My Earnings Increased Last Night And Again Just Two Minutes Ago.

I am not complaining but I am curious as to why it would happen. This is something I haven't noticed before but this morning I noticed my earnings have increased over night. Usually I only see an increase when everyone else gets updated or I see that I have dropped a few pennies due to being involved where a discussion gets deleted. But normally not the other way. I just noticed my earning update a few minutes ago so I know that it was a normal update. Have you seen your earnings increase at odd times of the day, even when you have been updated normally?

It happens all the time. You said you've noticed your earnings go down a few pennies here and there when discussions get deleted or what have you. When that happens, myLot usually takes those pennies and re-distributes them to the membership, so you will find a penny or two increase at various times of day/month as well. When I was very active I kept a spreadsheet of my daily earnings and noticed this all the time. Sometimes it would be several days in a row, sometimes it would be maybe once a week, but adjustments were made to the earnings from up to a week or so prior.

That makes a lot of sense! As far as I am concerned, it can keep happening! I like increases for any reason!!

You know I was just responding to another response and it occurred to me that it could be happening all the time. It was just that on that particular time it happened I had a earning value that showed a number that is close to my heart for another reason so it stuck in my head. I don't keep track of what I make in Mylot so I don't notice it when it happens. I think I will try to remember to write down the value at the end of a day and see just how often it happens. Thanks

It's stated in the FAQs that they make adjustments throughout the month. Today was one of those days it seems http://www.mylot.com/o/faq/faq6.aspx#17

Thanks Mysdianait It's funny how I can get excited over a few pennies when I couldn't even use them to buy a stick of gum here. But it's always better than seeing it go the other way.

Not sure whether you know but I'm saving online dollars for a trip to USA and every cent gets me a little bit nearer It ALL adds up!

Glad your saving for a trip. I was invited to go on a fly in fishing trip to Northern Quebec a few years ago. We had a few months to come up with our money to go but at that time we pretty much needed every cent to survive. Back then I was always spending money on computers and electronics. What I did was to quit buy Tim Horton's coffee every morning. I stopped buying that muffin every day and brought things from home instead. I also quit drinking Coke until after the fishing trip. I put that money I wasn't spending into a jar and by the time it was fly-in time I had saved enough to pay for the trip and to buy all new fishing gear for the trip. I was allowed to bring a friend so I asked my good friend Kerry. He was working with me at the time and he did the same thing to save the money for the trip. It was my first fly in fishing trip and an experience of a life time. I hope your trip to the US is as awesome as our trip.

Yes, when I complete a task and that task is accepted, I notice that there is a change in balance when it is not time to be updated (that is the 24hr time span hasn't passed yet). When a task is accepted, I receive the updated balance there and then, independently at what time of the day it is.

I don't do any task here at Mylot, so I know that's not what it is. Actually I have only ever seen two tasks available here. Glad you get to do some though and that you get paid right away. That's always cool.

Yes i did complete a few tasks. No, I do not get paid straight away. Sometimes it takes a week or more for a task to be approved, so you get to wait a bit and hope that you are going to get paid... but then when you are approved, it shows in your earnings.

I also noticed it for a short bit, but since it was such a Small amount I am not sure it really benefited me as well. But it was interesting to see it updated like that, and hope it was a Big accomplishment and encouragement for others as well to prove this site does pay as well.

Yeah the amount of the increase was pretty small. I think I said it wouldn't even buy me a stick of gum but it's always nice to see it go in the right direction.

Hi, WebMann I noticed the my earnings increased twice yesterday. First it increased by 21 cents then my 10 cents. I thought Mylot have a new policy of adding our earnings promptly instead of once a day. I mean, post one or two discussion or answers and then the figures would immediately change. But there was no increase today. Oh, well, maybe just a glitch indeed. I was wrong Have a nice day!

A few days ago some one explained to me that it may be that responses get deleted and the earnings get distributed differently. Not sure if that's correct but it's an answer. :)

I noticed a similar thing, as well. I woke up, logged on, and noticed that I had a little more earnings that yesterday, but then my earnings just increased again. I don't really understand, but I don't think that this is the first time that this has happened. I think that it has happened at least once or twice before.

This morning I see than nothing changed in my earnings. And that's normal as I usually see the update of earnings after I have lunch here. Even if it's only a couple of cents it still makes me feel good to see it change.

I noticed that this morning also. When I first logged in, it was just a couple of pennies different. So I checked the earnings to see if that was what I had earned from yesterday, because I expected it to be more. I noticed that yesterday's earnings hadnt posted yet. Sure enough, a little bit ago, my earnings from yesterday posted. I have no idea why my earnings increased this morning. Like you, Im not complaining! Maybe there was some kind of glitch and they readjusted for everyone? I wish my earnings would increase every single time I logged on!

:) yeah that would be nice to just keep logging in and out until we reached a payout. :) I just happened to remember my balance increase yesterday because it was a number that is important in my life and made me smile. This morning that was a different value so it came between earning updates. I do remember it happening before, I had forgotten but I remember writing about when it happened because some one responded saying their earnings went down. I responded back saying I took their money. But I think it only happened two times.

I didn't experience anything like this today,maybe it's because i didn't participate anything on mylot yesterday and thus,no earning for today.But i do experience my earning decrease then increase .

I notice that my income increases while I am responding to others and also when responses keep coming in to my discussions. But at the same time I do notice my earnings decreases for no apparent reasons. It is just how it works here, rob tom to pay jack, sort of game. So make less mistake to avoid being robbed! But smile when the extra bonuses being thrown in.

I noticed a certain lift in earnings too, but for me it happened yesterday and a few days before. It was a nice one and even though they are pennies, they do add up.. Must be the fact that there are some discussions deleted and earnings distributed; somewhere along those lines. Or what they call it; mylot adjustments. I would certainly love all these tiny adjustments. They pile up quickly before we know it.

Hi WebMann, I notice it when my tasks still pending. A few days ago that ever happen, I really don't understand I have a few pennies loss but they return back and give additional.

hi webmann, i think what i observed in mylot is that my earnings increases at the end of the day but this is from yesterdays visit that i made here. i think it also differs from the country coz i think NL, my earnings increases at the end of the day from yesterday. maybe those are responses from the posts that you made.
