    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.

    Has anyone ever chased PA for payment when it gets to three weeks and a day and they still have not paid? I was hoping to cash out today and have one study which has still not been paid, which is over three weeks old.

    Every other time, they have always paid me on time.

    I haven't chased, but I do have one that's overdue. I did one that was for £5 which was part 1 of a 2 parter for £10 for the 2. It was really clear and said at the beginning that part 2 would be 12 weeks after the first and payment would only be made after both parts had been done. I assumed that due to the automatic approval at 21 days that a payment would be made but obviously they have made specific arrangements with with prolific as it was on the 10/2 but still not paid. I'm clearly not the only one as the researcher sent out a message yesterday as people had been asking about the payment. I am annoyed but don't feel I can do much about it as it WAS clearly stated that that was the arrangement. It doesn't really go with the ethics that prolific seem to stand by that we should get reasonable payment as it was about 40 minutes work that was put in but we have to wait 3 months for payment which will only be paid if the second part is completed. Doesn't sit right with me.

    Thank you, GreyAndGold. My one is only a poxy 70p but there were no conditions attached, it is just plain overdue. All my other pending ones are two weeks later than that one so I was waiting until today to cash out purely for this one. Not impressed, PA although this is the first (or second?) time they have failed to pay on time.

    Anyone else get an error message with that one? After all the consent pages etc?

    EDIT: Opened it in a new window and it worked!

    This study is asking you to make a public post on Facebook and screenshot it into the survey. Is that 'legal' by Prolific rules?

    I think they were two different studies, as the first FB one kept popping up for me this morning and the other one was the one I couldn't get to load initially.
    I turned down the first one - didn't want to post anything on FB for it!!

    They're different studies- I did both, but I am very unhappy about the Facebook one paying £1. I have submitted a query to Prolific about it- as I don't believe there's anyway they could have obtained informed consent, based on what they later ask you do to.

    Was that the one this morning where they asked you to take a screengab? If so I didn't see a problem with what they asked. Or was it the one that asked to you friend a fake FB profile? I did that a couple of days back.

    Culpepper - the inquisit one that was up just should have paid you £1.25. It did for me anyway!

    Fake a status update and tag a friend in it, then upload a screenshot. That wasn't discussed in the instructions which only said you'd need to take a screenshot. I find what they were asking morally questionable, without prior knowledge in advance. Plus, they gave no information on how that screenshot would be used or stored and as far as I'm concerned that's in breach of informed consent. Any University Ethics board would agree.

    Oh OK, in that case I suspect there have been slightly different versions going up during the day. The one I did you didn't have to tag a friend- you just had to make it public (which I did just long enough to take a screenshot) and upload the image to the survey. I deleted the post immediately and I've been paid so presumably it was OK.
