The Beginning Of The End

So myLot has announced it will be soon launching it's new and improved website... "New and improved" as in they're no longer going to pay anyone anymore like they've done since the beginning! I guarantee, at least half the people that are members here are here to make a few lousy pennies a day......so they will have no interest in this site anymore......and gradually myLot is going to lose all the people that click on the overabundance of ads and bring revenue to this site......not to mention they are now going to allow affiliate links so members can promote their more than likely scam sites which is only going to drive more and more people away. Quote from admin: "Honestly, if you need to make ten bucks a month, there are plenty of other ways to do that online" You want to know what else there's plenty of online? Sites that you can hang out at that don't pay you that are WAAAAAAAAY better than myLot........and most of those sites you can write about whatever you want without worrying about having your stuff deleted. Anyways. sounds like myLot is just going to be another ho-hum cookie cutter website with no real incentive for anyone to actually be here. HOLD ON FACEBOOK! I'M ALMOST DONE HERE......THEN WE CAN PLAY AND HAVE FUN ALL WE WANT! Bye bye myLot........it was nice knowing you..........but you're no longer unique.

"New and improved" - right. They have/had something good - and now they're flushing it all down the toilet. Now I'm going to concentrate on getting those lousy pennies to get that last payout - argh!

I tallied up the payments I've gotten from Mylot over the years & it comes to $67 & change. It was a little bit of incentive to post on here instead of just ranting on FB ( though I admit I occasionally copied it there ). If mylot is just going to be another cheap FB knock off what's the incentive to keep us from simply moving there? It wouldn't be hard to post a FB name so your friends on here could find you. BTW, I use the same name for both.

Well well. The alert lured the bear out of his cave. I will hang around and see who stays and then decide. Even though I didn't need the lousy ten bucks, I had fun looking at my numbers. Stupid myLot, tearing my heart out like that...

Well, it was a great quote from admin. They are right. There are a lot of other sites out there that reward their members in some fashion... and that is where most of us will be spending our free time now that myLot has stripped away the incentive for hanging out here.

YOU are so right...but I feel like I am walking away from a demolition...all the years of contact, enjoying, learning...just stripped away! I will even MISS your valued input...such a LOSS! You take care, and know your comments have been enjoyed, muchly, over the years!

I will post the lyrics of a song titled "the virgin child makes her wish without saying anything" (I am not kidding, that is the title of the song, Believe it or not , such song exists. ) Despair, The End of the World I Hear The Rising Phoenix In My Dream. And The Virgin Child Made A Wish Upon a Star, That Night Her Mother Talks no More. Keep A Hold The End of the Dream A Shining Fish Splashes in a Stream And The Virgin Child Loses Her Heart and Soul That Night Her Mother's Eyes See no More. When the Wind Blows, a Virgin Child Comes Sing A Song. Such a Pretty Melody Never Heard Before. No More Lullabies. The Virgin just as the Night. ----- I can see some people here feels the same way as the symbolism of that song's lyrics. Some people may go to gather or to some other place.

Yeah, there's a lot of competition for non-paying social answer sites.

My sister told me about another opportunity for on-line earning. I failed their on-line writing test. How silly they are because I get on wonderfully with the writing on My Lot. It was a boring 500 word piece of writing about a calorie counter. I was only allowed 20 minutes. I wonder what My Lot means about there being plenty of ways to earn 10 dollars a month on-line. Really? There probably isn't one as enjoyable as My Lot with my friends on it. I am so worried about friends disappearing on My Lot.

I think most of us old timers will still be around.....I haven't reached cash out in like 2 years......so it's not like I'm here for the money or anything.

Yeah they are really losing a valuable position in the online community. Being unique was their one claim to fame and they have given that up.

New and improved for them. Not for us. Sure funny the added all the adds to site last week. And many have reported no search rewards in a week. Would have been nice to tell us that as well. Seems they care alot about us. NOT !!!

Mylot will be making changes, looks like the only ones that are excited, about this new site is Mylot them selves, and I hope that will enjoy their new sites, what good is this site going to be if you can't earn from it, any more who is going to want to come here everyday just to do nothing, that they are not earning money from, I know I wouldn't.

Whenever I tried earning something, something happened and I earns nothing. At least I already reached $5, so I think i will get that. I just completed 30 day here and got the news. That's so sad
