Anyone who had the same problems as me @MAX POWER , it is worth checking again. I logged on quite randomly recently and all my surveys are back! Maybe they actually processed my email and added the service provider to the list.
@Queen Jess Yep they must have fixed something as a week or so before Christmas I was getting 4 or 5 surveys a day...Not so much over the holidays but had a few this month...better than before for sure...MAX

I keep getting invites to surveys with no places, anyone else getting this I am using the extension and when I get invite there are no places, what's the point of notifying me :)

Yes - often they say there is one place left. Its best to ignore it. The other thing is that often when I click on the bar on the page I get the error message that it has been stopped. A few seconds later it works.

Is anyone else getting really fed up with the Prolific Screeners?

I understand the need for them but when you put a lot of work into what they ask for, and then you get screened out because your just human and missed something in what's been asked.

It's so annoying, and I'm really going off them.

I've not used prolific in yonks but I thought they didn't have any screeners for their surveys

They still don't. I assume this post refers to the attention checks some of the researchers put in to make sure they get decent data.

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 states don't tick any of the above, just click other and type a given word into the box. They stand out like a sore thumb after a while.

Screeners as in being screened out. I find them to be the worst for it. There was one I put a lot of effort in and gave a lot of information (written) and because there was some attention check I apparently missed then I was I screened.

My issue is I seem to be missing them, and normally I'm good at noticing them. Obviously not now. The attention checks are more than ever, but its brutal being screened out when you've put some work into it.

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.

Personally I find Prolific much better than other places for this. Probably because their tasks are typically more engaging than consumer survey places, which I do often zoom through to get them out the way.

I really enjoy prolific, that's the most amount of money I make from any surveys/research and I love the variety of tasks. :)

But only since I started having their page open all day, when I waited for invitation-emails it was close to nothing..

It is good and can pay well. I've earned over £90 this month so far. Have you installed the Prolific Assistant extension on FF and Chrome? That can help.

I have a dedicated 24" monitor with prolific and the assistant open. So it's always in my periphery vision. The monitor has already paid for itself (had I not got it for free as well lol)

Also April 2021 just after the Easter break (which was the deadest sic. I've ever seen prolific), it's been the craziest, busiest period ever and I personally don't think I have great demographics. I have heard some US folk moan about only having 5 surveys sitting in their queue on assistant and they used to get a lot, lot more. Madddd! For the rest of us, it is a cat and mouse game. But fun and exhilarating it is!
