I figure there are many people out there that already know everything about mylot.com. Do any of you have tips to share with someone who is new?

Hello sdgirljoyce! Welcome to mylot!:-) Perhaps no body knows 'everything' about mylot but with experience, people learn and so have I. I'll tell you what my understandings are about how mylot works and how one should participate here. 1. Do read carefully all the "terms and conditions" and "guidelines" about discussions, rules and such. It will help you make lesser mistakes and you will enjoy more. You can find the links to "terms", "guidelines" and "FAQ" at the bottom of page. 2. Always try to be positive. I hope you are not a type of a person who name calls, do hate speeches and abuse. It helps none rather makes an enjoyable experience spoiled. 3. Always try to be descriptive in your posts, replies and comments adding and giving meaningful and helpful comments. It will help you earn more and get positive feedback as well as you will find and make friends working this way. 4. Do participate in a discussion and make it actually a "discussion" rather than an article posted without any feedback. Reply to comments made on your discussions as well as your responses to other discussions. The bottom line is "involve" yourself. Also, always select a "best response", it will make people take you more seriously. Both involving yourself and selecting best response will make people come to your discussions more often. Well these are my starting tips, there is much more that I can share but those are trivial details which you will also learn yourself along the way. Just enjoy your stay here. I wish you best of luck:-)

What a real good answer the rtrick is to have fun and not get caught up in how much you make because greed will strip the fun out of just about anything I have made alot of nice friends and I have to say this is one place to relax and just find peace and serenity in knowing that you may help 1 maybe more people out with your response or comment to help even one person is so great a feeling so all you can do is post post post and post more that way you reach a variety of people.

here is some dollars - I found this lying around thought it might find an owner here.
I can only tell you that it pays to responde and post pictures and do the add comment make sure that you have lots of interest as I understand it you make more from answering topics in them I think if you do 10 to 30 post aday you are off to a good start you make more by keeping a discussion going so I also try to do the comments as well I wish you luck my friend and may you prosper in all you do.
