Yesterday, for the first time since I joined MyLot, a discussion I started got deleted! I know a lot of people get annoyed or upset when they have a discussion deleted, but I'm not too bothered by it. I knew it was bound to happen at some point! Besides, my earnings for yesterday were more than double what I usually earn! So that put me in a good mood! Have you ever had one of your discussions deleted? How did it make you feel? Were you upset, or did you not care? How often do you usually get discussions deleted on MyLot?

LOL, I've been a member for just over a week and yesterday they deleted TWO of my discussions (one of them had over 50 responses... no aggro or anything) I wasn't angry, just confused as to why they disappeared. I agree that if admin delete a discussion due to breaking of guidelines etc then they should send a message explaining why to make it easier for us to avoid the problem in the future Having said that, someone who responded to the hot discussion did state that s/he had seen similar topics before and was surprised my topic had lasted 13 hours on Mylot... I assumed they were talking about the number of responses... but perhaps they were talking about admin deleting it.

Over 50 responses?? Yikes! I'd probably be upset if that happened to me! They really should notify you when a topic is deleted and explain why. But oh well, what can you do about it?

There was nothing I could do... like I say, I was more confused than upset. BTW, this thread is likely to get deleted too.. since the guidelines state that you should not post about individual issues you are having with MyLot Oh well, live and learn LOL.

I found it on my own. I was checking the discussions I posted yesterday to see if there were any new responses, and I found that one of them wasn't there! I would have been really confused if I hadn't read lots of discussions from other MyLot users talking about how MyLot deletes discussions.

I am not sure if an entire discussion has been deleted but, I have seen my number got down one point at a time a couple of times since I started here. I don't really like it because I don't know what got deleted. Maybe that could be something that myLot does. If they delete a discussion or a response, then they should email us or give us an alert as to what it was and maybe why it was deleted.

I agree! MyLot should give you some type of notification about why a discussion was deleted. Especially if you did something wrong, so that you'd know not to do it again!

Congratulations, you are a now a true mylotter. I was very upset but got over it real quick and it has never happened again. It eventually happens to all of us.

I have had one or two discussions deleted. The thing that just annoys me about it is the confusion that it leaves you with when you are looking for it. I actually got one of my discussions deleted myself, it was a fine discussion but whatever it was it spoke about basically started a huge war and everyone that took part in it started arguing with each other and I just couldn't be bothered with that.

I was really confused and frustrated at the time, when I first experienced a discussion of mine to be deleted. But I didn't took it the WRONG way as I didn't end up whining and complaining on where it did go, instead I looked/searched and even seek advice from other members on how to explain to me why a discussion gets deleted. That prompted me to come across mylot's own profile here, there I saw some additional informations aside from the one's written in the guidelines section and on the TO's. Until then, I do my best to avoid posting and even responding on discussions that I know would get deleted sooner or later..

Wow! I don't think that's fair that they'd delete discussions for things listed in their profile and NOT in the guidelines section or in the terms of service!!! I'll go check out their profile! Thanks for the heads up!

i have a discussions that was deleted but i am requesting the admin to do so because i found out that i was against the TOS of mylot. so far all of my discussion are not deleted anymore because i see to it that it will violating the TOS. maybe your discussions violate some rules that is why is was deleted.

Well, I have been active in here now over 17 months. I have started a lot of discussions, and had some of them deleted from time to time. It usually never bothers me unless I had a lot of responses to where it affected my $$ earnings on here as well. I feel this site is a learning experiance and you learn as you go. As to how often, as far as I know very little at all. It happens and I move on, and learn from my mistakes. Good Luck and continue to enjoy myLot.

Knock on wood, I haven't had anything deleted yet, but I suppose its bound to happen sometime or another and I am prepared for the inevitable. I have had comments within my discussions deleted because of the nature of the comment, i.e., bigotry and things like that.

i dont reallly care if they delete it, but sometimes if theres a money making website included in the post and they deleted it, i would mind it a bit, eventhough its not a referral link.besides the ones they usually delete are those without responses.

i don't think i had ever have my discussions deleted as i seldom post here and the topic that i post are usually general ones... if i got one of my disucssion deleted, i won't be upset... but i will find out the reason why and ask the admin myself...

I felt offended by it. Does anyone else feel offended verses angry? There probably is no need to feel that way but that was how I felt. I tend to feel more dissapointed when I see a loss of money earned for no apparent reason. The reason problem is that a discussion I was in got deleted. That is a bummer because I normally put effort into my comments as I am sure most mylotter's do so then it feels like a waste of time. All in all I am happy with myLot.

that is unusual stuff. there must have been some mistake. i have also started a few discussions but none got deleted even if it was inactive for months. moreover one of my discussions never came up with a reply. even that still exists.
