    Eh? Am I missing something? 6 minutes for 60p is par for the course, if not amazing. Certainly not poor.

    On the homepage there are not many surveys and only 1 paying half decent money. Mega boo.

    Has anyone elses Prolific Assistant extension stopped working? It does check for studies, but still says there are non available to me despite me going onto PA manually and seeing that I do indeed have studies with many places left, so it's not a case of missing the last place. :/

    This TJ Allen is really having problems with his personality study, anybody else have it popping up constantly with a different number of places available each time?

    Mine too has stopped working, not that it has had much to ping about for many a long day.

    Check4Change doesn't work for me properly any more either. Apart from a 17p survey earlier today I haven't had any for weeks!

    Just tried to install visual ping but it can't find the page because PA does not open; just hangs. Grrrr.

    Anyone anorexic or bulimic? If so, there's a study for ya. Why don't they want to know from chips addicts?

    Although there is no longer a Prolific score, does anyone know if rejections still count towards getting less studies?

    I got rejected for a study because of failing the attention check questions. The attention questions were asked for reading 16 different newspaper articles. How they expect you to remember things that specific I don't know especially when they had about 3 or 4 attention check questions.

    I generally copy and paste those into a word document. Still counts as paying attention as I have to go back and look at them I reckon.

    I'm not sure that the prolific score counted for that much, one rejection didn't seem to affect it once you had done a fair few studies, possibly lots of rejections would have done. I can't quite see how anyone but prolific would know if they are using rejections against us- my general impression is that it has nothing to do with it as we are all getting way fewer studies this year.
