Never heard of that before but I will definitely have a look, thanks!
Nah, not keen on it, so far I only did one survey for 1Pound, all the others screened me out. Not worth my time, I stick to prolific , where this hardly ever happens

Have you done the video qualifier bit to unlock the higher paying tasks? Otherwise all you get is a few lower paying surveys from time to time.

Another thing to keep in mind is your phone. I'm still using iPhone 6s and all their phone surveys require at least iPhone 8, so no good for me. The ones you do on your laptop are great though and they pay $8.

Wow, the most I've made with them for 1 survey was £7. I do appreciate the low cash in threshold too. I haven't had a survey from them in 10 days but I keep checking. I guess it's because it's August and academics have gone on holiday!

I’ve recently launched a chrome extension that automatically reserves places in Prolific studies, based on the criteria you input (such as minimum £/hour), and sends you a desktop notification or pings you an email (so you get a notification to your phone).

You can check out the website prolificreserver.com or check the extension store page (click here), and see if it looks like something you’d be interested in using.

Keys are £8.00 each and can be used on mutliple devices (though one key is required per user).

You don’t get them every day and some are mobile some are computer. They email you. You won’t always be eligible for the studies. But I definitely always try and do them as soon as they email me because they’re so quick and easy and they’re always $8 or $5, mainly $8. Easy money lol. Good luck. Oh and it takes 3 weeks to get paid, but they always pay and you’ll just get random emails saying Intellizoom has sent you $8. It’s great.
Yeah, I do save my confirmation emails so I can always check if I've got a payment due, but I like the way it just comes through when you're not expecting it.

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 TikTok, which explains a lot. It does appear to have caused them some problems with researchers though, as the new sign-ups are heavily skewed towards 20-something females, which means studies are getting massively weighed towards a single demographic.

For us as participants I guess it just means fewer opportunities. Hopefully some of the lull has been due to the summer holidays too.

Anyway, if anyone's interested, the blog is here: We recently went viral on TikTok - here's what we learned

That's really useful and interesting. Thanks

Yes, tiktok is the source of many ills. I probably get 'study full' 90% of the time, and there's less studies coming through anyway. It's becoming a bit shit.

I can imagine the same problem happening is Respondent went viral and a load of new people signed up that were mostly skewed to a female demographic.

HOWEVER I would hazard a guess that they have better things in place to determine who can apply for studies than Prolific seems to have (not) had.

So this is why I haven't had any surveys for ages :cry:
I really miss the money as it is a good earner and enjoyable to do.

Anyone got any suggestions for other surveys to keep me going till they get their Tik Tok girlie situation sorted out?

Miss you Prolific please come back soon :(

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 Prolific so it pings the site a lot less than it used to which means surveys are often gone before you get to see them.

All in all a bit rough!

I’ve recently launched a chrome extension that automatically reserves places in Prolific studies, based on the criteria you input (such as minimum £/hour), and sends you a desktop notification or pings you an email (so you get a notification to your phone).

Has anyone tried this? I'm more than happy to buy a key, but a bit worried if Prolific will ban my ass for using it!

Anyone getting a error 500 page when they try to go to any of the pages except for the studies page?
I can’t request payment or anything as I just get an error if I press on the tab on my Username which allows you to cash out and see your email address etc.
I have sent in support tickets but nothing back no response at all.

No. All good here (except for the lack of surveys...)

Ah ok thanks for letting me know. Just checking in case everyone is getting that error. I am still getting a few studies through though they have dried up slightly that could be just to do with demographics.

Mine's OK, but that still doesn't mean that I'm getting any studies - nope, edit that! I can't access my account either :(
Prolific assistant seems very hit and miss lately too.

Ok thanks looks like it is definitely an issue with Prolific then. Hopefully that will get fixed quickly.
