Hi. I have been sick over the last few days. I signed in today and my earnings went down overnight but my number of posts are still the same? I knowthere are alot of topics about loss of earnings but I really am confused on why the earnings went down but not my number of posts made. Can some one tell me why or tell me if you experienced this also? Thanks.

yikes that is not good. Do we get paid for the responses or the post. I of course do not have any earnings but would like to know how this works? Sorry you were sick.

Hi. There are many theories on how we get paid here. I tend to believe we get paid by the replies to others discussions they make. but no one knows for sure on any of mylots ways of figuring earnings.

My lot is the best forum i have ever seen . they are honest and prompt and also evaluate the postings. now what would have happened to you is that they evaluate the postings at intervals and make the adjustments. As some body has told here they paid extra last month. But my worry is whether they would be able to continue the payments like now once their membership goes above a lack or more. But i feel this is the best site. all other site where instant earnings are shown are all closed or become funny looking jackpot forums like DUNO or pay poster. web master forum is the only other i have seen reasonable but still lags behind my-lot. you have here good members and quality postings. I got very useful information here and it was nice to earn that way while widening my horizon of knowledge.

Yes. I agree. I like it here and will just have to get adjusted to the way they do things here.

Thanks. I sure hope I feel better soon also. It is Wednesday now and still coughing. I can deal with that for a while. The other symptoms I had, kept me down.

That's what happened to me. My earning average was down although I posted the same number or more posts. If it is quality discussion then why my star is up from 8 to 9? I posted a lot of long responses, not only 2 lines. If I did then I usually add comments as additional, so overall it wasn't short posting and the comments didn't add to my number. I've heard some people said myLot wasn't really a good site but at the time I was new and didn't believe them, but I guess they are right. I will leave this site at the end of the month and will let my friends know before I go, just to make it fair for them.

Yeah. I have a backup site I use also for earnings. It is a forum also and alot quicker and easier to use and your earnings show up instantly.

I can't blame those people to refer me to other sites, they DO have a point and now I see it. Good for you too.

This has been happening to everyone, I think mylot is having a good clear out at the moment. So until they have done all that, we will find that the earnings are going down, I wouldn't worry to much.

this has been happening to a lot of us, from what i can gather its to do with the quality of answers we are giving. They have now started taking money away for those responses that mylot do not think of as quality. blessed be, keep on posting, blessed be

I had the same thing happen to me. I lost $11.00 and was really upset. Mylot doesn't even tell you why. So, I don't have a clue what is going on anymore on this site. Sorry you lost earnings too. Blessings, M&M

Hi. I seen where you lost money also. I would be upset too. That is something else. Maybe will get a bonus sometime down the road, who knows. Things seem to be getting way slow around mylot for some reason.

Yes. All opinions should be welcome. I'm just wandering if someone is out there making bad reports or ratings on people on purpose? It just seems to weird and odd. One day I got a bonus in earnings and a few days later I get deducted from. Too weird.

I have a question opposite of yours, despite not logging in MyLot for 3 days due to my projects, I have managed to up my earnings by more than 1 dollar. I am trying to clarify what has been happening, my posts were the same, but my earnings increased. It am suspecting if my previous responses are the cause of all this increment. I think that as people rate us, our earnings will fluctuate between up, or down based on the ratings. I hope that is just a myth, because I am worrying if one day, someone were to rate me down because I did not agree, or answer the way they want, my earnings will drop gradually. Morever, I think if we were to offend someone unintentionally, they will try all cause to rate us negatively. That is what I seem to be concern about now. What say you?

Same here. my earnings went up the other day and then yesterday they went down for some reason. I rate people positvely or I don't rate them at all. 99% of my rates are postive and the other ones I just don't rate either way. I'm not sure if we will ever figure this thing out. all we can do is try our best and go on with it. Good luck. I hope people are rating each other like we should. i also hope someone is not out there rating people badly on purpose.

I lost 69 cents too,a day before they pay me.But my post are still the same.I think that i might have respond to some discussion that they deleted.

Yeah. It just looks to me though, that if a post got deleted then our number of posts we made would also go down too. It's confusing LOL.

I have not experienced this on this site. Have you writen to the one running the site? Maybe they gave you too much money in error and fixed it. Then again they could have made a mistake taking the money and they will put it back in a day. Write them and let them know you know. I keep track of all that I do on line. I write down each and every little thing to make sure that I am getting credit for every thing I do.

Hi. Welcome to Mylot. I hope my post didn't scare you. Mylot gave me a bonus once but I was just wandering if I had done something wrong to lose earnings here. They do pay, so don't worry about that much.

Sorry to hear that you were sick. Glad that you are back. Management has been tinkering with the earnings like they tend to do from time to time. Their algorithm thingy that changes often went through and did its thing. So earnings were adjusted. Just the way it works. I keep track of day to day earnings and calculate averages and this is nothing new. I ended up pretty good. Am glad. Am sad for the ones where it went down. The responses must be more like your discussion opener here to keep a consistent higher earnings. Good luck with this and I hope to see more things from you!!

Hi. Thanks for responding to my question or concern. I am still freshly adjusting to mylot and their ways. I did get a bonus once but this time there was a deduction so it kind of threw me for a loop. I hope to get back on track here also and I am glad to be back with you all.

That stinks to be sick and come back to find you've lost some earnings. I wouldn't worry it's just the cleanup of bad posts I think. Mylot has told us our earnings will fluctuate until the time they actually pay us. It's that "secret algorithm" that they use...lol They don't always take money away.. sometimes they add it. I ended up with about 12.00 or so more all of a sudden just before the last payout. Now that was a nice suprise.. hang in there we may get it figured out someday..lol

hey friend, dont worry about it, as you can see there are around 69000 user on mylot, so on every day all those memebrs have someupdation in their earnings, may somewhat less or more, but mylot people have to do this for every user , so you really can imagine how lengthy and tidious work is this, so as it is getting done by some peopel there, so at daily updation there you amy find some changes like less or more in balance, but when mylot will process your final payout, your earning will be finaaly updated again, so be happy, and best luck!!!
