I have noticed this many times that when i refer ppl here,a problem comes when they try to register!!!!! When they fill in desired name,it says that INVALID NAME...... so they feel bored to try diff combinations a dozen of times and to not register......... Have u faced this.......is there a problem in the number of names mylot offers.....like a "." or "_".......

my referrals haven't been experiencing that. but i am a referral and when i joined mylot i experienced that too. the technique is to include numbers in your username or make double letters or use two word username. it's understandable that of the thousands of people in mylot there is a great possibility of users having thought of the same username.the numbers and doubling letters or making two word username might do the trick.

That is right, you will have to try a number of names before you get one which will be accepted. My daughter has encountered this problem too with all of her referrals. If they are in close contact with you, you will have to assist them in this regard. It could be that someone has registered ahead of them using that same codename. It will not be much of a bother to you considering that you will help them register only once.
