When I read other myloter posts, sometimes I've got so jealous to see how they can post those cute smileys in their post ^_^ I still have to reach about 400 posts to be able to use the copy paste function here at mylot. And sometimes when I'm loosing connection with my server, I hate to loose all the text I've typed before submitting it at the discussion post. So I have to type it again from the scratch. I know mylot use this regulation to prevent spam post from newbie, but it will be nice if newbie also allowed to use copy and paste in their post, as this will encourage them to post more discussion. In my opinion mylot got a good community control, so they don't have to worry so much about spammer. Spammer won't last long here, as they will son banned by other member reporting their abuse. What do you think about it, is it nice if newbie also allowed to make copy and paste ?

I believe that it is 500 posts unless mylot has changed it. I know that I was anxious to be able to copy and past but really have not done so since around my five hundredth post. Although I guess that's not true as I have copied and pasted links for information for people before, and in discussions I have started. I think that while it might be a nice treat for newbies to be able to post, I also think that it's even sweeter if they do have to wait, and those who might be tempted to game the system will soon be gone out of frustration or will still be here and with a renewed zest for being a member.

i think that it`s so good for them, with this option. There are people just like you that work harder till they will reach 500 posts, just because of that copy-paste job. They are motivated for thouse smileys too, but that will be accesible from 200 posts, as i know. When i was a newbie, i used to copy all that i`ve writed, because soemtimes my internet connexion was dawn, and it was so bad, even if i would write again all, it was quite good, that it was easier, to write again what i`ve already writed.

Haha, a few days ago i loosing my connection. It took my time to close all my browser, so i cannot responding all of discussions. I just check, and fix my connection perhaps this happen when my house so close with big building like apartment and mall. This make my signal loss, and building tools through my roof every 24 hours non-stop. Good luck for 500, keep posting with good quality.

It is a little frustrating because I can't put my usual smileys. But before I reach that number of posts, I resort to other ways of creating my own smileys like ^_^, _

Give yourself a lot of time and enjoy all these posting, you might reach to those number with no time. Believe me it will not make any different with funny face or not. most of Mylotters love to read all the good words. Good luck to you

Same feelings when i experience that 3 years ago. Its kinda annoying when you always lost what you type and the only solution is to copy and paste it. However i understand why mylot put this kind of preference because they want to prevent and get rid of those spammers and i agree with them. Way back then there are a lot of spammers copying someone's post and i am glad that mylot had get rid of it by putting this preferences. Anyway, just try to be patient, soon you will able to use copy and paste when you reach your 500 post.

It can be aggravating but believe it or not you'll be at 500 posts before you think you will. It really doesn't take long for them to start piling up. Just respond and post and you'll be copying and pasting before you know it. Welcome and Happy Mylotting!

Hi, I'm afraid mylot prohibit us to use that kind of software, and frankly I'm enjoying the discussion value here so I will not use that kind of software anyway. BTW, congrats on your 502 post.
