With all the survey panels, not just Red Planet, I wish that they wouldn't allow the rogue surveys to be published. By rogue, I mean too often, the initial invitation would have a shorter estimated completion time, then when you click in, then it may redirect you to another survey site and gives you a longer completion time but for the same remuneration.

Project Swordfish - seemingly about internet services. I probably answered 15 questions before it rissoled me. Ridiculous.

project Guitarslim - rissoled after a few questions.

Project Shoulder (banking, finance and insurance products/providers). *Very* long (more than the advertised 35 mins) but still 350 pts.
I just got invited to do Project Shoulder today. Thanks for confirming it is that hideously long financial product survey (from Monash I think?) as I have avoided taking part in Project Shoulder RECONTACT which has been sitting in my survey list for some weeks now as I suspected it was it which I have completed 3 times in the past couple of years so will ignore as well as I cannot justify a fair chunk of a mind numbing hour even for 350 points.

I can't remember if it's Red Planet or My Opinions. The survey I really hate is the one from RepTrak. It asks you about the reputation of 20 or 30 or so companies. Now whenever I see that name, I just shut the survey down. Usually the estimated time is 20 mins, but I've never managed to finish it in that time. The questions are so repetitive and mind numbing. I've given my 2 cents at the end of the survey, but I see no improvement at all.

Double bunger

Project Pudding, quick 50 points about precincts in Brisbane and a development I've never heard of
Project Switchism, slow 100 points and yet another of those that assume everyone gets work by applying for jobs online.

Sometimes, I don't even know if the researchers or survey makers are living in the current world. Every so often, I see multiple choice answers with Thomas Dux (yes it still exists as a brand, but not as a store), and Safeway (as well as a Woolworths option). What the?

I also remember one particular company, it asks for the net household income, then gives a definition of gross income before taxes. I left a comment at the very end and I think they actually reworded it!

Completed Hermetic Tracker - 150 points for NBN and possible extra 50 points if you give the address in the survey

Or alternatively, the rogue surveys that collect a boatload of data about you, then claim that you didn’t qualify.

Project Annanas about financial products. Maybe 20 detailed questions before being rejected. Unacceptable. Avoid it.

Ive sent in a complaint about the above ( hello Red Planet) asking about RPs policies on this type of thing and will report back on their response.

Red Planet support answered my complaint about Project Ananas. Amongst other stuff:

* There were 9 screening questions, some with multiple answer component, not about 20, as I thought.

* If there are more than 10 screening questions, that is disclosed and additional points given

* Data collected on failed screenings is not passed to their client

* Gave me 250 QFF points for my trouble.

Seems fair enough - can only take them at their word. It sure seemed like 20 screening questions!!

Hey, thanks for following up, @RooFlyer

The comment about multiple answer component suggests there could have been close to 20 actual data items!

Projects Rider and Scorbunny, bumped from both for 15 points a shot after logging in and selecting "take survey". A much better return on effort than logging in, responding to 20 screening questions, then getting a 15 point bump.

Appears I was bumped because I am not in Australia right now; seems the central scrutinizer can look through a VPN with Australia IP. Quite ironic that the invitation only survey panel for frequent flyers only works when you're not overseas.

I'm in Australia and still get bumped on surveys right after starting, and this is for other panels too. I reckon they read the cookies on the computer.
