The old myLot is very different from the new one...

I'm curious what is the look of myLot before. I did a quick google image search and I found this image (see attached photo). I was bit surprised that myLot has search bar before. By using the search bar, you can earn some cents through your searches (just like Swagbucks, if you're familiar with it). Then there is this task which I think is another source also of earnings in the old myLot. Interests and fun stuff may have the same function as Explore's. To those who are member of myLot for at least 2 years, can you share some experiences from old myLot?

The old myLot had the best forum interface that I ever seen. You could personalize many things, including the pictures for the categories, and create your own categories. Compared to it, this interface is a toy.

@trivia79 To be completely honest, there were glitches and it was often down. This one is certainly easier to maintain with less people, but I still regret the previous one.

You got paid for every one of your posts whether you began a discussion, commented on a discussion or responded. You did not get paid very much but you got something. Payment was not dependent on how many personas interacted with your discussion. I have been told by some former members of the old MyLot that they are making more money on the new MyLot.

great to know that! myLot now is really more of a forum rather than money-earning site.

i liked that part, too, about not needing to start many discussions yet still earn, but i'm also aware that there are members earning more in this version.

I was a member when they had the old mylot and I did like it, actually much better than this one. I was used to that one, and when I came back, I had to get used to the way it is now. At the old mylot, we got paid for everything we did, and not what others did. The only thing of it was, is when I wasn't here I didnt make anything, where now, I do if I have interacted, then I will earn, when I am gone. That part is nice, and I am getting used to the way mylot is now.

i think that's the cool stuffs here. When others interact with your post and comments, you'll still earn a few cents even if you're away.

@trivia79 That is what is to unique now, that i can miss a day, and still earn, albeit, not all that much, but i earn none the less, as long as i interacted. I hope that more start interacting, that haven't been doing all that much, as it will help the earnings go faster and quicker.

'Interests' was categories of discussions, nothing else. 'Fun stuff' was games and puzzles, but myLot didn't pay for them, payment (if you got it) came from the sites that sponsored them.

@else34 when you say you used to earn more, is it through participating in the discussions only? did you cash out every month in the old mylot?

The old myLot had many features that have vanished now. Hopefully some of them will be reinstated when the upgrade is completed. I earned a good bit through tasks.

@trivia79 There were users who wanted articles to be writtien for them. They would suggest a topic with number of words required. Those who wrote for them - first come first served - got paid sometimes as much as 4 dollars an article. Sharon Bucks was the main task giver there.

I was a member in mylot 1 year ago when this site stopped paying and yes, as I've seen on your uploaded photo; it was its interface. It happened when I was in a quest for a platform that pays our written post. Unfortunately, I was told that this site stopped paying. Now it's back on track which is a very great news to everyone who endured the ill-treatment of bubblews.

I was able to make a hundred dollar in one day because of the tasks. Sadly they were gone. I know we have the offers but what I can earn from offers is nothing compared to what I can earn from the old school tasks.

I was encouraged by a lady @SIMPLYD to join this site a long time ago; I was a dedicated "bubbler" that I did not heed to her advice. Only when the bubbling site sunk into the deepest ocean, did I make my account here. I have really no idea how this site worked. It is however a good site and we can go there and turn around everywhere here; the site is easy to be navigated to.
