I dont like the changes to the order of discussions at the top of the page!

Before when you used to click on 'Discussions' it would go to 'recent discussions' now it goes to "todays top discussions" which I thought was good at first, but now it's annoying because they dont change very often, so I just see the same discussions. Then I gotta go click on the other link to get to recent discussions. And yes I know it's not really a big deal lol but when this site is running like a dog it's annoying!

The order of the discussions is not important to me though the website is very slow which can be annoying. I have no difficulty finding my way around on here but wish it was faster. I am sure Mylot is aware of the slowness and hope they will fix it.

yeah it is more the slowness that bothers me, its just with the change it makes it slower!

I agree. I like the fact that we have more choices, but I really don't want it to always to to the top discussions. I just wish it would always go to the recent discussions because chances are we have already responded to the top discussions. How can we get mylot to change things back? I know they've had a lot of bugs with all the changes, but I really hope it goes back to how it was before. I also hope they make it so that when we are done posting a response, that we go right back to the discussions. Anyone else with me on this one?

I agree :) Its nice to see the top discussions, but once I;ve replied to the ones that interest me...then I just keep seeing them over and over. At least the recent discussion list changes alot more

I'm usually very resistant to changes but I am doing quite well with this. It took me a bit to figure out that I wasn't looking at recent discussions anymore.lol. I usully go to my friends posts or my interests anyways. If I get bored then I go to the other ones. But I know what you mean about the slowness.

Anytime a site such as this makes such a change, there will be an adjustment period. However, without change comes no growth. I think you will find that if you give it some time you will get used to the new format.

this is true, but now discussions have more quality even if for me this is a little difficult because i don't understand everything in english and sometimes i can't reply for this

frankly, i prefer the current setting..hehe...cos i find that i easily lose out the discussions previously as they changed too fast (for example, if we are in page 5 and after we respond to that discussion, it will jumped to page 1..but now , it will stay at page 5) in that way, i could actually make sure that i respond to most of the discussions and not miss out any good one...sigh..i hope you get what im trying to say..cos i'm lost myself LOL

I will work out for the better, and as a result I think the site is actuall ymoving faster because it is not having to work as hard loading the different front pages for everyone anymore. Also as a few other have pointed out here, now you can more easily get back to a discussion without having to search for it.

I think it's annoying too. Always the same discussions on top, then you have to go back to the page you were at. If only, after a reply, they'd send you back to the page you were checking posts on.

I hate it as well! It took me half a day to realise why the topics weren't changing lmao I was thinking that Mylot must be erroring and was stuck on the topics! It was much better when it was set to recent discussions.

Okay just hang on a minute juicemilk while I get you the "soap box". Unfortunately there are some major changes going on and it will take a while till we get used to them, but it will happen and then we will wonder why we ever had this discussion. There are certainly some great improvements here at myLot and so with the extra money that they are going to be paying us, we will just have to put up with a little inconvenience. Also I suspect that there is a bit more activity here tonight while some members search to see which discussions were deleted etc. :) Cheer up because this one will soon be behind you. Right I have got you your soap box and now you can say what you think and nobody can stop you. LOL

I did not even notice until you posted this because I usually answer discussions my friends started. I was wondering where all the silly post went to though, now I know. Thanks :)

Since you put it out there, I was thinking the same thing but was going to give it another day or two before I said I did not like it thinking maybe it would speed up a bit.
