Do you think that there is an exploitation of mylot members? Work is hard but reward is negligible or you can say nothing.One is getting hardly one or half an dollar after sincere devotion of 5 or 6 hours.Is it justified at least for computer literate? One can not even get the reimbursement of internet charges in such earning. In India internet charges for the broadband is at least Rs 1000/- per month.I am an Engineer and getting at least 20 dollor daily with many other facilities and comfort and i have to devote only simple 8 hour a day. Rate calculation of mylot discusion is very very low. Who will dare to stay with it for long time? I want to quit from it.Any suggestion please.Please come forward and take the matter with mylot appropriate authority otherwise we shall be poorer and poorer.Help me out.I am too much frustated!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mylot is intended to be a discussions, sharing our ideas, thoughts, beliefs, and opinions. This is a tool to communicate and interact with others cultures. If you're here for money, surely you will get disappointed. Try to treat this as a hobby like chatting. Enter here only if you feel you have a free time or you get bored over your daily routine. I'm telling you buddy you can't earn here much, don't expect something that from the start is not really the aim of this site.

abednego is right. im here in mylot just for the fun of interacting with different people. i do not equate my excitement if somebody responds to my discussion/topic into dollars. im here just for the fun of it, to learn, to experience other cultures and mainly to interact with newly acquired friends. just relax and enjoy my friend

I second to that. Think of mylot as a way of making friends, and learning new things. I'm just new here but I didn't join for the money(don't even know how I'll get "the money", poor me!lol), there are other ways to earn that. I've been having fun joining the discussions. In my opinion, it's way better than frien***er and mys**ce. I can share my own ideas to whomever would appreciate it, and get ideas from people all over the world.

Well mylot wasn't made to be a career for people. It's just to supplement your income. If you are looking to make a large amount of money, you might have to go somewhere else because it's not possible here.

Right, but there should be a proper way to supplement the income.It should be as per one's skill and work.Everybody has got right to get reward as per their work.But it is not here at all.I do not want to make it as a career. Do you think that it is properly supplementing your income in a proper way as per your devotion.Are you getting the reimbursement of your computer and internet charges leaving your contribution charges? Are you satisfied? If yes okay and pl continue.........

You're right. I don't think we are getting rewarded probably the amount we deserve but that's the drawback to being a member here. I'm okay with it and that's why I'll still post here if it is for such little pay.

MyLot in my opinion is sort of like a piggy bank. Every day you post you might get twenty cents or so and obviously that is not much. But over time, it does add up, just like putting a few cents in a piggy bank every day adds up over time and before you know it you've somehow got a hundred bucks! And who is going to turn that down?? Nobody! Really mylot doesn't pay much and no one should rely on this for a means of living or even for a little extra money, but it takes very little time to do and is fun as well and after a few months you'll see that your few cents every day have turned into something more and you will be glad you ever joined, trust me!

When I joined mylot, it was already clear to me that I can not get a lot of money here. But since I already started joining in discussions I found it hard to leave. I still keep an open mind just in case some sites will offer more but if there's not much difference, I would rather stay here, it's fun. I understand your frustration, have you tried surfing the net for other options? You might find one. Good luck.

I have tried a lot surfing the net for a year or more but i could not get anything.By the time i got eligible for some payment,the organising body was locked/ closed for ever because of some court cases. I had a bad experience of the same.Honestly speaking i have no faith on surfing the net.How much you are getting reimbursed per hour for quality discusion by mylot? Can you share me? If you can pl, if it is more than a dollor per hour, please share the knowhow technique.I will be too much obliged.

Some people claim they can make $5 a day posting discussions and uploading photos. The maximum I get is a little over a $2 without uploading photos and no referrals. With referrals you get a lot more. 25% equivalent of their earning. Maybe if I work hard enough I can make $5, that's realistic enough.

i agree with you.for me its is like chatting.i don't really think one can earn here without big numbers of active referrals.i am here to make some money so that i can invest in some other paying site like auto surf or forex.try to increase your star rating..it increases our earning. rather than starting bunch of new discussion ,try to make posts.i make new discussion twice a week and daily i make 40-45 post (all 3-4 line post)for this i get paid around $1-1.15 a day. don't make all posts in one interest.try to make post in as much interest as you can. make some friend who can help you by posting in your discussion n you do the same favour to him/her.mark some best response ..this will also help in your earning.

A + for you as well few... this is a good tip you give, and I agree with the referral. Your idea of gaining enough to invest in other paying sites, is great. Good luck!

Yes, I do agree with you that myLot didn't pay much while probably we put lots of effort (time, think to answer discussions, etc). I got bored already, but I am happy to see the digits I earned from myLot. (not that much, but it's better than nothing). And if I'm in the myLot position, I would probably do the same like what myLot is doing right now. After all, I am still at myLot, anyway. Don't get frustrated Brijendra. Cheer up. MyLot never promise you to get rich, but sure you could earn money from myLot. As simple as that. Try to make friends here at least, or go for the money, but don't put your hope to high. Enjoy what you are doing, don't let anything work you up. Again, let's have fun while getting that bucks.

