Well, my problem is simple.. I have a terrible internet connection at home, so every time I want to post something at mylot, something seems to happen to my connection and after I click the orange "post" button, the page won't refresh anymore and it stays in the same reply page.. so, I reload the page and paste my response and click again in the button but the same thing happens, and then I check the discussion where I want to post and I see 2 or 3 replies from me with the same content.. I'm affraid that the moderators think that I'm a spammer or something like that, but I cannot delete the repeated post.. Does this happens to you people?

Grrr... that's bad. Other than that you got your account at stake. It never happens to me, because I have a very good internet connection so this makes me point the root of the problem to your internet connection. So all you can do to get rid of this problem and save your account is to change your internet connection. bourne

thanks for the advice bournecaindelta.. I must change my ISP as soon as I can, but right now it's impossible to me to do that.. at least for the next 5 months..

I know the feeling buddy. I too faced the problem some times and posted more than once a couple of times. Thank God I am not experiencing any problems these days. Changed my ISP and it is working well for me. Why dont you try that.

thanks for the advice.. I think that I wouldn't change my ISP for at leash 5 more months because I recently hire the services and a minimum of 6 months is required..

Hello.I am so sorry to hear this,I have this experience too,especially when I ccame to mylot at the beginning,I wanted to make a lot of posts,and I am anxious,then I picked the orange button again and again,but it didn't do,then I even angry,I didn't come to mylot for months,then I know that because my computer is relatively slow reaction,then I should wait for it automatly refresh,then it is OK,perhaps you have the same problem as mine,I wish this can bee usefull.

Hi kekexinfeg! thanks for your reply.. I know that if I wait good enough the page will refresh.. but as you said, I get anxious as you and can't wait for 5 or more minutes to do that.. it's frustrating.. at my work I don't have this problem..

My computer is not infected or anything like that.. I have a super computer protected with everything that the market have.. I know how to deal with viruses and I normally don't have any in my computer..

Well, there are many times that even with Higher Speed Internet access that this site has issues as well. It is not just your server probably as well. Just might be only a small part of it. Sometimes I think the problem could be if myLot is able to keep up with the Growth here to be able to have the page load like it should as well. Just my thoughts.

Thanks for sharing your opinion, I thing you are right.. maybe mylot must install some sort of load balancing system to keep up with the growth members..

dear i am using dsl and for the past two days we are having a tough time with it as the server is down in the whole city and they say that it will be done and running soon and we had never had a problem with the providers and they are very good in responding too. but when i was using dial-up it is a terrible thing to happen. all your hard work gets lost,it is really bad and i had developed a habit of copying all i have written on the internet before posting it on any site i used before. and now it helps and even if it happens, i will have all the work i had done. but it seldom happens now when i have upgraded to dsl. hope all this has a happy ending!!

Oh really that's very bad, you have to do something for it, if the problem just happen in mylot you must contact mylot but if the same problem when you're in another website, I think you must contact and search help from internet service provider.

I have experience that one too before. Not here though but on my friendster account. When i share my view to other members my messages failed. So i attempt several times and to my surprised. When i check there is a lot of response from me. It is annoying and i didnt like it at all. Glad that i didnt experience that anymore.

Oh, that stinks. It must be very frustrating. I've never had that kind of problem. I guess my connection is pretty good. Maybe you should check to see if your post was submitted before you resubmit it. I would copy and paste it into an email and send it to yourself. That way you always have a backup.

well, thanks for the advice.. the think is that if when I'm posting takes long time to refresh the page, when I'm trying to see the discussion will be the same.. If I post and I try to see the discussion and after that I try to post again it will be a never ending loop
