Hello minny63 - my account has had me locked out since at least 11 April - tells me I have breached something in surveys. I can't get any response - decided I would just cash in my chips, but it won't even let me do that. I have $78 there - so if they have done a midnight flit, they will have made a lot of money.

It's now been 3 days and I'm still screened out after completing multiple happy hour surveys. I've sent multiple messages to Admin but no response. So many things going wrong lately and no support from Admin. Is anyone else having the same issue? I'm just about ready to give up altogether! I used to enjoy this site but lately it's become hard work. So many things going wrong and no answers.

There's still something very wrong with the Watch _ videos to gain bonus points in the Guessing Game. You can hot the button several times and nothing happens, so it's almost impossible to earn any bonus points. On rare occasions, you can get through the 5 and 10 levels with much perseverance and lots of clicking and hoping, but after those levels, which are not working properly, given how many time they need trying, there seems no way to get further. This was theoretically fixed, but it's still not working. Very frustrating.

While working on my essay about remote patient monitoring, I found myself needing deeper insight into the technology and its implications. Thankfully, I came across a detailed example that provided not only the necessary background but also critical viewpoints on the topic. The essay I found at this link: https://www.nursingpaper.com/examples/remote-patient-monitoring-essay/ was invaluable, offering both clarity and depth that enriched my own writing.

I just went to do a survey only to find that because I have 'higher than average' screenouts I have to do a Happy Hour survey - which I found in the past and today I can never qualify for. So frustrating! Especially when you consider all the times you complete a survey and instead of getting points you get the stupid message you didn't meet the criteria. I'd like to know how you can complete the survey and not manage to mee the criteria. Just a frustrated vent sorry.

It happened again yesterday and managed to complete a happy hour survey. I screened out of 2 normal surveys and closed one when I didn't agree with giving email/location details. Screened out of 2 more surveys then got the "higher than average screen outs" message again. This is so frustrating especially when the happy hour survey I did complete seemed to take 20 minutes and that was for the 'short' happy hour survey option. It isn't fair and it's not like we can help that we screen out.
