Has myLot become mature?

Yes, I am all right and so is my question. Okay, I was just giving a glimpse throught the historical 1 digit posts of myLot and I was shocked to see that the posts were really immature. For example - http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/10.aspx He has not explained about anything there. You can give a glimpse through those memoirs by replacing the number 10 in that URL with other numbers. All those discussions are one-liners and really immature. Now, I can find a whole lot of worthwhile discussions at least about 1 or 2 per 5 minutes.

Its better not to write anything unless you know about it and try to describe what you want to say. I don't think that mylot is becoming mature. Because the world is getting more information, more news and sites are coming everyday. So, mylot gets more to follow.

The 'discussion' was obviously posted by someone who thought that MyLot was Craigslist. The responses to it are, if anything, even more immature. These days, most such discussions get deleted in short order. Personally, I would question the maturity of the people who post many discussions, including those about the maturity or otherwise of other discussions.

Mylot has reached its maturity as we rarely see this sort of nonsensical post being aired here now. That discussion was 4 years old and if I were to compare my discussions then and now, I think I will be mocked for posting a poor quality discussion. But I have grown up with mylot through the years and have polished my writings to meet the present requirements of an international audience.

Oh my gosh!it was really short.owlings is correct, it is just similar to craiglist.it has been four years ago.and maybe that time members are not yet concerned with the length of the discussion.if we are going to take a look at the starter of the discussion, he was just a newbie.when i was also a newbie,i just post very short, i can also say i am also an immature poster that time.but this time i can make one to two paragraphs.members of this site really grows.this really a great site to learn how to right.happy mylotting!see you around

i think so... i can hardly find a one line discussion here anymore and the content of the discussion also had improved a lot since i joined mylot over 5 years ago... so i can say that mylot has made huge improvement over the time and i love it... take care and have a nice day...

The discussion you have found is nothing more then a way of getting backlinks to his own site. That's what a lot of people used Mylot for when it just started. Sometimes they still do, but now it's more supervised. So yes, I think Mylot has matured, but not only Mylot, the biggest part of their users too. Have a great day

i believe that most members now, especially those who are here for years are mature enough with their discussions. but you can also think that even those who are old timers, do sometimes posts immature topics. anyway, it can still be a healthy discussion when members respond to ask for clarification and the original poster clarifies the issue.

Mature could be happens now and in the foreseeable future, if we can create quality and quantity of the discussion which will be more meaningful and more alive. After I realized if I remember when I joined I often make mistakes and I'll try my best to improve the quality of this long latent within me.

Hello kar, I have encountered on mylotter who has actually been here for almost four to five years. he told me that before you can earn in mylot for 5 to 10 dollars in just two hours and it was almost treated like a usual forum. things started changing slowly of course. when i was here back in 2008, you can even make a discussion and counted as a post with out any response, but when many people did that they change the system. then the rating was reduced because they're so many neg raters who abused the system so they limited it. I believe mylot has matured. No Trolls can survived here.

I don't know that we can say that mylot has become more mature. I think, instead, that the admin has become a lot better in the time since mylot was founded. I see plenty of one line discussions on here on a daily basis, but those also disappear almost as quickly as they appear. I do, also, observe that there are a lot of discussions that are well worth my time. In fact, there are times that I wish I could find more hours in the day so I could respond to more wonderful discussions.
