    I often see some subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) bias in these political surveys. The way they're constructed, for example, steering you to answer a certain way or even the actual wording of the questions. That's why even though I do surveys, I disregard the findings. Think by now we all know how misleading/wrong surveys, polls, etc. can be. (Edit to include something else I just thought of.) These sort of surveys also can be factually flawed. Recently had two similar surveys asking whether I would support or oppose certain legislation in my state. Problem was that two of the pieces of legislation had already been proposed, put on the ballot, voted on, passed and enacted...as much as three years ago! I pointed this out in both the first and second survey (in the survey comments section), but I begin to suspect that when you're asked for comments about a survey, they often are ignored, wasting my time and very rudimentary keyboard skills.

    Oh, it can be quite a ride. In texas some very contentious senate races lead to some very peculiar surveys about the candidates. Such as the Cruz/O'Rourke race. Like was this attack ad good, or was this one better? which attack ad is more believable? It was so outlandish, I made screen shots of the ads. If you change your political leanings from survey to survey the closer to the election, you will get to see the oppositions strategy.

    I'm guessing they are to "verify your humanity." The ones I've gotten never have any relevance to the actual survey topic. Or, maybe there are some open-ended text questions somewhere in the survey, and they want to see if you're going to give answers that are too short or nonsensical?

    GammiWoo, I’m so sorry to hear of your experience through One Opinion. I agree that they totally screwed you over. Why would they even say you rushed through a 2 minute survey in 3 minutes? Such crap. It seems you can be armed with all the proof, all the screenshots in the world, but these survey companies have absolutely no scruples and will not hesitate to screw people over left and right. It’s too bad there is really no recourse. I sympathize with you. At least you got the remaining balance of your account. Some survey companies wouldn’t even give you that I think. It’s too bad one cannot take these companies to small claims court. I know, wouldn’t be worth it for what you would have to pay and the time involved. But it’s a thought. Hang in there. This time of the year seems really bad with very few viable surveys out there. I’ve really struggled qualify, and have spent more time trying to get the same amount of money, like 2-3 extra hours a day. I’m going to get more involved with mystery shopping, and maybe try Instacart too. I’m growing quite tired of the shenanigans these survey companies pull on their survey takers. I find it absolutely appalling and disgusting.

    Grumpy, no way in hell I would give them that info. I think that is absolutely ridiculous. They basically are saying they will not help you unless you give them private info over the internet for a survey that probably is worth about a dollar or so. No way. I’d tell them to get bent.

    Yeah, I have seen some interesting stuff in political surveys lately. A lot of them have questions on how I feel about investigations, impeachment, what direction the country is going to, etc. I think things will continue to get more interesting, and more biased in the surveys as we get closer to the election.

    I used them for several years and a year ago, they made a slide to crapland. I stopped doing surveys in january and only did the daily polls, it took 10 months to make a payout. After that I started trying surveys again but only undertake surveys that have a single digit estimate time. otherwise I move to my next book marked panel.

    That’s a good question. When I’m on Point Club, I always put something in there. Since they review all their surveys, I don’t want to get screwed out of points. But if it’s another site, and just a partner that I’m not affiliated with I just type “I am not a bot”.

    I think it's high time we protest and go on strike with all survey companies,. We want a raise.when. We start a survey using our time, and our devises we should be paid 50 cents for each survey attempt and if the companies disqualify us they should be hold accountable to paying us members who work hard being a member. And I think we should be paid by the minute. 25 cents a minute. What do you say people, should we go on STRIKE. I believe we should..

    I'm having problems posting this morning. Seems to have a mind of it's own.

    Dawn, good to know about the game at the end. I didn't realize One Opinion deducted points. I can't even begin to think of how many surveys I've exited out here lately because they were just too stupid. Asking inane questions. etc...I'm getting better at it though. I find it's easier to exit they survey and lose a lousy DQ of 5 cents on OO than to waste time for half and hour and just get more and more frustrated at answering these questions and clicking on these tiny dots.

