September 20 ARGUMENTS

Hello everyone! Let’s talk a little bit about a more sensitive matter: Arguments.  They say that “Immature people always want to win arguments even at the cost of relationships, but mature people prefer losing an argument just to uphold a relationship”. Weather we like it or not we all have times when we argue, it’s the social aspect in us that, at times, makes us do it. So we were wondering, what do you do in an argument? Do you have any tips or tricks to winning an argument? Create a topic and tell us all about it. Participate in our contest and win guaranteed points.

Here’s how this will work:

– Create a topic with the title “Arguments”

– Add your thoughts on the matter in the “your own opinion” section of the topic

– You must include a photo or video in your content

– You will receive a bonus on your content for 1000 points.

*This contest will be open until September 25, 2017 at 10 AM EST. 

See you soon,

Toluna Team

*Promotion rules: Only one topic per person will be rewarded. The topic must have the title as given by the Daily Theme Contest post, and must be created within the time frame. Open to US and Canada only. Members will earn a 1000-point rank up bonus or direct credit to their account. Points will be awarded to winners within 24-72 hours after contest close. Posts must not contain any language that is obscene, insulting, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, libelous, untrue, misleading or invasive of someone else’s privacy. Toluna reserves the right to review all posts for content, and withhold bonus points from any user violating the rules mentioned above

Shiver Me Timbers! Who’s your favorite pirate?

It’s National Talk Like A Pirate Day so of course Toluna needs to get in on this fun. From Caption Hook to Long John Silver, pirates flood our TV and movie screens with the most dramatic and entertaining characters.

Who is your favorite pirate character?

We loved seeing Captain Jack Sparrow visit this hospital in Canada and hang out with the kids for a day. I have to say, for this moment, Captain Jack Sparrow may be my favorite. Take a look at the children’s faces… he may become your favorite after watching this video too!

 

Weekend Contest on School Supplies Update.

Hey everyone!

Let us start by saying just how amazing and eloquent you all are! The contest was a success and it has collectively generated more than 800 different opinions.

We loved going through them and seeing just how passionate you all are about education and the chances kids get towards having a great life.

All members have been credited with the promised 500 points for participation!Weekend Opinions COntest

Furthermore, BigOreo and Pdnr are our lucky 5000 points winners. Their opinions gathered the most likes!

Once again, and from a personal standpoint, I’m so happy to see how much you’ve all engaged with this. You had amazingly touching opinions, brilliantly argumented economic opinions, pretty much all aspects of education were covered.

This is another reason why the Toluna.com community is splendid! Your opinion does matter!

Moving forward there will be more “food for thought” weekend opinion contests. Looking forward to read all of them!

Stay tuned, and stay curios!

 

How about what?

ICYMI the “cash me outside” girl just landed herself a record deal. Yep, we can’t believe it either. In case you don’t know who this “star” is, take a look at this Dr. Phil clip.

 

This 13 year old girl was on Dr. Phil because her mother can no longer control her. During her segment she tells the audience to “catch me outside, how about that” except it comes out as…. “cash me ousside, how bou dah“. Now she is famous and has a record deal because of this one line.

What do you think about all of the “reality stars” today? It seems anyone can become famous for literally saying anything nowadays.  Do you prefer watching the reality drama of people such as “cash me outside” girl or do you miss the days of actors and musicians actually becoming famous for their talent?

Leave your opinion on our Toluna Team Topic and join in on the conversation!

Rewards Processed September 15th Update

Hello everyone,

We’re writing this post to let you know that the rewards processed on the 15th of September have been uploaded with a slight glitch in the code. This means that whenever you tried accessing them you would be re-routed to your account settings page.

With that said, we are very happy to let you know that the codes have been re-uploaded and the matter should, by now, have been fixed.

As such, you may now try accessing your reward and enjoy it at your own leisure. Keep in mind that, in order for the new codes to be displayed, please do a clear sweep of your browser associated files (simply press ctrl+shift+delete), then log in to your Toluna account and get your reward.

Should this not work for you, do get in touch with our help desk, and make sure you submit a screenshot of the error- this will greatly expedite the process and allow our help desk team to escalate the matter with top priority.

Thank you so much for being active members and for your understanding.

 

Where do you log into Toluna?

You can take surveys pretty much anywhere. On the go, at home, in a coffee shop… anywhere! How often do you take surveys while in your pajamas, laying around in bed? You can’t get much better then comfy clothes while making money, right? Well, for Youtuber Dutch Braid, taking surveys in bed is just one of the ways she uses Toluna. She even takes surveys… in the bathroom!

Take a look at this awesome video from Dutch Braid about Toluna and head to the site and share what’s your favorite log in location?

Weekend Opinions Contest – School Supplies

Hey there! School started, and well, our little ones’ bags are getting flashier, brighter, but sometimes also heavier; the roller backpacks are a thing it seems- but why not make the backpack lighter, instead of just making it easier to carry with you.

So, we wanted to know your opinion, we wanted to see what do you think about schools supplies? What makes sense for the little ones to carry, and what should be changed or what is obsolete?

Goodbye Gifties Contest

Hello Everyone,
Sadly, all good things must come to an end, and so Toluna has decided it’s time to retire our Gifties program. However, we are not looking at it with sadness but with excitement for the new things to come!
To celebrate the removal of Gifties from the Rewards Centre, we have come up with a little game that we hope you’ll enjoy.
Through the month of September, Gifties will be slowly deactivated. Each time a bundle of Gifties is deactivated, the Toluna Team will post a topic inviting you to name the removed Gifties. If you name them all correctly, you’ll be one of 10 winners. Stay tuned, as a new topic can open at any time!
So, what will you win?
For each topic, the first 10 members to answer correctly will receive 1000 points each.

On top of that, at the end of the month, the 3 members who answered correctly the most often will also receive a surprise prize!
The first topic will be posted on Wednesday, 7th September. Follow the Toluna Team and keep an eye on your notifications!
