Has anyone noticed One poll has introduced their quality control questions? It normally says "quality control free text question. Your account may be blocked or deleted". There is an empty text row added at the end and I am really confused if it that empty text answer that should be selected for this? I was just ignoring that empty text row and selecting my answer I would normally select. I am on almost £37 at the moment and it would be a disappointment if they delete my account right now! Any advice?

    Can't say I've seen it on any surveys I've done with them (50 in March so far).

    I only started getting those with quality check for the last few days. I am wondering if they are primarily aiming at panelists who are approaching their £40 redemption? Just the thoughts! I hope I am wrong but you never know.

    I would imagine they're targeting people who don't read the questions and just fill in stuff randomly.

    I would never leave so much money in a survey company account, and always cash in as soon as possible. Otherwise, you never know if things change.

    £40 is the minimum for redemption.

    I finally reached £40 and cashed out last Sunday. I'm hoping they don't come up with an excuse to not pay me. I've always written something relevant for the quality control questions.

    I am really worried that I did not tick that free text empty box answer which they probably meant as a quality check answer.
    It would be horrible if they will use it as an excuse to not let me cash out £40 especially as its been taken a good few years to earn that amount!

    That should tell you right there, that they're not worth bothering with! Along with the sneaky quality control questions. A few years to earn £40 - spend your time with survey companies who value your time.

    Yes, you are right - they are not worth your time!
    To be honest I wanted to give up on them long time ago but just wanted to finish earning £40.

    There have also been reports - people stuck on £39.90 and not getting the surveys for months.

    I wouldn't worry if I was you - you already redeemed it.:)
