i read a discussion not that long ago that said that they didn't think that mylot was fair as far as how they paid and i don't really know about that because mainly its just giving our opinions and asking questions to try and get people to answer them and we are getting paid for them i mean obviously if they were wanting to give more moneey i would not turn it down but really i am happy with the earnings that i get from mylot and its because i have questions that i need and want answered and i get paid to ask them...so what about all of you do you think mylot is fair? thanks for taking the time out of your day to stop by and read and review my discussion and i hope that you reply to my discussion and i hope that you all had a great day and that you have a great night tonight, once again thanks for taking the time!

I think they pay fair considering its not very hard to post i mean 1 or 2 cents per post isnt that bad. Mabey if it was harder to earn money then i would say they could give a little bit more but i think mylot is doing a good job with paying.

I think it's fair since it's more entertainment with a little bit of social networking thrown in than work so why should mylot pay more? I really wish I had come up with the idea for this site!

I haven't been a member for very long, so I'm not sure if it's fair, but I have fun reading the posts and replying. I don't know very many places that allow me to ask a variety of questions and get so much feedback all on one website. There are probably some that are like this, but I haven't found them. So far I'm happy with my earnings. It isn't a lot by most people's standards, but considering it's money for sitting at home and typing my thoughts and opinions, I'm not disappointed.

I think it is okay since I just sit on my couch and watch TV and make 20 dollars a month. I am going to watch TV anyway so might as tell make some money while I am doing it. However it would be nice if maybe they slid us another penny per post.

Well, since it is free money, I can't complain much. I just like that fact that they are paying me to say what I think. It would be nice to earn a bit more for great posts we make, but I don't see it happening. Sometimes the earnings disappoint me, and sometimes they amaze me.

In fact,I don't quite familar with the payment rules in mylot as my newbie here.Looking throught my earning record I felt that,no pain no gain here is the very exactly saying.Something I was less active due to the loads of works and therefore less pay for that day.~~I understand like this~am I right? Keep lotting`and good morning~

I think its not bad pay but, sometimes posting can be a little bit difficult because sometimes you run out of topics to discuses and you generally have to post and respond to a lot to make good earnings, and if you think of it this way if we worked for a magazine or news paper they would pay a little more, i think mylot wants us to tag our discussions so that when people search for answers or help online they can find our discussion's and get some answers to whatever subject they need help with, and i think our topics help in some way and typing can be hard work sometimes cause we take time out of our schedules to post even though we have fun there are times that i didn't have time to post but i made time becuse of course if you dont post you dont earn and i just think what would it hurt to bump up the pay a little, but other then that im content with my earnings and theres not much we can do about the pay, and over all i enjoy mylot.

Nobody knows if it's fair or not because nobody truly understands how they pay. But I"m ok with it. The more I post, the more I generally get paid, especially for longer posts of my own that attract attention.

It depends on what you consider fair. If for instance, you think that it pays us, then it is fair, but if you think well "I used to write five or six lines a couple of months ago and I got paid so much, but now I have to write eight to ten lines to get the same amount," OR "I thought I wrote a quality discussion but mylot does not think so, and I never went to University," and "maybe it is those silly questions as to what color of your hair is" that mylot has to pay that makes it hard to pay us who do write quality, then you will think mylot is not fair. I am just giving an example of what runs through people's heads and I will not mention that if mylot pays for quantity, the ranters have the greater advantage." Me I consider that if you write a quality discussion and also if you respond to a discussion someone else posted with more than two lines and more likely more than four lines and if you comment with more than four lines and you get paid more than one who only writes one or two lines, then myLot is fair. I have not heard from someone who only wrote one or two lines complaining why do they not make any money here.

I think they payment is rather a little fair, especially that the majority don't post quality stuff. If they paid more for any post at all, they would have closed by now. So, the few who dedicate themselves to myLotâ„¢ end up sustaining the time-wasters and jesters. It is difficult to appreciate, I know, for someone who posts quality write-ups, very good discussions and topics, to earn so little when they dedicate so much to myLotâ„¢. It is unfortunate that the system is not human. If it were, our posts would get varied and perhaps very good results and remuneration!

I think that every thing at my lot is systematized and this is not the man but the system which ovulate the discussion or the response we made and accordingly the credits are given. For the best responses and the to day's top discussions separate scores are credited to our account. However no body is aware of the system and the measurement to gauge the discussion but it can be assessed on the basis of the discussion posted and awards credited.

Hello jhl. I think that it is fair for mylot and us members. I am happy for all the time and effort that we spend here and think that it is worth it since mylot is such a nice community. I have been to some other sites as well to find that mylot is still the best one and no other sites can beat mylot for its stableness and such.

Yes, I think mylot is fair. After all, they don't have to pay us for participating on here, yet they do. It may not be much, but there are plenty of online places where people can participate in discussions just like this yet these doesn't pay any money at all. So anyone that complains should go to one of these places instead and then come back after they realize mylot is quite far, after all.

It's pretty fair like before but since they implemented the post more guideline, most of us just follows. As long as this site stays on forever, I don't think I'll go anywhere. It's time for the rest of you to reply. Happy go lucky.

well i wouldn't really know.. i guess there is really no way of knowing if we are paid fairly or not. we don't set the rules and we don't make the decisions here.. all i care of is i am happy with this site and with the interaction that i am getting from other mylotters.. happy happy happy! the money that i get through mylot is just bonus from the wonderful experience that i get from this site..

Its fair for me. I've read sometime ago here that myLot is paying a higher rate(very much) but considering how we have grown since then the rates are very much sustainable. I for one gain more than what I've earn here - ideas, outlook and friend. If we could only do it right here we can earn even more, I'm sure you know what I mean. Good day to you Jhl.)
