I wish MyLot will show online status for their members

Wouldn't it be nice if you know who among your friends are online? Would you like this to happen here in myLot?

Actually, no... for me, I would absolutely not want my online status to be visible. Most places where that is possible, I always have myself set away or invisible, whatever is offered. I like to balance where I spend my time and who I interact with. I think having online status at myLot would be very problematic. As it now, people try to spam us through friend requests and private messaging to push their newest "get rich quick scheme" and I'm just not interested. I truthfully don't want people sending me messages because they can see I am online, hoping to get me to sign up right away as their referral somewhere or do something for them that is ultimately intended to make them money. I'm pretty busy trying to make a living at the things I already do

I heard you too, Thinkingoutloud, and by the way, I used to have a blog by that name. I honestly didn't think about the spammers here. Alright, alright, I'm convinced. I take back what I said. I don't wanna visible here on myLot anymore.

That would be a nice thing but it is really not needed to say the least. There is a difference between being online, and being "online". Technically I am online for the vast majority of the day, but at the same time, I really doing things that are online a lot of the time. Still I think that it would be useful for some people. So yeah it is one of those things that it would not help too much for me but it certainly would not hurt. I think that those who will not use it, will just not really utilize it. Those who would use it, I am sure will find it extremely useful. Therefore, it would be a great idea for some people for sure. Certainly could not hurt all that much. An intriguing idea to be for certain.

You've got a point, Mega. Maybe I was just thinking that if you are working online and you have your status shown then you might be open for more opportunities when something comes up.

Hi Yogesh, I haven't changed my gender and no plan at all. LOL! @Life, of course there's a way but you will only find out when you are discussing. Sometimes you need to know who's available at the moment without without having to knock at each door.
