Mylot Rating and Earning
October 16, 2008 9:00am CST
I've had a red number 9 star for quite some time and today I was sad to see it go from a 93% rating to an 88% rating! I don't really know what I did wrong because I've been very active lately. The last few days have been good for me in terms of earning. I earn a lot because I post a lot. So maybe there's no correlation between one's rating and one's earning? What do you think?

the main for ur decrease in rating is ur responses u have may have given before are rated negative....this had made ur rating come down..but earnign have nothing to do with rating so keep on the good work!!gud luck dude!!! Once more thing try to post responses which are more likely to be accepted by other users and they don't give u negative rating!!thts it!!

You might have been rated negatively by somebody. This happens to several myLot users. Being rated negatively means that they either don't like your post or they just hate you. Ratings have nothing to do with earnings. You earn the same eventhough you have a lower rating.

hello friend, i think it is normal the star reputation goes up or goes down.Before i have the blue star color, but now, i am red color.THe star color is just decided by the rating, if we get more positive feedbacks from other mylotters, our star reputation will rise, so our star coor will go up to blue in the end.But the star color is no effect to our earning here.our earning is decided by the quality of our post.if we post the high quality words with our responses and discussions, we will get more earning from it.lol good luck

Hi! There is definitely no correlation between earnings and ratings. The rating you have is your reputation among the members here. I have seen that you had a discussion comparing myLot with another site (I think it was Reviewstream). You gave positive comments about the other site, so perhaps some myLot members gave you a negative on your discussion. Well, just a thought .. but your star rating is not related to your earnings, otherwise I could have been earning a lot! Hahaha. Happy myLotting!

Well friend you have a 9 rating again. The changing of ratings happens sometimes. Its normal here. I have experienced that before and I was sad too. I'm happy that I am able to maintain it for several months now. Personally I think everything here has a correlation with the earnings. The number of posts depicts how active you are and the mylot ranking shows how good your responses are through the positive ratings you get. That means you are making quality responses. Participation can be seen in your number of post because you are active and the quality responses can be seen in your mylot ranking. Participation and quality posts/responses are the tools to increase our earnings. You will see that in the mylot guidelines. Ciao!

I think there is really no connection with ratings and the earning part. I have been here for two months and then my earnings drop sometimes when I focused on other interest and now my ratings is stagnant on 97 and I don't know how and why, a lot of users here thinks that the rating system is no good. and some says that it should be removed

You are not alone and you do not have to worry about it for it will happened here in Mylot as well for myself it is 99/100 before a days but if you will see it unto now it is also decreasing and it is now 96/100 so in a few days I am not surprise at all for someone would rate us in a negative rate.
