    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.

    I'm still waiting for my bonus. I contacted the researcher earlier in the week (I asked when and if my bonus would be paid).

    "The payment was approved"

    If I haven't been paid my bonus by the end of the week I'll probably contact Prolific.

    You and Your Organisation has some truly appalling grammar in it.

    I realise the researcher may not have English as his/her first language, but surely you'd get someone to check your questionnaire before publishing it?

    Speaking for myself, personally and I am unanimous in this, there is no excuse for bad grammar... Not that I got that study...

    I normally also have zero tolerance for poor grammar, but I have been (and surely will be again next month! ) in the position of desperately trying to meet a rapidly approaching deadline when all hope is lost and your soul is nothing but an ink smudge and a coffee spill on your notebook, and spelling, punctuation and grammar is the first thing to go out the window and the last thing to be checked (not that you have time to check it!)

    Haha, I know that feeling MissPop! I discovered at the last minute (well, 1.30 in the morning) on my last assignment that my references had all gone completely wonky - it got to the point where I didn't care any more!

    Bad gramnar and poor spelling are the worst...

    However, it blatantly was second-language errors rather than incompetence, and I know that after writing and re-writing and altering and changing and three levels of proof reading there were some awful clangers that made it through my university dissertations! The more you fiddle with some things the worse they read and the less you can see it.

    Or in other words, they should have let it be and gone to the pub and it would have read better
