Does it really matter how much you make from mylot?

I have seen this over and over where people make a discussion about complaining how much they make from a discussion or 3+. Is it that important to you? I remember when I started here, I was interested in the money, but once I started discussions they started to hit home more. Mylot is like a therapy but for free. I love this place and for me to hear people constantly dwelling on each cent per post is upsetting. Just enjoy the environment. I know I will get some negative responses but I just wanted to speak my mind about this.

On my first account which have been banned already... This is now my second account... as of now I can say that even if I once hated mylot for being mean.. Now Im coming back cause I missed the environment really! and Im back for my friends and replying on some interesting topic once in a while.. I am not that active as before because before, I was after the earnings.. since now that many are talking about the slow earnings, I can say that i dont care about earnings at all anymore.. at least in this site only..I rely earning from other sites.. take care and have fun!

Am sorry about the ban, what mylot guidelines did you breach? That was sad but am amazed and happy at the same time that it has not dumpened your motivation to post more discussions, keep up!

This totally annoys the cr@p out me...This is not a get rich quick site...The money really has no significance to me, Its more for the great discussions and wonderful friends that you make...In the guidelines it states that if you have a problem to contact mylot directly....If they dont like how much they are getting paid, then they can leave...simple... You shouldnt get any negative responses, because I know that I for one am fed up with these discussions...

It really doesnt matter to me, I know you get peanuts, but the opportunities you are opened to can be amazing-recently I joined this program whose link you see below, from one of the mylotters, but I now can see I have eaned my first $75, it is a mazing! While in mylot I have earned $24.71, I find this very exciting-tomorrow you never know, if I get another dicussion with bigger opportunitites, I could get $1000!!! So it is not the money, it is the wealth of opportunities of networking with other mylotters as we post discussions for the little red cents here on mylot! http://www.awsurveys.com/HomeMain.cfm?RefID=surv7

To be honest, I'm more in this for the money. Don't get me wrong, the conversations, posts, and topics are great but I'm really here to earn a few dollars extra. I'm more motivated on the money side than the topics themselves. Yes there are times when I really enjoy, but there are also times when I find it so hard to react to topics. I rarely go into topics on debate or anything political or too serious. Mostly only the fun stuff. This is my venue to learn more about the world, to be heard (well, in this case 'read'). Plus to react. And the best part, I get paid by doing so. =)

I don't often respond to topics regarding the money issue here. to me..your pay is between you and the person paying you. I felt compelled to agree with you here. this place is about far more than the money...seriously we are talking pennys here. I do think that the people that started this community are trying to find a bunch of quality people looking to find more than just a few dollars. I actually don't even think about the money end of it. It isn't going to make or break me...it is cool that they pay...i do appreciate...I'd probably be here anyway. I do enjoy the discussions. They have to have the rules and guidelines...a quick look at new user discussions will show you all the bull that comes in here. I am fine with it ...am glad they are trying to weed out the ones that are here just to earn a buck. The quality here is what will keep me coming back...not a few cents.

i agree with yopu i used to use a regular forum that didn't pay a penny so anything is a bonus. However on the other hand i do like to challenge myself to see how much i can earn not for the actual money but just for the fun of it. At the end of the day i don't think anyone is ever going to become a millionaire for mylot or any other paying site so just enjoy it for what it is and have a good time.

Hi. I have complained a little about it also but the reason is that I was referred to Mylot for earnings. I have been earning online for years and was referred here for extra earnings also. I do have alot of good friends here and i do enjoy Mylot sometimes but I have moved much of my time to other sites now because I have to help earn some income from home to help my family survive. I don't blame you for speaking your mind. I found a great site that has paid me $61.90 in June and I have $120.00 coming for my work in July. It is free to join and all the offers and surveys you do are also free. No credit card is required. All you have to do is go through the whole questionnaire, offer or survey and submit your email address or your zip code and you will get paid about 60 cents for each one.

I think everyone love money and everyone love making money on mylot. It does matter me to devote time and get some amount of money so that i can pay off some of my bills.

Yeah, I recently started using this place but I find it really addictive. I don't even know how much I'm making yet I'm still here, posting. Way better than surveys and actually get a chance to talk to people online about topics we share interest in. I like!

It maters to 90% percent of the people in mylot. All of the users here came for the money. But some of them stayed because they are actually enjoying it. I am not sure I would keep up with MyLot if it stops paying. Maybe it's because I never got payed yet from anything I did in the internet. The exitement of getting my first check, as much as it is big, will not probably outshine the disappointment that will come if Mylot stops paying. MyLot wouldn't be Mylot if this big portion of it will be cut off. I think payments should go up and not down to encourage more people to join.

I don't care about it. i started mylot just because it is an english website, i can improve my english if i am here, up to now i still don't get why people can earn here. But it doesn't matter, since i begin to join in some discussionsi am interested in,i i definitely love here, i don't have too much time to stay here, but i will be here when i am available. Just like what you said enjoy the environment! I totally agree with you.

I am interested every day to see how much my earnings have gone up on mylot but I am not really here for the money, I just really enjoy replying to peoples comments and it gives me something to do, the thought of actually making some money is in the back of my mind but it really isnt that important.

I was always here to meet people and to see what others have to say..I like it here and it doesn't matter if I make any money or not..It is fun here. I have been having a terrific time just meeting others and hopefully helping others and accepting advice for myself...The money doesn't matter..If they said they were going to stop paying us I would still stay here...

I came here because I thought it's fun to do things I like. I get to know people, I can talk about things I like AND... maybe I get a little money for it.. But money isn't THE reason for me to be here.. ;)
