Do you write down how many discussions you do everday on myLot?? I did for one week to see if I could figure out the payment system, but got confused, misconstrued and completely baffled by in the inconsistencies that I have given it up. But I know a few of you do, and have it a spreadsheet, some along with the actual discussions. So do you post as many as you can or do you record and make it a record??

Hello,texasclasygal,I did not actually write down the number of discussions I started or the responese I made everyday as I could remember them in my mind. I am sure we could not get a conclusion even we tried to analyze our earnings, it is so fluctuating,but i think the variation is due to the delay of members to rate our responses, when the members you reply to have rated you later ,your earnings will be reflected in later days. Good luck

Yes, I figured that must be the case so I have tried not to count any longer since I am pretty much getting the same amount every month, thanks for contribution Easy

Hi, Anna now i didnot know that. Isn't rating the same as answering the post, when i first started mylot said we didnot half to comment on every post? I thought when you rate some one that was the credit? I am confused.

No,I don't write it down.I don't have to because I have been posting and responding very little lately. When I'll have enough time for Mylot,then I'll try to post a couple of discussions and respond to atleast twenty-five posts.Then ofcourse i'd like to keep a track of it.:)

Back then, I count my postings here, because I try to achieve my target posts in responding to other discussions. I usually average 30 discussions responded to, and I think about 3 to 5 started discussions a week. By this, I can maintain and provide quality postings more, and not to make much effect on my performance here. I am not that good in writing long postings and create funny stories, so when I do, I try my best that my own post would be a good one too. I also try to avoid making my own post as a repeatition, because I also want to make sure that I won't have the qualifications for mylot admin to delete it. My own way of helping this community, as I try to make contributive and informative posts only..

I only write down my post number every night when I logg off. I only do it to see if I have lost any points. So far the on;y ones I lost were expected because they were on deleted threads. I tried to keep up with all of to see what paid what but like they all say it is confusing!

I sorta keep track, but it's mostly to give myself a goal to reach before I sign off for the night. I'm kind of curious how many posts I need to earn a dollar or so, but since it always varies, I just don't worry about it too much. I figure that I'll get what I get. It's not worth the hassle. I'm just happy that they're paying me what they pay me.

another new avatar. hehe. i hardly recognized it was you texasclassygal. by the way, nice cat again. hihi. nope. i don't write down how many discussions per day i make up in here. all i do is respond, comment and start my discussions to the furthest my brain can make. depends on my mood that day, too. i don't try and find out how much per discussion we got paid. as said on the rules of myLot, they have their own mathetmaticians and algorithms which they use to compute our earnings. and it's only them who know how it works. so, i better not think of how much we earn. i like the surprise i get during updates of our earnings. happy myLotting!

I have a spreadsheet on my progress. I have to or I would probably expect a lot more than what I actually get. I can spend a good few hours here and only respond to 10 discussions. What the heck I am doing...not sure. ha ha Because I am certain that it would not take so much time to respond to 10 discussions. ha ha But yes, I keep a spreadsheet of how much I do everyday. it has helped me to know the ballpark range of how much I need to respond to earn a certain amount each day...but it does vary because myLot earns from the users also. If the day is less busy...then we don't earn as much either.

I try to keep track, but i do not count them. I check at the beginning of the day, how many posts I have and then I check the next day, and then I can count how many I did - in big numbers. I just keep posting as long as I find interesting topics to reply to...

No, I usually just make a few posts here and there. I don't really take a look at my post count.

I don't keep track of my discussions and responses. I think I'd go nuts if I tried, and with soccer season starting and all the other stuff I'm involved in I'm not here as much as I'd like lately. Even my office has picked up so I can't hang out here at work like I used too, I guess I'm doing a better job there than I thought! LOL! As far as figuring out the earnings scale, good luck, it's absolutely nuts, there have been some days when I'm not here hardly at all and my daily earnings are good, and others when I'm here half the night and they are not so good.

I want to do at least 25 responses so I do keep a record so that I hit that mark a day. I try to do more but I am satisfied if I do 25. Not to see if I get paid right because of the flexuation of mylot paying system it is impossible. Not critizing but just noting something I have noticed. I like mylot and I just go with the flow.

Hi, I do roughly count the number of post i responded in a day. My target was 10 post per day. Normally i just check the figure on top of my avatar. Once it changes from 130 to 140, i will go to bed ;p

I keep track of how many post I do every day along with how much I earn. I like to se where i'm at. I can't figure out how the pay is so I don't worry about that. Some times I will only responed to 1 or to 3 discussions and get a better pay than if I post 10 or more. I just like keeping track of how many I do in a day.

I know what number I'm on when I start and what number I am at when I get done. I do not record or write it down. I just know how many I have responded to.

I haven't been texasclassygal but I'm going to start. I have set a goal. I would like to know if I'm reaching it or not. I'm starting today to keep count of my responses.

I try to do as many as I can each day, given the time i have to do it in. I open about 8 windows pick a topic for each window and respond to each one at a time, its easier that way. I also have made a promise to try and respond to all my friends conversations that apply to me. I write down how many I have before i open all the windows and start responding. Then when I stop I check my number, and solver for how many i've done. I then put all my numbers into a spreadsheet so i can keep track of my progress on mylot. It is inconsistent sometimes, but I think i've come up with a reason. I think it has alot to do with how well you answer to your topics, if you answer with a poor answer then you will be poorly paid. If you answer with a long or good answer you will get paid well.

I don't write down my discussions or responces because I don't basically earn anything on MyLot. Yesterdays earnings were around 0.5, although I posted many responses and pictures (I've been here for 2 days). I'm confused - it's actually very hard to make money on MyLot, I thought it would be easier.
