Not getting points for posting discussions and responses today?

I've noticed that, along with the site running slowly, that I'm not getting any points for my responses or new discussions today. Is anyone else experiencing this? I understand that websites can have issues. I just hope we still get credited for our posts today at some point.

I would be really concerned if you only have points for half of your posts. Are you only counting new discussions and the first post to each discussion started by others? You don't get credit for posting more than once in any one discussion, just in case you didn't know. If that's not your issue, then I would email mylot and ask them about the discrepency. The only reason that I know of for not getting points is when a discussion you've responded to gets deleted. I also noticed yesterday that I don't get points for starting a new discussion unti someone has replied to it.

Sorry for typos :( Also, you don't "not get points for discussions being deleted", you lose the points WHEN they are deleted. Sorry for not being very clear on that.

When I say points I'm referring to the number in parenthesis to the right of our user name. Since I posted this topic, I haven't had the problem again. I've noticed that sometimes I don't seem to get a point when I post a response, but that it will "catch up" a few minutes later.

So far I haven't noticed this happening to me, but I did have to re-post to a topic four times the first time I tried to post on Mylot today. I've never had it happen like that before.. I just got kicked back to the topic page like I hadn't even attempted to post a reply. And Mylot was also running slowly again at first for me, like it seems to do more and more in the mornings here (central standard time) lately. But now it seems better. I hope that it's running better for everyone now! It seems to work a lot better the rest of the day after the most sluggish times in the morning, I've found.

The site was down for a couple of minutes this afternoon for maintenance. It's been much better ever since.

Blueskies, I'm not sure about responses, but I know you only get a point for you *first* comment on a given topic. I seem to remember reading somewhere that it's the same for responses, but don't quote me. (So, for example, if you respond to the same topic two different times, you'll only get a point for the first one - assuming this is correct!) Don't know if it helps in your case, but info is always a good thing! ~Sara

That's what I was talking about--the first post in a new discussion or first response to someone else's discussion. Since I posted this discussion, I have been getting the points as normal. I've also acquired 3 "random" points that must be from when I posted earlier today. By my calculations, I'm not only 2 points shy of where I should be.

The site is slow for me also. I had trouble posting a question last night and see this morning it didn't post. Last night, I would try to post and get error messages, so was wondering if the terrible weather is causing problems with the internet?

I don't know if it's the weather or something else. I just got a message saying the site was down for maintenance, but it's back already. Seems faster now, too.

I had the same problem this morning but it seems to be better tonight . I did up at least 10 that I noticed that I didn't get anything for . I was talking to a friend who quit doing it this morning because they were having the same problem also . I hope this doesn't happen to often .

I have been on here off and on all day, and I have not had a problem so far with getting my points to go up. It might just be running behind. Give it time. and good luck!!

Earlier this morning that was happening to me. But I thought it was just a glitch and the point would come back. Then on my third response I uploaded a photo and it did not upload nor did my response take. So I did it again and the same thing happened so I got out of the site until now. I only lost 3 points. Anytime that happens it is best to get just out for a few hours.

I did receive a credit for my previous days posting around mid-day, although I have noticed that the site is running a little slower than usual. Hopefully your credit has only been delayed and it will show up a little latter...SS

I wonder if this means another big change. Last week when I was having similar issues, like nothing but a reply box when entering a discussion, etc, later that day we had this whole new interface. Seems like something is always changing around here.

Oh wow, I just saw this post was from 4 weeks ago, lol. But it was running slow a bit earlier and then I saw this thread. Yikes. Thats my only excuse, : ).

My points for two responses got lost in cyberspyce once again yesterday. It happens to me every other week. It´s generally two or three points that won´t show up. I mostly post into my friends discussions and the posts where I lost points were not deleted. It´s really annoying when you´ve elaborated a nice, long response which simply doesn´t count. I´ve emailed the site about this issue a while ago, they replied that earnings are subject to change before payments were made. I don´t think they understood what I meant. Those points were lost and that´s it. Maybe everybody who loses points should contact them to get their attention. What do you think?
