    Every stew starts with the first onion.
    I took it upon myself to investigate a trifle; it had custard, jelly, soggy sponge things...

    Having just completed the 'Talk is cheap, want to bet' survey, I have now been offered it again. After the debacle a few days ago when I completed a survey 3 times but was only paid for one, is it safe to repeat a survey?

    I've just contacted Prolific as well. I got no reply from the researcher to my second message and she still hasn't paid me anything. Will let you know if I hear anything back from them.

    Hi Allison,

    Your submissions for these studies have now been approved. Apologies for the confusion, they were returned on the pre-text that the researcher had asked participants not to take part in multiple versions (that were mistakenly published at the same time), but this turned out not to be the case. Therefore, we've been working with the researchers to approve all submissions that were completed in good faith.

    Hope this helps!

    Just been paid for all of them

    £2.50 survey pops up.
    I try to reserve a place and get logged out. Log back in and it's gone again.
    Getting a bit silly now.
    The ones I did manage to get were about 20p.
    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.
