they not happy here at mylot? I checked out some of those other forums and the layouts can never come close to mylot. Its the same like ptc sites. Sure those other sites might pay more, in the beginning but who knows how long they will stay? Why not take the time to come up with more interesting topics here on mylot then you can earn more? I dont know about you, but I need an easy layout on my eyes to post. What do you think?

From my observations there are several reasons why people always ask if there are other forums to earn like myLot. 1) They want to earn faster. I do not know how far this is true but it seems that there is one claim saying we can earn more from another site. I have checked several other sites but they are not exactly similar. One site looks like a scam to me. Many require proper English while myLot is quite lenient on grammar and spelling. 2) They want to earn faster by posting exactly the same thing on several sites at about the same time. At least there should have been some differences in maybe sentence construction and vocabulary. 3) They want to find new friends because they feel the discussions they started here should have received a better response. 4) They feel there are groups of members (friends) who only respond to their friends' postings. My observations may be wrong, and there may be other reasons. As for me, I am now concentrating on myLot.

Very good observations especially the ones about posting the same thing in other forums. Heck we have that same problem here. I never thought about replying to only friends posts but that could very well be true. I reply to good posts, period.

I like the lay out of myLot better than any other forum. i was a member of one other one for a while but all you could see was the title of the discussion. Here you get to see part of the discussion and that saves tie when looking to see what you want to respond to. None of them compare to myLot.

Well personally I feel I could not have said this any better myself. I have always wondered the same thing myself. Personally I have tried out a lot of the other sites as well, and they either close before I reach payout, or quit paying, etc. and I also do not care for the layout like it is here in myLot as well. I have been a faithful member here now for over 2 yrs. and personally for me, this is the best place to be. Yes, the pay may not be as much as everyone would like, but if you keep at it, earning $10 a month is easily dueable for sure.

I can certainly tell by your number of posts just how much you like it here at mylot!!! I must admit at first I came here to make money but now dont even care about the money, and it seems to build faster now. Hard to believe I just passed the 1000 post. Thanks for encouraging post!!!!

It probably has nothing to do with people not liking mylot. It has to do with making money. I'm a part-time stay at home mom (was full time until recently), and I know how much I need to make in a month to cover all my bills, and to save a little bit for anything that's needed later on if anything comes up! There are several places that pay better than Mylot and I know of a few but they aren't paid for posting.

Nothing wrong with wanting more money. It seems to be the main reason people always ask for other forums.

While mylot is reliable and I know they will both pay out and not go away any time soon, I have to admit they don't pay very much for your writing. Ciao, for example, is willing to pay a quarter for a 120 word review. If I posted the very same review here on mylot I'd make less than 5 cents, so you can see there's a big difference. Mylot is easy to use, as you said, and there is very little restriction on what you can post so I stick around and try to at least make my first payout.

Well said. I dont know much about mylots payment ratio but there were many times I made over 25 cents just for a few lines of text and it didnt even come close to 120 words. Hope things pick up for you here.

Well mylot can be boring at times. Sure, everyone claims to love mylot, but some just want change for a difference. You can't discount the fact that there are other better paying sites out there as well. And as we all know, when it comes to money, people are very greedy. Why settle for less when you can have more?

Very good point indeed! It does get boring sometimes.

Hello Sergentrom, Well I do think this is a nice discussion. I too tried to ask and even join other forums when I started here in mylot. I think there are lots of reason that concerns to that, but mine is just an opinion: 1. Maybe they want to have more extra income from other forum; 2. They are looking for a forum that pays much higher than of mylot, as we all know here in mylot, we are not paid by post, we are paid based on our participation, but we are not told as to how they decide on how much will be our earnings for a day, in other site, there is that fix amount, for instance, 1 post is equivalent to 10 cents. So there is a big chance of getting more money in less time. As for me, I have tried joining other forum sites before, but then I didn't take long there. I have notice that most member of those forums I joined , are also member of mylot forum. Most of the discussions are also found here in mylot, I think they have it copied from mylot to their. Another thing, is the forum layout. It is not as organized as mylot, and the topics are limited, most members post all about earning opportunities, then chatting and talking non-sense. There is less learning. When you compared it to mylot, there are many sub-areas and the topics are not limited to talking about earning opportunities and promoting online sites which I think gives us no learnings. I have quit in all those forums, I want to stick in mylot and focus here. I've learned a lot here than in other forums I joined. And besides, it is kinda difficult to maintain many forum sites.

