    I cashed out at lunchtime today, and the money was in my Circle account within an hour or so.

    Anyone doing the racism in the workplace study - at the end it asks you to select either completion URL or completion code - you need to copypaste those, because if you just select the one you want and press okay the survey just ends!

    It did state the completion code was in the last question at the beginning, hope you got it OK.

    I know, I've got that one too - is it the £7.50 one?

    Very frustrating!

    I'm consoling myself with the fact it is a lousy hourly rate... £7.50 for an average completion time of 110 minutes is little more than £3.25 per hour. Her stated 90 minutes must have been optimistic, I think. Wonder if that is the reason it's suspended. The pink flash says PA are looking into it.

    I got that one too - sat there for hours then was suddenly full and disappeared- guess you lot are all filling it in unless she had to withdraw it.

    I sure did not get it, Mrs Soup. 2 hours' work for £7.50, sure we all have better things to do... and maybe it will come back, who knows? She can't get much meaningful data from 20 participants, surely?

    I do wonder what you could possibly do that would take that long, it would be an awful lot of questionnaires or even writing.

    It's getting more like M Turk by the day, imo; far too much work for far too little. The odd decent one still crops up but they are few and far between these days at least, for me.
