Yeah I feel your pain.  Happened on this site yesterday to me.  If I complete the survey obviously I qualified.  They just do not want to pay you.

It's been  hard  but part of my problem is  can't be on the computer for long  periods of time.   because of my volunteer work and hubby being on it so much. Used to get a lot of surveys but they haven slim  the last 2months. But will be able to cash out this month.  But do have a gripe about paid to post. Have not been paid  since July 2018 and  have submitted  every  month. Maybe some day.  will send another support  ticket again   about the first week or so if not  paid.

That seems odd.  Are you submitting the form to be paid?  It doesn't just happen automatically.  You should then get an email from FC saying they received your thing asking to be paid for the forum posts.  That seems odd.

As for support tickets. I am not sure how much use that is. I submitted one the first of the month and have not ever heard from them.  By the time they respond it probably won't matter lol. 

It seems odd you have not been paid for 6 months and are doing everything correctly.

-Are you doing 30 posts for month?
-And are the posts more than just a couple words?
-Do you fill out the form to get paid for your posts?
-Do you alter or delete any posts that you submitted?
-Are you sure you actually get it submitted?  (You should see at the bottom of the pg which months you did)
It should say at the bottom of that page waiting for approval and then if it is or if it is denied.  If it is denied I would want to know why or what I was doing wrong.

I can't think of any other issues that would cause you to not get paid.

I hear ya. I got blocked from a different site twice in one week for "speeding", even though I slowed down after the first time. So I after the second time, I slowed WAAAAYYY down. Then I got booted mid-survey because I was going too slow and it "timed out". I can't win. It's hard enough just to find a survey that I can actually finish. How long do I need to ponder about how old I am or what state I live in?  ::)

I remember the days when FC had so many videos that making the mandatory 5 cents was effortless. Now it takes me sometimes 3 days to make it.

I've felt the same way recently. It seems like I cannot qualify for anything and it takes longer to disqualify me than the actual 'timing' of the survey.

I am at a point that I don't spend too much time trying to do surveys on this site because I never seem to qualify. I do get a few on other sites.

I do not qualify for 99 percent of the surveys. I just let the pennies add up. At least I do get 1 cent for trying. However I do get tired of trying.

lol.  I have had that happen. Some questions you can move thru pretty quickly.  Like age, race, state, all that.  Doesn't mean you won't read each word SLOWLY on the questions that matter.  And as many spelling and grammar and other foolish mistakes as they make in writing the survey they don't need to get too cocky about us not spending enough time reading the survey.

Then how do you make money? Other than the forum posting $3 and the 2 cents emails?  If I didn't do surveys I would never cash out.  And if I ever have to spend 3 months trying to get enough to cash out I will be done.  Move on to other sites that pay more.  I have 2 others I do that pay about 3 times what this one does.

I hate when you go through a survey, even half way then all of a sudden you don't qualify.  You waste all that time and (if done here) you only get a penny.  I think if you get at least half way or to the end and don't qualify you should get at least half the amount they were offering if you qualified.  Here it's like anyone over 35 is only qualified to go food shopping.  Those are the only survey's I seem to qualify for.  I don't know why they make you fill out a profile which they claim will connect you to surveys better suited to you when 9 out of every 10 you don't qualify for.  Sometimes after I do my 5cents for the PTC I only them if I have time to make a cent quota for myself because I know I won't qualify.  But I think we should be compensated for time spent because that is frustrating.
