    FYI - I cashed out to circle this morning, money went from prolific to circle at 12:04, then transferred from circle to my bank account in around 35 minutes. No problems encountered.

    Currently doing this one, and the images are taking forever to load (hence me having time to write this comment while I'm waiting). 40 images are going to take considerably longer than 14 minutes at this rate.

    I'd feel less icky about it (but probably still fairly icky) if they were asking me to judge men's confidence/intelligence/interest in sex based on their clothes, as well as women's.

    <edit> I'm giving up on this one. I'm 10 minutes in and not even a quarter of the way through yet. Not worth it.

    I did this yesterday and had no issues with any of the pictures tbh, though some were hard to see as they were white clothes on a white background.

    I think they were just looking for perceptions based on items of clothes tbh, I wouldnt read too deeply into it!

    Please note that this will be enabled for you once:
    you have made at least 4 cash-outs (with paypal) since september 2018
    therefore your 5th cash out will be 'instant'

    Just had a face recognition one rejected for failing an attention check. I can vaguely remember having to type something different in instead of answering the question which I though I'd done but there's no way of proving it.

    Anyone else successfully challenged an attention check rejection?
    All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well.

    Pedant alert - it's could have, not could of.

    Has anyone had their submission for Education Questions (3) rejected? I had mine rejected on the basis I answered in two minutes and therefore did not complete the study meaningfully. They said not to research/google the questions so I was just having to guess or use my pitiful knowledge of biology so there was no reason for me to spend ages thinking about each question. Spending longer thinking would not have helped as biology is not my subject! I think I am being punished for being a fast reader!

  • A brilliant and gripping profile of Boris Johnson by the great @JPonpolitics well worth the 15 minute read https://t.co/odelHYEbRg
