Lots Of User Not Interacting Anymore

Do you find that a lot of Mylot users are not interacting so much anymore? I just wondered it they lost interest in Mylot or if they are too busy in real life? Have you noticed the same thing lately? There seems to be more new users, some of them writing a one liner and thinking that it is the way to do it. I am afraid that those users will not get too much attention. I hope that Mylot will pick up soon.

Actually, I have information from myLot that says about 240 people a day are active posters, and around 700 people a month total.

This is from a comment to me from myLotBugs yesterday: "Anywhere from 240-280 unique, active (posting) members per day over the last month or so. Roughly 700 unique, active (posting) members per month (not everybody is here every day)."

@JolietJake I never come here during the middle of the night even if I can't sleep.

Yes, I have noticed that many users do not dare to reply to the comments and this is pretty rude.

@LadyDuck if everyone would do what needs to be done they wouldn't have the problems they have in getting paid. not only that but they'd have better response action too.

The site has been less active for a few weeks now, although that could be incidental rather than lack of interest. I am probably one of the members who has become a little less interactive recently, which is due to the difficulty I have at times with my eyesight. Of course that should change once my eyesight issues are resolved.

I hope the work they do on your eyesight is truly beneficial.

In your case, it is quite understandable. Good luck for the surgery.

It certainly doesn't seem so busy as it was when I first got here from Bubblews. Then the site was really buzzing.

I think a lot of it might do with the nice weather in some part of the country. I have also noticed the one liners and hope they will write longer discussions instead of I am new here.

@Marcyaz I would put my bet on people are starting to get out of the house more now that the weather has changed & not as cold & enjoying them selves like I'm gonna be doing here in a few weeks from now

I can't say that I've noticed... I ususally stay within my small group of people I'm following .... like you... I'm not sure a 1 line post could produce much interaction....

there are a few one liners that MIGHT get attention, "Who are you voting for, and why them?" might, but for the most part I avoid posts like that

I have been working three jobs so that is why I cannot always comment as much as I want, and it always seems that the phone or something takes me away from mylot.

It does seem like there aren't as many users. It seems like some users have just left. Oh well ... whatever the reason, it's the way it is sometimes.

@dodo19 I think what it is that the weather has warmed up winter is gone & people are out enjoying the weather & enjoying life than sitting at home.

@amadeo I will be missing a lot more once it's nice out, especially when we open the pool. I've given up too much 'summer' over the years by being on sites like this instead of outside enjoying life.

I think it fluctuates but it isn't as busy as it used to be a few years ago. One thing I've noticed over the last few days is that there are members posting nice discussions and getting good responses but they don't get back to even a single person. I don't mean they get back to a few, they get back to nobody. Now, no matter how interesting their discussion, I don't respond to them.

@Mike197602 that is actually the fun part at least for me. To get back on here and go through my notifications and respond to those who have responded to my posts. Some responses I just like because I simply agree with what the person has responded but I will write a full response when it is expected.

@RasmaSandra yes, a like at least shows it's been read but I don't like it when there are no comments/likes on any responses and the discussion is a month old or so. Makes me not interested in getting back to those people.

May be they are busy in their lives. As far one liner comment or response I too write and I think it's okay unless it's relevant.

I meant a one liner "discussion" not for a comment or response (which is okay).

@marlina hmm discussion needs to be explanatory I think so I also feel that one should elaborate what he /she has in his/her mind.

@marlina well let's see. I am busy and right now haven't been here all week however when I come on I stay on to interact for awhile. Tonight here from Riga, Latvia I have been commenting and I have noticed that there are people who right away comment back. I guess it depends on how busy they are or the time or something.

It does seem that most sites have high usage at times and then the usage lags. A variety of reasons could be the cause.
