Hi, I have noticed plenty of members who have been asking what this "quality score" is on their stats since it has been viewable. Was just wondering if we are going to get an "official" message/forum post explaining what it is/does, as people obviously are curious about this.

I appreciate that it was only just added very recently, so hopefully it will be explained in due time. :)

You gain 1 point per internal offer you complete, you lose 5 points per quality control question you fail on p2s's survey router system before a survey, It was always there, but reset to 100 as it was made public, and likely will result in instant disqualifications or account issues if you lose too many points.

was aware of all of this :p but would rather hear it explained directly from admin so people without this knowledge gained through Shout only can understand it better, that was all. :)

So is the quality score just a number representing how honest you are on internal surveys? and if it is higher will it affect anything besides your "trustworthyness"?

treghost1 has explained it fairly well. Basically we want users to start paying more attention to surveys and make sure all their selections are genuine. It is true that you will be blocked if your score drops very low BUT that doesn't mean users with high scores cannot get blocked also, if we detect that you are consistently failing quality control then your account can also be blocked.

We will give users a few chances to get their act together if they are ever blocked. I reckon a few users have already gotten a ticket reply from me so I hope you got the warning and I won't see you again ;)

To help users please explain the proper way to complete surveys. That can include:

Not choosing random answers
Not rushing
Not pretending to be someone or something else in order to qualify (Advertisers are interested in YOUR feedback)
If they get to a question they cannot answers then they MUST close the survey, never guess or select an random answer
etc etc etc.

It is still quite buggy prime example would be I DQ'd from a survey for giving genuine answers and was still deducted 5 quality scores, why do I get the feeling genuine people will be getting blocked for no reason therefor creating unnecessary hostility. I understand that P2S wants quality answers and members but don't want to see honest people getting blocked because they are getting DQ'd for giving honest answers

I could be wrong but I believe the only ones that count are the ones presented here on the site before the actual survey starts. Quality control questions asked during a survey on a partner site I don't think are counted against your total. Again, I'm not 100% sure but I believe that is what is going on here

I have done surveys and answered the pre qualifying questions correctly and still been DQ'd and it still affected my quality score not sure if it was over quota but I would expect that to not affect it

Yeah, that's why I said I wasn't 100% sure, could be a bug or partners could be relaying something to us and it is getting mixed up
