    I want to recommend another site besides Prolific. I've made $70 in the past month on UserTesting.com. You turn on your microphone or webcam and user-test a prototype website that's been submitted to the site by a company. You tell them if it's intuitive, if the links work, if the info is clear, etc. They give you the guidelines, and each usertest has a screener.

    Like Prolific and MTurk, the tasks drop one or two at a time all day, so you need a tab open all the time. A ding-ding tells you a new test is posted.But I'm not seeing any on weekends. You have to check if they can be done on a smart-phone.

    Only 90% approval though.

    Take a moment to imagine ten thousand rejections...

    Not much of one, but yes.

    Until last fall I worked part time and got home early afternoon, then relied on mturk for the rest of my income.

    But my turking income has been getting worse every year (my best year was my first -- 2015. no masters, no clue. wasn't even using a scraper type script. it seemed so much easier back then). Anyhow, broke down about 6 months ago and found a job with more hours. I hate it, but it pays the basic bills, barely. I just try to make a little money here in the evenings to cover the occasional extra or unexpected bill.

    Okay, stupid question time. How on earth do you copy/paste a code in chrome on a phone? I can select the code, but I have no idea how to put it in a clipboard or the mobile equivalent.

    Stupid mystery characters that may be capital i's or lower case L's. Probably not the number 1, but you never know.

    What I do is hold down the code or word until it "copies". Then go to the box and hold down until "paste" comes up then I click paste. I use chrome on my phone and it works fine.

    Thank you!

    I think the survey site was playing games then. Just experimenting on other sites and the copy/share/etc box pops up right away. On the survey the code highlighted with two things to adjust the selection, but the popup with what to actually DO with the selection never appeared.

    I hate phone surveys, but for $4 I'll do battle with the damn thing.

    Went even slower than normal and still hit the demographics page at a rejectable pace. Cooking it now.

    I took too long to submit it because I got interrupted during it so I had to stop then resume it half hour later. Hope I don't get rejected for "taking" too long. :nervous:

    I'd give this one a miss. The questions are endless, and for each service he asks about that you don't use, you get a writing prompt.

    Absolutely no way I could finish with a THREE MINUTE TIMER.
