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

    Hiddenidentity, you are on fire, girl! I am in deep tumbleweed. Anyone got a strimmer?

    I never worry about completion codes. I open the study in another window then at the end return to the original screen and press Finished. It then states finished, no code.
    Never had a problem always worked.

    Last week, did anyone else do the study "Photo assignment" where you had to take some photos of the screen.

    It said they award £1 as a bonus payment for sending the photo's. The study has been approved, but I didn't get the bonus. Anyone get the bonus?

    I have just joined prolific academic and was surprised to get my first survey in French. In my profile I said I could speak it but does this happen a lot?

    If you say you can speak it, then they won't filter out studies that are in that language.

    I've told them that I can only speak one language so I'm only eligible for studies in that language. I've seen studies in Greek, German and French though English is the only language that over 5% of participants speak fluently, looking at the demographics.

    So I bet if you speak French fluently you'll have a much better chance of catching those surveys because they'll hang around for longer.

    My husband gets the odd one in French which he apparently speaks. One of the ones he had I could have done with my o level. There aren't many in anything but English though. There is a Greek one around at the moment I think.

    I've just had my first ever weekday with no surveys at all except when my account was flagged. I am now getting a bit suspicious. On the positive side the consumer finance 7 quid one paid out. I like that researcher.
