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.

They did, they put a big white label with the product name, manufacturer, and what it will be called if/when it makes it on the market. I sure hope it does! This product was unbelievable!
Either that or when you take the follow-up survey...

How would you rate the BRAND item sent to you?

Which would you prefer to use?
- BRAND item
- My usual item

Problem with that when you like the product they don't always tell you the brand name.
So true. Sometimes I can try to guess by the design and shape of the package or container the product comes in but other times, it is a big mystery.

I have been driving myself nuts over a shampoo I tested for Synovate over a year ago. Best shampoo ever; it made my curls completely poof-free and gave them almost a lacquered shine, plus it smelled like heaven. I wanted to cry when I used the last of it. Since then I have sniffed every new shampoo I come across in an attempt to find it, no luck yet. I think they should send out info on products we test if/when they are brought to market..

I wish I could of had some of that to try since I know how frustrating it is to find the ideal shampoo and conditioner for curly hair without looking like a frizz ballBig Grin

After 4 years I was dropped from Pinecone because I couldn't check my e-mail for 3 weeks while I was in the hospital. I e-mailed them and they said I was autodropped and they cannot reverse it. If anyone finds a banner or anything, would you please PM me? I would REALLY appreciate it.

I don't think you can re-join, as they already had your record in the system and therefore would decline your offer. Isn't that right?

This is correct, sadly.

Just got survey 47887-1001 which said I would be reviewing 3 products?? I let the $5 to $3 thing go a while back but this is too much. This will be the first Pinecone survey in five years I'lll gladly pass on. It's unfortunate that we have people who are willing to put up with this.

Is there a time limit on this or does this mean forever as far as re enrolling? I was dumped about a month ago, (after nine years of loyalty) and I thought that maybe I could try to rejoin 6 to 12 months later. I hope that perhaps I could re enroll at some point later down the road?

thanks

Me too I did about 4 surveys for them this week none that have to do with this pt I think unless this is from a household eval I have no clue but I like it too. I know 1 person talked about 3 prods in one survey but this one has two but they both have different survey numbers and seperate evals too.
