    Here we go again.
    What is this life if, sweet wordsmith, we have no time to take the pith?

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

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

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

    The code is JSRC5H3T, onedaysomeday.

    Response from the researcher:

    "Prolific contacted me this morning to explain that there had been a problem with their system between 7am and 9am, and that this had prevented the surveys from accepting the completion codes. However, it seems that this did not prevent the survey responses being captured successfully. Hence, I should have a record of any responses/submissions made between 7-9am and, therefore, plan to make the payments as normal."

    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!

    Glad to hear, onedaysomeday!
    The survey has appeared on my studies page but said timed out. I added the completion code anyway and hope the researcher does honour it as they said they would. It seems to have reverted to the old site again though, despite getting an email saying I'd been picked for beta testing!

    A question to people using the new site, does the page notifier plugin work with it? As the Prolific blog post mentioned that page notifiers might not work with the new site.

    I've found its only ever worked sporadically, and more often then not you get a notification when a survey is already full. Just refresh the page manually every few minutes and you will get better results in my experience.

    Mine is still on the old one, even after a quick blip to the new one yesterday. Balance has been fixed though.

    Only for those who did Part 1 of the Financial Risks Study back in Sept/Oct.

    P.S. No rage here, I have yet to see this new version of PA. Sounds as if they had better keep it to themselves until they can get it to work. Typical software update, let the end users test it for free.

    A quick update on this as I notice the researcher keeps adding places after reading a long list of instruction and waiting 20 minutes to be paired your then told sorry for the inconvenience and given a code.
    The researcher then rejects your submission and pays a 20p bonus.
