Has anyone ever calculated what an average hourly wage is at Mylot?

It seems like this is just spare change to me and yet everyone keeps talking about MONEY, MONEY, MONEY. Has anyone really taken the time to calculate the wage considering the time spent surfing this site? Just curious.

I really do not think that is possible. For one, everyone earns a different amount of money here based on how much they post and how well those posts are formulated. Two, not everyone spends the same amount of time here. So an hourly wage for one person may be completely different than an hourly wage for someone that spends quite a bit of time here coming up with great posts compared to those that just post several discussions in a row that are one sentence with terrible spelling and grammar. And finally, Mylot has a mathematical formula that calculates how much money you can make here. I believe that is based on the quality and length of posts as well as several other things we probably do not take into consideration. Therefore, coming up with an hourly wage for Mylot just is not possible.

For the earning criteria to be that strict surely mylot would need to employ real people to vet the posts. The computer could easily check the lenght, grammar, spelling etc but for quality of content there must be some human interaction. Really I would just like to know some averages that people earn, amount v number of posts, maybe work out the average pay per post and the averge post length.

If you'd read the Mylot guidelines you will see where it says a mathematical formula is used to calculate how much you earn and that IS based on several criteria. I don't think you realize that it is different for everyone. You do not always earn the same amount of money for the same amount of posts or the same quality of posts. I know that sounds crazy, but I just don't think many people get that sort of thing about Mylot. I've been here two years and I know. It's not that easy. You're over simplifying it.

I guess what I've been thinking is that this is primarily a place to have fun AND make a little pocket change. But not a place to make money. It doesn't have JOB status, right? I think minimum wage has to be 20 times greater than this. Do you agree?

Well, most of us who have been here as long as I have... which for me, is 23 months, I have long learned that this is just some Extra income on here, and it is nice to have. If you are looking for anything significant, you might make .25 or a little or more in here an hr. But most of us are on here just to make New friends and such more than the money. The Extra $10-20 I get in here each month though sure is nice.

Thanks. I guess when I started this discussion I was just surprised by how many critical comments there were about people only doing this or that "for the money", as if they were trying to get rich here. I was wondering about people's sense of reality to be honest. Now I have noticed that the talk about earnings here is simply just another thing to talk about. Thank you:)

I never thought about doing that. I suppose different people woul dhave different wages though because you can be on here for an hour and only do one post versus someone who is on here and hour and they did twenty post. Besides, don't think of it as being about the money. Think of it as being good conversations and making friends. Happy MyLotting.

As many others have said here, it is fairly impossible to calculate an hourly wage here as you never make the same amount for the same number of posts and there is no way of making an estimate of what you make. If you can type fast and answer a lot of responses then you probably can make more than just an average person.

Thanks. When I started this discussion I was just surprised by people talking about making "big bucks" here. Now, I realize that it is just something to chat about. Honestly, I wondered if they were a little naive. Thanks:)

Of course at the beginning I was also asking question about the money earned from Mylot. latter I forget about it and doing just for fun.

I guess I asked the question because I was wondering "Why all the fuss over a few pennies?" Now I realize that it is just another way to have something to talk about here. Thanks!

That really depends on how many post you can make in an hour. How many can you make? I can make about 12 posts in an hour. That is without any interruption. If we say I can make $0.15 with that number of posts, then $0.15 is our hourly rate. But it can be more than that if we have started a discussion which have acquired a lot of responses in less than an hour. I think we cannot really compute the hourly rate. Have a nice day!

Thanks! In other words, no one can ever get rich here. Right? So it's fun with the added benefit of a little change in your pocket. Am I right?

I agree, would love to know this a new member. I don't get why the earning structure seems so secretive?
