    Here we go again.
    What is this life if, sweet wordsmith, we have no time to take the pith?
    Every stew starts with the first onion.
    I took it upon myself to investigate a trifle; it had custard, jelly, soggy sponge things...

    wow - just managed to do 3 surveys one after the other! I don't think that's ever happened. Most shockingly - I snagged one of the elusive ones that show up with one space remaining - and I actually got the survey!! £4.50 alone from that one, £6.79 pending from all 3

    mine has gone a little quiet, right over half term. Which is wonderful...having to catch up on highly interesting other surveys from global test market, which are thrilling stuff...

    Smodlet knows. Smodlet wonders why she bothers even to look at PA atm but it is what it is. Perhaps one will come along eventually.

    While one is happy for those on whom PA smiles, it is somewhat bad form (at least in elevated circles) to gloat about one's good fortune, what? Not quite cricket, iyswim.

    Dammit, thanks mikep22. First return of sense of humour since my loss. Cheers.

    I got an email about a study yesterday, a part 2 to something I'd done a few weeks ago. I could not believe how many studies were available to me. I did 3, but then I had to stop. There's still 3 listed for me right now and pre-screening questions.

    I had forgotten to log-in for weeks because it's generally been so quiet on there.

    I did ask for a code (last page of the survey).


    However, I checked in the data and your prolific id appears along with reasonable answers.


    I therefore unrejected you.

    He is referencing to the faces survey that was published yesterday night, if anyone could ask me if there was a code you would indeed send me from going loopy.

    Either way result
    2017 Wins - Coco Pops, £100 Amazon voucher, Elf T-shirt, £250 Zalando Voucher and £250 FeelUnique Voucher, private gig concerts
    2018 Wins - Steep xbox game, 2 tangle teezer, Contagion Book, JC Annual, water sports bottle

    Did anyone get a completion code for 'HR- and Health Management in the Digital Age' just now please? My survey went a bit do-lally at the end but appears to have submitted but with NoCode!

    That was kind of you, GT2012. Welcome.

    I actually just had a study but could not post because the site is running like a one-legged dog for me at the moment. Anyone else having problems?
