i have been around 3 years and counting and every time i look to find out how mylot pays, i end up no where. i have tried to calculate how they pay users and can't find out. but one thing for sure: you are not paid for posting as every one spreads about mylot but you are paid for quality. so to all users and also for starter post quality content and don't just post.

kai9999 You are here for three years. I have not met you. I have been walking around mylot ground quite frequently. Quality is important. Your earnings depends on your mylot reputation also. You must have a lot of friends who will rate your response/comments/replies + so that you can earn more also. As you know this is a place for sharing of information and to spend time happily and one should not rely on this for earnings. I am sure you are employed elsewhere gainfully.

"You must have a lot of friends who will rate your response/comments/replies + " Ravi that is WRONG information! MyLot do not tell us that we must have a lot of friends to plus rate our posts. Indeed too much plussing is abuse of the rating system in the same way that too much negative rating is too The explanation of how to use the rating system is here: http://www.mylot.com/o/faq/faq17.aspx#2 and NOWHERE do myLot tell us to rate friends' posts.

Earnings depend on many factors including, but not limited to, quality, activity and reputation. Having many friends is not a factor in earnings because many of them don't rate, many of them don't respond on our topics and many of them don't comment back when we respond on theirs therefore giving us no chance to post again and earn again too.

This may seem obvious but you seem to be confused, so: 1) MyLot pay their users monthly once a person has reached at least $10 by the last day of any month. 2) MyLot ONLY use PayPal, so, unfortunately, if PayPal is not supported in your country, you are out of luck. (However, as long as you merely log in at least once in 90 days, MyLot will keep your earnings for you until such time as PayPal becomes available in your country). Apart from the Guide which you yourself already posted here: http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/2705708.aspx a month ago, you should find the following points useful: 3) "I type, I earn; YOU type, YOU earn!" MyLot only pays people for THEIR OWN participation (with the exception of Referral earnings, of course). It makes no difference how many people respond to a discussion you start, you will not earn a penny more unless you come back to your discussions and post good quality comments in reply to the people who responded. 4) Earnings are calculated according to a complex (and proprietary) algorithm which takes many things into account to judge an overall 'quality of participation' for each 24 hour period, including the ratings which other people give your discussions, responses and comments. It is impossible to guess at the way that the algorithm works and there is no useful information to be gained by trying to calculate any kind of 'average' earning 'per post'.

All the rubbish that you can read on other sites by other users here telling that myLot pays to post is indeed just that, RUBBISH! They do it to gain referrals who they then never help and who usually leave soon after joining because the promises that they read were not kept MyLot themselves tell us what to do to earn here. It is ALL in the FAQs: Just in case you can't find it this is the link: http://www.mylot.com/o/faq/faq6.aspx#14 Read it carefully and you will see exactly how to earn. This discussion explains it too: http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/2652000.aspx

Maybe you are after money and not the way of participating things in this site. not sure if you really understand the point of being paid for quality post because your title speaks for it that you didn't understand the site. one big mistake is calculating the earnings, which never works. just enjoy being here in mylot and post.

that's what i am doing, i have come here to make money and later left mylot for a while and return here, it's fun to be here and i am not here to make money but once in a while a surprise occurs in earnings area and out of curiosity likes to know how mylot earnings works...

I think taking my lot as an earning site is unfair.what you are doing here?i think nothing but just enjoyment and sharing.what they give to you is worth much than we do i think.

i don't it is worth of paying when you compare it as earning site but when you compare with earning from a fun site, it makes a worth.

Hi kai! I have been here for a few months and I really enjoy my stay here, so I never have enough time to look deeply into that matter. As I always said before I came here not because I want to earn money but to look for referrals. But as I read the guidelines, I found out that this thing cannot be done on the discussion area. I look for referrals, I found friends. That thing is enough for me. I came here for comfort. I came here to express. And the earnings? Those are bonus actually! Have a nice day!

i think that is the reason why mylot is still booming and going. if we are able to understand how they calculate and pay the users then some users might try and abuse mylot and then we will all end up no where to go. I am happy that mylot stays the way it is

yes you are right, if some one finds the way mylot does, it certainly causes down fall of mylot. mylot staff is good at what they do (please don't compare with bigger brands like facebook).

hi kai999 you have to participate a lot to make real earnings here and always comment back on the responses we all give you as you do not get paid for those, w e do. remember this slogan I type I get paid,you type you get paid.do not try to calculate as my lot says to us d o not ask about our algorithm a s its a secret. m ylot has no set rates. so they can pay more fo r top q uality posts and less for low quality. just try to do a little better quality and participate a lot more.

i just use mylot to be around,i find it a bit better to go around mylot than other social networking sites. looks like i go in to mylot. i simply use it to have fun and not to make huge bucks but once in a while i will see a surprise in increase in my earnings for only posts once (only 1 reply to a discussion). so i go with slogan, fun way to make money....
