    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...

    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.

    Was wondering this myself this is the first rejection I've ever had so I was a little annoyed I did contact prolific to complain as I think 20p is a joke for 30 wasted minutes but I've not had a reply yet.

    Anyone tried to do the Workplace Cognitions for Christopher Jackson study just now? Taking 2 hrs and paying £10. Spent an hour on it and then got to a page saying 'You are not authorised to use.......(some gizmo or other). Couldn't get any further....very annoying!!!

    The being paired thing is usually a hoax and you get paired with the computer. If you really are being paired then how do they plan to do that with 15 participants - surely they need an even number to do pairs. I would complain to the researcher about that. Can you see from the survey how long the average completion is? If it's 20 minutes they should be paying accordingly.

    I was most miffed.

    I just did one about twitter - 6 mins, £1. A few places were there.

    No info about your twitter is needed - just rate a load of questions (which feel like they repeat a little). Dull. Easy squeezy.
