Every time I try to copy paste some information mylot says "Inorder to help prevent spam, only users with a rating greater than 500 are allowed to paste, If your rating is greater than 500 and you still cannot paste logout and sign back in." Well! I dint understand what this rating greater than 500 means... I have a reputation of 94/100... is this my rating??? Im ranked 343 of 22982 in mylot... is this the rating??? then i should have been allowed to copy paste... What is the problem???

It's a bit confusing for the message to show only users with a rating greater than 500 are allowed to paste, when what it means is users with a post count of over 500. It would be simpler to say When you reach 501 posts you are allowed to copy and paste, as long as you don't violate the myLot guidelines. I do understand the reason for this rule. Some new users could try to cheat the system by copying posts from other sites, and some might use it to paste referral or affiliate links into their posts. These are both violations, but they are less easy to do without pasting. It's a great feeling when you do reach 500, and then you will know that you can be trusted to copy paste in your posts.

500 in the parenthesis by your name. That's the 500. So 500 posts. You have 341 right now, but need 159 more posts. It's because most people quit before they hit 500. I have many friends I have to delete that are less than 500. Esp. less than 100 usually quit. I hope you stay. Take care.

When your reply reach to 500 mark then you will able to copy and paste. Till then you have to write all messages with own.Right now you have reached to 339 posts so you are only 161post far from that mark .Spend some more time for some days you will reached to your 500 mark soon.
