My Lot Earnings

March 19, 2007 8:07am CST
How come I haven't got any earnings for Saturday? Is it because I didn't earn anything? I thought they usually put a 0 if you didn't. Also my earning for yesterday are a lot lower than I expected. I wrote 50 discussions this morning and about 20 last night and have only been paid 22c. Surely that isn't right.

Due to the different time zones it's possible that your account will be credited fo rthe discussions you responded to as th next days earnings.I think it happened to me once. I knew about it because I have uploaded very few pictures and the credit of the picture was given to my account the next day.So, that could be a possible explanation that the expected earning and actual earnings show disparity.

I noticed that I actually earned something for the past 2 days when I was able for reply about 5 or less discussions and didnt post any discussions because our computer at home cant connect to internet but I earned 20C. Between your discussions and mine and our earnings, the way mylot pay for for discussions now really boggles my mind.

Mylot often makes adgustments so it may be they may adgust your earnings later. IT will all probably work out on its own. I sometimes get paid far less and then another day I get pleasantly surprised with a bit more. I have so much on my plate that I wish I could give more to Mylot but I am falling behind with somany other things my time here is going to be limited for a while. Good luck.

You might be already aware but it slipped your mind. You don't get paid for discussions unless someone (I don't know how many) responds. Even that, I think responses pay better than discussions. If you count the number of responses you make and multiply by 1-2 cents, that would be a fair estimate. But yes, these few days, I notice that we were paid less too.

I'm not really sure about your earnings for yesterday. However i do know that if you aren't on mylot for a day, and you didn't earn anything then instead of putting a 0 they put nothing there.

I guess your other posts will be updated for the next day. There are times when you made too many topics and their updates will be made for the next days to come. Just wait and you'll see what I mean. if you made 50 discussions that will be credited if many people have already made their responses. At least this is how I observed it from the months I stayed here in Mylot.

as per experience, when i don't do anything for a day or two, i usually don't get anything on the record, no date, no zero earning thing, no nothing. it will skip to the next earning day. i am not sure why you haven't earned anything on saturday. about your 22 cent earnings, some of your discussions' earnings might have been carried into the next earning update. i do think that there's such a thing as a cut off time when it comes to updating our earnings. i still haven't figured it out. might be 5, 6 or 7 hours before the earnings are updated is the cut off time. hard to explain. but i am sure, some of your earnings will be carried upon the following update day. take care...

My earnings have been very low lately---about .01 a post. I've noticed that the less I participate, the less I earn per post. I have no one to blame but myself. Could it be that you haven't been as active lately?

I believe you would have to be rather active in all those discussion you posted for there to be more than a few cents being made per each response you are getting. Now if those were responses than I would have to say than there is a need to work on how you are responding to certain posts. Though really I don't see the point in creating so many discussions in one day that you cannot actively take part in them all. And there is really no need to complain about it, since like a poster said before we'll never figure the system out and there have been more members to sign up so now we may have to work even harder to see the earnings build up.

I don't create hundreds of discussions, usually only 2 or 3, but I respond to a lot. The more interesting ones I bookmark and go back later to see how my comment has been recieved by the site owner.

Oh come on people you are never going to figure mylot out so why do even bother with this type of discussion? Its really getting old around here. Your worried about a couple of cents, Please get a life.

When you post over 100 discussions a day its not just a few cents you are losing.......

my earnings are sometiems down and up the next day too, happen every so often, but never that bad. what about your post counts? if they go down too then some of your discussions are deleted. I got 4 responses the last 4 weeks got deleted and that's when my earnings went down

yep. it's true, too. some of the discussions i've responded to got deleted and my earnings did go down. there are even some discussions to which i got the best response mark which got deleted. it was sad to see my earnings down as well.

I've given up on trying to calculate how much I earn. I too have noticed that we get paid more for responses than discussions, which I think is odd. 22c for 50 discussions definitely seems wrong. It wouldn't hurt to contact mylot and ask if that's correct. good luck.

i never really understand how mylot pays us... but i never really bothered to find out as well as i just treat the earning here as a bonus... i concentrate more on the fun, enjoyment and knowledge that i get from this site rather than the money...

check again later, maybe it's just a fault. are you sure you did write quality posts? you need to write high quality long posts and replies if you want money. also give search tags. contact the admins if you have to, there has to be a mistake. 70 points is not worth 22 cents, it has to be worth more than 50 cents.

No they will not put anything there if you did not earn anything, well it all depends on what you did in your responding and your discussions but it should of been more than that.

I think we have all noticed that the earnings have gone down recently. At first I thought it was just because my new job means I am on here a lot less than I used to be, and put it down to that. But even if I am on here a lot at weekends, I don't get half as much money as I used to for the same number of posts, and time spent. I guess it is because so many new membes have joined, so they have to make the money go further!

That's unfair but I don't know that you earn for getting replies. What I know is that we only get cents for replying to posts.
