...because we are hoping to gain from their work? Also Do people who are 3rd generation referrrals or further down the pyramid actuallly EARN LESS because they are paying the 25% of their effort to their referrers?

Yes, we gain from their work, but I don't think we actually get any of their earnings. We get an extra 25% based on what they earn, but that money is not actually deducted from what they earn. It is just a reward for attracting more members to the site. I would also say that if our referral gain from their referrals and so on, they are still earning extra from their referrals, and so our earnings increase also. I trust somebody will correct me if I am wrong.

I though anyone whos referred must pay 20% to whoever referred them .I feel better referring people and asking them to use my link since its a bonus from mylot and it will not cost the referred person anything .

i don't think they're being cheated, i was referred by someone i didn't know, but hey atleast i'm gettin paid, and are you sure ur info is correct? i thought we get paid an equivalent of 25% of our referrals, and not actually 25% of what they earn. So are you sure that people like me get paid less, because we've been referred?

I think we are not cheating anyone by reffering them to mylot.... Afterall it is for their good as they are also gonna earn some money.. Its like an incentive according to me just a method adopted by mylot to have more members on the site.... Your referrals dont earn less they would earn the same amount you would have made if your would have posted those discussions..... So just chill and have fun!!!! Cheers!!

NO I don't think you are cheating anyone by them using your referall link . You found the site first and they have the option of signing under you or signing up themselves . You will never profit that much by having them as referalls , a few cents here and there and what a nice way to be able to help someone out , even if it is only a little bit . It's not like it cost you anything extra to use their links .Or vice versa .
