Off-Topic / Re: Dell or Apple?
« on: Today at 02:02:36 pm »Message ID: 1309646
We switched to Apple computers a few years ago, and have been pleased with all we've had.  I do agree with dreamyxo, though.  I sometimes feel like I am being forced to buy the newest and latest versions because the old ones no longer are compatible with the latest developments.

I am retired from Market Research and used to screen respondents over the phone for paid studies.

You never tell a respondent why they do not qualify and or what the client is looking for. So if a respondent screened out, we always went down another question or two before telling them that they were over quota or did not meet the profile.

That's good to know - thanks

What's the reasoning behind that?  It looks like it would be more efficient and more ethical to let someone know as soon as he/she is screened out!

I, too, try only to attempt short surveys, but sometimes I get started in what is supposed to be a short survey, and it just keeps going and going.  Once I've invested a significant amount of time on a survey that looks like it has accepted me, I'm reluctant to quit in the middle.  In  my mind, the longer I go, the more likely I am to be close to the end.  It reminds me of that episode of "Friends" where Phoebe is put on hold, and she won't disconnect from the phone call because she is sure she will be answered soon.

I, too, have had pretty good luck with the survey invitations that come in my email. I just forget to try them.  When I see them, it's usually because I'm looking for my daily email that's worth $.02. Once I've clicked on that, I go to the PTC section, and THEN I start looking for surveys to earn my $.05 for the next day.  I usually never think to go back to my email to see if I have an invitation.

FusionCash / Do You Keep a Survey List?
« on: January 17, 2020, 12:08:52 pm »Message ID: 1309348
Do you keep a list of all the surveys you complete?  I am continually getting asked if I have participated in certain types of surveys within certain amounts of time. There's no way I can remember those details for completed surveys, and then, sometimes I answer many questions, but still the survey is not "completed." That throws me off when trying to recall the surveys I've completed. I didn't keep up with this info for years, but now I write down the date and subject matter of all the surveys that give me credit.  I can check my list and easily answer that participation question.

I do believe that the same offers can show up differently for different folks.  It's all about that targeting business.  However the thought about the survey having reached its quota is a good explanation of what's going on.  Either way,  I have not seen this offer on my page.

I think it's interesting that several of those types of political surveys have DQ'd me right away, after they saw my answer.  Could they be slanted toward a particular political view???

I haven't noticed much difference on my end.  Tap has been working great for me.  I got five quick DQ's in a row this morning. @jkhanson,  Janet, I'm sorry to hear that.  Is Tap Research not working for you?

Yes, that's very strange.  You never know what's going to pop up when taking surveys! Clearly a glitch somewhere!

I had one that went for the exact time as you, and it paid me one cent.

bshee58, did you complete the survey for the amount of time stated or was that for a DQ? Either way, that's better than $0.00!!!

I'm always intrigued when someone reports that a task is easy.  It reminds me that I need to keep browsing tasks to find those hidden gems.  They are there, but sometimes hard to discover.  Most tasks that I've tried are more trouble than they are worth!

I guess you are the eternal optimist!  I don't remember seeing Review Robin surveys, but then, I usually don't pay attention to the survey provider.  I hope that with one of these attempts, you will be pleasantly surprised and that your optimism will pay off!

Congratulations upon getting to the end of one of these quizzes with 100%!  I try periodically, but usually end up wondering why I put myself through the challenge.  My last attempt left me with a bad taste in my mouth.  It was a quiz on synonyms, and I figured I could look up the answers if I didn't already know the right word.  I was surprised that I had only 95% at the end, but since I had the minutes to spare, I decided to try for a second time.  The questions were not all the same on the second attempt, but I did have a question from the first quiz that I looked up and realized where I had made my mistake.  Also a couple of times, I got the same question asked twice. I was very confident that I would have 100% on the second try, but it was only 35%.  It will be a while before I try one of those again.

I was looking through my list of Tap Research surveys a few minutes ago and was surprised to see a survey worth $0.00!  That was a first for me, and it was 35 minutes long!!  Would YOU take this survey???

35 mins
