They had some massive problems the other day with the system, perhaps you got caught in the middle of that? Also Mylot pays according to the income they receive so some times the payment will vary! Just keep doing what your doing, if your not satisfied with what you earn then you have to type more! tdemex

Let me further point out your star rating also has a bearing on your earnings and at a 6 your not at the top of the heap! T----

I don't know exact percentages but the lower rating pays less! You bring it up by having people give you a plus rating in your posts and responses! when you reach 100 posts you see your star and the number reflects how people rated you during this period! New people here don't understand that and make stupid, well not stupid, but mistakes here. They rush in and don't read the rules or ask for help! They then post and post and post thinking this is the way to make cash! If you stick around here you will see this over and over! They use text instead of English, make spelling mistakes and just plain ask dumb questions! People rate this and then when they reach 100 and their star is a 5 they tend to blame everyone else for this! LOL! There is a learning curve here it takes time to learn the ropes! Just be sincere and use spell check take your time there's no hurry here! Be your self make GOOD friends and it'll work out! your star will rise! It's much harder to bring up your rating when you have as many posts as I do! tdemex

Hey tdemex, I never fully understood how to rate people until I just read your comment. Now I know how to do it and I am surely going to be using that from here on out. I also never realized that the star index had any kind of a bearing on what you were earning, I'm not even a newbie and I learned something today. I really appreciatiate that, Thanks!!

Nope, earning on MyLot isn't that hard If you have some time to dedicate to the forum everyday. If your earnings haven't increased that much it means that maybe not all of your comments were considered "quality answers". I checked some of your answers and you tend to answer by writing a couple of sentences only, maybe you should try to elaborate a little more on your responses. Also, ten comments will never make you earn that much, it takes you much more time and a lot more comments to earn money on this forum. There are many discussions that teach you some guidelines on how to increase your earnings on MyLot but more or less it's all about trying to write quality discussions and comments :) don't give up anyway :)

I am new in mylot and information like that is very helpful to a new member like me. I do agree that comments should be helpful to anyone who reads it. We are all here not just to earn money but to give quality information to other members. Thanks for the information.:)

Try responding with good quality answers. I normally answer with about 5-8 lines. By saying "thanks" or "Wow. that's a shock",(i just made those up sorry) you wont get much money. If you put time into your answers you'll start earning more. I spent about 10 minutes responding with good quality answers, and i did about 15, and when i next logged on i hadn't been credited. But 2 days later, I got 28 cents into my account. I doubt you'll get the payout in a week unless you find good tasks, but If you spend time in the forums you'll have it in no time.

It is hard to earn on mylot, but if we are careful as to what we post to and make our posts quality (more than a few sentences), then we should be able to earn more than one penny per ten posts. Did you notice a decrease in your number of posts? If the answer is yes, then some of the discussions more than likely got deleted due to violating guidelines. If we remember these two things then we should see an increase in our earnings. Good luck and happy mylotting! PS Apparently star rating can affect earning potential as well. In other words the higher the star the better the earnings. I hope this helps!

Really? Maybe you need to post a very long and informative response for you to earn more than a cent. Give a detailed and informative response to the posted discussion and you will earn more.

myLot has had trouble last week. Probably that. And probably you need to work harder. I am new here, but steadily making 10-15 points advance daily posting things.

i feel the same way,actually! It has always been a little hard to earn much on mylot! But i don't think that it is only a place for making money.Apparently,you focus too much on getting money,so you will feel no any motivation to make go far.In my view,it is just a room for having fun and you will be happy if you don't take money too seriously!

Sometimes the update of the earning is a bit late but I dont know in your situation. I once experienced posting many comments but after 24 hours my earnings only got 1 cent increase. but in the othere day the earnings grew bigger. So I guess I should just wait for it.

I have not noticed any problems lately. I don't think it is just based on the number of comments, but the length and content of the comments as well. I have noticed that sometimes it takes longer for my earnings to update then other times.

hello luffy7, we are being paid according on how we responsed and the quality of our response or post. i think it's not the quantity but the quality. for i posts more than my usual days back and still my earning was still the same. made me sad a little beat but found it a challenge. maybe some of my posts that time has no sense at all that's why my earning did not changed. hope i can get better earning today and the days to come.

It seems it is very low earning for you to post 10 comments. Are they very short posts? Short posts are not regarded as "quality" ones and perhaps this is why you earn so little? Two days ago I earned USD0.25 and I forgot how many posts I had made. I wrote few posts yesterday but it seemed the earning was not updated yet. Otherwise my earning would be zero. I love China

I'm fairly new here but I've not encountered that problem as of yet. The only thing I could suggest is that some of your posts may have been too short to be considered a good enough quality post to get paid. I heard that your rating has something to do with earning as well but I don't totally understand the rating system. I just got over the 100 post mark this weekend and even though almost all of my posts are at least a long paragraph or several and I have received 4 best responses so far, my rating is only a 4. Maybe it just takes time and more people actually rating you since I'm sure a lot of people don't rate all the time. Just keep posting, that's what I'm going to do.

I am making as I have always made but sometimes I do not get credit for a few days then it posts. Maybe it is just getting caught up but seems if you do not answer in a quality manner credit is less. Try doing some tasks with postings and watch your earnings improve.

My advice? Be patient and you'll get paid for it. You should also keep in mind of the guidelines (see the link at the bottom of the page) to make sure you aren't losing for breaking the rules.

hi friend i feel hard to earn in my lot than any other sites i have visited i feel comfortable with those who pay only cents but they will not take this much time to get paid...the one i have started with this already paid two times and this not yet crossed my half the amount required for payment..if not any tasks are performed i would not have reached or earned at least this ...even referrals income is too low and their incomes takes more 1 year to have my first payment...they feel heard to work on this site and trying to avoid it...........

There was a bug last weekend but it was fixed. My earnings seem to be consistent. Did you leave really short responses? Really short responses sometimes don't bring in as much as ones that are at least 4 lines or more. I always try and be sure to type at least 4 lines every time and my earning seem to stay very consistent that way. Hope this helps.
