Over 500 points? How long did it take?

I've been here for 4 months and am just hitting the 500 mark. Curious to know if anyone else who's reached this mark found it difficult to get to. I'm a moderator on another website forum and I've been there for 6 months. In that time I've reached more than 1100 posts. That site is a non-paying site. I wonder why it was more difficult to reach 500 here than it was to reach 1000 there. I am the only one on that site to reach the 1000 post count mark since the site started 6 months ago. How hard was it for you to reach 500 when you did and how long did it take? How long has it taken you to get to where you are today?

I don't know why it was hard for you, maybe just not enough time but there's plenty of discussions to respond to daily if you want to get there fast.. It only took me less than 2 weeks to reach 500 points, i slowed down afterward, since I made it to be full member (500 marks, no restrictions on copy/paste and photo uploads) and reaching payout level for the first month.

I already reached my first payout in January. I was sitting somewhere in the 300 point range when I got my first payout. I just haven't been too active with the site, that is until this morning. I guess today I have too much time on my hands. :)

10$ to 300 points is a correct avarage you have maintained. This shows your quality work in mylot. Keep it up and enjoy.

Thanks. I can't wait to see what my stats will look like when I get credited for today. My highest daily pay was $1.09. Given the fact that I'm so active today, it should be much higher than that. I'm hoping to reach another payout by the end of this month, and judging by today it won't be difficult. It's only a matter of figuring out how much my payout will be. If you're dilligent in your posting, you can probably make a payout every month. Who knows. :)

My avarage speed is close to 17 points a day. I think this strictly depends upon the the time one can spend in the site as well as the type of quality the member writes in the discussions. For example a quality writing and detailed responses 15 to 20 can be written in 2 to 3 hours a day. As such there is no importance to the ratings in mylot but the authortative & informative discussions and responses are expected and is necessary to earn better I think. The points/rating increases by one even if you write 2-3 garbage lines and is not cared by mylot. In other similar sites you get paid or incremented in rhe points irrespective to the number of words you write in response but in mylot you don't get any point for short replies and as per my observation you get a point only when you write more than 40 words. You can try to verify yourself. But all this consideration to points/rating is not important in mylot so feel free to write long and detailed responses or even the discussions. Wish you a great pleasure in mylot. All the best from oarnamav.

Thanks for the reply. I agree that it does depend on how much time you can spend on the site in one day. Given the fact that it's my night off of work, I've been quite busy here. I set a record for myself this morning. I started just before midnight last night at 454 points and now am over 500. That's 50+ postings in 5 hours. And the majority of those replies were of substance, long like this one, so I know they were quality replies. Now that I'm over 500 I can finally take advantage of the copy/paste feature and uploading of photos. I'm greatful for the photos since there are many that I would like to share.

Thanks for reading me. This copy paste tool is sweet but poisonous so do not use it with any hurry while copying. One of friend was banned because of pasting a copy writed material immediatly. Please double verify the copywrited articals or images before you copy & paste them in mylot. I think few senior members in mylot are more than any modrators or cops. Let not this happen even with ignorence or hurry I mean. I understand that you have worked as a moderator & you know what actions are taken. Just a friendly advise and nothing beyond. Wish you all the best in future.

I've done a lot of copy/paste work on other sites and I always credit the author if I know who it is. If I don't know, then I always state that the author is unknown. I never knowingly plagarize anything. I know it can get you into a lot of trouble and it's definately not worth the trouble. This is a good warning though, for those who don't understand the concept of plagarism.
