  • Corona Virus
    The WHO states that there is no evidence of pet to human transmission. The one dog in Hong Kong with the weak positive (after the test sat for two full days, when results are usually taken within hours) was living within an infected owner. Blood tests to confirm if the dog has the virus in its system are still pending.
    This virus is a droplet-borne disease, transmitted from person to person in the vast majority of cases through sneezing, coughing and close contact. As for the N-95 masks, the vast majority of people will be wearing them incorrectly. During SARS, our masks were custom-fitted to endure maximum protection. This took half an hour with the infection-control team. If you're not used to wearing a mask, you will be constantly adjusting it - which only brings further unnecessary contact with your face.
  • Corona Virus
    Calm down, people. Wash your hands and don't touch your face until you do so. The ONLY people who should be wearing masks are those with symptoms, or health care workers. I worked in a Toronto hospital during the SARS outbreak in 2003. SARS was just as contagious and had a high death rate of around 3%. I know of only one person who died and she was a front-line nurse at the hospital where the virus was prevalent. Lots of people will get this virus, most will have few or no symptoms. As with seasonal flu, the elderly and those with underlying respiratory and heart issues are most vulnerable. The flu kills thousands worldwide every year and no flips out over that.
  • Account Terminated
    Nope, not a thing. No surveys, no replies to emails or from the address provided my Nat M.
    Lots of negative reviews on Survey Police about Univox already. Including mine from last year when a bunch of us were banned. Nothing ever changes, I guess.
  • What a muddle!!
    After exactly 30 days without a single survey invite, today I got an email inviting me to a 100 point survey. "Great!" I thought, "the drought is over!"
    Of course when I clicked on it it took me to the usual "Ohh! We have not found the best survey to match your interest" page.
    Having read the mayhem that seems to be reigning at Univox HQ (if there even is such a thing) this weekend, I'm sure this was just a mistake and we'll be back to usual run of the mill chaos tomorrow.

    I think you're absolutely right. It would explain these ridiculous, impossible scores Stevens A. has accumulated. And that survey you got by accident one day was certainly never meant to be seen by us humble survey takers out here in the real world.

    So, Admin, what have you got to say for yourselves?
  • What's your current rank in the Valentine's Day Contest??
    I am humbled by this big number which I'm proud to say I got by doing absolutely nothing for the last 29 days. My rank is now 8014. Woohoo!
  • Account Terminated
    Yep, all of affected by this have been fed that same line of BS.
  • Account Terminated
    Don't live in the US. I am in Canada. I have never received a request for tax info. As for making $600, that's laughable. The most I've ever made on this site is $130 CDN.
  • What's your current rank in the Valentine's Day Contest??
    Wow, I actually looked today in my usual daily fruitless search for surveys and I'm at 7872. Really hoping to break 8000. A new low, all thanks to Univox.
  • Surveys
    Misery loves company, Stan. You're not alone.
  • Account Terminated
    Melissa, Christine Knapp and I have repeatedly emailed support and asked for Admin's help in the forum and all any of us have received have been form letters basically saying that no surveys fit our profiles. Which is ludicrous, given that the day before this ban went into effect, I received over 30 Univox survey invites. We've all done what people on here have suggested - used a different browser, cleared cache and cookies of course updated the profile that didn't need updating. Nothing. I have not been told my account has been terminated as happened to Melissa, but I won't be surprised if that happens.

    I also emailed the address provided by Nat M and have not received a reply as of today and I still have no surveys. I also requested a redemption 3 days ago, and I'm pleased to report that I did receive my PayPal payment this morning. It has now been 28 days since this all began. I truly believe at this point that we are not going to be reinstated.

    I just want to know the reason.
  • Account Terminated
    A very good question.
  • Account Terminated
    I think it's worth noting that last summer when some of us were banned from the site, I could still get in to the forum even though I couldn't log on to the main site. In fact, that was when I first started using the forum, just to try and find out what was happening.
    I've also sent a polite query to the address provided by no Nat M. No word yet on the redemption I requested two days ago.
  • Account Terminated
    Wow, guess it's just a matter of time before I get the same message. Thanks for posting that email address. Will definitely send a message tomorrow. This is outrageous considering how much time and effort I and most of us put into these nickel and dime surveys.
  • Today no surveys in my account
    You've given me an idea. I'm going to try and cash out as I have 2325 points. I have never had a problem with cashing out, but if there's one this time, I'll definitely suspect it's related to being banned from taking surveys.
  • What's your current rank in the Valentine's Day Contest??
    7534. Going down.........................
  • Today no surveys in my account
    Yes, Admin does know why. They're not resorting to calling us liars this time as they did last summer when many of us were unceremoniously kicked off the site. But there's no doubt that many of us have been blacklisted and we'll probably never know why.
    I'm just beginning to think that after more than 3 weeks, we're not going to be reinstated this time as we were after two weeks last summer.
  • positive feedback for univox today
    Well said and so true for those of us like Christine who have not received surveys since 30 January. Those automatic email responses are a complete insult. JUST TELL US WHAT THE ISSUE IS!!! (Sorry for the shouting but it's been a very long dry 26 days)
  • What's your current rank in the Valentine's Day Contest??
    Equally fishy that we're now exactly the same rank.
  • What's your current rank in the Valentine's Day Contest??
    Yep, exactly the same for me. I never did care about any of the stupid contests, I just want to complete a few surveys and make a little cash on the side. And good point - I wonder what will happen after the contest ends. Will we be back in their good graces again, with no explanation of what the problem was in the first place?
    And I'm at 7358 today! I'm definitely sinking faster than you!
  • What's your current rank in the Valentine's Day Contest??
    7205! Apparently some of us are failing faster than others.
  • What's your current rank in the Valentine's Day Contest??
    Yes, we have decided to turn this farce of a contest being run at a time when many members are not even receiving invitations to surveys - it's now been 23 days since I was last asked to do a survey - into a race to the bottom.
    I was hoping Admin would catch on to the sarcasm of the whole thing, but apparently not. And FYI I broke 7,000! I'm at 7093 today.
  • What's your current rank in the Valentine's Day Contest??
    Ha, got both of you beat! I'm at 6989.
    Guess no Admin is seeing the irony in these posts we've been making?
  • Poll is up
    HAHHAHAHA!!! 3 points! The ONLY points I've had since JANUARY 30th :razz:
  • What's your current rank in the Valentine's Day Contest??
    6260!!!!! I'm overcome with emotion *tears flowing*. I'd like to thank my husband, my parents but most of all Univox for giving me this ONGOING, INTERMINABLE shot at being the biggest loser.

