I did the survey for the pizza community on another site and was credited for it. I get at least one email a day from the pizza community reminding me to take the survey when I eat pizza. I'm beginning to feel like I need to eat pizza nonstop just to comply with this community. lol
I'm sorry you received such a reply, paulann1212. That last line is what stings the most in that reply, IMO. The reply most definitely could have been worded in a much more respectful manner.
Like moomoofarm, I am not a fan of Gongos. There are two online communities that I became part of due to surveys here on FC and both of them use Gongos. One of the communities, everything works wonderfully and I've never had a problem. The other, as long as they do the surveys that are posted in the forum that require a poll type answer and then a posted answer to further explain why you made the choices you did in the poll things work great. But when they put the Gongos surveys up I have trouble every time. I get 50-75% of the way through them and they tell me they are over quota or that I don't meet the demographic. I've had a few of them let me get all the way to the end and then tell me they are over quota. When I said something about how I am constantly disqualified after taking most/all of the surveys on the community forum (others were complaining, too), I received a private email from the woman who moderates the forum telling me I was not allowed to say anything on the forum that might in any way discourage any other members from participating or expressing their opinions and that I should have known better than to do that in the first place. I'm no longer a member of that community.
When I took the surveys here to get into those communities, I had to take the survey here and then they sent me an email where I had to click on a link and create my community profile before I was credited on FC for the surveys. I did that for both but one credited and the other didn't. When I emailed FC about it I was told the problem was because I took the survey in Chrome and clicked on the email in Firefox. Maybe so but I found it odd that one credited and the other didn't and I followed the same procedure for both.
I guess I just wasn't "owed" anything.
