is it just me,or is it getting harder to complete one survey now? i haven't had a completed one in months now,and the last i did kicked me out as "not qualifying" after i'd stated my race. what on earth does my race have to do with the rest of the survey? granted they could be looking for a particular market,but they could state that at the beginning instead of wasting my time.

I am a member, but because they don't deal in actual money I haven't really been trying to hard to get surveys done there. I'm doing a lot better with cashcrate and quickrewards right now. Good luck!

Yeah! That part bothers me too. But, I think it has something to do with marketers seeking a specific demographic. We're all human,either man or woman and basically and our needs are basically the same. We all eat the same foods and drink the same water. Regardless of race or gender, we all use toothpaste and shampoo. So, I wonder why they ask about race at all. I've done surveys with Myview and they're usually fun. Haven't gotten any surveys in awhile. Maybe it's just a dry spell. Thanks for your thought provoking question.

Hi scarlet_woman! I guess, that is discrimination. As you have mentioned that what does race got to do with making a survey? I really don't know. They should have stated at the beginning that they are just looking for a specific or particular market so as not to waste other people's time. Take care and have a great day! lovelots..faith

i guess more omission than discrimintation. it just seems nothing qualifies lately there must be more people participating now too,because some get filled awful fast.

With surveys, they want results across the board so there are a certain number in various age groups, a certain number in both genders and they also work on where you live...I guess they would do race as well in a multi-cultural society if the survey could be swayed by race and nationalities. Imagine if they surveyed only women between 19 and 35...that would not be a balanced representation of things.

that's true. i just wish they'd say what they're looking for in a particular survey at the top of the send.

I'm experiencing the same. It is harder to qualify for their surveys. Don't feel bad, I was disqualified after I entered age lol! I'll keep trying though, because they have paid me before when I reach the payout. Good luck!

i have been qualifying for less surveys, but more focus groups, whatever the reason, i'll take it! i have a page full of survey sites on my profile if you are interested in joining some more sites.. they are all free to join and honest survey sites, not GPT sites.
