Never had that happen before...

    this has come up before and it was aimed at a very small group of respondents who had been sent the password- begs the question why they didn't just pre select those people to get the survey in the first place so no one else sees it as you are not supposed to get stuff on prolific that you are not eligible for.

    I had this happen with a survey several months ago. The researcher said I'd taken 2 minutes and it should have been 5 so they weren't going to pay me. I'm a quick reader so I do tend to get through surveys quickly and I was a bit annoyed. I probably should have taken it up with PA but it was a 40p survey and in the end I had other stuff to do and didn't contact them.

    I signed up to Prolific three weeks ago, had five studies in the first two days earning a total of about 3, and nothing since, just more and more personal pre-screening questions. I'm tempted to delete all my answers and try entering them again... with tweaks!

    I also read very quickly (c 2000 wpm) so often finish surveys much quicker than the stated average. I usually simply leave it for a few minutes to avoid any problems, until the submit time is close to the average. I don't feel I'm cheating anyone as I do take the surveys seriously but I can't be bothered to have to prove it.

    I can't be bothered disputing it with PA for the sake of 81p. I think the average completion time was 4 minutes or something when I went back to look at it.

    That happened to me as well, when I was half way through the survey, so I had to give up.

    It was my first survey since 26/01/2018, so I was quite excited. I joined Prolific on 10/12/2017, and made 20 in my first six weeks, which I thought was excellent, but it's been dead recently

    Wow and congrats, MLE007, if anyone deserves it, you do. I received 10 once, yours is more than double! Well done to whoever that was; they must have the patience of a saint.
