MyndDotter Management

Can I block Certain MyndDotters?

Yes. You can choose to block them entirely by never adding or by removing MyndDotters from your team. Or, you can hide MyndDotters instead of completely removing them. When you hide MyndDotters, you can remain on their Team without having to share any dots or data with them, or view their dots. They will not know you’ve hidden them.

First, remember that your dots will never be shared with any MyndDotter that you have not added to your Team. If you have added a MyndDotter, but no longer wish to share dots with them, you have 2 options:

Option 1: Remove MynDotters from Your Team
When you remove MyndDotters from your team, they will no longer see your dots in their Team Stream and you will no longer see their dots in yours. You will still remain on their Team; they won’t receive any notification when you remove them from yours. When removed MyndDotters share new dots with you, you will receive an invite to rate them.

Option 2: Block MyndDotters
If you want to prevent MyndDotters from sending you any new invites, you can block them. When you block MyndDotters, again you won’t see their dots and they won’t see yours. Unlike removed MyndDotters, blocked MyndDotters will not be able to send you new invites unless you unblock them.

Will MyndDotters know when I block them or remove them from my Team?

No. When you block MyndDotters or remove them from your Team, they won’t receive a notification. Your dots will simply disappear from their Dot Stream the same way they do when you delete them.

How do I add MyndDotters to my Team?

Go to My Team, then search for Mynddotters by username to add them to your team. You can add up to 150 MyndDotters.

What is my Team?

Your Team is your advisory board. If you need feedback from people you trust, add them to your MyndDotters’ Team and share your dots with them. They can rate and comment on your dots.

Why can I have a maximum of 150 members on my Team?

By limiting your team to 150 members, you make sure you get valuable feedback from people you trust, rather than indiscriminate advice from the internet as whole. This is what makes MyndDot different. When you carefully select your top 150, you can turn down the noise of public opinion and tune into feedback from those those know you best.
