have you done any of the mylot tasks lately? did you have fun? did your submissions get accepted? i wonder how many of you have had multiple accepted submissions for the tasks. do you also know why those tasks are posted? are the paragraphs you submit going to be published somewhere? what will those submissions be used for? the tasks can be fun, especially if your submission gets accepted and you get paid, lol. ^_^ but does anyone know what our accepted submissions will be usd for?

For some reason they do not appeal to me. I checked them out but never found anything that interested me.

Hi sandra with the lovely name!...I have been lucky with the tasks. So far I have had none rejected and its fun to see the money go up faster...I am still awaiting 3 more I did today. On some of the paragraphs, it says it will be used on a page about whatever the subject was you were writing about. I dont really care what they do with it. Its easy to access and easy to do and quick money. I did about 4 of them today but they go fast when they show up...

oh, my namesake is here! ^_^ yes, it's a bit fun, especially those "post 4 paragraphs for $2" tasks. they take only a few minutes and in just an hour, you get to earn much more than a week's worth of discussion! yes, they do disappear real quickly. it's just unfortunate that i'm always just about to sleep when they appear, so i don't get to spend much time to complete all of them altho9ugh i would love to do so. i can no longer afford to stay up late because i have adopted a baby (a baby bird, that is) and i've to sleep when it's asleep; it might go hungry once it wakes up for feeding and i'm still asleep! lol ^_^ some of the tasks i did were still "pending." are some of your tasks pending as well? on the other hand, some of them got approved within the minute. i wonder what the pending status means... is it a case of "approval delayed, approval denied"? lol ^_^

yes I noticed yesterday when I managed to grab 8 of them, that one went through in minutes and was approved. The other 7 are still pending. I hope that doesnt mean bad news...But it was late in the date so I thought that maybe they just stopped working on them for the day...I hope!

i've seen progress and resolution with the tasks, thankfully. ^_^ but i've been wondering if you've seen any tasks on writing paragraphs within the past 3 days? i've een online most of the time but no luck for me. :(

I think they were made for us to earn more (how little it may seem) and it's also a good thing for the site admins because it may mean they can have corporate partners or something. And yeah, I've tried some of them and I find them pretty easy to accomplish...

it may seem little, but add them up and boy, they make you earn more than perhaps an entire year's mylot earnings for some users! and for that, i'm glad. ^_^ i could only hope there are more... MUCH more. it seems we are always trying to get a hold of them but they're gone the minute they are posted. sigh...

Hi sandragellar! I am really excited with the new feature of mylot i.e task i have submitted 10 tasks out of which 6 have been approved but unfortunately 4 gone rejected due to my fault as i was new to this tasks. I think it will help members of mylot to reach the minimum payout quickly. I do not know in which way they use these tasks one of my task that was approved was to edit image in 38px width and 24 tall with transparent background i wonder what use of this tiny image.

about those little logos, makes me wonder as well. ^_^ perhaps they'll be using them as tiny logos for the tabs in internet windows? kinda like the little "e" logo when you open an internet window, and also like the "y" you see on the tab when you open a yahoo page? ^_^ of course, these are just guesses. hehe.

Hi sandragellar. I haven't gotten any luck on this. I checked it out last saturday and there was no task available. Just like you, I have some questions as to where they will use those approved tasks. Thanks. Have a great day!

try to check every few minutes when you're online. they just pop up suddenly and the slots get filled up quickly, so you better be quick about accepting them as well. at first i thought they just came at a certain time of the day, but i'm logging on at a different time now but they still keep popping up. hope you get to do a task and your submission gets accepted. it's a fun way to earn a few dollars... ^_^

a task becomes abandoned when the time alloted for it has passed and you haven't entered a submission yet. ^_^ i had one abandoned before, so i forfeit my chance before it gets abandoned, just so other mylotters can get the slot i claimed. after all, i can't finish the task, so others might as well get it... ^_^ i also get excited aout the tasks. i see my earnings increase a lot and the thrill of getting my submissions accepted and my earnings increase because of my efforts are some of the things that make me want to do more tasks. hope more of our submissions get accepted today! hope more good-paying and interesting tasks get posted!

It looks like they will be using it for some sort of survey or any experimentation related to their products. They may need the data so we're getting the job done and easier for them. I participated on one task. I didn't earn and like i said on some of my posts, it's pretty much time consuming.

i wonder how exactly they're going to use our submissions... will they still be under our name... that is, will it still be our writing? or will the proprty rights be theirs once they've accepted the tasks? i have a lot of questions concerning the tasks. it's kinda like a job board, but there's no clear cut contract and it makes me wonder about a lot of things, lol ^_^ i know some of them are time consuming. but some of them aren't... it will take just a few minutes to, say, write 4 paragraphs on a certain topic. it can get approved real quick... i've actually earned more in an hour of tasks than in a week of duscussions... ^_^ hope you get to see tasks that you like. some of them really pay way too little, but some are alright. ^_^

Hey sandra! I have no idea what the submitted tasks are being used for! Mylot has never given any information about that! So it is just another one of the many mysteries here! I don't even think that most of the mylotters really care as long as they get paid for doing the tasks and they get accepted! I haven't done any yet, but I am hoping to get a chance to do at least one of them when I know that I will have enough time to designate to doing it!

hope you do have time. some of the tasks are fun enough, especially if you want to write and channel your artistic juices. plus, you get to earn a whole lot of extra on mylot, lol ^_^ i wonder what the approved tasks will be used for. i know they're for some websites, but how exactly will they be used, right? will they be copyrighted in their name, or will they still be our writing? hope you get to finish some tasks. it's exciting when you're waiting to get approved... ^_^

So far i've only got one that i accepted and participate. It was approved after a few days and its quite helpful on my earnings. Since that i haven't got the chance again to get a task as it gone very fast on the dashboard. Anyway i could say its very helpful. I just only hope that they will post a task that is quite rewarding and not so low rewards.

Last week I finished four logo tasks and three of them were approved. I am so lucky as I am not professional at Photoshop. It encourages me to check the new tasks now and then. However, I have to say that other tasks are not suitable for me because they are too difficult for me to finish. I love China

No I haven't really gotten lucky with any of the tasks because all the ones I saw so far were street reviews of New York and I live in Michigan and have never really been to New York before in my life. I figured they probably wouldn't get approved or anything like that if I just lied through the whole review but maybe in the future I'll be able to do some. I think it's great that mylot has added new things to their website and people should be greatful because mylot is a very legitimate site that actually pays you.

Yes i did do some tasks lately and all of them were accepted. i believe those paragraph which users writes will be posted on some website. These tasks are fun.

Hi sandra, I haven't done any tasks yet so I really don't know if mylot is using the submission for other use. Tamara
