Just wondering is it against the rule to talk about mylot earnings? I'm just wondering because the rules state that it against to make false computation of how to earn in mylot. How about sharing your experience to how you earn from mylots? Is it against the rules to? .. for example I always post a comments to the new comers how I earn. Or my strategy in mylot. Is is against the rule to share my strategy? ... And another one.. Replying to each comments in my post is against the rule.. I can't earn more if I do that.. .. My question is..Is it against the rule? or is it okay but you will not get paid more if you tried to reply to all who give comments in your post? ... For me I have an obligation to give some pleasantry comply to each of comments that I received. How will they know that I read and appreciate their comments if I don't reply.. .. I just want to make this rule a little clearer.. Is is against to reply each comments? or is it okay but you can't be paid by each replied comments that I made? ... Its fine with me if I don't get paid that much..As long as I don't violate mylots rules. Because I'm having fun conversing with other mylotters.. But if its against the rules then what percentage can I maximize to make a reply comments? thanks.

Hi bulastika! The previous responses have explained certain aspects of your queries and n the FAQs you will find the rest. Basically we earn for ALL our own activity here. We earn for starting a discussion (if it receives 2 responses or 1 response + 1 comment) and then we earn for all of our further activity on the discussion itself. A discussion bever expires so we can go on commenting on the responses forever and that will add to our earnings. From the FAQs: [i]'What can I do to increase my earnings? What an excellent question, and one we hope every myLot user will ask. Use myLot, post discussions, respond to discussions. Post quality content. For example, generate discussions that engage other users and provide insightful responses and comments to other users discussions to further the topic'[/i] Commenting is waht turns the original topic into a real discussion and definately increases our earnings but, as I sadi above, just saying 'thank you' is not enough and therefore not contributing to earnings at all. All dicsussions asking 'how much do you earn' are polls. Those saying 'I earnt xxx' are milestones. Those asking for specific amounts for each activity fall under the aglorithim analysis violation making them cause for deletion. When users ask how to earn here, there is only one answer - post, post and post more because it is with activity that we earn and each will earn differently depending upon where they post. Posting on discussions which are violations will earn nothing as posts will be deleted, while starting one discussion and keeping it moving with comments is exactly what is suggested in the FAQs. : http://www.mylot.com/o/faq/faq6.aspx#14

Thank you for sharing that. I appreciate your vast mylot expertise, without you this site would be in turmoil. I now know what discussions are right and I'm so relieved, it has been playing on my mind for some time now so thank you again for putting my mind at rest. Your expert tutorials are well accepted by me.

lol faeryoftheshire @ 'turmoil'. I like to see happy Lotters having fun and not worrying about their earnings and all the rest. When I get the chance to dish out some of the advice concerning the things that I have learnt over the years then I am more than happy to do so, hoping that many, even without responding, will make use of them. There is a lot of fun to be had on here and FUN adds up to FUNDS!

FUN adds to FUNDS I like that, you sure are a genius when it comes to these little sayings. I remember your discussion about the SCAM, yet another genius quote from the voice of mylot. I think your exerience here is vital for the future of this site because with so many wayward members not reading the guidelines someone has to keep them all in line and point them in the right way. You are totally indespensible here, go girl.

I think it is not against the rule about sharing the strategies of earning money in discussions and post or discuss how can we earn in my lot? as i remembered when i joined my lot my first topic was how to earn in my lot and a very kind person told me each and everything and i am still following it but yes telling false computation of how much you earn by posting one post is against the rules and the one who make this kind of topic get deleted as it is against the rules and one must not do this. Have a nice day and happy earning.

Yeah..Me to..I just want to know the boundary between the okay and the not. For example sometimes I say I earn 30 cents to 1 dollar a day per post.. Is that against the rules? .. Or if I say that the computation of your earning is 150 words will be computed like this and like that..I think that what the rule means right? But if I say that this is how much I earn I think it not against the rules right? .... How about the comments? in "don't" it state that you can't reply to all comments done in your post. You will not get paid more even you reply to all of their comments.. I'm fine with that as long I don't violate the rule.. But if the rule state that I must not reply to all comments..Then I will stop.. I'm like feeling its my obligation to reply to each comments I received.

