Not posting discussions and I am sorry

United States
May 11, 2007 11:06am CST
Lately I have been upset on this site. No need to go into it, as a lot of you have the same feelings why. Anyway, I am not going to post for awhile. I am so tired of all the deletions that I am getting. Obviously MyLot doesn't care for what I post. I try hard, like y'all, and wake up to find 34 missing points today. I am not sure how much longer I will even bother being here. I'm really upset right now. I am also sorry for anyone that lost points because of me. God bless you, M&M

Anytime they take away points, they take away earnings. You are very sweet and kind to say that. I am just down a bit today. I will respond only for now, and answer discussions. If they continue to still deduct, I don't know if I will stay. Maybe only to chat with y'all a bit.

I'm sorry to hear your upset margie, and as I'm fairly new I do have a questions for you. Isn't it normal for posts to be deleted after time? Don't they clear out the old threads periodically to make room for the new ones? With as many posts as you have (yow almost 16,000) don't you kind've expect the old ones to go away or am I clueless here? I wouldn't think that it would effect your earnings if they were older posts since you've already been compensated for them I would imagine. Is my thought process flawed, is that not the way it works here?

They don't delete old posts. The rules are not clear either, especially about what they pay. They also do not always respond back, when you email them. I have been here for 7 months, and have seen way too many changes. I just don't like that we don't get a reason why they do it. And if they delete or drop your rates/points you do loose the money. Good luck on here. I will be on daily to keep up with friends, I just am not posting discussions now. Bless you, M&M

Thanks so much for clarifing things for me. I find the payout structure a little suspect myself, but I kind've understand why they want to keep it a secret. It does from the surface at least seem a bit shady. I didn't realize that they didn't clear out the old posts, I thought I read somewhere that they do clear out duplicate, or abusive threads. That really bites that removing threads cuts into your income. For what it's worth, I'm sorry.

Hi again my friend. They do remove abusive ones, but I have never done that. I keep loosing points, even if I am not posting. they won't answer why. It just doesn't seem fair or honest to me either. Wishing you a great weekend. Thanks for your replys.

Thanks for your sweet words. I will check on y'all. I just don't want to post questions anymore. MyLot isn't fun like it used to be. I never know what I can say, or not. I'm sorry for anyone that lost points on my behave or otherwise.

I am not going to post discussions. If I see this agan tomorrow, I don't know what I will do. I have no idea why my rates go backwards. Remember when we could see them? They moved them so they could remove them without us knowing I think.

Honey, it is too many points. They are doing this daily, and it really is hurting. I have only been answering my friends postings, and they are removing 10 to 30 points a day. That means less pennies. Hugs sugar. Take care too.

well.. why dont you try making another account... we all know... when people are really old members here... and they have like about a thousand posts... then mylot seems to be actively looking at them... seeing what they are doing... what all they are posting... and stuff like that... or you could read all the rules properly and then start posting again... just so thatyou donot give mylot admin a chance to delete your posts...

Interesting, but they will know, as they deposit into PayPal. I think that they want all the older people to leave. We were here when they paid better, and we did not work so hard for a penny. Thanks for your help my friend. Blessings.

Honey, you have been on here long enough to know that is a waste of time. It isn't the first time either. Once it was 126 points. Don't you think it has changed a lot here since we started? Hugs back honey.

I really don't pay any attention to my points. Why are they deleting your posts? What were the topics? I don't understand it. I am sorry you are experiencing this. Here's a great big hug! X!

I have no idea. I do not like political correctness and I checked mature content even though I do not post explicit material because I have no idea whether myLot does the Disney thing where anything above an old grandmother's or a child of six was considered mature.

I'm sorry M&M, but you do what you feel is best for you. I don't understand what is going on with mylot myself, but I do know that I have read an awful lot of posts about members being unhappy. I hope mylot reads into this and corrects or at least addresses these issues and make some sort of peace offering with everyone. I hope you will not leave completely, I enjoy your discussions and your responses to mine. Take care.

Hi sugar, you are very kind and sweet. I will only be checking in a little to stay in touch with people like you. Everyday since I posted this, they have removed 10 to 30 points daily. No reason, as I just answered other people's posts. I am very sick of it. Anyway, have a blessed day. Thanks for your friendship. Blessings, M&M

Hello, I recently went through this same thing. I was about to give up altogether because of missing posts and people just being immature. I encourage you to take a break from it all, and come back when you feel refreshed. You will be missed here if you go, so I encourage you to re-think this. I'm sorry you're upset, and I hope it gets better! Good luck dear!

