    everytime I look towards accepting ANYTHING on prolific, I open a new window, hit gbp to usd from my quick bookmarks and check to see if it will be worth it. some days now, I have to deal but it's way less since the war began :(

    the ones I accept are more often getting my side eye, but because they are now on the same level as PickFu, as a means to an end...

    Prolific requires requesters to pay at least 6 GBP/hour. That's $7.50. A lot of requesters take advantage of that and aim to pay just that, or a little bit more. Stuff I wouldn't even think of grabbing on mturk, but because there's no reviews and no feedback from other workers you can't really know unless you try it. I don't grab anything less than 10 GBP/hr on there unless mturk is totally dead, and even then the pay is crap. It sucks.

    but gbp used to be much more. It's gone down .15 just since the war. I keep hoping they correct their economic policies less conservatively... same kath side eye...

    when gbp to usd was 1.40, prolific was effing amazing. I know researchers are taking advantage of people because they have more financial and economic knowledge... that why they are researchers. I just wish that regular people cared to understand...

    I'm a cynic about online work generally. I worked for almost 10 years doing search engine evaluation (Leapforce/Lionbridge/Appen) and it was a race to the bottom. In 2009 when I started I was making 17.50/hr with unlimited hours as an independent contractor. Then they cut the pay, then they cut the hours, then we became employees and they purposely made us part time so they wouldn't have to pay for health insurance.

    I finally stopped last spring when they cut the pay again to $9 and there was a 20 hour weekly limit.

    Some journalist called it "digital serfdom."

    I've been on the turk just as long. It's a weird, shitty part of online work. People can and will take your time for the absolute minimum and keep trying to go lower.
