Today myLot is showing that the population is 51,810

This is the first day of the year 2007 and when I joined a few weeks ago the population was just over 45,000. Wow the population of myLot is growing at a fantastic rate and I wish it well for more years to come. Do you remember what the population and date was when you joined?

When I joined about a month ago I think that there was around 41000 members so it is really shooting up. The increase of members can be a good think, but it can also be a bad thing. A lot of people who are coming in are looking to make a quick buck and will create a lot of posts that will bury the good discussions. Lets hope that the increase is a bunch of people who want to make myLot an even better site that it already is.

Mylot is certainly growing at a great rate of knotts. However, I don't think this is necessarily a good thing. I think it would be better if, in the same manner as Yahoo Answers, they regulated how many discussions each individual asks per day. That way, you wouldn't get so much rubbish put forward, and members would be able to get their teeth into the good discussions. Also, the discussion starters, would have more time to go back and make a good discussion out of each subject they put in. At the moment, a lot of discussions are meaningless, but similar-minded people respond to them with equally meaningless comments. They don't bother to go back and see what people have said in response, just go on asking question after meaningless question. Having said that, of course, there are some very worthwhile discussions started on here... like this one, which I, for one, don't mind spending time on, even if it does only award me with one point! lol. If the site regulated the number of discussions started, they would have more time to vet them, value them, and pay them according to interest and time put in, which I think would make for a better site. I'm ranting on again Deeeky. lol. Sorry, but you got me thinking about the congestion and the number of repeated, five-word discussions I've seen on here. I don't think it too fair that the meaningless discussions are awarded the same points as those which have been given some thought. I'll shutup now. Sorry... I digressed. :-)

I agree with your response and in time I think myLot will find a way to regulate the amount of discussions posted each day. They have recently upgraded the site so that you have to have 500 discussions before you are able to paste and post on to the site. Which I have noticed that it has helped from people from copying large files from other sites and pasting them onto our discussions, when all they need to do is give a brief description and then post a link so that we can see the whole article at our lesure. By limiting the amount to, for arguments sake ten per day, we could go back and post more comments to keep the thread going and make each dicussion more enjoyable to read and digest. It would be something like a congestion charge so to speak, lol MyLot is upgrading this site on a regular basis so I think it will improve for the best in 2007.

I hope so, Deeeky. Perhaps Mylot should occasionally star a discussion on our feelings about the operation of their site... or do they do that under a pseudonym already? (sorry, not sure of spelling there). lol. I'm sure they would receive a lot of good suggestions from some quarters. One of my friends suggested that we have a Top Ten Friends List, rather than people being able to tag you willy-nilly to be their friends. That also is a great idea, and you, for one, would be on mine. Your discussions are always good and you keep them going. Thank you, Deeeky. :-)
