Mylot is a give and take relationship.

You post and you give responses as well. If you give responses you get back comments and get acknowledged and thanked. When you post a discussion, you get respondents and you have to give substantial comment back and acknowledge the respondents as well and sometimes threads of discussion happen. I think we really have to support each other here. If we become selfish we will turn out to be the loser. So for those who just want to post and post and not minding to acknowledge or comment back and also not caring to respond to their friends or others discussion, I believe they are missing a lot the essence of mylot and they themselves are the loser. How about you what is your opinion. Do you care about the true essence of mylot?

yeah i care to respond to other's thread especially my friends, i post when they have new threads as well as they are also helping me. that's why i'm thanking all of the people who have helped me to reach my goal, coz without them maybe i will not earn hehehe.. we're here to help each other, i also rate people positive or give them a 'pencil' coz i also want them to excel especially the newbies coz i know they still want to have a guide. that's why when someone is really in need & really clueless about mylot, i just help them & guide them so that they will know or will have an idea about the process here. coz i really know the feeling of being a newbie, it's like your in a new place with no friends or acquaintances..

God bless you for that. Cheers!

That is so right! Mylot is a community for discussions. I know the first reason why I joined mylot is to earn, the first few days I would post responses on some discussion with simple thoughts and short answers. But now I realized I am actually enjoying it I post lengthy response and then somebody would respond to that. It's like my thoughts were noticed and someone is really reading what I had wrote. And I don't agree on some of the users who thanked you when you post a response to them. I know they are just being polite but I hope they could make their statement longer and at least give some views regarding your response. Like what I am doing, while typing this response I am rereading your post. And I believe the same, those who just post and post without substance are really losers. Now another reason why I am staying in Mylot is because I am having nice "talks" with fellow mylotters. happy mylotting!

Hi pehpot, I like your name! You have good points and I hope all users will learn from you. And also I would like to imagine that we are here at mylot like in personal live discussion in one beautiful garden where we enjoy chatting about so many issues and we get to learn from each others point of view and we became even closer by doing so. Yes, it is a good feeling to know that what you wrote was read by the poster. While thanking is good it is a better gesture to give substantial comments back. Now I hope I have more of friends like you so I want to add you as my friend. Hope you accept. Thank you for sharing. Cheers!

i start very few discussions but sure do enjoy the discussions & all the new ideas you get on mylot. i really enjoy picking up tips on cooking because i love to cook, also enjoy the reading category because u learn about new books u have not read & i love to read to. i had to retire due to bad health & mylot has filled a big void for me.

Nice one. For the rate of 1 to 10, I give you 10. for this topic. You have a nice point with this. In the first place, why do we post a discussion? For me, I need to gather others opinion from the question or discussions I have posted. What I was doing is forget the earnings first, because if I do to concentrate on the earnings, then the essence of this wonderful site will be lost. I do acknowledge all of my respondents here. But have times that I could not do that when I was busy to other things and I was offline. It is not mandatory to give comments to our respondents here, but it is a way of giving them a simple thanks for their efforts to respond. Keep it up and I am sure you're not one among those loser here. Have a nice day my friend.

Hi friend! Nice to hear from you again. So as I could you seem to have been busy this past few weeks! Well thank you for the good points you shared as well. Indeed it is not mandatory to give comments to our respondents but it's wonderful to show gratitude always and in fact if we give good and substantial comments I believe we are also earning good points from it as I could personally observe. Thanks again my friend for sharing and hope to see more of you around here! Cheers!

Yeah. and it is obvious since you have a good rating of 10 here.Keep it up and hope you retain your good images here at myLot. I was trying to be good here as possible. It is a very nice public forum for me, no discrimination and we can post freely at our own will unless we are not violating the rules set by this site. Helping each other here is a good way of showing friendship. Especially those who are still in doubt as to what they can gain from myLot? I think many will agree with your statement, it is nice.

in my opinion, this is true but not all is true. i know some member here that starts a lot of discussions but very seldom seen in some others' discussion, giving his response. this is selfishness, i guess. he only wants to earn from other people but he don't want to help other people to earn. in one time, he lost everything he earned here, friends and money. but he came back, with i don't want to check anymore how he is doing now. on the other hand, giving comments and thank you's to our responders is not totally advisable as it is also one that was mentioned in the mylot guidelines. just like one discussion i remember, "she hate it when they thank her". but giving comments is good only if the response need to be commented, and if the response asks for something to be answered. this is to keep the discussion alive.

