    I haven't received Prolific emails since September 2021 despite them not being on blocked sender list and respective options on in PA account settings...

    FYI: Here's one to skip on Prolific.

    Decision Making Study (5-6 minutes)
    By wharton.upenn.edu
    £0.59 • £6.91/hr
    5 mins = is a complete joke!

    Character limitation prevents you from being able to complete the required task. I kept finding and using shorter answers, but the limitations prevented me from accurately completing the task as requested. So I returned it. Complete waste of my time. Argh!

    Ok, rant over. lol Carry on.

    I just had a survey on Mturk called "Drag and Drop" and it wanted me to download an .exe file to take the survey. DO NOT DO THAT. Could be a virus, malware, phishing, etc.

    I was wondering why they shortened it. I've never done one, is this going to be a long 80 minutes?

    I'm not sure how they are figuring the time overall. It says there is 7min waiting time included in that estimate but usually its more like 20min of waiting. The last one I did was pretty much a full hour

    Anyone could have answered it. I don't know why they said someone should be a fan.

    Is the format similar to the ones on MTurk, where you give answers and then rate each other's responses, etc...