There is a misunderstanding I fear. In the Guidelines it states 'Don't Thank everyone that responds or comments on your discussion. This will not increase your earnings' which means NOT to ONLY say 'thank you' or 'thanks for your response'. The more your comments elaborate and further the topic, then the more worthwhile they are and the more the contribute to the discussion. Just a simple 'thank you' does nothing to further the topic and should not be done. : http://www.mylot.com/o/guidelines.aspx

I think you need to educate your self about the rules in mylot my friend. Read the TOS theirs a lot of rules to follow. ... My post is about only the two "don't" in mylot rules ...Their still lots of "don't" in TOS that you need to read and try to understand. Thank you. And good luck

Welcome to myLot jabelufiroz! We cannot talk about 'anything under the sun' here and we should absolutely be aware of the Guidelines so that we do not risk losing our posts. : http://www.mylot.com/o/guidelines.aspx

Yes, it is, as we aren't allowed to start a discussion about how much we have made whether it be daily weekly or monthly. The reason for that is, we all are paid differently, and if we start saying how much we earn, then everyone would be expected to ean the same thing, and we just don't. If any discussions are started talking about earnings, then they are deleted, and no one eanrs, including the one who respond as well. It is good that you ask this though, as most don't and will post a discussion aobut earnings, and it ends up gettting deleted, and they wonder why. if they would only read the guidelines they would know what they can and can't do in here. I hope this has helped you understand what you can and can't do in here. Good luck to you and happy mylotting.

Thanks..I just want to point them on the right direction. That's that I want.. I wonder if theirs a exception to the rules? I'm no saying that this is my strategy use it and you earn more.. It just that this is my strategy and it paid me well. Sooner or later that newbies will make his or her own strategy. But we need to guide them when they start. When I started I don't even know what mylot is.. So its really hard to be a newbies unless theirs somebody who guides you. That what I'm pointing out.

A very nice explanation on this rosekiss. I'm pretty sure now other members would be able to have a clear idea of why this is so. And as a consequence, it will spare others from not being able to earn from their posts due to the deletion of the discussions.

Can I disagree? I think if you analyst the wordings it state that don't give false computation.. Computation means algorithm right? So as long as you don't give information about how to compute your earning I think it safe to talk about earning and strategies.. ..

Yeah..I hope and thanks them for that..(mylot) I hate when people just just put url links and self promote them self in my own post. That why I post a topic like this.. To know more about the mylot rules.. Because its ironic when I hate mylots members who violate mylots rules but same time I violate the rules to.. .. So before I judge other I want to know first if I'm also violate mylot rules.. ... thank for all your support.

I really don't know if it's against the rules to talk about your earning with mylot. When I first signed up with mylot last year it seemed as if many people were discussing this subject. As far as responding to all the comments I receive for discussions I've started, it doesn't seem possible. I would love to be able to do that but it would take a tremendous amount of time. I do appreciate when people comment or if the subject is interesting to someone else. I'm actually trying to get more information myself about how to maximize earning. I enjoy writing and I think it's great to get paid for it(even a minimal amount such as we get for mylot)

Yeah..Mylot have strict rules and regulations which are mentioned in their terms of service.. You are not allowed to talk about individual earnings.U cant post any links in your discussions or responses regarding your earnings or any other material..But still you can talk about your earning strategies and extent of myloting. One can guess your average earnings through your mylot reputation..So dont worry about it..Happy mylotting..

Hello bulastika this is checkmail and think its against the mylo rules to discuss about mylot earnings.Many of mine discusions and responses were automatically deleted byt eh mylot admin just for this reason.Yeah i rec an cut in mine total earning at mylot very often.But see sometimes its allowed or what, as your this discussion is still on the mylot, in morning avoided it, but now am responding to this discussion.Thinks its the rule of mylot that makes judgement over here.Anyways Happy Mylotting.

Yeah... I think admin also understand the essence of this topic that way. But if admin decide to removed this post because of violation I'm fine also. Hopes other will understand why I make a post like this.. For me its more to understand the rule rather than break the rule. Because some member don't even know that rules exist in mylot. .. Beside I also want to help newbies..That why I want to know some specific to the dot explanation of some rules that I think I can go overboard if I'm not careful.

i think it is allowed to share your strategies and tips on how to earn much higher in mylot. what is not allowed, in my knowledge, is making "false computation of earnings." it is difficult to calculate earnings here in mylot. we can only approximate, but there are tips on how to maximize earnings. i think that is allowed to be shared since that's what friends do - help each other. responding to replies and comments is advisable and commendable to do. it will further encourage other people to continue responding to your discussions. however, i am not sure if that adds to your earnings. goodluck!

I still don't received any warning yet or I don't know if I see one that's why. lolz But I want to help newbies how to be a successful mylotters.. Thanks the problems of rules. A sentence or a paragraph long and open to all kind of interpretation.
