A bit confused about the earning sistem

i noticed that our rates number increases each time we post a response,but it never increases when somebody responds to our discussion,so my question would be:do we actually earn if people respond to our discussions,or we only earn by the number of responses that we give to other people's topics?..hmm..

The only time you earn is from your referrals (when the create discussions or when they respond to discussions), and when you create discussions or respond to discussions. You do NOT earn when people respond to your discussions! You basically get paid for the work that you do... :)

hmmm then why should we struggle to get more responses to our discussions?i have seen people verry irritated by the fact that some of their discussions have no or few responses..if this doesn't affect our earnings in any way,then we shouldn't care much,should we?

I guess you shouldn't. Not really sure.

From the way I understand it, we get paid for responding to a topic and for starting a topic. So, people responding to your topic get paid for it, but not you.

I don't believe that we will be able to figure out the complex details of the earning scale here, nor does myLot want us to, as they've stated. We only know for a fact, from myLot, that we earn for replying with quality responses and starting quality discussions. Also, by uploading pictures that are relevant to the topic. I was away for almost a week and when I returned, I decided to check my best responses. I had 5 or 6 new ones and my rating went down while my earnings didn't change but by pennies! So I'm thinking maybe we don't earn for best response... or at least not very much ; ) It's nice to comment/reply to your responders to let them know you appreciate their participation or contribution, plus it helps you by bumping your discussion back to the front page!

so it would be better to respond more than to create
