    Populus Live

    I don't know if anyone else on here still uses Populus, but they've recently changed their name to Y Live. The good news is, since the name change, they've become much busier. I've chugged along with Populus for a few years usually reaching the £50 payout every 6 months or so, but so far this...

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

    I'm not sure what it is exactly, but it's popped up a few times. I used to decline it, now I just accept it - I don't think it'll make any difference as to whether they can you or not.

    Just joined the waiting list as well. Online work has gone a little quiet for me lately, so a good reminder to have as many irons in the fire as possible. (y)

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

    They are still owned by the same people. A chap called Phelim used to post as Prolific on here (not since 2017 from the look of things) & he's the co-founder (they were Oxford Uni students at the time I think). It's odd because in other respects they are still the model of how to run a survey...

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

    I love Prolific, but this does concern me. It's poor that they don't give a definite reason for banning your account. Their Trustpilot reviews are full of complaints from long-time users who suddenly find their accounts closed and whilst Prolific make the effort to reply to every one, it's just...

    Banking Quahl Referral Offers

    I'll add mine too then, Quahl is an attempt by ex-PayPal guys to create a new payment system instead of payment cards that were designed in the 1950s. The system uses its own currency, the quahl, and to get people to start using the system once it's ready they are allocating quahls for free to...

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

    I'm gonna be like the annoying kid who keeps putting up his arm in class, but does anyone know roughly how long it usually takes to get accepted or rejected for projects? I have 4 screeners completed (3 last week, 1 today), but nothing seems to be happening so far.

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

    I got lucky with a 2-part survey that paid £13, but aside from that it's been very dry with Prolific this month. I think they've taken off in America too which explains why the surveys fill up so quickly. Also, Prolific Assistant is rubbish now - I think the guy who created it has sold it to...

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

    Cheers Jon, I think I will then. I've also realised I should give my LinkedIn profile a little bit of care and attention - well, maybe expand it beyond my name!

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

    I've just signed up for Respondent (trying to broaden my earnings!) and noticed this. I don't have a work email - can I just put my Gmail or Yahoo mail address in? (I mean, I know I could, but is it a good idea or will I just be looked upon as a scammer?!)

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

    Prolific has been a lot less well...prolific over the last couple of months. I've noticed surveys filling up much more quickly and I randomly stumbled across a link to their blog on the Prolific Twitter account. They had a spike of 30,000 new participants in late July after going viral on...

    Haven't done one before, but I'd be happy to if you're still looking for people.

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

    Does anybody else keep getting a message pop up saying a new version of Prolific is available if you click refresh? I click it and exactly the same version loads up. Then a day or so later I get the same message again.

    To be honest, I'm thinking the same. Anything for an easy life!

    Testable Minds

    I joined Testable Minds a month or so back & I'm really liking it. It's like having another Prolific, albeit with fewer studies. What I haven't done yet is open a Revolut account. From what I can see it's basically a way of exchanging currencies or trading Bitcoin or gold easily through an...

    Energy bills - are Utility Warehouse any good?

    Thank you everyone! Mind made up, I'm going onto the comparison sites & looking into Octopus - something felt a bit too good to be true about UW.

    Energy bills - are Utility Warehouse any good?

    One of my neighbours has recently become an agent for Utility Warehouse as his other business (events management) is on hold until Corona is over. I did him a favour the other day & we got talking, & he told me he reckoned he could save me £500-£800 a year on my energy bills (which sounds a bit...

    Mugging question

    Sweet, thanks Jon. I have a tendency to over-think things & the PA forum definitely feeds that. Determined to keep it simple & manageable so I can make this work. Cheers.
