    I signed up and received a survey a couple days ago....but don't know where the points are I thought we were to earn for doing them...??? - 3/2/2010   5:33:02 AM
    I've signed up and taken a survey, but no Sparkpoints. - 3/1/2010   4:38:43 PM

    I got my points, and here's what I did!!
    I also tried everything suggested in the Blog, but didn't receive my points, and I was already receiving surveys.
    At the bottom of about any spark page is a little hyperlink called Helpdesk. It takes you to frequently asked questions. There is a little box at the top of the page called something like view all FAQ's. When you open that page, at the very bottom of the page it asks you if you found your answer, otherwise, you can email the spark support team. I copied and pasted a copy of my confirmation email into the comment area and included a brief description of the problem I had, and my Sparkpeople ID. This morning, I had my spark points. Thanks Spark Support Team!!!! - 2/25/2010   12:26:36 AM

    I signed up at the beginning of February. So far no survey. I sent a Feedback email to indicate I had not received any survey emails. I indicated my concern was whether I was still considered active status. I have not received to my Feedback. - 2/24/2010   12:19:59 PM

    i joined two days ago, got and answered a survey today. but, alas, still no sparkpoints. it would be nice to know why. - 2/24/2010   9:11:11 AM

    I signed up, received the spark points, have not received any surveys as of yet. It may be completely unrelated but with in an hour of signing up I started to receive so much other junk and spam email for every sort of enhancement product. It has become so bad that I've had to change my junk email filters and some stuff is still getting through but at least it is not as bad. I tried to find a place to email the Spark team directly to make them aware of this but was not able to find an email address. - 2/24/2010   7:35:31 AM

    I signed up, got sparkpoints, but don't think I ever got a survey.
    Does the survey come FROM sparkpeople? I may have deleted something from an external source thinking it was spam. I'm not sure exactly how this works.

    Thanks! - 2/24/2010   7:13:48 AM

    I just signed up and received an email with a link to confirm and it worked. I got the survey points; they appear at the bottom of my SparkPoints page. - 2/22/2010   10:40:21 AM
  • 121
    I signed up, got confirmation, NO points, NO surveys, but LOTS of spam asking me to see if I qualify for a grant, etc. I didn't like sharing my information and I should have followed my gut!! - 2/21/2010   11:57:58 PM
  • 120
    Signed up, received confirmation email, but no points or other surveys. - 2/21/2010   11:07:14 PM
  • 119
    I have signed up twice too. I even went and tried to copy and paste the link into the same browser as my sparkpeople page and nothing. Just wanted to let you know that the possible fixes didn't work. Thanks for looking into the situation. - 2/21/2010   9:05:51 PM
    I have signed up 2wice nothing - 2/21/2010   7:47:06 PM
  • 117
    I completed the survey, received an e-mail but there was no link to open up in the e-mail. - 2/21/2010   6:36:38 PM
  • 116
    Me too, I guess it is a waiting game for the points and the survey to come - 2/21/2010   4:21:23 PM
    I guess like every one else with the small few exception got the emails been confrimed but NO anything else. - 2/21/2010   8:36:58 AM
  • 114
    No points, no surveys, nothing! Guess we'll all just have to wait and see what happens next :) - 2/21/2010   8:30:53 AM

    I'm in the same boat. Joined but no points or surveys. - 2/21/2010   8:06:15 AM
  • 112
    Has anyone received any surveys??????? - 2/21/2010   6:17:38 AM
  • 111
    I have joined, got a confirmation email saying that I am a member of the survey team and didn't get my spark points for joining - nor have I heard anything beyond the joining. - 2/21/2010   1:38:32 AM
  • 109
    I'm with the others who joined, got the confirmation and took care of that, and haven't gotten my points or any further communication. - 2/20/2010   11:46:28 PM
  • 108
    I joined and haven't heard anything either. So much for surveys. I'm not feeling all that good about loading my info into an off site location and not hearing ANYTHING back. I don't like jumping through hoops. I'm not that well trained of a seal but I have to admit I don't like this whole survey "take my info" black hole idea. I'm opting out as soon as I can figure out how to do that. - 2/20/2010   10:50:43 PM
  • 107
    I have joined, been accepted & confirmed "twice". There is no indication that I am a part of the survey team...no points, no surveys. - 2/20/2010   9:23:26 PM
  • 106
    I am glad to see I am not the only one -- I have "joined" the survey team twice now and confirmed and still no indication that I have actually joined by accruing points for joining or any surveys sent - 2/20/2010   8:43:30 PM
  • 105
    This is weird .. a glitch or we weren't accepted??? - 2/20/2010   5:48:24 PM
  • 104
    I've tried to join three times, but the confirmation email has never come in. I've checked my cookie settings and spam filters and junk folder, and there's no evidence that anything has been attempting to come through. So I can't tell where the glitch is. When I sign up for things on other websites, the confirmation emails have heretofore arrived without problems (including my initial SP account, of course.) - 2/20/2010   5:41:35 PM
    I joined as well but no points and no further info. - 2/20/2010   5:29:43 PM
  • 102
    I also signed up - got my confirmation - no points - no further information - would like to participate but am thinking it just isn't ready yet. hope it pans out I think it would be a great way to learn so much more about the opinions of other sparkers - 2/20/2010   4:05:20 PM
  • 101
    I am like everyone else or mostly everyone. Signed up, got my confirmation back but never got any surveys or points. I thought maybe some kind of a hoax. Still waiting for points and surveys. - 2/20/2010   3:15:25 PM
  • 100
    Can you put the sign-up/registration form on a secure server? I avoid putting my personal information on unsecure sites. - 2/20/2010   2:15:23 PM
  • 99
    I have the exact same problems that everyone has listed here!

    No points....No surveys! - 2/20/2010   1:26:21 PM
  • 98
    Using same browser, cookies enabled, but like everyone else I got registered, confirmation email, but no points or surveys. Hope the bugs get worked out.

    Not trying to beat a dead horse, just figured you'll want to know how long the problems continue. - 2/20/2010   1:24:55 PM
  • 97
    I signed up, got approval email. Like everyone else, no points, nothing more. - 2/20/2010   12:57:31 PM
  • 96
    OK, I've tried everything suggested several times and still no points. I do have a confirmation (actually several now) and multiple welcome messages.
    My browser is Mozilla Firefox if that makes any difference. - 2/20/2010   12:26:39 PM
  • 95
    Someone is sharing info some where. I used to only recieve one spam/junk mail a month, if that often, now I am seeing at least three a day in my spam folder. If SP isn't sharing, then perhaps someone at survey.com or realage is. My service provider allows a buffered email address; planning to use that method with affilliate sites. Spam doesn't trouble me as much as the fact that the site requires your mailing address, - 2/20/2010   12:25:15 PM
  • 94
    Hm...maybe some more bugs have to be worked out? I received a confirmation e-mail after I did it, but was awarded no points. That is fine as long as I get to still be a part of it! But I haven't received a thing since then. Hope everything works out! =) - 2/20/2010   11:07:40 AM
  • 93
    I also joined. Received the initial points and the confirmation email. So far nothing. I just tried to use the link in the blog and received the message the page could not be found. - 2/20/2010   10:21:52 AM
    As with most here, I signed up and received a confomation email and nothing else. Do not waste your time. - 2/20/2010   9:14:10 AM
  • 91
    I signed up, got no points, no emails, nothing. I did get the confirmation email with the link, but when I clicked it, nothing really happened. I no longer have the email, so I can't go back to it and copy and paste the link either. :-( Should I try rejoining? - 2/20/2010   9:11:29 AM
