Will You Be Here Next Week

April 30, 2013 3:14pm CST
A very very brief post... Will you be here next week, when the changes take place and they stop paying us? I will still be here. It took me three and a half months to make the payout last time. I am not going to disappear over $3 a month. I will stick around until the Mylot regime annoys me enough.

I've been here four years and I think I've made payout 3 times. So, yeah, the "money" isn't and has never been an issue for me here. A friend of mine brought me here back when McCain and Obama were going at it in 2008, and I kinda just stuck around after enjoying the rants. Money has never been a motivating factor. However, that all said, myLot can afford to not only keep paying but they could actually pay more! With their cheap-azz, never-load baby servers and with their copying and flooding search engines with massive amounts of our content, they should be doing quite well. But if they take the $10.17 I have now, I'm going to sue! That's been building up a penny at a time for almost a year. I have plans for an Arby's roast beef with that.

That is a good point you make... What happens to all the earnings that don't reach the payout figure? Do they take it back? We earned that under previous conditions

Agreed, I wasnt here for the money, and I never made payout since I began, but I was 15 cents off... ticks me off a bit. I think I'm more disappointed by the new format though, trying to copy Facebook and Twitter at the same time.

I still be around, peeking once in a while and see what's next to mylot.

Nope, I will be off mowing someones lawn. I was scammed once by mates gates lies, Not going through that again. So long..............

I suspect that once I stop using this site, I will pretty much stop going online. Every few weeks a site closes down and another earner disappears. If you do leave Mylot, Then I will wish you all the best on your move to the US. Have a good life my friend you deserve it.

I suspect that they, the management, are going to have to work very hard indeed to keep people. Many Asian and Philipinos will go once the lure of filthy lucre is removed. So will many westerners. The issue will be entirely one of ensuring healthy discussion when the incentive is simply the enjoyment of our fellow humans. I already meet many of my myLot friends elsewhere as well as here. If they all leave and nothing stimulating replaces them my own incentive to stay will diminish. However, I came initially for the money and stayed for the banter. One has almost gone, let's hope the other decides to hang around a while longer.

mylot gives me many happy personal memories, including yourself. Going to the local museum to find out about the crashed spitfire one of your relatives flew. These things could only have happened with mylot, no other site i can think off would have revealed the details of where we lived which resulted in these personal discovery's.

ajk111 - that is precisely why I thnk that this change will impact negatively on current members,

The money earning never really mattered here, I came to be part of something. If people start to drift away and the level of interest drops, then that is when I will leave

I plan to stay as long as enough members remain to make it worthwhile and they keep the discussion aspect of the site going.

That is my view as well cupkitties - When it becomes dull, then there is no point

I will stay until it gets dull ladies

It takes me two, sometimes 3 months to reach payout too so money isn't much of an incentive. However, the exchange rate being better us Brits (lately) were getting more to the dollar..and now this. I will stay and put any newbies off that want to join the site..as most of us KNOW what it used to be like and they really, REALLY need to be informed about it.
30 Apr 13
I will hang around for now Janey, until people start to disappear and then I will leave I would imagine.

I think the ones that have been here a long time will say NOW that they're going and never coming back..but I honestly think they WILL BE BACK (like Arnie) in the future. Whether they will be able to use their original 'names' I don't know. Petitions have been mentioned as well, which is interesting. People power and all that. I have visions of Lamby starting one of those up.

I don't think I'd really stay, I couldn't also say that I'd totally go.. Perhaps I would be lingering around because maybe they'd change their minds. But for sure, I wouldn't spend as much time as I do now. It's really sad. But we've got to be practical. Have a great mylot experience ahead!

Why not? I've been hiding here for 5 years...may as well come out and see what is going to happen.

I will be checking back in from time to time. Not sure for how long though.

Thanks for responding Shellyann
30 Apr 13
To be honest I probably won't. I've never actually made cashout here, which means I don't use the site too much. But I would check in from time to time and post in things I found interesting, trying to eventually hit that magic $10. (Which I'm still $6 away from). So, if there's no reward, I've got better ways to use my free time and make a little extra dough.

Fair comment and good luck with your earnings

I see no reason why i should not at least give the new site a chance. Mylot is displaying a very typical human emotion at the moment, i.e damning the new before even seeing it.

I agree completely

i will be here to see how it goes. i don't think i will spend as much time responding to discussions as i do now. i enjoy this site and i enjoy reading the posts. it took me 45 days to earn 12.98 dollars. if mylot not changing, i would have wanted this to reach 100. in fact, i had set my payout to the max becasue i read from the discussions that mylot has never failed to pay so i was confident i would get paid when the time comes.

I will see how it goes, once the boredem sets in - I am off

Yes i will be here,i used to post on Yahoo Answers,Facebook Discussions, Twitter and EspnCricinfo, yes i was active in Mylot but i used to concentrate more on tasks than discussions,in those days there were lot of article writing tasks.However recently i started participating in discussions too as there are nice and friendly people here and the discussions were free from unnecessary provocations and abuses like there are in other discussion forums.With recent developments and people wishing goodbye to each other , there will only be handful of people here.Out of those how many will reply me if i post something is a big question.

I will see how it goes. Who are these faceless halfwits that run this site?

Yeah, I think curiosity will get the best of me and I will be peeking around to see what's going on. I appreciate your perspective; $3.00 a month isn't close to a car or mortgage payment. I'll see what's what and take it from there.
30 Apr 13
I will see how things go.

It depends :) I joined myLot primarily to earn money and I'm very honest with that. But since they will stop the earnings program, then I might look for other ways in order to increase my earnings. I still might go here from time to time however, I won't be spending too much time on the site anymore.

Well for me, my visit next week will be hugely influenced by how this week ends. If I end up fine with payments then I would surely come back but may not do so if it's otherwise.

I don't think so. I won't help those greedy people earn more and more.
