Why mylot why...

okay i've read some of you guys complain about mylot system. 1. can't paste before posting 500 2. can't edit after posting okay i hate it too but see the good side will you. i think that mylot teaches us to be creative and responsive rather than make a plan before posting. It's okay to made a mistake but correct your mistake more in your next posting. What do you think? Do you agree with my opninon? note: add me if you want to be my friend

Isn't the preview page there so you can preview then go back to fix a mistake? A spell checker would be nice to have though, but then again, I'm not complaining with what they have given us so far. I remember when there wasn't a preview.

You know what I agree with you because if they will allow newcomers to just copy paste in here, the website will be worthless because some people might use it only to have money. Regarding why there is no edit option is because the post are already counted and becomes part of our account balance so we can't edit it.

well it's like when were just a kid. it's forbidden for us to use calculator, because we can't never learn the mechanism of counting. by the time goes by, like when we were in college, calculator really can help us to count any kind of problem given to us. :)

Maybe you're right. It prompts us to make less errors, as once we post, it can't be deleted. But I don't agree with you on creative point. I'm very talkative and creative in myself:) but I do have to plan beforehand when I post something here. That's because I need to trim my sentences, else my long post will be 'blanked out'. Later I paste the 'corrected version' here. It's something which has no good explanation and I hope mylot will fix the bug. And.... 500 posts is nothing useful. I can paste in short steps already; and to my surprise, I found a guy had included a picture in his comment though he had made less than 50 posts by the time!!!

well the reason mylot put such rules out here is because of what u said now!! its coz they want some rules to be placed so that they neednt give too much money out!! and also to make sure we post as much as we can to reach 500 posts!! they are quite sneaky!! well i love mylot... here all we got to do is post some good quality posts and we do get paid!!

I never didn't complain about this not even when the rules change.I mean the first week I enjoy mylot still allowed to the people upload photo and cut-paste from the first day.After few days the rules changed...I remember 500 seems sooooooooo far.Today I have 1000 post.I enjoy upload photos but cut and post not always is easy.Take time and we don't must past everything but try write at once here.The mistakes not so important but the quality of the response.I read many post here with no mistakes but.....

i don't have much problem with not being allowed to paste before reaching 500 as it's a good system to back off the unserious members. but sometimes u have to write something really long and u don't want to post it "here and now" on mylot so u just opt to write it on word or something else on ur computer as u can later add or minus something u like(i hope u r geting my meaning). in such situations i miss that i can't paste as i would have to write it whole again,for being able to post here on mylot!:( and for the editing option i think mylot should really add it. it's natural to err, no problem, but when a mistake changes the whole meaning of ur reply (i did it in one of my earlier posts:$)then what will u do? of course one would like to edit it. as in the present condition we can only add a comment saying "oh i did a mistake there", i don't think it's good way to correct a mistake! editing option is present on all the other forums i have seen until now so mylot should consider it too.:)

Hi newbie. Let me say that you can copy & paste after 100 posts. I waited for that point standing to occur for that purpose. Anyhow have fun & happy posting. Im known as Grandpa Bob by a lot of my friends here. Im sending a friend request your way. Thanks again.

You know, at first I was a bit sad knowing I couldn't copy paste before I reach my posting of 500. Then when I have reached the posting of 500, I don't know what to copy paste. lol I think it's fair enough, that you couldn't copy paste until some certain postings. Also I don't have any objection about editing. Sometimes I feel a bit self conscious that I made a mistake, but then I just hope when people read my posting, they can get my point; instead of consentrating into looking at my miss spell or my grammar.
