So frustrating!

Have you ever been right in the middle of doing a survey and something goes wrong? I feel like this happens to me A LOT. Just today I was doing a survey that I was going to be paid $3 for and right in the middle of it my internet goes out! Just randomly. I try to go back in and of course it won't load for me again. It's not always my internet that causes this but sometimes it's a problem with the survey site. Has this happened to you before? Isn't it frustrating? UGH!

I have had that happen to me many times in the past. And the thing is, I really don't like extremely long surveys just for that reason. Any blip, and you lose it and you have to start over from the beginning. I guess so many people are trying to access it at one time the server can not handle the traffic. Hope you got it going!

Yes this always seems to happen to me. I don't know why though. Usually I've already spent about 20-30 minutes doing the survey and then some kind of error pops up or the ever famous words "we have reached out quota" comes on the screen.

I find it most frustrating when I try to complete a survey and a few minutes into it, it tells me I don't fit the criteria they are looking for. This is just as bad as the site going down in the middle of the survey! It drives me crazy!!!

hi jennlk84 yes it has happened to me but if you can contact the survey company they will sometimes let you do it over or in the case of mysurvey.com the adviser told me she would credit me with the points I would have received had I been able to do the whole survey as it was the surveys fault.

Yes this has happened alot and its the survey website that is the problem. You will be taking the survey and then it either gets stuck and can't go forward or it just all disappears. Yes its iritating because it happens after you have been doing the survey for awhile. It doesn't happen in the beginning of the survey.

OMG! I read several times to know what happened on you and what's your meaning. I shouldn't be blamed, because it never happened on me, or most of people living in China. The methods of conducting a poll in your countries may send a survey through your mobile phone or PDA or other move devices, in my country, it does't work this way, if the factory wants to launch a survey, he often hires some people, students are the best ones because of the cheap wages, then send them to the street with lots of questionnaires, I'm always stopped by such guys and let me fill up the blanks in the questionnaire, it's of free, I'm not be paid a damn, so I want to try your paid survey:)

I really hate it when you are half way through a survey and then then tell you that they have enough people from my age group or whatever bracket they are using. It really annoys me. Surely they could make it so that if you started a survey at least you got paid for the part you did. If they send you a survey they should not stop half way through and say I am not included or whatever.
