. However, it is possible that some people do. I just put in some time each evening, depending how much time I have.

I think it's very quiet. When I started I couldn't imagine running out of new posts that I wanted to read but now it happens quite often.

@mysdianait We each have our ways of doing things. I don't go looking for old posts.

@mysdianait Every time I have ever checked (and it's been several) it has been 10 within 350 either direction for 24 hours

I think all the main commenters are on holiday or something. That said I see @mysdianait and @JolietJake are both active at the moment. Today there seems to be no Indian or Filipinos present.

It is night in both of those countries right now. I have been slow for the past week indeed and I might be back now - though I don't start many new discussions as the few that I have keep me more than busy

@mysdianait I know that, but I wasn't meaning because of the time of day, I was meaning that the Indians and Filipinos seem quiet for the last couple of days.

I thought there might be as well. But I guess there are some days, when some are busier than others and can't log on here. Perhaps this is just one of those days.

It does not seem slow to me. It did a little during the holidays, but it picked up again thereafter.

Sometimes, our life is too busy to spend too much time here. It is very understandable.

Yes, and I know I haven't been on that much. When I am on, I look down through the recent posts and don't find a lot that I want to comment on.

I expected a greater influx of members after the demise of the other two sites, which started well but soon petered out. As for recently, OI cannot really comment on how busy it has been because I have spent less time online and the hotel wifi is seriously slow at times.

Plus the fact that you have to walk a lot more than usual before you can settle down and be online

I haven't seen a lot either, but hopefully, things will pick up in time, now that those form the sites that shut down deciide to come in here. We probably will be really jumping then, and we will be so busy, that we just won't be able to leave, and we will earn like crazy. I can only hope that it happens, as I love it here, and I don't mind being here either, but I do like to be kept busy, while here.

I'm also hoping that we get an influx of new people as the other places close

I have noticed that a lot of sites have been a bit slower the past few days. I think it is normal for online interest to wax and wane.

I agree, I often run out of posts I want to read. It was a lot busier in Oct/Nov.

I have found it very slow and have been forced to go off and do housework - which means it is very slow indeed.

I agree with you on that. What can we do about that? I think a lot of discussions don't make it into the "interesting" and "hot" and "most recent" categories though. I like trying to find new discussions but seem to only find the ones I have already responded to. Maybe you can search for tags on subjects that interest you, or look at some people's discussions and respond to them (by that I mean, people you are following). Otherwise, keep posting discussions and I will try to keep responding! LOL

All discussions go into the 'top rated' and 'hot' lists as soon as they are made and remain there for 24 hours. All posts show in descending order in 'most recent'.

I was thinking of the same thing. Because I just went to the "Most Recent" section, and I keep seeing the same Topics over and over again. It seems like there's not many people on tonight. Maybe it is me, but, I think Mylot is getting slow these days.

I joined only 3 days ago, thanks to @BelleStarr. I hail from Helium.com, Bubblews and PP. I really like this site. It's too early for me to comment much on the activity here, but I have noticed I had more earnings yesterday and the day before than I have had today.

Yes I completely agree with you. It kinda seems a class of strangers where people talk to those who they are acquainted with. It used to be more interactive back few years.
