Ever Wanted to Organize MyLot? - MyLot

Have you ever wanted to organize your friend's list on myLot or at least make it user friendly?? I find myself going there often to either find my favorite friend's discussion or to view who is on my friend's list, the gallery view they display it in is not only confusing but hard to go through, I think there are too many options there, perhaps if they were in a list view or with a more detailed option like when was the last time they responded to one of your discussions? What are you thoughts, am I being is just an organized freak (which is truly possible) or does anybody else have these view too (everyone rated +)

I've wanted to do that several times. It's just easier to find the users that I want too quickly instead of having to weed through others. I wish that option was available.

This is funny, I was just thinking that myself yesterday. I want to "weed out" some friends, ones that are sending tons of new discussions every day, never respond to the similest of my discussions, or are starting discussions that I totally disagree with the topics. It takes forever going through a page at a time figuring out who's doing what. I want more information but more easily organized - like to be able to sort by name or activity or really into it - when they last responded to one of my discussions. Admit though doesn't bother me enough to complain and will muddle through as best I can.

Perhaps we both love to be organized, good thoughts thou on both of our part, and like you, I would never complain to myLot, I would rather they do what they do and allow us to continue our discusssions. Thank you for responding

I've wanted to do that more than just once! It is annoying when you can't find the friends you want and moreover new friends always land up somewhere in the middle or the end of the list, it's not certain always so you have to go through all the pages if you want to turn the notify on/off. I have around close to 100 friends I think and I wonder how the ones with 200 or 300 manage!

It can be difficult for us that have in the 200 to 300 range (which is me), and when I want to see what my friend's discussions are that I enjoy the most it could take 30 minutes or so to find them. Thanks for responding

Your posts are always the one I answered because among those friends in my list three of you are posting topics regularly,I don't open mylot page direct,it is my mailbox,so I would not escape from what is in my mailbox before going to any other posts by the other members.for now about organizing friend's list,well I don't have any problem for now,maybe later.

To delete the spammers (and boy I have received them) you go to your friend's list and you have options to delete them, notify on or off, I always send the spammers an email telling them I don't appreciate the email and then I immediately delete them, unsure if they care, but it helps me. Thanks for sharing

I think there need to be more user friendly options as opposed to just accepting friends and having them added to our list. I do like the idea of maybe having them arranged in order of when they last responded to a discussion of ours and so on. It keeps things simple. I've gotten to the point where I'm a little more choosy about who I add to my list and who I deny. I don't see the point of adding people who's interests directly conflict with mine.

I would have to be able to organize my friends as well. I really only have a handful of friends that I make a point of commenting on their discussions all the time. I think I would even be happy with being able to list a ton 10 or something. I would like to be able to put all the people who haven't posted on MYLOT in ages on the last page too! Geesh...I could go on and on. LOL

Hi, yes I have wanted to reorganize my friends list on mylot and put it the way I want it and especially to the main friends that I contact regualarly. I do believe that you have a great discussion here as to why we should be able to organize our own mylot friends.

That would really be good if you could organize mylot. I think they kind of half way organize it. the other day I noticed that the one I don't hear from at all, Mylot has put them on my friends list first. check yours to see if I am right.

I have not done this kind of things up to now. I only go bck to the page from time to time to check who are my friends. and usually I will start reading the discussion started by my friends first. So, to be my frinds, they enjoy some priorities. :-).

I would love to be able to not only organize the list but also to be able to discussion only certain ones did at a time. For example if we have a top ten list for our friends. Be able to see discussions from those only. Sometimes going through the discussions my friends started is very time consuming because they are all just mixed in there.

I'm still new here and therefor not as many friends as you guys, but I have organized my friends, best responses, money and posts on a spread sheet. I update it if I go on, and, again when I leave. Then I've got a separate one for my friends, how many times they respond, which country male female and age

I always wanted to organize my friends list and other lists too...But i think thats something that we will be able to do later on down the road. I am sure mylot workers have already thought about some new stuff and just havent had the time or worry to do it.

I answered a discussion this morning about friends, not about organizing them, but in my response I said that I would like to be able to organize them in to categories. Like ones that I answer the most, ones that post to many (20+ a day)ones that I rarely ever answer, things like that. I would like to be able to add a headline to them also. Maybe mylot will here this request and grant it to us in one of the updates. :) It really takes so long to find them. Mylot apparently changed them again on how they are listed, they are now listed the first friends to the last. If that helps any.

It is so fustrating. I finally figured out how they are organized by the date they became your friend. Sometimes I am not quick on the draw. I would like to be able to put the people who respond to me and I respond to their decussions first. I have four pages of friends which is not alot but if I am looking for one and I have to scroll through if I can't remember exactly when they joined.

I have often wanted to organize my friends list. I wish we could. But, we cannot. I like the ones that I communicate the most with, on the first page and so forth. Also, divided into interests.

I have wanted this from the beginning and I have hoped that they would fix this, atleast put them in alphabetic order or something, now it is just a big mess..

I do not really organize my discussions, I just look under my "unsolved discussions" and solve the most I can. It's really rare to rate people with a (-) or (!).
