I go in daily to look for the Tasks available. I choose the ones that interest me. I don't want to receive PMs telling me which Tasks to choose. I've got enough sense to do that on my own. I'm sorry if your Task doesn't interest me!!! Come up with a better Task!!! Anybody else having this problem??? How do you deal with it???

But LadyM, I'm BEGGING you, please, please, please. It's worth a whole PENNY! I got a few pm's in my inbox this morning too. Annoying isn't it? Like I can't decide for myself? Surely people realize that WE HAVE BRAiNS and can think for ourselves? Guess not. Anyway, I check them out because I have nothing else to do (HA!) and usually end up deleting the message. If it continues though, I'll end up deleting the 'friend'.

It's annoying as hell!!! YES, I resent that somebody thinks I'm stupid. I've skipped over this particular one for weeks. If I had wanted to earn a penny, I would have done it already. I'm sorry the friend wants to win a contest, but I'm NOT going to a scam site to help the friend!!! I've only ever deleted one friend & I hope this doesn't come to a deletion. I responded that I wasn't interested & to STOP sending me this type of message. If I get another, they WILL be deleted!!!

I have only gotten one of those so far and it had expired since I hadn't checked my mail in a few days. I don't really check the task out to much but it didn't bother me to much about getting one as a my private message. atleast if I needed help doing it I would have to just ask them for some help. I don't understand alot of the task so that is why I don't do them.

Yes, they are confusing because they are as clear as mud!!! I didn't like them at first. Now that I've done several of them, I enjoy doing them. I've learned which ones I want to do & which one I don't. I had skipped over the task in question on purpose. I receive a PM request to do the task. I go & look at it again & reach the same conclusion...it's NOT worth it!!! I don't think this person is sending PM's to people who do tasks. I think it goes out to everybody on their friends list. I helped this person when they were new & this is the thanks I get!!! I ignored the first PM thinking they'd notice I didn't do it & realize that I wasn't interested. I get another PM, so I think I'll just be straight forward & say STOP because I'm NOT interested. That's exactly what I did. Their response...another PM telling me why I MUST do their task. That's when I hit the delete button!!! If I were even remotely considering doing this task...I WON'T NOW!!! Simply because I was treated with disrespect when I sent my request. Actually, the ONLY thing this has to do with me doing tasks is their purpose for the PMs were for their own task. The person who sent the PM is rude & immature & stepped on my LAST nerve at the WRONG time!!! Oh yes, this person has NEVER joined in on one of my discussions either.

Oh I totally enjoyed making my 2 cents with that one!!! Yes, there's a lot of good things in there once you get used to them. My earnings have increased 4 fold thanks to tasks. Plus I get to choose when I feel like doing them & when I DON'T feel like doing them!!! Thank you Alice for helping me earn my 2 cents worth!!! They are a dynamite band!!!

Alice, I really appreciated that you sent the task to me, I tried to do it but it wouldn't let me do it so I am guessing it had expired. I have gotten one other task since answering this discussion from someone else. I am a bit slow when it comes to task and don't really know how to do them and it seems my brain disconnects when I need it to unscramble them..I wish they had a task tutorial helper that walks you through the whole task at least the first 3-5 times till a person gets the hang of it.

Hi LadyM, I don't do any tasks as I have far too much to do as it is, i have load of e-mail to wadd through and my other sites, just don't have the time, and most of the time there is no tasks to do so I'm not really bother about them. Tamara

I don't think it matters to this person whether you do tasks or not. My guess it was a general mail out to their friends list.

I have not had this personally happen to me yet but I am sure it will sooner or later. I would just ignore it if it happens to me but it is very annoying. I do know that much.

I DID ignore it (the first time). The second, I sent a return PM asking NOT to receive any more spam. With the third I hit the delete button!!!

I found a way to report the person when they sent PM's to me about doing their tasks. That is spamming. It is unsolicited and unwanted. I do not tolerate spam in the PM's. So check around and find a way to report the person. If enough people complain, the person will be banned. Then they can not spam us any more.

I get more pm's from new members who want me to join their sites. I read and delete. Didn't think myLot was a place to promote and push other sites. We can use our profile page to get the "word" out there about other ways to make money on the internet. I haven't had any pm's regarding tasks. I would delete also after reading and not respond. I have more than I can handle right now online.

I am guilty of sending a PM to close friends when I had a task running a couple of weeks ago. I know some of my friends then sent a PM to their own close friends suggesting the same thing but I have never, and nor would I, PM strangers on my list like some have done to me. I even got one when mine was up offereing a barter - you do mine I'll do yours! I didn't do it then and I shall not do it even now as there was a huge difference in the content of the task. I am not signing up for anything just to get more spam in my mail and a friend would not ask such a thing I'm sure. I apologise if anyone did receive PMs regarding my task and were offended by it and I thank one again all those that completed it. IMO it was a worthy cause with a worthy reward

Really? Gladly, I havent' had the same experience as you. That would be totally annoying. After all, once it is posted there, it is up for everyone to grab! With over 180,000 mylot members around, there is no reason to personally bug someone. I hope that there would be no more of this for you in the future. Have you tried sending them a PM in return to let them know how you feel about this? Maybe that would help them stop. if not, then I don't know how you can deal with them anymore. Good luck!

hi lady, Well i dont do any task here and only once i had in my message about a task which said if i joined a site ofcourse under him then i would get one cent. I found it funny why would i join a site just for a cent so i didnt even look for that task and ofcourse i didnt do it. That was the last mail in my inbox i got from any one on the mylot to do any task.

Don't take this personal as it was not directed at you. It probably was directed at the same person who sent you the PM. If it was only one time, I wouldn't say anything, but this person was sending me a PM every day demanding I do his task. I PM'd him back saying, please stop PMing me asking me to do your task. If I wanted to do your task, I would have already done it. He' PM'd back saying you HAVE to do my task. Then he followed that with another PM saying do my task. I found that to be very rude as well as annoying!!! Not only did I NOT have to do his task, I did NOT have to have him as a friend. He NEVER responded to any of my discussions & he demanded my attention. A penny just wasn't worth it!!!

Hi LM, that is awful fortunatley I don't have that problem but would feel as frustrated as you if I did, it isn't right for people to do that as you say you are quite able to choose which ones you want to do..LoLo

Yes, i so receive them also and it annoys me all the time. Like you do, I also do tasks but I also choose the tasks that interests me. I guess all of us do. And I hate that I get too excited to check my Inbox for some personal messages and end up receiving tasks which I really don't want to do. In the first place, if I want to do the task, I would rather visit the tab than checking my inbox.

i agree with you... i also don't like people to PM me and ask me to do their task... i have my own brain and i can make my decision which task i want to do without people dictating me... and the more people asked me to do something, the more i don't want to do it... it is called the repulsive effects... :-) take care and have a nice day...
