Repeating questions survey, over and over and over
« on: October 14, 2015, 01:31:05 am »
Just seeing if anyone else has ever had this happen.  I did a 40 cent survey at the top of the list and it was going well until it repeatedly asked the same questions in a loop for 10 plus minutes.  What do you think of Fargo on a 1-5 scale then what do you think about Placeholder(I think this is a fake show) on a 1-5 scale.  It was numbered and the first time it asked about Fargo was about 60 and I finally gave up on question 134 which was a repeat.

This did not happen to me. But do you remember which survey it was.

It happened on the Opinion Central survey site.  I was thinking it made sense for a while to shake off anybody randomly clicking and not paying attention.  Who knows, I've been doing fine there otherwise.

That's strange. I've never experienced that.  But, I find a lot of surveys to be repetitious.  I suppose they have their reasons.

I have done this kind of surveys before, so aggravating

some surveys do repeat questions but not to that length... may have been a bug in the survey... you could send in a support ticket to them and see if that changes anything

Some surveys are very annoying and sometimes they do that or you get to the end and then tell you that you do not qualify, is just matter of luck I guess

I have taken a few surveys that have turned into marathons. It may start off as a 10 or 15 minute survey and when I look up its been 25 or 30 minutes.

Not sure all the timing is correct;  I've done a lot of surveys that were supposed  to be just really short but they turned into almost 30 minutes.  Very frustrating!  Haven't gotten into a looped one but have gotten several that throughout the process had to keep giving my age again and other qualifying questions.

Same. I went to about #230 on the same questions about "Placeholder."

That must have been frustrating.  After you've put in time and thought on a survey, it's always hard to quit.  You keep thinking that you HAVE to be coming to the end soon, but your "loop" questions sounded like a losing battle.  We all get glitchy surveys from time to time.  Next...

This happened to me before where I'm getting nowhere in the survey. This can be annoying.

I have had surveys do that after answering them for 20 minutes, get stuck on one question and reporting them on FC does not help.

Something similar happened to me on a different site. I kept answering the same three questions many times over, until I decided to give up on the survey.
