How do these people who have under 500 points manage to copy and paste. When I was new and tried it myLot system would not accept it. How do they get past the system?? I am really curious?.

Well they shouldn't be able to so I really don't know and if you see them do it I hope you are reporting them as they are going against the Rules

I certainly do and I check their profile for their previous responses and 99% of them are also copy/paste so I report them as well. The rest of us had to get to 500 points the hard way.

I'd love to know that, as well as other things. Like how come when I post, my number goes down instead of up (as in the # of posts)? Isn't that weird? myLot tried to explain it, but it doesn't make sense to me. I'd also like to know that how come when you respond to a post or "!" a post, you get taken back to the beginning of the post? Why doesn't it take you back to where you left off? How come there isn't a way for it to be easier to find where you posted? Sometimes when I post, I like to see if I get a response. It would be so much easier if you could just do a search for your username or something and then be able to find it. Gee, all these ideas and I've only been on here for about a week or two.

I love the idea of being able to check on a response you have made. Thanks (+)

I'm not sure how people are doing it now. I know a couple of weeks ago you could copy and paste if you used Mosilla Firefox. But mylot made some changes and that stopped. Some ding bat posted all about how he was able to copy and paste using it. I reported him and was delighted when 4 days later mylot made a few changes. There will probably be another ding dong that will turn themselves in by posting how they do it right here in this discusion...lol I admit I did copy and paste a link before 500 on using Firefox to see if it worked. I also let mylot know I did that just to see if it did work....hehehe. I try to be honest no matter how tempting it is. So, lets just see if someone confesses.

my girlfriend tried to paste a link and i told her she wouldn't be able to until she hit 500. now i know why she was able to prove me wrong. i use firefox exclusively and have never noticed. i still got messages every now and then saying i couldn't paste when i wasn't even trying to. sometimes i'd hit post comment and my screen would go blank and say i couldn't paste and then i'd have to type it all over again

i tried it out to see if copy and paste works before 500 posts, but mine wouldn't, it does work now but i don't ever use copy and paste because i know it's against the rules and i wouldn't like to be banned from here, plus i think it's a waste of time, i like to use my own words in discussions and responses, it gets my brain thinking, lol! :)

Beats me, because I still can't copy and paste. I wish I could though sometimes it would make things a lot simpler.

I think that it is impossible. The only way to copy - paste is to copy just 499 symbols :D If they are doing somethin illegally they will take the responsebility. Good luck !

Don't you read your messages?? It became possible a couple weeks ago. people with 500+ can copy/paste, but didn't know that under could do that. they're probably coping it to somewhere else and then just typing it!

Don't you read the topic?????It is obvious I am aware that people with 500+ can copy/paste. This topic is referring to people that do NOT type their responses but PASTE them directly to the response. Duh!

Someone said that they are using some sort of java blocking method. They said anyone can do it if they know just how to set their browser just right. BTW I am answering this from my email, so don't think I am a dork if the answer has arleady been posted. LOL

I also tried it when my points is less than 500 and an error message keeps appearing. That's why i worked hard to reach the 500 mark. If what you have said is true then this people should be reported to mylot admin. I can't think of any reason for them to copy paste since the guidelines states that only users who have achieve 500 points have the privilege to do this. Maybe there is a glitch in the program. In any case i think they should be reported.

I would like to know that too. I have been trying to copy a url from my browser and paste it into a post but it won't let me so I don't understand how other people are able to do it.
