POSTING LINKS IS NOT ALLOWED ON HERE...READ THE POST ABOVE AND STOP BREAKING THE RULES...ALL POSTED LINKS WILL BE MOD ALERTED !!!!

REASON WHY:
Quote from kel_be View Post :
SD has had a problem with getting in trouble with survey companies. Majority of those companies, especially the larger ones, do not like their survey to be posted on sites such as SD. Mainly because people will see the links here, see the qualification guidelines, and lie to get accepted. That skews their results & target pool. From there, we get letters, emails, and PMs requesting that their information is removed & blocked on our site.

Because of that, we try not to get associated with survey companies. We try to remove any cheating/lying abilities, and keep things neutral so that we can stay in those companies good side. Pinecone Research is no exception.

We are in their good graces, and wish to remain there. Hence why we have decided not to have any direct links to sites with the banner, or sign up links.

As stated in the first post, you can tell people where to go (as is "Go to suchandshuch.com, banner is in the upper left), but don't link directly to the site or banner URL.

Well, I just got an email from Pinecone this week asking me to forward it to anyone I thought might be interested, (someone else already posted it, the link has been removed, but the email address is still there,) so just look it up on Google or something and apply. I get about $10 a month, on average. Some surveys take longer than others, and there are questionaires to fill out once or twice a week about yourself, these are not paid for, they are just part of being associated with Pinecone. So, it's not a living, but it buys some beerSmilie

I am really sorry to hear that some people had been dropped from their panel. This happened to me with Opinion Outpost and Survey Spot as I never got any advance warning nor email. I was upset at first but figured it is best to move on as there are plenty of other good survey panels I am still fortunate to be part of.

I am doing their surveys regularly and they always ask if I want to participate in their product testing and I say yes .........But I never receive their PT's ?? This is been happening for last 5-6 months. Anyone else having same problem?
I will go that long without a PT from then and then all of a sudden I will get three.

Still have not been dropped, sorry to those that did. Been with them for a very long time but if I were to be dropped it would be no big deal. I only average about 4-6 surveys a month with them.

i got dropped and without warning-I got this:

Periodically we have found it necessary to refresh the composition of
our research panel in order to stay current with changes in the general
population and to provide clients with the broadest possible spectrum of
consumer opinions. In doing so, on occasion we have had to discontinue
the membership of some of our panelists.

Your household was on the list for deactivation and subsequently removed
from the panel.

Although we are unable to reactivate your membership, we appreciate your
past participation and interest in the panel.

yeah they appreciate my membership..what a crock! They had me renew my membership agreement less than 2 weeks before they dropped me. Does that make any sense?

Apparently Pinecone Reseach is taking applications! Go to their website and underneath the login area there is a scrolling marquee that links to the signup page.
