hi my fellow mylotter!! I was just wanna ask why my earning decreased. It was like 1.66 when I last logged here!! But after school, I get on here again and my earning decreased a few cents it's now 1.62. I am not complaining for this, its just a few cents anyway, but I want to know why. I hope you can answer my question. Have a nice day and happy mylotting to all of you!!

Well, one reason might be you didn't participate in a certain period of time. They usually deduct your earnings when you haven't participate in a while.

no that cannot be the reason.u see although mylot does decrease if u didnt participate for some time, that time frame is very large(something like 3 months.)

All those words that are not accepted unless we change the content to make them pass and get posted are, very doubtfully, what myLot consider as quality. I have never understood the point of trying to get round the rules and post them if they are blocked in the first place

The above could be correct. Ive been looking through the FAQ, and from what I gather, earnings can be decreased when your posts have been removed either from it breaking rules, or the whole discussion being removed as it broke the rules. Also I read that every now and then they will check over some posts to see if it really relevant, and if it isnt they will deduct for that. Plese someone correct me on this last point if im wrong.

Thaks for responding!! Yeah! I think rushil94 is correct , I have posted a foul language to a disucussion and mylot did not accept what i want to post. I did not know that thay will deduct some of your earning even though my response is not accepted .. Happy mylotting!!

this is a surprising coincidence as the same happened to me yesterday.ur earnings will decrease if mylot deletes one of ur discussions or posts because they violate the terms and conditions.i was surprised too .when i went and checked my discussions i realised that one of my discussions which had 12 replies had been deleted.no reason has been offered to me and i know i did nt use any foul language.i suggest u check out ur discussions or posts too. i hope i've been helpful happy mylotting

HI friend, I believe the reason of the decrease of your earning is that some posts you made were deleted. Actually, I am experiencing it from time to time and I am also sad by it. But then again, that's life. :)

I think all of us have lost earnings at one time or another. I know I have, but I have never let it bother me, as I figured it was something I did to cause it anyway, and besides, I know I can make it back up if I work at it. Sometimes I think mylot deletes discussions just because, and I guess they don't have to have a reason. I have noticed lately that there have been duplications of discussions, and that there can cause them to be deleted as well, not to mention posting links that in direct violation of the terms and guidelines. I have posted to some of thsoe myself knowing full well, I wasn't going to get paid for them. I do it to help the new members out who don't know what they are doing when they come in here. I let them know that posting links is a violation and their discussion will be deleted along with all the responses. Most of the time, they are tankful that someone told them. I will continue to do so, so others won't fall into the trap of losing discussions and earnings. Well, good luck to you, and happy mylotting.

hey, sorry to hear your earnings have decreased but there could be several reasons for that. One is you have not participated in a while the other could be that you have written about something or participated in a conversation that is against the rules of mylot. That has happened to me once before. so be careful what you write. take care cheers

I haven't experience that before and hence I have no comment over that occurances but I think that it is probably best to contact the mylot team and ask them what exactly happened.

well, the only thing i can think of is because the discussion that you responded to had been deleted because of violation of mylot regulations... that is the only thing i can think of beside that your discussion is deleted because of violation... it is either one of these reason... otherwise, there is no reason that your earnings should decrease... take care and have a nice day...

There was one time I also observed that in my earnings balance, and according to one mylotter the most proximate reason is that, there might be a post you previous posted that was being deleted or a negate type or hateful content of message that caused that reduction. Thank you! Happy mylotting ^_^!

That is sad, i just hope it will not happen to me and i hope it will not happen to you again. Did you email the customer service of mylot. I remember when i have problem with my lot, i emailed them and they explained to me everything. For it not to happen again. Maybe their system have problem, and if they need to give it back to you then the can do it right away.

Well i encountered that thing also the other day i was deducted for 4 cents i dont remember the exact amount. Anyway, i dont worry about it anyway its just a cent and i dont really know how we get earn here. Surprisingly there are times also that when i checked my account it has additional 1 cent, so i dont really know how we earn here. The important for me is that i am happy doing my works here in mylot and learned so much here. Keep on posting good discussion Happy mylotting =)

Well, it happens from time. This usually occurs when there are certain discussions that you have responded to and were deleted. So when the discussion has been deleted, your response would most likely not count. In view of these, you will see some decrease in your earnings.

I dont know why your earnings are decreasing but I have posted a few posts and havent gotten in anything in earnings. I dont know why but my balance remains as it is and its kind of annoying me. I have posted a bunch of posts today and I am hoping that my balance will go up! anyways I hope you figure out why thats happening to you and let us know, because I certainly dont want that happening to me! Take care
