When Did MyLot Change The Amount of Reward For Postings/Discussions?

MyLot Participation - My June 2008 Participation

There was a time when earning was easier. In a week or two, I am able to reach $10. No it seems to take me 1 to 2 months to reach that goal. It is becoming harder and harder to write original and quality posts too. Does anyone remember the time when the payments for our participation was greater. From the image I uploaded, in 9 days I was able to accumulate more than $6 already. Right now if I doubled the amount of post I amde that time, it would still be less than $5. How much do you get for a complete post? Do you remember when this was changed. I am sure it was when I went on hiatus. Let me know NOTE: This is not a grievance. Just a discussion.

There is NO fixed rate for each post here and there never was in the past either. We earn for our overall quality participation. Possibly in 2008, which is what your image relates to, there were fewer users and therefore the total pot was divided among fewer people. Now there are certainly more active users and therefore the amount that we earn has possibly decreased. Having said that, I am earning more that I was in 2008, probably because my activity has totally changed because, for quite some time, I have understood that we earn for discussing and not just for posting responses or whatever else. MyLot pay for quality and if we are careful then it is absolutely possible to make payment and more every single month. We can also use the search and the tasks toboost our earnings. They were not there in 2008.

If you have had some posts deleted, there will be no earnings for them. If those earnings have already been added to your account, they will later be removed.

back wehen I first learned to do q u ality not q uantity p osts I was also spending from 9 am til 2 am posting and was making 2 dollars a day,.so I did n more stuff and now I have to quit by ten and really I guit at 9pm so I do not spend as much time. b ut with a little shove I can hit a dollar a day most time. IO think the rate may have been a little better back in 2008 but I havent noticed any huge d rops in my earnings,

That could be the best explanation Mysdianait. I do not recall the number of mylotters before. Now it seems there is a lot. I am wondering, does the mylot population at the lower left-and of the mylot window represent the total members or just the online ones.

hi mueliotz you have tol hone in on doing qu ality wor k here not quantity work as my lot has its own secret rates and they rate us according to the quality of our posts each day here.I have had 1.33 one day 89, 90 and 1.22 on another day.Like anyone else my quality will vary due to all sorts of things. mylot has never given us rates.stop trying to amass a lot of posts and slow down and do less but a heck of a lot better quality and participate and you will b e shocked at what you earned.

I haven't noticed a difference in my earnings. Did your star change? That could have something to do with it since it's factored into the earnings thingie.

hi frugalmommy yes our reputation is figured into the algorithm thingie.he he you use thingie too.good deal.yes and my earnings are going up with participation, but I have not seen any changes in my earnings from last year to this year.

muelitz I came to mylot two years ago. The earnings are more or less the same. On a few days I use to get a few cents more than what i expect and on a few days i will get a few cents less than what i expect. of course I was not posting photos more. participate more and earn more.

I wasn't here then so I have no idea. But I read mysd's reply and that is what I think also. If I am here every day in the month which usually... I can be but sometimes not, I can do well enough to stay on ' pace ' through the month. Like so far this month I am on pace barely but if I miss a day or two... I may not make it.

How sweet! It is going to rain all week-end here and my grandson will be with his mom and dad so I can be here. Hopefully you will be too! I should be here next week too, if only in my evenings but for the whole time without interruptions

yes. one should not depend on mylot for living. this can supplement one's income and also keep one busy on net. plus you get a lot of friends like Hatley aunty etc.

Hi Muelitz, MysD. already explained it all. And yeah it is not fixed. I remember the month when there was a double pay because of the error server...and most of us here who were active that time got double payment. I even made a lot but until now, I haven't got the payout because I was busy with personal issues. I am trying to accumulate my earnings now so that I can have my payout again next month but still I am not if I will be busy again on the next coming days. Anyways, just post quality discussions and responses...then you can earn a lot in here. Happy Mylotting!

surfysmurf When was that? Are you referring to quadruple payment allowed for a few days?

If I was not working I would make payout in two weeks like always. but,now I don't care if I make payout all that much because I make money outside the home to hold me over.

Wow...it's good for you that before, it would just take you about two weeks to received payout....I wonder how many hours it would take you to comments or post here in mylot everyday and received payout immediately?

Yes, it is getting difficult to earn in Mylot, more effort need to put in by mylottter to make the same amount now than a year ago, it is taking longer time for me to reach minimum cashout amount now than a year ago with the same number of postings. May be the rule has changed since the inception of Mylot. As Mylot becoming more popular worldwide, it is much difficult to make a cent than before, it is a reality we have to face with and learn to live with it no matter we like it or not.

I really did not noticed it because I've read that there is really no fixed amount for each post. I think it will depend on the quality of your discussions and comments.

The only thing that I noticed in my earnings here in myLot is this: I earn more during the times when I am active, and I earn less during the times I am not active in here. Sounds logical to me.

Just before tornado due to which mylot was down and when mylot would give quadruple pay I would earn a decent but now a days my posts are unable to raise money from mylot.

I check the photo attached and you are doing well. With your number count beside your username, you are doing great with your earnings. Recently I am not earning good due to offline works so my time with mylot become less compared the other days. Just keep mylotting and I am sure you won't noticed the increase in your earning everyday

I have not notice any decrease since I only started using my account since year . What I notice I am not as active here as before , even though I come here every day I sometime just read discussion most time and leave . I want to be active as I was but I am working now and just dont have enough time to spend here to guarantee I make payout every month . Do you think its possible that you are less active here these days ?

It seems that many respected mylotters have responded. I have been here for several years but only now I`m earning more and it seems it is because I comment more than I did before. Try with quality posts, but also to go on with threads worth following. Take care!

The amount earned for participating here in MyLot depends on how much you do here, there isn't a set amount for how much you earn.

Just like what mysdianait stated, mylot rules are just that. The overall activity you made. Because nowadays there are more members than in the time you can earn easily, plus there are too many post made by each members that makes it harder to earn if you just post a little everyday because the revenue is divided by the work done each members made.
