On the MindField Online Internet Panels Facebook page we have noticed more people saying “why haven’t I been getting any surveys lately?” Previously, we have said that it can take a week or two to get started when you first join MindField Online.
But for members who have been around awhile, there may be different issues. It can also be a matter of your personal profile not being up to date. Like, MindField Online didn’t know you had a baby, so we haven’t sent you any “mommy-type” surveys.
Other times it is a technical issue with your email. Depending on your email program, you may have a storage limit. Your mailbox may be full, and you can’t receive any invitations. Cleaning out your old messages may help.
Also, there’s the issue of Spam. Internet service providers (ISPs) are getting more aggressive, always looking for ways to stop spam and junk mail from clogging up your IN box…and usually, that’s a GOOD thing! Unfortunately, this is not a perfect science, and messages you would want to receive sometimes end up in your Spam or Junk email folder – and you may not even know it!
It’s usually pretty easy to fix this, though. For example, in Yahoo Mail, you can highlight a message in your Spam folder and mark it “Not Spam.” Then, messages from that sender that come after that should land in your proper IN box.
At any rate, MindField Online is looking into the issue. We are reviewing members who haven’t received a survey in a while, and trying to figure out what the problem might be. So, please be patient! And THANKS!
