I am not sure if this is the right topic, if not, could a moderator please direct me to the correct one.

In my profile set up I saw that you could get points (BrowniZ I believe) for answering surveys. 50 pts for each survery.

I know that I answered almost everyone of them that came up since I joined. But I have not received any points yet. When are these points added or is this a glitch? Does anyone know something about this?

Thanks,
Lucinda

Quick Poll? Mar 25, 2006

Are you referring to real surveys or just the 'Quick Poll' we all see on the main ProZ page? I doubt we'll get points for that

I've never received a survey from ProZ, not sure they're up and running yet... moderator?

Hi Lucinda

If you click on your BrowniZ total you're taken to a page where I can read

Survey responses x 50 per survey
Polls answered x 5 per poll

As I have 0 for surveys too, I reach the same conclusion, because I already have answered to surveys too (two in a year, maybe?)

And yes, quick polls do pay BrowniZ too (5).

It's something left over from the early days Mar 26, 2006

When Proz.com was first started, there were 50 points for answering a survey. However, there was only one and the same survey offered all the time, and it concerned, if I remember correctly, something about insurances for full-time translators, which was a topic that did not apply to me at the time, as I had a full-time job at a firm of lawyers.

I think this idea was never developed further - but obviously the information is still there in the system somewhere, as a relic from the past.
