I have been a member of Mylot now for sixteen months. When I look back on the number of friends I've made... very special friends at that, from all walks of life... and the number of discussions I've posted, I'm amazed! Friends have come and friends have gone; some have even gone and returned, but I go on, relentlessly, a Mylot Freak of the first degree, making more friends and posting more discussions, whilst giving a little help to others on the way. I would say that Mylot is unique. Ok, there are plenty more forums and posting sites out there, but none of them seems to quite cut it with me. Mylot has always had the edge! I like that you get your own profile, to do with more or less what you please. Friends can leave you lovely comments which brighten your day, and you can always look back on your activities to find an old friend or their discussion. We can choose our own interests and post our discussions within them, or wherever we like basically, whereas most other sites either list the categories you are allowed to discuss, or give you a blog, which people can visit and comment on. So, there again, Mylot is one of a kind. I have yet to find another like it. Eek... I'm a Mylot Freak!!! Are you a Mylot freak? Do you think that the site is unique in the way it's designed and run? How long have you been with Mylot, and if you're a Newbie, how do you find the site? Do you have any problems with the site, and if so, why do you hang on in here? Could it be that you too, are a Mylot Freak? Your thoughts on the Mylot conception and what keeps you coming here, please guys. Keep it lighthearted, and friendly, please.

Mylot - dancing freak to freak! LOL Yep. You said it all and just right Darkwing. I think what keeps me a mylot Freak is the 'instant' interaction. No matter what time of night or day you come on here, there is always someone that will respond to a comment you make within minutes. Sometimes you have to search far afield to make the connection (especially on slow nights), but the magic is there. There are always active users and someone to 'talk' to. It is very hard to get lonely here and I think that's why a lot of people are here - because they are lonely in their real lives, and being here is like being surrounded by people who are so glad to see you, talk to you, that your lonliness goes away while you're here. No other site on the net can do that, that I've found. So - yes please, me a happy mylot freak, now let's dance! LOL

You're only Mylot Dancing Freakthere, not Freak to Freak! Yes, I agree, there is a certain magick here... always somebody active, and it's difficult to get lonely. There's great community spirit and support here. Pogo is a good site for lonely peeps. You can chat while you play. Ok, ok, already... I pronounce you a Mylot Freak from here forward. *Darkwing, lowers the sword onto both shoulders of Spark*. Brightest Blessings, my friend, and thank you for your contribution. xx

hello, i have been here for 34 days total (actively) a friend of mine shared this with me coz i told her i am trying to figure out a way to help my husband paying bills and mylot comes in, i realized after my first day here that i cannot really make something decent so i gave up and then one boring afternoon i just browse back again and the rest is history i love to be here coz i can share my thoughts, though some will oppose me and not like me after that, but who cares, i'd rather be real than be someone i am not even if this is just a net. all in all, i am staying here till they say i cannot be then there is nothing i can do about that, i hope not though coz i enjoy every moment i am here. takecare!

If you have some friends you know would stay active here, then bring them in as referrals. They will increase your earnings whilst they earn themselves. I'm glad you came back here my friend... I really think it's the best place to be as far as learning and making good friends goes. Brightest Blessings, and thank you for your contribution.

You're more than welcome my friend. I think at some point you might be able to find some friends who will be interested in Mylot. You could just tell them you know this really fun site, where you can chat with and help others out, and earn money at the same time. Ask them if they'd like to join you in here, by signing up. After all... it costs nothing, and the earnings are better than a lot of the other free sites. xx

With you too, my friend, I think we were brought together on here. Something is working with us, that's for sure. I keep meeting more and more people who know where I'm coming from and that means a lot to me. I'm certainly glad I found you my friend because living so close to each other, we can help each other, and teach each other, on our journey through this life. Brightest Blessings... you are indeed a Mylot Freak. Welcome to the Clan and thank you for your contribution. xxx

I think I am a mylot freak as I keep on going after I was whacked from a ten to a six because I like mylotting and I have made a number of friends,wont mention enemies. and I intend to work to get back my reputation. mylot has finally answered my emails and they promised me to lookinto the matter. so I feel a lot better. I enjoy responding to interesting discussions and the feeling of friendship that I have met here and I will not quit now. I love the way this is set up and the freedom we are given. I have only been here for seven or so weeks and have gained over three thousand points as I have all the time in the world as I am retired and needed something worthwhile to do.I have also found out that I am not a quitter so if someone has tried to push me out they have failed badly as they do not know me at all.today I feel young at heart and that makes me feel younger physically as well.

You have great spirit my friend and are indeed a Mylot Freak It's not good to see you being whacked from a ten to a six, but then, what does your star rating really matter in relation to the enjoyment you get from the site, and the company of good friends? It happens from time to time, usually in waves, until the petty-minded get found out, and ousted from the site, or simply tire from their foolish attacks. It is good, however, to see you standing up to this and letting it go over your head, undeterred. Brightest Blessings my dear friend, in the hope that you soon get this problem sorted. Thank you for your contribution, too. x

I have to hold my hand up and admit that I am a MyLot Freak I joined to find some kind of social interaction and boy did I find it here. There are many wonderful people on this site, all posting great discussions and lovely responses. Having been here over a year now I can honestly say that I don't like to miss a day now, and log in as soon as I can every day.

