OK I've just joined mylots today viewed serval of YouTube video and read serval blogs about how to use it and how to maneuver around the site and I'm still confused it says that when you respond to a disscusion you receive some cents or change but is that only if you have been a member for a long time? Because I recently replied to to a discussion and didn't receive anything can someone please help me out.

Welcome to myLot. You will get your cents if your response was within the rules and guidelines which is found at the bottom of the page. Also, there are frequently asked questions (FAQ) at the bottom for you to check out too. Usually, you'll have your money posted within a day. On the weekends it takes longer because I don't think no one is here, but it will be updated on Monday. Make friends with people and if you start a discussion, please respond back to people who are responding to you, such as me, haha. People like to be answered. When you do respond back in a discussion you made, you do not get cents for it. You only get money for responses in other people's discussions. Out of everything here, just have fun and enjoy yourself.

yes. anything new will be confusing or alarming. after a few days you will be more at home. For example I joined 4sync.com site. It is confusing for me. i have to learn step by step. this applies to you also in this site. get more friends. participate more and earn more.

kissykissy if you had used the links mylot sent you and not gone to that other crap that gives mostly false information you would have read the guidelines and the FAQs and the TOS of mylot. other blogs have been known for badly written false information. You are NOT GIVEN A RATE FOR EACH RESPONSE OR DISCUSSION YOU MAKE SO WHAT YOU READ IS COMPLETE HUEY.if you did not receive any earnings it is because you only have five points of participation. we are paid for quality posts and paid for what we do here each 24 hour period. If you do quality writing not one or two words or one line which my lot does not pay for you will earn but know too if you make a discussion and we give you responses we get paid for those. You must type back comments on each response and you will earn if you do quality work.My lot is not confusing to use if youj would read only the information mylot provided not some off beat stupid silly blog.Each thing you do is not shown in the earnings as its based on what you do in a 24 hour period thenm it shows about ten or eleven am here in most of the US . others here will make the pay period clearer for you. read our responses. so far this month I have made 26 dollars. You will earn and also make rich friendships which are worth more than the earnings learn this motto" I TYPE,I EARN. YOU TYPE YOU EARN. SIMPLE

no no not at all I am not rude you misunderstand I have been here about as long as Forever the Lamb so I know a few things and if somehow you saw something as rude, I sure never intended it.;see I have been ill for five days and just an h our or so returned back to Gold crest retirement center. once you get to know me I think you will like me, I hope. looking this over please understand there is a lot of false information floating on the net about our Mylot an d you did not know that, so we all are telling you that, each in his or her own way. you keep with it here you will learn the ropes soon AS for rude telling you about those other sites that do not always get all the facts straight I fail to see how that is rude. you just jumped to the conclusion because I am long winded I was being mean or rude to you, I am what I am and a lot of people here like me,hope you will too;.I am still recovering from an illness so may lack in tact but never intended to be rude to you. we just met oh I know what I wanted to say. in the guidelines mylot admins says do not thank people as we will not pay for that. its up to you, I was trying in my way to be helpful to someone I just met. Also to call me rude when you just met me is not very kind.welcome to mylot.

How about a response from a fellow newbie? I too find it confusing to use at first. I'm trying to find the most optimum way possible where I can post in topics that I have most interest in. Currently, all I see is everything everywhere. I guess I'll have to sort out my interests a little bit. Don't worry about your earnings. If you see from the earnings page they said the page will update once a day. Therefore, you can only see how much you earn tomorrow. And perhaps like someone mentioned above, it may not update on weekends. Let's try it out for a week or so and see how mylot functions. Hopefully we'll get used to it. Enjoy and good luck!

hi both of you. some of the things in the guidelines I think could be worded better but like me when I first came here you will find your way around and it will get easier. also I found that making friends helped me to learn my way around from those who had been here longer. I remember when I made my first discussion I got only a few answers and felt confused, then this kind older mylotter told me not to pick out the best response too soon and soon I was getting more responses. When I first joined I was working part time in the library so like most here did not have a lot of time to be in mylot. also I was told to not be afraid to ask others questions here.

What is good about Mylot is you can choose your interests. Discussions are great, I hope you like them. Do you like talking about certain things? Anything in particular? There are several tabs as you can see where you might find something you like. It is good to check back now and then to see if there is anything new. Have fun. Rewards will come.

Hey kiss, Welcome to mylot. I think mylot alogarithm will count your earning a few days later perhapes. Just carry on with posting intelligent, informative and interesting response or comment just like torrent rains of rainy season. Promote your referral link in networking sites like twitter or facebook. What ever site you visit leave behind your referral link. Some one must step on your link. Collect at least hundred active referrals and enjoy a great change of your mylot financial career. Wish you do a lot in mylot.

The thing about myLot is that you will be paid the next day. Sometimes this can be difficult to make you want to keep going but do not be discouraged because you will get those tomorrow and be excited. But make sure that your post is pretty well written and that you have put some effort into your response or discussion. myLot will pay you well for your posts if they are good quality. If you write only one sentence, you will get very little for your response. I hope you will enjoy this place as much as we all do.

Hello KissyKissy and we[come to myLot . I'm sorry that you find myLot confusing. For me it is easier to use than other discussion boards I have been on. To begin with your discussions and responses should be at least three to four lines long. The longer the more you make. Your earnings are not posted until the next day. Mine are posted around noon. Yours will depend on where your are at. The number in the parentheses is the number of discussions and responses you have made. Be sure to read the guidlines to know what you can and cannot uses as a discussion or how to respond. They are listed below. Welcome aboard.

welcome to mylot. happy to note you saw youtube videos and read several blogs to know about mylot. whenever you get doubt ask like this and it will be clarified by our members. you can also go through FAQ relating to discussions. The concept is -- I type, I earn. You type, you earn. You would have understood. If you participate more -- descriptive writing -- you may earn more. We will not get any earning changed every time we post a response. For example now that I am posting a response immediately my earnings will not be recalculated. Whatever we post today --for these earnings will be added to our account tomorrow morning - mylot time -- 10am or 11 am as the case may be and you will see it appears on top of mylot page - your id - new discussion-profile-earnings - preferences. wait. participate and earn.

Kissy I have been here for over six years. Boy when I have read the responses to this discussion I have learned a lot that I didn't know. I have read the guidlines and FAQs but today I learned some new things. I was under the impression that responding to responses on your own discussion did not earn you any thing. I always responded to keep my discussions interesting. Never too old to learn something new. I want to thank every one for all the information that they gave here.

As other people have said it is really easy once you read all of the pain in the hiney FAQ & guidelines. They are here for our benefit though. =) Also, definitely have fun here. Don't make it a chore or that is exactly what it will feel like! Most people here LOVE being here. Most of the people here are super nice. The others, well, just ignore them. Lol. I think you will like it here. Welcome and I hope you enjoy it as much as we all do!
