    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.

    Haha, I know you had issues with them at the start, Smodlet!
    So you can transfer £25 to anyone, and that's how you both get the £5?

    Yep, unless it has changed which I doubt if they are now rich enough to give money away just for entering a compo; you could do that, too if you signed up... Speaking of, I wonder if you can enter more than once if you use a different link. Anyone think to save theirs so we can try that?

    Oh, you do have to link a card to your Circle account rather than just a bank account for the £5 thingy to work; found that out from my second referral.

    No but can't imagine I'll be cashing out this side of Xmas at this rate. I have just had the personality study rejected by Eunike Wetzel, "because you either did not respond to almost all of the items or because the participant ID you entered in our survey did not match the one on Prolific Academic."

    I did answer every, single item and pasted my copied ID in as I always do so how it can not match is beyond me. The study is currently paused with 22 places remaining so I wonder if all 700 submissions will be rejected.

    Is it just me or are researchers getting dumber and dumber this season?

    OK, this is a bit weird; had an email from Circle with a link for other people to use to have another go at the competition. GreyAndGold, surprise, surprise, I cannot figure out how to have another try myself! Please help!

    If anyone wants the link, please PM.

    In other news, that study that was rejected has now been paid. Just occasionally, PA rocks.

    I've also posted my Circle link (in the referrals section) - I don't know if we can all use each others, or if it's a one-shot deal but anyone is welcome to try!
