Yesterday, I addressed requestors. Today, I'm addressing anyone here who has given, or continues to give, requestors bad reviews because you were screened out. You're not the target demographic for a particular survey. It's that simple. There's not a thing wrong with being screened out. Not all surveys can be handled by qualification. Quit giving bad reviews just because you didn't fit the demographic needed for someone's survey. Thank you for coming to my Tuesday TED Talk.
I suspect it is because it is an unpaid screener.

how intense are the User Testing tasks? i see the quals come up all the time but I never have the time to do them.
Are we talking the same thing? Usertesting.com? Screeners vs quals. If so, depends on the particular task. Some super short and easy, some long and complicated. Live Interviews go the same way.

It's definitely worth trying for them. I've had some that take around 30 minutes, some that are an unbelievable 5 minutes, for $10! Usually somewhere in-between.

And it's pretty nice when you realize you just got $10 for doing what you'd do to catch and complete a 50 cent survey on Mturk.

I'm here too! I also work after dinner, I earn dollars Hahaha, not to get rich .. I buy a lot of things I need with the Amazon Gift Card. Last purchased: a coat, arrives tomorrow, shipped from Louisville, in 2 days and is already in Italy. I spent $ 126 because there are taxes to pay, but it's a very nice coat.

I suspect it is because it is an unpaid screener.
Yeah, there's a huge difference in people not paying attention to the titles and descriptions, and requestors having you accept the hit (and not getting paid for it) to find out if you're what they want.
