As what i've read in blogs other people suggest that if you are here to earn you need to make a good response so that you'll have a higher chance to get the best response. People say that getting a best response boosts your earnings ( I don't know if this is true ) Anyway, one way to get a best response is of course make you best comment as much as possible(very common). Another way is to respond on discussions with no response yet. That gives you a higher chance of getting the best response of course. Anyway, I like seeing people giving my comment a best response because it'll appear on my profile.

When I enter discussions, I have not thought about whether my response will achieve the Best Response. I put my best foot forward on all discussions I enter and usually am very satisfied that I gave it my all. We do not earn for receiving a Best Response, all it does is give us a nice feeling that our response was considered to be exceptional above all. It is like most say, it gives us Bragging Rights. In other words a smile and happy feeling each time we get the BR notification.

Thanks for the info. I don't know about best response since I just read it on peoples blogs and they keep saying that best response will boost up your earnings which is not true at all. Anyway, it feels great if someone give you a best response.

It does feel good to do your best and to get recognized for it as well. I hope you get a lot of best responses.

Yes it does especially after you receive it and re-read your response it gives you a great feeling that the response was so well written and received. Like GG, I too wish you many best responses.

Just to make it official...no, a best response does not earn you anything.

you don't get monetary reward if your response is selected as the best one. What you are getting out of it is a personal reward. For it to be considered as "best" would mean that your response is relevant to the topic and that you somehow share helpful ideas and information. It's nice to know that your time spent typing what seems to you makes sense is doubly worth it because as proven by the "best response award" means what you have written also does make sense to others, especially to the thread author/topic starter.So, if your motivation for getting the best response is money, i suggest to not pressure yourself to get that much "best responses" as it will not really increase your earnings.

It is nice to get a best response, and I believed for a long time that it helped my earnings, but it does not, at least not directly. It means, however, that your answer is respected, it probably means you got rated +. It just seemed that I always gained more, but it probably meant that I was participating and earning more. It is also nice to include others by responding to discussions with no responses.

Hi Jacruz! I'm also not aware if we earn from getting a best response. But I think we should as a form of reward for getting the pencil icon. But even if we don't earn from it, I'm still happy if I get a best response. I like it when I receive a notification from myLot that I have been marked as the best response. I also like giving best responses. As much as possible I try to resolve my un-resolve discussions and distribute pencils to different myLotters.

That's great. I do the same thing but I wait for about a week or more for my discussion before giving a best response.

binggaling Yeah you're right. The admin already commented in this discussion and said that BR doesn't increase our earnings. I think it simply means giving or receiving a BR won't affect your earning.

The best response will increase your star and thus increase your earnings. I don't really know how the algorithm works but i do notice that it's easier for me to increase my earnings when my star went up.

So meaning a 10 star member earns better than a 1 star member? So if you're already a 10 star no matter how many best response you get nothing will happen to your earnings while a 6star member can earn more when his star goes up by getting a best response.

It's clear now. Admin said that BR doesn't affect our earnings. Probably our reputation does.

Best response will not increase your earning. But your reputation will be increase somehow.

If that is true then it's good to hear that. I want to increase my reputation somehow. So at least I have a little clue.

The best way to get responses are to start a quality and lengthy discussion topic which is very much interesting to other readers.Also we must comment on the response which makes the readers more appealing to be friends

Ashok, i get responses by giving quality responses. Responses that are realistic and applicable to our daily living. But , they are not lengthy, but they make sense. Whenever i respond to a discussion, i just write my opinions and experiences with regards to it. That way, they become realistic . I don't even expect to get the best response, because they are a lot of respondents to every discussion. But one thing is sure though, i don't make them lengthy , because making it so, would tire the starter. Just be direct to the point. You can check my profile and read all my best responses. You can get clues on how they should be actually.

I think thy misunderstand it,you can't earn through best response and i wish i can..But you only earn through posting quality,comments..And if you are posting interesting topics, am sure many people will go to it and give comments and if you back t comments too, you earn through that... Money earning in here is base n your work and not base on others...

I believe you don't earn anything for a best repsonse. It is good to aim for a best response sometimes, as it shows you put a lot of effort into your reponses and people apppreciate this.

I like getting the best response too . Anyway , it means that what i wrote was accepted .I have no idea about the relationship between the best response and earning on mylot . Nevertheless, i don't care about earning on internent . My aim of chatting on mylot is to pratice my English and make some friends.
