I got a exclamation on one of my studies by the payment per hour and when I click on it get more information I get the image below. Could anyone explain it? if it was different lengths in time I would understand the exclamation but its the same and the only option is my original payment. I can’t change my payment as its what I stated in my ethics but I would like to understand why I got this.
I am guessing it is because you don’t show decimal places - so I said 12.00mins but your saying the median is higher than 12mins but less than 13mins. But still not giving me a second option seems silly when there is a warning.
Hey @Laura, I hope you’ve been well!
Unfortunately, that is a bug in our new payment adjustment system. You can safely ignore the warning. We’ve logged the issue, and we’ll fix it as soon as we can
I’m one of the devs here at prolific. I’ve just released a fix that means this shouldn’t happen again in the future. We will now only flag a study as paying below your original estimate if there is at least 60 seconds between the estimate and the average amount of time to complete.
