Sounds good, just that my Facebook account is under a pseudonym so might cause problems?

Just signed up, but didn't qualify for the first study.

Should I be putting that I'm a student or not? I'm both...

Re: Earn money with the fantastic folks at Prolific Academic

I've just done two. I'm not a student. One of them didn't ask me for any demographics until the end of the study.

Re: Earn money with the fantastic folks at Prolific Academic

I think I know my problem. When asked where I was born I put Isle of Man...I think I am being screened out because of this as the studies are not including my birthplace/nationality as White British who who live in the United Kingdom. It's gotta be that surely...?

And that has been confirmed, dropped them a message and they have altered it for me and both studies are showing without having to select "Show all"...Let that be a warning select GB!!

Re: Earn money with the fantastic folks at Prolific Academic

Nope, looks like I'm not eligible because I put student. Both of the studies only required nationality, ethnicity etc, and mine are set as White, UK, UK.

There doesn't seem to be an option to change your details either... ;D

Re: Earn money with the fantastic folks at Prolific Academic

Hi everyone! I'm Katia from Prolific Academic, nice to meet you all :)

It's not possible to change your details on the site because otherwise some participants might be tempted to change their details every time a new study is posted and you probably already see why this is not so great... however you can obviously drop us a line and we see what we can do ;)

ah and be careful with making new accounts - we have some mechanisms in place for filtering (blocking) people with multiple accounts because researchers have to be sure that each participant in their studies is unique...

Just done my first test on WhatUsersDo, of course my darling dogs barked in the middle of it.

Hate the sun! It's too damn hot!
Wagering through Starburst.. YAWN..
Got confused as to why "quality control" screened me out from the survey.. apparently, I did so many surveys that day, I had already done it through a different provider. Oops!
