I have found some posts discussing about a site which for some, is a threat to the Lot. I checked the site and found out that, each post will be paid 1-7 cents and they also pay through PayPal with $10 payout. They also give 30% for referrals. Practically, they have the same system of earnings with myLot. I also found some familiar names from the Lot and other money making sites. If you seen the site I am telling, would you say that it is a threat to myLot? I will not invite you to see it, but if you are getting concious, you can PM me.

I think the 'threat' to any site is not the site itself but the users. It is the users who promote or flame a site and give the reviews about it. This is also true for those that decide to use sites for their own negative purposes and cheat them. If that works for a while they then inform their friends, and as we have seen elsewhere, that can even be the cause of the downfall of a site. MyLot knows how to handle that situation and the users are happy here knowing that for years it is a paying site. Any problems get sorted out and it just gets better. No, the site that could be a threat to myLot is not even a dot on the horizon yet!

I am not at all surprised that you got bored there If I moved from the family that has made me feel so 'at home' to a new family where I had to start all over again, then I'm sure I would feel a bit leftout too and not feel part of it either. I feel so happy in the family I already belong to that I wouldn't even dream of uprooting and moving elsewhere

There is something magical about mylot that no other social site can parallel. Mylot has spread its roots far and wide and nothing can trigger or shaken the stability of its foundation. Once you are with mylot, it is as though you have graduated from a prestigious college and no other colleges have the same standard of efficiency. They have strict regulations here which is good to govern a large community without which it could not sustain for long like many similar sites which collapse at a slight problem. For mylot even tsunami would not tear apart this site. Your choice of mylot is the right choice. Stay grounded here and you'll never regret for not leaving this site for there is no better site than mylot. Happy mylotting.

djaaumthemoneymaker, I am always skeptical of other social sites that are similar to mylot. I joined few but non of them can make me stay longer than a month. Unlike mylot that has been keeping me active here since I joined in 3 years ago. Some of the social sites I joined have cease operating and now resigned myself to mylotting till they cease operation, which is unlikely.

djaaumthemoneymaker, you are right, that is actually the site i am talking of here. so they are really nothing but a scam? yes zandi, i also joined some other sites, in search of a better online extra income. but it is here at myLot that i also found what i am looking for. everything is here, friendly users, lots of ideas and additional knowledge. and most especially, friends like YOU...

I am not, though some people already know which site it is. And majority of the members here do not consider the site a real threat, so don't worry about it. In the meantime, let's enjoy here. And let that site prove otherwise...

The thing that I wouldn't like to happen would be that members from other sites would be copying some posts off from another site. Its really terrible if that were the case since a discussion that someone has started would be used in another site just to gain more income than to actually have a discussion. I have not been at any other sites that is similar to myLot since, myLot seems to be more easier to use for me.

that is right, myLot's platform is the best, very user-friendly as one responder here said. one thing about that site is copy/pasting. they never and will not allow it, the site says. but i tried it and though it is not posting, i can copy my content to get pasted/posted to my account there. but i don't think i can do much better than i can do with myLot. i remain to be a myLotter and I guess you too...

Hmmmm, yeah, I am really at home at this site or would I ever feel the same motivation that I have here on another site which is similar. I really don't try to look for other sites I guess. Its like doing things all over again. I don't want to do that. Its like some of those social network sites that I have joined before. I just copy paste the same content on my profile from the previous profiles that I have made.. add again friends and so on.. I'm not even active in any of them actually (^_^") Well, that's my case. Others still have their own choice and for those who just really have started there, good luck for them.

Hi neil, Mylot has so much to give to its members even though we complain sometimes, but we all have friends here on and off MyLot from here there is something that I don't think any other site could do. Yes I do see it as a threat as some members here are only here for the money so will go to the other site yet also stay here..so it is a 50 50 thing for those people...I am happy here though...LoLo

hi littleowl. you are actually the first responder to this topic that could consider the site as a threat. i believe too, that those members who came here just for the money will also go to the other site. but still, most of them remains to be a myLotter. would you think it's a sin for a myLotter to join in another site but remains here, too? i just thought of this one, but i found nothing written about this, right?

Hi neil, if a person is just here for the money then guess it isn't a sin if they go to the other site, but it does then prove whom are the true mylotters here for the fun, their friends and the magic mylot brings, see how many people you get enquiring about the site then you will get an insight of how many are here for the money or those whom have answered you and aren't here for that you will obviously not get any those who are you will get a pm...LoLo

I've heard this site is a scam... Anyways, I don't think that site is a threat to myLot, the design used in it is not very much easy to the eyes, and I think myLot would be the prefferable option between the two. I tried out that site, and didn't like it much... only posted 3 times there and stopped. I really think there is nothing to worry about for myLot. Happy myLotting!

i also took a shot of that site, and it's so boring, just like some other people here who also tried. i don't actually worry about the threat, and most people here believe it's not really a threat. it can be, maybe, a competition but not a threat. myLot will still be the best site to all of us.

and that would be the next question, has anyone been paid there? you see bunnybon, djaaumthemoneymaker already told us that two weeks ago he already reach payout but still no reply from their admin about the payment.

if the site has a better paying system than mylot for the same effort then i dnt think its a threat to the users..it might be a threat to mylot but the users can be more benefitted from that site..i would be ready to sign up on that site if it is better than mylot,

Yes they said it pays more than mylot, but the question right now is, do they really pays or have they already paid their users. Do you really want to try the site?

i am sure, djaaumthemoneymaker, that after reading this thread, and all your comments scattered in evry page of this thread, no one will join that site. and those who already joined will never come to that site back again.

i don't think its a threat to mylot., for me even if they got paid much higher than mylot the question is are they legit ., do they got their payment already?

