    Standard rules please. No abusive posts, no flaming. Lets just make some money, and have some fun.

    I know, I've got that one too - is it the £7.50 one?

    Very frustrating!

    It was not worth our while, fluffig; we are better than that, right?

    I took it upon myself to investigate a trifle; it had custard, jelly, soggy sponge things...

    Thats got to be a mistake there I think!

    Edit: Study Description
    In this study you will watch a brief video at a specific time of day. You will then return at a specific time to answer questions about the video.

    I hadn't read the description but I dont think I want to leave a study running for the sake of £1.11, just think of all the studies I'd miss while that one was still running. oh wait...

    I didn't do this as you also need to do 14 follow up studies, starting from 6th Dec, and although the rate of pay is good, I can't be certain that I'd be able to complete these. But maybe someone else will definitely be around?

    I struggled with the sliders on the clothing one; they got stuck and would not move more than once, except for the ones that would not move at all. Have messaged researcher.

    it wasn't clear, but you could only move the sliders so the percentages added to 100% .. once you had 100% the other sliders were locked, until you reduced somewhere

    You are right, it was certainly not clear to me, romanovski, thank you. Why are we supposed to be naive/survey demi-vierges while at the same time knowing what researchers mean better than they do? Jeez!

    Just look out for them sliders, zenshi, though you are probably not as thick as me.

    Decided to have a go at this one. You have to complete 11 out of the 14 and you have from 5pm-8am the following day to do them so hopefully completing 11 shouldn't be an issue.
