GREAT MYLOT FEATURE

There was no private messaging feature at the now defunct Bubblews site where I was a member from 2013 until its demise in 2015. - and that is something which its former members - including me would have loved. As a matter of fact whenever there was a post from the Bubblews admin about pleasant surprises to come - we hoped that private messaging would be a part of the package - along with increased pay of course. Unfortunately there were hints and many promises but very few came to fruition. When I became a member four months ago I was very happy to find that Mylot has this feature. Private messaging is what it is - private. Members can contact each other about matters not meant for public airing - and I think that is great.

It is a great feature for those who really enjoy private messaging. I have done it a few times but I really prefer to not private message on here. If I interact here I want to earn from it so doing that on posts is what I prefer. There are times when it is better to send a private message though.

Have we ever offered each other private massages? I can't remember.

Bubblews was the first site I encountered without Private Messsage boxes. Some things are not for the whole community to see.

Maybe it would have been added expense to set it up - but a PM feature is necessary.

It was something we kept asking for at Bubblews but we were ignored. So now we have a better place that seems to hear us!

so right. and one more thing i like about PM- you can actually converse in your own national language, or dialect. another one is the emojis when we make comments; lastly, there is not 'dislike' or thumb-down tag.

You know, I hadn't thought about those aspects - no dislike or thumb-down - and the fact that you can converse in your own language - great.

@Kandae11 it is, and you can converse with your sister @Freelanzer in your own language. i hope the thumb down won't be added anymore because it is disappointing if one has many dislikes in his discussions.

Yes, I appreciate this special feature on mylot platform that we could send a private message to our mylot friends. There may be some issues, which may not seem relevant to the discussion, in that case, it is safer and convenient to send PMs.

@Kandae11 Interestingly, I have observed that some of the members have disabled their message option.

@dpk262006 Really? Is that so? The only reason that I can think of why they would do that is if they were being harassed in some way.

I had started my writing stunts here in mylot. Then, I heard about Bubblews and turned out to be a bitter experience. It is still a good experience on that site.

Yes, it is a useful feature, lacking only in that an image cannot be attached...

@Kandae11 Although I imagine it could, like any other feature, be open to abuse - which is probably why the feature does not exist.

Depends on what the message was about I suppose.
