I Did Not Make Payout For The First Time

For the past 7 months since I have been here, this is the first time that I did not make payout. I'll admit that by the earnings being cut, it took a lot of my enthusiasm for Mylot away, but I am still hanging in here. Although, I am not nearly as motivated as I use to be, I still come on and answer my e-mail. I was already drained from all of the posting and the cut in earnings just seem to make it worse. So, now I am just keeping up with friends. It seems that I have so many other things to do now, that I don't have much time to be on here any more any way.

This makes my second time but the first time I was only a few cents short. This last month was awful.

You are right, that is the perfect word for it, awful. I don't know if I am working now just to make enough to cash out or what, I am just going along. Hopefully, thisngs will pick up at some point.

I hope they do myself. I wish I could find somwwhere else like these. I know anothere place that gives gift cards for rating pictures and writings that is how I found out about mylot was from int there at least I know they work they pay but you have to get over 3000 points to get 50.00 but at least they don't take your money away or points like in here

Three thousand does not sound like that much. Actually, I know of a place that pays three cent a post, but it is not as friendly as the people on Mylot. This one is for people who really just want to make money. I have been there a few times and plan to go back soon, but like I said, it is much more impersonal than Mylot. When I go there, I just post and then leave. On this site, they tell you how much the post is worth and after each post they add up your points, so there is no guessing.

Sorry to hear that Rozie. I know with all the earnings being cut somewhat it takes twice or even three times as long to make enough to make payout. I won't be on here as much over the next week as we are taking a family vacation to Orlando Florida and then when we return I will be getting my son ready for school. Hope to see you now and then online. I'll be sure to stop by on your birthday though. Take care and keep in touch!

It is very nice that you are going on vacation. I hope that you mean that you are going to Disneyworld. If so, bring back lots of pictures and share them, well, no matter where you go, I want to see pictures. For my honeymoon, I dream of going to Disneyworld. I hear that it takes a few days to see everything. Well, no matter where you go, have a good time. God bless you.

My son wants to see Seaworld so we are going there and I was also told that it may take a couple of days hence the reason we are going from Monday to Friday. My husband also needs a break from all the travelling and work he has down over the last 9 months and is looking forward to relaxing with us even if it is at the pool or wherever. Jsut spending time together just the three of us is going to be great, like rebonding (so my husband says LOL). Luckily we have a friend visiting so he will be taking care of our apartment so that is good. I will take lots of pictures and post them online. Take care and keep in touch too thanks Rozie.

I thought Sea World was in San Diego. Boy am I clueless. Well, maybe they have moved or there is more than one. Anyway, I have been to Sea World in San Diego. I was a lot of fun seeing the people perform with and ride on the whales and all. Your son will have a ball.

It can be hard. You really have to put in a lot of time and effort. But now, even more so than before.

looking at your number 81 you are not really doing much posting. 81 in two months is not that high. so you gotta get in there and ask and answer as many post as you can.

It is too bad MyLot seems to have changed their payouts (I haven't noticed too much of a change). I am sure they will loose many members because of this. As for me, I am here because some people have so many good ideas and suggestions to problems I have so it opens my eyes to new ideas...

I use to feel very creative when I came one hear. Now, it is really hard for me to try to come up with new topics. I use to feel like it was fun, now it feels more like a job.

I'm glad you're still around. You have some very good discussion topics and you seem to be a very good person.:) I'm feeling the same way. I still haven't reached my first payout yet and I'm on everyday. I don't get to do too many responses, but most of my responses I try to make as best I can in length and content. My friends here aren't even posting as much, so I don't have too much to do anymore. I still enjoy MyLot, but not as much as I did when I first started. I stay mainly for my friend's discussions.

Yeah, I had never connected like this online before. It is a very nice experience for me. The way things are going now, at least I will be able to save for my sister's 40th birthday in October.

It has been the same for me. In the seven months that I have been here, I have easily made payout every month until this month. Now, I have barely reached half of the payout by spending the same amount of time here. I averaged less than a penny per post when I used to get several cents for the same posts just a few weeks ago. I would guess that it probably has something to do with the number of users who are abusing the system, but nobody really knows for sure. All I know is that it is hard to stay motivated when myLot takes away our earnings like this and doesn't even offer any type of explanation.

You are so right. Mylot is becoming harder and harder to work at. I am maybe going to try to change my attitude and maybe things wont look so back to me if I concentrate on saving the extra money. But if things get any worse, it just wont be worth it anymore.

I'm not giving up just yet, although I am having trouble with motivation. I am going to try to post a lot this month because if I don't, I might not make payout even with both months combined earnings. Even though I enjoy spending time here with my friends, I guess that if I can't reach payout in two months I would really have to think hard about whether the time I spend here is worth it.

I know exactly what you mean. I am going to try my best to do better this month. I had practically given up in discouragement last month. Even though I didn't make payout, for some reason, I am still willing to come back here. But I think it may be more out of habit now. If I decided to leave Mylot, the first thing that I would do is block them from sending e-mails to me.

Join the club...lol. It will take me 3 months with the pay rate changes. Not much fun anymore.

Yeah, I feel as though I am just dragging along without much to say any more. I invested a lot of time and effort into Mylot and I am pretty disappointed with the fruit of my labor.

I have to say, after one month of not absolutey commiting to a daily one hour of non-stop answering queries,starting discussions, etc..I built up a whopping 73 cents..whoa..I would imagine that in the beginning, what , maybe a year or 9 months ago, it may have paid off..I think since they've pulled in over 100,000 members..they've cut the payouts so badly, they're cutting off their own noses to spite their face. !! I've found alot of other spots out there to make some money at..

I haven't ever missed payout (except for the few months that I didn't come on here for the same reasons you have statted - actually I have only just recently come back and started posting again as I need the extra cash to be honest) but it's not something that I would worry about as once you miss payout you have that little bit longer to make even more money :) If you have it set on $10 and you don't make it, then you have another whole month to make it and depending on how much you post and whatnot, you could probably pass the $10 mark and actually reach nearer $20 :)

It use to be that I could make it to twenty before they would cash me out and there was some to roll over to next month. Now it is taking at least two months to get what I use to in one.

I wish is was that simple, but so many people have felt the crunch of the pay cut.

My computer was done, so I just got back on the last couple of days, what is this about the earnings being cut? Have they changed the pay outs? was there some kind of notice that I may have missed?

No, no explanation. I even contacted them to see why and they completely ignored the question. I am hoping that the earnings will go up again this month, but it will be hard for me to tell since I don't put much time or effort into Mylot any longer.

When I first came on here it was hard to keep me off of mylot, I have also slowed down, byt I try to get on for a few minutes a day, I have not been paid here for awhile now but I know it is my own doing. I am also very busy with other things. I will not leave the site unless something awful happens, see you around.

Rozie37, I'm sorry you did not make payout. On the bright side you will definitely make it next month. It is hard to motivate yourself when the weather is nice and MyLot is not paying as well as in the past. Good Luck.

I did not make payout this month either. I have been disillutioned because the payouts are going down, but I am here with you also. If everyone leaves we will get all the money to ourselves. LOL
