    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.

    LuSive, you can email Kendra and ask her to return it manually so it does not affect your score. She has told me this in the past. You would, of course, need to explain your reasoning for the request. HTH.

    Yes, it was total garbage, would never let you select the best deal, utter pants, imo.

    I deleted all the letters from my ID and then it let me complete it. Have messaged the researcher about that part.

    The completion code is S9D4V0X3 as I think we all deserve to be paid for it.

    I had the same problem, and did the same as Smodlet by removing all the letters from my Prolific ID. It accepted it then, however when I reported it to the researcher he said I should have just input the first five digits (which includes a letter) of my ID. Too late now, as I have exited the study, but have informed Kendra. I'm sure they can marry up my answers with my ID for payment.

    I agree it was a rubbish study though

    How the hell are we supposed to know that if he does not tell us at the beginning? Sorry, I don't turn on the ESP for 59p.

    I didn't get a code at the end either.

    Did anyone else complete the 'Usability Study for Mobile Devices only' study where you had to guess which screen had the most dots?

    I got as far as the screen telling me I had a bonus of £2.40 and could either keep or donate the bonus to the lab. I couldn't get any further than this page (the researcher said I would still get paid the 0.50 and any bonus).

    Has anyone else been paid their bonus? At the moment I've only been paid 0.50.
