Are you a Buxr addict? Take a poll and win $50!

submitted on June 13, 2010 by YanBz in "Member's Lounge", last updated on April 7, 2014 by YanBz
Do you think you suffer a case of Buxr addiction? Take the poll below and add up your score by using the number located in parenthesis in front of each answer. How much did you get?

Less than 25 - Its okay, you can handle it for purely recreational use.
26 to 40 - You’re living on the Buxr addiction edge, but still in control.
41 or more - Time to start seeking personal therapy.


The poll will close on June 20, 2010 and a random answer will get awarded $50 (by Paypal or Amazon gift card). Your answer choices do not affect your chances to win. Smile
Thanks to midget for the idea and to Solstice and other dedicated Buxrites for the question tips!

      Ditto on the last question. It's interesting that over half of the respondents so far don't know about Chinnam.

      Add another to #7. "I should check Buxr from my Blackberry/Android/iPhone/iPad/or other handheld portable device."

      And #8 for me, is definitely 3. Razz

      I hope in the future, that poll results can put a * next to your answers. Wink

        Site is not very BB friendly. Hopefully http://m.buxr.com will come someday. Cause I would check Buxr from my phone, in fact I have tried.

      26 here. I go weeks now without even logging in. Used to be a lot of really good deals. It seems(to me personally) the amount of deals has gone up, but the quality of deals has gone way down.

      When I first signed up, I would have had a higher score.

        There are ways of attempting to cheat on Buxr.

        However, no matter how clever, the naughty people always get caught.

        Its probably better that those ways not be outlined, else somebody may attempt them again.

      I can't believe more people didn't answer "Develop a facial twitch and begin thinking of sharp implements." on the Chinnam question. Between his cheating, inability to type/spell, rudeness, and all of his stupid "friends", you would think more people would want to inflict pain. Twisted Well I guess it's good that the Buxr community isn't violent for the most part.
