you got it man, most mylotians definitely brag here that they don't really care for what they are getting on mylot. some say they are happy for the friends they have earned here in comparison to money, but the question that arises here, how many persons do own friends at present? i know most of my dearest friends have already left mylot and some others are inactive. so i am indeed missing them all, and i am here on mylot to make money which we are hardly earning, despite the valuable time we're spending on mylot, isnt?

Right.Let a single person come forward and say that "I am here for friendship only and don't credit any cents to my account from this moment".

I enjoy getting into a discussion and responding back and forth with the people that are talking. Today however I was reading the discussion guidelines and found out something interesting. You get paid when you start a discussion and you get paid for your first response to a discussion, but if you stay in it and respond more than once you don't get paid for any of the other responses you post. That is disappointing because it makes us just keep moving around looking for a discussion worth responding to. It really doesn't make it a discussion at all. Just read and respond and move on. I usually respond back and forth in my favorite discussions even though I don't get paid for them. I like the people and we can get some lively chats going. However as was stated here, most people joined to make a little money and that is exactly what we get -Little money.

May be! However, I do not keep tabs on my cents...I try enjoying my discussions either starting them or replying to them.

Yes it is very low and it is definitely worth the work we do here.If the money is not there at least we will not comment on it and go happily interacting with our friends here.

You asked, so I'll answer. : ) Mylot DID lower their paying wage quite a bit several months ago. However, in the last two weeks, I have noticed an even lower amount of money being paid. Once I just thought they made a mistake so I asked why the low amount for that particular day. They said they compared my responses to others that were similar, and they paid me according to who's was better. It was the first time I ever thought that they don't pay for every single QUALITY post. Now while I say that, I'm still thankful they pay ANYthing. I could be getting nothing. And while I'm disappointed, the plus side is that every day I get to be in contact with some great mylotters.

hello balasri, i also feel the same.lately i am finding that i am not earning as much cents as i estimate.because i always calculate it based on my previous earnings.but then i always find it to be less than me. i think when i had joined mylot,i was getting more which even went to 5 cents per discussion.yeah i have experienced it.but since 2-3 months i am feeling it has reduced the amount.i thought that may be my responses are not upto the mark.but when i posted a lengthy response,then also the same thing.so now i have left thinking about it.now i am just a few cents behind to reach my $10 and i am very much excited about the payout as it will be my first one.

hehe yeah i do feel this way, especially this month. earlier in the month i had some time to spare and i had been spending time on mylot to make up for the times that i hadn't for the past few months. i thought that i've responded to quite a number of discussions but oh well, didn't earn that much at all. quite disappointed but it's ok. just gotta be patient hehe.
