Has anyone noticed their earnings especially people outside the USA? Fluctuation
June 29, 2008 10:14am CST
I'm just wondering as I noticed this in my earnings. I saw that on one particular day it was $1 but then when I checked back again it went up $0.01. Could it be due to the exchange rate as I'm not from USA? Does it fluctuate or is it due to the posts being deleted or added back? Anyone ever observe these kinds of activity?

Hi there mate! I've noticed that too on very odd times. Though I often experience the decreasing amount by 1 cent, I have seen one that comes up on every post(sound like to many no just two). Like you I'm baffled and have though that it may be due to the currency exchange too. But for sure deleted post cannot be added back. One time I'm in the middle of adding a 2nd comment when I hit the post the discussion have been deleted, but my earning did not change. Maybe a decrease in earning will only be shown after logoff/logon, but for an increase you can observe it on page refresh. How I wish they do this more often.

Well,this phenomenon does not depend on location whether you are in US or not,you would experience it.If you go to mylot earnings page,below will be disclaimer that the earnings are all estimates.The discussions which violates terms and guidelines of mylot namely a response with referral links etc,would be deleted,and the corresponding earnings from the persons would be removed from them.Mylot does not keep these earnings to themselves.Instead,the earnings removed from these discussions would be given back to all mylotters based on their activity on that day.Thats the reason why there is sometimes a decrease of one or two cents or addition of one or two cents. Could it be due to the exchange rate as I'm not from USA? Well,not at all,as the earnings are calculated only in US dollars and not based on local currencies.So,change in exchange rates would not affect your earnings in dollars. Anyone ever observe these kinds of activity? Almost every one here on mylot would have experienced it.I have experienced it a half a dozen times since I joined mylot 3 months back. Cheers! Have a fantastic day Happy mylotting and happy earnings.

Thanks for the detailed explanation. If I could give more than 1 best response, you would have earned one tooBut then again it wouldn't be "best" already if there's 2? HahaAnyway thanks a lot as I appreciate you elaborating it & making it very clear. Happy mylotting to you too

I am happy that my response is useful to youThat itself is greater than receiving a best response.In fact,best response is a way to tell that the response was useful.Thats the very reason why I like receiving best responses. Cheers! Have a wonderful day

I have not noticed a lot of luctuation in my earnings, just that sometimes they will go down if a discussion I'e responded to has been deleted. Nohing too serious, and that does happen sometimes. I hope any problems you are having will get sorted out soon.
