Well, recently i felt that all the discussions i had started had just died down, and i have to say i did grow kind of sad and did blame people in my friends list, for not responding to me. before this, i would open my e-mail and see all these mails from my lot, that my discussions had been responded to. Then, that stopped,abruptly, i might say, and i would come to mylot, and go straight to my friend's discussions thinking that my friends had let me down by not responding to any of mine, but i'll respond to theirs so that they'll remember me and respond to mine, but today i went to my profile page and found that my discussions have been answered, it's just that i've stopped receiving mails about them, ofcourse, then i had to take a long time to comment and rate to all. I don't understand why this happened, nothing is going in my junk mail, e-mail notification is still on for my discussions here, so what am i missing? i don't know, has this happened to anyone else, lately?

Hello vega ! I am always replying to all your discussions , I even suggested some the discussions you later started (like the one about tombraider movie , I suggested in the discussion about silent hill movie ) That shows how deeply friendly we are , however I am a little SAD because you would not reply to my message to you . I will continue hoping to hear from you replying to my messages and my discussions ,because that is what true friends do , true friends hang on even if their friends are not treating them well , because friendship is like a currency in the stock market ,if everyone sells the whole market will crash and everyone will become poor !! Dont thank me for this post , it's the least you deserve because you are a kind person and I think you deserve to get 2 dollars a day !! THANK YOU for becoming my friend ! Thank you for joining MyLot ! Noone else can speak the words on your lips , feel the rain on your skin , no one else can feel it for you ! Today is where your boob begins , the rest is still UNWRITTEN !!!

yeah, sorry i never got back to you on that message, well my computer was down for a few days and i really didn't do much here on my lot, plus you asked me about the IQ test results and i couldn't locate those, i finally found the files, on tickle i got a 127, so you beat me there, and on other test sites, i've gotten 128, sometimes 135 and once i got 150 from IQtest.com, that was awesome,i also did this test for highiqsociety.com and qualified to become a member but i had to pay a membership fee to get in, ofcourse, and i do live in bahrain, yes, that's in my profile. By the way, what's the deal with your last line in the response, i really don't understand it, and i'm not sure i want to.

ok, well that's why they sounded weirdly familiar, but are you sure that's exactly how it goes.

I have had this happened here also, but also sometimes I got to post and it don't post and I have to try and try and try again before it will. Sometimes I can't respond at all, and have to wait a day or to for the system to register it. I tend not to get mad, because sometime I know from personal experience that not always does this system post the response. Glad your not mad anymore.

ok, THAT has not happened to me, ever, i'm thinking maybe that's not the system here, but your system, cuz that doesn't sound right. i just stopped getting email notifications, but i've never had problems in posting, ever.

I respond to the ones that I have opinions about. I opted not to receive emails about my discussions, it was just too much of a hassle. Every time I log in, I check the "discussions I started" link and rate the responses. Seems easier that way, to me.

yeah, that's usually what i did, when i knew i got some responses, it was mainly oversight i guess, but i wonder why the e-mails just stopped coming on their own, i don't remember changing any settings.

The option of receiving email about the replies you is present in the page which is linked as "edit your preferences". You can enable or disable it. Was actually wondering were you'd gone all this time cuz i haven't seen you in a while.

Ahh it happens sometimes vega, it was probably a glitch. Hope you are getting the mail notifications now atleast. I was away for the weekend and am getting back to mails and discussions only now so I will get around to yours very soon( like this one) The same thing happened a couple of weeks ago and none of us were receiving mail notifications when friends started new discussions. A fellow mylotter wrote to myLot and the problem was rectified. My inbox was flooded when I got back from my trip, so I know I had no such problem this time.

hey greengal, welcome back, well i dont' really mind no email notifications, but i mean, what went wrong was i wasnt' notified that i won't be notified anymore, if that's possible, and that's why instead i thought i was getting no responses, well i'm just glad i didn't start one of those topics then, 'why am i getting no responses' i try not to act when i'm upset. and i'm glad i didn't start that thread, i found out about the email notification instead, that was a relief.

well the best thing to do is to go directly to 'discussions i've started' when you log in, that way you can see which discussions have been responded to without having to rely on mail notification, and if then you can see 'discussions my friends started' and hope to catch the new ones they've started.

Its been happening to me and Im so sick of it. I have sent them many messages and nothing. Its been 3 days now for me. Make sure you let them know. You think they would have let us know about this. Because Im sure they know whats going on.

well, i'm not really sick of it myself, i'm thinking now i should have turned off notification myself, cuz it's just more material to go through and delete in my mail, when i can come directly here, i was just confused and it was all a misunderstanding cuz when it stopped i thought my responses had stopped and not the email notification.

if you use yahoo to get emails from here, you can probably blame yahoo. Yahoo was having problems this week with delivering emails. I wasnt getting any emails from my yahoo groups. I was getting my emails from here. But also wasnt getting my emails from myspace either. So if you use yahoo you can probably blame them for the emails not going through.

OMG! That is exctly what happened to me! The first time I get mail saying that someone responded but after that nothing came up. But I check my profile and found that people did in fact leave me responses...I felt better. I really don't know why they don't tell you by e-mail. It doesn't even say that I have a response when I log in...which I think they should change.

yeah, that's a good idea, just let us know that we've got responses, they don't have to say how many or for which discussions, just that we have responses so we can check on them.

well, it's not that big a deal, it's actually better not receiving all those mails, i just didn't realize that i was still getting responses though, but now that that confusion's over, it's better this way, now i go straight to discussions i've started first.

When I was new here in mylot, all my discussions and topics have zero responses or 6 to 10 replies, I don't care if they don't replied to my posts. What I did is posting many replies and comments to get my earning increase. Don't depend on your discussions alone. OK?

Lols....its nothing just a technical error if you were mad at your friends and something, i'm sure they'll understand.

I have been getting my emails but I know that same thing happened to me with myspace. I just think it is easier to come directly to the source and check it out for yourself.

I have been having a great deal of trouble getting emails when my friend's start new discussions; one day I'll get a 'slew' of them and the next I won't get anything; where I have to look at my friends, one at a time to see if they started anything new... It may be happening again, I'm not sure; I hope not...Good luck to you.

Hi Vega the site went down a few days ago for maintainance the other day and things have been a little off since then. I haven't been getting my email notifications either. Hopefully they will get it worked out soon.

That happened to me one time. I think it was just a glitch in mylots. It's easier to just go into "discussions I've started" and check out your discussions. That is, until you have a jillion discussions going, and then it gets hard to keep up! LOL
