Strange survey incident today!
« on: April 13, 2019, 08:42:26 pm »
So this morning I was working on a survey on a different site, and it went from one survey to another to another, like they often do. After about 5 minutes or so, it DQed me and reverted back to a totally different site, of which I'm also a member of! I was like, wait a minute, I wasn't even on this site! I've never had that happen before! Unfortunately, neither one gave me anything for the DQ lol.  :)

That is not strange. It happens all the time. You are DQ and just shot in to another survey.  It is just one survey that does it. I have seen it many times.  I usually recognize it when it pops up and just x out. And no I don't get any DQ pennies. But not all sites do that.

I have had that happened to me before. Years ago I would take a few surveys at once through different sites and just have a few open tabs. WEll I quit doing that because it would redirect me back somewhere else and mess up the entire survey and crediting.

It doesn't have anything to do with multiple open tabs.  There is one site in particular that does that. It just shoots you in to one survey after another and you never get the DQ pennies. I recognize it when I see it so I just go ahead and X out to start with.  I have had it do that where it redirects you do their site and not to your panel site.  So you don't get anything but a head ache.

I must say that has never happened to me. Kind of strange. I often wonder about some of these sites

Yeah, I've seen some of the surveys here going through a mintvine one, I only know because I see it in the URL. But the one I was doing I started on Branded (Mintvine) and it eventually ended up on Earning Station. I mean it actually ended on the ES survey page where it says "Sorry, you didn't qualify". I've never had that happen before. Weird!

No, it's not that it shot through many different surveys, of course that happens all the time. It's just that usually when it's done, it takes you back to the original site you started out at. This one didn't!

I don't go through combined surveys if DQ'd from the first one. I close out after that because I'd rather get the 1 cent than be DQ'd from more than say 5 surveys and get nothing my my efforts and losing 5 cents for being DQ'd out of those 5. Sooner or later, the ones I didn't try will rotate as a single survey so I'm not losing anything.

i agree this can happen when you get disqualified on one site and are sent to another site.

Well that adds insult to injury. Not getting credit on either site. Ouch. The only explanation I could come up with is that you were logged in to both sites at the same time so the survey wasn't sure which site to send you back to. Then it probably thought you were trying to double dip the survey so it didn't count on either website. Let's hope that never happens again.
