If you were not paid to discuss at mylot would you still come here?

My answer is yes I would still come here as I would not want to lose contact with the great friends I have made here. However I would not come here as frequently, I would just quickly catch up with people a couple of times a week. So what would you do in this instance? Would you leave mylot altogether? Or would it not change your particpation here at mylot?

Just to be honest... no, as most mylotter have I started here because of the money and if mylot is not paying us. I think I would use these time to look after other program that pay instead of staying here. But I think mylot is somehow successful, because I dont think we will have so many member if it's only because of money or discussion.

You raise a good point there about mylots success, it wouldn't be as successful if it was just about the money alone, I think a big part of it also has to do with the great people you meet here. Let's hope mylot keeps paying and sticking around for a while. Have a great day and happy posting.

no probably not because i need to find alternative ways to make money than working outside of the house due to severe arthritis. while i do like mylot for the discussions, i like it more because i get paid!

Honestly saying No .I am participating in the discussions mainly because of money . If they are not willing to pay for it , then why should we come here . We have lots of online and desktop Messengers to chat and many social Networking Sites for Discussions , and many online Photo sharing Websites . We cant say even a single reason for sticking to this site , if they are not willing to pay for us !!

I appreciate your honesty, you must admit though it has been a great site to make some good friends and get good advice. The money is definately a huge plus for being on here, I agree.

Yes I think we all first joined here because of the money, that is a good point. However after a while you strart to form friendships with people, then you really look forward to posting discussions and responding to your friends. I have had lots of great advice in the few months I have been here, there are so many people with different knowledge and life experiences it is great. Thanks for your response and honesty.

If I'm being entirely honest, I don't know if I would continue to frequent MyLot if they didn't pay me to do so. I only really use one other forum, which doesn't pay you to post, but it is a brilliant forum, full of information on lots of different things, and some fantastic people. The main thing that annoys me about MyLot is people posting inane drivvel that is barely understandable, just to earn a couple of cents. I only really reply to things that I think I can talk about for a couple of minutes. I wouldn't say that this is an informative forum, and without the paying aspect, it wouldn't have much 'pull' for most people.

Thanks for your honesty, I think the paying aspect definately does have a huge influence on alot of people here, but I still think it would be great to keep in contact with friends made here. Can you tell me what the name of the other forum is, it sounds great?

Hi kiran! I was not aware of this site before. One of my friends recommended this site,for it being a paying programme. Otherwise, i think, he would not have recommended and i would not have joined.

My answer would be the same as yours. Basically, I like the people here in myLot. I have gained friends here. This is also the very first forum that I have joined since I started with forum posting. Though, I have not been that active since I have a dayjob and is quite busy for the past few weeks. But as much as possible I try to visit myLot and post or if not reply to the post of others.

Great minds think alike, lol. I like the friends I have made here and it is great to chat to them. It would be hard coming here regularly when working everyday, but least you know mylot will still be here when you have time. Happy mylotting, have a great day.

I've been here since God knows when and I'm currently at $8.87. I have no interest in earning money. I'm here to chat the day away and make friends. So yes, I would still come on here.

I would still come here, but this site would be no different from MySpace, or Facebook, or any other sie that I visit. It's the mony that keeps me coming back here more often.

You are the first person so far in the responses that I have read that has said they will still come here, good on you. I agree with you, if this site did not pay, it would be very similar to facebook and myspace. The money definately does help us all come here regularly. I use to go to facebook everyday, now that I have found mylot I visit mylot everyday and facebook every few days, lol. So I guess money is a big factor on why I come here too.

I will still be here but maybe not too long, I will see myselk working on another site for sideline for the rest of my time but participating here in mylot will still be part of my routine..I can post questions and gather so much informations from people. That's the best thing I get here, fun and learning!

I agree it is fun and you gain lots of knowledge here. Good to hear you would still be here, I would miss chatting to you. This site would become like facebook or myspace without the money.

Me too! LOL! I prefer mylotting than watching TV! Anyway, good thing also we are paid so it adds the motivation! Cheers!

Reckon, the answer would be a NO. Mainly because, after the initial excitement, it is the dough that keeps us going.... in addition to the crazies we meet, the crazy responses and ofcourse our funny behavior. It really is an incentive.

Dough does keep us rolling here, lol, I also like the crazies we meet here too, he he. I still think it would be great to come here without the duogh, just not as often. I would miss chatting everyday.

I totally agree with the other respondents that the "payment" part makes a great deal in keeping us here. To be very honest, I would visit this site and join forums but not as often as I am doing now. I am a member of other sites too which I respond for free because its educating/teaching people the English language. I gain international friends there which is very cool. In myLot I gain different opinions and views about little things in life. Take care

Thanks for your honesty, it seems like payment here is a huge incentive for us to be here. But like you said it is great to make international friends and hear different opinions and views on various topics. Have a great day.

Great minds think alike, lol. I agree I would not come here as often if it didn't pay, but I would definately not leave her for good as I would miss chatting to all my friends. Have a great day too.

It is nice to get some $ of course, but that is not my main reason for coming and writing here! It is when I am feeling lonely and in need of some company that I come, to talk, so to speak! I like this place, it kind of grows on you and it is difficult to stay away.

It definately does grow on you this site, I find I am liking this site more and more by the day.

I would perhaps do but not as often because honestly I am spending more time here to earn more but there are helpful tips and views worth reading and sharing so I would still do even without pay.

Mylot is intresting, i m a freser so i cant say anything, but i hope to get good freinds from here, with help of mylot i will be able to know them more and more, especially from the discussions :)

Mylot.com is a great place. Yes, I would definitely come here if I wasn't getting paid. But, I feel the same way as I wouldn't come here as much if there was no money. Though I come here a lot now, I would come here much more if the amount per post was more. Also, if there was no money involved, I wouldn't post as much. I would just come and read a few discussions and then go on to another site like Myspace. Good discussion to start.

If it happened that all of a sudden we were not paid anymore to come on here, then I would still come on. But it would definately not be as much, it would probably be about once or twice a week like you. I would not be on here for hours a day like I am now though.

Kiran, you have asked a question in a different manner, many members ask the same question straight away - "Do you come to mylot for earnings only?" I alway give the same answer that earnings are secondary for me, it is the interaction with friends, it is the sharing of my thoughts and views with others, which is more important to me. I would definitely come here on mylot, even if there are no earnings, to intereact with my sweet and nice friends like you, who for me are more precious than money.
