Evil Survey!!!!
« on: August 29, 2017, 09:38:29 am »
I am so mad at the evil survey I just tried to do on Swagbucks! It took nearly an hour, with no signs of ending, then one page messed up, and wouldn't give me any check boxes, and of course wouldn't let me advance to the next screen until I provided an answer. I reloaded the page several times, and the evil thing still wouldn't load properly! Now there's an hour wasted, without even a disqualification bonus!

Sorry, I've had that happen too, it bites. You're taking long surveys at your own risk on most of these places unfortunately so I tend to only gamble on short ones.

Ugh, I stopped the Gold Surveys. Peanut Labs are so much better, but still frustrating. Surveys are a waste of time, anyway.

Yeah, those do happen. Time wasted, and you want to hit the wall or something.

It is a chance you take everytime you take a survey.

I like surveys with low times for that reason, especially if you get a penny or two for rejections.

I like surveys myself. Lately i've been qualifying for more surveys then I get disqualified for. There is a trick to these things and once you figure it out you'll make more money with surveys. Patience is the key.

I quit Swagbucks last year because those who were running the site came up with new ideas that didn't do me any good, and the site started to crash so frequently.

Swag has become a much more time consuming site then it was almost 3 years ago when I started it.  I am still making money there so I will continue for the time being.  However, if it becomes any more difficult and time consuming than it already is, I will probably leave it like you did.  Pity when they quit caring about those who actively participate and want to line their own pockets!!!

There seems to be so much talk about Swag these days.  I see so many ads and recommendations that I was thinking about joining.  It almost sounds like the server can't handle the load of members if it crashes.  If the site is crashing and if it has become so time consuming, maybe I should re-think the idea of adding Swag to my arsenal.

Sometimes when that happens you can hit the enter tab button and the enter button and it will magically find the "proceed to next page" button.  I have had that happen.

I never take surveys that long.  I try to stay under 30 minutes.

I quit Swagbugs long time ago because of the time consuming for nothing.
