It's human nature and UNDERSTANDABLE to lose patience and be frustrated, what matters is to keep trying and keeping in mind majority of surveys will disqualify. Based on experience over the years, I see averages of 5%-9% success rates, since these are avgs, it does not mean you will get that day to day, it is over a period of time. Luckily for the majority of attempts you will be disqualified from the beginning or very early. End survey DQ can happen but it's not common compared to off quota / expired surveys.
One thing to keep in mind, this will *HELP* reduce end page DQ, reversals, etc. Survey scripts embed quality control checks. Surveys ARE manually audited but part of it is done through software. Most surveys incorporate quality control questions to make sure you are paying attention. Some surveys will ask the same questions to see if you answer the same way. Some surveys will check for conflicting patterns and answers. Some surveys use individual timers so they can know how fast you submit each page. Surveys use a general timer to see long it took you to submit the whole survey. Some are obvious if you are paying attention, some are discrete and hidden in the script, so if you fail one or more QC it will definitely increase your amount of DQ and reversals, HOWEVER, what I do not agree with is the notion that people get reversals and DQ strictly because they are dishonest / cheat, this makes me furious because it is NOT a fact. While you can reduce your reversals and end page DQ by taking the proper time to answer surveys carefully, reading each question, you will not eliminate the problem, as you can still get end page DQ and reversals that is not through your own fault, however at least you will not get additional ones that are due to quality issues. I do not agree that all DQ and reversal are due to quality, you can see PROOF of that as some reversals get canceled even. Doing research, I found out that some publishers reduce their sample, they might have gone above it and want to reduce sample size so they will discard a % - Another reason is that their metrics might be a little unfair, and some honest data might be caught in the web, and of course I am convinced that a % of those are publishers abusing platform to get free work, as they pay the networks per complete, and the amount they pay is 2 figures, so that 40 cent survey we do here for example, someone is making 2 digits from that (the network, in publisher fees), by network I mean the company providing the service to CS, and not CS itself.
So yeah never give up, but I believe strongly that one has to know when it is time to, every one has a threshold - there are good and bad days, don't give up on bad days, look at the big picture, sometimes bad is temporary, and it gets better, with surveys I see a decline month to month, yet I don't give up, BUT if this persists long term decisions have to be made. Networks running those offerings, they are exploding in profits year to year, whilst we the end user are going pear shaped, there is every valid reason to be impatient and frustrated at times. So the best thing is do your best and always your best, what is really frustrating is being told by those in good situation that "hey if you are DQ or doing wrong it is your fault for not being honest" they may not say it like that, but it is insinuated. That is wrong.
