Have You Noticed This? Is This a New Thing Here at Mylot?

I don't know how long this has been going on but when I started posting my responses today, I noticed that some of the phrases are in blue. For example, after posting one of my responses the words "i know" got highlighted in blue and when i placed my mouse on it and clicked on the words it led me to a different page with pictures and topics with the phrase "i know" on them. Has this been going on for a long time? Have you experienced the same thing? I don't remember getting an alert from mylot about it. I think it's cool though 'cause it's another way to find other discussions. What do you think?

Friends , it is not a new thing . And we might not have an alert for this . These blue words are called tag words (like the key words) . It was there from the beginning . we were facing some problems due to these links and Mylot staff removed them about 2 months ago . I hope that the problems have been fixed and Mylot reverted the tag wording feature ...

yes, tag... a javascripting leading to binary searches of the same character, so when you have the a match of the character it will automatically link it to the category it has been existing..^_^

It just started happening but I think it has already stopped. I noticed it earlier today but I haven't noticed it doing it tonight. We're they just trying it out and didn't like it or what?

haha! maybe they were just experimenting or playing games, huh? probably some people complained or something. i'm not sure. it was a bit distracting but i found it helpful though. i won't mind if they bring it back.

This highlighting tag words has helped me a lot finding other new discussions without going all over myLot to find the ones I can't find normally. So I for one truely like this feature. Happy postings from Grandpa Bob

I do realize it though and just assume that for some improvement from the myLot to the system here. Actually the word is the key for this new way of the system. As we can see, some keyword is not relevant at all for the topics, for the example "i don't know". What kind of topic should go for i don't know? I think it's kinda beta testing :) and lots of improvement expecting from myLot....

Yeah! I noticed it yesterday yet it does not appear always .I think that are the tags that we enter at the end of all discussions that are been highlighted and formed links to other discussions

holding hands - nothing could separate us
I have noticed it too and when i point that out, i have an idea that the word in blue are tag words. Other's say it was not a new thing for them because they have always see blue words mostly in their topic. But this information really helps for those who are new here.

i've never come across such a thing. But, ya, it's cool. If it links us to other discussions, that will help find more topics to respond to.

I know about this, and this feature already existed a long time ago. I think it's a good features that help us to find more discussions to reply, and can help us to earn more money.

I think it must be some links that get added when you post a discussion with some tags, these tags of urs match with already present tags in others posts and will interlink so that reader can easily jump to some similar discussion This is only my idea thru my observation.

hmmm. i havent noticed this until i saw your post. perhaps this has something to do with the tags we make. the words highlighted in blue leads us to other discussions with the same tags as the words that have been highlighted.

I only noticed it literally from this morning, and so I think it's a brand new thing that just started today. I was a little worried at first lol, because I thought people were linking to random words in their discussions and I'm thinking, "is that allowed??" lol, but then I noticed it was with lots of people and I realized that it had to be something that MyLot had started When I saw words I'd typed in a response highlighted in blue, it sealed it for me lol.

I think they had the blue text when I first joined and then I didn't notice it this past month. They don't bother me at all.
