    The problem is they will allow you to enter the survey if the respondent quota is not met yet. However, if other respondents complete the survey before you do and the quota fills up, you will get a "quota filled" error and they will reject your response no matter how far you have progressed into the survey. It's one of my pet peeves about survey panels. This is why I prefer panels that give you points for DQs. Also it's the reason why I don't do surveys longer than 30 minutes. The probability of the quota being filled while you are doing a long survey goes up, so I prefer not to waste that much time attempting a survey only to be rejected by a quota fill right at the end of wasting 30+ minutes.

    I wasn't sure what they were doing when this happened. Usually I just get dq'd or get an error at the end of the survey. But I have gotten the changing the topic survey a few times.

    I, too, have gotten this request from a few different survey sites. I didn't complete it since it would have involved too much work to get the information. But after reading it is a good thing I didn't. They might have access to my viewing history and there is enough spying without adding to it willingly.

    Yep, I've variations on that, and baffles me why the survey expects to have any opinion about someone you mention you've never heard of before. Sure, I can rate if I find someone attractive just based on a picture, but beyond that how would I know if they are trustworthy, funny, successful and so forth?

    Has anyone else noticed this trend? You finish a survey about a product or service, then it says something like "changing topics" and starts a whole new set of questions about a completely different product. The last time it happened it was about the local electric utility and my opinion of their customer service. After a few minutes they switched to questions about Dell computers. No, it did not DQ me from the first one and start me on another, it was all one survey and I did get the promised reward. This has happened before and seems to be happening more lately. Like they think they are paying so much that they need to get 2 surveys into 1.

    I read the forums and it helps with what is happening in the survey world.

    I still do them. Usually it says 'You have already done this survey" if a repeat.

    I've been completing surveys on this panel for a couple of years and after getting through the distressingly long time to make the first payout threshold, it has been improving regularly and payout intervals shortening. This panel yield has improved significantly over time. PaidViewpoint is also the only panel that sends feedback that their client found my comments useful. Meaning that there are real people behind this panel. I also like that the survey opportunities presented are their own and not SSI/Cint/Toluna/Your Surveys router rehashes. PV surveys also do well on handhelds. Perhaps the only detractors are that the survey opportunities fill up quickly and you don't get many email notices of open surveys. I bookmark this panel and check at least several times a day.

    I think humor is the best medicine in the frustrating game of survey taking. For example, you gotta love the ones that are like your mother and say... "Do you triple-pinky-promise to fill out our survey thoughtfully and honestly?...because we worked really hard to put together this survey just for you, and it's really, really important that we get honest, thoughtful answers....so please do the right thing and do the very best you can on our survey. God is watching you!..." So you spend 20 minutes filling out the survey the very best you can, fearing that anything less will lead to sleepless nights of worrying whether you did right by those surveys which love you just for you, and who always bought you ice cream to cheer you up when you pet goldfish died. Then..."Oh, yeah. Never mind. You don't qualify for this one for reasons we won't tell you....See ya!"

    I had one earlier today that must have changed topics at least five times. And, of course, none of the topics were even remotely related to one another.

    Any one else get a bit annoyed with surveys that want you to type in every type of some product or company you've heard of, when they then just show a list of them to pick from? I mean what's the point? I've actually got into the habit of writing in 'why bother asking when the survey is going to show a list?', and still end up being able to complete them.

    I think I've had a few of these. But I never pay attention to any ads anywhere I'm browsing, even if it's a survey like this where I expect they'll ask me about the ads. Makes it a bit tough to answer the questions.

    Quickrewards, and I didn't understand at the time that it could take 45 minutes worth of qualifying questions to get to the actual survey. Boy was I miffed.

    The BBB complaint worked. They reopened my account and I was able to cash out my survey money.

    I haven't seen that one for sure. They don't need that info, and I have to take my box in every so often because it fails, so it wouldn't do them much good to have that number.

    I did a market research thing last year, where they gave me a webcam to participate in the study. Somebody was coming out with a new prescription for dry eyes, and they asked for my opinion on the information that came with the prescription. They paid me $100.

    Yep, some of the places are ridiculous. I think we have all been through it.

    See cint - run.Wont touch and would advise people not to do them.I was surprised PI -opinion sold out to them.I feel like they should have asked us if we want to be a member of the new panel.Them perpetrating themselves as pi-opinion is shady and I don't like it. If a company is not upfront and honest about who they are and what intentions are then I will not do business with them.I know it's just a theory but come on ,who of us cant read between the lines by now?

    I would just delete them. Some times hitting unsubscribe will actually get you more Spam because it shows a good email address.

    How many millionaires are sitting in front of their computers filling out a survey worth maybe 50 cents? Ridiculous.

    I think it's just a game on their part to encourage truthful answers and make you think that whatever you put is acceptable when in fact you will get DQd if some answer is not what they are looking for. Older I get the more cynical I get:)

    Another annoying part of this captcha screening is going through it once when you first click on a survey link, being redirected to another survey platform, and then being asked to do it all over again for that one.
