Do u think at myLot, money is the only incentive that keeps people active?

I don't think so. Besides this incentive there is also BIG incentive, which is knowledge. You get in touch with people all around the world, you can make discussion on various topics, thus knowledge is getting shared here. I think that money is not the only incentive that keeps people active, person who is hungry about knowledge will keep himself active, also if there's no incentives like money. What do u think abt this?

I think initially the incentive to talk on MYlot is money. After all , if someone asked you to join a forum , u wouldn't be that interested unless they said you can earn money. Eventually though , people realise that Mylot is more than making money: it's about socialising-talking with ur lot :)

Right, I wouldn't be interested to join any forum suggested by any friend unless there's money.

No. It was the reason I joined though. I'm actually a newbie here. But I am really enjoying myself. I have not earned much but I really like responding to the discussions. But I think, the quality of mylot actually is because of the incentive. You get paid with every quality post you had right? But as for me, I just like joining the discussions. It's very stimulating for my brains and interacting with different kinds of people is just great.

That's true...but at first, people get attracted to mylot because you could earn money here. But as time passes by, you actually gain more here, like what you said...knowledge. There are a lot of people from different countries here and you just learn from each other.

Yeah right, at first people get attracted here only for money, and then they'll start enjoying here. I am also one of them. He he......

in my opinion the money program on mylot is important for its members to be active here!!may be it is not the only one motivation surely to answer or post discussions here but i think the majority of people are here due to the reward program!!

Hmmm.........Majority of pepople are here for money, I think that if money would be here than this forum wouldn't be so active like it's now. What u say?

I've been a member of mylot for along time and still I say I am here for the money. I dont care to make friends on here by getting to know someone. I add friends so I can see what interesting discussions they post for me to respond to so I can earn money for posting. If I wasent here to make money I would rarely put up new discussions or leave people comments. Sometimes I come here just to get other peoples opinions on a subject and earning the money for doing that is just an added bonus but it doesnt happen very often that I need an unbiased opinion on something. Most time the I would just post the question on facebook but if it was something that I needed more imput on I could post the question here instead and get a more vast audience.

I think here at myLot money is primary reason then knowledge, fun, whatever comes secondary.

For it is the biggest incentive to be active on Mylot. The other incentives is for me is to learn to deal with people on the internet. The good,the bad and the ugly. The third reason it keeps me busy is if I didn't have mylot I would be pretty bored! It also makes me think and keeps my mind active.

Knowledge and more information on how to make money online is the biggest reward for us myLotters. By being active we are awarded with cash incentives. By being observant and friendly with other myLot people, we gain knowledge and it might help us more on making money and build our online empire quickly.

For me personally, the money factor is a great motivator. I never would have been here if it weren't for that but it's also undeniable that I found great people here, I also learned a lot, built friendships too but to be really honest, the reason I strive to be active is the financial gain. If ever myLot withdraws their financial share to the users, I think I will not be as active but I will visit it from time to time to check on my friends. That is if, they're still here. :(

I think the main incentive of the mylot users is to make money. I am also here to make money. But it's funny also. Sharing the thoughts posting responses making new friends and all this is a fun. If anyone is interested in social networking they will find this site interesting too. So primarily we are here for earning money but when we get used to this site we start to love it and automatically come here for fun

i think money is the incentive that keeps people active. i join this mylots as my friend tell me that it got incentive. However, besides incentive, i can gain more kowledge from every one from the tpoic that they have discuss.

Right, if there won't be money, discussions and responses will slow down.

I really do not think that money is an incentive on myLot, given that you do not earn much. Rather, money is just a bonus for participating on this site. You use the site to interact with other people, share thoughts and ideas, and to spread your knowledge to others.

Earning is just secondary here, well you can't deny the fact that there is money in here. But the most important thing here is that you enjoy what you're doing. You learned from you're doing. You gain new friends and enjoy exchanging thoughts with them

i dont think that people are here just because of the money, for the money we earn here is not as big as the lesson we can learn. people we can help and problems that has gained answers. i am here for three years now and i can say that there are times that i can not be at mylot because of work and responsibilities, but still even i earn on my work i come back here to learn, to relax and to laugh. mylot is fun. if i stop working and focus only here i know that i can not support my family in the way that i am doing it now. sometimes i only reach the pay outs three months after the last one but still i am here. not because of earning but more on learning the earning is just like a dessert, it is in small serving but you will thank that you got a small piece. welcome to the wonderful world of mylot and hope to see you more.

No. The connection and rapport you built with MyLotters are much more important. Actually, earning here is a bit slow. But I still enjoy MyLot because I am learning and when I want to know something, fortunately, I get replies quickly.
@keval32 (1099)

nope i believe being in mylot for how many days gives me an idea about how to increase my earnings but i am very wrong because mylot itself is an experience that can never change mylife. the knowledge that it has given me has motivated me to be a better english speeker and the best i want to be.. i improved my typing speed for a short amount of time... its really a thanks to mylot... =)

at first maybe, but then as the times goes by friends are the most caused that makes people stay active
@HADDOWZ (1481)

It cant be the money that keeps me coming back to myLot to interact on hot topics such as this one, as I hardly earn any money at all. I do this just for fun and to pass the time. It can be most interesting reading other peoples views on different topics and subjects not matter how diverse.
@kedralynn (992)

Not at all. I mean sure it's why I joined the site. I read somewhere about making money posting in forums. But now I'm here because it's fun, I learn things, and because I've made some nice new friends. The money is just a nice bonus that I certainly don't mind! I think I'd be upset if we stopped getting paid but I'd still keep posting here :)
7 May 10
yes the money is the another reason here, why the poples so active

Only a part role money plays. It keeps the little child in us laughing and in good humor to keep going on and on post after the post.
