    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...

    Remember the near identical surveys where I only got paid for 1 out of 3? Following some of your comments (above) I went back to the researcher AGAIN, who replied that it is unfortunate, but that is what prolific advised her to do (Ie mark them as returned). So I've still only been paid for 1.

    I contacted both the researcher and prolific as all 3 of mine had been returned the researcher answered first and paid for 1 saying there had been a mix up and I should only have been allowed to complete 1
    I then received a reply from prolific basically saying the researcher had tried to pull a fast one by saying they had informed people only to complete 1 when they clearly hadn't I then received payment for the other 2.
    Just contact prolific and tell them the other 2 were returned ask why and tell them you never returned them,
    Usually when there are multiples of the same survey there is a note saying please do not complete if you have competed and the title of others on this occasion this was not the case,

    Still, £2.50 is a packet of eggs and some bread. Fried egg Mikewiches all round.
