Malaysia
March 3, 2012 12:19am CST
I spend my free time here to socialize and discuss, i stop when i have other things to do, Everytime when i start a disussion, i Like to check on the responses and reply back but somehow, i also fall sick, sometime the internet connection are giving problem or i might be busy with other thing i didnt get to response quickly. So tell me, will my discussion likely to be remove if i fail to response immediately? I didnt read that in guidelines.. I asked this because i started a discussion and i suddenly got so many response on that discussion, and i may dont have time to response back to almost 50 responses... And that discussion was removed even the content was totally not violating mylot guidelines. And this happen after a "mylot police" send a reminder to me to quickly response to my discussion.

Hi cairalyssa there is no such rules here like we have to respond back immediately or if we fail to do that then our discussion would get deleted the discussion you started must surely have violated the rules and that's why it was deleted and mylot police what's that

Mylot police are those who try to show that they are senior, or better, to those who are new in mylot with very impolite way, and very anoyying. Like sending message to someone to be responsible to response on discussion created... When most mylotters will not bother to do this, only certain who like to be "police" have timr for things like that..

@ sajeevking: Sending a pm with incorrect information is not going to help her though is it? @ cairalyssa I find the term 'myLot police' to be extremely offensive and I suggest that you stop using it. There are users here who think that they are aware of what to do here when effectively they have misunderstood how many things work. If you read the advice that many of us give in the discussions rather than that recveived in certain PMs youmight see better results here too.

Hi cairalyssa, Respond to Discussion As long as I concern there' no rule that we had to respond/comment back to our discussion but will be nice if we do that. first, to build relationship to other lotters. Secondly, to increase our earning. Remember, good discussion happen when communication build between 2 or more people. If not, it gonna be boring ... Deleted Discussion The only way discussion being removed it because we violating guidelines. Even our discussion reported by someone but if our discussion not breaking guidelines, it will stay. When your discussion deleted, don't assume that you not breaking guidelines because deletion discussion must had reason (you need to read your notification)

Ah really, me I do reply to all responses as what I understand I get points in replying to responses on my discussion. It's a source of earning so I see to it that I always reply to all responses maybe not promptly bit in two or three days if I can't make it on the following day. I'm not aware however that it would be removed if we won't reply quickly or maybe too late.

You don't gain èpoinmts but you do gain earnings when you comment to those who respond on your discussions and to those who comment on your responses. It makes sense to respond to them too because, after all, myLot is a discussion site. Nothing is removed though if we don't reply and late is always better than never.

Hi cairalyssa, I don’t think ‘not replying’ is an offence and get punishment like deleting the topic. The deletion of your discussion may be on some other reasons. If it is not violated any rules then it may be a repeated topic (I have not seen the topic and can’t judge it in any way). When we prompt to reply to our respondents then we are making the same as a discussion. If we got busy with some other works then we can reply to them later too. Replying promptly may increase our earnings and that is the plus point, if you can particular on replying to your responses. However, there is no rule to reply quickly to the responses.

cairalyssa I think that you are getting your wires crossed and making a lot of confusion and that this topic is going to confuse others too. Did you check the notification for the deleted discussion? I am certain that it did not say that it was removed because you did not repond back - that is NOT a violation. If it was then half the discussions started here would have already been deleted What do you mean by 'a "mylot police" send a reminder to me to quickly response to my discussionì^ If you have people on your friend list who are giving you totally wrong information then that is not going to help you at all. Now to your question: when you ask a question to a group of friends offline, do you go away and come back later to hear what they have to say or do you stay and carry on the conversation when they respond to you? MyLot discussions are like conversations. You ask a question or state an opinion and others tell you how they feel about what you have said and expect you to comment to them. If you do they might comment back to you again too. If you comment back to them then your discussion will move forward and you will be earning when you comment. it will stay at the top of the lists if it has a lot of activity which could cause more responses to appear too. There is NO rule about commenting immediately but those who do certainly get some great topics going. It is entirely up to you whether you comment back at all but the sooner you do so then the more likely you are to receive more responses when you start your next topic. If others know that you comment then they are likely to respond because, after all, they are here to discuss

I try to respond to all discussions that I start even though not immediately but later on, this is because I find that it is not right to just start a discussion and then leave, somehow the discussion loses it meaning. It is always good to check what people are saying and any other concern that may need a follow up or an answer but I do not think it is part of policy. I have not heard about "Mylot Police" before.