I like the idea of a fixed payrate but quite sure that wont happen here on mylot. It can get frustrating sometimes on mylot when it comes to earning.

Hi there! I think the reason why others look for forums like mylot is because of the earnings. Here in mylot we have to admit the earnings are really small. Even if you try to make quality posts still you have to spend a lot of time responding and posting to earn big in a day and its tiring typing and thinking all day long. As for me, I would also like to find a site similar to mylot. But that doesn't mean that I will leave this place or I don't like it here. I am happy in this community thats why I keep coming back here. But I still need to earn more than what I am earning here so I would like to try out other sites. It's just all about the earnings why I am looking for other forum sites. Ciao!

Earnings here in mylot seem to be taking the lead! You are right it does take time to make quality posts. Heck I type all day at my real job so too tired to type on mylot sometimes.

Yes, I have also seen people ask if there are similar sites like mylot. May be they want to earn from various sites. plus many people think as the rate of income is very less, they may want to earn more.

I like mylot but I think some people think mylot pays too little. That is true, but I personally think its better spending all of your time on 1 site, working towards payout, rather than on a hundred different sites. I would loose track of the sites that I've signed up on.
• United States

Thats a good reason too. I believe other sites do pay better but I also think thats just to build up their membership and they also have all kinds of limits on posts.

I don't think that members asking if there are other site like mylot means that they are not happy here. In fact they are, that's why they said "like mylot" I think they are looking for an extra money aside from what they are earning here and they said like mylot because they want to be in the site which is as wonderful as here.

No site can compare to mylot. No forum that is, but I do understand.

for the obvious reason, they want extra income like what mylot give us. i think its always better to have alternatives, but that doesn't mean that because you registered to other forums you dislike mylot its just that a lot of us need more income than others do.

I understand wanting to earn more.

some people can never be contented with just one. lol! anyway, i agree with you sergeant. the more time one spends posting and creating meaningful discussions here in mylot, the more money one can make. i try to do mylotting while i'm at work and so far things have been doing well. i have other ptp forums as well but i do one ptp forum at a time. i find that i can concentrate better and give more relevant responses. anyway, i guess some people tire easily of one thing and decide to move to another when they get bored. nothing really wrong with that but i think it's not proper to go to a mylot discussion and ask for another ptp forum. just plain annoying in my opinion. happy mylotting. cheers!!!

That used to annoy me too but I thought this is the MEM topic and thats what people are doing. No harm in looking at other ways of earning. It is a bit of a slap in the face to talk about other forums but thats just our opinion

Somehow some are just looking for other sites to earn and that is to earn more as well. There are a lot who wants more and don't want to be contented with just one alone and most of us want more if there is. Some also are just trying to open up the horizon around and to add up from myLot.

I understand and want to earn more too.

I don't think that they don't like mylot. They only want to make more money. This is what I'm doing too. But, until now, I haven't found other sites that gives so much pleasure like mylot. Mylot rocks!

I totally agree, mylot is the best!

They ask because they want a similar place than my lot who pays you for enjoy it to be here and comment or put discussions!!! I think here you can earn a lot money because we dont have a limit of comments or posts and i really love that. I really enjoy it here at my lot and this is a nice place too for meet some friends i am so happy here . Well have a nice day and hope you will have a very good week ;) see you soon and bye bye :D Happy thanksgiving day !!

You bring up another good point. Those other sites do put limits on your earnings. Not here at mylot! I love it here too. Thanks for comment and happy thanksgiving to you too.

I think it's not because they are not happy here at mylot that they ask if there are forums similar to this. They just want to know other avenues where they can earn money. When I look at other discussions under making money, I also feel interested on how others earn aside from mylot. It's a good thing that people share their experiences here about other sites. So that at least, we can be warned if the sites are scam sites. If they pay well, I think it's worth trying.
• United States

Yep, I am all for making extra money too in other ways. Thats why we all come to the MEM topic. Other ways of earning are great but other forums?

I don't think they are asking because they don't like MyLot, I think they are asking because they would like more ways to make money. Most users do more than one pay site they like several the more the merrier and the more money they can make.
• United States
28 Nov 08
But the more time they spend in that forum, the less money they make on mylot right?
