Have you guys noticed lately that some of the mylotters have become inactive? I recently went through my friends list and noticed that some of them have just stopped using mylot.It actually sad to see most of us leave just like. How do you feel when your friends do that?

It sucks when that happens, especially if that friend happens to always leave great responses for you on your discussions and if you enjoy having discussions with them. I too, have noticed that with some of my friends, their postings have stopped all together as they still have the same number next to their name. And they haven't started any new discussions either. I also stopped in between for a while, where my friends would have missed me too, but that was not by choice, my internet got disconnected, (didn't pay the bill, he he, embarrassed). But I can say from experience, I really missed my lot those days. It's so great to be back now.

I'm so glad you came back.Yeah the number at the side of some of them has been the same for around a month.Thats how i figured that they're gone.It really hurts when they respond and interact so well with.I mean they are not your real friends but the fellowship you share here is so great.

When it,s someome that didnt really participate in your discussion or didnt write a lot of new topic, I don,t really find it hard. But sometimes it someome who was really participating and suddenly they are gone. Some people just get tired of doing something after a while. I don't know hom much forum I left in my life lol

I think a lot of people become inactive because you can't make much money on the site. You have to answer a lot of discussions to earn enough money for pay out each month. It's kind of discouraging.

But money's not the ultimate goal.yes it is but one can use the forum part of it to share a lot of ideas and get a lot of suggestions too.Thats the main reason i'm using it.

Well I think this is a cool place to get to make some good new friends and also gain some learning experience from other people. Lets face it though some people only come here because they are trying to earn the money promised, and if MyLot is not paying them then more than likely they would leave. I am here not just for the money but if I don't even get what I earn I'll not be a very happy person that's for sure.

Well I've been recently inactive too and I have many friends in many other sites that wanted to be my friend but we never talked. That's because we are more free on the weekend.I personally be active here only when I'm the weekend and alone, because here more than 5 person need the computer.How do I feel? Well I feel guilty a little because I don't make them active or talk with them a lot.But hey this is life, good or bad, besides they will become active again when the have time. You'll see. Now it's spring and the exams seasons are coming. Don't worry you will see that things will get better.

I have a referral and she posted about 4 comments and no more after that. At first I felt quite sad that some people would just came and tried and left but then after a few weeks, that doesn't bother me anymore. This is a free site and everybody can come and go as they wish and I will keep on posting for as long as I enjoy it.

Depending on where the people live, it could be spring break. Kids could be out of school for a week or so. Parents may have their hands full. I am active during the week. The only time I am online at the weekend is if my hubby has a band gig. I haven't noticed anyone leaving. But then, I really haven't been looking. I've been too busy answering discussions. Give them time, they may be back.

I suppose it is natural computer connections are not real life, so people will sometimes get so busy with real life that they just don't have the time to devote to computer time. I know that for me I just get so busy at times I just can't always spend time online. We often get so busy that we don't even have time for real life in person friends, let online those who are online. Then there is the fact that people go in cycles when they are into something they are gungho but after a while they become bored or they need a change or just want something different, and then go back to it later on. For this reason people will drift from the amount of time they spend online.
