This discussion is 'a contribution that is eligible for earnings'

Eligible. Nowhere here does it say I will earn for making this discussion. It merely says I am eligible...just like if I bought a lottery ticket, I would be eligible to win. Buying the ticket is no guarantee of winning. Writing this discussion is no guarantee of earning. It simply means it is possible I will earn from posting it. But to earn, it 'depends on how interesting and valuable the myLot community considers it. If no one reads what you wrote, interacts with it, or otherwise considers it interesting, then you likely won't earn anything.' These are the conditions upon which I might earn for posting it. There is no guarantee that you will earn for anything you do here. I honestly don't understand how so many users read the FAQ page and assume they are going to automatically earn for posting a discussion, response, or comment. I am a bachelor. (Or a word that sounds close to that, according to some people ) I am eligible to get married. That doesn't mean I am going to get married. I guess I could always put a / at the end of this discussion...but then again, even though people couldn't 'like' it or respond to it, they could still read it...which is one of the aforementioned conditions to earn for it. Dang it...I'll just have to settle for being eligible to earn, I guess...

Even worse is when people start trying to state 'you earn 'x' amount for each post'. The actual earning algorithm is a strictly-kept secret, the formula of which is kept in a tightly sealed vault that not even @GoAskAlice has the combination to.

@JolietJake interesting. On Bubblews one earned for likes and comments received. When I first joined there, you also earned for views. The numbers of views, likes, and comments showed up for every post for all to see, so one could know exactly what the response to each post earned them. But a post with zero attention would earn zero. Every other site I have peeked into, seemed the same. One has to interact around the site to get themselves seen so people will respond to what they have posted.

I almost 'hate' it when people say they "earn" money here ... just that word, it makes you think you "deserve" something, that the money becomes "yours," that 'the little earned-credits counter in the top corner' is some kind of "contract with myLot"---so much so that I could take a snapshot of my screen, take it down to myLot-headquarters, kick the door down & DEMAND my 0.0011 cents! It's not. That credits-count up there is more like 'a letter to Santa Claus': "Dear Santa, I been this good. Thank you " Every so often, an accountant at headquarters tells Santa how good we've been, and Santa reaches into his 'cyber-sack' (don't Bing that!) and distributes the milli-cents into our PayPal accounts. Not because the benevolent webmaster swore it unto us with an oath, but by their amazing grace

Being eligible is not a guarantee that is like buying a raffle ticket that says you are eligible to win the prize but just because you brought the ticket does not mean you will win the prize you have a chance of winning but that does not mean you will win In here you are eligible to earn money but if you type things that people could careless about then you will not make anything at all the choice is really up to us whether we earn here or not it is not my lots fault if you are boring and uninteresting you will not make any money the buck stops with you not my lots.

Your opinion is true, what you have right in entering a community? I try to give advice hopefully acceptable. So, if we accept the invitation of the celebration, and willing to come, once you enter the room, you realize that the room is not much you know. If you stay silent, then you can not make new friends, and enjoy the celebration, one way to enjoy it is to open up and mingle, create if we are good friends in the conversation, and build fun tip tips. Once you are accepted, I am sure you will really enjoy the celebration. Well, so also in this forum, you should try to introduce yourself, try to add friends, try to invite discussion, if your follower a lot, then once you open the discussion, will get a lot of responses, if your follower reaches 500, all so easy, Get it. If now still a little, enjoy the process, in the process there are likes and grief. When you've positioned the top, even looks monotonous, and you end up saturated and this natural process occurs ... regeneration, if this process can not be resisted like the aging process in humans. Hopefully my views are acceptable. Always working and struggling to fill this life to be beautiful.
