How do you find out what your rating is?

Mine went down today too. I posted 10 different topics on riddles and my rating went up every once in awhile then started going back down. I lost 3 credits responding and commenting on those discussions. Don't know what the deal was.

Some discussions are deleted by myLot if they get to many complaints about the content. You lose the point that you got for answering that post once it is gone.

Sorry for my stupid question.. is that mean our earnings gone too if our comments or discussion deleted?

Yes. If the topic goes anybody who posted within that topic loses what they gained from the discussion.

Has been happening to me too. And I am sure that you are gonna find this discusion being deleted too. There is an option for the website to delete comments that they don't like, but you don't have the option to delete your own comments or posts on this site. I have lost a number of posts because the website has not liked them, and my ratings have dropped too, and I don't have the option to maak a plus or minus for any of the answers posted. And I just don't understand their method for rating or converting that rating to dollars

Occasionally topics will be deleted if they fall under what MyLot deem inappropiate, the positive/negative feedback also had baring. Negative feedback will/would diminish one's rating which should actively encourage anyone to not run around posting one word replies if we all used it correctly.

thanks for the info, i try to type as much as i can but sometimes the answer just needs one word. like people will ask "what is your favorite color?" i guess those are dumb topics anyway.

My rating went down too... Not that much, actually, so I'm still lucky! But my earnings didn't move since yesterday, even if there was an update in the meantime (one hour ago). Is this also due to the new arrangments on the website?

I read that if someone gives you a minus, the rating goes down.

This seems funny? I've noticed that mylot has gotten rid of their rating system for maybe you'll have better luck now.
