I keep wondering when are people going to get the message across their brains that if you type you earn, not my slogan, but D iana's I type I earn. Think about off line jobs. If your friend Mary starts to work at the company where you wo rk, does that mean you will get paid for her work? no no no. You work you get paid. Your friend Mary works she gets paid. Now listen and repeat" I type,I get paid.I d o not get paid for others responses to my discussion." your take on this, fellow mylotters?

I am amazed at how so many do not understand that they will not get paid if others are busy here while they are not Just in case anyone thinks this is bullshyte it is ALL in the Frequesntly Asked Questions were myLot tell us: "If you earned nothing, then you didn’t post anything" http://www.mylot.com/o/faq/faq6.aspx Then of course, who read the FAQs these days either?

hi diana and sinful rose I had just r esponded to an older user here who glibly stated we get well paid for quality responses. now where in hell and damnation does this wrong info come from as it does not come from mylot information anywhere.Now I was suprised as he had been here almost as long as I have so why did he put out wrong completely wrong information. I mean comeon newbies will believe him as he is well respected here but he still has that wrong old idea that mylot admins pays us for the responses we get to our discussions? I d o wish we all wou ld read the guidelies and the frequ ently asked questions. maybe its going to come down to newbies being made to read the infor then take a short qu iz, ikf they flunk they have to rereaqd and take it again, a ll this befdore posting one word.

Instead of making anymore tabs and stuff like that...when a user newly signs-up in MyLot, why not have a wizard or something--to take him/her around MyLot while summarizing to him/her the basic MyLot rules too. I think that's how other sites work to minimize violations and confusions. No all people read the FAQs. But they'll be forced to know the facts if upon entering they're bombarded with it already....albeit mildly...

Hatley you are right it doesn't have to be a good response it can be short and simple and you'll still get something. Maybe not a lot for compared to one that is a bit longer and more detailed. The more you participate the more money you will make in the day. If you sit with mylot up all day that doesn't mean you make something. The more you do the more you will get meaning the more you discussions you find yourself in the more likely you are to get a bit more then maybe someone that has only did one discussion for the day and hasn't responded to anyone else.

You are right it is My lot, my money my work so if others undermine it and bring down the quality why yes I will speak up.Diana does this and nobody tells her "why do y ou do this?" we care thats all I can think of to say.

Hi, Hatley, I think maybe they just do not want to see you blow a gasket with high blood pressure or something. It is hard to tell from words that you are not going to fly off the handle or have a stroke. You will continue to post this type of post occasionally and hope someone will understand, although yes, it is their choice. It is like me posting about blood donation. I do it from time to time, and I hope it will motivate someone, but it may not, but I will still post. I am not criticizing them if they do not give, but just saying it is a great thing to do if you can. You are reminding us again that we need to type to earn.

I guess you found another one Hatley. I love that I get paid for my good quality responses, not just yes and no answers. On other sites. . . I play, I get paid, I post, when others view it, I get paid, or I view videos, fill out offers, take surveys and I get paid. There must be someplace out there that is just a popularity contest where if you get the most responses you get paid, but if there is, I surely have not found it yet. So here I am, typing my little heart out, so I will be paid. I like these somewhat early paydays, by the way.

I suppose someplace on the net there's a popularity contest type stuff where one gets paid for someone else' s work but by now people should know mylot does not do that,. the people who respond to my discussions get paid nicely and if I take time and effort to comment back I see my earnings rise nicely too. yes I am typing until my hand goes numb. saw my doctor oh that just carpal tunnel syndrome he said. dont worry about it . o o okay hes the doctor but I do not really enjoy the feeling.

hi bunnybon that puzzles me too, I mean here they get a topic and some are pretty good. so one of my friends p osted ab out fifteen disussions and I only saw a couple of responses . again he does not go back and comment on them,which makes me think he also believes all he has to do is make a lot of discussions, garner a lot of responses and get rich which is all false. Yes when I comment back like I am doing now my earnings really go up as you only get a few cents for making the discussion so its up to us to comment back on all the responses you get.I really like this young man and he has made a lot of good discussions but yet he does not go back and comment back on them. he did make one complaining about how much time it took to make comments on the responses. I advised him to make only a few so he had time to comment back to all the responses. I do not know if he took advantage of my suggestion or not. I try to keep up before making new ones as otherwise you dig yourself in to a deep work pit and have a lot to try to comment on. I have goofed that way a lot but I still try my best to get back all the time. I know how I feel when my response is never replied to so others must also feel the owner did not even bother to read them.

yes thats exactly what i thought and also i feel why make a discussion if you dont care about what you want to know enough to go back and respond. thats why i dont over make them these days. theres so much id like to share but dont have time to go back to them, so i wont make those. you get even more responses then i do and i dont know how you keep up but you do i sure dont want to be one to make people think i dont care about what they respond so i catch up even if it takes me a while. another good reason for me not to make many

The only way we get paid when we don't type is if our referrals are typing. I have only one referral that has done any typing this month, and I won't make much if I don't start typing more myself. I do try to check in everyday and do something, just to stay in the habit. I also read some discussions just to keep up with what my friends are doing, even when I have nothing to add. I think the habit of coming here every day makes sure I don't stay away too long and lose what I have accumulated.

hi bagarad y es thats the only way and I gave up on referrals as all the new ones want is to make hundreds of dollars on line doing kothing themselves which young people is not going to happen. I also keep my hand in every day. lately I have been struggling with insomnia so trying to get some sleep in the mornings. that has cut my earnings down as I am not on here as much as I was before I have had these sleepless nights. I am so addicted I have to have some my lot every day but it is a good addiction.

