    Prolific Academic - New Survey Alerts July 2017 14th Jul 17 at 3:15 PM
    So after the old thread disappearing, this seems to be the new thread for discussion relating to prolific academy.

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

    Got enough to cash out again, but something strange is going on with Circle & Prolific. Prolific said I had £22.08, cashed out and it said they were sending me £22.03 and on the email it says I will receive £22.024.

    Sure, it's only pennies - but it's going to add up over many payments. Who is stealing them- Prolific or Circle?

    Anyone else get the 'Familiarity & Risks of Technology 2' from an email alert? It ended very strangely and abruptly for me and with a NOCODE. Seem to be lots of problems with surveys at the moment!

    If you say so but it uses their logo so I imagine it is there with their permission ergo their responsibility, imho. Whatever; sometimes it works fine and sometimes it doesn't. Seems to be about fifty-fifty for me.

    I found the visual ping pingless, m'self. At least the PA assistanty thing works, when it has anything to ping about. Guess we all have different ping experiences.

    Anyone have issues with Day 4 of the clothing study? I had to do it four times to get the completion code! It was hiding in the lower, left hand corner and disappeared before I could write all of it down the first three times. The researcher does say he/she thinks there are technical issues with this installment; they are not wrong.

    Yes I did too Smodlet, I did it twice and just copied and pasted the completion code from the address bar in the end, glad it was only a short study though and not a "meet bob" which makes it slightly better when repeating a study
