    Coronavirus Discussion So.... The Coronavirus / COVID-19

    The 800 deaths shortly after vaccination is true, although it needs to be seen in context. The Government data is not hidden: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-vaccine-adverse-reactions/coronavirus-vaccine-summary-of-yellow-card-reporting 'The MHRA has received...

    Coronavirus Discussion So.... The Coronavirus / COVID-19

    My daughter had her first AZ jab last month and is 28. So she'll still have to have her second jab. It is a bit of a worry, but with her health problems, its definitely worth the tiny risk.

    Question / Discussion Could this be because of serpclix? IP address blacklisted

    I got banned for a while, as my router went gumpy and was making it look like I was using a proxy. I also got banned from several survey sites for the same reason. I factory reset it and after a few weeks was able to resume searching. (And doing surveys)

    Question / Discussion Has anyone actually won any of these phantom 'prize draws'?

Anything that I win is a bonus. I've won everything on my wish list over the years. The only things that I haven't...

    Surveys [OT] Earn money with the fantastic folks at Prolific Academic

    I copy and paste any text to refer to later in the study, because there is no way that I will remember a minute piece of information in a sea of words! When there is a list of options, with a longish text above, you can pretty much guarantee that there will be a sentence at the bottom which...

    Question / Discussion Has anyone actually won any of these phantom 'prize draws'?

    It's a numbers game, the more you enter the more chance you have of winning. On average, a person wins 1 prize for around every 500 to 1000 entries. I enter around 200 a day and sometimes don't win anything for months, sometimes several prizes a week. The easier it is to enter, the higher the...

    Some Comping Hints & Tips

    I use my personal accounts. It is against Facebook rules to have more than one account and you risk losing both if you get caught. I share to a public group on FB, so my friends don't see the comping posts on my timeline. (You can set up your own public group, or find a competition sharing...

    Online / Offline Focus Groups Respondent - Like Prolific but a bit more involved and higher paying

    I was lucky in that I got on a 6 month study, which was then continued for another 6 months. I then recently got an add on project to the original one, which lasts until June :)

    Coronavirus Discussion So.... The Coronavirus / COVID-19

    Him indoors is in the same boat! Nothing nearer than 40 miles away. Really annoying, as there is a big vaccination centre less than a mile away.
