    Here we go again.
    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...

    I suppose one would wash such an item in boiling water for two minutes...?

    No doubt the pinnacle of that model's career.

    I did that study. It was a waste of time. It said I got 2 basic questions wrong and 18 complex questions correct so my total payment is 2.40. Then it says if the total payment is less than 2.50 you have to return the study. So two questions wrong, and you get nothing at all.

    I believe it said that if you return the study then the amount you earned, 2.40 in your case, would be paid as a bonus payment.

    Interesting. I said I too got 2 "basic questions" wrong. And that I was deducted 1 but given 1...but I wouldve raged, had I just spent 30 mins of my time to be fobbed off like that.

    Sadly we need to take screengrabs at every turn these days

    I sent in a rant email to Prolific about the survey last night - and later today we got at least 50p back - so I am guessing more then just me complained about it - but every little noodles up!

    I got that email about getting the extra 50p, but my subbmission has been approved with only the extra bonus I was already promised at the end of the study, not the 50p on top. Ho hum.

    The email stated that the issue only applied to some users, so the researcher marked everybody as answering that question correctly. If you've received the bonus you were told at the end of the study, then you weren't one of the users affected.

    I've just seen the study page. It says the potential reward for the study ranges from 0.00 to 3.05 So getting less than 2.40 seems part of their criteria.

    Pah.
    Just missed out on a 12 10 minute survey because it was another one where it was computer only and told me I was ineligible because I was on the wrong device. Couldn't even start it on the phone.
    Looks like they might be doing this a bit more often.
    All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well.

    Pedant alert - it's could have, not could of.

    Did this one open OK for you Smodlet, I'm getting an error message.
