I have posted a study over half an hour ago and up till now not even one person started it.
I have a custom pre-screening with over 6100 participants eligible and the reward was rated by the Prolific system as “good”.
The study is, essentially, a copy of a bunch pf studies I did on Prolific in February (with modifications within the questionnaire but not study description nor in its parameters) so they should not influence recruitment. The previous study had the participants’ list half full after half an hour.
Now: nothing. I’m worried if I’ll be able to conduct the study at all.
Due to the nature of the study (participants playing a peculiar research game), I’d prefer to be able to reply to participant messages while they are doing the study. This means I need to be online checking for messages on Prolific while the study is open. Previously it meant remaining online for 2-4 hours. Now I can’t even estimate, because I’ve yet to see even one participant.
Could you help me with that or do you have any tips on what I should do for this study to take off?
