I thought I wouldn't really miss Chatabout all that much because it was taking longer to cash-in the points towards Paypal They first stopped giving the surveys which gave points every time you entered and then the amount of points just got a lot harder to earn.Initially, thirty earned dollars every month made an easy average. Later it became much harder although still could earn a few dollars. But what I liked about the site was that you could earn every time you participated. Each and every time you made a comment on the various categories where there were a variety of topics, plus news items, images, and the viral section, you earned a single point and once every week they had the double points offer. So you could earn quite a few dollars if you caught the daily poll and were able to make enough comments. I just thought that was a good way to earn. Although what I like much better about Mylot is the ability to write actual posts and therefore the possibility of interaction. That it's not just about acquiring points. Many just write posts and forget to interact and comment on the responses however, or it appears that way or more people need/might sign-up for Mylot.

I'm not missing ChatAbout. I was actually considering closing my account anyway. The only part that annoys me is that I could have cashed out two days before they closed but never got around to doing it.

I was ready to leave, then they gave me a free gold membership. With all the sites that have closed quickly with no notice I make sure to cash out as soon as I am able. I am so sorry you lost your money.

@GardenGerty It could have been a lot worse. I noticed that some members used to accumulate their points to cash out bigger amounts, so I'm sure that some of them lost a lot more than $5.

@else34 You're lucky you didn't join because the site closed down with no warning to its members. I had enough money in my account to cash out but hadn't done it yet and now it seems I'll never get that money.

@else34 Nobody knows why it collapsed. The only notification we got was a one line message (quoted in my latest post) but even that was removed after a few hours. All you'll find there now is a blank page.

Do you still do Chatabout? I do not think I have ever heard of it but it doesn't sound as fun as mylot as you said no real interaction.

This is my only "writing" site. I hope the others do come here.

You understand what I was saying here, that I like Mylot but want more to join, so there's more opp to both interact and earn.

I agree - this site is not really about earning, it's more of a social site where we can build up relationships with each other. I was never on Chatabout.

I have heard several users talking about Chatabout, I never joined that site. For what I understand they went offline.

Seems like it was a nice way for you to earn some extra money. I never used that site.
