Earn 15-150 points with new sponsored polls on Toluna!


There’s a new way to earn more points on Toluna; the new and improved sponsored polls!

You can now earn 15-150 points for your participation in sponsored polls, which can consist of more than one question- and you will receive all of the points even if you are screened out before answering them all!

The new polls can be found on the upper right corner of the homepage, or by selecting “Sponsored” from the “Explore” menu. Enjoy!


See you on the site,

    Wow, something good finally comes from Toluna. If we can get points for our opinions as well that would be peachy.

    This is a nice move, thank you! I took the news over to Toluna earlier to cheer people up.

    If you would like to publicly address the issue of what happens about points we, in good faith, *thought* we earned between Sept 2nd and now, in the absence of a formal notice telling us that there were no points to be awarded for 80 word opinions ever again (suspension does not equal termination), make some retroactive recompense to folk, bring all your FAQ and Tutorial info in line with the new system rules, and perhaps even tell us how things are going to work (???) then I for one, would be a happy bunny.
    I am not asking for secret algorithms to be disclosed, I just want to know some basics like whether:
    1) points will ever be awarded for polls? I don’t mind what the answer is, I just want to know one way or the other
    2) if points will ever be awarded for opinion *replies* (otherwise what is people’s incentive for answering those of others???) And if not how will you persuade people to answer each others’?

    thank you very much Toluna, my points were already mounting up quick quickly as I have been lucky enough to take part in quite a few surveys since I joined last month, this was a lovely surprise this morning, thanks very much – a terrific idea!

    Appears my first reply has not passed moderation. I was only quoting former blog posts about opinion length being a factor in earning points. Read into that what you will.

    Please please please clarify the situation of being awarded 100 points for opinions of 80 words or more. Please clear this up, and award the points you owe – the FAQ still states that you can earn points this way, as did an email I received 6 days ago. Sort that out, and I’ll start participating on this site again, as having an incentive for posting thought-through responses built up a very nice community here at Toluna – it would be a shame to see that disappear.

    These polls are having trouble. After I have completed them they still come up as polls that haven’t been voted on yet, it makes it hard to keep track of what polls you have or have not done yet.

  9. Fibre says :

    This seems good move — But I am still utterly confused when participating in a survey and you spend some time on it 5-10 mins suddenly it says that you are nor of the selected “few” — why when they have had and you have given loads of stats to them do they switch you off — with NO points score..

    But the 15 – 150 polls are good..