    Whar a bunch of tossers.
  • What's your current rank in the Valentine's Day Contest??
    Proud to report I'm at 5983! Closing in on 6000.
    And, yeah, no surveys since Jan. 30 when I was invited for 42 of them. I went past P.O.'d about a week ago :grin:
  • What's your current rank in the Valentine's Day Contest??
    No surveys since Jan 30, so my rank is 5632. I'm quite proud.
  • Univox Community is wishing you and yours a Happy Valentine's Day. #HappyValentinesDay #Univox
    I'd have a happier day if you would send me some surveys or answer as to why I and others are not receiving any for 2 weeks now.
  • NO surveys - at all
    Yes, I'm being muzzled. They didn't seem to like my last forum response to yet another automated reply regarding the lack of surveys. If they can't take criticism, then they should just address our concerns. Got to think that would be simpler.
  • Admin-Please check my redemption made on Saturday.
    My reply to Admin's automated reply was not posted. Think I'm done with Univox..
  • Admin-Please check my redemption made on Saturday.
    Oh, there is someone working Admin. While you're checking into things, please explain why I and many others have had ZERO survey invitations since Jan 30. And no, I don't want to hear that you have nothing to fit my profile or that I need to update my profile or that I should clear my cache and cookies or that I should email support. Been there, done all of that - and still NO surveys or any answers?
  • What's your current rank in the Valentine's Day Contest??
    Me too. I'm at 5161 in this race for the bottom. And for the same reason.
  • NO surveys - at all
    I got the same reply as you today so I'm re-sending the email every hour. Maybe persistence will pay off.
  • One year on Univox
    And I'm giving you one for the same reason!
  • NO surveys - at all
    So tomorrow how about we all email Univox support - maybe an avalanche of complaints at the same time will get them off their collective butts and make them tell us what is going on?
  • NO surveys - at all
    Haha, I got you beat - I'm 4353 today. A new low, I'm proud to announce :razz:
    Oh, and yeah, STILL no surveys.
  • NO surveys - at all
    How about a prize for the lowest score, Admin?
  • NO surveys - at all
    Hey, SNAP! Me too - 4187 now.
  • NO surveys - at all
    I look forward to winning the Valentine's Day contest. Surely my chances are good as my current ranking is 4175, I'm proud to say.
    Same here - 9 days with no survey invites. And is it a coincidence that we're each of us at exactly 9 days?
    I agree - we've been banned (AGAIN, in my case)
  • NO surveys - at all
    Well, it's Friday, so I guess we can't expect any replies from Admin before Monday. Not that we'll get any then either.
    I have now received 3 canned email responses to my enquiries about the lack of survey invitations. All useless. Good thing there's lots of other legitimate survey sites, because this one is a pathetic joke at the moment.
  • NO surveys - at all
    Nope. Still no surveys, despite my messaging them again yesterday. I got no reply, of course. It's been a whole week now.
  • There is a new Engagement Score contest.
    I'm proud to say I'm ranked 3063, which is impressive considering I've had no surveys since last Thursday.
  • NO surveys - at all
    Well, they've got nerve, I'll say that for them. After now SIX DAYS of having zero invitations, I was cordially invited to participate in the Valentine's Day contest! Wow, I'd love too.
    You do realize you would have to at least ask me to complete a survey or two first? You do know that's how it works??
    I have messaged support again, but I hold out no hope.
  • NO surveys - at all
    Can you imagine what it would be like if they weren't always looking to serve us better?? Or if we weren't such valuable members of the community?
  • NO surveys - at all
    And here it is. I'm impressed it's not the same reply but it's still not exactly reassuring.

    Dear Karen,

    Thanks for reaching out to us!

    We apologize for the inconvenience caused to you. would like to share with you that currently, we don't have surveys matching to your profile. Whenever we have the next batch available survey, we will reach out to you.

    Thanks for your patience and for being a valuable member of the community.

    Always looking to serve you better.

    Thanks
    Team Univox

    Funny how there were LOTS of surveys matching my profile less than a week ago. It's not like I emigrated, moved house or got divorced in the last few days.
    Guess we'll wait and see.
  • NO surveys - at all
    As the one who started this thread, I have also sent an email to support. Am awaiting the response - probably be the same helpful one that was sent to Christine.
  • NO surveys - at all
    Right with you, Melissa. It's now Monday and I still have zero surveys. Not a single invite since Thursday evening.
    So what's going on now, Admin?
