MyLot: A discussion about old discussions

Malaysia
October 8, 2017 7:54am CST
Feeling nostalgic a little But actually feeling happy that my old discussions apparently haven't completely died, thanks to you awesome myLotters - seasoned and new members - who read and left your response/comments on my old discussions. I don't post too frequently compared to many members here. So when I revisited some of my old discussions recently, it kind of brought me back to certain moments - what I was doing at the time, what I was thinking (I mainly write about what crosses my mind when I feel like writing), etc. Most were good times. Do you read your older discussions? Or do you only visit them when you get likes/reponse/comment notifications?

I think I belong to the number 2 club. I don't really visit my old discussions not until some mylotter like/respond/ or comment and then the notifications reminded me.

I think most of us here are like that. Maybe it makes more sense to spend whatever time you have here posting new discussions and responding to active ones.

I read them when I have time. But usually my notifications take up most of my time. And I love to read new posts too, like yours now.

Yes I agree, a lot of our time here is spent on trying to keep up with the notifications. I guess I just felt like walking down the memory lane for a while, hence all the reminiscing.

Yes, at times when I don't have a new post to visit the members I followed. I scan through my old discussions and sometimes laugh or smile about it.

Nice to revisit old memories, isn't it? Reminds us of certain special occasions in our lives too.

I see It can be time consuming especially for those who have posted a lot of discussions.

I do go through my old discussions from time to time and realize that hardly any of the old members and friends are around.. however it brings back a lot of old memories

Aw, yeah I'm sure that's true for many senior myLotters who have been members here for many years. It can be pretty nostalgic.

I go back to my discussions when I have looking for a particular one I posted and need to find it.

Good that there's a search feature on the page that you can use to search for older discussions.

@cahaya1983 I go into my discussions under my name and check them out. I do not always find what looking for.

@Hannihar Maybe you can try to find them using the search feature next time. I found several of mine that way.

That is one way indeed of interacting with a myLotter who doesn't have new discussions anymore. I do that in order to convey the maker of the post that she is being missed. I must confess, I felt so happy whenever some of the myLotters here would comment on my older posts because I know they haven't been around. And this happens a lot of times last week, because I barely can make a new post already because I was busy at my work and my direct selling small time business. How are you? I think, I haven't seen you around or maybe when I am here, you aren't online.

That's a great way of maintaining connections here I try to do that too, if they don't post often I would sometimes go back to their previous discussions and read them. I'm doing well, thanks! I took quite a long break from myLot mainly because of my work, but hope I can be active here again. I hope you're doing well too!

@cahaya1983 let's try to be always here because it seems many have been so busy the past weeks that I cannot see most of them here now.

@SIMPLYD That's right, I noticed that too. I think they got busy with other things. It happens.

Oh oh, I just came back to this site and deleted about 40 of my old discussions. However I kept 22 because I feel that it could be an arena for sensible discussion (on issues). But i do agree with you. Revisiting old posts can and do bring back fond memories. I don't blame you. Sometimes when you write you leave a little piece of your mind / self. I am so busy right now that I visit when I get notification. And i try to visit a new person everyday...just to open up the horizon. Hopefully, I'll strike a happy balance!

Oh wow, 40 is quite many. Is there a specific reason for you to delete those 40 discussions? And I like your goal to visit a new member everyday. That's a great way to build new connections and also discover new discussions on myLot.

I don't read my old discussions . I go back only to answer a late response.

Nothing wrong with that Some of us can't spend too much time here and it probably makes more sense to interact on recent discussions.

I don't do that often either, sometimes I get triggered by the new discussions I read, or new comments.

Yeah sometimes the topics of new discussions that are similar to the topics I posted before made me check my older ones too.

Whenever I have time, I often tried re-read my old ones. (But I haven't got time lately .)

Me too, I hardly have the time to do that actually. I just happened to read a few of my older ones because they appeared on my notifications the other day.

I can't do it often either. Managing notifications already takes much of the time I spend here.

@cahaya1983 Interesting. I sometimes wonder how people find my old discussions. I have over 2000 discussions so I don't go looking at them. I know once in a while older posts show up on the side as well. I've never seen my own, because it's always what you might be interested in reading.

That's good. For many of us this is sort of like a diary and many members keep track of their progress in different things through their discussions. So yes in a way revisiting old discussions can help us think of ways to improve ourselves.

Yes and I think it's especially true for people who like to share about their life journey here...health, family and that sort of thing.
