Hi kush, I believe that most of us started here hoping to earn a little money along the way, but then made some good friends here and generally have fun mylotting. However I am of the competitive sort so immediately wanted to achieve a blue star and good reputation which I did very quickly and yes, I do care about it, and don't want to see it knocked down. The blue is also a sign of those who do still bother to make an effort here and don't abuse others, and are original. I would most definitely prefer to mylot with my flag matching my avatar and the earnings left well alone.

you know i dont hate what you like about but i think the mylot is about discussion however big we may become but the thing is that if we will become money centred then how will the job go you know in that discussion i exited coz people started putting up the point of money may be i am not as good as you in understanding nor do i have experience like you you belong to my father's age and in India we respect our elders a lot i want to know why sir you so deperately want money even if we earned money all will go into vain when we die all our reputation will go but if we do good in enjoying what we write and help others and have self satisfaction in what we have got we will be lot more hgappier being content is the biggest happiness and ia m in such small age and hope you please consider this fact race is not the solution of every problem you will win mylot by earning reputation but still you wont be content and you would need more why worry about reputation you are good you know you are who ever reads you know about this then whom you want toi show that you are good you are the best sorry if i had said too much but i have written what i felt right please consider this once i am not like others i am simply different in approachh

Well I understand what you say but you missed my point. I said most of us start for the money but this is secondary when we get into it and start to meet friends. Please don't presume anyone is here desperate for money as it hardly pays enough for anyone to here at all, though of course in some countries a dollar is much more important from here as it has much greater purchasing power. I have a friend here from Indonesia where each dollar earned here makes a difference and can contribute to the household, but likewise he is proud to have a good reputation here. Without the money here though he could not afford to be here as would need to fill those hours with some other way of making money, despite already having a full time job. Eeeech, your father's age group. I am only a year older than you, my age is a glitch.

Well, I'm here to make friends and money. Also I'm here to share knowledge with others and learn something new here. Reputation which is the star is like the reward or compliment from mylot to you. Its show you are active and give a good contribution to mylot community.

On myLot we have the opportunity to earn some momney while having fun dicsussing almost anything with our many friend from all over the world. Other Lotters have the possibility to rate our posts and the result of those ratings will produce our star and our reputation. That will then affect our earnings. Many users can earn enough to provide their familes with bread and milk for a week while inother parts of the worl where the dollar is worth less it will buy something of less importance. We are ALL happy that we can earn here and depending on how we use myLot we will then earn for our efforts. Maybe you are still unaware that the value of the star reflects on the earnings of each individual user. If you had understood that then you would have understood the reason behind all the discussions that you saw. We all saw our earnings potential drop by a lot through no fault of our own. Got it now?

Of course mylot is about money, in fact if some users are only here for the money, so what? As long as they follow the guidelines, then there's no aproblem with it. Money is what makes mylot different with other websites. People care about their reputation because they work HARD for gaining it. The reputation is there for a reason. It has function that affects the earnings, and there are lots of members who have been working for their reputation for years. Seeing a reputation being dropped like that is depressing. And until now there's no alert at all from mylot. I believe we have a right to know what's going on.
