    So after the old thread disappearing, this seems to be the new thread for discussion relating to prolific academy.

    Standard rules please. No abusive posts, no flaming. Lets just make some money, and have some fun.

    Sadly, got a job that doesn't allow me to stop working and do studies whenever, so I had to return it, but hopefully others have nicer bosses than me,

    I'm still not seeing many surveys at all. Think I have done only 4 in October one of which was a follow up to an earlier one.

    Ref # 1560 - It's good to know someone actually has to work at work, Merlins Beard. I wish to God I'd had a job like some of the people on here seem to have, where I did a few minutes here and there and mucked about on the internet the rest of the time; at least, that is the impression I get.

    Every stew starts with the first onion.
    I took it upon myself to investigate a trifle; it had custard, jelly, soggy sponge things...

    Crikey, Mrs Soup, even I have had more than that. 12 + 2 I returned so far this month. Good luck to all of us (except those who struggle to fit in all the studies between work breaks )

    P.S. Where is our ****ing bonus from Alex Fraser? This is beyond a joke; I want to cash out tomorrow and have been holding out for that.

    Mrs Soup, I think we established before that my digs were not aimed at you; I am merely jealous and sick that I spent so much time working and worrying about what the bosses thought. More fool me.

    I am glad you got a study. Here's to plenty more for all of us.

    I think you'll find that's a crown, mikep22, rather than a tiara... And it would be nice if you could bring us some surveys rather than hogging them all to yourself, please, your Royal Worshipfulness. TIA.
