We've all been kvetching about the glitches with the MyLot email notices lately...like not getting any?? Well, guess that's over with at least for me...but now I have the opposite problem...I have so many email notices, perhaps all the notices I HADN'T been getting that it's going to take me a few weeks to go through...also, I've noticed doubles of the same discussion in my notices...So I apologize if I haven't gotten to your discussions yet...will though..uh, eventually. Anyone else being overloaded with email notices now?

I got all those emails and duplicates too and then I come on here and find I didn't get a lot of the discussions anyway. I thought I was so smart deleting all the emails and thinking I'd work through everything on here. I didn't realize the discussions would be so hard to find even going through "discussions my friends started", since it isn't in chronological order I'll most likely miss a bunch. Here's hoping it straightens out completely this week.

I know it's hard to find new discussions if one just relies on that link "discussions friends started"--it means going through pages and pages..so don't know which is worse, that or sifting through tons of email notices

I just get the daily digest because I haven't been very active lately. I may just keep it that way so I don't get bogged down. I really hate going through tons of email. Of course if I would check it daily it wouldn't get so bad. But I end up leaving things sitting there until I want to deal with them... my fault for being lazy...lol Good luck and Brightest Blessings, Mari

Unfortunately the daily digest doesn't have all the friends discussions..just a handful and so many of my friends have started so many discussions

Hi pye, I sure can relate to this, so thought I'd answer it before shutting down for the night, and because it's myLot related. I won't have to think too deeply to respond here, as my brain power is depleting due to needed sleep. I e-mailed admin. about these problems a couple of days ago, and received an answer back yesterday. They said they're well aware of the situation, and that it's definitely a glitch, that they're working to fix. In the meantime, like you, my in box is now flooded, and is such a mess. Will I ever catch up?! Quite a few are duplicates though, and even triplicates. The thing is, I may not get any new ones for today, and then they'll all come pouring in a day later. Take care.

Hiya someonesmom...I do hope they fix all these email glitches soon though...can't believe all the emails I'm sifting through now...going to take me at least a week to sort things out and then to reply to my friend's discussions

I'm pretty much caught up from last night for now. I don't get a whole lot of notices. Average 20 a day and last night some were doubles. I have about 5 today so far which I'll have gone thru b4 I have to leave in a lil while.

With only 47 friends and bout 1/2 of them inactive, I have no problems keeping up long as I come here at least once a day. When I'm not here for a few days is when I get far behind.

I know what you mean. I have quite a few emails today, but I don't mind. I just will keep going at them and soon I will be caught up. there were only about 30 emails, most of which were from here. Some of them had several messages. That's what I like about gmail. It combines all the discussions one person starts and if there are duplicates, it is added to the first one. That helps a lot. Have you tried that one? I think it is by invite only, but I really like it.

Since last time I came in here, I have accumulated about 60 emails. I have been responding to comments, but not new discussions this week because I was trying to get homework done. Do you want me to send you info on gmail? If so, send me a pm. Talk to you later.

Yes, my friend, I have too. There have been two of everything, including BRs and Discussions Started. Sheeesh, I wish they'd get themselves sorted out, once and for all. It drives you nuts! One minute you're sitting here twiddling your thumbs, and feeling mighty lonely, and the next, you're spending the whole day clearing out your e-mail, sweat pouring from your brow, and a few cuss words from your mouth! I've just about caught up with mine now, from lunchtime today. Let's hope for a calmer day tomorrow, but not too calm, huh? Brightest Blessings. x

Yup--when we had the glitch where we weren't getting any email notices I thought everyone from MyLot had disappeared from the face of the earth,and yes was twiddling my thumbs...now my thumbs and fingers are going like lightening to catch up here...

Yes---- Too many discussions. I went through them all yesterday and deleted the ones that I jus don’t have time for. I will work my way through the rest- but it’s hard when new ones are added daily! I am getting a lot of duplicate e-mail notifications as well. Drives me crazy--- but at least we are getting them again right??

Yup--I guess that is one great thing that we're at least getting the notices now...don't worry, I wound up deleting tons myself..especially the duplicates

yep I am so far behind, I haven't got a clue when I will be able to catch up. But better this way than no emails at all. I just don't like going into the site to hunt down discussions. With the volume I normally do, it is much easier for me this way. And look I am responding to you three days later.

Don't feel sorry about deleting...to be honest I did the same thing...now I just go to my friends profile pages to catch up on their discussions bit by bit...all those emails notices were driving me nuts!
@gemini_rose (16192)

Yes I did have quite a few come steaming into my email box all at the same time, it takes so long to get through them all and then like you say there are doubles on some. So yes I think it will keep me quiet for some weeks to come!

I was off my computer last night too for about two hours as I had something else to do...and that two hours could have made a difference in getting a bit caught up...oh, well, guess I'll get caught up eventually

Hi there Pye. Having taken a long break from MyLot I turned off my email notifications. Perhaps it's just as well I did as it seems everyone is getting an email overload.

I'm having a hard time keeping up as well. It took me forever last night to get through all my mylot emails, and all of them were doubles and triples. Plus I'm having a hard time keeping up with working 2 jobs and all.
