    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.

    According to one of the ones that are not letting me in 563 places have been taken out of 2700. How come other people can do it and I can't? I'm using a laptop, not a tablet or mobile.

    message for the "Learn about someone new" study now has the message:

    Sorry we can't accept submissions to this study, 5bbf889fdf631b000195fba0, at the moment. The study is either full or not in a published state. Please refresh to see if study is still available.
    Knowing that it isn't full, it must be "not in a published state".

    Been like this since Friday for me had about 8 that were showing as having places but would't let me complete was thinking my account had been blocked until I finally managed to get the Supplier Selection Game which I had to return because I couldn't get the eye tracking to work and It looked like it was aimed at people who buy supplies as part of there job
    Have signed out for today and hope they fix the problems soon.
