    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.

    Yes, Inquisit can be a pita for that. I always end up rushing them because you can't see any other screen so cannot see the clock counting down. Must get myself one of those things that ping such as they have on Bake Off.

    Speaking of pinging, my ping does not seem to be working any more I have just missed out on the last place four times today!
    What is this life, if, sweet wordsmith, we have no time to take the pith?

    Every stew starts with the first onion.

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

    This is where having 2 screens is very useful.

    Well, Galileo was put in prison for saying otherwise, after all and, if it makes you feel any better, I really had to think about it.

    I always highlight my ID and copy to clipboard before starting surveys, then paste into box. It often comes in handy.


    Did anyone receive the third pets survey today? I wondered whether I should have received one.

    I think that I've completed two separate surveys, perhaps I could have missed one, unless there are different batches.

    Third pet survey was definitely last week but mine is showing in manage surveys as still having 9 places left but if you can't see it presumably you can't access it to complete now. Next one is next friday anyway, have my diary entries ready. If I buy anything for my cat I find myself thinking now how can I write three paragraphs about this.

    Thanks Mrs Soup, have just checked Manage Studies, and it appears that I have done three previous studies. It looks like the fourth one will be next week then.

    There's just been a longitudinal one up (so part 2 next week) which I think is full now called Daily Life Encounters, Stephan Merke which is an inquisit study. However it wouldn't accept my prolific ID for some reason, tried loads of times and checked and double checked the ID.

    I've only ever done one inquisit one before so wondered if this is a common problem and others have found it too? I copied and pasted the ID, perhaps it would've been different if I'd typed it in.

    I'm trying to complete a study called 'Daily life encounters'.

    Available Places : 6/119
    Avg. Completion Time : 11mins
    Avg. Reward Per Hour : £4.64/hr
    Maximum Allowed Time : 20mins
    Reward: £ 0.85

    I installed the relevant software, entered my Prolific ID where it told me to 'Please enter my ID' and got a 'The ID you entered is invalid' message.

    I've no idea how so many people have apparently got the study to load!

    I put 6 numbers (a regular code I use for other things but random as far as this task is concerned) - I was told to do that on a similar one some time ago and it worked. You Prolific ID is entered later.

    Not sure if correct but it did work
