Surveys play with your nerves !

I nearly smashed my keyboard to smithereens ! Already went through 3 keyboards in the past years !

I rather be told that I do not qualify for a survey right away or after answering a few questions.

Today is a LOUSY DAY in the sense that I get many survey that defy the logic !!!

Survey 1, click, get a page saying the survey is about general topics, let's get to know me, I answer a few questions I am told Great, I am the right person and qualify for a survey, click NEXT button to continue, clicked next and then a page screenout. Nearly sectioned my keyboard in half........ It's hard enough to get ANYTHING around here or anywhere, that when you finally find something your hopes goes up and adrenaline rush, only to be screened out.

Survey 2: We are doing a survey on topic X, have you purchased topic X in the past 12 months ? YES, great, let's ask you some questions for 15 minutes, adrenaline goes up, hopes goes up, click to continue, BOOM, "You did not qualify for this survey"

Survey 3: A consumer survey on clothing, qualified, survey starts, GREAT, this one works, finally, hope goes up up up, at 80%, GREAT, 90% great 99% FINALLY did it, finish line, 100% thank you so much for your time you have completed survey your answers were recorded...... Then redirect screenout to Quota met page.

Survey 4: We are doing a survey across Canada about people's perception on vaccination. I am asked qualification questions, I qualify, then first question of survey starts, in which country do you live in ? Obviously I answer Canada,
click NEXT...... Redirect screenout - I am FED UP of this crap ! How can I disqualify for answering Canada when the survey says it is about CANADIANS opinion on Vaccination, this is RIDICULOUS!

It is now a game of You qualify, OOPS you don't really qualify, answer my survey, OOPS we have enough respondents, take a new survey, OOPS we have no more surveys for you, take another survey, we recorded your submission thank you and then OOOPS we already have enough participants.

I mean one from time to time is ok but this is getting FREQUENT now !

I feel you Darkstar!!


I simply have surveys where i even don't care answering the questions to qualify, I just close the window.


Why do i even get surveys which are going to disqualify me no matter how many times i try to qualify for them(Waste of time), This goes for all sample cube, innovate, 95% of all Samplicio, Spectrum and Globaltestmarket invites.


There is also this one from Samplicio at the moment which i miracously do qualify for, It begins with something like : We are at the moment doing this survey across 30 countries about peoples preferences. Don't do this if you want to keep your sanity, You will be asked endless of repetetive questions for over 90 minutes and it really goes into details that are so ridiculously that your IQ will go down 70%.



I have a solution for keeping your keyboard intact, Buy an expensive laptop for $5000-$6000 and keep in mind how expensive it is every time you feel the urge to smash it ;)


My first 2 laptops ended up with a broken screen and a pretty smashed up keyboard, Since i bought the expensive it has never happened again (Anger management that works) :D

What if you guyz gets so frustrated being into clixsense since so many years...
Then what about us ...its been two months and hatsoff to you guyz for such patience in such a long journey...
Where things are not easy as it seems...where a 10mins survey ends upto 30mins and 30mins survey ends upto 90mins and then it shows quota full or screenout ...today a survey started on banking ..where it went and took almost more than 60mind - 45% completed and then screenout that was too for just around 50cents ..

Just a few month ago did buy a new laptop , last one was the cheap one . the cheapest one one market and lasted 7 years . one before same price lasted 8 years . this one to , the cheapest on the market , hope it will
last 6-8 years


My brain say... cheap 10 dollar toaster will last for 10 , 20 or 30 years , so simple nothing can go wrong , 100 dollar toaster have 200s things that can go wrong and it will last 2 years , 250 dollar toaster have 1000s think that can go wrong and it will last a year only if I am lucky

Or .... 10 dollar toaster will last under 1 year if you use it to much in month before it is 1 year old , you get money back and buy another 1 for 10 dollar in another shop and use it to much before ........ and so on and you never spend 1 cent on toaster ever again


Now , in last 25 years tasman1 did spend on buying new toaster, or coffee grinder or ,or,or,or how much ?

What is happening with this surveys? I'm not always active now in Clixsense because of my job.. But surveys change a lot. I decided to start surveys again yesterday, I received 36 surveys, and only 2 are qualified. 1 is, 3.06$ pending, and 1 is 0.55 cents. Then today, samplicio.us, it says 8 minutes, about smartphone, I answered everything and finish the survey, then it will just end up with "Unfortunately, you did not qualify in this survey!!!" wtf is going on? All surveys now are just wasting our time..

Positive outlook sure leads to success. feeling negative for all ,results in ruin that is a natural fact. I always see positive sides of a thing in predominance than the negative side . Negatives may sometimes lead to success if you learn from it but that needs a lot of patience.

good to see your ambition. I would say you would have attained the target within a year had you been here 2 years back. But now the members have increased and the rates of surveys have decreased and you have to be more active than the past. For Indians it is good time as there are many surveys for our region these days. 2018 has been a wonderful year for us. many indians have performed better during that year. this year is also not bad. This month; even being less active I have earned 82$ which is enchanting. But these may change in the near future as surveys of other regions flourish. You should know that surveys depend on many factors like region, gender, profiles, and many others. You should be frequently active each day before others of your profile completes the survey otherwise you will receive the message quotafull. try working with enthusiasm and don't get frustrated with disqualifications and trust the survey companies and above all our dearest clicksense. wish you success :thumbup:

June was a bad month, low 2 digits, however, last 2 days were great, $7 yesterday, $8 previous day and today crap so far, but overall month = really bad. As far as surveys, some people say they complete a bunch of red flag surveys, how ? Those surveys are mostly corporate and for business owners, IT managers, etc, As far as profile being holy grail, as I stated many times in the past, my profile is up to date already, why should I change it ? It almost seems as though some people here are hinting indirectly to purposely change profile to qualify for surveys, sorry but I do not subscribe to such activities, they are grounds to getting suspended form surveys indefinitely. I only change my profile when genuinely required, I've always had good earnings with the very same profile, so my poor results are NOT due to a bad profile or out of being lazy. It's still nice to have a FEW good days in the month at least, but earnings overall now represent 50-60% drop, and I am not the only one who complains about that, some do publicly, many privately, are they ALL to blame ? no. It's just like that, so to pad for the loss I now am active on CS and another long standing GPT that exists since 2002, and even with both combined, despite being able to get 3 figures it will be lower compared to what I did alone on CS in 2018, early 2019. So moving forward might consider other platforms, where I hear of people earning bib 2 digits daily, though I am always skeptic about that but will try. Can't expect good earnings from just 1 site anymore. Good tasks are all gone, and good surveys are less frequent.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm,,,,,

Remember , you can do a survey only on one site , no way to do it on 2 or more site
You can just do a survey at another site that you did not wish and try here , can you recognize that kind of surveys

CS have most surveys, few big site have many but still less , rest have just some and few have just few that no another site have

From time to time I have perfect earning here , 100% more than normal but that is just if one of my site is off line for few days and I do surveys from that site here

In short , I can cut all site but CS and earn from surveys here 10-12 dollars daily but no way I will put all my egg in one basket

In short just starting doing surveys on few site will not increase your earning to much , a bit yes but not much

At the end we all know , profile is holy grail ,,, but your profile is outdated,,,,,,,,,as you said here , most surveys now are for IT Managers etc ,,, yes
they are

To swim you must learn to swim , but think you did not go for swim for long time
