    Here we go again.

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

    I swear every email from Prolific I have had over the last few weeks about available surveys has directed me to a survey which was already full up. The one today I mustve been clicking on the link 1 minute after recieving the email.
    Thats just poor IMHO.

    However I would strongly recommend you at least try to sort it out with the researcher first, ask them for exact reasons as to why they seemed it wasnt good enough (if they cant, this surely puts you in a stronger position, if its poor, ditto - but if they come back with something strong then you will be in a weaker position but not make a fool of yourself by complaining).

    Ive not completed a survey in a while, which is a mildly irritating.....

    Bet they decline a lot of people then seeing as there is a few of us here, the reason they gave was rubbish. As though they were trying to find a reason to turn me down.

    They kept coming up with more bad reasons why they declined me when I contacted them. "unclear" "ambiguous" etc as the reason for it.

    The last message said to contact prolific "If you are dissatisfied with my decision you are, of course, entitled to lodge a complaint directly with Prolific."

    Your either eligable, or your ineligable...you do not "become" eligable. You would only see if it you were eligable, so maybe the issue is it is full?

    You seem to have had a bit of a fluke run - I wouldn't bank too much on you getting the £180 any quicker then anyone else though. £30 a month is about par.

    I've had a surprisingly bad run recently and only had a 35p one in the last week - these things happen. Made it up elsewhere so no big.

    I know, that is why it was annoying me. I just clicked on not interested in the end.

    When I was doing it last year I was averaging about £20 a month, but I was helped by being a dreadful job so did a number a work. Will have to see how I go with just evenings and weekends from now on

    another £3 from two surveys this morning.

    The second one was for £2 and I think has given me RSI in my finger

    Did a skype interview this evening (voice only) about social media and customer service for £10. About 30 minutes talking and paid instantly on finishing the call
