Whenever I find out about a new site, I really try to break it down to its simplest elements so I can understand it well. So in my mind, MyLot is pretty much like Yahoo! Answers except you get paid for participating, which obviously is bonus incentive to join there!
MyLot is a questions and answers forum where people can discuss anything - politics, how to set up WiFi on their PSP, what fast food they enjoy most, and so on. Like I said earlier, its pretty much like Yahoo! answers. You can create topics or respond to others.
What you earn basically comes from how many people view and respond to your question, and also from the questions you reply to. Basically, from the money the site earns from advertising, they split it up amongst the topic creator and those who post so everyone gets a fraction of the earnings which really turns out to be pennies. The minimum amount required to receive your first payment is $10. So as you can guess, it'll probably take quite some time and effort to earn that much. Its slow earning but at the same time the site can be used to your advantage to share your opinion, seek help, or give advice or help someone else in need.
Since we're already members of Dooyoo, many of you may just find it hard to pry yourselves away from here and start an account at MyLot. Unless you really pour all your free time into MyLot, you won't see any profits.
Topics are divided by interest categories so you can easily find people who share your interests or topics where you actually know about. Adding friends allows you to see what new topics they've started so you can join in to support them.
So bottom line, MyLot requires too much time to make tiny amounts of money, but being rewarded for participation or inquiries makes it a more viable option than places like Yahoo! Answers. You can receive payments via PayPal so that's always a plus - you don't need to worry about giving any personal banking information or worry about them taking 2 months to send a check for a few dollars. MyLot is good, but you'll probably earn hundreds more in profits here on Dooyoo in the time it takes for you to earn $20 or so on MyLot.

I am a MyLot member and can identify with many of the comments made. I think it is true that you will earn fairly slowly but I do enjoy using it, probably due to having more time on my hands than normal due to being out of work.