Hey Granny, I think it's their personal opinion only that they think about what you said. They should bear in mind that only their activities being paid. The nice thing is that when you post a discussion you can interact more to all your friends who leave their comment. By continuing the thread it will give you more things to share with the posters of the comments. You activities will become more and more. The more active you are the more earnings you can get. Correct me if I am wrong granny.

hi monasharma if I can help newbies thats worth a little extra typing. I wish I knew who is spreading that falsehood that we get paid for getting quality responses as common sense should tell them that if they did not do the typing then they cannot earn on others work. A well established user here put that in his response to some discussion" you get many quality respoonses you will earn well" I commenttecd back that that was not true, mylot admins does not pay us for someone elses responses. those who typed get the earnings so if he wanted earnings on the responses he has to comment back as thats the only way you earn anything on your discussions.common sense should dictate that he who types earns, she who types earns but he does not earn for what she types.

Actually Hatley, That guy is NOT a well established user. He has been here for two years and in the past week has posted a number of discussions. Prior to that had not been active for 5 months. then there was another break and was slightly active 10 months ago and 11 months and then it kind of jumps to two years ago. He is like a newbie really. He is not estabished at all.

Hi sis and diana, I think I was thinking of both the young man with so many discussions it filled mybox and I had a time g etting to others whom were myfriends that I wanted t o s tay in touch with,but also an older user who was advising newbies to write quality discussions to get lost of guality respoonses that wo uld pay really well. He put this in his discussion and hes been a user for a while.I was surprised and responded to him that the people who gave responses to his discussions got the earnings,not him. So I started off talking about this myth that responses earn you big money and how it is not true.People who swallow that myth will make a lot of discussions, get responses, not make much then complain myh lots a scam and just quit.sadly some of the discussions were really interesting and I responded but after just three discussions I realized he or she never intended to return. So I remembered the user name and I will not respond any more to this person.

hi ravi I also have to come back at times as I run out of time bujt I do eventually always come back as I really appreciate 'the time and thought that wentg into the making of those responses. for me to not comment back would in my own eyes make me feel I was being really rude and also that I did not have much feelings for those who responded to me. after all once we make a discussion its up to us to keep it going into a real discussion. I know we all have other things to do so I just maintain that one just goes back when you can to catch up on the responses and comment back on any you have missed. I did have a few several times when I was gone three times when I was hospitalized first for fractured shoulder then bleeding diverticulitis and finally last February for a bad fall. but I did finally get caught up again. Now again I have a few to get back to and also to resolve but I will get to them all I promise everyone.

Absolutely right.The more we participate here the more we earn.We can never get paid for what others do.Others are paid for their labor,we are paid for ours.When we further a debate here,we have to add our comments to comments by others.It's so simple.One can easily understand it if one reads the FAQ before participating.Remember the famous adage,'you will reap what you sow.'The same thing applies here.

Hi hatley, I enjoyed reading above . I just thought new comers assume they went here because they will earned so much money because only for typing. Although they read FAQ's and guideline of mylot they did not fully understand the true meaning of it. They preferred to listen to their friends or the one who refer mylot to them that feeds then the wrong guidelines of mylot. My daughter Ann ask me how she will earn fast here. I just told her post a quality discussion from her interest,respond to discussions that interest you from your friends it is easy to add more friends so you can tract discussion from them that will goes to your e-mail and it is easy for me to do that, comment on discussions if you had something to add, and I also learn from mysdiana about this search engine we can have some rewards there, also the task if you feel to do some mylot task it can help too. That's my knowledge about how to have money on mylot and I don't know also why others can't understand how it goes. I'm also a little annoyed about the boy your talking to hehehe he loaded my email with 20 or more discussion per day. I don't know if he earn more than I am coz I only do discussion If I have something interest me to discuss. I love mylot aside from earning money I earn a lot of friends here.

I wanted to help newcomers see the advantages of learning the dos and do nots of making discussions. I really dislike it ehen my inbox is filled overflowing with one single persons discussions all made in one day, and it baffled me why he does not return to comment back to those who took the time to respond to his discussion,. could he also think he get paid for someone else's work?

Then we begin to have fun and enjoy being here. I am sure you will be credited as you write well.Like I said as you participate more it will all make sense and fall into place. also do not be afraid to ask any of us older ones here to explain something that does not seem clear to you. we all want to help as we were all newcomers ourselves and stumbled a bit until others did help us.

If a lie gets repeated often enough and loudly enough, by enough people, sadly it will always be believed. I have seen that type of belief about myLot and people complaining about myLot being "a scam" when that isn't in the case. Yet, they honestly believe that a third party would tell them the truth. A third party that is trying to drum up some quick referrals so they might be using some deception and some lies to gain your interest. Which is not a good way to get business, but that is an entirely different discussion all together. Yet some people will always believe this, no matter how many times this is said. Because there are a lot of people out there, to put this in the nicest way, are a bit light in the head and obviously not willing to actually do their own research, which really only amounts to reading the freaking FAQ. Then again, I think if you've been on the Internet for long enough, we've see many cases where a lot of headaches could have been avoided if someone had taken fifteen minutes or even less to actually see what the rules and regulations for a website was.

hi megawatt good reponse and it m ade me remember an instructor I really liked in junior college who kept t elling us that most students did not get poor grades because they did not know the answers but because they failed to follow the instructions]on the test papers. okay I was younger but still older than most students in my late thirties but I had studied the subject backwards and forwards . so I really flew through this test but failed to reread one important direction, please do not forget to turn exam over for the few questions on the back. okay I got up to my instructors desk then noticed the sentence after I had handed him my exam. there were questions on the back and i had not turned the damned thing over. He told me it was too late now. but later that day he met me on the campus grounds and told me that even missing the remaining two on the back I had already made an A. what a relief. its all in reading the guidelines and the FAQ's then making discussions and posting things. reading the information means you will be able to mylot without errors and have fun and enjoy being here too.
