MyLot should have an editing function for you in your own discussions!!

I think the platform for MyLot should include a way for each member to edit their discussion list. By this I mean we should be able to delete discussions that we find have no response after say, maybe a month? We should be able to edit out responses that are offensive to us as individual discussion starters. I find I have many one or two worded responses that are basically meaningless. There are also responses that are really offensive to the sensibilities. I don't know if posting this will have any effect or if any one from myLot can answer why we can't have this. But it's worth a shot.

The problem with being able to delete messages is that it only promotes bias on the site. People complain enough about people not responding to things they don't agree with/find offensive, imagine the uproar if things could be deleted! If the responses are meaningless, you can report them as abuse. Not contributing to a discussion and just posting meaningless spam is against the site's rules, after all. As for ones that are offensive... everyone's entitled to their opinion. I wish we could edit things, personally. I'm always finding little typoes and things I've forgotten in my own discussions!

As far as typos go, I think that is why we have a preview function, but I don't think it is always working the way it should.

No it isn't, and it's still easy to miss little things. Or to later think of another point you wanted to make.

I agree about being able to edit. I am not sure about deleting unless there are no responses as you stated. I don't think we should be able to delete any responses because if you delete it then that person's numbers go down and in the end you would have people deleteing responses just to lower the number of people they are mad at.

I think so too, but the user agreement states that only myLot has authority to manage content

Maybe MyLot should delete discussions such and such old after they have been paid for.

I find that only to denounce he does not advance, therefore what I think I can be different of whom mylot thinks, however I must also understand that if we podessemos to modify, all I would erase the answers that do not please. E thus would leave of being an opinion.

That's right. But I am not saying one should or would delete all that don't please. Some just are extremely offensive.

Acho que só denunciar não adianta, pois o que eu penso pode ser diferente do que o mylot pensa, porém devemos entender também que se podessemos alterar, todos apagariam as respostas que não agrada. E assim deixaria de ser uma opinião.

I didn't mean editing other people's responses. But you should be able to block people who say offensive or useless things to you. If you delete them it would change the scores. You just need to block them. Wish we could.

I totally agree with you, and I am sure that everyone else will also agree with you. This would be a good addition to make. Lets wait and see what happens.

That sounds like a good idea. I have some posts that I made when I was new that got no responses, but might if I reworded them, or started them today. I do not want to start the same one over again and duplicate. I get a few of those odd responses that are really out there, and I do not know what they relate to. I would be glad to dispose of them, too.

Ideally, it would only be available before you post your subject for the first time, in other words for proofreading. As far as misusing it to erase offensive responses, I saw another suggestion post that said perhaps a blocking function should be provided to block users who make comments that one finds offensive. That way you would be the one to block what you yourself find offensive, without endangering others scores by erasing their entries.

I feel that the editing features would be included in mylot platform soon, for better convenience.

yes, you are quite right. Sometimes people do make mistakes and that cannot be avoided. I did missed out a word or two in one particular discussion and I went back to edit the discussion. After looking through the page, i can't even see an edit button so I just left it there. All I hoped was that people can still understand what you were trying to say even though the sentence doesnt make much sense to you. I wish they will take this message on board and look at it carefully so this community can enjoy a better website like this.

I agree that it should but mylot seems to want to build up their site by creating more pages although they do delete pointless and low quality responses once you report them. It's just that those people posting one word responses are interested in earning more than in really putting alot of efforts into their response. I find that asking some questions prompt a simple yes or no answer without elaboration and try my best to avoid them.

I agree, I would also like to see an edit option for comments you make.
