The other day I made a post about getting to 1500 posts. I was quite proud of myself. When I checked the next day it had been deleted. Now what I want to know is why was mine deleted but other peoples arnt? I have seen several in the last few days about making it to 100 or 500 or 1000. They havent been deleted but mine was. Im just curiouse. Why can they do it but I cant??

Had anyone posted responses to your discussion? Maybe it was one of the responses that got your post deleted. If someone responded with a ref link and another myLot user reported them, myLot may have taken it down because of that. Also, what topic did you post under? If it was under discussions about myLot, I see no reason for it to have been deleted, other than because of someone leaving a link to another site or something.

I posted a similar discussion yesterday and I was deleted too. I was told that it was because milestone posts like that were in violation of Mylot rules. And I had lots of really good comments lol. I had about 10-15 altogether!

I read the Guidelines top to bottom (both in the Do's and Don'ts) and see absolutely nothing about "milestone posts" being in violation of myLot rules. It is my belief that if enough people who read your post report it (for whatever reason) it will be deleted by myLot without myLot staff even reading the post.

It just depends if you reported or not or a moderator sees it I imagine, it's sad if someone reported you for such a minor thing I see those types of posts on here all the time.

I cant imagine why it would be deleted. If someone got it deleted Id like to know why. It didnt disobey any of the rules.

It is really something difficult to understand here. I also don't uderstnd it. I have never checked that way whether those discussions of mine are deleted or not. But few discussions of few people get deleted.

Is that so? Why like that? Who deleted your posts, the mylot itself? Ohh.. am worried. What if it happened to me also? Why not write mylot to answer your worries and uncertainties? Write them... after of all the efforts you have exerted, they will just delete it as simple as that? It's not really fair. So, write them.

Because myLot has their favorites. Just like some accounts get deleted for nothing except a bogus claim on the part of a whackjob here and others, well, nothing is done.

I wonder that too sometimes. I have seen other posts deleted on the same topic and others still here and not sure why. I wonder who is reporting all the deleted posts? makes you wonder doesn't it? sorry to hear yours got deleted!

Don't feel left out. Its not that they can do it and you can't, its that usually it has to be reported for the site admin to see it and delete it. Think about it, there are so many people making so many posts everyday. The site admin can't keep up with everyone that makes posts that are not within MyLot's rules. They rely on people to report discussions that aren't within the guidelines. Unfortunately, someone was jealous of how many posts you had, and reported it, that's why it was deleted. You could go back and report these other people that have made similar posts, but why waste your time doing that? You must be a quality poster else you wouldn't have made it this far. My suggestion is to just ignore it, and continue to do what you are doing. These people who have made these posts will eventually be deleted, and the person who reported you more than likely isn't doing so hot here in the first place. You will come out better in the end.
