    'Twas but a suggestion, fair AprilLady. After all, it's who you know...

    A propos of not a lot, it is now over a month since I cashed out. I have just barely got to £20 today but I want my flippin' bonus! The gods know how long it will take me to get to £20 again. Where's my studies?

    Thanks but I already messaged him/her on Saturday and posted the reply. They need to get more money, then load it into PA... Clearly they have a very low opinion of participants if they thought most of us could not tell the difference between tools and utensils.

    I will leave it another week or so, then consider asking PA to intervene as so far it's, "this week, next week, sometime, never." False advertising, imho.

    There's a study on mental wellbeing and flexibility for £2 but it has crashed on me, grr. I have emailed the researcher to see if (s)he can help. Anyone else had a problem?

    Oh phew, glad it isn't just me! I hope we are given the opportunity to re-do it, I'll be a bit miffed to miss out on it.

    He/she (what is with these non-gender specific named researchers recently?) had better not reject any submissions. Can't you just tell it's the beginning of the academic year? I think a few of them need to take a course in how to load studies/budget for bonuses. Not impressed.

    I too had to return the study as incomplete due to the error.I have just tried again via the manage studies page and the study is now sown as paused by the researcher.
