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

    It has been picking up the last week IMHO. I cashed out last weekend and I am up to 18 with 5 pending already.

    It is neither purple nor troll-like (trollesque?) The little and fluffy parts are correct. So there.

    Ive had 4 surveys since I got back from work, not bad at all.

    Out of interest - what is others approach to cashing out? As I approach my 2nd year on Prolific I've had some experience of it, I think my largest was 40 or so. I usually do it when I hit 20 to avoid fees - but right now I am on 25 with a further 7 pending....and no major need to cash out right now (tis my birthday on Thursday and the good bank of mum and dad have sent me funds as a gift).

    Used to be the case that Prolific would charge, I cannot remember the exact figure, for cashing out between 5-20 with PayPal. I think there is still a charge with PayPal, but as I use Circle I havent paid it much attention recently.

    1 a day, per site. I use a lot of sites....

    I am below that with qmee at the minute with 10 for the month, but as I am doing well with Prolific, and have also met the 50 goal with Populous (and only 250 points off with YouGov) - I am less fussed.

    And am doing ok with Swagbucks, Opinion Outpost - but global test market has taken a back seat recently.
