    My first experience with Circle seemed alright. My payout from Prolific to Circle took two days but I think that was mainly Prolific. Surveys have been slow. I am only managing to get about one or two a day.

    Today was a good day! Got almost $10 in surveys within an hour.

    I can go a long time with hardly any, and then get a ton in a one to two day span. But it is still a nice little side thing. Can't wait for the site revamp.

    I just now signed up for it. Unfortunately I have to wait for their confirmation. Any tips for when I finally get on?

    I think it is instant. You just keep the page open for surveys. The surveys appear slowly. Also, make sure you fill out all of the profile stuff to qualify for the surveys.

    Nah, it says they aren't accepting new people at the moment. I gave my info so I'd get an email when they are.

    I might be more likely to get help posting in the daily thread, but I'll put it here first.

    Just tried to do a study on PA. Without giving too much detail, it was pretty typical Inquisit E-key, I-key categorization task. I could type in demo info before the E-I task, but E and I didn't work in the full-screen task itself. The same thing happened yesterday as well. Anyone else having issues?

    I went without any surveys for about 4 weeks. I contacted them about it and they replied that my account had been frozen but they couldn't figure out why so they restored it. I have gotten a couple since then. I've never gotten many and I have never received any kind of email saying they are available either though I signed up for notifications. The little button doesn't work for me either.

    NOW, suddenly, this morning, I am getting MULTIPLE surveys and the little button works! No email notifications though!

    Did you get your Daily Lifestyle Behaviors and Psychological Functioning done? Anybody?
    I actually got one rejection but they did approve the rest. Yay because that was actually a lot for me to check in at night and do those.

    Woah! Did everybody know this but me?!

    "Referrals
    As of 14 March 2019 the participant referral scheme has been retired. Participants who have signed up via referral link and have not yet cashed out have until 12 May 2019 to do so. If these participants cash out after 12 May 2019 the referrer will not receive their referral fee.

    At Prolific, building a high quality pool of participants to take part in world-leading research is one of our biggest priorities. We are keen to grow this pool in as balanced a way as possible, to discourage population biases and maximise diversity.

    This is a decision we have carefully considered as a team. Analyses performed by our research team indicate that participant referrals can cause problems by reinforcing certain demographics in our participant pool – a tendency we would like to curb in order to improve the diversity of our pool.

    This change has some upsides for both researchers and participants: It will allow us to distribute studies across our pool more evenly. This should mean that fewer participants will find it hard to get any studies.

    researcher referral scheme is still active."
