do you know if the number of responses to any discussion made by one control the earning for that particular discussion?how can these responses determine the earning?i mean to say if i get 10 responses to any of my discussion will be higher than that if i would get 5 responses for that discussion?do the earning also depends upon the quality of the responses ?

You are paid according to the quality of YOUR participation, not that of others. I think that is sufficiently clear from reading the FAQs. The more responses you get to a discussion, the more chances you have of writing quality comments as a reply. That is what the word 'discussion' means.

Hi there Owl and good to see you lending a hand again I wonder why so many think that if others respond then they will be earning

I think it's because a lot of users have the idea that MyLot's earnings system is like a popularity contest. Discussions with more responses must be more popular than those that only have a couple of responses, after all...

To be specific, a discussion only earns you anything, I believe, once it has had at least ONE response. The more responses you get, the more people are likely to rate your discussion by using the '+' button and the ratings system (as it says in the FAQs) does have an influence on our earnings. The better quality your discussions, the more likely you are to earn plusses from those who participate and that will obviously have an effect on your earnings. As it says in the Guidelines, we are no allowed to 'inaccurately describe the earnings system'. The above are my conclusions from reading what information is already available in the FAQs and Guidelines, so I hope that they are not inaccurate! It is worth pointing out, too, that specifically asking for positive ratings is against the Guidelines. Your discussions and responses must stand on their own merit!

I'm not clear on this but you must get something for discussions. If you start a discussion and get responses you are making a good contribution to the site - aren't you ?

If you start a discussion and get responses then you have almost reached your goal. To make it into a discussion, which is what we earn for doing, you must get back and comment on those responses, otherwise it remains a question and answer and not a discussion.

If you ger a thousand responses you won´t get more earnings. Those responses are other mylotters participations. As I am spending my time responding to you. BUT if you comment on my answer, then you are participating. You are paid for what you do, not for what others do. Fair, don´t you think?

Our earnings purely depends on the quality of the content. The number of responses to our discussions will not boost our earnings.At the same time, if we leave some comments to the responses that our discussions are receiving, then we will be paid for that. Here will be paid for what are doing.Each and everything you type in mylot,will give us the earning , except the personal messaging.But everything should be of good quality.
