    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.

    I joined mid-march this year and am on about £450 (including some bonuses) though I think it has been a particularly busy period so I am expecting it to flatten out. I did have two weeks with nothing in that period as my account had been flagged for an unknown reason. I don't know how many studies I have done as it is too many pages to check now, haven't had any rejections so far.

    Has anyone had a study since our thread was killed off?

    Tell me about it, AprilLady, Mrs Soup has made almost as much in less than half a year as I have made in over a whole one. So not tiara grade, me.

    Thanks to you and MLE007, another conspiracy theory shot down (though it could still apply to me )

    I don't think there has been anything much today. I'm expecting the latest 50p one in the 7 day consumer finance study but that's about it.

    Easy way to find out is to log out and watch prolific assistant. It will bring up available surveys, but obviously doesnt sort out what you qualify for.

    Fwiw, i logged out, and there were 3 studies came up. I think its just screening though, as i have been paid for previous surveys twice in the last few hours, i think this would be held if they were planning to ban us all.

    Yeah, I was paid for one. I did wonder about that or is it when you come to cash out, you can't? I tried that, though I am not ready to yet but saw no warning flag. It just seems a little coincidental, is all. Maybe it that is all it is, here's hopiing.

    I've only had my last 1SE study and I'm waiting for the follow up study for consumer finance.

    I didn't have any last Saturday other than the 1SE though I don't think

    Oo-er. I have heard of older posts being deleted because a thread became too long, often because it was taking up too much space due to photos, for instance but how much space could ours have been taking up? And why delete the whole thread? I reckon either one of the newer board guides has an itchy trigger finger or it is cut backs on the part of MSE.

    Thoughts?

    Normal service for me for a weekend, sparse surveys that are full by the time I see them...! I'm definitely not matching Mrs Soup's total anytime soon!

    All the surveys that I've seen when I've been logged out have been obviously not for me anyway - today at a guess I've been the wrong gender, wrong political leaning, wrong employment status, and wrong nationality

    Then you fill in your details, answer the prescreening questions and check for surveys.

    I got into a longitudinal study on emotional regulation which I'm quite pleased with. I really like prolific, I have a psych degree (and recognise some of the names as previous lecturers...) and it's better than answering bland market research questions about washing machines. The only 'downside' is that I recognise some of the deception stuff so I may not be an ideal candidate.
