    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 don't understand why the places on this are going down so slowly- unless they are doing something to artificially restrict it.

    I did this one, took about 15 mins (and that's with thinking about some of the questions a bit). It required a bit of maths and/or critical thinking but I suspect the actual point was slightly different - I won't say what I think in case that spoils the experiment for others. For £4 (and possibly a bonus, though I think my maximum would only be about £100 - what am I saying, only??) it is well worth doing.

    And they haven't in the past released the places slowly- we've all done the surveys where the server has gone into meltdown much to the apparent surprise of the researcher. I imagine it will turn up for you Smodlet in a bit.
