Have you encountered doing a tasks by checking the details first, just looking if you can accomplish it before accepting it? This is my way of handling tasks here in mylot. Im afraid i may not finish it before the time expires. But the bad thing was, when im done checking the details, i immediately work on it and when im almost done and decided to tick the accept button on my choice of task, it says "sorry no more slots available on this tasks" something like that, i don't remember exactly what it is. So, i felt bad, useless effort and the most important thing, "NO REWARD". Haha! Now, i learned my lesson! Have you been in this situation before?

That is exactly how I do my tasks both on here and on microworkers. But before I do I make sure they are enough slots to be able to do the task. Reason why I do it that way is that I do not want to feel the pressures of having only so many minutes to be able to complete the task. Thus far I have been successful with it.

you mean, in times, even if you have accepted and submitted the tasks its possible that you wont get paid? maybe if this case usually happens, mylot should add more details about when tasks are accepted and submitted. just to be fair. right? i don't know if mylot already have details like that cause its just a week since i joined here, and there are lot of things that i don't know and i should know. thanks for sharing your experience.
