    I took it upon myself to investigate a trifle; it had custard, jelly, soggy sponge things...

    There were 3 overall, so I am hoping it was just in the wrong place. Still oh.

    I just did the Knowledge Management one and right at the end the study crashed with all sorts of error messages saying it could not be found.

    However it is now (miraculously) showing up on my Dashboard with a completion code so fingers crossed.

    Yes, that "third attention check" had me flustered too, as it was definitely the second.

    Three in all.

    3.01 for 8 mins is decent too, nearly as much as my day job.

    Is the updated site actually supposed to be functional now? I can't do anything on it and appear to have lost some of my balance!

    I can get to the old site through: https://www.prolific.ac/studies - surveys still appear there, though I have none.

    On the plus side, I do have a delicious omelette with smoked salmon and grated cheese.

    Mine's gone completely wonky - I did a survey, it didn't end properly on the completion page so I entered the completion code manually, and that took me to the login page. So I logged in and it's only showing completed surveys up to the 16th April and an old balance! Arrgh! I hope I don't miss the 1 I just earned for that survey.

    Well, my relief was short lived.

    The the second part of the three parter that started last week (it's one paragraph 2 questions FYI) was being directed to PA and it logged me out, and upon trying to log in the recaptcha thing said it was for test purposes only and to let admin know if I can see it. I now cannot close my submission at all

    That's the one I just tried to do! Let's hope it gets sorted. I've now been changed to the new site, but everything's still wrong!

    I emailed the researcher and explained what happened (mainly as I want to be able to do all 3 and get the bonus 4) and PA too.

    It is, Mike - I just cashed out on Monday so my balance should be nothing!
