I realized all of a sudden 2 cents missing from my balance that was showing here until yesterday, now my balance is 2 cents less, what could be the possible reason, I have no clue, communication, but balance been reduced by 2 cents. It may not be a huge amount, or would make a huge difference to my livelihood, but wonder, if this is common

First, LOOK at the bottom of this page: It says: "All amounts are estimates and are subject to change until final payments are made." Next, look at the FAQs here: This gives several reasons why your earnings may fluctuate. Please note that earnings CAN increase by a few cents as well as decrease when the adjustments are made! To AVOID losing earnings, make sure that you KNOW the Guidelines and that you keep away from responding to discussions which are certain to be deleted and, of course, DON'T start such discussions yourself!

It happened to me also before. Just check your profile and if you find any discussion or the ones you replied to are missing, if yes then it may have violated the TOS( Terms of Service ) as the other user also mentioned. So, eventually the money earned by that particular discussions will also be deducted. Mylot also sends notifications via email where they will explain to you which particular discussions violated the guidelines and why they are being removed. So, don't worry, just go through the FAQs and respond to those topics which doesn't violate the guidelines of this site and also create quality topics and discussions so that others might get helped. Happy Mylotting.

Yes it is a common thing here on mylot. See if you reply to a discussion and at some point in time mylot feels that the discussion has violated the TOS, then the discussion gets deleted and all who have replied loose the money they earned for that discussion. OR if you replied to a discussion and your reply has violated the tos then your reply will be deleted and you will not earn for that reply. So in the future be careful to the discussions that you reply to and most of all read the welcome letter you got when joining mylot so that you have a better idea of what discussions not to reply to.
