    Are These Survey Sites Worth It (2) Updated 2016 17th May 16 at 2:30 PM
    OK so after a few requests over the years I've decided to update the previous thread

    I've made a new poll which will remain open for a year taking into account the sites that I have been told have closed and a few newer or more frequently used sites. I have chosen to leave out more exclusive and popular sites such as Pinecone because they are so popular already and there is limited space for my options in the poll- I've had to whittle it down to 10 from nearly 40! I wanted to have as many different sites and some more dubious survey sites on the list to help people and save people wasting their time trialling sites so leaving out the more obviously good sites was behind my reasoning on that.

    A good site to keep an eye on is the global site for all survey sites The Survey Police which keeps track and has reviews of most if not all survey sites. I think it's based in the US but it does cover the UK too so bare this in mind when looking at new survey sites or looking for feedback on sites you may be a member of.

    And one last disclaimer- I am by no means a member of all the different survey sites listed. I just don't have the time, energy or boredom threshold that I used to have (and sadly not the health either!) I have started this thread for everyone to use, add to and hopefully pre-warn others about, I don't have information on all or even most of the sites unfortunately and although I will be adding to the thread it's a thread for everyone to please add to and help others with because I definitely don't have all the answers or experience!

    Thank you to everyone who adds their experiences in past experience has been a huge help here.

    I have just looked on Populuslive to check my account and find that the points have been reduced recently. I was expecting a payout this month as in September I had 47 points but the total is now down at 30!!
    Has anyone else had any problem with them?
    I am waiting for a reply to my email at the moment.

    Has anyone found that surveys from Populuslive have slowed down?

    Not much difference to usual during January and February with approx 8 email survey invites each month although I haven't received any surveys during March.

    However, the last email I received was on 24.02.17 with the title Populus Audit about being an active member. I hadn't got around to completing this and then forgot about it, maybe that's why I haven't received any surveys since, hmmmm!

    I have only had one invite in March & I did reply to the Audit email. I have updated my profiles to see if that helps but mine is probably because I am an old lady!
