Research before joining?

August 18, 2009 10:01am CST
I have been replying to some messages which were about why we joined myLot, and in these I have always mentioned that prior to joining I actually researched the site first, just because that is the way I work. I really like to know that the place I am going to join is not going to scam me or anything, it just sets my mind at ease and in a way lets me know what I am in for. That and somewhere that is said to pay you for for just taking part sounded quite amazing and so I had to find out to what degree that was true. But yea, all this set me to wondering, do other members do the same before joining? So did you research the site first, to maybe see if it was genuine, or did you join right away after hearing about the site? Many thanks, Dranz

I am exactly like you. Before I get my information to a website claiming to pay you for anything, I like to make sure it is a legitimate website and not some scam that is simply trying to get themselves rich. I always scour the internet for information, reviews, testimony, etc. about any website before joining. So far this has worked very well for me and I have yet to fall for one of the many scams that are prevalent out there today. I suggest that everyone do research before signing up for anything just to keep safe. Happy MyLotting!!

Hi Prashanthalva, Sorry it took so long to comment I am amazed that the site has been around so long, it is hard to imagine lol. Come to that you must have been one of the first members to join as well, has it changed a lot since for first arrived? It is great to know that mylot can keep people enthralled so long, and may there be 3 + happy years for you to come Many thanks for the response, Dranz

I think you are not the only one. Anybody who wants to join a site to make money will logically find out more about the site before they join. With so many scam sites aorund, we have to be careful. However, you can rest assured Mylot is a very safe site to join. it is fun, you make a lot of friends and you get paid for iy as well. After finishing all my work on the internet, I like to join all my buddies here at Mylot at their discussions. Somehow I find it very constructive and refreshing to be able to participate and kept my mind off other things. Mylot may pay very little but the knowledge you gain from this site is invaluable. It is also a place to ask and find solutions to your queries and problems. Hope your stay at Mylot will be as fruitful.

You know, if I hadn't been sold on the site already after a few hours constant being here, I would have been from reading your response! Just mentioning the word 'knowledge' would have had me hooked since that is something I love to gain, though as of yet haven't managed to do so on-line, not much anyway. I can already get an idea of what you mean though, one of my main draws here was the quality of the discussions, they are definitely the highest I have found so far. Many thanks for the words, and encouragement and I look forward to gaining that knowledge in the future :) Dranz

Yes ofcourse, I am also like you. I want to know more about the site I am about to join and the reviews about that site so that I am sure about the site I am joining. Like here, Actually I am an old mylotter but I stopped because I did not read reviews about this before. I did not appreciate how mylot have given opportunities to the member here.

that's a good manner to search before join any site. but if one site is pretty new and we can't get enough message about this and even those good reputation sites before they may turn to scam after we joined them. that's not the only source whether we have searched online before we join or not.

Well, sort of. I looked for a few people who could give me proof, then I joined up and looked around to try and find people who had been payed and looked at the threads that said "MyLot just paid me!" or whatever. Anyway, once I was convinced, I started posting and taking part. I'm really glad I chose to join MyLot. It's such a good way to spend free time. Making money and posting on a forum, which is what I enjoy doing!

I think that it's very important to carry out research prior to joining any site. This certainly protects you and you can read the views of others based on their experiences on such sites. This is a goldern rule and one which I follow very closely. Thankfully I have not been unlucky enough to join a site where I was subsequently conned! In terms of posting I think that My Lot is the best site in the world! I certainly carried out some research prior to joining this website and I remember nothing but excellent reviews so I filled in the application form pretty quickly after that! Andrew

No, I did not researched before joining the mylot. I was directed here by one of my friend and I am his referral. I think one should do some research before joining some sites and specially the site where one is expecting to make some money. Not doing research cost me dearly as I did not came here for long since I was not aware of its virtues....

Hi there, yes i do some research also before joining the site. But lately i was lazy reading so i ask friends from other earning sites if they know a certain site and if its legit. I also ask for their payment proof and hows genuine is the site. I am glad that i have friends that working also in earning sites so if i have problem or something that i want to consult they assist me. Anyway, now i am more on asking other members experienced that researching tired of reading , keep on mylotting
