    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.

    Oh, Ed, send us the link to it, would you, please? Worn out with worry over the cat, just save me a bit of time, pretty please?

    TIA, S x

    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!

    Thank you so much. He is eating quite well, atm and finally, after 84 hours, seems to be recovering from the sedation! Don't think an anaesthetic is even an option any more.

    Best of luck with your gorgeous tigger and please, everyone, let's keep the "healing kitty vibes" coming as they seem to be working for Charlie; Ed's and sonicology's tigs need them, too and I am sending mine to both.

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

    That happened to me, too. Dunno what we're doing wrong however, I just clicked on my name to get to the drop down menu in Circle, applied my code that was emailed because someone used my link and won another £2.88. I just don't understand how this works.

    I doesn't work because you have already claimed your prize via the link I sent you, Eds link is just their version of of the same link. Not sure how you managed to get an extra entry Smodlet because I haven't had any extras entries .

    Thanks, GreyAndGold, but how did you get the link in the first place? You know it takes nothing to confuse me when it comes to technology.

    I got a second go because someone apparently signed up to Circle via my link, I think. Thank you to whoever it was and to you, G&G, for sharing the link in the first place.

    I got the link because someone had posted theirs in a facebook group, I don't know how anyone first found out about it.

    Latest from Alex Fraser regarding the non-payment of our £2 bonuses,

    "Hello,

    I am sorry for the delay. We had to wait for all of the data to be collected and, due to unforeseen circumstances, for extra funds to be deposited into prolific to pay the bonuses. These should hopefully clear this week and I will be able to pay the bonuses.

    Again I am sorry for the delay.

    Kind regards,

    Alex"

    What a surprise.

    Yes, sorry, I think my link was just my ordinary referral link - I copied it from the email confirmation I got from Circle about the competition win, thinking it would be to do with that. Apologies! On the plus side, someone just used it and I got £5, so that was a nice surprise!

    Good for you, Ed. Did you get another code to enter the competition as well?

    Shucks, mikep22, I got a study that you didn't? Next they will be telling me the world is flat! Didn't post as hardly any places left, soz, y'all. It was quite interesting, too but since only 40 places, could well recur.

    Well, I've already done half as many surveys in October as I did in September total, so hopefully they're picking up again now?
