There must be something wrong!

July 21, 2007 9:06am CST
I have posted quite a number of lengthy and quality responses yesterday and today and to my surprise I only got 0.09 yesterday and 0.12 today. I think there must be something wrong because on other days I don't even pos as much responses and not so lenghty ones either that I would have to qualify to be something really good and I at least get 0.05 for that. And now that I have made good quality responses I only get that much. I think there must be something wrong in the system. Has anyone have this sentiment too regarding the latest updates?

I think there's something wrong with mylot too. But one thing I noticed though, they changed their time to update. Plus there are times when the earnings changes in the middle of the day. I think they have glitches. But anyways, maybe they have too many people already and they don't want to pay anymore? *LOL* Anyways, what do you do now? Do you stop? How many posts do you do per day?

Well for one I never really do more than 20 posts per day. If I get to post as much then I would be proud of myself, I often get caught up reading peoples discussions though I do not have any response to them. I just find some discussions quite interesting but not really up for a response. And so I do spend a lot of time in myLot but don't really get to post as much. Well, I am not stopping, I am hoping and waiting for everything to be back to normal again, pretty soon I hope. I would average to maybe only 8 posts a day. And so I would know if I did extra special work on a specific day. That's why I noticed there must be something wrong these past few days.

I sure hope so. Cause aside from the fun here, I believe people still stay because of the compensation.

Well I don't think there is anything wrong with your discussions - as Jimbo said earlier, I think it's just that the pay here nowadays is cr*p! About 6 months ago, I was regularly "earning" $2 a day with about 30 quality posts each day, but now I'm lucky to get about 20 cents for the same thing, which is frankly ridiculous for the time involved. I read a discussion the other day, that said this particular poster (can't actually remmmber who it was now), was getting just over $1 a day for 70 or more discussions! Well - in the "old days" that would have been worth far more, so I think they have just reduced all earnings considerably as more and more members have joined. Thwe only reason I keep coming here is to keep up with some friends I've made here, and because I enjoy learning some of the new things you get from some of the discussions - it certainly isn't for the money, because with a full-time job and no time for Internet access from work, I could never spend long enough in here to make enough to even buy a packet of sweets at the end of the month!

Hahahah! Yeah that's true, having to see what our contacts have posted as response to our discussion and to catch up with them is mainly the reason why we are still here. I think we even spend more for the electricity bill than what we can actually make here for a month.. hehehe

So far I appear to be doing okay. My earnings are consistent each day. However, I am not sure what is going on...there are so many posts questioning about the reduction in earnings. Were the responses on your site..or others. I found that out when I spend hours responding to my respondents? Personal site postinghat doesn't count for earnings but I am sure you already know that. I would have done it anyway...but now I know the difference in earnings there. Maybe someone should post some kind of 'petition sight' where members could collectively 'complain' and send it to adminstration in one big swoop. Maybe that would get their attention. I saw last month that many mylotters were very excited about their payouts to paypal. I have a figure that I have supposedly made..but will only consider it 'real' once I see the balance transferred over to my account. They said it will go in by August 15th..so I have no reason to believe it won't. Hope it works out for you and you find the answers you need.

Yes I do know that I earn by making responses to other's discussions, and that was what I have done.

I do think the same Because the same thing is happening with me also. I have worked and post so mant responses. The result will be desparate and worst. So these days i feel unhappy with Mylot. The same thing I asked with Mylot as my query and they dont even replay for that. In this method i think the mob suppoert for mylot will be eleminated

I don't know. I have not been around a lot lately, but it seems that I have been earning less than I used to, and I used to make even shorter responses. Go figure!

I don't really post new discussions on a regular basis, but I answer a lot of discussions. I also uploaded a lot of pictures to my interests and to some of my discussions, and I find that boosted my income a bit. I've got $2.10 now, but I haven't logged in until today after about a week away from the site. I think the earnings are going down a little though. After all, the more people they get, the less they'll be able to pay us... I hope that doesn't continue though.

I also noticed that there is a sharp decrease in mylot earnings. I suggest you to try this site http://tinyurl.com/2gy9ty which is almost like mylot but pays 3 cent per post.
