Well i havent experienced anything like this atleast not yet i even dont remember how many did i post in total i guess not giving too much attention to the numbers but rather concentrating on the topic to respond and perhaps your two posts never got lost and that the system coubld be still in upgrading process and correcting all the time must be some technical error and will be restored soon i guess,Best of luck for the restoration.

True. Unless 500 of my posts were deleted, I'd never know. I don't notice the number. It took me a couple weeks to look and see what it was.

Yes, sometimes you can answer a post and it gets removed for whatever reason. It could be the person that posted the original post got banned or deleted so the whole topic is gone to include your response. Or if there was something in the topic that was in violation of the rules that would also make the post get removed, and any responses also removed and thus your rating will go slightly down. Hope this helps!

I've read in some discussions that mylot can delete some of the posts that they think are not useful like "Me too..", "Yes, I do.." and all those short comments that are not really helping. No offense, but if you ever remember posting something like that, maybe that was it. =) Cheer up! Other members even get more posts deleted.

Vicky I know how frustrated you must be feeling - I have just had 2 discussions totally wiped - I think because of short responses or because I have been commenting on every response I got! If you had responded to discussions that got wiped hon then your response will also be wiped thus your numbers come back down! I always try to stay positive but am quite upset at the moment - this seems to be happening an awful lot just now!

A lot of the time jokes are removed when people report them. That could be a reason. You never know sometimes. Not the best answer, but that's the only possibility I know since I seriously doubt you posted anything obscene.

Missatonic, because she does seem to share the same interests- RPG, animes and geeky stuff. And SndCain, because her discussions will always have lot of "Muslims" who cant understand their own book, reminding me how much work I have to improve my religion. ---------------- Have a nice day -JCM-

Oh dear, I must apologize, I posted in the wrong discussion. On your problem, Mylot delets older discussions once in a while, as well as heated flamewars, so your post count goes lower. This however, does not afect the money you have earned, so dont e worried.

I am also experiencing the same problem, my post number keep dropping as well as my earnings keep on dropping. I guess maybe mylot has delete some of the discussions that don't follow mylot rule. So the discussions end up being deleted by mylot and so as some of my posts.

First, have you read the writer's guidelines (do's and don'ts) as well as the discussion on why posts are deleted? Guidelines: http://www.mylot.com/o/topguidelines.aspx This is not up to date, but you can go to this discussion and see some of the reasons discussions are deleted: http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/457762.aspx Unfortunately, these guidelines are vague to some members so let me give you some information that may help you. If you create or respond to discussions that are in violation of rules on mylot, the posts will be deleted. If the responses you give to others are in violation of rules, they will also be deleted, and in some cases violations can and do get your account banned. Here are some violations that will get your discussions and responses deleted: If you create a 'joke' discussion or respond to one, it is considered a violation because jokes are copy and pasted and not written in your own words. SO, mylot considers this a form of plagiarism and will delete them. If you copy and paste, plagiarize, copyright infringe, by taking text from other websites without giving the link to where you took the words from and starting your own discussion based on the text you quoted, the discussion and or response can be deleted. If you announce a milestone, it will be deleted. Milestones include: I've reached 100, 500, 1000 posts, It's my anniversary, It's my birthday, I've made it to a new mylot rating, etc. Mylot feels those discussions only draw in members to reply with simple responses and not a quality response more often then not, so they would rather us use private messages for that. If you post a poll or survey type of discussion or respond to one, they will be deleted. If you create or respond to a discussion in a language other than english it will be deleted. I can go on and on. Basically, create a discussion or response with your own words, and make sure it is a quality post. Do not respond to discussions that you KNOW are in violation of any of the rules, and you will ensure that your points won't go down on a large scale. Hope this helps.

this is not unusual at this time of the month. Its just mylot doing the spring cleaning. If you have inadvertantly responded to a discussion that later gets deleted you will also lose your credit point. I think it happens to us all blessed be

Mylot deleted 2 of your responses. You might have responded to a thread that violated mylot rules. For some reason, mylot deleted topics or responses pertaining to online money making, about celebration of any kind and about jokes. Try to be more selective in the topics you're responding. Read the guidelines set by mylot so you will have a more clear understanding on what to do here. Good luck. :)

Vicky, I am still learning the whole system-but I have trouble keeping up with the count as well...I think I will have a certain number but am always off from my count...so I just accept whatever they put there.....I am sorry that this seems to have upset you though. Hope you are able to fingure it out.....

I don't think I would get too angry about it because as has been mentioned, they could have been lost do to either deleted discussions by others, or by one of your posts being deleted. These things happen, especially if myLot feels that they are violating the rules for whatever reason. In addition, with the new upgrades, there are bound to be glitches, so this could affect things, so do not worry too much about small amounts. Just keep your eye on things, and if you were still concerned, I would contact myLot and ask them. They could tell you details of why your numbers have gone down.
