Are tasks worth it and how do they work?

I just noticed the tasks section and after reading the terms and conditions and some of the descriptions of the available tasks, after which I got a question. Are tasks worth writing and spending time on compared to participating in myLot discussions? The terms of conditions state that everything is between the person offering the task and the worker, and myLot is not involved with them. Also, how do tasks exactly work? I didn't understand that from all the descriptions I read... Please enlighten me :D Thanks for all your responses!

The writing tasks posted by Sharonbucks are definately worth it if you like researching and writing. Sharonbucks posts them for myLot therefore if they are done correctly you will definately receive your payment. Sign-up tasks are not allowed but sometimes they appear and are later deleted by admin. MyLot are not responsable for any of the tasks other than those by Sharonbucks. To see them and see the instructions for each one, go to 'available' in the drop-down menu under 'tasks'.

I saw the tasks that were offered by Sharonbucks and liked a few of them as they were within my interests and writing capabilities. I just wanted to know the method of how it works. How long is the suggested length of one paragraph and the extensiveness of the research, as more content will give us a longer entry? If the tasks are done correctly and upto the expectations, is the money added to my myLot account which can be later cashed out? Thanks a lot again! Hope you can answer these new things as well :D

I have never completed the writing tasks but I know that there are many Lotters who do them. I can't tell you anything more than is already in the intructions for each one of them (but maybe someone else will respond here with more info). What I can tell you is that when they are accepted the money is added directly to your earnings under the 'tasks' column in your earnings page and is part of what makes up your minimum amount for payout.

It depends on who you are. If there is a task out there I think I can do, then I'll do it. If I think it'll help me accomplish something or give me that extra push I need, then yes I'll do it. As for how they work I'm sure others have already answered that.

If you are able to finish the tasks in Mylot, I think it's worth. At least it is the shortcut to earn money easily in a short time. You know it's not easy to earn a lot by posting in Mylot. So finishing the tasks here is a good idea. After you finish the tasks, you will wait for some time to let the task creators to approve it. Usually it will take no more than one day. I love China

Tasks, specially those created by Sharon Bucks are worth trying. She is known for being prompt in clearing them but the penultimate lot is still awaiting clearance. I am therefore going slow with her last lot until she clears the ones which are still pending.

the reason why mylot stated that they are not involve is for the fact that if you have question about the task you need to contact the task owner itself as they are the one who pay you and not mylot. just follow the requirements of the task creator and submit once your done, if your task got approved then its a big help specially in writing as you can earn more than a dollar in just one day than just rely on your post here for a dollar in a day. but if your task got rejected and you spent your whole day with it then you will lose your earnings for the day if you could spend that in posting. so for me, if i know i cant make it, i dont bother to take the task as i will rather post and response to earn as i now its already a sure earnings in my part.

If the task is something that interest you and you are up to the task then I would say go for it! I have only done 2 so far and they are still pending so I will see how I did. As far as I know if you look in your dashboard you will see a line that implies that your task earnings are tabulated with your mylot earnings. Good luck and have fun!
