    Privacy is cool and all, but if you have or had baby ducks and baby cocks/chickens - you should probably post pics. Just saying.

    @SunlitSunflower plz

    I'm aware. My question was, how are they ensuring it's not a VOIP? And do you actually trust them to leave that as the extent of their use of that particular piece of data?

    I mean, if you don't care, you don't care. And that's fine. But it isn't a privacy issue (for me), it's a control issue. They want to exert levels of control over our ability to work that shouldn't exist in a contractor position. Or at the very least should have consideration given in kind, and that's not happening.
    More like taking a piss with the door open so some rando with a fetish pays a third party which you'll get a cut of, while they watch and decide if you piss the way they like and if not you're not allowed to use the toilet again but, predictably, they wont actually tell you why or if you can pee better since there's always someone else who needs to take a piss.

    Now we're sufficiently in weird territory.. @THFYM I'm out before urbandictionary links get dropped loool

    The phone number is part of your account settings, not your "About Me" section. If they're allowing account settings to get dropped into the dataset, they'd also be revealing your PayPal ID. Which I'm sure PayPal would kick their ass over for allowing such a sensitive data breach, even accidental.

    I think I'm improperly conveying two issues here.
    1. Leaking data is just something they do because they're careless with participant well-being (IMO). I'm not saying they are currently leaking your phone #, I'm just saying they are not a reliable store of PII
    2. Above being unreliable, I think in some cases they're just pretty rotten. And because they can use your phone # to verify your demographic data, whether you actually provide it (demos) to them or not. That, to me as a participant, would be a bad faith use of the collection of that piece of data.
    Absolutely not trying to argue with you, just wanted to make sure the 2nd part was clear because I was just vaguely hinting around the problem.
    Their goal, ideal scenario is for a participant to only complete 1 survey/week. So yea, I don't think they have my best interests at heart here as someone who still can't withdraw the $1 he made 3 years ago.

    In an ecosystem where the lifespan of a single p can be a week or two they want a platform where the majority of people filtering in/out can't even meet the minimum withdrawal threshold for their earnings in twice that time, earnings which revert back to Prolific after a set period of time.

    The whole design needs to be burned & start from scratch.

    Was wondering if anyone else got a rejection from Christine Hu? The reason was “I’m really sorry. But I didn’t know the last question could not generate the code. I will have to re-publish it. Sorry for the time.” I’ve sent an email and waiting to hear back.

    6 months, and minimum cashout is $5. If within 18 months you haven't hit the £5.00 cashout amount, then your whole balance reverts. Says right in the TOS, and in the FAQ when signing up there's multiple mentions of the £5.00 minimum. Even mTurk had a $1.00 minimum, though I'll grant you that the 79 cents I had in there between 2016 and 2018 sat untouched.

    I'd do a little digging using her university email address and find her IRB in case she won't reverse the rejection. She has your data. You fulfilled your end of the deal.

    Most everyone does at the £5.00 mark anyway because if they fold overnight, you're screwed and the money is gone.
