Undoubtedly Mimpi, My earnings here have moved at a snails place over the last few months and the only reason i've been active here is because of the interaction with special friends like you. This place is great, so even if there were no earnings, i'd still come here, earnings or not. You have a wonderful day as well.

So true! When I came in i had little idea about online earnings and i kept coming in whenever I could. It's only few months later that I realised that the earnings are real!

We get drawn into this place and although there are times that i don't do much, i just look around, reading some of the interesting posts and see who's active.

well, it depends..as a matter of fact, i'm not an active person in mylot due to my study, and I always get activated during the semester breaks..even though, the payment is quite little here as the cents dropped down very slowly, yet, i like this site a lot. i do learn a lot from such a visual written communication.. So, I guess, i would continue activating myself here despite whatsoever might happen...

That's an honest reply, I really appreciate. Yes, earnings act as an incentive but how can we forget the beautiful community here that enrich us every time we drop in!

That's my thought as well. There are other sites which pay and pay more. The sole reason for being here is the beautiful friends that I am fortunate to have met. I owe it to you all francis. Lots of love.

Well, I have forums where I joined in and I get active there because of interesting topics even if it's not an earning site, they just give credits where you earn reputation. I think it will be the same here if topics are still interesting, even if they don't give earnings anymore.

I think the quality of this is because of the members who are here to let loose, have fun, share, show their concern for each other. What more could we ask for!

Really? I still get paid for participating but very minimal like 2 or 3 cents for 10 responses. But I still get a lot from doing tasks. Maybe you should do that too. It still helps.

Sure I would hang around. The original reason I started here was to have the chance to chat with people from around the world and share information about different topics. I think it is great that we get a little incentive to do so but I think the knowledge we gain from each other is far greater.

I think for most of us mylot has been therapeutic and we come here primarily for that reason. Keep lotting and keep having fun.

Hello there, Well this is interesting. I think i probably would not be active anymore. Well, it depends if i have friends here. Then i will keep myloting. But it is also interesting to keep sharing and exchanging information with people here at mylot. I would probably check in occasionally and search for some information that i want to know or make new friends. But yea, i think i would love to kill time here and improve my writing skills instead of focusing on making money only. Cause i have joined mylot for about 2 years now and i have not even reach any minimum payment at all. But i do come here occasionally to share information and write. So i do not matter if my lot is paying or not. It does not make any difference to me at all. So nope. I would still be active but would come here once in a while. :)

So there you go! Obviously, you are here not only for money but for contributing and learning and also for the friends. Spending more time here, I have grown this unaffected concern and bond with some of the users, without being in touch with whom I feel concerned. Earnings are incentives and when you get paid for something you love doing - nothing like it. Happy mylotting!

Hello mimpi, Earning one or two cents by post is a nice bonus but will not pay my taxes, nor my internet connection : it does not matter if myLot pays or not. I like myLot and I will stay active here as long as I'll enjoy this site.

I guess i wouldn't be active anymore. It's hard to start writing sometimes because you feel like people who respond are writing just to get that one cent. I write to contribute something to mylot and i think having longer discussions would not only be more interesting, but would also pay more. Than you write a 10 sentence discussion topic and someone responds with three words and you're like thank you. Let's face it mylot doesn't really pay that much... if you'd work in a cafe for one hour you'd earn more but still i like to write here because of that small prize at the end of the day. Small prize but it's still enough to motivate me. With that gone i would stop using mylot. Have a great day

I was listening to on interview of a famous author who was narrating his working time. It was like two hours early in the morning, 2 hours after breakfast, 2 hours post lunch, two hours after dinner. and he was talking about his writing schedule! I was wondering how could he be so mechanical and how could his creativity flourish. But it does flourish and I am one of his admirers. I digressed, I know but the point is its not always about money and as you have rightly said we could earn much more in some other place. so why mylot? The same reason that you are here for.

Actually, if myLot were to stop paying, I tihnkn that many, many, people would leave. Many of the people on here are hoping for a "get rich quick" kind of thing, failing, and THEN leaving. But if myLot weren't to pay anymore, they wouldn't even get the people who were trying that. Personally, if myLot wasn't to pay anyone anything, I don't think I would be here. Good question by the way; it helps us to see how concerned people are about making money by doing anything they can for it. :]

I agree with isp34kl337, mimpi911. As some knows, my first intention when I joined this site is just to respond on the topic that I read while browsing the net... I honestly did not know that time, that this site pays... I signed up just to leave a messege... Left the site after that. Got an email from mylot but did not bother to read it... left it unopen for two days... Went back on it to erase the mail but decided to read it first before doing so... Then that is the only time I learned that this site pays us from leaving a message-- responding... The main reason why I got interested and decided to stay and be active with mylot...

mimpi1911 I would still be active but not quite as much as I do reallyneed the money I make here just to be able to stay on the net and keep my bill paid. I have a very limited budget so need every penny I can make anywhere.

Hi Mim, It's funny that you should bring this subject up! It just so happens that I haven't earned a single penny in days. Let me re- phraze that. I haven't been paid in days. Do you know something I don't know? I've always said, I don't come to Mylot for the money, I come here for my friends. If mylot has quit paying, I would like to have a notice, but if I heard about it throughthe grapevine, that would be ok too. You see, I trust my real friends and that includes everyone of you that I have gotten close to. You know who you are, including you sweet mim. So does that answer your question? Love Ya, Leenie

I think that I would still stick to Mylot as I did while people were crying foul last month over the developments about the payments to Indians in Paypal. I was having nearly 180$ in my account which was there in for quite some time without me claiming for it. I never cared and went on Mylotting not knowing whether the dust would settle or not. I would do the same in future too. The time being spent here is not the money but it definitely worth the pleasure. PS: I got the money transferred to my account last week.

That's great news. I have been very busy for sometime and in between so many things happened. Had it been only for money we would have gone to other more highly paying sites. The beauty of mylot is in the community, the friends and earnings are incentives.

You are right Mimpi.Mylot money is not that strong to keep us here this long.It is our decision to stay here for the fun and freinds. And about the more highly paying sites you have mentioned.Do such sites really exist?

Yeah, as far as I am concerned, I think if the mylot will not pay me any more. I think as long as it exists here, I will I will try my best to log in here as often as possible.For me, here not only can give me a way to communicate with people all over the world. But also can help me to improve my English a lot. So I think I will still be here.

I think, we all have learned and got so much from mylot that we cannot but log in here once in a while. Leaving is indeed difficult. But earnings are good incentives.

You have a point there. I think, there would be hardly any new users and many old would leave also for earning is a good incentive. Thanks for your response.

Honestly, I would find another good social site that pays...I have to agree that I am enjoying my time in here but I am also honest that the earnings we are getting here has a factor too... It somehow motivates me to response and be more active in here... If ever mylot stops paying, I might come here still but would not spend an hour in here anymore, that is why I am glad mylot pays, because we earn money by just sharing our thoughts and opinions... Interacting with others is really good but it is really more enjoyable if we get paid from doing it... I am honest and I don't want to say I will stay the same coz definitely I am not... And I don't like mylot to stop paying us... What if mylot decided to do this because mylot sees that many members say that they will stay the same and be active as usual even if they stop paying??? That I definitely don't want to happen... heheheheh

I think most would do that and there would be hardly any new sign ups hapenning. The earning is a good incentive and a sweet one too.
