    You can always do a few more questions and provide total nonsense as answers. Then toss it back.

    Seriously, I doubt many requesters would use partial results on a survey. Even if they are unethical enough to do it, the data either wouldn't be useful, or wouldn't be reliable.

    Edit: unless of course they are researching what fraction of people bail on a survey under various conditions. Which would be unethical as hell, but occasionally I've had my suspicions...

    i know there are surveys out there that are just covers for a psychology experiment. how much torture will a survey taker will take before giving up. i got one where the task was to find two numbers that equal 10 (no not the one recently this was a few weeks ago), i found that the once i got to the actual test that none of the numbers could be pared to equal 10. and i'm good at math so that's not the problem. the biggest problem is your bonus was dependent on how many you got right in a time limit. so with none possible means no bonus for pure torture. i left a pretty nasty message to the requester in the comments.

    For anyone up for some torture and needs the money, fair warning.

    The tasks are pretty easy just they take a lot of time and make sure to have your participation ID copied before you agree to go full screen.

    ~60 minutes.

    Tossed it. Is it a "speed test" if every page takes 10 seconds to load, every time you scroll it takes 10 seconds to react, etc? I think not.

    Just to irritate you even more, the bonus in my version was for your self-reported score, not how many you actually got right.

    Did the investigator ever get back to you?

    mine had the bonus for a self reported score but i didn't want to lie even though i thought i deserved something. it sounded like lying might not get me anything anyway. and no i never heard anything from the investigator. i never contacted the person just left a comment in the survey itself.

    My hunch is that is what they were investigating. Still have the requester's name?
    PM if you do and we might be able to find what they are doing.

    have no idea what the requester's name was. i don't even remember the name of the hit so i can't search for it in this forum or my hit database.

    Anyone do 2 step verification for Amazon account? I got locked out for a bit so I couldn't turk. Their 2 step verification was broken on my end that it was sending me the code on my phone in 75 texts!! :crushed: Couldn't even enter the code. Wanted to turn off the 2 step but even that was disabled. Told me to call customer service. Cleared my cookies/cache while I was talking to them which didn't work. Then while I was on hold, I tried again and got in like nothing happened.
