i have seen the difference between getting best responses and not getting best responses...yesterday i had no best responses so my earnings were a dollar less than what i would have earned with a few best responses..can you see the difference with your eranings because of this?

i used to think that by getting best responses i can improve my earnings. but i have experimented on this yanjiaren. there was this day when i got 3 best responses but guess what my earnings was very low just near 40cents compared to other days when i have no best responses. i don't think at all that best responses help us earn more. it just rewards us though for giving a good answer.

I have wondered this too... I think getting best responses helps your star rating though... right? happy posting :)

I didn't know this.I can be at mylot even more than week without i look to my best responses.Someone told me yesterday that rated me as best response so at morning I went to see.Now if the things are as you say and if you say certainly are I must thank you as I see you gave me some best responses yesterday.

I don't really keep track of how many best responses I get so I haven't really noticed a difference in my earnings. I know that if I do less then I seem to get more money per each answer and I'm not sure if that is because I got more best responses within those or not.

I don't really keep track but now that you mention it...There were quite a lot of gremlins in the works yesterday,my side at least, and then I normally wait a while before rating just to be fair

i don't realy know i don't get that many best responses anyway and i can't seem to earn more than 26 cents a day in the last 2 months... =| i don't know what i'm doing wrong, i just can't seem to earn a bit more. I'm only at 5.65$ for now and my last payout was in december, but i have to admit i didn't work in january that much, but still, my earnings are bad.

That's really strange - I've never noticed a difference in my earnings at all because of no best responses, or tons of them all in one day. I've heard at least one other person on here that gets lots of best response awards say that it doesn't seem to affect his earnings, either. maybe it was something else that you did, or maybe I'm mistaken, lol! I sure don't know. I haven't had time to check yet to see if I got any best responses yesterday, but I did earn almost exactly what I thought I would for what little i got done yesterday - so I'm happy, either way! ^_^ I'm really sorry that you earned a dollar less than usual :(

yanji, I asked mylotstaff about ratings yerterday and I got a reply too. here is what they have to say: Dear mylot staff I would like to know how do we earn our ratings here. Is it by answering more discussionms or is it by answering more quality responses or is it a combination of both. Mine is ataying 86/100 for past two months now, I would like to increase it by working harder, can you help me out and so many others by issuing an alert perhaps. please guide Thankyou so much mansha respond to this message 1. myLot_ContactUs (0) 14 hours ago The more detailed your discussions and responses are the better quality rating you will receive along with the number of discussions/responses you have. Keep up the good work and thank you for being such a valued member of myLot. Thanks, myLot

Thank you, mansha, for this interesting information. It explained why I got a bit more one day even though I did not do much. Quality posts are what myLot wants us members to post. I certainly am guilty of 'low' quality posts. Sometimes I want to comfort my friends or participate in their humorous posts. And thanks, yan, for posting this discussion. Glad to meet you.

I do not have any best responses. So, I have yet to see the difference in my earnings.

Best responses really do make a difference. I've noticed that myself - I haven't been getting as many lately myself, and my earnings are significantly less. I never really realized just how much they added to daily earnings. Though it makes sense, as quality is what's really stressed here.

I have not noticed any changes in my earnings because of best responses. Some people say it affects the earnings and lots of people don't agree with that. Anyway the system of Mylot earning is very difficult to understand.

I don't get a best response every day just every once in a while. I wish I would though, it would boost my moral a bit.

I'm sorry you earned less yesterday. I still feel that best responses earn you more, but also that being completely involved here at mylot plays a big role also. I did get a couple of best responses yesterday, thank you for that, and posted quite a few quality responses I got about what I expected, but I haven't been fully participating with the starting of discussions, and uploading pics. I also rate all the discussions that I visit along with rating pics when they are in the discussions. So am checking my theory out again today. LOL I have started 3 discussions today that's the most since I started. :) I also uploaded a pic in one. So we will see what happens tomorrow. :)
