When some of the users of mylot blamed mylot for reducing their earnings i didn't believe them. But today i am shocked to see that mylot has reduced my earnings from 0.79 cents to 0.67 cents. I joined mylot on 4th of this month and they had credited 12 cents to my account on monday. But now when i checked my earning statistics i was shocked to see that my sundays earnings which was 12 cents is reduced to 7 cents and on other days too they have reduced a few cents. This is indeed discouraging don't you feel? What could be the reason? Can anyone explain..

This happened to me too. My earnings dropped down again. From $12 and something cents. Now its back $11.32. That the hell is happening. Twice in a week??? If myLot doesn't want to pay us then by all means... All my efforts have gone down to waste!!! To think I am posting more than 5o discussions daily for the past 3 days. Im only getting less than a dollar for that. But why the hell are they doing this. I mean... I stick to the topics posted by people with high reputation here. The topics that I think aren't just duplicates... I've emailed myLot, twice and I haven't received any replies. Not a single word. I mean before when I lost some money from my account I remember my responses going down. I mean the number of responses I've made. This happened twice yet this time, the number of response I've made didn't go down. That the heck is happening? I could understand if their cleaning up the discussions. But the thing is, I've ask them for some explanations as to why this is happening and yet they don't reply to my inquiries. And twice for this month? Come on. I've lost more than a dollar last time. And about 70 cents this time. I mean its not like I didn't put any effort in earning those. It is indeed frustrating.

It seems that the number of your posts is only 74 and it may be fewer 2 days back. Open your earnings (on top) and check if that 67 cents were for your earnings 2 days back when you have not yet posted 74 posts. If so, you're still fortunate because you earned at least a cent for a post. In my case, I have earned less than 4 cents for 21 posts and there was even a time when I earned 0 for a day when I have posted many. I am not fond of making jokes, etc. so I have not posted foolishly and of course I also don't respond to foolish discussions. I just received my second payment although it's really a very small amount due to negative ratings I received and my stars keep on going down. Keep on posting and enjoy posting whatever that makes you happy and later on you will find out that you're earning even if so little an amount. May God bless you.

I agree that in the last two days i haven't posted more than 5 discussions but what surprises me is that as i said my earnings for 4th feb was 12 cents and now it is 7 cents. What explaination u can give for this?

The following could be reasons: 1. If you are absent continuously for several days. 2. It oculd be due to some discussion topic of yours get deleted - reason could be it is against the policy of mylot. 3. It could be someone's topic deleted wherein your response was in it. 4. It is because if you have used capital letters to type the discussion topic. 5. It is because you might have used graphic design in the discussion topic. There are plenty of such reasons as givenin the mylot guidelines.
