    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.

    The two I did were different, this time the deciders were strong conservative supporters and it also asked if I voted today. It gave me a choice of completion codes too incase one didn't work (the first one was yesterdays completion code, so I used the other one).

    I did both today so presumably there was yet another version yesterday. I think the experiment bit was randomised anyway because mine were labour in the second one whereas yours were conservative. I'm inclined to leave it and argue the toss with prolific if they reject and affect my rating.

    Yes I got two codes at the end. Where did you use them? I didn't see a box or anything to enter codes. I just got a nocode but I know they usually go through ok. I've saved the other 2 codes just in case it wasn't approved though.

    Anyway, as I couldn't understand what it was supposed to achieve I didn't mind not doing the second survey. Unlike the bowel cancer one which seemed to have an understandable purpose.

    Like smodlet I also like to understand how things work and also look gift horses in the teeth. I don't like doing something if I don't understand the point or where the value is (to me or to anyone else!)

    Am probably just spoilt by the plethora of surveys that have been around recently so am getting choosy!

    Bennett Kleinburg is back again with his Amazon review study. No places at the mo but you can bet people will return it or time out once they find they have to provide links.

    ETA: Actually, there is one place.

    I have never seen this survey before and just returned it so your prediction is correct. It is odd. I do remember answering one of those dashboard surveys saying that I had recently bought an electrical item, but I never said I gave it a particular rating or reviewed it online and the survey said I had said that. Bizarre.

    haven't had any studies today either other than the 40p Attitude study 2 . Very quiet day.

    Guess who foolishly submitted that damned study before getting a completion code. I don't suppose some kind soul could let me know what it was, could they, please?

    The Consumer Study about Online Ratings one, Hermia, this one:

    Available Places : 10/105
    Avg. Completion Time : 6mins
    Estimated Completion Time by researcher: 5mins
    Avg. Reward Per Hour : £7.50/hr
    Maximum Allowed Time : 12mins
    Reward: £ 0.75

    I know it's a hell of a cheek to ask. I will just hope to be paid without the code as it is my own silly fault for forgetting to click on the link at the end.
