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

Why would anyone lie to get into PineCone? No one really knows what to say to get it, anyway.

Thanks for posting the updated rules regarding PC banners and links. Some of us have been waiting for a clear cut explanation. I for one am happy the Mods have made the decision and posted it clearly.

I personally know quite a few locations for PineCone banners, including the elusive $5.

well it is my understanding that you can say the site, just not link it.

Right?

like I could say volition has a banner, or amylyn has a link, just not actual links to the actual page.

Right?

Yes, that's true.
I could say, I have found banners in all of the locations below.
amylynn.org
volition.com
artlex.com
internetpaidsurveys.com
playhangman.com
360updates.com
learningplanet.com
moodypublishing.com


But it seems alot easier to give detailed instructions via PM. Smilie

I've been a pinecone member for a few months now and at first was getting surveys a few times a week and I haven't received one probably for about the last 3 weeks, is anyone else having this problem?

I think they come and go with the wind... I get a bunch at first then it tapers off.. then I start getting a few more... then it gets slows again.

So I just don't look for them, the way I see it, if I get one great if not again for awhile... that is fine too. nod
