    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.

    Currently waiting for audio to load and it's taking more than the stated time, so not sure if survey is working...

    Glad it worked for some, I just got an error message and told to contact the researcher. It might be because I'm on a Mac. A lot of times the software isn't compatible.

    Is there any way of getting a text alert or similar when a survey becomes available?

    A study on secure identity for £3

    https://www.prolific.ac/studies/57bb4acac7f84d0001ced849

    However they require you to input your UK passport, UK bank account and UK driving licence or marriage certificate details!!!!!

    I don't think so.

    Ha ha, crosspost! I just reported this one to prolific as I don't feel at all comfortable with it.

    I love PA but they've had a history of website/system problems in the year I've been a member and I wouldn't care to entrust their system with any of the documentation info that they need for that particular study.

    I don't have an unexpired passport and no driving licence/marriage certificate/CCJ at all so I wasn't going to do it anyway

    Exactly - and I have no way of knowing where my data could end up. Although it's most probably legit, I'm very surprised they allowed this study but I guess they don't necessarily have the time to vet everything before it goes out.

    50 people did choose to take the study though ...... the lure of £3, eh?

    Did anyone here do the study '4+ DAYS, 10 MINUTES PER DAY: Long-term engagement with an impulsivity test (IV)'.

    It says it takes 10 minutes per day, but it took about half an hour or longer even though I went fast, so I ran out of time and got the 'Uh, something went wrong' message at the end of the study. Did anyone do this study within the allotted time?

    The phishing-style one has been killed now

    We are investigating this study for invasion of privacy. We have actually stopped it. Please don't give any personal details to researchers.

    It took me about ten minutes to do the test and a couple of minutes for the survey.

    The survey that has been pulled was odd. It said it was to test a government website. If the government commissioned it you would think they would be a bit more sensitive to privacy issues.
