Ok, on Monday I replied to 3 posts and uploaded 1 image in 1 of the posts I made $1.16 for discussions and $.06 for images. On Wednesday I replied to around 50 poasts and uploaded 20 images. I earned $1.49 for discussions and $.33 for images. Now, I am completely confused on how the earnings are. You would think that yesterday I would have earned more way more than Monday. Anyone else this confused??????

YES!!!!! TOTALLY!!!! However, I am at 83 posts for the last three days, and I am wondering just what is going to happen next???? The other thing is, I have had some guys put me down as their friends, if I accept, what happens then??? And.... just by the way.... how do I get my + and - and ! signs back because they have dissappeared

Just be glad that you are making over $1 per day. I make only cents and that makes no sense to me!

Lost - Lost
I am very lost. I am happy to be earning, but I don't understand why the days I work harder, I earn about the same as not working hard at all. I am perplexed.

the calculation of earning is done by some algorithm specially designed for mylot(they have given in the guidelines).so it wont be possible to get some idea about it as it varies day to day.As far as earning for post i am happy.

Yes, I am happy to be earning for posting as well. I was just trying to figure out some of it. I am trying to make sense of it all, like many of us.

Doesn't it have to do with how valuable your discussions are? LIke if you just posted a whole lot of one word answers in lots of posts you probably wouldn't get much, but if you were in a proper discussion then you get more? I think so anyway, I've only been doing it for a few days, so still working it all out!

Yes and no.. I am not posting a whole lot of 1 word answers. Even if it comes to a one word answer I try to post as much as I could, like why I answer yes I like it or no I don't like and its because...what ever the reason is.

I think it also depends on if your post then furthered the discussion, you could post an extremely long answer, but it could be completely useless and not be any good to anybody. But if your post then inspires more posts then its better.... Does that make sense?? lol

I am very confused as well. I have been posting all day and it only shows that I posted 5 when I actually did about 30 or so. How exactly do you make money?

Yea, it's perplexing. And I was wondering about how a discussion you start gets to the front page? I just saw one of mine there, and that's when I actually started getting multiple relies. It's definately where you want to be.

As people post, it bumps your discussion down until someone responds to yours. This is a good reason to make friends, because they get emails when they enable the notify feature. That way they can choose to respond or not.

I am way confused I have lost numbers...on sunday I went to bed with 503 and I woke up with 497. I have been answering and people are answering my questions but my numbers arent changing other than if I answer questions. I dont know what I am doing wrong...I am getting discouraged.

a lot of us our. I have noticed that they are deleting a lot of discussion. so now I know that it is important to start picking ones that we can add real info to. Like why we came to the answers and stuff... good luck and hang in there. we will figure out what works. I am not trying to figure the algarythme, just why some days I do little and some I do more and it ends up being close to the same.

YOu should probably read the guidelines, they explain in there about why they delete some posts, which is why your numbers will be going down :)

I have no idea how they calculate the pay. On my 1st day I replied to about 10 discussions, started 1, and made .23. Yesterday I posted a response to over 30 discussions and made .04. Oh well, I am here more for the fun than money anyway.

I do admit, it is fun. I am just really confused on how the earnings thing goes. I love it here, it is so addicting. But I have seen some people post that they earned $5, $8, etc and wonder how that is.

Most of those posts are people just saying that's what they earned.. when they really just want to start new discussion so alot of people will reply. They hope it boosts their earnings. The new guidelines explain better of these things.

see all this working and calculations are trash!!!!! u just participate in about 3 responds(rate few replies) at that time only.. start 3 discussions.. upload 3-5 pics.. and thats it.. u endup with .5 to .75 $......... the work above this is not paid equally with this.... initially the $$$$ go up to attract u ....make u feel work ... then they go down, to make u feel the need to work MORE!!!!!! yes.... obviously the earnings are not equal for the same work done.... i too am in the same stage and literally confused!!!!!

I have the same question. I posed it to the webmasters but didn'tget a reply. I did with 20 responses 1,16 and with 52 o,57. That is a difference, don't you think? Somthing is going wrong, I think!

today is my first day on this. The more I read or see the more confusing it becomes . is there any place that the payment fee is set up do you think. That would be a good Idea don't you think

I think that is part of mylots strategy, keep us confused. I haven't got it figured out yet neither. Mylot sent us all an alert telling us hey have a system and not to try to figure it out. They also said that pic's need to be about the discussion. Also I believe they will only pay once per pic. Good luck everyone and I hope we all make lots of money.

Yup, totally confused, I've given up trying to make any sense of it and just carry on and what I get is a bonus anyway.
