    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.

    ... Well, I'm right here! Thank you for wondering, Lady Soup, and especially for all your help with the Circle of Hell! Got another £5 from some sweet person who used my link the other day. Yay!

    Finally get a study, enter my Prolific Id and next page says 'Well done! You've successfully completed the demo study'. I'm left with 2 options, 'Take a real study now' and 'Or go to your account'. First option just says that i have an open submission, and the second option just takes me to the Accounts page.
    Contacted the researcher, but no response after 30 minutes so i had to return it.

    I got three studies yesterday that all went blank, with no completion codes and no indication that the data actually went through. I don't have an adblocker or a scriptblocker on for prolific, so I don't know what's going on. I ended up returning them all because I don't want my score being affected negatively, but I missed out on a few quid

    I've had loads of NoCodes all through the PA process, and I've always been paid. So long as you've actually finished the study it looks like the researcher can confirm that you did. I certainly wouldn't return a study just on that basis. Especially as it is unclear what, if anything, happens if you have a study rejected.

    It has been known for researchers to reject a study on the basis of no completion code although, according to PA Stephen, it is not a valid reason for them to do so. HTH.

    If it helps at all on the rejection issue my husband has recently had two rejections (because he couldn't be bothered to return it himself basically) and it has had no impact on his rating - he has done about 150 studies so far and is still 100/100. Anecdotal evidence but it suggests that it might be worth chancing the odd rejection so long as you have done a fair number of studies successfully. Probably a less good idea if you have completed a smaller number.

    Y'all know that speech recognition study I and the researcher had the fun and games with? Dude has just paid me! , Elliott. I hope you guys get a chance to do it as it paid £8... I wasn't going to tell you that until I'd got it.

    I don't have a ping- haven't figured out how to make it work.

    What I wouldn't give for a nice Oxford packaging survey just now.

    Did you get a completion code for that, MLE007? I did not.

    I was given the outcome but no completion code here, either. Have messaged the researcher but am wondering if this is a PA problem as it seems to be happening a great deal atm.

    Has anyone else done the study 'What do you Like'?

    I did one of the studies. There is a second study 'What do you Like v2.3 SF Survey', but the questions seem to be the same as the other study. So I guess I should return it?

    I think it's a PA problem, it happens more to me if I don't open the study in a new tab.
