New myLot guidelines/rules to take effect beginning September 31st!
August 24, 2016 7:37am CST
Beware, for on September 31st, myLot is going to undertake a radical change in how discussions operate here. Some of the highlights include: A new originality checker Members will have to submit posts for verification of authenticity of originality before they will appear on the site. You will send a copy of your post to TheOriginOfTheWords.com where a dedicated team of intelligence-enhanced monkeys will carefully disassemble your post and verify that each letter and punctuation mark is not copied from another source. Upon verification, you will be sent a secret code by email or PM that you must then enter into the site for your submission to be visible to others here. Prawpurr speling is now a must! All posts submitted shall be checked by TheWorld'sLargestDictionary.com before being vetted. After viewing, the post shall be returned to the sender, and any and all words not found in the common English language shall be underlined in red. These words must be corrected, and the post resent to TheWorld'sLargestDictionary.com. Upon finally being vetted error-free, you shall receive a second code to supply in the designated area for your post to be visible to the rest of the community. You must now pay to post The first 25 cents generated by any and all posts will go to a fund created by myLot to pay Alex and everyone else. Any post making less than 25 cents will be charged to the member posting, and a succession of posts totaling more than $1 owed will result in temporary disablement of the account until such funds owed are remitted to myLot. First come, first served The first article concerning anything shall be the only article allowed on the subject. Any further articles pertaining to the same subject shall be summarily denied. This will limit the number of discussions available, but will create a better discussion in that everyone will be forced, under penalty of execution, to gather within the same discussion for further discourse on the subject. Any article promoting false information shall result in termination of the offender's account See you later.

You forgot to mention that, beginning on the 1st of Octobust and continuing through the end of Decembuary, there will be a huge cleanup operation and all of the new Guidelines will be applied in retrospect. This will, of course, mean that any user who has posted words, letters or punctuation marks which are not entirely original will be liable to fall under the axe. Re-application for membership will be entertained, provided that the applications are submitted either on birch bark in Cherokee or carved into stone blocks (no larger than 5" x 3", please, and with the correct postage) in Mayan glyphs.

How is the English spelling thingie going to work if I want to talk about Japanese TV shows where characters have Japanese names or some invented name that don't exist in the dictionary. WTF, Why I am taking this seriously when September 31 don't exist.

I guess I should wish you farewell? The English language will get me. The not completely true thing... well, you know that's it for you. I am still looking for that new calendar. I know I must have it somewhere... The thirteen months are so confusing...

@mommaj I've had the lead for quite some time, I just had to keep putting larger (and larger) clasps on the end because he kept breaking them and getting loose. And then he has broken the actual lead itself twice. There's a lot of PantherPower™ hiding in that boy

I accept this challenge.i hope there will be another set of new guidelines on February 30th so the whole community,no exceptions, will be given the privilege of posting pure original and English-written discussions. I will always remember too, not to misspell words, but how? "Common is MISTEAK to all, right"?

I must say this discussion drew me in, but my goodness, there are only 30 days in September, but hey, I did like the discussion, as it is hilarious. You really think of hilarious things to post in yoru discussions, and I hope that users havwen't fallen for any of it, as i haven't. at all. It is a funny post and that is all it is meant to be, so good for you, in coming up with something very original.