I also agree you cannot make a career with mylot. Mylot provides additional income for the time spend here. One cannot spend 5 to 6 hours in the internet or mylot for making money. If you are looking for some pocket money you can earn from mylot. Also, one can get lots of information and other's opinion from mylot. I am also from India. I think there are few sites that actually pays like mylot and moneycosmos. There are lots of scams in the net, which will consume money and time. Something is better than nothing especially if one is spending 1-2 hours a day.

MyLot to me seems more like a place to share your opinions and advice for others, the payments are a great incentive to keep people coming back and to share good ideas and knowledge, but it's not going to pay enough to make a living from. Every little bit helps.

Mylots not meant to be a career for people.Its supposed to be something you do in your freetime. Like a hobby on the side to earn a little bit of cash. I think its a great idea.

I agree with you.It is a platform of discusion only.Any payment there of is bonus.Best of luck.

I'm going to stick with it. I too started slowly but if you build referrals behind you, you receive in addition, 25% of their earnings on top of your own. Please try this and any other way you can to build up your earnings before you quit. Mylot really is a lot of fun... maybe if you don't regard it as work, and make friends and enjoy being here, you will increase your earnings without really trying. Good luck... please don't quit yet.

Well, first of all, you aren't under a contract from mylot..you can leave anytime you wish. They aren't jipping us or cheating us out on any money. They are GIVING us money for doing something that most of us did on other websites for free. If you think it's unfair, don't stay. It's not like mylot forces you to make a certain number of posts per day. Like another response said, if you came here to make a living, you are out of luck. This is simply for fun and a few extra dollars for our time. I'm sorry that you don't make a lot because of your internet charges, but that isn't Mylot's fault. They didn't agree to pay for your charges and allow you to earn a sufficient salary. They simply said that they would pay you for posting. They never agreed to a certain amount, nor did they force you to come here and write. If you don't like it, then just leave. No one is stopping you.

Mate this is not career, it's just that if you love it then you are using it, and added advantage is that you earn some money. That's it nothing much than that. myLot never promised any money. It just says we will pay for your postings that's it. And they are paying for it, maybe only in pennies, but they are.

You're new here, yet, Naim. Things will get better as long as you persevere and post quality discussions which draw replies, and quality responses. Stick in there... I started slowly, but soon picked up the best ways to earn. Maybe you too should try some active referrals? Good luck.

I've only been on mylot for a couple of days, but am already earning a fair amount. Mylot is designed to be a community where people can share ideas, get other people's opinions and make friends. The money is just a pleasant side effect.

I would also support your view. Coz frm Mylot we can not only earn but also enrich our selves in different perspectives..

Why do people that sign up to mylot think that this is a JOB! This is not a job, it is a discussion forum that mylot has gracefully decided to compensate its members for, at no time has anyone here signed a contract stating that you were an employee of mylot.....this is a real problem, people are thinking that they are working for mylot.....news flash....you are not mylots employee...this is a free service that they just happened to pay us for. To anyone that is thinking that they can make a living at doing this....you cannot. If you signed up with the fact that this was an online job then you really need to sit down and do a reality check. Brijendra if you wish to quit, just log out and forget that mylot ever existed....

MyLot is mostly for friendships and conversation. If you want more money, I sadly don't think it will work on this site. I have worked hours like you and will get only $2. if I am lucky. Some days more or less. But never enough for the time involved. But, don't get fustrated and don't quit. Do it in your spare time and enjoy your friends, and they enjoy you. Blessings, M&M

Hey Man.. I feel you shouldn't take myLot as your main income source.. Take it as your alternate income source.. Then you'll be satisfied with it.. This is my point of view.. Use your own brain!

first dont depend on this earnings.This is a palce where you interact with people,discuss your thoughts with your friends,get suggestions.Mylot pays to encourage you to particiapte and increase the popularity of thier web.So you cant expect too much.But if you really wanted to do it professionally, you have to work as a marketing manager, tracing your referral to reply to your discussions,ask your refereals to post more discussions and earn from the discussions.The more your referral earn the more you get. If you have 100 referals and each earns $1 a day,thats $100 and you get $25 as your part.there by you make a good money through this MYLOT...........

whatever negative you got from the other members, you already got paid for your discussions and replies, and you have earned them. if they give you negative, you won't pay for it, but if you post a good discussion, you still get paid and those who didn't reply to your post didn't get paid, so why bother what they say when you know and have already let known to others that you had a good intention of helping them but they mistook it as if you were trying to slow them down. although it's still up to them if they will believe what you tell them to do, like they won't jump a bridge if you tell them to, they would still do it if they want to.
