Be truthful, are we really making money here?

Nope, not since they have over 103,000 people here. I think they should give us a raise, don't you? anybody agree with me?

Well, now technically if they gave us a raise we would be back to where we were in June. Sometime between the end of June and start of July, they cut the earnings big time.

Yes that is quite a deduction, from when I first started.

no I am not making money here. I received ten dollars one time...generally I make pennies a day. I have been away a lot this summer, so - to be honest - I haven't been on very much. Of course, I think they should give us a raise. I think should also recognize us when we reply to someone who has replied to a discussion we/I started. It seems....based upon experiments I have done...that that does not occur. I mean, you would get credited when you started this discussion, I would get credit for replying to it. But if you reply to my response,you would not get credit. I don't think that is right. They should encourage conversations! your thoughts?

You mean to tell me that I don't get paid for replying to your discussions? I am not sure about that one, I thought we get credit for replying to friends discussions.

you know their forumula is 'secret' but I did try an experiment a couple times trying different things. One day I only replied to messages....received a few cents. another day I only originated messages, received a few cents. another day replied to people who had replied to discussions I started....received absolutely NO income. that is the basis of my comments. I have no other proof...one way or the other. I would never discourage you or anyone else from replying to comments people gave your discussions...that is the purpose as far as I'm concerned....having discussions! but just don't expect to get rich from doing it!

No, I don't think so. Since the beginning I noticed they don't pay here. But I like to answer posts and start discussions, and know new friends, that's why I keep staying here in mylot.

Yes, that would be nice. But, most people who have been here a while are saying they have cut the pay. Sounds about the same as everywhere else these days.

Well I agree, but even though there sure are a lot of us, I don't think we really count, at least not when it comes to making those decisions. The amount we are getting paid is certainly way less the it was a few months ago. It has taken me 2 months and almost a week to hit the $10 mark, which means I will see a payout in August. I am $.02 shy of it right now. I sure hope we get a raise.

The quantum of money one expects varies from person to person. For the last 11 months I am here (except for 3 months) and I have so far earned $600 from mylot alone. Some people have made $2 per month some make it $20 permonth. It all depends on how active one is, how efficient one is at the site.

I know you said that, I bet you are not making as nearly as much now, this is to time consuming to only get pennies, that is why I am not here as much, I forgot about the money, I like to come here to hear from friends.

I know there has been a huge decrease in our earnings since last year.Im thinking the population has alot to do with it but alot of the members are not active so i dont know whats up with that.Who knows maybe they will come up with a plan.I'll be here to the end to see what the outcome will be.

I am not always really active, just sometimes I will spend a few days at it and then maybe I will end up not coming on for a while again. I think if I were to invest more time into it then I would probbaly make more money.. so far lately I have been pretty lazy with it lol.. I was thinking about trying to stay really active for one whole month and see how high it could go but who know.. I am just happy with whatever they give because it's free money.. but it would be really cool if they paid more.

to be honest, my earnings are up and down it has always been like that but the average stays. I just can't tell why it's down and then up the next day even though I posted discussions about the same amount every day or even lesser these days since spring. I guess those who have been members since last year will know better to compare earnings from this year.

Well I'm not really making money since I don't post a whole lot. But I will say that I love this site. I love being able to read all the discussions. A raise would be nice but I would still stay if we didn't get one.

I made 6 cents yesturday, woooohoooo, haha. But then I only made 3 post. I am not on that much anymore. We used to spend much more time here way back when. Its summertime and we are all busy. I have heard some talk about some earnings being more yesturday. The 6 cents did surprise me, I expected 3 cents. I used to reach payout in a month, now it takes me 3 months to do it. Oh well, I am still here and I still enjoy my time here. Without Mylot, I would not have met some terrific people. Including you Marcie. Take care.

That is true Vicky, Mylot is Priceless, I went to another website and wrote a Blog, someone from Mylot left a comment on my blog, and said Mylot Stinks, It kind of made me look bad, I hurried up to delete the comment, Lol. I don't think I would refer nobody here anymore, But I can honestly say you do get to meet good people like you, and so many other people. I did get two referals since I been here from that one site that I joined,apsense.com

They have cut the money down a lot since I started. I used to make around $93. a month. Now I go months without anything. It will only get worse, not better. You will work hard on her to earn bupkus.

I am not one to complain about something that is free lol. I love to talk and when I was growing up everyone in my family always called me chatterbox. So the concept that My Lot wants to pay me to talk is just awesome to me. yeah they only pay pennies but I love to talk so those pennies add up very quickly! :-)

No, Marcia, I am not making any money on Mylot. At the rate I am going it would take me over 2 monhs to even earn $10.00 The earnings hear are realy bad right now. I too wish that they would give the people on mylot a raise. I think people would want to spend more time on the site then.Right now you are really just waisting your time for just pennys a day.

Yes everyone is talking about Mylot on other sites, I don't even want to refer people here anymore, I had wrote a blog at Aspense.com I had one reply and that said Mylot sting, I had to delete his comment. because I was bragging about Mylot, and then he came and made a bad comment, that made me look bad.
