The End Of The Month Is Here

And now we are all trying to hurry and get all of our Discussions answered with Best Responses chosen, and posting enough to other peoples discussions just so that we make sure we can Cash out for June. Who can really believe it is the end of June already? Where is the yr. going. But here I am realizing it is the end of the month again, so I need to make sure and go and resolve some more of my unresolved discussions. I actually have a lot of them still unresolved, and it will take me a while to get them all resolved. What I wonder is where could be the Best place to start? If you are behind like I am, and hand out Best Responses, where do you begin to start when you are behind? And do you always make sure the person is still active when deciding who to give the Best Response too?

I'm in the same boat and really need to do mine - I don't usually get behind but have this month because of the move and all. I like to keep 7-10 unresolved discussions so I just start with the second page of unresolved and work backwards from there. Will be doing that shortly. Some people may not like this but I usually end up giving best responses to my friends (I know they are active already). There are a few times that a response from someone else will really jump out at me but for the most part I get 99.9% great responses so it takes me forever to decide. Most times I will just say ok I gave them BR on the last discussion so give it to someone else - that way they get spread around. I do keep a list of my discussions and who I gave BR to.

I think I still have a lot to learn with mylot. I actually don't know what to expect at the end of the month except for the pay out. What is it with unresolved discussion? I have no idea about this thing. All I know is to just respond and discuss and give postive ratings and best responses to those who I think deserve it. As for the rest, I am at a loss.

Well, unresolved discussions are discussions like this that I have started where I have not taken the time yet to give out a Best Response. As I have started a lot of different discussions it is a Good thing to go in and rate each one of them if you can, and then choose who you feel gave the Best response, and give them a Notification by doing so. It really is nice when you give these out and someone takes time to acknowledge it. Makes you feel like it was worthwhile to do so.

Hello,krausehomw,time has really passed so quickly and i have been here for 5 months already,i cannot believe i have more than 4000 posts. I have a lot of unresolved discussions because i am not able to choose the best response,the discussions will become unresolved again soon after i have pickedthe best response,It is a glitch in mylot and many members also suffer from the glitch as well.

Oh, I know what you mean by that. Especially once that person is no longer an Active part of the myLot Community. So I have wondered what to do when it keeps on being removed and the person has left a Thanks for Best Response. Just ignore it, and move on or pick another response?

It is here isn't in. I am trying my best to qualify for payout to. I have just above four dollars and i need to make 6 dollars in less than 2 days. I don't know if it is possible but i am really trying my best to achieve that. But one question though, does choosing the best response from the discussions I have started also earn me money here at mylot?

I don't even think about it, I haven't made payout in 2 months. I am not even up to $4 yet. I haven't had that much time to be on here. I do like to check in every now and then.

Where I start is usually from the oldest discussion and work my way forward, although if I don't have a best response in mind when I read through them, I skip over them and come back later. Also, depending on how much time I have to go through them, I may have to come back to some of them later, especially ones where I am debating between more than one answer for best response. I had never thought about checking to be sure that the best response went to an active member, although that makes sense. I would hate to think that I gave out my best responses to members who aren't even here anymore. I wouldn't give it to someone else based only on being active though, unless they had a really good response too. I wouldn't want to give best response to a low quality response either.

true, the end of the month is almost at its end. :) i increased my minimum pay-out (from $10 in previous pay-out) to $25 and i'm about $3 short with only a few days left... so i wonder if i could reach pay-out this time. i may have about a dozen unresolved discussions and might begin handing out the BRs tomorrow. you know what... i never thought of making sure the person i've chosen for the BR is still active or not... i just hand it away to the response and not really looking at the user to keep objectivity in mind. hmmn, since you've mentioned it, i might just check if they are still active... it will minimize the occurence of resolved discussions coming back unresolved. :) thanks! as to where to start, i usually look for discussions which have no activity for at least 2 weeks. since i only have 2 pages of unresolved discussions, i will begin at the bottom of the first page... goodluck with resolving your discussions and handing out BRs! :)

well im just confused, i think we shld decide best responses, within a week, not to keep pending till month end. as i did, i almost choose best response for my discussions on every saturday/sunday.

Its nice to come in here and see what the new hot topics are..and see what everyone is talking about...I truly look at many factors when deciding on that. I look at how much time went into it, how informative was it? did it spark some special point or go beyond all other posts I try to look at all that but sometimes....I ike to surprise people and give them one right away, sort of like a gift....

It's funny I never thought of this. Catching up to make payout. I am packing and stop in a few times. I am finding it very slow. My mail box is empty because everyone is doing other this. I will not be digging through posts to make payout. I am up to $25 and change now. If anything I may just increase payout to the next amount. That is if I don't think of something to use it for . Thanks

Oh yes my friend the days are going by so fast. Before you know it the summer will be gone. And winter upon us. I try to keep up with my best response and unresolved ones. I do have some unresolved ones but Im not going to worry about them. No I dont always check to see if the person is still active thats good advice. Enjoy the rest of your summer!

I usually start at the bottom of the list and go from there. another way would be to do those with the fewest responses first. I don't check to see if the reponder is active because I usually take a sunday or monday and get them all done for the week.

I usually try to keep up with my unresolved discussions. I go to that catagory once a week and see if I feel the discussions are resolved. If not, I wait another week. I have never thought about seeing if the person I pick for best response is still active~ that is a good idea!

I don't hurry and do anything! LOL I have a reg job, so mylot isn't as important to me as it is to some people. I have really increased my referrals however! So I am happy about that, and that few cents here and there does help! I don't care how hard hubby is laughing. I'm hoping to get some more referrals and be able to spend more time here. I'm glad if I just make the $10 payout. My lot isn't my only gig. As far as best responses. I need to do that too I suppose. I give them to whomever deserve them, whether they are active or not. do you have alot of inactives?
