    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...

    After a study-free week last week, I've had a few more show up this week

    Is the Prolific Assistant extension working on the new website for anyone? I uninstalled it when it started glitching a while back, but was hoping the developers would have updated it by now.

    I find the Distill one works great now so thanks again for that.

    The first survey for days is on PA early this morning but I can't do it. The survey needs to take place over three days and I'm going away today. It will be great for others though.

    I dont find this. I only get the alerts for surveys I have qualified for now with the extension. Are you using Chrome?

    I just had a survey for men on booze. Always a tad shameworthy.....like, Im a teacher, leave me alone...

    I had the women version of that.

    In fact, I've got the day off and have already done 5 surveys on Prolific today! Earned a bit over £10 this week (my first week) already, but only £4.70 have been approved so far. Either way, looks like I'll be able to cash out soon, and it's a bit more fun/varied than most survey sites.

    I thought the alcohol one was quite irresponsible. Asking people rate on a scale on 1 - 5 how much they'd been sexually assaulted while drunk. :/

    I agree, it was completely inappropriate with no warning and far too small a payment for such invasive, rude questions.

    I gave up on that one - I kept finding they didn't have the options for the answers I wanted to give!

    Oo-er, Value. I could swear I said it was in "Europe, country not specified" although I suppose that could be said to include the UK...