Hi friend! Well indeed there are those people who are seldom seen in other posts but as I said they are missing a lot. They are actually the loser because they lose lots of benefits. Regarding giving comments back, I believe this is not included in the dont's of the guidelines here. What is not encouraged is just saying thank you because it will not add to your earnings. But giving back quality comments will actually add up something to your earnings (I've actually proven that based on my previous experience and one of the users here also testified that she also did earn out of substantial comments she gave back to her respondents.) Let us remember that mylot is encouraging healthy discussion and giving back quality comments is one form of health discussion so as for me, I really do give back substantial comments when it is due. And it is a boost on the respondents because they will really feel that his comment was really read and understood and appreciated. Have a nice day!

Very well said my dear salonga. I do post once in a awhile but when I start a discussion, I make sure that I do acknowledge the responders as much as I can. And I do respond too as much as I can to the discussions here specially if it is started by my friends. I agree with you. We don't have to be selfish here. We joined here, we start discussions, then we have to respond to other discussions as well. Based on my experiences here, I've met friends through the discussions that I make and through the discussions members has started. I believe that the true essence of mylot is helping each other. Members helps each other by contributing to discussions and you have to contribute too by responding. Happy postings! HUGZ!

i agree with you. mylot is really a matter of give and take relationship. since we are all friends here why not help each other. besides, thats what mylot is - responding to other's discussions. if we respond to other's, then definitely we will get responses from them too. if we will not gonna give something, how can we receive anything in return. i don't really know if im making any sense out of these words, but i just want to respond. happy mylotting!

Yeah I agree with you. As long as the users care about "quality discussions" more and less about the earnings they get, myLot will grow(well it is already growing as I speak). There are a lot of great discussions here that users can learn from. As you said, it is nice that there is no discrimination here. More and more users would feel welcome and post their thoughts. I believe that we have to achieve a balance with giving and taking in myLot.

I personally have been helped by most of the good discussions here. I learned some helpful tips and many other wonderful things that I can apply in my every day living. Keep yourself visible around and see how mylot will be greatly appreciated by you. Thank you for sharing!

There is no racial discrimination here. The atmosphere is friendly and most of the time peaceful. Although there are few ones in the fighting mood, they are just very few and they do not prevail. I love mylot and I believe this is the best among the paying sites. Thank you for dropping by and hope you enjoy your stay at mylot. Cheers for you and me!

That's why as much as possible, I really read a lot before making comments or suggestions. I don't want to post items just to make my levels go up. I still prefer learning than earning a few cents. Though somehow, it is motivating.

When we think of just the money then we become selfish. As I said, give and take is the essence and should I also say: it is the name of the game? When someone here becomes selfish, he loses the real essence of the mylot community. So let's join hand and let's keep on supporting each other! Cheers!

Very right! Imagine speaking to someone and then he did not answer. Imagine being asked and then when you replied, you don't get back any comments and you don't know if your reply answers his question or not. And imagine also someone, asking and asking for himself and then get replies but he does not answer or give comments to others who are asking as well or soliciting advice? Give and take is the name of the game here at mylot and Cheers to people like you here!!!

Hello salonga, I Do agree with you when you start a discussion and friends responds and you reply back its having a conservation with so many friends and you get difference opinions which makes it so interesting so I don't understand when one does the discussion and not responding back to some who responded to your discussion.

I honestly believe that responding back will delight the respondent's heart and at the same time you also earn some points if you replied substantially. We don't have to just say thank you because it is not encouraged in the guidelines for very obvious reason. Have a nice day!

Yes, I do care about the true essense of mylot. I think that is what makes mylot so special. It is a site that wants interaction among it's members. I go back when I start a post and look for any responses that are there and respond to them. To me if a person takes the time to respond to my discussion than I should go back and respond to what they have posted. For me it is not a case of posting, posting, posting. It is a case of truly being interested in what the other people of mylot have to say.