There is no such thing as myLot police. It is a term used incorrectly by some users to describe others here whose behaviour they do not agree with

Hi caira, Nope, myLot don't just delete a discussion when you don't respond on them. I have seen a lot of old discussions that has no response from the discussion starters - but it was there for a long time. It is not a violation, but replying will be a good gesture on your part. Whenever you logon here, try to reply even a few of the responses you got. And answer some of them again when you come back another time. At least myLotters would not think that you are just ignoring the replies. Probably the reason why your discussion got deleted is because it has violated myLot guidelines, you never know you had. Maybe same discussion had been posted before. Like this one you posted now... I have read similar discussions like this, new members tend to ask if they must reply on responses to their discussion. If someone sees this and report it, it will then be deleted from myLot too. Otherwise it will be here with or without any reply.

When our discussion deleted, admin will send notification for it with reason why that discussion got deleted (through our email). So when someone telling us he/she got deleted discussion even he/she think not violate guidelines, he/she must be not read notification (or he/she late to receive notification)

Oh that answers why cairalyssa got no idea about the reason for deletion. I guess what you really need to do is to retrieve the login details of your email to check what's the violation. But as you have mentioned below the type of discussion you made, seems like Olleenz is right... you made a poll type question.. or a discussion that can be answerable by Yes or No.

I have hope I can reply all the responses in my discussion, for i think it is a polite way to treat other people's work, but i find that it is almost impossible to do that, so sometimes there are more than 15 responses for a discussion in a day. As i usually start one or two discussions in a day and spend less than half an hour in mylot everyday, so I do not have enough time to reply all the posts.

If yur discussions receive many responses then why not start by commenting to them and then post new topics later? Why do you have to start a new discussion before you have finished with the previous ones?

Why would mylot delete your discussion for not responding to some of your responses? I think it is not the reason why mylot deleted it. I myself don't have time to response back to other responses and mylot didn't deleted it.

In fact not responding is not a problem. It is our choice whether to respond or not though, as myLot is a discussion site, it makes sense to respond but it is our choice to do so or not and it is not cause for deletion if we don't.

Well, it is good to respond or give comments to responses in your discussion. This will start a real conversation if the one who responded is online too, like chatting. But if you failed to open your mylot account due to important reasons, it is just alright but you can do the responding later, besides commenting or responding can increase your earnings.

It might not be because of you not responding to all responses. It may be something else that made your discussion got deleted, I think. Check back your topic at that time.

Indeed it is definately NOT because she did not comment back to those who respond. That is not a violation. It is hoever respectful to comment back, evebn later if we are short of time, and of course we earn for doing so too.

There's no rule for comment back to our discussion. Since no rule for it, no violation if we didn't comment back to our discussion. It only cost us respect from other lotters (probably they didn't want involved in our discussion anymore)

I've been here for a few years now, on and off lately, but I've never heard of a mylot police. I don't think anyone would send a warning to respond into your own discussion, not even my close friends here do that. Unless something changed during my absence but that doesn't make sense at all because we are all here to socialize and also earn. No one forced us to start our own discussions and we shouldn't stressed ourselves trying to think of a proper response in every box. I'm with the others stating that the said discussion was deleted because of some content in it that violated the guideline because that is the only logical thing that would cause us our discussions.

It depends if you have all the time to do so.Nobody can blame you for not having enough time for this as you have other more important things to attend to.

I also prompt to comment back on my discussions. Because I know if we are doing comment back means communication with our friends and share our views also.

If I post a new discussion, I will try to respond to people who comment in a timely fashion. I do make an exception sometimes if someone posts a trivial response which some people do just to raise their count. Sometimes I might respond to one comment and not to another if the two comments are similar. I don't want to keep posting the same response. I am surprised to hear of your experience.

I do not I open a lot of discussion, however when I do, usually, I try to comment on any response from other users. However, it also happens to me sometimes that some of my discussions that apparently does not violate the guidelines of Mylot, are canceled. Even the comments are automatically deleted if the discussion to which you responded, it is removed. I read just once the guidelines and try to respect them and avoid writing opinions polls and more that go against the rules. Obviously I have not even read well enough.

If not promptly but when you have the time, it's always good to get a response to what you have said on a discussion...plus you do get paid for your participation here so the more you reply, respond & start discussions, the more you will earn
@SomeCowgirl (32254)

I am sure you've got everything answered for you, but the simple answer is that a normal discussion that does not violate guidelines will not be removed just because you hadn't gotten to all the responders. It just means you hadn't earned as much as you could have. Of course I don't get to all of my responders either.
