Yes, I saw that. I cashed out £250 on Saturday, so got in just in time.
That was lucky!! Seriously struggling to get on any study at the moment....they just go so fast. I've not seen it this bad before, maybe they've taken on more people?

Mine is very glitchy. Have to sign out and sign in every time I put the laptop on. Not that I can hardly catch a survey at the moment.

I’m still managing to get surveys but lately the notifications aren’t working at all.

Just had a study pop up which looked like it was recruiting cloud workers, which I thought was a bit iffy. The study was worth 30p, with the option to do further work for £6 an hour, presumably outside of Prolific. I've had a few lately that looked a bit dubious, asking for personally identifying details, such as postcode, name and real email, which I thought was against Prolific rules. Needless to say, I bomb out of anything like that. I had an annoying one a few weeks back that rejected my work because I didn't supply a completion code, when the didn't supply one to give. Reported it to Prolific, but nothing was done and the researcher never replied to my email. The vast majority of studies on there are still great, but there's just those odd ones that aren't, so the cyber attack didn't really surprise me.

It's just changed for me in the last 12 or so days, can't seem to catch one. They go in fractions of a second, it must literally be people with the tab open. I did get an AI one the other day, thankfully, but maybe the criteria for those are different. I was randomly wondering if the cost of living crisis is really starting to bite and people are just looking for more cash.....I know the longer it goes on , the more depleted people's savings will be and food prices are still really stupid. Have you signed up to the Cloud one? I've had a survey on there already and haven't even verified my photo ID yet.

Did manage to get 2 today.. if it says full you can still keep applying until it fully disappears. Its better to do that with ones that have higher spots available. I was doing for a minute or two and caught a space.

I don't know what has changed but it does seem to be much harder to get any of the decent paying surveys now on Prolific.

Yes signed up to Cloud and all verified, I have had 3 small paying surveys so far this week, which is good but it's nowhere near as busy as Prolific is.

I still manage to get studies. Sometimes I log on and they’re just there… I’ve built up £30 in 13 days and I don’t do them all the time :confused:

Edit: It’s actually 8 days, because 5 of the 13 days I didn’t do any studies.

Well after moaning about not getting many studies, I had a lengthy test and training this morning. I wonder if this is the one you did @Jute It took me about 2 hours because I wanted to get it right and they did say they wanted accuracy over speed. I hope I passed....

No, I haven't had that one. I had 1 of the image preference ones a day or so ago and the rest are bits and bobs. My alert also seems a bit hit and miss like others at the moment.

I'm hoping to get onto the 'leaving the site' thing over the weekend - I haven't managed to get to it yet.

Does anyone know if the alert works on any other server apart from Google Chrome.

Had loads of work on Sunday when I had to do my store job so I couldn't do any :( very little since, apart from a 15 mins one this morning. Managed to get on it as it was 7:30am. The alert otherwise hasn't worked, I've installed, uninstalled, logged in and out multiple times but just can't get it to work.

Different surveys, but does anyone do the Nectar ones now?I used to do them ages ago but don't know if they're worth it now. They have a quick 60 pointer for watching a video on their main site ending today.

I’ve just contacted support about the notifications not working, hopefully they sort it out.
