What it is: A discussion forum

How it pays:
You get paid for responding to topics and posting pictures. You also get paid when people respond to discussions you start, but only when you have at least 10 responses.

You also earn 25% of what your referrals earn.

Payment options: paypal or moneybookers.

Minimum payout is 10 dollars. Cut off is at the end of the month. If you reach minimum payment by cutoff, you'll receive payment on or before the 15th of the following month.

And yet, I've gotten paid!


MyLot is a growing discussion forum which claims a membership of about 112,637 at the last count. It tries to encourage quality discussions by rewarding longer and more meaningful responses. Also, longer topic starters who get more than 10 responses get rewarded. You also get paid for posting pictures.

The payment algorithm is not very clearcut, but generally, they give out 1-3 cents per response. Extra income seems to be added when your response gets awarded as "best response". Pictures also earn when others click on them to take a look.

There's a rating system available, so the reputation of the person is dependent upon how the other mylot people see his responses. Also, the other mylot members may report another member who's posts they find too offensive. Members get to see their rating when they reach at least 100 posts.

I found the discussions enjoyable. It's a real online community with a lot of interaction among its members. Trying to earn is quite tedious if you don't have referrals, but not impossible.

It is important to read the rules and follow them, because "naughty" members MAY get banned if they are not too careful.