OK, my friend, you are a very highly valued Mylot Freak! It's true, the friendship and interaction rating on this site, is very high! There's lots of knowledge and wisdom out there, that is offered willingly by just about every member in the Mylot Community, and that is unrivaled outside the site. I hate to miss a day in here too. As I said previously, when I'm unable for some reason, to get into the site, I feel as though I haven't seen the start of another day, and I seem to b in limbo, wondering what I'm missing in here! Brightest Blessings and thank you for your contribution, my friend. xx

Hi Darkwing; I can see by your score that you definitely spend quite a bit of time at MyLot. I signed up quite a while ago and for a while I was posting and making comments every single day. It is cool to be able to get unique opinions from other people p topics that are of interest to me and also to share my opinions with others. I don't visit MyLot as much as I used to but I do drop by from time to time to see what is going on around here. I received my first payment a couple months ago which was a nice little bonus. Like a lot of people here I am not here for the money but more for the fun, although I did try the recruiting thing at first. Julie
@Darkwing (21588)

Hi Julie! I think that despite the fact that you don't spend so much in here as you used to, you still feel the "pull" to come in from time to time, so you are a Mylot Freak. Great that you received your first payment a couple of months ago. It gives you a little lift that first time and an incentive to keep on posting, which is good. There is certainly a lot of knowledge and wisdom here for the taking too. I love Mylot. Brightest Blessings and thank you for your contribution, my friend.

Hello Darkwing,I am a new member of myLot. I found this website because of another site that told me all about it. So far it has been a great experience. I love all the features that the site has to offer and all the different things that you can do. I have sensed that alot of users on myLot really have come to enjoy this site. I have a feeling that I will grow to also become a frequent user of myLot.
@Darkwing (21588)

Welcome Blogger, as a Newbie Mylot Freak You see... you are addicted already and that's just to the features... you'll find as you make more and more friends, and learn much from them, you will become even more addicted. It grows on you! Brightest Blessings, my friend, and thank you for your contribution.

I've been here a little over a year myself, and it was by accident too that I found this place, or...was it?? Hehehe. I'm definitely a MyLot freak and I know I spend way too much time here when truth be told I could spend more time on my writing, or photography projects...but what can I say?? love it here--I love the people here, my friends and interacting with people from literally all over the world.

Probably not by accident my friend, no! I'm the same way; I just can't stay out of here for more than an hour before I'm back, and it's not as thought there's nothing else to be done. I agree your observations about friends... they're what makes the site, in the end. Brightest Blessings and thank you for your contribution, my friend. xx

I found myLot when I was looking for work at home opportunities. I learned right away that it was not going to make me vast sums of money, but I was on a rather downer, and meeting friends, learning new things, and even being able to help others lifted my spirits. I have been sad about the bickering and when people are not helpful, and on occasion I have lost money or posts, but I figure it goes with the territory. Yes, I am a myLot freak. I have been here for about seventeen months. I love myLot and I agree that there is not another site that is quite like it, and I am spoiled by it. Maybe I will have to go customize my profile again, sometime when there is more time. I think there are people on here who listen, and it is a good thing to do.
@Darkwing (21588)
19 Apr 08
Yes, the bickering gets me down a bit, but when I stop and think about it, there's far more love and caring than there is bickering, so it's best to keep one's mouth shut, ignore it, and get on with the matter in hand. They're not worth the heartache, my friend. I tried to change my music video on my profile today. The old one was still working fine, but when I put the new one in, it wouldn't show, or play. So, I don't know what went wrong there. Yes, there are people on here who listen... and they don't think you're being foolish, or paranoid. I love the ambiance here. Brightest Blessings and thank you for your contribution, my friend. x

Hi Darkwing! I think I am a mylot freak too. I admit I was inactive for awhile here but I did missed being here so much. I miss all my friends here, like you dear, who have been so close to my heart. I agree with you completely that everything here in mylot is unique. It was designed that is so convenient to use by us, members. And I guess what is special about mylot are the members here. There are so many good people here who became a part of my life, who are always willing to lend a helping hand and be a guiding light. I guess, that is why I became a mylot freak...the site itself and the members who are both unique and kind. Just my thoughts dear friend! Take care and have a nice day!

I am a relative newbie having only been here just over a month but loving every single minute of it. I don't know if I could be considered a 'freak' just yet - does that depend on how long you have been a member and/or how long you do it every day? I think I will probably become one as my BF is getting rather frustrated with the amount of time that I am on this computer. Yes, I think this is one of the best forums I have seen. I have joined others but haven't continued with them. I haven't found them as 'user friendly' as myLot. I also really like the people here and as you say that you can choose your own interests etc. I think it is easy to make friends within this community and on the whole I beleive most people are sincere and that what they type/say is what they think which is wonderful to see, honesty in these sort of forums isn't always the top of everyone's list. Thanks for sharing this with us Darkwing.

You may have only been here a month, my dear friend, but I would already call you a Mylot Freak because, in just over a month, you have a reputation of 94%, and you've not far to go, to reach a thousand posting points. Your love of the site and your friendship shows through, as you ardently support your Mylot friends, or me at least, and you post quality discussions and responses. I don't think I can call you a newbie any more, my friend... you're hooked!!! By the way, why don't you get your b/f to sign up on your referral? He'll help you, and realise why you're on the computer so much, when he feels the Mylot "pull" for himself. Brightest Blessings, my friend, and thank you for your valued contribution. xxx

Oh darn, I've been caught out. I thought I had escaped detection! Yes, I believe I'm a myLot Freak too. Just can't keep off it. Can you imagine this household if I got him on this, we would be fighting for this one and only computer to be on it, no, no I think I will leave him to do his jobs around the house, read the books, soak up the sun and sit in or by the pool. Just leave me the computer!!! It is just such a shame no one referred me they would be raking it in by now! I have referred one friend and she has posted 4 discussions and another friend isn't sure about joining and the other 3 haven't even bothered to respond to my email, so it will just have to be me! Yes, I do support my friends here and I believe they deserve more than just a one word response - a bit like you too! Thanks for your support and well wishes. I cherish the friends I have here, they are great. HUGS
