i was so excited to reach 200 way back then because i can use a lot of smiley's around..! when you can reach 100 or 200 posts you can already use the myLot code, as on my own doings, i do use them always.. instead of writing LOL, i will just put the myLot code for LOL, when i am angry also and confused... i observed that not all members here in myLot uses it in every topic or comments they do.. maybe they are tired to scan and just type it like hehehe and hahaha.. maybe it's very nice to look up to a comment with like this .. being happy always is very good.. how about you friends?? how often do you use them?? always or never?? t.y and t.c

Hi Jan! Depending upon the nature of the discussion and its contents, I use mylot codes. Sometimes, the internet does not function properly or the pages do not open, as quickly as one desires, in that case, I skip using mylot codes, I just want to submit my response, so that at least I could convey my thoughts on the topic. I feel that use of mylot codes makes a discussions/response/comment more lively and beautiful and it gives a better expression to one's response.

I know when I didn't have 200 posts yet, I was always excited to try and reach it. Of course when I did reach the 200 goals I did use the smileys alot. Now times I am not really using them much. However, I've tried to add more smileys to discussions now within the past week. It actually makes the response look more interesting to read. And of course, smileys are absolutely cute!

Hi janebeth, I seem to forget to use them but only use them when there is something very funny or following a tread, it is a good idea to make use of them. Tamara

Hello janebeth Well I love the smileys so I use them with every post I think, I worked hard to get to that point so I am using them every chance I get lol, they look really nice and some people use them in a way that it makes the post look so cool, when I try to do this it never works out as planned so I just put them where I think they should go and that suits me just fine

Hi janebeth, Congratulation for your 500th posts. So, you can use your copy and paste feature now. I always try to use the emoticons whenever required. That would make my posts be more lively. I used it to show my real thought about something. When I want to teased my friends, I will used it more so they will not misinterpret my messages and think that I am being rude to them.

HI janebeth Now, you see how I use myLot codes! I always use it at the beginning of my response to greet the discussion starter. I love the one! But I notice that we can't put more than 3 myLot codes in one posts. That's why sometimes I still type LOL instead of using LOL code.. think it's nice and the smiley, , and LOL can make rude statement looks more friendly and just kidding. Its' ver useful to be used in discussion when the situation start getting hot because some disagreement appear and sometimes I see certain member argue with each other. Always use it!

Lol.. i was wondering how to put an emoticon. I have yet to reach the minimum to be able to put those. Seems that i have to participate more. I would gladly use those to express myself especially since we are not able to see one another. Cheers

Hi I was so much excited to see those smilies in some discussions. So when I saw mylot code, I tried to press it, but I got the message that I should reach 200 to use them. So I am waiting for my 200 because I am fond of using them. Even in the sma I send I use them

i use the mylot code more often now that i used too. indeed, a single emoticon can say a lot that you probably can't with words. plus, it offers a nice little touch to your posts to make it more interesting or catch others' attention. so, it helps if you want to generate more responses

Hi janebeth, I like using the mylot codes in every of my post here. A post without any mylot code looks rather plain. I always use it to the maximum. Yeah, I use all the desirable 3. Sometimes I feel it's not enough for me just to insert 3 in my post If I type the post in a hurry if I'm really busy with my household chore or my office work then, I use only one or totally without any for the sake of time. If I find 3 is still not satisfied, I would like to use the abbr like lol, :D, (sigh) and etc to make my post more expressive Happy posting

Hi Janebeth. I love using the smiley and mylot codes.. I was glad when I reached the required limit to be able to add mylot codes to my responses. I think apart than making your response colorful and entertaining, the smileys also add emotions to the responses.. So I use them whenever possible and whenever they are required. However I refrain from using them if they are not required, otherwise the discussion looks very untidy. Anyways I love using the mylot codes...

Hi jane. Once we reach 200 posts, that's the only time we can use mylot codes, it will not appear in the response or comment page if we are under 200. Once available, mylot codes can only be used upto 3 times only in each post, that's the maximum. I use mylot codes most of the time, if emotion is available with my emotion at he mylot codes. But I only use the codes if I am using a computer. If away from computer and I am posting from my phone, I usually do not use codes, just like this, as it will take time for me to type each codes.

Hello janebeth. Nice topic! i am also an avid fan of these codes so as not to waste it and to fully express myself through the icons. I always use them even the bold, italicized and underline codes. They are too pleasant to see and makes an edge to most of our comments. It can highlight the words that we always use and helps you express yourself more. I just love it and would keep on using this codes forever.

i have been wondering what his mylot code is about. until i have tried just an hour ago and found out it was smileys. i have been wondering how some are able to add smileys in their postings. so there was the source of the smileys. and i like to use that too if i feel the need.

I sue the smileys all the time. I think they are a good expression of the way we feel, without typing them out. I am kind of lazy that way, and if I can put in a smiley I will. The thing of it is, I never started using them until I got to 1000 posts, as I forgot to use them before that. I am glad that I finally did start using them though, as in here, they are my helpers. they are so much fun to use. Good luck to you and happy mylotting.
