The value of friendship

To many of us (or should I say, to most of us) yesterday`s anouncement mylot made was a hard blow. Many of us don`t like to have rules changed anywhere, most of us want any change to be explained in advance, all of us want a say in what we are doing. For me, as I have said, this was a mayor earthquake. And I am not thinking about my $10 a mont (if). Ihave given here many reasons since yesterday, in many posts. But I have been moved by how friends have gathered and exchanged email address, how PMs have been full of personal interest. Many of us will not be able to spend a long time each day at a site that will not pay at all. We all have our needs and unfortunatly mylot forgot about its members needs. But we do have a time to talk to each other on FB or via mails to our personal friends. Whatever we think of this new mylot, we must always remember that it was a wonderful site where we met wonderful people from all around the world. This is a sort of goodbye. I will come once a day to say hi, or maybe once every 2 or 3 days. But I will keep me friends and my heart and house are open for them

A hug to you dear Marguicha. I am really going to miss the old My Lot. I don't think that My Lot is going to be the same again. For me too, this news was like a major earthquake, with the ground still shaking. I loved meeting up with you last year. At that time we never imagined something like this would occur did we. I have gone down with an awful cold today. I am glad that I have your email address. I will be staying in contact with you.

I'm going to bet that they have put too much time and money into the new myLot to go back...

They have put time and money, but no brains from what I can see. If you want something to work, you must discover what the community wants.

I`ll come by every 2 or 3 days and say hi to friends. And also to see who has stayed and what are they doing. Maybe mylot will think it over.

As this site is something that I have to learn to use again as it is completly different from the old one, and as all my friend are migrating to Bubblews, I am spending more time learning how to use the other side, complemented by two places in FB for mylotters.

I only found out this today was in raveling from Puerto Rico to New Mexico so was not contact with mylot. The is a sad day for all of us who have been here for a long time. I will send you my email by private message. This is so sad but I will come here at least once a day once I'm back from New Mexico which will be at the end of May! Take care

Maybe they are on the robotic era and will make a social site with no human members

I just answered dawn:" They have put time and money, but no brains from what I can see. If you want something to work, you must discover what the community wants." I have no intention of giving my work to them. I work for free at a site that gives rice to the hungry (freerice.com) not cents to the greedy.

Happy to see some "old" friends here - maybe we get used to this site, even if I miss the old layout. It could be nice to find the FB sites where some from myLot are gathering. Do you have the names of the sites?? I think we can use our imagination to combine myLot with our earning sites.. I am already using Facebook for posting articles from Expertscolumn there. Might get some readers here too.

I'm sorry to hear the changes are driving people away. I was myself shocked after being awol for some time to find things have RADICALLY changed here!! I commented on an earlier discussion about myLot needing a change in how it looked, not the earnings & other vital stuff on it. Did anyone get notified about this sooner? By the way, how do people exchange emails now that there doesn't seem to be a messaging system anymore?

Mylot went the way of the corporates but laid the ground work for many people to connect along the way. I am thankful for my delightful friends and will cherish the opportunity given me that led to our meeting. Truth be known, I wasn't making a lot of money here anyway but I did meet some incredible people. We should all keep in touch.

All of us who stayed back here are earning again. But I am missing those who have left and gone.

Same here, I will come once in 2-3 days too, considering how much I post, I also cannot get money, but also here is very fun talking to many people in every walks of life. I still love mylot!

Through my three years here I was not very active but I always come back as the atmosphere of selfless sharing, inspiring and concern among faceless mylotters throughout the globe is what I can't feel in FB. I am now missing the old set up and felt sad by the reduce/absence of activities of prominent members whom I always come across every-time I come to this site.

I was totally shocked to see these changes. I just logged in and was planning to spend my weekend here in Mylot but now I am having second thoughts. I may not have exchanged email addresses or contacts to people here at Mylot but I have to say that a lot of people here in Mylot, including you, marguicha, had inspired me, entertained and even kept me updated with the different events all around the world. I may check this site once in a while, but not as enthusiastic as I used to. I really hope to get in touch with a lot of people here in Mylot.
