I joined Mylot on April 1st this year. I've noticed that the participation levels of different users varies a lot. So just curious, how long have you been a member? How many time have you reached payout? What brings you back?

I have been active since the 5th of this month April, I did not do much the first three days as I was new and unsure how it all worked and where to start. I have reached my first payout I am at about 13 dollars at the moment but will be a decent amount more by next payout. I keep coming back because it is fun to meet new people, and see all the discussions, and to start my own also, and see peoples responses to them. I am sort of addicted to this site now I have been on it everyday since the 7th of this month. I will probably be on almost everyday or at least it seems it will be that way. what about you? you r how close to payout are you? what brings you back?

Wholly smokes!!! You are a busy, talkative person! How do you post so much? I like it here, cuz of the community. I come back to learn about the people all over the world. I like to "hear" how and why people react to and feel about different situations and topics. I've also been using this site to conduct some research for school. I'm a full time college student working towards a bachelor's in social sciences. I set my payout at $25 so I've got a little over $18 to go. If I keep up what I'm currently doing that'll be about a month from now. I started out kind of slow, getting the feel for this place. But I've been averaging about 20 posts a day. And at least 1 best response a day.

I'm normally not that talkative maybe more so now that I don't get out much to see many people. I have a lot of time to keep coming back to do more posts .. I am actually slow at posting IMO considering the amount of time I put in I could have done more so far. Keep up the good work you will reach payout soon.

Yeah, I'm much more outgoing when I can hide behind my computer screen. Do you have hot topics that interest you more than others. Like areas that you have more to contribute than others?

I've been here for 14 months now. I had joined Mylot back in February 2007. I have reached payout a total of 3 times and would have reached my 4th, but my husband thought it would be a good idea to let my earnings build a bit before requesting payout and I agreed so I have it set higher now. Though I may put it back to the minimum eventually if I lose my patience and can't wait for payout. LOL What keeps me coming back are the discussions that are on here. Plus there seems to be some really nice people on here as well.

Yeah, I set mine to $25 for the first time, just to see how long it takes. I am pretty impressed at how fast it builds up!

I joined Mylot more than a year now, I'm not sure about the exact date though. I've reached payout just once cos I've been inactive for several months and I just came back a month ago I guess so, I'm trying to catch up. what brings me back is the fact that I am currently unemployed, I don't have anything to do and I am in need of some extra cash while enjoying myself here at home. LOL. Cheers and good luck!

Great! I love this community too. And you're right, I have to chuckle at many of the discussions. Sometimes I respond with my chuckles, but sometimes I just laugh and move on. I like to here that you come her with real questions. That's what originally drew me in. I could ask a question and get real answers from real people.

What atracted you to this site, and why do you come back? I'm just curious.

I am a member of another forum and enjoy posting there and when I found out I could get paid for doing just that, I thought "ooh that is something I must do". I keep coming back, because I am determined to reach payout.

Just out of curiousity, what did you set your payout to? I ask because I'm almost to the minimum, figure I'll be there by post 300 or at the latest 350. I've noticed the pay amounts per post veries quite a bit.

I have joined mylot five weeks back,last week of march.I don't remember exact date. I am very slow in respect of posting or responding a disscussion in mylot.Till today I have made only 202 posts.People are posting 100 numbers of posts on mylot but I cann't.I have a 2 year old son. So far about my earnings I have made very little in mylot. No I haven't reached the minimum payout.Hope that next month I will reach the payout. I have made $2.76. What's about your earnings? have you reached minimum payout?

No, I haven't reached payout yet. I set mine for $25 cuz I want it to be enough to purchase at least one school book. That's my goal here, to earn the money I need for my school books. My earning are at $6.75 today. I get a number of best responses, so I think that increases earnings...I'm not sure. I keep the site up all day. I check in often to see if anyone has responded to my discussions and ones I've responded in. And I keep up on tabs of the interests that I feel I have something to contribute to. I also rate like crazy. Every discussion I'm involved in I rate the respondents. Not always good, not often bad. If the stuff is off topic, or doesn't relate to the discussion at all, or if it is really poorly written, I rate it bad. Everyone else gets a plus from me. I'm not sure if that has anything to do with earnings or not. Seems they keep that secret hush hush. BUT since it seems I'm earning a little more than average, I think its worth it to keep up what I'm doing. Happy postings!

I have joined today will have made 2 weeks. Seemed like am on here much longer. As of todate i have earned $1.23, but I am learning all the little bibits . I stay on for a few hours and then off again. Cant sit all day on a computer at all. 2-3 hours daily is enough for me. My goal is to make the $25.oo mark. I will get there one day hopefully, no rush!

Welcome to myLot. Hope you will continue to be an Active member in here and have Fun. I have been an active member here for just over a yr. and a half now. I go thru spurts on how active I am in here, but this still continues to be a Great place to be. I am more active for the last 2-3 months due to making more time after getting over some challenges in my life. You will find this to continue to be an Awesome place to be. I hope you are enjoying your time here, making a lot of New friends, and learning a lot of New things. I have almost reached payout again this month, and am Happy. I hope you will be able to reach your first payout soon as well.

Thanks for such a warm welcome. I'm loving it here, and can't see myself leaving any time soon. My payout is approaching much quicker than I originally suspected. It really doesn't take much when you are engaged and active in discussions that mean something.

Wow you guys are good posters, you guys have posted so much in about 3 weeks. I have joined about 2 months back, just completed my 100th post yesterday. I don't post much and I usually do not get even a cent per post, so its discouraging. All the best.