That is really the issue there, are they legitimate, will they really pay their users, have they already paid their members? I still not sure if there is anyone from there who already receive their pays. If there is, I will try to come back to you and inform you. But I don't think anyone from here will ever stay longer there, if they will try it. Maybe, just to investigate...

there are a lot of Money making websites out there, Mylot is not the only one paying, I could join about 10 of them but I don't have the time Mylot is enough for me, I have gootten to know everyone. and I feel comfortable here.

Every one here enjoys myLot and even those against myLot' who are trying to put us down. We can shift from one site to another, we can visit lots of sites, maintain different accounts with several sites and earn. But the legitimacy issue, who pays the members, is here. We can do it all at the same time but the enjoyment, the trust of members, is with myLot. And if we'll continue doing it, in the end, we'll be losers. At myLot, no one loses. Everybody is happy, everybody wins...

I think I know where you are talking about...not sure. I am ok with sticking to this. I'm not in here just for the money and I like it here and it is a trusted site. The other may be too but I have friends here and I'm comfortable. If you are concerned about mylot then why are you directing others to this place? Just curious.

Of course I am satisfied with myLot and I am not directing people to move. It's just that there are some people from here that already tried the other site. And because myLot has no restrictions to whatever we want to share, as long as it will not hurt anyone or flame somebody. I am here and this post, just to share what I have heard from others. Have I answered your curiousity? And one more thing, I never mentioned anything or the name of the site within my post, right?

Yes....you answered my curiosity and I wasn't trying to cause trouble here. I just thought it was odd that you were telling members to PM you for the name of the site and you were a longtime member so I just wanted to understand. I actually read thru the entire discussion after posting my response and had a good idea of where you stood on the issue anyway.....something I maybe should have done first.

I think there are lots of die-hard fans here in the lot, including myself. Therefore, I don't see any threat there. It's fast gaining lots of members too here, as days go by. I have been researching other sites at times during my free time and I must say that they aren't as fun as mylot, honestly speaking. Friends like you are around and others too and I don't think there's any competition in the first place. mylot is cool.. thanks for sharing this discussion..;)

i am new to mylot and i really don't know what site are you all talking about. but the manner in which the whole discussion is shrouded in secrecy does make me anxious. is it a site "whose name should not be taken" why not name the site and let the members decide for themselves. it may or may not be a threat but the manner in which you are keeping the name 'secret' does make it seem like a threat.

I have been here for over a month and I have no clue what they are talking about! And what's the big deal? Who cares what people do on other sites? And what is it any of our business anyway? Did we sign a paper at the beginning when we joined saying we would never post or be at another site? And like you said is this 'other site' so powerful they can say who they are? Are they gonna steal our soul? Come on folks. Sounds like the bad guy in the Harry Potter Movies and Books!lol 'His name who should never be spoken' lol

The site you are mentioning can never be a threat mylot. First of all we will not be paid 7 cents per post there and for most of the posts we will be paid 1 cent to 1.5 cent only there. Also except a single member, no one has been paid so far and you need to have a verified paypal account to get your payment there. No more quality is needed for the posts and we can not expect anything informative there except the spam posts..They concentrate only on quantity and not on quality.Pop up windows are the real threats to the users in that site which are containing virus.Wait for about a month and see the feedback of the members as most of them members are not about to reach the payout.

Though i am even new here at mylot, still i don't feel that any similarsite amy be a threat to mylot. Their each post pay is upto 7 cents, and that's too much.. If it goes on giving so so much it would definately become a scam soon... And mylot is already quite active and reliable community for years...

Aside from the fact that myLot is a proven paying site, myLot has users who are very friendly and helpful to other members. I also remember one site who opened last year. So there were myLotters who tried it and frankly, I was one who was invited to join and try the new site. For just two months, as I can remember, said site closed and never paid their users.

i don't really know which site you are talking about and i don't think it is a threat. It is like orkut and facebook - people who prefer using orkut don't really move to facebook and those who use facebook use both these social networking sites! So, i don't think it is a threat to mylot but of course a competitor :)

Yes you are right. Most people have multiple accounts and let's put email address as the common example. One may have both yahoo mail and gmail, but others prefer to have more and get another account with hotmail and/or live.com. But each one of them still serves their users well. And it all depends on how the people will like to use those accounts. Maybe we can call them spares, and not a threat to each others. Going back to our discussion, the first thing I guess, the other site should prove is payment to members. But with the platform, being a user-friendly site and friendly users, they can't beat our myLot.

As others have said already. myLot is not the only site of its type. However, in my view it stands out from the crowd for two reasons - firstly it is extremely easy to use with an attractive user interface and secondly, it pays regularly and without fail. It's not perfect, but then who is? LOL.

Hmmmmm..kinda remember the discussion that some one posted last year that there's a hacker that created a phoney mylot site just to infiltrate the users of mylot. and there was another site like mylot too at that time. that site closed down. i don't trust that site, i won't even know what is it.

Hi. I guess I missed that one regarding the hacker or I just can't remember, maybe it's a sort of memory loss. . But i know one site who opened last year, who said they will pay more than myLot. I am not sure if that was the site started by a pinoy? And the said site lasted for only months. And the last I heard of it was that they are already closed. Naah, so much for those unlegits, let's concentrate on here. This is the best, my buddy?
