How many myLot followers can I tag in one post
May 12, 2016 2:14am CST
Hello there everyone - I am not sure if there is any rule on how many people I can tag in one post, but I would like to know if there is a limit before I do my next post? Any information will be appreciated as I dont want to break the rules!! “It is a very sad thing that nowadays there is so little useless information.” ~ Oscar Wilde

The Community Guidelines say that we should not create: "New discussions directed towards only one or a small group of other members - You should use private messaging to chat back and forth with your myLot friends." The 'Suggest' option was removed from our own discussions some time ago in order to prevent people from spamming their followers with their own discussions. 'Mentioning' people in discussions (by using the '@' symbol before their usernames) will occasionally be allowed in certain specific circumstances but, as a general rule, you should not do it at all, particularly if the discussion is addressed to one or more people only or mainly. If you do so, your discussion is very likely to be removed.

It is a shame as I am sure you are not trying to do this with any misappropriation. similarly with Janet's post That too is not with intention of defrauding but making an excellent post she has shared with the community. IN fact I have found it quite fascinating being able to identify those she has penned about.

You really shouldn't 'tag' people in posts. You can mention people, but 'tagging' to bring them to your post isn't really proper etiquette. If the people are part of the discussion subject, mentioning them would be okay. At least that is how I have understood it. You should really send a PM to @GoAskAlice to inquire about the official position.
