I have been a member here for months and the 1 thing I really notice all the time are these so called tips everyone has to increase earnings. Well my friends its nice you guys have spent so much time on here to figure out what you did but my question is why? This site I find is for more fun then anything yet half the people complain about earnings and the others got tips how to make more. Its painfully clear you can't even make decent money on here every month no matter how long you work it and even if you do is all the hours worth the few extra dollars? Lots of you have good ideas for making money online but why not apply your time and skills to sites that you'll actually make good money from? These are just a few questions Im curious on, but don't get me wrong Im not insulting you's who spend alot of time here Im just wondering why?

i had been here for five months now. and i am not here for the money. i never even tried to figure out how much per discussion is paid or per response if being calculated. i really don't care at all. for as long as i get to have fun here everyday, i meet people, gain new friends, learn something new, then, i'm happy. being paid is just a great reward for us. so, let's stop complaining and start having fun!

Well put and thats my exact point as well. We are here for fun and new information not the earnings. I guess there are only a few of us that believes the samething. Thanks for your response!

I have only been here a month but I enjoy the forum and it's fun. The tips are great but I knew on my first day making 20C that I wasn't gonna make money on this forum. I continue because of the discussion. I think some people believe they are going to get rich and that is were all the complaining is coming in at.

Well, most of us spend time over here because it's fun to. Besides, all you need is a bunch of active referrals and you could be earning yourself a decent allowance.

it is quite true tht u can not make decent money here. But mylot is different frm other sites as while incrasing ur knowledge in diverse filed u r as well paid for that. So there is no harm in exploring the oppurtunities to earn more.

Yeah, there are intangible benefits on top of the tangible ones. I'm sure it's not only the money that drives people here. They learn new things, make good friends and even get to improve their command of English here.

I'm not here for the money. The few cents is a bonus to me! I love forums, and I love hearing people's stories and commenting to them. If I can make a few cents doing so, then that is all the better!!

True, it is not a big money maker and we can't count on it for that. It is fun to see what everyone thinks and a good way for some of us to learn from people in other countries. Also, since it is still pretty new, we do have hopes that the financial thing will improve--if it doesn't I am sure many will fall away in time.

Great question. I joined because I like the idea of being able to chat with new interesting people (ok, most are somewhat interesting.. some are just plain boring, but thats another discussion I guess..). The fact that you can get paid is a nice bonus - even if it is only a small bonus - that I now visit this site every day and not other sites... but I am NOT here to become rich from chatting ;)

Possibly some people that you the intention was people who worked as the operator from the internet cafe, and they finished the time here possibly to get the addition from the earnings and look for many friends, I thought like that as I who worked in one of my internet cafes only gave my time to share the experience and knowledge and moreover I looked for the addition of the earning.

good posting.i used to feel the same.i thought i was here in mylot for money.but slowly now i realise that i am enjoying discussing here more than thinking about how much i am earning here.its really true that what we earn here is very lesss but what knowledge we gain about whats going around us is more.

I'm not on here to make money. My husband knows in order for me to be happy, I need to help people. I've been through so much in my life that now I've been trying to help others. That's the only reason why my husband found this site since I rarely get out of the house. I don't like being away from my children. This is a way maybe I can help people in order to help myself too. I am having fun with this and will continue.

I am not on here that much, and I too am just here for fun. Make a few cents per day , whatever as it's obviously not a full time pay. I think so many discussions on this site are so much fun, and love to post some myself.

Good posting! I also have the same question in my mind. I'm really interested to find something here in the internet, mylot or otherwise, that will provide sufficient income to make it a full time job. I've looked at some sites that were recommended by some users and they were scams. One site gives a start up bonus but the first pay out is on 2009. I'm not sure if there are other legitimate ones, I hope there are. I like mylot even the income is small because I enjoy relating to other people.

to me the money i get out of this is of little moment, i enjoy the discussions and the friendships I have made. I have a paying job, this is simply my pass time

People are here for different reasons.some are for making some meaningful discussions and fun, some others look for meeting some friends and spend some time lively. There is yet another group that is really in need of money whatever little is and they are on the look out for some extra bucks. So all of them are right. But only one point . We need not sacrifice the quality and thrill of good postings for the sake of money. the algoritham is so complex that you can never say how much actually you will make. After all mylot is not to substitute our career.

See my friend, you can post about 10 to 15 responses in one hour. Limit your responses to four to six lines. Work daily for about 3 hours on MyLot. You will certainly earn a minimum of $ 1 a day and hence you can get about $ 30 to 50 in a month depending on the postings you make. Good Wishes. Try this method sincerely.

For some people who are stuck at home and can't do otherwise this is one of the only means of making some income, even if it is minimal. Some are dedicated housewives and they cannot go working out of their homes because of their young kids, others because of their health condition.

I think most of the people here are not here for the money. We are here to talk about our lives and problems and to see if any of our friends need some help sorting out something in our life. The people who are here for the money usually dont stay here long. Once they learn you cant make a living do this thats it for them. I do try to beat my goal everyday but not for the money just to see if I can achieve it.

It depends on the person using myLot. What myLot is all about is different thing. What you do and interested is different. What people dying for money is doing is also different.

I don't know hun I think the discussions are scintilating. Some entertain me, others rile me, others are plain silly. Some have no discussion what so ever and yet they're posts get noticed and people post here. I would be untruthful if I said I was not concerned about the money I am making of course I am but hey its a nice place to chat and with 62 Thousand members I think we have a fair world wide population of views here.
