    Anyone else get a 10p bonus for the 4p one from the other day? I don't remember it saying there might be a bonus, but maybe the 4p was under the minimum per hour they were allowed to pay and they're topping it up?!

    Think I got one of the last places on the packaging one. It kept saying it was full after I clicked through, 4th attempt and it was available.

    Glad everyone else found it as boring as I did.

    I dont understand why they think that making us drag stuff makes it anymore interesting. Give us a scale, we can click it nice and easy. Job done.

    Instead we have to drag stuff into boxes, we cant see where it is being dragged too as they make it MASSIVE and it feels they ask the same question at least 4 times. Grr.

    Still, better then nout, and been dry ever since

    I think if that is what you, are doing you arent likely to get many surveys to be honest.

    There are not that many available currently, so those that do appear places get snapped up very quickly and are unlikely to be on the site more then a few minutes. I would imagine most of us keep the tab open most of the time (it auto refreshes) and I have the prolific assistant which pops up a notification when I get a new survey.

    Ok got it.
    I will leave the tab open instead of checking the site a few times a day, makes sense
    I wasn't aware that it auto refreshes and now I also set the account preferences to get notifications when a new study shows up.
    Cheers!

    You will most likely find your frequency of surveys is less then other sites - however in the main they pay much more then other sites, so you can earn more in 15 minutes on Prolific then in 2 hours on some other sites.

    Whether or not you earn more, I guess thats the chance we all take. We cant do multiple things at once (or if you can you are more clever then I am!)

    So far, I've only received 2 survey invite emails from Prolific, both of them were already full by the time I clicked the link. Just by checking the site though, I've completed close to 30 surveys.

    Thanks Captain Bravo & julicorn. I have them switched on. Maybe they work better with notifications on a phone rather than emails.
