Not enough posts on MyLot anymore

United States

I have noticed that people are not posting as much as before . Is that because we do not get paid for it anymore? You can only answer the same question so many times. Any comments?

The money side of things is not enough to worry about for me as I do not seem to be able to make much and I try and put in a bit of work! Most of the discussions I can relate to I have already answered so makes it a bit hard!

I agree. It seems to me that many of the same things are getting dicussed over and over. The problem is that many newer users don't know what topics have been recently discussed and they keep introducing similar topics. It really isn't their fault, it is just the way this system is set up. I am finding less and less to reply to. Maybe it is because I don't have as much time to spend on here.

I am feeling you, friend. The idea of the discussion system in mylot is fine. But it really isn't working as wonderfully after you have been here a while longer. Because many discussions are repetitive. And there's no proper way to make new users alerted that the discussion has been posted before (other than performing manual tag search).

Margie, I'm noticing the same thing. It seems as if so many of my friends have just stopped posting here. It seems as if they would post and say "goodbye" if they were leaving, doesn't it? I know that I haven't been around a lot this week, but I've at least popped in every day. I have to admit that I'm getting bored with a lot of the spam and garbage that seems to be dominating myLot again, but I won't leave just yet because I still like it here. Just keep doing a good job!

I am not posting as much as I was. I run out of topics to start. or if I think of one it seems someone else already started that discussion.

I think some of us are not posting as much because we are running out of good topics and ideas to discuss. There are so many users on here so many of our ideas have been used already and do not want to copy and paste stuff for the heck of it. I try and think of some good things to discuss.

I am inclined to agree with you here. Not much going on lately and I was so looking forward to having mylot time again. It's really rather frustrating. I posted all day just to do some catching up, but when I checked my earnings they were 17 cents. Whoa! That's never happened before. I'll admit that it does take some of the fun out of it. No offense to my friends.

I still am having no problem. New friends sure make it easier. I have some discussions to get posted so keep tuned, I can help a little. I find the way this is set up is giving me new opportunities when I need them. Just takes a bit of time to find them. I can repeat myself if necessary being sure to word it differently even though cut and paste appeals to me. I refrain! I wish you luck in finding the type of discussions you seek.

Sometimes is hard to post about something.. The reasons might be hard discussion, unknowning some sentences, language reason, not involved in specific interest.. etc..

I have noticed this to Margie and it is sad. I don't know why People are bothered about not getting paid for posting. But I just hope it does not go downhill from here, I know there are trouble makers on here but surely People are not going to let them force them out of here. I hope they all come back soon. I really do.

Maybe they got discouraged by the small pay. There are always things to talk about. Every day life is enogh to talk about if you ask me.

To be honest I've had 'problems' finding good topics to post .. the topics I thought were really good had hardly any replies to them .. and the ones I'd thought were a bit on the 'daft' side got literally hundreds of replies .. heheh !! So I kind of came to a grinding halt with what to post ... I dislike the 'dafter' discussions as much as anyone .. but looking through many of the 'hot' topics .. they are the 'easier' ones to answer .. So while it seems we would all prefer to have some 'tough and gritty' discussions to get stuck into in fact we mostly head for the easier ones heheh I suppose time has a lot to do with it .. harder topics take longer to answer .. and time is money !!

Hello margie, I understand what you're saying here. Sometimes, it will took me half an hour before a discussion caught my eyes. I just try to keep scrolling all over. As I'm practically new here, I heard a lot from the oldies that earnings are not as high as before. My earnings is not that much but I'm quite satisfied with it. With regards to posting discussion, I don't post too much topics either. I will wait before some unique ideas will form in my mind before posting it here. All the best.

I think if you go through some of your friends post you won't see them over and over. because everyone post discussions you half to go to another one of there discussions. if topic is hot it is going to stay where it is untill someone picks another discussion.

the only reason I'm not posting alot any more is because I am working and cannot tie up my day on here. I have a lot to do, and since the pay is getting smaller I just post when I can. I do love it here though. I love chatting with you and all me other friends. I don't post a discussion untill I can really think of something. that when I get alot of replys. and I always pick people and mylot for key discussion.

Jaded? Bored? Tired? When you don't get anymore unique topics to respond to, you respond to similar topics initiated by "friends". Just to give support. It gets tiring after a while.. I am already pretty tired... you, hon, must be 20 times more tired than I am. :(

The reason I am not posting as much is because I have been very busy with work lately, but I guess you are right that people donĀ“t posta s much. For me Mylot has never been a money issue though, the money we make here are just peanuts and they will not help me out that much!