Oh no friend, that is very bad of those people who're responsible for doing all that. I can imagine how you are feeling right now. I have had other people complaining of thesame thing. But I wonder why Mylot can't do something to stop those people doing such things. Just be patience. All these things happening shouldn'nt make you abandon those wonderful friends you're having here in Mylot. Thanks, take care of yourself and have a nice day.

Bless your heart honey. But, it is MyLot doing it. I have lost another 30 points, and I am really getting tired of it. The best to you sugar.

Margie, I meant to mention this the last time I was on here, but got distracted. I noticed on some of the jokes that you had posted someone was adding the tag "joke=violation=mylot deletes" and after reading your message just now, I went to your profile and looked and could not find the jokes you posted. (I may have overlooked them, but I didn't see them) Is it possible that would account for the 34 points? I think you may have fallen victim to some self-appointed mylot police who were hateful and reported your funny, funny jokes as some sort of violation. It's just a guess, but....it seems reasonable. Anyway, hang in there and I hope to still hear from you. If you need another way to make money online, check out www.associatedcontent.com It is not a referral link. You write articles about things and they pay you a base price for the article and then a bonus based on page views. I'm sure articles about your art would go over well. They pay between $3 and $10 usually, though sometimes higher, for each article. They pay via paypal and usually pay within three days of accepting an article. Sometimes, the accepting part takes up to two weeks. Good luck, sweetie!

Oh honey, thank you so much for your help and the link. I'm going to look into that now. I am also loosing points each day from just answering other people's posts too. So, I am tired of it all. God bless you sugar, and thanks again.

I've been gone for 4 days and came back to find points missing as well. I understand posts being deleted but it seems to happen far too often. I've lost points quite a bit in the last few weeks. It's enough to drive a person nuts.

I can understand how you feel, Margie. Won´t go into this either, because I don´t want your discussion to be deleted. I can´t see what´s wrong with your posts. Too many recipes maybe? That isn´t against the rules as far as I know. I´d hate to see you leave the site and would really miss you. :-( Blessings, dear friend Dana

Thanks Dana. I'm just not posting discussions. It's not fair that they drop my points and never tell me why. I'll check on here daily just answer a few of my friends posts, like you. Hugs sugar, M&M

Wow! One of the top myLotters yet. I am sorry to hear this. I also am one that doesn't pay attention to my points most times. I've seen where I lost a few and a few pennies also but nothing as big as 34. It is sad all the deletions happening. My guess is that there is now a group out there that's reporting every minor violation of mylot guidelines. I don't think mylot admins can be doing this muc searching on their own. I report just flagrant copied discussions etc and the referral link ones most times. But thats just a few in my time here. I hate seeing or hearing of the deteted points from any member also. So thats one reason I don't report the abuse I see often. I've reported only a few in all my time here as I really feel guilty about the innocent members that respond to them not realizing the possible outcome. Good luck and hope to see you sticking around. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Hi Grandpa Bob. You may be on to something there. But, I never break rules, so I don't see why anything of mine was deleted. I just noticed all my rate numbers going down. Take care, and thanks for the lovely input you gave.

I can't believe that you lost more points yet again. I think that it is not right that they don't answer your questions as to why this is happening. I would miss you if you went. I know I haven't been around alot lately but I am going to try to be more active.

Keep your chin up. You are still over 16,000 with them taking your points. Jerks. I would use stronger words but I am a lady.

Well today they took another 20, and I didn't post anything. I am really fed up here. We work too hard to get so many points removed daily without an explaination.

Not to offend you or anything, but I know it personally ticks me off to browse posts and find that someone has a virtually identical discussion to someone else's. If your posts had already been covered, then I can't say I find any sympathy that yours are being deleted. Makes no sense to cover the same issues over multiple discussions. If your stuff is being deleted without good reason, then I would probably be bummed, but take it as a lesson that someone has it out for you and just stick to replying. That's (for the most part) what I do now. Too many greedy people out to keep others down to help out themselves.

Thank you for sticking up for me sugar. I have no time for people that think that they know everything. Bless your heart. I have been loosing points daily. Anywhere from 10 to 30 since I posted this. And, they are from me answering other people's postings. I just wish MyLot would let us know why. I am not breaking the rules, and it is too hard, as you know, to loose that many daily. Anyway, thanks again for your friendship and caring to say something to rabi9634. How are things going for you with the Avon? Blessings, M&M
