Starting a discussion and discussion responded

Do you earn when you started a discussion even it wasn't responded by the members of mylot? How about if your discussion responded like for instance, 10 response, are you earned $.10?

You do not start a discussion here. You post a topic for discussion and until you come back and comment to the rsponses it is only a question with some answers. Why should you earn for the responses that others make an effort to post? Is there any job anywhere that pays someone for what other people do? If you type you will earn. If others type, then they earn, not you.

I think starting a discussion and posting a topic for a discussion is the same. It is like you cannot answer a question if without a question. Posting a topic in a discussion is the origin of all discussion. I agree to owlwings you earn from your topic if you commented on the response they made.

I think you ghave some misunderstandings. You earn for your topic, even if it receives no responses as long as it is within the guidelines, because you posted it. To start a discussion you do not need to post a question but just something that others can discuss and exchange opinions. There are other sites for questions and answers while on myLot we earn for discussing.

1) Your earnings are calculated on the QUALITY of your participation over 24 hours, NOT on any individual post, discussion, respomce, comment &c. (And if a discussion is deleted, then the earnings are recalculated for that day). If one were to count the number of posts made by someone and divide that into the earnings for the day, the result would be different for everyone (but a figure of "1 cent per post" would be less than anyone who cares about the quality of their participation should expect). 2) If I post a response to a discussion of yours, I earn for that - you don't. If you comment on/reply to the responses you get, then that is your participation and you earn for it. Those people who just post "discussions" and don't reply to any of the the responses they get are missing the whole point of the site (and won't earn very much at all)!

Thank you owlwings. Nice explanation. Let say you just want to spending your time with your friends here. You stayed all day long with mylot doing some private messaging with your friends you earn for that?

No. We do not earn for sending and/or receiving private Messages. We earn for our own overall quality participation in the discussions.

I do not know about this that if we get 10 respons for our post we will be paid certain amount like what you have mentioned. But I knew whether we comment on the reponses of the members who has commented on our post and when we comment on other members post we get paid and more when our comment is quality comment

Please read the previous responses to understand that we do NOT earn anything at all for the responses that our topics receive. We only earn for what we do, not for what others do.

hi srioshan no he will not get paid f or our responses as we typed them so we earned. He has to type comments back to earn and earn well on his discussions. You have it right that we must comment back on the responses we get and it really does pay well too.Again WE EARN NOTHING ON THE RESPONSES WE GET AS WE DID NOT TYPE THEM OUR FELLOW MYLOTTERS DID AND THEY WILL GET THE EARNINGS.

Thanks for this question. I am new as well and I learned alot from the answers of others answering your question. Thanks for all who answered and took the time to explain. I seem to be earning from responding to a discussion. I haven't started that many discussions. But, I am still earning.

I just join here in myLot for I have the passion in writing. I don't have any idea how could I earn in posting articles here, or commenting back to the articles I come across. As a newbie or new comer here, I need to explore more and to be aware of the mechanics of earning something here. By the way, is there anybody who has already earned a bucks here? Please share your experiences here. Thanks.

I could be wrong but even if you get no responses you get credit for the discussion. I do know that you don't get .10 for 10 responses or even discussions. Admin keeps all that a secret.

Forever sir I think no if we start the discussion and nobody respond on it and we cant comment then no earning. But if you are saying I will try one day only I will start some discussions and not respond and comment then check my earning is increase or not. I have doubt.

you earn for being active and participating in discussions. You only earn for what you type, not what others type. Even if you don't get responses to your discussion, you still earn for starting it, provided it is has substance and of a good quality. I think a lot of people have the idea that they will earn from other people and that just isn't true. Each user only gets paid, for what they themselves type. It has always been that way, and still is, and will continue to be that way. Just continue to be active and participate, and you will earn. Take care, and have a great day.

In my observation about participation, Sometimes Admin add cents in other dates. I did 10 responses in 1 day but I earn lower than 10 cents. Well, I will have to figure out this again.

hi art pinoyguide no no whoever told you that you earn for the responses we typed on your discussion is wrong, We did the work we get the pay and you get zip until you type ten responses., here you type you earn, and I type a response to your discussion I earn. remember that.here we who type earn, if you type you earn but nobody here is paid for someones elses work ever. And where did you get the idea of rates? mylot d oes not have rates as it pays strictly for quality and not quantity. so be active and do guality work and you will earn nicely. You only earn a few cents if you get no responses on your discussion.So participate by responding to others discussions and when making a discussion and getting responses you must type comments back to get well paid. I repeat YOU DO NOT GET PAID FOR OUR RESPONSES. WE DID THE WORK AND WE GET THE P AY. YOU DO THE WORK YOU GET THE PAY.

No,you can't earn for other's responses.You will earn for what you will do.Suppose you start a discussion and it attracts ten responses,then you comment back to all your responses,then you will earn for that.Earning depends upon what you write in mylot.
