This is why I think spoiled, its because they have a lot of clowns on here creating account after account so they can do nothing but make smartass remarks and just overal cause as much drama as they can under as many threads as they can. There is no way they can pay us like they used too because of members like this. Those def dont deserve to be paid much and they cant really distinguish who is a honest active member and who isnt, so there for they just have to decrease the payments to all of us. Its a shame really. But as they say, "One bad apple spoils the bunch!" Bay xx

oh that's sad. yeah, i used to get really good money, which i didn't withdraw. i just let it stay. then after a few months, i came back and then started again. it's not like it was used to be. we earned so much back then. that was a year ago.

Yeah it was about a year ago when I was on here too. Maybe a little longer than a year. It wasnt like it was back then either, I dont really remember all this drama and hatefulness for no reason. But what can you do? MyLots not doing anything about so we surely cant. Bay xx

No, but I am new to this, and you seem to know about what's going on - to the point of your own question anyway! Could you explain the details of earnings? I can't find specifics. FAQs dont' give it! I just joined and have 15ยข but how do you know how many posts you have made - is that hte number beside your screenname? And what gets points - new discussions you start, posts you post to existing discussions, question posts to existing discussions? Respond to a response to a discussion you started or joined in one? posts to discussions with no response? I get that to make any kind of earning, you have have to post often and quality content, but i still can't figure the breakdown. Can you give some insite? I love it here! So much fun!

yes the number beside your screenname is how many posts you have. yesterday i just reached 100 and i got a yellow star with an 8. it means how my responses have been rated. all of what you wrote is how you get your earnings. for posting replies,starting discussions,getting replies to them. and they do have to be quality content to at least match what the discussion was about.

that is right. the number beside the name is the number of posts. i really cannot pinpoint which ones earn. because despite the regularity of my activities, the earnings are very erratic. i don't understand mylot's algorithm. no one can really beat it. hahaha

While I have been on here for months now, as you can tell, I am not a very regular user anymmore. But I have been at it since mid-January, and for the first few months I was posting 10-20 a day. Now that I have slacked off, I am averaging 25-30 a month. With over 600 posts, I have yet to earn my first $20! It seems the more you partipate regularly, the more you earn! For those like me who mosey in here on a less than daily basis, our earnings are fewer per post. At least that's all I have noticed.

I read somewhere that they used to pay more for each comment, but after a while when more people started writing they drop the pay for each comment... I do not know I guess I am still new to know...

I'm new here on mylot and haven't paid yet. I'm way too far from the minimum payout although I tried my best I still noticed that my earnings barely move.

Well you are doing better than me then. I forgot to check your star color, I will have to check that when I finish posting this to see if maybe that has some effect on how much you make. Anyhow with over 900 posts between what I have been paid out and what I have in my account pending making payout I have only made a total of about less than $19. Can you please give me a tip on how you are making so much better than me? Do you post all very long responses? Do you stick to certain subjects that pay better? What is the trick?
