Why or how members can get the name of the site wrong. It's myLot folks, not Mylots or My Lot. It's typed in large green letters in the middle of every page. Please get it right. Thank you.

You are technically correct. But we're not very fussy or easily offended so we're not going to worry about the details of how an individual person writes it out.

Why not? There is the right way and wrong ways. I really enjoy this site and it pees me off when members are so offhand and I see it as disrespectful when people using the site and benefiting cannot even get the name right.

@MsTickle it's fine to think of "a site" what is a site anyway???? A thing right? But what about people? They don't count. Just things? Pees you off? I can get pee pee off tooooooooooooooooooooo!

I'm wondering about the origin of the name. I think it means "my people" but I would never have thought of that interpretation if I had not read Harry Potter and people kept saying "you lot" for "you people."

In the words of Crash, one of the original site mods: "A common definition of the noun "lot" is -- "a piece of land forming a part of a district, city, or other community." So the piece of land is our website, and the community is you guys, so... myLot = your community!"

@petatonicsca an interesting idea. I have wondered myself.

i've always written it as Mylot, but i know i never wrote it as Mylots or My Lot. i know others write 'the lot' or 'lotters', instead of 'mylot' or 'mylotters.' i've also seen mylottian/s back in the old mylot, which made me think of martians. i like that mylot is such a flexible word that i can even use it as a verb such as 'mylotting.'

@hereandthere I'm a member of myLot - not a lotter or any other silly (IMO) names. I would be royally peed off if someone, anyone, constantly spelled my name incorrectly.

@Bluedoll I am not aware of any spelling rules. Technically, the only letter capitalized is the L. Why? I don't know. Just to be "edgy" or unique I suppose.

Hmm well I know it is mylot but I never realized the L is capital. I have been a member for like 9 years and never knew that go figure!

There you go. it is not known 'why' except perhaps to make the name 'quirky' or to give the name an 'edge'.

@MsTickle I've been trying since I read your post to write myLot the correct way. Eventually I will get used to it and it will be second nature.

It doesn't really bother me. What does bother me is the pronunciation. Is it Lot as in hot, or low like the French would say? How myLot can you go?

@MsTickle I think you're getting confused with Merlot, a totally different thing.

@MsTickle I know the saying and always thought of it as a blessing. Who wants to know CRAP! The correct way is not always the correct way. Certainly I can agree with you about the correct spelling of a company name. But on this site people do write about lots and lots and also about lots calling it theirs. Go figure...

@Bluedoll I wonder why you responded in the first place seeing as how you don't care etc...?

I like to spell in right with the capital L in the middle, but I'm not going to get upset about it, one way or another. (unlike one of your commenters here).

People make mistakes. I can't catch every typo I make. Not even when I re-read what I wrote several times. I try to ignore typos when I know what someone is saying or trying to convey. As I make mistakes myself.

Normally it wouldn't worry me but as it's the name of the site we enjoy so much it just rubs me the wrong way. Obviously some people don't care but I do.

when i include the site in my comments, i use the gerund or the verb mylotting or lotting and i think everybody can understand that.

It can be the autocorect tied in with the brain thinking it typed correctly and not seeing what the autocorrect did. I know this as the autocorrect did it to me yesterday on a blog and I had to correct it after I published.
