This is not a big deal but I have noticed a problem with Browniz and surveys. I know I've participated in 3-4 surveys over the past year, including the most recent survey of platinum members, but when I look at the summary of my BrowniZ Points, it says

Survey responses x 50 per survey 0 0

It would be nice to be credited for them, especially since I hope to (someday) turn my Browniz into cash for membership renewal. Is this limited to me? Have other people gotten Browniz points for survey participation?

Same question... Aug 10, 2005

I was asking myself the same question just a few days ago. I have participated in various surveys in the last months, and none have been credited. Either there's a technical problem or there's a subtility that I don't quite grasp yet

You are not alone!

I'd never noticed it before, but I've got the same thing in my totals for Browniz, 0 for surveys. I don't exactly know how many I've participated in, but I know for sure I did the one for platinum members the other day.

On the contrary I got browniz credited Aug 10, 2005

No problem here. But I think the participation was not due to browniz. Brandis

I would have participated in the surveys anyway, but I noticed the same thing. Must be a glitch!

I wasn't even aware that we got points for answering the surveys. I know that we get five brownies for answering polls and those points have shown up. Nothing for filling out the platinum member survey as of yet. I imagine that I won't lose a considerable amount of sleep over it though.

I was not aware that we could earn points for answering surveys, I was not even aware we could earn points for answering polls...
But since this is the topic; I have not received extra points either.

Same here. Aug 11, 2005

I've participated in several, never received points for any, guess it's a "glitch". Very minor and insignificant problem, most of the site works very well.

Rollout of new KudoZ release Aug 16, 2005

Hi Robert,
I was just checking this one out of boredom.

The ProZ.com team are in the process of rolling out a major new KudoZ release - I don't expect them to be bored right now...

Best regards,
Ralf

I wasn't being pushy mind you. Typically though these sort of picayune things are addressed relatively quickly. It's noteworthy when they aren't (which is a good thing I'd say). Thanks for the info Ralf.

Same problem... Aug 20, 2005

I have answered at least 3 surveys so far this year, and no Browniz either.
