    Prolific Academic - New Survey Alerts 23rd Dec 15 at 1:12 PM
    Hi all, this is a thread dedicated to alerting everyone to new surveys appearing on the Prolific Academic site.

    It's an interesting and well paid survey site, which also means they're popular and become fully subscribed very quickly!

    I love the site, but find their own survey notifications a wee bit hit and miss and most of us don't have time to repeatedly check the site during the day on the off chance of finding available surveys. We won't all be eligible for the same surveys, but a quick 'heads up' when we do see one may make checking for surveys just a little bit more profitable and worthwhile for each other.

    No rules, just subscribe and post when you see them to spread the joy!

    Additionally, if you're planning on signing up to the site, please be sure to pop over to the referral thread to use someone else's link, before posting your own.

    I had a couple of small ones yesterday and one today about aptitudes for jobs selling cars. Trouble is I don't have a driving licence so I'm pretty sure I'll have messed up their results

    I've done alright this week Smodlet, £14, but had a rubbish one last week. The studies I've done though this week were a couple of baby Oxford packaging ones and the rest had very few places on them.

    Here's to a better week for you next week, happy weekend to all

    I took it upon myself to investigate a trifle; it had custard, jelly, soggy sponge things...

    Hang in there, they always come along eventually, don't they? It's just kinda boring waiting around for 'em, I know, and I appreciate the company and the encouragement, so hope I'm giving a bit back.

    I was having a very quiet week until yesterday when I got several bigger ones and did £12 ish in a day. Another 4.50 today but that includes episode 2 of pet shopping (the saga continues...) - I also attempted the Deception chat one which wouldn't let me through to the chat room so I hope they pay up on that- I kept seeing it appear so assumed they had fixed any technical problems but I waited half an hour with no joy so finished and messaged them.
    I wish it was possible to see what criteria the studies have for participants and some of them look like you should be eligible but they never appear on your login and other completely random stuff does.

    Most of you seem to do way better than me. I'm lucky if I average out at £1 per day. Just sayin'.

    Sound good.
    Do we need to pay £20 for first time registration as participant ?
    Is there any annual fee ?
