    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 - then I went back and clicked on the 'you have an uncompleted submission' and it let me in!

    Is anyone doing Dominant perception styles and getting a message of questionnaire already completed?

    Yes! I kept going round in circles, checking the status on the dashboard etc, reloading the page and eventually it let me in to do it. It crashed my browser when I pressed "open in another window" which is what I thought caused it when I reopened the age, thinking it thought ai had tried to do it twice, but maybe it was something their end.

    Edit to add - it has already been approved. Wow, that was fast!
    My "thanks" button doesn't always work (probably my way out of date ipads fault!) So thank you in advance if it looks like I haven't pressed yours. I've most likely tried to!

    Yes got there in the end, glad it wasn't just me. Possibly several of us sent messages and they did something to fix it.

    Yes, I have replied to their message and queried it, at that point I didn't realise they'd paid me a bonus for it!! So when they reply I will point that out!

    I did another one for them without any problems and they gave me 90p bonus for that one. There was another one which I did half of and then they said I'd already completed the questionnaire so couldn't do it again...as I recall they did they quite a few similar surveys but didn't specify in the details that you should only do one of them etc etc. Anyway, I'll wait and see if they reply.

    I suspect that is by way of partial compensation for the time spent- I got the £1 as well but I had returned the second one myself already to avoid them doing so. Seemed a reasonable compromise to me.

    I would do it if I were you- it really wasn't that difficult- I could nearly have done it myself and I have only a 35 year old O-level in French. It was 8 items and a list of about 10-12 adjectives like doux, masculin etc and you had to say on a scale how much each adjective applied to the item as if it were a person. Pretty certain you would know all the words if you have a degree in French.

    The two I did were different but there was one that was similar which didn't go through, which is fair enough (although they should probably have specified if they didn't want people to do more than one as they did all have different titles).

    Anyway, they got back to me really quickly and said it was a technical error and they have just paid me for it.

    Or is the bonus for the first one that didn't get rejected - have just checked and mine is flagged against the survey they accepted and paid for a few days ago not the second repeated one that I sent back after a lot of grumbling.

    I had a £1 bonus for the one that was rejected and has just been paid, and 90p bonus for the other one, and nothing for the third one which was returned because it was similar/the same as one of the other ones.
