I join mylot at about early July, now I have $3.41 and about 236 posts, and I hope I could reach $10 by the end of this month, then I could reach my payout, I am very excited when I think of this. But I wonder if I could reach that goal. It seems a little hard. But it is possible, isn't it?

It could be hard, but if you really try I believe that you can do anything that you put your mind to. To be able to have a higher chance of being able to reach payout, you should do some tasks. =) Maybe even a dollar made of tasks is pretty good.

That suggestion is helpful. Mylot task help a lot if the creator approve your work. It is not possible to reached it if you will remain active in participating.

It would be possible with participation alone. $6.59 in 15 days is an average of $0.44 cents a day. I think this is quite achievable IF you are able to make, say, two QUALITY discussions a day (see my response below to understand what a 'quality' discussion entails). On the days when I have started one discussion and have commented on the (excellent) responses I have received, I have easily made $0.45 a day. Don't forget that we earn ONLY through our own participation, so it is essential to engage yourself and others in the discussion by getting good responses and commenting on them where ever possible. Just a line or two, especially just "Thanks for responding", which you may feel polite but is not really relevant, will NOT earn you very much at all. Writing good discussions and good responses and comments is an art which comes naturally to some but CAN be learned. The secret is to cultivate a lively mind, an interest and reasonable knowledge of many things, an interest in people and the ability to quickly and readily express your thoughts and opinions at the keyboard. It's an art and a skill that many people think they don't possess, yet most of us can engage in good discussions when we are talking face to face with others. You just need to translate that ability into words on the screen! It takes practice, I find, but it's possible!

Since all we know about the way that MyLot rewards us is that 'quality pays', it is important to concentrate on making 'quality' responses and discussions. I find that this is an art that has to be learned. Being able to write quickly and at length and with quality is something that comes with practice and, let's face it, not everyone finds it easy - MyLot is not really everyone's cup of tea! Try to ensure that the discussions you create will inspire good responses which, in turn, you can comment on. This is what discussion means: questions which people have a lot to write about in answer where you, in turn, can voice your opinions about others' opinions. The Guidelines, I know, seem to suggest that commenting on people's responses is not worthwhile but, in fact, what they are saying is only that there is little or no value in merely thanking people for their responses: what is needed is a paragraph or so of comments to each person who has made a useful and intelligent response. Think of good discussions you have had with people in real life. They may go on for hours with two or more people putting ideas into the discussion and much 'back and forth'! That is the kind of thing that MyLot intends when it uses the word 'quality'. When you respond to a discussion, try to make it so that your responses help to continue the discussion rather than close it. You can end your response with a question or make it obvious that you are interested in the other person's views. You can (and should) comment on other people's responses in a discussion, too. Often other people bring up new points in the topic which you may have views on. Being generally active in a discussion (either your own or someone else's) is what MyLot defines as 'participation'. Some of the tasks pay well (others are not so well rewarded, I find). It is worth looking at the tasks once a day, at least, to see if there are any that you could do that would be worth your time. Choosing tasks wisely and doing them well can greatly increase your earnings. If you know people who would enjoy what MyLot is about (which is not primarily to earn money but much more to do with socialising, learning, interacting and giving something back), try to persuade them to join as your referral. You earn a very generous 25% of their participation as a commission, so if you have four friends who are as active as you, you will easily double your earnings.

I agree with what owlwings said. Actually I am a newer of mylot, but I know one thing that there is no free lunch in the world. If we always send the information without value, it will let mylot full of rubbish, and it will come back to effect us. From what owlwings said, I think I know how to treat with my respones. Thanks a lot, have a good day.

I would have to say that it might be difficult for you to be able to reach payout, but I think that it's possible. I think that you might have a chance to reach it by the end of this month.
