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.

"Clink" is the sound that is made when newbies don't bother reading and like to ignore anyone else and they find themselves randomly hit with a hammer that fell out of a senior SD'er's hands...
So to speak.Big Grin

That was me being nice.

Stick Out Tongue

The odd thing is that they would never take me, for over a year I tried and never got accepted... I only ever got their PTs through other companies but I clicked the scrolling link on the homepage the other day and got an email earlier today.

I get dropped too after 7 years. I didn't get any explanation, just stopped receiving surveys and I emailed them to find out what was going on, and only then did they send me an email.
Was upset at first, but since they dropped the payment from $5 to $3 I was not happy with them anyway.

There is helping others, being helped by others... then there is being totally lazy and refusing to help yourself. People who don't take the time to read anything but the first few lines of the OP won't even help themselves, idk why they expect others to. The majority of the problems with survey companies lately seem to be caused by lazy people seeking rewards, I won't help those people cause more problems.

Neither will I. If you're too lazy to read two pages of a thread on SD, you're too lazy to be a good survey taker.

Thanks for the further clarification. I do see your points and totally agree. I know yourself, myself, and many others on here do take surveys very seriously and I am all for being honest when completing a survey and/or PT.

Indeed seriously. Kinda off topic but I'm psyched about it. I've had dry scalp for over 6 years, and because I did a survey site thoroughly they sent me a product to test for them. I've tried dozens of products with no success. This new product I tested cured my dryscalp in 2 days and I am completely in love with the site and makers. I wish I could pay them for sending it to me. This survey stuff is not meant to be taken lightly, there are some surveys that could lead to great progress, so people put in effort to read everything. Surveys are not all about money.

Problem with that when you like the product they don't always tell you the brand name.

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!
