    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 did the study "Personality & Daily Life".

    There was a half a minute remaining at the end of the study, but it said it timed out. Anyone else have issues?

    Yep, I timed out as well with 2 minutes remaining. I'm contacting the researcher.

    Two packaging research surveys up; you can only do one but there's over 70 places left on each, at the time of my post.

    Had never heard of this site before MSE - thank you for the info everyone

    Hi guys,

    Been a lurker here for the 2 weeks or so i have been doing prolific. I was wondering if anyone has had this message after making a withdrawal?

    Hello and welcome. You do have to verify your account before your first payment. Once by email, once by inputting a code you receive in a text message, having provided your mobile number, obviously. You can also further verify it by linking it to your FB account if you have one but this is not necessary. If you have already taken the first two steps, I suggest you email the lovely Kendra via the Contact Us button and ask for her assistance; she is brilliant. HTH.

    Hey MLE
    Thanks for the response and welcome.

    I sent them a quick message so hopefully all will be sorted soon. I'm loving prolific, so don't want to lose it.

    Is everyone still getting the packaging surveys as I appear not to be now which is slightly odd as I've not had any rejected or anything?

    I have not had any, Mrs Soup. I have had no surveys at all today; closest I came was 0/300 places on one.

    Guess it's the same here - it just seems very odd when I've done wine packaging (and don't drink) but today was ready meals which I buy every week- not that the researcher knows that of course.

    I've only done Pet shopping today and will do the last episode of Personality, wellbeing and so on later. Ah well should be part 2 of a longitudinal tomorrow if nothing else.

    I have had nothing today, not a sausage. Hoping for more tomorrow for all of us.
