    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.

    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

    All right. Obviously none of you have ever made a typo. I bow to your superiority.

    ETA: Well done for passing the attention check.

    I keep just missing them today- annoyingly they appear on screen with 1 or 2 places left - when you click through its full but still appears on your login screen with places available.

    Yes, I too seem to have a knack for just missing them today, Mrs Soup and I think the cognitive one for £3 would be interesting. Hmph!

    That must be a pretty small pack, mikep22... Small beer, in fact.

    Cheers, darlin'.

    I would have liked the cognitive one- I do like a quiz. Should get the last one of the longitudinal election ones from Tara whatsit today, I think a few of us were doing that. Then hopefully the whole lot will get approved fairly sharpish.
