ryueneral read the questions and answers it will tell you all about the stars and how you get them and when and what and why, darn it just read the information as it would take us ten days to tell you all that when you could read it in ten minutes for yourself.

Okay, so we all know you are going to go read everything everyone has told you. We really are glad you are here. We do like new users and like to help them help themselves. In addition to what you have already been told, I will tell you to have fun, talk with people, do not just post something and leave it. One of the favorite sayings here is I write, I earn, you write, you earn, so even if you start a discussion that gets a hundred responses, if you do not comment to those responses with a meaningful comment you will only earn for the discussion one time. If you make comments you will earn a lot more. Oh, and we do not talk about how much we earn or what we earn for, we earn for participation, the admin of MyLot had developed a proprietary algorithm that they prefer to keep secret. Let us just say that "more is better" and a longer, meaningful post will earn more than a short word or two. Interesting posts, well, what do you find interesting? Do not ask us for our favorite things, as that is considered a poll. Do not post other earning links or tell us to check your profile. Feel free to request interesting people to become your friends, then turn on their notifications so that you know when they post and they know when you post and then they can respond. Did I give you enough information to go over, after you read everything?

Welcome, ryueneral, Welcome to the community. The basic tips everyone will give you, is to read the FAQs and Guidelines thoroughly. You need to know what they are to keep yourself within the boundaries. http://www.mylot.com/o/faq.aspx http://www.mylot.com/o/topguidelines.aspx The best way to earn is to participate. Your earning is proportional to how much you post. But your posts need to have quality. It means that your post should contribute to the discussion you are posting in and if you can try posting in atleast 3-4 sentences. Hope this helps. There are a lot of experienced mylotters around and they are very helpful. I am sure they will fill you in on the rest.

Not a problem. By the way, as a future reference always consider the faqs and guidelines before posting something as many people do not like it and understandably so...

Welcome to mylot I hope this, your first discussion be just the begining of thousands discussions. Tips: Don't think you will get money soon here. You will get the payment the 15th of each month. As much discussion you begin more money you will make. Try to answer all the answer that you receive. Tags your discussion, it will make easier for the people to find your discussion and respond them. Take at least three hours daily. Search your discussions before to begin them because if they find out that this discussion was already beggined they will delete your discussion. Well I think that's it, if I remember anything else I will tell you later, if you have ny question, here I am!!. Blesses!.

Hello ryueneral, Welcome to MYLOT family. Yeah the community is very interesting you may have known it by now. My suggestion for earnings here is to go through the FAQs & guidelines thoroughly rather asking with the users.And then also if there are doubts then its better to check some old discussions surely you will get the answers. Secondly more you are active more will be your earnings here. As far your star against your user name you will get it once your activity rating reaches 100. Best wishes from my side hope you will enjoy MYLOTTING.

Pretty well what everone else has said. Enjoy yourself is the key tip I think. Just have fun here talking to the world and learning so much about other people and their customs and let the pennies add up quietly in the background. The one important thing that you can be sure of here at Mylot is that no matter how long it takes you to get paid - you will get paid.

Welcome to the forum! One thing I can tell you straightaway is that you look at this forum as a hobby, a forum where you can interact, make friends, and slowly earn some money.Many people get disappointed because earnings are quite slow here. But I can guarantee you that you would get some really good friends in due course of time. Keep writing genuine responses and start good topics for discussion and you would like the spirit of camraderie here. You would find answers to many of your questions here. SLowly, you would come to know of other money making opportunities also.
