I Have a Suggestion for Tasks!!!

Ive been checking Tasks frequently only to find none available. I know from what others have said that they are being set up. I don't know why I never seem to find them. OK...my suggestions... (1) When we accept our Task & there is more than 1 available in a particular group, we receive a PM with a copy of the actual Task accepted so we know for sure what Task we accepted. (2) When a Task is added, the Tasks Tab above shows the number that has been added (similar to the Messages & Friends Tabs) so we can immediately see that a Task has been added. Even if it's the number that has been added that day compared to last time checked. OK, for those of you having success with Tasks can you give some insight that I've obviously missed so far???

I saw some on the first day and wasn't inspired. The "big" money ones seem to have been a one day wonder. I don't 10 cents badly enough to download a task bar or spend hours doing inane word searches. If this response gets your discussion deleted then I apologise in advance. Virtually every Task based discussion that I've been on has been removed.

Well p1key, I agree with you. There was one that was hours of work & it only paid one cent. I will talk for hours for a penny simply because I'm enjoying myself. However, to work for hours for only a penny seems insane to me!!! I don't want to give up on tasks in general though. I'm sure there are some great ones out there... I just missed it!!!

I haven't tried the tasks but from what I've heard they are picky about them. It comes down to a personal choice as to whether they are worth it or not.

What tasks have you done and how have you found them?

Oops, saw how you found them. Ignore that part of the question.

Hi LadyMarissa! Your suggestions could probably be very useful so may I suggest two things: - you send them to myLot through the contact link so that they see them - you go to the myLot discussion and suggest them there too by responding. You can find it here: http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/1944218.aspx?p=1 By doing it that way you can be sure your suggestions will reach them

Thank you mysd!!! After seeing the responses here, I had planned on contacting myLot direct with my thoughts. I was away when the Tasks became a reality & had missed that discussion. I just bookmarked it & will be reading it over the next several days & see what else I missed. Personally, I think I'll enjoy the discussions more, but I am very much open to doing some Tasks. I prefer to be an all round person instead of limiting myself to just one thing. Variety is the spice of life!!!

Yesterday, I checked to see if there were any tasks, and there was one, today I checked. And there are no avaiable tasks. So, I guess that you just have to check everyday. And then take this task, because it's not there the following day.

I've been checking about every 30 minutes to an hour & finding nothing. That's why I think a Tab Notification would help. Then we could all bump heads when we dive in at the same time!!!

I'm NOT worried, I'm sure I'll find one. Tomorrow is the first of the month & my guess is they'll begin to show back up. I just thought I had missed something since I haven't been around much since myLot started Tasks. It is frustrating to be diligent in looking for a task to do & finding nothing day after day!!!

I have looked! I never get any! I presumed its cuz im a new user!

WELCOME to myLot!!! We're ALL new when it comes to Tasks!!! Even those who have been here for years & years are just learning how to use Tasks as they are brand new. Actually, you may well be one up on the rest of us as you have no idea what it was like before....nothing to compare your experience to!!! Sometimes that is a good thing!!! When I first started, myLot had just done a BIG upgrade. All the regulars were complaining about the new stuff. I had no problems finding my way around as the NEW way was the ONLY way I knew. I actually showed some of the regular users how to find what they were looking for in the new system.

So far I have taken 23 tasks and out of the 23,13 got approved which paid me $8.And the others were rejected.The one flaw I did is that while editing the Logo image to the required size I did not use the proper tool to make the image appear in good quality.I submitted 8 logo task out of which only 1 got approved others were rejected for the reason that the image was not clear.Apart from that,I was quite good at finding the websites,email address and other such tasks.If you want to make a good fortune with those task.Try to take the paragraph task which if approved will pay you $2.One day I found more than 5 Paragraph task,but unfortunately I did not have any idea about the topic which I was supposed to write.I took 2 Paragraph task both of them got approved.I'm enjoying the new task feature of mylot with all my hard efforts.

I tried one of the paragraph tasks also. i don't consider myself much of a writer. I turned it in & it was returned because it wasn't long enough (well dayum they were right). So I redid it & resubmitted. It was returned because they felt I went off subject. I halfheartedly agreed with that assessment. So I redid & resubmitted. It was then rejected because they said I didn't write on the subject I had accepted. I had made a copy of the page I accepted & that was what I wrote about. So, I was totally confused. I couldn't understand why it was returned before to be adjusted if I wasn't writing about the appropriate subject. I pledged to myself to be more careful in the future & learn more about the Tasks. Since then, I have found NONE!!!

Tasks usually go pretty quickly, so the best way to find them is to check multiple times per day! Some days I'll check and there won't be any tasks, then I check again an hour later and there are tasks available. So check frequently throughout the day!

I'm checking every time I get online lately. When I'm able to be here all day, I check about every hour. I didn't know if there was a certain time of day they were posted or if it's hit & miss!!!

I never tried doing a task and succeeded so the suggestion I could give is to make the instructions easier and simple. Make them easier to follow and not something we need to spend too much time. We are here mainly for the basic discussions. And also mylot should increase the pay for such task to make us more motivated. I agree that the number of task should be written beside the TASKS tab so that we will be aware of how many task are there.

I agree with you, I was going to try the task that was available yesterday, but you have to write 500 words regarding fresh painting your home, different kinds of paints, and how painting your home will increase the value of the home. 500 words is a whole lot. To try to earn $400.

That's exactly why I think they need a Tab Notification of Tasks being available. I looked off & on ALL day yesterday & never found a task. I'm assuming that you meant $4.00 instead of $400. I would have been willing to accept that one, but I found nothing was there every time I looked!!!

I think the suggestions are good. But the bad thing is that I am not getting any tasks now. Not a single one

There's a lot of us not getting a single one!!! I sent my suggestion on to myLot as suggested.

I agree with you LadyMarissa! So far I have manage to do three task and that was is the beginning when mylot first added the bar. three days after that I've been checking and checking, and have been out of luck. I just can';t seem to get any. I think your suggestion is superb!

I like your idea that is a good suggestion. As far as my point of view when the task first came out I jumped on a few and got paid for them one got sent back and one is still pending. But now a days when you go to check under task and available there has been nothing. I don't know why this is. but to me they were a waste of time and to much detailing that was not clear in understanding what they wanted on some of them.

I'm glad you like my ideas. As suggested above, I will be forwarding these ideas on to myLot. I can see how Tasks can be a great way to earn some extra money. With more than 166 thousand people as members, it is impossible to please everyone!!! I will just keep looking until I get lucky. I just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something major here!!!

Hi Ladymarissa! We all are looking forward task but the matter of regret is that in these two days there were no tasks to work, personally i am trying to find but there was no tasks by mylot. Myself have submitted about 22 tasks among which 12 tasks has been approved 9 got rejected and one is in pending, the total earning from tasks is $4.45 so far which helped me get paid for the month April.

It seems to me that there have only been 2 days since inception that there have been Tasks available. I didn't see any that interested me at the time & passed them up assuming there would be more coming. Since then, I thought i was just missing them or they were all being taken while I was away from my computer. My brain isn't getting any younger & I find I don't always catch on as fast as some people. I wasn't sure if I was missing an important part or if it's just not there!!!

i guess they don't wanna display the number because they have very litter task , so whose the lucky one who will get it. and for the acceptation yes they did when you got accepted. you will received a message when your task is accepted or not.
