Over the weekend I'm dumping this site. The bone-idle owner has done absolutely nothing with it. He hasn't updated it, refreshed its look, joined in, dealt with spammers - nothing at all.

I've found it of great value over the years with lovely people who've been nothing but helpful and polite but...

..the owner can now shove his skinny Sunak-suit, gelled hair and propensity to start every sentence with 'so' (this is my mind's eye speaking now) up MikesBush.

Thank-you.

Wonder if mentioning MikesBush automatically triggers another spam post? :ROFLMAO:

I think they have been known to chat each other without really knowing what routine to engage :p "Does not compute, Does not compute!"

I have not got to that stage yet, but I can go days without even thinking about logging on. There will be nothing left to sell if they ever get round to it.

I'm about the press the trigger and move over to the Scrimpr site that's apparently just been set up I believe. Hopefully, many will follow and this bloke can do one.

Well, I would delete my account but I can't find anywhere in my profile/preferences/settings that lets me :rolleyes:
I'm trying the 'contact me' page to see if that works

the owner hasn't been online since Jan, says it all really, I'm guessing the mods do there bits out of the goodness of their heart but only if the owner actually cares about the site hence why all the mods left.

I'm still tempted to set one up, looking at forum software now

Had two of the rating tasks today....I don't know if I left it too long to begin the survey or whether you can only do one per day. Anyway, I ran upstairs to do a task and when I came back there were no tasks left so I had to return it. Has anyone else had that? Still one is very nice and I like that they are paid immediately.

I had a couple recently where they apparently ran out of task but they paid me anyway (£15 x 2). I reported it in case anyone thought I was cheating and threw me off the whole site but no-one seems to care...

I've also had no reply from the contact form so now I'm getting miffed because this bloke still has obligations under DP regs and I want my data deleted.

I'll dig around the domain sites to see if there's any contact with him but I don't suppose, in the meatime, anyone's in any kind of contact with Jon to see if he's got contact details for this flake?

Hi @Jute

Here is the email that @JamesM sent to us two years ago. It may help you get in touch with him via his company mentioned in it or via LinkedIn.

Hello Everyone!
On Wednesday 22nd I took ownership of themoneyshed.co.uk and wanted to introduce myself…

About Me
My name is James Moore, I live in Essex with my girlfriend and our kitten Mushroom I run an IT Company in Bishop’s Stortford called Genmar, where I have been working for over 8 years. I have been an active member in many previous forum communities and have helped run / moderate several in the past.
When I first saw the money shed, I was amazed by the sense of community, support, and togetherness. I realised instantly this was something I needed to be involved with. After many conversations with Jon, we agreed for me to take over ownership of the site while Jon moves onto a new venture.

What Going to change?
Nothing!
I subscribe to the belief if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. So, I think we should keep the site just how it is.
But I would love to hear your thoughts. My email address is james@themoneyshed.co.uk, please email me or send me a message on the forum if you have any thoughts of how we can improve the site.

How can I get involved?
Contribute
- The reason this site is great is because of its community, so keep doing what you are doing! Get involved on the forums, share the site with your friends and family and get in contact about any improvements you want made.
Compete – We will be running regular competitions on the forum, to giveaway money and prizes to our members. Keep an eye on the forum for more details and to get involved!
Communicate – If you can think of anything we can do to improve the service I would love to hear your thoughts, send me an email at james@themoneyshed.co.uk.
Cultivate – I am looking to enlist a team of members to help grow our community. As a team we can brainstorm new promotion ideas and share the rewards if they work out. For more information and to sign up click the link below.

I’m looking forward to getting to know you all better.

Kindly
James Moore

Thanks for that. I'll have a scratch around over the next few days and see if I get anywhere.

Yes actually, I emailed them too in a similar situation. I ran out of questions (having skipped foreign ones) so only logged maybe 40 mins. They didn't reply but I was paid. Finding it hard to log much work this week, I wonder if it is because a lot of schools are on holiday, parents at home etc. I'm just not quick enough even if I have the page open while I'm doing something else.

Yeah with regards to Prolific I think you do need Prolific notifier now. It is very competitive and within second a study will fill up unless it is targeted one or big one usually has less money attached. Really need these universities to get bigger budgets :p
It's getting so hard now to get better-paying studies. I see the 1 appearing in my tab and I'm there within half a second clicking on the link but I still usually miss out, even if they are looking for a good number of participants. I have recently added the extension but it never dings, and if it does ding there are no studies so it's dinging at nothing. A great help :LOL:

Have you got your ding turned on? :unsure:

There's a large small paying election one on there now. I have to keep logging in and out of the notifier as it's not very reliable on Chrome for me.

Yeah that Prolific election one had 30000 places.. Need unis offering that many. Something i found as well is if it says survey is full keep clicking apply like a thermal nuclear weapon and you might catch someone drop off so worth doing.., They done something to time the user session out a few months ago so it appears signed in but isnt a current session so nothing appears. Cloud has something similar where they ask you do you want to stay signed in.
