On the record- myLot paid these people

Australia
February 17, 2007 9:43pm CST
I've developed a basic principle for paying sites. If I don't get paid when I'm supposed to get paid, I'm outa there. I'm too busy to become a charity. Given the amount of negative sentiment expressed by some about myLot ratings, earnings and payments, anyone want to just post and simply say they got paid, and provide an online help line to these people? No need to give information you don't want to give, but just to make the point.

I have been paid and I was very happy with what I had made my first three weeks here... don't worry about the stars ... they are just a nusiance as far as I am concerned ...everyone keeps getting all caught up in that ... mylot pays and they actually paid us early this time ...just continue to respond to the discussions with good aswers and you too will make money ... if you are over 500 points you can upload photos to help make a few more cents aday ..it all fun and they are paying us ...

It is fun, and when you learn to find your way around a bit, it gets better. I must say I miss some of the people who were here when I first joined, but the good discussions are always there somewhere.

My friend posted 19 times yesterday and rated some posts and she is a 8 rating and she made .43 cents I posted 25 times yesterday and rated some posts and I am a 9 rating and I made .90 cents. She was arguing with me saying that you get a higher percentage if your rating is say a 9 instead of a 8. I thought she was wrong but now after seeing the numbers I tend to think she is right. What do you think?

I have been paid promptly by mylot every month and every time my earnings have also gone up. I joined mylot on Nov 5th and I was vary like you and didn't spend much effort here, I got 22.64$ by end of November, On 10th I noticed my earning is reading 23.64$ I was surpriswed and was suspecting if it will go down again and suddenly on 15th I checked and ther it was I had money in my paypal account, Yipee. AGain my jan earnings were 27. 82$ and again by jan 10th they went up to 29.13$ and I got paid, this time mylot brloke all records, I had just 22.84$ in my account and by the 8th Feb it jumped to 30.12$ it was a surprise and I really thought it was a mistake and it would go down again but it stayed that way. How I do it every time, I really do not know but I think they do pay ypu really well. You can go to my blog from my profie the name is earn fun and check it out. I have no clue how people post earnng proofs, If you tell me I will post that too. But I love this forum, its paying me well and very regularly.

P.S. FOr every one who keeps wondering about mylot ratings . here is the answer to what I asked them day before: Dear mylot staff I would like to know how do we earn our ratings here. Is it by answering more discussionms or is it by answering more quality responses or is it a combination of both. Mine is staying 86/100 for past two months now, I would like to increase it by working harder, can you help me out and so many others by issuing an alert perhaps. please guide Thankyou so much mansha respond to this message 1. myLot_ContactUs (0) 1 day ago The more detailed your discussions and responses are the better quality rating you will receive along with the number of discussions/responses you have. Keep up the good work and thank you for being such a valued member of myLot. Thanks, myLot

Thank you very much Mansha. Methinks this thread doth maketh a point or so, doth it not? The comment from myLot was very useful, and pretty consistent, too. How long have we all been saying/wishing that, at some point or other? There must be hundreds, or thousands, of posts, saying that, in the last month or so. There it is, in print, who's guessing?

Yeah, actually I've been watching people's comments on when they get paid. Thinking about it, it seems they go through the members systematically. Given that there are now over 70 thousand people on the books, some not current, and at least two different payment methods, I think we can cut them a little slack if it takes a little extra time. It'd be some spreadsheet.

I received my payment a week or so ago. I'm happy with my dealings here - I didn't join expecting to make a fortune, and the things I've learnt etc are just as good as any money I make. The bottom line is that you will get paid on quality rather than quantity - it doesn't matter how many discussions you start or how many responses you give if they don't add anything to the site.

Sorry I don't totally understand what you're asking - but yes I have received a payment and I'm on track to receive again at the end of this month. As for the quality - not only does mylot do what ever it is they do to keep track of things, other members can also rate your answers - so if you give off topic or pointless responses etc others may negative rate you which may decrease your earnings. So you're better off posting 1 good answer than what you are 10 spam or off topic etc answers. Hope that answered it for you :-)

i am a member for 6 months here. i even got a funny comment once saying that i might be one of the moderators here just going around. i just laughed. ofcourse not. well, i got paid always and on time as promised by mylot. and i am satisfied being here. i don't even care about the calculations on how they do it with our earnings. i just love the site and i love the discussions here. the earnings? serves as a great bonus for me! just like you, if the forum won't pay me, i'll get out of it, too. even when with mylot, i tried several discussion sites and stayed there for a day. funny but i do get the minimum payment there in a day. but never get paid even if they promise me many times. up to the time i no longer care and i no longer expect payments from them. and i just love mylot had always been here and always been paying.

your principle is correct. Anyway I am very satisfied with myLot because I already have been paid two times and in march I will be the third time! myLot ratings seems to be ok for me. Earnings are not so high but they are real...many people has been paid like me! I have done in the past a discussion with my payment proof! They are paying for sure! So don't be disappointed about mylot and keep working!

