I have not been active for a while and now there is no points (money) in my panel account. Why?

The points do become inactive on the account if the panelist has not been active for a certain amount of time. A record of the points is still there, they just do not show on the balance. To reactivate the points, you must send an email to kontakt(at) If you have been inactive for a longer periode of time, your registration in the panel may have been deleted.


Why is there a negative on my account?


Please keep in mind that Cint (the comapny that sends you the surveys AND pays you for answering them) reserves the right to deny incentives, remove panelists and deny service to anyone. All invitations are sent based on a proprietary sampling algorithm. Such algorithm will not favor any individual respondent over another.


Negative incentives can occur when someone completed a survey in a manner deemed inappropriate (bad or untruthful). We will not share with you which questions proved to be problematic for our clients. Below are some ways clients define “bad” or “untruthful” responses


•Survey Speeding


Every survey executed has an estimated time to complete. If you complete a survey in a time frame that does not fall within the range that is acceptable you will not qualify for the survey, receive an incentive and may be terminated from the panel.


•Inconsistent or Inaccurate Answers

If you provide answers that are not accurate and or inconsistent in any manner whatsoever you will not qualify for the survey, receive an incentive and may be terminated from the panel.


•Red Herring questions

Clients, at times, will put questions in the survey multiple times or demand that you choose a specific answer to ensure you are being truthful and/or reading the entire survey question. If our client should find that your responses are acceptable as per the red herring directive you will not qualify for the survey, receive an incentive and may be terminated from the panel.


•Open End Questions

At times clients will have a section within a survey that requests respondents to fill in their answers by writing them in, rather than selecting an answer from a set of pre-identified responses. If a response in Open Ended question is considered to contain language that is inappropriate, non-sensible, or not fitting for the question you will not qualify for the survey, receive an incentive and may be terminated from the panel.

I tried to log into my Triaba Panel account, but instead I logged into the account of another panel that I am also a member of. How is that possible?

Triaba (Join Survey Panel) is a member of the Cint OpinionHUB (former Cint Panel Exchange (CPX)), and if you are a member of other panels that are also in the OpinionHUB network, it is possible to log into these panels from the Triaba website and this site. You need to use the correct username and password for your Triaba Panel account in order to log into the correct panel account.

Triaba Panel and Join Survey Panel on Facebook - can I join?

Yes of course. Members of the facebook-group can win a gift-card worth 250 NOK every month. Members must have responded to at least one survey that particular month to participate

When I click on the survey link, it says that the survey is closed/ or that my quota is full, why?

Survey closed means that one of the following has occurred: The survey has been completed. Normally surveys are active for 2-7 days. The desired number of answers has been collected for this survey. Some surveys automatically close due to inactivity, typically after 10-15 minutes.


Quota full means that the survey is full of respondents within the targeted range. This can be either before the start of a survey, which is normally indicated as closed, or sometimes in the early stages of a survey where certain criteria within the survey becomes filled. This normally varies depending on the rate any given survey is responded to and the overall amount of responses needed by different people to fill a quota. Surveys where you receive “Quota Full” do not count as fully completed and incentives are not rewarded as the information is not used.


Why Do I Get Moved From One Survey To Another?

Surveys are sent automatically when your profile matches the requirements of the survey. However, there will be times when the survey is full or you are screened out and instead of terminating you from the survey the system automatically looks for other surveys that match your profile. In this way you have the opportunity to participate in another survey.



I Get An Error On The Survey

An error can occur on a survey for a couple of reasons.

1. If cookies are not enabled the survey will not recognize you as the respondent when you reach the end page of the survey and you will receive timed out. Please make sure that you have your cookies enabled. For information on how to enable your cookies, please contact you computer administrator.

2. When a survey is left open for an extended period of time the browser session expires and you will be timed out from the survey. In this case it is not possible to start the survey again or for a new link to be sent.


Why Do I Not Get Any Surveys?

Surveys are sent automatically when your profile matches the requirements of the survey. We recommend that you fill in your profile with as much information as possible. That way it will be easier to match your profile to surveys that suit you.


When you sign up for surveys, you must validate your e-mail address. If you don't do this, you will never receive any surveys.


You can also check your spam-filter to see if any of the survey invitations from Cint and Triaba have been market as spam. If so, you must mark them as safe.



Why Do I Get Asked The Same Questions Twice?

We always endeavor to find the right survey for you. There may be times that you are asked the same question more than once – once in our pre-screening phase (where we are looking for a survey to match your profile), and once in the actual survey itself (where we are verifying that you meet the survey’s criteria). Although it might seem like an inconvenience or a mistake that you are asked the same question more than once – rest assured that it isn’t and please bare with us through this quality process.

This process does two things:

a) it gives us a better chance of finding a survey for you.

b) provides better quality data to our clients who are looking for a certain type of person

I Receive An Error “You have returned to the system with an incorrect identification number or status code. (006-002)”

If you receive this error message please email support at or to



I Receive An Error “Database connection error. Please contact the system administrator for assistance (007-004) and/or (001 - 001)”

If you receive this error message please email support at or to


What Does Screen out meens?

A screen out occurs when you are outside the target group for a given survey. Rather than consuming your time on answers that cannot be used the survey finishes early (normally within the first few questions). This can happen from time to time even if you have originally been selected to take part as some surveys require specific information. Surveys where you receive “screen out” do not count as fully completed and incentives are not rewarded as the information is not used.



I Receive An Error Message “The system is currently experiencing a high amount of requests, please try again”

On rare occasions there is a high volume of people trying to answer surveys at the same time and you will receive the error message “The system is currently experiencing a high amount of requests, please try again”. This is a temporary problem that will be resolved when the load on the system decreases. We suggest that you wait to access the survey and try again in a short while.



I Recieve An Error “You are attempting to enter through an invalid entry link. We apologize for the inconvenience

If you receive this error message please email support at or to

If you have responded to a phishing email and provided any personal information, or if you think someone has used your account without permission, you should immediately change your password and security questions.

You should also report it to PayPal immediately and they will help protect you as much as possible.
