    Offered 3 different studies tonight. Not for a lot one for 60p one for 50p etc but it's the most studies I've had in quite a while! Hoping this means it's finally picking up again! Prolific is the one site that I find the surveys are worth while.

    Yes, for all the difference it makes when there are no studies anyway, but I just have to check every now and then.

    Never the less, it timed out on me. I sent a message to the researcher saying there seems to be a problem with his study. I could not get it to load after the 1st question.

    Study on internal branding is up, I had to delete my submission though because it doesn't tell you have to have worked in the retail sector in the UK for the past 3 months, until several pages in.

    Prolific are getting really slack on their pre-screening! I should never have been sent that study.

    I messaged as well so at least s/he knows it is her issue and not ours.

    Agreed. I also hate the ones where you have to answer additional questions to qualify.for the study or you get kicked out. This isn't SwagBucks where they can get away with disqualifying you mid-survey. That's what the pre-screeners are for.
