Have you notice new stimulus package section? I see task without ‘about task’ What do you think ‘tasks’ is all about on Mylot.?

Pola, the tasks part isn't what makes me wonder. The whole thing is. I wish they'd stop the tease and just put up the new site already. I'm not terribly patient.

I have no idea what the new package will be, but hopefully we might see our earnings grow more quickly.

Thank you for mentioning that! I got the new alert that hinted at something different and I couldn't for the life of me figure out what was different! Maybe it's something like MTurk where people hire out little things like counting the number of windows in a building or something.

I'm not a full time myLotter, I do writing and other things but myLot is a big part of my day. Pennies add up, knowledge is gained, people make me laugh and it's a thoroughly enjoyable time. It'd be nice to have extra ways to make money, especially when there are 4 jobs in the paper for my town on 150,000! If only I could drive a big rig, I'd be employed!!

Yep, I have noticed it. By reading the new guidelines, it sounds as if we are to read through the responses before responding, so I'm thinking we may get credited for page views or something of that sort. I guess we won't know and just keep on guessing until they unveil it.

I have not seen the new section yet, pola, but I did find a new alert about the MyLot stimulus when I logged in today. I thank you for letting me know about this.

Yes many have already notice it. Some are also counting how many repeat discussions there are now about it too
@polachicago (19075)

and it was none on discussion search. I don't mean to repeat anyone, maybe search needs to be improved or people are using wrong key words...

Oh I just watched the page and they come up one after the other No need for the searchbar for this topic.

I didn't watch all discussions, I used the search under tasks and nothing shows up. I just noticed different tags on yours. Believe me, I am not here to repeat after anyone, in fact this is my first discussion in last 3 months.... Unfortunately, I am not full time on Mylot to see it all...without proper search...

Jeez, who do people comment on a discussion if they don't know what it's about?! That's what got me away from Mylot... too many people commenting on discussions just to build up points and $, not to make a contribution to the discussion.

Idlewise I did not respond to the discussion just to get points or the money. I honestly did not know what the person was talking about. I am one who will ask the question. I am sorry if you think that I was just doing it for money because I am not that type of person.

I'm still trying to figure that out for myself. I leave for a little while and everything goes haywire... I know of two things that can make me smile... the crazy things at MyLot and my friend pola freezing her tush up there in Chicago! Thanks Zelo

Seems like Amazon.com's Mechanical Turk... people carry out brief tasks and get a little bit of money in return. I'll probably check it out, because I long ago got tired of the traditional Mylot discussion/response format. And with tasks you can do something more interesting (to me) than just chatting. Who knows, I might actually learn something new when doing a task. So yes, I'll check into tasks to see what it's all about.

Hey polachicago! Yes, I did notice it. Though I couldn't even begin to guess what it is all about. Other than it's some new way to increase our earnings. I guess we will just have to wait and see!

I have read the alerts but I have no idea what "about task" means. Why they can't just introduce whatever they are going to do beats me. I think that I'm turning into a grouch!

yes, curiosity is going to bring people back, maybe they need bigger traffic...
