I can't even get on anymore, it is a neat site and I enjoyed it, even if sometimes it was just pennies at least I could then get my paid to click. Well maybe it will all get fixed.
Unfortunately, I don't think it's broken. The website changed their paying policy (now to only for complete surveys and no partial credit). I think the company might have been losing too much money on the old way of paying. I've been relying on videos to qualify for PTC. Luckily they have been reliable lately.
I got a notice I had earned x number of cents and as of now (from this morning) it has not credited. This happened a few days ago and it showed up the next day.
I can see what you are saying happening. People have bragged in these forums how they get kicked out as fast as they can to earn random cents and end up making more than if they actually take the survey. If you are going to do that then at least keep your mouth shut! I would think if that were the case though it would be told to us. The policy still says if there is a $$ that you earn a penny for being kicked out. Or more with the TAP.
This is not a job. Although some people call it that. It is not an income or a means to support yourself. Heck, it really isn't even enough for extra spending money. The people behind the survey are doing research. They are going to pay the bare min. And the site that is the middle man between us and the ones paying for the survey are also making money. I would love to know how much money they actually make.
