Wewll this is going to be another month I do not make payout. I avoided this site like the plague most this month due to issues with cash and point losses. It has gotten to be frustrating beyond belief here at times. So I've been at another site enjoying a lot of fun, chatting, and gamnes etc with a lot of myLotters as well. My question up for discussion is, do you find it frustrating to lose cash for basically no purpose, reason, or uinderstanding/explanation? Do you find yourself staying away or not posting as much due to the losses? Do you travers to other sites for your daily entertainment etc? HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

I see your smiling face over at the other site. yeah you don't get paid there, but you are right it's very entertaining there. i personally have not had any problems lately with mylot. i did a while ago and stayed away for almost a year. but what i have found is when all else fails, mylot is solid and always always pays. and there are just people here that i would be heartbroken to lose contact with

Hi Grandpa! I have been here two years next week. I spent a heck of a lot of time in the money interest for the first year and then moved out and now I go here, there and everywhere and I find so much going on that I can't keep up with it all. Maybe we change. It's like going to the same fairground year after year. The rides are just the same and maybe we get fed up. Could that be? For me I am not complaining as I find more than enough to do here and I have made many new friends among the newer users, many of whom have brought a breath of fresh air. I am not here for the earnings and I let them pile up but I have no difficulty reaching payout by mid month each month this year so far as I find so much going on. Hope it will pick up for you too soon!

It just isn't like it used to be. There are peopel that have been here for some time now that have gone the way of one liners etc. Oh well. I still come around and earn my $5 to $10 a month is all. It's still okay just the fun is subsiding greatly as of late. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

Well, it has been frustrating the past few months. It's took me 3 months to make payoff and it's not like I never come here. I can post all day and make 1 cent! That is horrible. I have no idea what is going on since I don't follow the money or the discussions. I occasionally see someone posting that their discussion got dropped and I find I had been one to respond. So I guess that meant whatever I was making from that discussion went down the tube. I have no idea what is going on and why we don't make anymore than we do now when once it was easy to get payout every month. I wish they would send out a note to everyone that loses money, explaining what is going on and why they are losing. I've tried surveys and such as that and find it very boring and most don't pay out anything. Or, they send you on a wild goose chase, first telling you that you get so much money when you fill out the survey, only to find, when you finish, that 'you haven't met the requirements'! I find that appalling, so I just quit them all! I only fool with one place and that is PayPerPost and they definitely pay!

You have the surveys down pat! AND, if you try to get off them, they'll show you the little bit you'll lose if you do. Well, they are dishonest! There used to be good surveys you could take and get something in return, but hardly any like that anymore. I had just as soon get paid in a product myself. I've won nice T-Shirts before, and those are nice to get. But when they just deny your eligibility AFTER you answer all their questions, that is just wrong.

I think the problem is that the older posters that use to make discussions here I guess that were in more depth or something, seem to have gone and they are not here to pave the way for the newcombers...they see what people are posting too and they are making there discussions based on what they are seeing... I dont know perhaps they have gone off to make more money somewhere else. I have only been here for just about 3 months now...and I cant say that I have seen overly great discussions...but I only post to and responde to what is in my interest--there fore I bypass the extra/duplicate/or lack of subjects. I am sorry you are not enjoying it here as much....but for the newbies they dont know any better. --does that make sense?

There are some old timers that have resorted to posting a lot of one liners all in a row as well. That's what makes me sad to a point. I can't and won't do one lioners. Well maybe I should as I see so many of them staying online yet though out, long, good discussions get deleted for no apparent reasoning. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

I've been noticing less discussions in my inbox to answer. I don't get frustrated (at least in regard to this issue, lol) because I don't notice the point loss (unless I lost 1,000 posts I wouldn't know because I never know how many I have), although I notice several people have brought that up in the past coupld days via their discussions. I would however notice lost earnings, unless it was like ten cents or something. I'll keep posting. I have other sites, but I like the ones that still hang around here too.

I'm all over the place. I like it here but I've learned to stay away from discussions about money or earning because idiots post their personal earnings links. Have you found another place that pays to post or are you just having fun?

Well its taken me a long time to reach payout, I finally got it this month, but its taken about 3 mos. to do it. I haven't done as much on here as I usually do, just haven't had a lot of time, its not because I've lost money or points or anything, just been busy. I try to log on everyday, even if its only for a few minutes. I haven't been staying away, just busy is all. Well I hope things start working out better for you on here, sure would hate lose you...

I don't really pay a whole lot of attention to my posts or earnings here anymore. I used to, and yeah I'd get frustrated whenever my points or earnings went down a little. But for the most part I'm just having fun so I don't pay much attention.

Here's what I don't understand about this site. Don't the users decide the discussions? How can they be boring if "you" are starting the discussions and talking about things you like? I am so confused.

I haven't had this happen to me, yet, but I don't understand why it would be happening to you. I suppose, though, as myLot's "Terms of Service" say = daily earning reports are only ESTIMATIONS of what you've made. I'm sure their crazy algorithm changes from time to time because of a number of factors, so I wouldn't worry about it too much, unless it's a huge drop or something. I would probably still stay on myLot, because I haven't really found any other PTP sites that are quite as good. Did you manage to make payout at wherever else you were posting at, though?

$2 a day without a lot of work! I haven't even been able to reach $1 in one day. How much time do you need to spend on myLot in a 24 hour period to earn like that? I guess that if you are on myLot every day for extended periods of time, it is going to get boring. How is it worse than before? I found the quality of discussions on myLot to be worse when I first joined than now. Granted, I haven't been around all that long and I have taken a couple of large breaks away due to being busy with work. Perhaps you need to post on different interest boards or add some new friends to change things up?

Losing earnings sounds more like Pickjack than myLot. I maybe lose a few cents here and there but not much more than that. Still I have gone from making payout every month to making payout every other month and I'm fine with that. Other things in life for me to do. But I get on Yuwie and a few other sites also. What other site have you been playing on ?

I've noticed a decrease in earnings lately - i hadnt noticed if it was from losses or what but You seem to have to make more and more and more responses and discussions to actually make payout. I've also noticed that fewer and fewer of the people in my friends list are around (and i miss them!) I've not been around as much because I've been very busy this past couple months. I feel like all i do lately is run and not get to relax at all.

So you didn't say where you were hanging out at, though I think I recall a discussion you started a while back that it was facebook. Though I could totally be wrong about that. I don't start many discussions these days, and try to respond to a few discussions here and there every day. Some days I just don't have time to even to that. I have been thinking about joining facebook but just haven't had the time to look into it. Glad you are having fun, that's what it is all about anyway~

Me too since most my discussions seem to get deleted now anyways. I guess nobody believes those are my pictures oh well. I still stop in on discussions just not starting many as they are just a waste of my time lately. As usual i bet it will calm down soon enough.

I am just now active again lately. I stayed away for awhile but for different reasons. I baskically have too much on my plate at any given time to totally focus on one thing. Besides that it usually takes me about 2-3 months to build up to payout here.

I have not been near as active on here as I was in the past but not for the reasons as you. I really don't pay that much attention to the amount as I am just here for the fun and the nice people. I just find a lot of the discussions here not that interesting to me, I don't have anything to add to most of them. I do spend a lot of time on a game site that I play on. Have fun playing your games. :)
