    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.

    Actually my first thought is that there are age restrictions on some of those because I can see my husbands account and he has done two of the ones hiddenidentity mentioned and he is younger than me so I am wondering if there is an age cutoff been set. I didn't get any of the ones yesterday afternoon either but I did get the Consumer finance one which goes some way to reassuring me that my account has not been flagged. However I won't be totally convinced until I get something else.

    Never feel bad for posting survey alerts, hiddenid'y, that is what this thread is for. I don't think it's that which got the last one deleted... But what do I know? Maybe they don't like the same gang doing all the same surveys, as if that would ever happen; the posts of this a.m. testify to that.

    Thanks, Mrs Soup, really. Already been fed today. Cashed out, green banner appeared, jolly D, quoth I, next few minutes banner has disappeared; jolly quick, what? Is it in Circle? Is it ****! Go back into PA, banner is back. They are toying with me, that is what it is.

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

    They meant was it by Direct Debit or not. The girl I spoke to had a good laugh at that

    However, there isn't usually many surveys at the weekend and the university term is over I think, so it might be not due to pre-screening.
