When MyLot deletes bad posts, all the people that responded seem to loose their points too. Happens to me big time all the time. Today was awful, as it is still happening. I am only at 10,292. I should be much higher. Oh well.

I don’t have many points at the moment so would notice the loss of up to 128 point. I am also very picky on where I post, if the post looks controversial I won’t even bother to post.

I'm glad you didn't loose any points. Good idea, be choosy on your responses. I am going to start doing that more. But it could have been a lot of older ones from 2 months ago.

I'm glad you only lost that amount. I must have lost close to 300 or more up to this point.

Maybe it sounds a dumb question but from where can you check that you have losts points?

Your posts numbers are next to your name. It's in the ( ). Right now you are at 937. Each time you reply to a post, that number goes up.

Remember people leave and those points are lost. The discussions you answer could be deleted through no fault of your own. So far I have not noticed that I have lost any except one yesterday...that was from a double post and understandable. I keep track so I can say they haven't removed points from me. Watch what you answer and hope for the best!! Admire you 10000 points!!!

You are right when you say they delete bad posts and then you lose your points if you have posted in these discussions. I don't seem to have that much problem with it as I usually am responding to friend's posts and those that are interesting with reputable people. Happy birthday for yesterday....hope things are looking up for you....

Thank you dear, you are very kind. Still going through this trial, and trying to take it a day at a time, as it is so overwelming, I just fall apart, and that doesn't help. We had no food, and were hungry. Our church has helped us with that meanwhile.

Is this for real? Why loosing points? any reasons why we loose points? Actually, I've noticed it about once or twice already, I thought it was a bug.

Yes, I lost some too, but goodness, not 128!! That is quite a few points! Apparently they are pulling many, many discussions. I am trying to be more cautious as to which disscussions I reply. If the topic looks like any that violate the terms, then I don't reply. I reviewed the terms today and many of the very popular types of topics are actually not within the terms! I know I'm always safe with you topics though! I do hope you had a nice birthday!

I try to stay in the guide lines, but they remove anyone attatched to what they delete. My birthday actually was pretty sad. A lot of not happy things were going on. I cried a lot all day, and hurt my back. But, thanks for asking and your best wishes.

Not so far but my points seem to be constantly going up or down. If I was to lose 128 points in one day. I would ask myLot why then sulk until they explained

I did. They delete bad posts, and all the people that answered that post, loose rates too. Not fair, but that is what they do.

I haven't been keeping a check on mine, but I probably would have noticed if I had lost some. As a matter of fact, maybe I gained some, as I was watching a film on my pc and wasn't responding to many topics, and now I seem to have more than what I thought I should had. Some of MyLot must really be working hard on this site. Have the time we don't know whether we are coming or going. Hope you had a nice Birthday.

I have read about these points before. Call me a hick from the sticks, but I can't seem to find any points. Where are they? What do they mean? I'm sure I don't want to loose any either!

Okay I read the posts above mine. Now I get it. I thought that it was just the number of posts that you made in a day. What is the signifigance of them?

You have a rate of (969) It is the number next to your user name in ( ). Each time you answer a response, it goes up one. That is what I am talking about. That is how you get paid on your answers to posts.

I have noticed a slight fluctuation on occasion. I really don't keep that close of a watch on it. I am glad that the points you lost today weren't as bad as those that you experienced before. That was a freaky thing. Did you ever hear back from MyLot on this?

Yes, they said, "read the rules." I think they were deleting, and if you are attatched to the deletes, you loose too.

I do not think I have lost any this week, but I have not been on much. Started a second job a week ago, and it kindof put me down on my posting. I seem to fluctuate no mor than one up or down when mh points begin acting up. So sorry you lost so many. I guess it shows that you very actively respnd. Some years my birth day has been te pits. Hope that things turn better this yeqr.

You are so sweet. Good luck on your job. It wasn't really one of my best birthdays, a lot of sad things happened and I was crying all day. But, thanks for asking.

Yes I lost some points but 1 week ago... Since Today I made only 5 or 6 responds.. So I didn't lost them... Maybe will be good practice to all of us to thinking before responding.. Like old phrase says... First make sure to bake it then say it....

Yeh, you are right. I have a feeling this is from very old posts months ago.

I have not lost any points today or anytime recently actually. That is odd that you are losing so many points. I have not seen anything wrong with your posts or comments. Try not to reply to the topics that are comparison topics as that could be losing points from your rating.

I think it is old posts or not good questions I reponded to months ago. Glad you aren't loosing any.

I do not think that it is really having an effect on your earnings is it, I have lost points but it has not effected my earnings any. I was under the understanding that you lose when Mylot does a clean up of old discussions etc and it wipes out all the points from those discussions.

Yeah, I think I lost about 100 points that day no matter what I did. I even stayed away from yes and no posts. Still, that did not help me at all.
