I believe that the Quizzes are just for fun - I don't think they earn us anything. I don't know why the tab should be blank for you but it may be that they are filtering on IP addresses or that your ISPs DNS is blocking the page for some reason or simply that, from where you are, the site is slow. Each quiz ends up by asking for your full name, address and email and only allows US addresses - pretty useless for those of us (most MyLot members!) who are outside of the US - and WHY do they need my street address anyway? The quizzes are the usual stupid things that one finds on lots of social sites. "What Celebrity Are You?" and that kind of thing. I imagine that by partnering with the site, MyLot hope to earn some money which would indirectly help our earnings in discussions.

Hi owlwings thanks for the information.. I am from India may be thats why I am not able to get that page opened or may be my system settings might also be blocking that site.. If they are asking for our personal information then I dont think it is safe to use that option..

Yes owlwings, chaitra, it's unfortunate that we can not avail of the quizzes for we are not residents of the US. But as of this time, we never know what benefits it will give the members.

Hi Chaitra, Once I noticed this tab and surprised a moment but didn't try to open. Now, after reading your discussion I opened it and it is opening with different headings and I opened one particular heading there is questions are available and you can choose the right answer (yes options are there). If it is blank in your side it may be problem with net connection. But frankly I don’t know the benefits of this, means which can earn something or not. As soon as I get information I will pass on to you.

Hi Sreekala, may be net might be down here.. I tried to open it few times and I was unable to get any information.. Let me try after some time when the net connection becomes alright and check what is there in it..

Really? You know actually the first time I saw it I just ignored it and continued posting but I opened it after sometime because I was curious to know what is that for!!Then I opened it but it appeared blank for me the first time!! The next day I opened it and it appeared correctly!! There are many different quizzes in that section!! I guess they are just for entertainment because I didn't saw anything like an earning money option!! I tried a Twilight Movie Trivia but in the end it asked for some information but as you see I'm from India and I can't participate in it!! Reall uncool!!huh??

Hi shumbamv its really bad that Indians cant participate in it.. but taking personal information is not good I think because there might be chances of spammers getting our details..

It is blank for me too. I hadn't even noticed it was there honestly. But now I am curious, I like taking quizes. So I tried opening the Quizzes table with firefox and wow there are a lot of quizzes in there. If you are using Internet Explorer, trying downloading FireFox and try again. Let me know if it works.
