Not sure if it's been mentioned, but from 30th June-July 7th there are 5 'Around The World' Collectors bills to get. Only just realised that myself when I got my first one for 7sb search lol. Not sure what the bonus is for collecting all of them.

A really quick DS on coach travel I thought I'd be dq'd as I don't travel like that.

Managed 3 TS and a DS as am trying to get a 50 instead of my usual 25 which usually takes 3 weeks.

Wonders if SB are trying to bribe me as was thinking of doing all my tasks on SurveyMad instead of just the casino tasks.

There are 3 new 2sb vids on PL.

EDIT - none of which have actually credited yet ...

EDIT AGAIN - they've credited in Chrome not IE

Cath I had this a couple of weeks ago and I had to download an updated version of Java, but I had to restart Firefox, so it could be that you lose the survey. One thing you could try as a short term until you download the new version is

Go to Control Panel
In the search box for control type in Java
It should come up with a java 32bit icon
Click on that
Go to the security tab and move the slider down to medium
Click on OK

I don't know if it will work but worth a try. When you've updated Java, go back and move the slider up to 'high'

01/07/13 Answers: Dashboard - u23835250 SB
Any ideas?? Nice surprise whatever it is!

People on facebook are doing more than one daily survey a day and posting about it I don't know what else we have to do to make people aware that the rules are one daily survey in any Swagbucks day ie 8am to 8am - and when you get to the congratulations screen, that's it for the day. There's nothing on the Swagbucks site that says this which is appalling being as how you can get your account deactivated for doing more than one a day. I've asked Nick to get some very specific and clear rules put on the Swagbucks site about this, although I'm not holding my breath that they will do. One person did 3 today and another 'a couple'.

Leave them to it, there is only so much educating and telling people that you can do.
Wait until they come back saying their accounts have been blocked and then say "we did try telling you"

We know the rules.

The other day I asked a question to the Swagbucks support about why my Sponsorpay wall was telling me I have no offers available (I know someone here has said others have had it blocked for fraudulent activity) but I don't know how to get back to find if it's been answered - can anyone help?

Without wishing to stir things up, and being a relatively new SB'er, I have searched the whole SB site, terms of use, FAQs, dos and donts etc and can find nothing. At one time it was not permitted to share codes and now it is encouraged - is it possible that the rule on DS's no longer applies? I really don't see how an unwritten rule can be enforced. I hate to see the way people are talking to each other on FB :-(

Thanks Cally, yes I can see that. I am getting the following message by the offers that haven't credited from over 30 days ago.
Offer clicked - Participation is being verified
Report problem

So I will report them individually.
