do you feel inclined to want to change the way that website works? The past couple of days I have seen a few discussions on mylot about changing the way things work here. But, all of these discussions were started by newbies! What's up with that? If I go to a new site and I don't care for how it works, I move on to another site, I don't want to change it just because it doesn't meet my standards. What about you? Want to change things as soon as you get somewhere?

No, especially if I do not know how things are done, I am not sure what is wrong with some people but well, you are right, it will be time to move on to other site or to life if they do not like how things are done in here.

True, they should try things out for awhile, then either try to get things changed or move on to something else, like living

That is sort of a weird way to react to a new situation isn't it? I find I am a lot more adaptable than that. I find that the younger generation wants to change everything to their liking. They don't seem to like to expand and adapt as readily as people that have more experience in life. Now the reason for that could be because when we, the older generation, were younger we did try to change things to our liking and found out that adaptablity is better than change in a lot of situations.

That certainly could be. As a youngster I was busy trying to change the world to suit my liking. But, for the most part, the world didn't seem to care what I wanted changed, it just kept right on moving It is better to adapt

no website is perfect. No matter how much you like some place you are going to find something you see to fix about it and if they do it then someone will come along and complain about that. I don't normally want to change something unless I feel its important.

True, there are always things we might like to see different. But, I like to be on a site for awhile before I started yelling "CHANGE"

I think the newbies need to know how the system works here first before commenting on how they want things changed. But on the other hand, we must also embrace change, that's the only way we can improve a site. If their suggestion is to make mylot a better place, why not? I don't make efforts to change a site when I sign up for it. If it does not suit me, I move on to another site which does. Just like you.

I do not object to change, if it's a change for the better for a majority

There has been some changes done in this site and as of now, I think the site is just fine. I have checked out other sites and I think their set up is based on careful planning and consideration. Have a nice day

They made some changes to this site shortly after I joined, but it wasn't all that bad and I got used to them I agree, this site is working just fine and is a nice place to make friends and a few bucks as well

No I would not want to change it as I arrive. I would first find out what it is consists of and how well it can work for me. It seems as if these newbies has been reading bad report about this community so instead of finding out if it is true they come with changes immediately.

That could be, I'm sure that mylot is like any other site and there are people bashing the site somewhere. This is a very nice site, you get to interact with a lot of different people and they pay you for it

Hey fwidman! Just a word of warning! I love the new boot! I'll knock Rosekitty over for that one! Sssssh! Don't tell her! Anyway, don't they have some nerve! They are here for a minute and want to change our mylot! If they don't like it let them leave! No one is twisting their arms to stay! There are an awful lot of us here and we won't miss them so let them go out the way they came in! There's plenty of other sites if they don't want to be here so I don't get what the problem is and we get paid here! So get gone newbies who don't like our mylot!

You like them boots, eh? They look cute, but I bet they hurt like the dickens after wearing them longer than ten minutes I agree, take the time to figure out what's what before you want changes made. Otherwise, feel free to keep on surfing

I don't so much want to change it as I'd like to make some suggestions. I think the nature of the beast is to look at something and think we have to change it to meet our needs. If it's not broke, don't break it, or something like that.

As long as there are software engineers, the old adage about if it ain't broke don't fix it, will never work Ever notice that each new version of Windows works crummier than the previous one? I don't object to wanting to change a thing, but I think it best to at least stick around long enough to see if the thing works first The discussions I saw, those folks had a post count of less than fifty. One of them hadn't even made it to twenty yet and wanted to change things

Yes, I got the same feeling with you! I don't like to change things that seems not so possible. If I'm in that condition, I just move to another site, but I think mylot is just ok, if only the payment can be higher,lol.

I like to at least give a site a chance, maybe it's okay the way it is if I just spend a while on the site I will know. Yes, everyone wishes the payment was higher, but I am happy enough with that the way it is, since they pay me to have fun on here

I can take or leave things the way they are. I might be able to understand a new comers point of wanting to change things if he is used to better. And better is truely better. If your are making money to post things this might effect it as well. Some sites I have been to dont seem to warrant my time to return to more or less think about changing. :)

The night I signed up here I also signed up on another site that is similar to mylot. But, this one was easier to understand and to use. I have not gone back to the other site since the night I signed up

Hi fwidman, it doesnt bother me how another site works, how they have set it out is how they want it..so why try and ask for it to be changed...littleowl

I agree completely, littleowl It is their site, not mine and I have to assume that they know what they want.

I don't see anything wrong with new people or old timers saying what they like or they disklike in mylot. I think that is the way forward to make the site better and have more improvements. © ronaldinu 2008

I see nothing inherently wrong with people saying they would like to see a change or two, I just think they should at least be on a site long enough to see what works and what doesn't work

Hi fwidman, I think that I'm not that way.. I get used to the way that the page displays information, but I think that I need some time to get use to it and after a while, the information is always there in the same place and it's easy to find.. My first time here in MyLot I was lost, I don't know how to start or what to do, but now I think that I know the site pretty well

It almost always takes time to figure out a site, where things are and whatever. Took me awhile to figure out how to add an avatar here for instance. But, I am used to the place and would be lost if they changed things around on me

I have the right and expect it to be granted to me that any website I go to should function exactly how I think it should. Why should I have to spend any time adjusting to how it is set up? They should automatically adjust to my needs and wants if they expect to have my presence there.

I generally do not want to change anything when I first join a site. The odd time I may think it to myself. Especially the sites that are very confusing and hard to navigate around. But in those cases I just don't go back.

A site that is hard to navigate will not likely get me back either. I have better things to do than try and figure out how to navigate sites

Hi fwidman, I have been here on Mylot for just ove five months now and I don't think its needs any changes in here, I am quite happy the way ist is, in my view, if people don't like the way it is, they can go else where, why should Mylot change it just because the newbies don't like it? we like the way it is and long may it stays the way it is.
