    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.

    ... But if you mention one brand of white goods, movingon, you need to mention all the others; no advertising on here, remember? Just trying to make a hot point.

    Welcome back, fluffig.

    As far as I'm concerned, you have missed b*gger-all. The tumbleweed is turning to dust. I am getting quite fed up and would like some studies, please.

    Yes, it has been higher in the past - but it only stands to reason that over the summer months there will be less surveys available (sadly). However I am steadily getting 20-30 a month which is far more then any other site.

    I had a researcher today tell me they couldn't find my data from a survey- haven't had that before. I had a completion code and advised her roughly what I had written in the free text question that was in the survey and she has now paid so presumably has identified my responses.

    At the risk of sounding like Stannis Baratheon, it's fewer. I am getting far fewer studies than you, mikep22, though I am happy for you.

    Maybe its as I am a lecturer myself I know that all unis will be pretty much out of action until october, so to get anything right now is a bonus.

    Thank you so much for that, Chrisv.

    If it's not too radical a suggestion, maybe buy another bottle opener on the way home? I'm sure you don't need to be told about resilience, mike; two is one, one is none, right?