I don't really know how mylot computes earnings but I've observed that my earnings are directly proportional to the effort I put in in terms of posting quality discussions. My first payout was $50 since there were many days when my daily earning exceeds $2. Now that I'm busy with some other things, I couldn't devote the same amount of time and earn less than a dollar but it's fair enough. I have complete confidence that mylot knows what they are doing and people deserve what they get.

Yes, I know what you mean about people refering people to a Business that they are doing, without proof of payment. Or sites choosing to close before you really getting a chance to get paid from them, and thinking they are Scams. I have been one of them who has lost out with a lot of things I have chosen to try, both Paid and Free, but there are also those that I have made $$ with as well. But one thing I can say, is myLot is a Great site, and continues to pay me month after month after month, and I have been enjoying all of my time here. I hope you choose to stick around a while and find out for yourself just how great of a site this is.

I must have been a bit luckier than I thought. I saw a few sites, didn't like them, and now find out that they were gyps to start with. So far Helium and myLot are the only two I've picked. Be interesting to see how the pay for posting scene develops.

I'm like that too Wanderlaugh and when myLot paid me I was extremely happy. That was my first online income ever! In fact the first month I joines,I didn't work too hard here because I wasn't sure if the efforts were worth it. But once I got paid, I was motivated. I've been paid twice and am glad myLot isn't one of those scamming sites!

I can see a situation where myLot just beats its competitors because it pays. A few sites have fallen to pieces lately, and payout seems to be the main reason. Either they didn't make the revenue, or they didn't calculate the payouts properly, and lost money. I don't think you can survive on the net if the site gets a bad reputation.
18 Feb 07
I hope this doesn't count mylot as i would hate to see you just disapear buddy. I personally think people shouldn't join sites without proof of payment as alot of people claim they have without this. I also avoid sites which pay because i think sooner or later people will forget about the ones which can't but offer a great deal for nothing. Mylots the only site i belong to which pay for responses, not counting a forum i know pays but i use the points other things such as professional graphic designs. Kudos! ~Joey

In my case, so far I've only gotten paid from one site, but that's cause I only got the minimum one one site so far. The funny story about that was it was to refer people to dating sites and I had one link on a website of mine. I got the check and couldn't figure out where it came from it was 119USD I think so I'm thinking what could this be, says check, but why would I be receiving a check, I haven't done anything for it. I later found that it was due to some people going into the link on my site, however when I tried to refer people all I got was 3 miserable cents. But I don't mind the 119 that ended up eighty something € after bank bureaucracies came at a real good time, I was really in need. That's just one of those times you feel someone is looking out for you! most the sites I am currently signed up to though that I work hard in I've researched to see if they were legit, so I'm just waiting for my minimum payout!

I have been paid twice by myLot. This is the first site I joined that actually paid me. I have been a member here since October, but I only started posting mid December. I am not a very active member here. There are days that I do not post due to a busy schedule. But some of my referrals help me earn. And believe me, even though you would not really earn high here, it is a very nice feeling when you finally exchange your myLot earnings for cash. :) So for the new members, just be patient. Start meaningful discussions, post quality comments, and get referrals who will hopefully be active here. You will soon get paid. Good luck! :)

I have a lot of negative feelings about the star ratings system which was instituted by MyLot about 2 months ago because it is a very unfair system; the ignorance of a few people can bring down the ratings of people who deserve better in a matter of a day. Other than that, I cannot say anything negative about the site. The administrators are pretty much on top of deleting inappropriate and useless discussions, and they do pay. I have been paid what I had earned twice already without any problems. In fact, both times we were actually paid early!

I have been paid here. Last month was my first month of being able to reach a pay out on here and when it came I was very happy. I have tried so many other sites and have been burned that now when I get paid even if it is a little amount it is nice. I wish that I could help with other sites but so far this is the only one other than my survey sites.

I'm new here so I haven't really gotten paid yet. But based on the reviews on my lot and other members comments that I have read so far, I believe that you can pretty much rely that mylot pays its member...

I'm very happy here at mylot. I started here back in December and I've been paid twice. Both times my amount went up prior to payout so that my payment was even more then I was expecting. I was very happy to see that. I agree with you if I check something out and I don't get paid I don't stay there. I'm not about to make them money if they aren't going to pay me. I've had enough of those. Now I do recommend some sites but until I receive that cash in hand, no I don't. I didn't recommend mylot to anyone until I received payment either. It's bad enough if I get scammed let alone having my friends be as well. Mylot though is not one of those scam sites. They do what they say they will do. It is dependent on you to post quality discussions and posts. The more active you are the more you'll earn but it still has to have good quality. This is one that has really been a jewel to find.
