During my stay here in mylot I can say that I have already made friends with some regulars here. Occasionally, I responded to their discussion in like manner they did to mine, there are those I am grateful for since they give significant fair ratings with my post, either giving a positive rate or giving me the best respond I am very much grateful for, honestly, there are people here I look up and admired in a way. How about you, have you manage to meet and have friends which you meet here in mylot ? Do you have fellow mylotters you look up to ? Just wanna know ..

I have a number of very close friends that I have made here. I have met three myLotters in the flesh, will meet another one next week and talk on the phone/Skype with several others. I admire many people here and I always say that in the depths of my depressive illness they were the ones that helped me through and the reason that I am here now.

Yes, there are those notable veterans of myLot that I sort of look up to. They've been in the site since it started and I really appreciate the thought that they did not leave the site even if there are a lot of earning sites that pay better than myLot. I see that they are the most sensible and create a lot of interesting discussions that you'd just wanna lose yourself in participating. Though there are some newbies who post nice discussion but I guess its something different and more personal when started by the 'oldies', more so if they are your myLot friends. I only have a few of them since I am a bit intimidated by sending a request. I know that they'll probably welcome the add but its sort of like a senior junior kinda thing.

I do look up to a lot of people om Mylot. Infact most people have been very nice and welcoming to me in the last few weeks. Yes I do find the long timers the best and they have helped me a lot. If we have problems they are always the first at hand. I try myself to welcome all the newbies to mylot too. I think it helps them get into the way of things. I do not think anyone might look up to me on here yet, but I hope maybe oneday they might.

I think there are two definitions of "oldies" or seasoned users here on mylot. There are those that have been members for a very long time; and those that have not been here as long but have been extremely proactive. There are definitely many things to be gained from interacting with both types. I have been a member for almost 2 and a half years now and it is only in the last few months that I have stepped up my activity. I sat on less than 1000 posts for the first two years but still interacted every now and then and also have witnessed many changes over that time. I don't know if there are mylotters that I look up to as such; but there are certainly many members that I deeply respect.

Two years is quite sometime, I've been following your discussions james but I cannot interact much for reasons that I have limited time here and sometimes, I simply couldnt say any word or two, let me just say this though that you are one of those also whom I have great respect with or to say... look up to.

Thank you for the compliment torchablazed. I too would like to respond to as many friends discussions as possible, but I can not always relate to every discussion each and every time either so I understand perfectly! Time is a factor for me as well. If I was to respond to all friends every day I think I would collapse from exhaustion! lol.

Same here my friend. I have met and made a handful of good friends around here. Imagine I did not even expect this will really happen. When I was a newbie, I was reading about people talking of having developed good friendship around and I was wondering how it could be possible. But now I have found it could really happen. I treasure these friends of mine because they are supportive of me and I'm also learning from them. I return the favor to them all the time to keep the relationship strong and healthy. I'm always excited to see new posts from them. I believe it is just a matter of learning to give support and not just expecting support in order to really gain good friends around. Indeed there are respectable friends you could meet and keep here at myLot.

I am sad to say that I don't really have made actual friends on MyLot. I have a lot of MyLot friends, but I don't think I can say I actually know them. But then again, I have taken a break from MyLot for a couple of months. I just try to respond to as much discussions as possible, without actually looking who posted the discussion. Although I must say that I go to the discussions that my friends started sometimes, and if there is something that interests me, I respond. :)

Yes I do look up to see whether they are still around. I still have them in my contact list. Sometimes one of them starts a new discussions and his or her post appears in my email. I am usually surprised because after quite a long time you don't assume that they will ever get back on this site. © ronaldinu 2008

I think most mylotters doesnt necessarily leave the site, they just rested for a while, then for whatever reasons they manage to come back.

Hi, friend. Just like you, I also look up to some mylotters here, the 'oldies' or the more experienced ones here in the community in particular. I feel that since they've been here first, I could learn a thing or two from them. But it's been quite some time since I've seen them here and I'm missing their discussions, I must say. I have a handful of friends here already and much as I'd like to respond to as many of their discussions on a regular basis, this just isn't possible. I've previously mentioned that I only rely on the company's computer for internet access so I have a limited surfing time. I have to abide by the company's regulation that surfing the net for personal purposes is prohibited during office hours. Because of this, I couldn't log in to myLot during weekends except in a few cases like today.

Its understandable, we have rules to keep in mind and that explains why other mylotters are not around too often, so true that friends here in mylot helps us a lot, I hope you can still manage to earn here more inspite of the circumstance your in.

[b]hi torchablazed! i definitely look up to some mylotters here who does the same thing to me just as what they do to you. some mylotters always answers my discussions nonstop and i appreciate them for doing so. they simply tell me they support me in any way by posting comments on the discussion that i start up. happy posting and happy mylotting![/b]

That's wonderful skbh, as you notice not all here have the priveledge to be responded to with certain number of response as compare to those who have many friends who supported them in their discussions, thank you for your respond and we be always grateful to those who does give their support !

Hello there my fellow mylotters! I am so glad I joined the mylot community. And I do look up to some people here, especially those who had already proven their worth in discussions and earnings while having fun. I like the atmosphere and the people here. I do hope I could make more friends here, not just being on the list of friends but true friends personally. Who would respond to my discussions whether he or she will agree or not on my opinion. LOL
• Philippines
13 Nov 08
Definitely you can manage as you go aong calyxus, just keep on requesting active mylotters and post something wherein most of the people can relate with, you can get into your goal here in mylot. The thing is respect and win more friends here.

Well over time, there are many people who have been members here. Some of these people even ones who have not been here as long as I have as well, I tend to look up at and gladly take the time to want to reply back to all of their Newer discussions I might have missed as well. Unfortunately there is a Big turn over here so some of the people here have left as well and it leaves a Void as well.

I can share same sentiment as you do KrauseHome, even for just a couple of months here, I do misses myotters who come and go from time to time, appreciate the response.

I have met new friends here in Mylot. Best thing here besides earning is having new friends that I totally admired. Most of my friends here are older people that really inspired me and help me a lot. I'm just a little sad that one of my friend here are not so active here anymore. I guessed his age hinder him from doing Mylot. I just hope that he's in good condition.
