Here are a few features, that I feel are essential for a user, but are presently missing on myLot : 1) 'Edit the post' feature. 2) Spell Check. 3) Copy and Paste feature (for users

I would like to be able to see why someone wants to be my friend when they make a request. I would like to be able to choose some friends and have them in a best friends section so I can find them easier. I would like people to remember we are here for fun not just to make money, and stop the millionand one discussions about how toearn more, will we be paid and how much did you get, maybe there should be a frequently asked questions section in the guidelines. Spell check would be a help and would helpcut out the abbreviations that no-one understands.

haha! You, for sure know how to give words to your frustation! Yes, freinds list needs to be organised. That is yet another point, that has been observed by many members here. Spell check will help too. And dont worry, I dont think someone, who is here for 'just money', will have a long stay here; for a simple reason, that one just cant make enough money here! But, he can surely console himself in company of some good friends!

Firs of all I desparetly want the edit facility. I have never seen a forum without edit button. The edit button is really helpful. Then I definitely want spell check facility. As here in mylot there are people from all over the world writing good English is not easy for every one. Spell check will help a lot to improve the quality of English.

I would like to see my posts nct to my photo - so I know how many I have without having to go to my profile. I also think that maybe they should put a date on the questions being asked I hate responding to stuff that is 3 months old.

Yes, it would be good to see the number of post next to the profile pic. In fact, I have seen lot of members complaning about that. As for the date, I think they should it in next to the discusion, once we open it. However, it would be better if we can see it in the front page itself. Thank you for responding.

since im a newbie here I think a tour for new people would be an asset I find it hard to navigate the site Also I think we should be able to use cut and paste because i answer mostly Bible questions and like to back up with scripture and dont want to use the wrong words it is much easier to paste directly from scripture I am on several other answer sites that allow it and it is much easier when allowed! why only after 500 what difference does that make a good answer is wanted on the first oneisnt it? also they could update your earnings faster!

firstly i would like mylot to incorporate the star ratings and number of posts(i wonder why they removed it)besides our names the moment we sign in. secondly i would want mylot to organise the discussions....i mean too many discussions on the same topic should not be allowed to start. thirdly if a person has been there on mylot for more than two hours should be warned to leave immediately else his earnings would be taken away.........ha ha !jss kidding(i tend to waste my time often here...sob!sob! but its pleasure..site is good)

I would want to see a chat area between members of mylot.Just a small window would do at the side of this page so we can chat with each other and see who's online in that way we can all be friends. And maybe we can also pimp our site like friendster and myspace.

I think, one user has managed to have a lil chat room for himself on myLot. I am not sure if its a chat room or not, it looks like one. I am not ble to remebr his name, that one with had moving sakes in his pic - is that chat room in his profile page? Anyone got an idea about that? If so, please let me know about the same. Thank you.

With regard to your suggestion here is my opinion 1. Edit the posts (your own posts) yes. 2. No I have spell check on my toolbar. 3. No (you are saying less than 500 points) you have to earn your way to the 500 points by typing all your own postings and responses. 4. No. Guidelines are already available. My suggestions: 1. Explanation why your points have dropped. 2. What caused your star rating to drop. 3. A table showing how payments are calculated. 4. Explanation of why discussion was deleted. 5. Approving a new friend you can turn on the notifier. 6. Explanation of how your friends are listed. 7. When responding to a friend's discussion not to go straight to the response box but just to the discussion so you can see what has already been posted. 8. BRING BACK our points next to our not only when you check you profile or post a response. That's enough for now probably could come up with more but I'm sure other responses will give more (item #7. I haven't seen them yet.)

Good list so far, but I can see #1 not happening at all, and here is why I see it that way. What if a person writes a big and good discussion, gets paid for it, then in a sense edit's it, to just a word. He/she already got paid. The they can just redo the same post over and over... in a sense, cheating the system, and cheating all the legit users out of money. So editing a post will never in my eyes be available to posts that allow you to make money from that post. just my 2c.

Thats an interesting obesrvation, and quite creative too! I think, a better solution could be, myLot can formally 'close' a discusiion, after say three days. One it gets closed, it can be sealed permanetly. And the earnings too can have a 'running three day difference'. What say?

I would like an actual time stamp on the discussions not just where it says the actual date and time the conversation was started and replied to not just saying it was 12 hours ago etc... I would also like there to be a way that you can find your own replies to discussions without having to go through 100 other replies to find yours.

Get rid of members you are harrasing others and those who are always putting out one liner for discussions and posts. I really hate that. I would also like them to organixe the friends section better; right now it is in no order and you have to go through each one to make sure they are on notify. Thats another thing; they should have notify as a option right of the bat.

I think we should have a option of choosing a thumbnail view or list view of the topics that are of interest to me. There the categories should be able to be sorted in alphabetical order.

Well, I dont want to piss them off cos I really really love myLot. But there are some things that I wish they'd think about. First, not changing the features we already had everytime they change the site. That is like not having our rating shown with our Avatar. We had it now we dont. Other very important one which I have been discussing earlier also, getting emails on our personal email box when myloters answer our responses to other persons' discussions. We had this also at the very beginning. Spell check is also cool. We had it on and off but now we dont. I am not requesting for earnings calculation system cos, it is not my first priority on myLot. So, its nice of you to start this type of discussion and I appreciate it very much. Hope myLot will go through the suggestions and try to introduce at least the features we had earlier, even one at a time.

Hi there, how are you. Yes I agree with you, all your points should be taken into consideration, specially spelling checker and editing, as soon as possible because it wastes lot of time. I would also like to add that mylot should clearly mention, how much they will pay us for starting a discussion, replying of discussion, loading of photo, comments that we do....what if we reply to discussion which were started few months ago. These points are confusing people so they should be laid down systematically in form of a table of chart. Hope you agree with me.Have a nice day.

I would like to get a respone to emails sent to Management. Then a timely response. Would like any limits stated in the guidelines, It appears that I have found a limit to the number of pictures you can use. Need to be able to go find in a discussion where I responded without scrolling though several pages. Would like the discussions that the best response is selected made into closed ones. These are about it from me to add to your list! Thanks for this and hope it actually gets addressed!

I would definately like the option to edit or delete my posts. Unce I managed to post the same thing twice, and it just looked really stupid, and like I was trying to "cheat", which was not the case at all. Also it would be nice to add photos to a discussion, as I often do this from work, but any photos I wish to add are on my PC at home. I would also like to know exactly HOW we get paid, )how many posts, what content etc), and I would like the friends pages to be organised better (in alphabetical order perhaps), so it is easier to find people.