    Hi everyone. I wasn't sure where to put this thread, as it isn't technically about any survey site. I'm simply curious (okay nosy) about what you all do while taking surveys. For example, do you listen to music, watch TV, exercise, that kind of thing. Sometimes I do all three at once, LOL! Today, we have EAA going on in Oshkosh Wisconsin, about 10 minutes from where I live. So every day this week, I've been listening to the EAA frequencies on an app called Live ATC. Some very interesting stuff. Sometimes I stream radio stations, listen to the cops on a scanning app I have (I have about half a dozen scanning apps), or my ITunes playlist. Sometimes I'll have a baseball or football game on in the background, and sometimes I'll do leg lifts or the like while doing surveys. I have a difficult time sitting still for too long. Sometimes I'll grab a beer or have a glass of wine while doing surveys. It keeps things from getting too monotonous. Please post what you do. I'm always looking for ideas to make it more fun.

    Same thing here. I was getting between 5 and 10 SB for disqualification and now it is just max 5 SB for the day. Who knows what is going on

    What with a new election coming up where I live and all the BS going on in the government, been getting quite a few political surveys lately. Was curious what others felt about these, sometimes they end up feeling like some sort of ad for a particular person.

    It just keeps getting better. I clicked on the link in the email inviting me to a new survey. As usual that one was closed but another was offered. Clicked on that link led me to a screen that said I had been blocked. Went to the support page and got the screen shown in the screen cap. I clicked on the most recent reply and got the messages show in the second attached file. I have never been asked for this information. I am eager to hear how others here would feel being asked for this type of information.

    Can't say I've ever tried the expanded paid versions of YouTube, but I do like the regular one. Pretty amazing all the random stuff you can find there, I was watching one the other day with people going through the new Star Wars world at Disney which was fun, and around Halloween I watched one with folks going through the Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios. Kind of like getting to see the thing without being there.

    I am usually listening to music or watching tv. I take breaks frequently so it doesn't get too monotonous.

    I've been locked out of LifePoints for about a week and I finally received a rather bizarre email from them, as follows:- With very great regret we want to announce that you will no longer be able to access this account. But do not to worry and not focus on the problem, but on the solution we offer. As a one-time courtesy for being a valued member of our community, follow these steps to help us reinstate your original LifePoints. 1. Firstly, please go to lifepointspanel.com and complete the registration process using a NEW email address. 2. Once you have re-joined our community using a NEW email address, please respond to this ticket and let us know your new and old email address. We will need to know both to reinstate your original LifePoints and transfer your original membership LifePoints into your new membership. To me, it looks as if someone has screwed up big time at Lifepoints - the sentence that cracked me up was " But do not to worry and not focus on the problem, but on the solution we offer". That sounds like an apology without actually apologising... Has anyone else seen something similar?

    For those who remember, I posted several months ago that I was no longer getting surveys from LifePoints. I put in a help request to try to resolve the problem. It is now 5 months later and the issue is still not resolved. I can log in, but it says I have no surveys, and I cannot cash out. I have not received any survey emails since a few weeks after this problem started. I have sent several follow-ups to my service request. All I get now is an automated message weekly saying "we are almost done resolving your issue". As others have stated, I have been a member for a LONG time, going all the way back to GTM and My Survey.(like 10 years). I have never had a problem take this long to resolve. At this point all I want to do is cash out and drop LifePoints, but I'm about ready to give up hope even on that. So don't hold your breath that your issues will be resolved in a timely manner.

    Glad to see that I am not alone. I was also told that I must have accidentally unsubscribed and I did not. FIVE days ago I took advantage of their "one-time courtesy", opening up a new account using a new email address. I was assured that the old account would be transferred to the new account. BUT it is five days now and nothing has happened. Matter of fact when I log into my new account I get the following message: Error: PS_506: No surveys available at this time. We will notify you when a new survey is available. I was almost ready to cash out for a $50 GC and now I can't even find my points since they have not been transferred over. I am angry and upset and wonder what they are trying to pull. Of course it is now almost a week and I haven't been able to take ANY surveys, locked out of my old account and no surveys in my new account. SIGH HOPE they take care of this for all of us that have supposedly "accidentally unsubscribed". Tis the season to be jolly and I AM NOT! :(

    I like Netflix ok but damn, seems like there is really never anything on there i want to watch. I get it free through a friend's(next door neighbor's) account in exchange for letting her use my wifi. On a side note I've never tried Hulu. I have Roku and love it though. So many possibilities.
