    Prolific Academic Survey Alerts 25th Jan 18 at 5:58 PM
    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...

    I got booted out of a £3.45 one for inconsistency with the pre-screening questions.
    Not sure what that was as I do give honest answers. Unless I hit the wrong box by mistake.

    How do I set up alerts? I can't see any options for this on the site itself so I'm guessing it's a browser extension or something. I keep the site open in a tab while working but I think I'm missing out on some studies as it's hard to notice when the tab title changes to Prolific (1) for a new study. And if I do catch it the study is usually full by then.

    Or the site has crashed.

    I've finished the survey, but it is not allowing me to submit it. I've tried both entering the completion code and submitting without the code. Both ways are bounced back with the following error in a dialog box popping up:

    An action, complete, was requested that is not permitted for a submission in state AWAITING REVIEW. Only the following actions are permitted: return, approve, reject


    Should I choose to return the study and then notify the researchers manually of the completion?

    Edit: Okay, I refreshed the screen (F5) and then the completion code went through

    I spent well over an hour doing it, did an Inquisit section of it, then it didn't redirect either to the rest of the study or to the completion code. I've messaged the researcher but not sure if it was a problem my end or not :S
