I just wasted my time
March 18, 2009 4:24pm CST
I clicked on a task to write a review, it was available by the time I wrote it up and tried to post it I couldn't. I tried to accept again it wouldn't work. So I wasted my time. I went back to look at the tasks and that one was already gone, Sorry but my time is valuable, why did they accept it in the first place if it was already gone?

I haven't even attempted a task yet, my friend. It seems to me they're on a trial run with them, and besides that, they're complicated and time consuming and I feel not even enjoyable. Let's face it, you and I love to write, but most of these tasks are like surveys, and complicated ones at that. I would much rather be in here, with my friends, having fun answering discussions and just earning the pin money I'm used to. Why waste time earning a couple of dollars on a task that alienates you from your friends, and takes you out of the system for hours? I'm not at all sure I want that. Now, if it was writing articles for blogs, or tour companies, on places of interest and stuff... yeah, I'd enjoy that, but nothing has stirred my enthusiasm yet, in the tasks area. I'm not here for the money... I'm here because I like to help people wherever I can, and I like to laugh and cry with my friends. So, I stay in this area, earning my pin money which is a bonus. I've looked in there twice, I think, but I haven't been tempted into action yet!!! ha ha ha. Brightest Blessings my dear friend.

You are right the one it did was collecting websites and email addresses what a boring task, for 20 cents lol as you say it if really had to do with writing then I would love it, the one I wasted my time on was a movie review, so I turned around a posting it ciao, gather, and ac. so I wouldn't waste my time.

I haven't tried doing any tasks so not sure how it works. But sorry this happened with you. I try desperately to reach payout each month and haven't been able to do so for the past two months. So I can understand the frustration.

I am not too sure about that as I have not really gone into doing any of those task yet. I looked at it and seems like most of them will require some time to do it. At least a couple of minutes. I assume that for your case, maybe by the time you completetd the task, so happen others have done it faster and that is why when you posted, it's gone and cannot be posted already. That's my assumption only.

yeah i experienced that same thing. i was not able to start writing cause it will not accept any word or character. and so i just left it. i am one of those early ones who was able to see those task when it was just started or just newly opened. when i get back on it in the after noon it was already fine and i could start posting on the task board but there was only task left to do which involves downloading a toolbar. but that one does not work cause i can't download the toolbar when i have gone to the site given. anyways, hopefully i will be able to take the task soon when i see one.

Maybe there are going to be a lot of glitches until it begins to run smoothly. I am not nothering with it. It sems to be a great deal of work and then you do not know if your work will be accepted or not. This is not for me. Maybe though, I would try harder at it if I was at home all day. I agree with you that time is valuable to everyone. I do hope that you can get it sorted out so that you do not lose any tasks that you can do. Blessings

Thats very bad.. and when i tried to see what mylot has offered i cudnt understand head or tail about it. they are asking too detail search of net and that too professionally when mylot knows none of us here are professionals.. and then they behave in this unprofessional way. i am really sorry for you..not only time but also ur efforts went down the drain.

i thought i was happy at first to know there is something new to earn in here but not for long while i see its not that easy to earn it..i find it more easy to type and respond to discussions than doing the task... I don't know as well why it was gone but I am seeing something in there like saying it will expire in a matter of hour or minutes..so i guess before you finish the task it already expire

Well, that is probably one of the many reasons I have never considered doing any of the Tasks here. Since my time is so limited these days, and I can think of quicker ways to earn some extra $$ here, or elsewhere I guess unless it would be something I am truly passionate about, and know a lot about already I will not be doing any of the Tasks anytime soon as well.

The same thing happened to me too once, only the task stayed up, but kept saying it was unavailable. As you wondered why it was accepted if it was on its way out, I wonder why mine was not accepted, said it was expired, yet stayed on the list. These little glitches are enough to drive people nuts!
