Ending a survey at different times for different survey-takers?
This is not simply a conditional, unless I make every subsequent question conditional on "yes" to "Do you cook". This is awkward and risky. Surely there's an established way to end the survey early for some survey-takers, contingent on responses to particular questions? And, to provide them with an end-message (e.g., "Thanks, your further participation is not necessary")?
Thanks for any help!
How should responsed be saved, when you are in the Demo mode?

...do I set the quota to "0" for the answer "no"?
Jelo is correct, the survey must be activated to test the quota.
Solutions, code and workarounds presented in these forums are given without any warranty, implied or otherwise.
A suggestion to the writers of the LimeSurvey user manual:
Specifically state that a quota can be set to 0. I'd guess that it's more common for a survey designer to want to screen out an entire group of ineligible survey-takers than to want to set some non-zero limit on a group. So, calling the function "Quota" (rather than, say, "Filter" or "Screen") and not providing a screen-all-ineligible-survey-takers example of using it, suggest to the (still-learning) user that using "Quota" is not the way to go. It also makes it hard to find when Google-searching for a way to screen survey-takers, as "quota" is an unlikely term to use. Finally, it would be helpful to explicitly say that Quota use is not testable unless activated.
For the record: The person for whom I'm designing a survey has made a financial contribution. It's the only fair thing to do! Thanks for making LimeSurvey publicly available.

Since the manual is an wiki you can edit the text to help get newbies started.
Screenouts and Limits are both used in studies.
In Limesurvey there is a lot of programmer thinking.
To use a quota of 0 as a screenout is not that strange.
Would be interesting to know how many people are using quotas at all.
Other packages offer a Questiontype "End of Survey / Redirection" and then you
need to set your conditions / filters to screenout.
That would be helpful since not all questiontypes can be used in quotas.
