All day long people have been asking how to make more money or why do they only get this much or whatever. How many of you are here for fun ? I am ! I dont care about the money, you arent going to get rich. Are there realy people here just to try to make easy money. I dont mean to be negative but that is just about all I ahve seen in this category today. Why are you here ? Do you see mylot for what it is, an oportunity to make friends and learn valuable things or do you see it as a way to waiste time and make money ? Someone please tell me.

You are 100% correct. Everybody that's here to make easy money, can better go out and start digging in his garden searching for a treasure. The chance for earning something here is much less than the chance off finding a something in your backyard. Anyway, I like this site and hope that most of us are here for fun instead to become the second Rockefeller.

i think it is all of the above. i don't rant and rave about how much mylot gives. because i earn far better with my regular job. it is like an incentive mylot gives to its member. like giving them extra fuel to make them run and at the same time, we build friendship and good relationship with anyone we find here... think about this too... if mylot won't pay its members. do you think there would be a lot of people wasting there time writing anything?

I would definately stay if they quit paying, I think the people that are here to learn and comunicate would and the ones who think they are going to get rich would go.

I'll second that motion. I know quite a few, including myself, who would continue. I don't consider what I write a waste of time, nor do I find it a waste of time to read the comments (rating those that deserve to be), together with ALL the responses and followups on my own discussions. I have so much fun with others' discussions that lately I have had little time to post my own.

That is so true. To many people think money is everything. Money is nothing without family,friends, and you health.

Ammen. My family is everything to me I want to learn how to be a better parent by people who are there and have been there not by someone that is just trying to get 50 posts in.

Im here for the fun!! Im definetely not here for the money... the money is just an added bonus at the end of the day you cannot make a living off this unless you are a robot and can constantly type replies 24/7 because you would need a lot of posting to make money here... I love meeting new people especially from other countries i love finding out about other countries what they are like etc and mylot is a world wide community i love it!! i also like to read discussions about things i have no idea about like PHP site i knew nothing about them but i did once manage to find a discussion about them and found it interesting... I honestly am here to meet new people and i think if people are here for the money i hope they have a lot of spare time because as i said before it will take a long time to get your money up here... i have been here a month and although not very active half way through the month i didnt even make 10$ so this is not a site made for earning... i get fed up with some of the discussions like can i make 2$ a day.... people are so greedy... why not accept what you get paid and not worry whether you earn 2$ or 2cents? hope this answers your questions

Thats what i meant... at the end of the day alot of people are only here for the money so they should just go with the flow... then they wouldnt notice they had made 10$ just from enjoying themselves!! :D

I'm definately not here for the money - it certainly doesn't pay me enough!! I think making friends and reading some of the great discussions are more valuable for me! Whenever I'm bored, can't sleep or need a friend to talk to then I turn to mylot most of the time!

I think money is another reason for create account here. If myLot not share money anymore, I believe that many user will not stay any longer. Making postings is very interesting, and get few dollars make user more happy. Is that right, my friend?

I see you are new here. Welcome my friend. We are always happy to see newcomers. You will learn as you go along but don't be afraid to jump in with both feet when you have something to say. My only advice to you is to make sure that when you post a discussion that you comment and rate all the responses. This will help in your earnings as it shows that you are interested in the responses and the time taken by the responders. Good Luck.!

I've seen a lot of these today also. I agree though, it's more about learning from people. The discussions are really active, I like that :o) To get rich, I'm getting my degree in graphic design!

Now that you are here, is it enough money to make you greedy so that you only wory about the numbers or will you continue to make quality conversation and be respectfull of others doing the same ?

well... i`m here for the money and for the fun... i learn many things here, it's a nice place to be... many discussions about everything, all people share their knowledge here, and yes, mylot is a opportunity to make friends .. i sometimes feel like i`m wasting time and sometimes i feel like i`m having fun, answering to great questions , commenting to people`s answers , it's not a bad thing that we get paid ,i think that receiving money make`s us more active here...

Hear, hear!!! I am on here to meet people and avoid the teens that crowd Yahooanswers with their puberty questions. Here are mostly ADULTS (I think) and I have had a great time corresponding with everyone. SO I make a buck or 2 while I'm doing it? This site isnt going to get you rich, so relax and enjoy the plesant company!

When I first joined my thinking was I could get an extra $100 a month, within two days of being on the boards I realized that this was not going to happen. Now I find myself really taking my time looking and reading discussions. I usually only reply to the ones that I feel I actually have something to say. I also enjoy the wealth of knowledge that can be gained here. I live in a small rural community I have never really talked with people from other countries, so I find it very interesting that this board is so diverse.

I think people have that pipe dream of getting rich easy. HA! Jokes on you people. I'm here to see if I can actually help someone needing help, to meet up with someone who might share the same interests, and people who like to share info. I just wish all the questions were real. Sometimes I can't believe the type of advice people really ask for. I'm hoping people are actually smarter than they appear to be sometimes. lol.

LOL, you put it so well. I am wondring why nobody has answerd this that is looking for the $$$. So far all I ahve gotten is the people like us that just want to enjoy the site. Yet all anyone (else) talks about is a the money and they are the ones that get all the responses encouraging them, as well as making them more money. When I have something real to talk about I am lucky to get 5 responses over 5 days but the ones wanting to know about money get 50 in a day. URGGGGGG.
